Time for some to eat crow

It's been pretty obvious from the marketing and news pace that the game would be delayed to 2022. Yet all I heard was "there's nothing hinting at a delay" Eat crow.

    Yeah..

    Nothing "hinting" at a delay was clearly ballsack, especially as we entered the second week of September with not much sign of the pace quickening.

    No "evidence" of delay, they may have been on surer grounds saying. But there was a reasonable case for suspecting a delay at least two months back.

    The biggest hint about the delay was today's announcement that there would be a delay.

    The radio silence for the past couple months was announced as a planned silence until marketing resumes with Cathay in September, which apparently continues to be the case.

    Also, there were threads about people suspecting delays pretty regularly, but the opposite was also true.

    Speaking as someone who thought there'd be a delay, do you need a ladder to get off your high horse? You look no better doing this than someone else obstinately telling you there won't be a delay.

    Now I’m just as upset about the delay as everyone else but when you get mass disagreed after speaking the truth I think you have every right to gloat. It is a message board where the point is to discuss and quite often disagree on things. It was the same thing with Monogods, Cathay and the content deniers. People couldn’t read the writing on the wall and mass downvoted what was common sense

    Honestly i did not see this delay coming, but what i found worst was the known CA whiteknights on these forum absolutely demolishing anyone who deigned to mention the mere possibility of a Total War Warhammer 3 delay, those obnoxious entities should really put a sock in it sometimes, like they went for the throat whenever people just mentioned it as a possibility, it was barf inducing really.

    Hmmm crow, omnomnom. >:)

    Fun aside, I'm glad I never pre-ordered or bought in to the hype. The crushing disappointment of the chopped down Mortal Empires map which has tormented my map ocd and been the cause of countless dwarf genocides was enough for me. >:)

    Yeah, I was right too; took ages for the devs to bother updating us when they probably knew this for a while...Kinda lazy really.

    In my opinion one should receive these happenings with a bit of grace rather than stoop to others level, but that may be expecting too much to be fair.

    Could have been done if 1) They didn't added a pre-order one year + in advance and 2) they were transparent from the beginning. The only reason they are announcing Cathay this week+ other stuff is so that the Warhammer crowd does not riot. Don't expect a ''huge amount of news'' for the future or a weekly communication diary.

    Completely irrelevant to any point I was making.

    I'm talking about one's behavior when being correct and choosing to make a post about being right.

    Also I don't disagree with any of your points regardless of their revelance to my comments.

    Time for you to take a break from the forum.

    It's an internet forum. No one cares if you were right or wrong. We're just a bunch of people chatting about a game. If you genuinely feel the need to get upset because you were right in the past and people disagreed then you should take a break from the forum.

    In this case I was right. It doesn't matter.

    My biggest eye roll was towards the people having the same “all is doom” tune since the second week after the announcement in February. Can't blame people for keeping those eye rolls for the same people. Also, the reasons many people were pointing to stemmed from hyperbole. So again can't blame people for eye rolling.

    Crazy person: my mail didn't come at regular time- that means a storm will come later tonight.

    Everyone else: 🙄
    Storm comes later that night...

    Crazy person: 📣🏆🏆🏆🏅

    Also, is there a roster list for forum white knights? Curious if I'm on it?!?

    Oh yeah there's doom and gloom people alright, but that don't change the fact that even when regular people brought forth coherent possibilities of a delay in the release schedule some white knight went balls deep from the get go with stuff like "stop your pathetic fear mongering, there's no evidence of any delay shush it you loonie"

    Those are the pwople who should just stfu and stop being jerks

    Not sure if you are on such a list, do you wanna be?

    There was no proof of a delay, you were just guessing, lol.
    Almost everyone on the forum said if there is than that’s ok anyway.

    I remember it well. The persecution was the greatest tragedy in forum history. The victims bodies were strewn across the interwebz like so much wreckage.

    My new crazy idea which will be proven by confirmation bias is Kislev complainers caused the delay as ca panicked and redesigned ice and bears and stuff.
