As one who suffers from anxiety, I'm gonna go the wrong way here and vote for an early demo.

CDOSFR I'll vote for. If people are too lazy to be patient for the release that's fine with them.

One released demo will shut them up without whining about the full release.

Get your tone down, there is absolutely no reason to start being rude to people.

I personally don't mind seeing the Phase 1. I mean, while it may be limited. I'm pretty sure the dev team do everything they can to make it bug-free before the release to prevent the NNK like release. As they already mentioned:



But that's me.
agreed, we need a small cookie :D

Non-FP members without HL validated shouldn't be allowed to vote. Or we'll get all the "YOU WILL GIVE" guys voting for the second option.

Non-orange names should not get a say... It's not even known if they own Half-Life, and if they don't, why does this matter to them? They won't be able to play either of the two versions.

I think that while Option 1 is preferred and good, in the long run Option 2 might be more beneficial. As Phase 1 rolls out there will be lots of new people learning of it and starting to play and as a result more people might get aware of ESF and might want to pitch in to help in toward the full Phase 2 release, effectively increasing the team size in terms of bug reports , testing and MAYBE even acquiring new team mates that were previously unaware of ESF to help development. Option 2 would also give you a period of quietness where people will stop asking about it but depending on Phase 1 quality it might make people very winey instead...

At the same time Option 2 can go wrong and be regarded as an Open Beta. I think if bots would be included in Phase 1 and it would somehow be made more stable like without having crashes when Beam Struggling and such like Open Beta had then it could be a success. So I guess what I'm saying I think you guys should concentrate on eliminating bugs for the moment and then releasing a fairly stable version as Phase 1 and Phase 2 would just expand on the characters, maps, modes etc.

Half of the voters for the "phase" plan aren't registered... It really should be a "people who own Half-Life" only type of thing.

I could easily alter the poll to remove the registered users votes and only allow allow verified users.. Not sure if people will be happy about it though.

verify to vote, it's simple. If people don't like it they're obviously not HL1 owners

Verify for help. Voting in this poll doesnt go under help.

So unless our host has a direct problem with it, i dont see an issue.

Heck i myself would not be verified if i wasnt a dev team member ^^
