I agree, that however because of the promise made, it would be wise to comment if it can not be delivered upon. Its is an unwise decision to remain silent in this case because not having a letter, which was an accustomed thing,
Its not owed, but perhaps it would be wise if it was freely given to ease tensions. A discontinuity, makes the players think that perhaps the future of the game is unstable or it even has no future. Hence they dont invest time or money.
People don't just jump to conclusions, hell, they leap, they fly to them...and then some of them run around thereafter metaphorically like chicken little saying the sky is failing...it gos beyond even the issue of integrity, Its not very pragmatic from there end. Bat pr.
Maybe they feel however that forum goers are a minority faction, and it really wont effect them.I have been told this in regards to similar issues in other mmorpgs in the past when opinion was disregarded or no information was given...ie only a small fraction of players visit.. and so forth and so on.
I think even the owners don't know how seriously some players take gaming,
They know they log in for hours and hours, invest time and money but I don't really think they know where they live how seriously players take there games. Its not like another type of service. You cant be as casual.
Some companies seem to think, most players only check the patch notes or vist the service status page if the game is down. However in a mmo word gets around by the nature of the product and its community.
Commenting would be a curtsy and a smart move given the situation in my opinion.
Perhaps there are even on the fence about something. Its a big unknown. People fear the unknown, its human nature by and large...then there are comments from that fear, some masquerading as aggression resulting in accusatory posts.
However one cant say they owe anything, except services given for payment rendered.

As for the fictional character he created, whilst it's true that Sherlock Holmes was extremely logical, unlike what most people believe, he did not use deductive reasoning to solve crimes. What he actually used was abductive reasoning.
What's the greater fiction? The "producers letter" or pixies (and the Fae world in general)? The former obviously. I can't prove to you they exist, but when I was seven, my dad cut down the last old tree on our property ... as he was, two faeries showed up at my window, crying.
While opinions are important in a free society, they can also serve as a destructive force obscuring the truth of a thing (I am living proof ) - as the Zen master Hsin Ming said, "If you wish to see the truth then hold no opinions for or against anything." And the truth is, I simply don't care anymore if a "producers letter" is ever created, and that is disturbing.

I think its not so super important when the producer's letter pops up, but what it contains. We need a "big bang" at some point.
In retrospect going B2P - while certainly an option - was imo the wrong move for this xpac, that certainly is by no means a "frontloader" when it comes to core endgame content.
So yea, I hope that the producer's letter contains plans to get more momentum going for the endgame and also I hope that we see a F2P option for SFP.
