    ^lol.
    You won't be sorry, I have had windows for a while now and I must say I was very biased before, I'm actually quite pleased with the performance. It's not as bad as they say it is after you have it set up to your preferences, although when you first get it is very annoying to get used to, but you will. And another thing, the first thing to do when you're a mac user who just got windows:
    1. Change the themes in windows to look shiny.
    2. Get Firefox and make it look like Safari. :smug:
    Remember 1 thing: If you don't F* it up everything will be alright. :)

    why is BtS taking so long?! why hasnt the patch even come close to comming!?!?! why isnt aspyr hurrying the hell up like they should! oh god i cant stand it. i mean, its bad enough that we dont have the patch (i cant play an effing game with the rainbow glitch lurking around, OR play an online game with internet connection like anyone else would) but i mean WE HAVENT EVEN HEARD about them making BtS!!

    why do we get ignored in this sense?

    We're not getting ignored. You can be quite confident that there are (good) reasons for it, whether they be technical, legal, or otherwise. Aspyr knows full well which side their bread is buttered on (i.e. making customers happy).

    It's tough to look at the BOTM spoilers--BtS sounds pretty cool. I guess I'll stick with the vanilla GOTM for now.

    It is the monthly version of CFC's Game Of The Month - GOTM - with the BtS expansion.

    If some of the problems are legal they might well not be allowed to.

    Well, they don't advertise why there is a delay, but they might let you know if you contact them. I did so, through their support site, and they replied that MP bugs were the issue.

    Edit: My reply is in regard to the Warlords patch.

    I saw you post that with respect to the release of the Warlords 2.13 patch. Are you saying they've also given this reply for a BtS release? If so, it's the first firm statement I've heard from Aspyr that BtS is even in the pipeline.

    Oops. Nope, I erroneously replied to what in my mind was a statement about the Warlords patch. I'll edit it.

    The fact that its been 6+ months and not a word from Aspyr.

    Is there any proof that there will be?

    Does anyone remember the time span between the Windows and Mac version of Warlords?

    No proof that there will be is NOT proof that there will not be.
