It looks like the Siege Warfare Otter Catapult we have all been waiting for...
Lets face it we all know a guild mate that would use a catapult like this if they could

Their hesitance to show us any of the flaws of the MMO, but their willingness to expose people to the APOC product in its unfinished state, and then taking away that product for a fix for the MMO shows their priorities. So that's nice....but...it also shows their willingness to give players an incomplete experience to cash in on a popular trend, that they were too late to capitalize on. So it sorta shows a schism in their thinking. When planning is going on thats supposed to be pretty far flung thinking, to see this scramble to get another product out, is kind of a terrible red flag for signs of health.
Critically thought out and deep insight is what we need from Steven and his vision. I feel that a desire for there to be less of a sunk cost for testing, is just kind of a pipe dream. The costs of doing APOC poorly will reflect on the marketing for the MMO, which when you think about it, is what all this radio silence is supposed to achieve. However word of mouth is the power they're hoping to utilize here and yet its the biggest risk they're taking by exposing people to APOC and then cutting access to APOC abruptly, is very disruptive to the players they'd hope to gain and this is a pretty niche genre with a tight community of media. Doing stuff like this again is really not a good idea.
