Sorry, but given that it wasn't even worked out, the time and effect spent on Flex is in no comparision with the time and effort spent on working out and ratifying the Tri, electing officials and starting governmental business. And the most important thing: The time and effort spent on Flex are not going to be wasted in any way. We will be merging out CoL to Flex, that is almost certain. And seriously, please stop repeating the "Feb. 1" myth - yes, that's what it is. I can't even remember how often I've debunked the totally unfounded claim that the game will "have to wait till Feb. 1 anyway". Repeating it any time you can doesn't make it true.
