Correct me if I'm wrong, but...

WBP is just the template for testing things that Relic will take into account for the next patch that they release.

WBP isn't being implemented, it's just the test drive vehicle. Relic will/is building the actual next patch which will hit whenever they feel like it is done.

"Winter" was the time allotment for the community patch to be made and tested.

Kindly refrain from spreading misinformation on things you have absolutely no knowledge about. If you are unsure about the information you are posting, you should preamble things with "In my opinion, I think that...". That way, you don't give people the wrong impression that you have reliable sources about what you are talking about.

Relic is actually directly applying the files of the WBP to the game, and we're in the process of testing the beta build of the game. Once beta-testing is complete, the patch will be released.

Since the internal thing that Relic uses to apply changes to the game differs somewhat from the attribute editor, all changes need to be thoroughly double-checked.

Moreover, due to a combination of Relic not working on weekends and the terrible track record of Steam at delivering updates reliably, the WBP will have to be released at some point early during the week. That way, if we get Stuart bug v2.0, we will be able to respond to it and fix it.

The community has to choose between one of the following:
- Getting the WBP now (with potential untested game-breaking bugs)
- Letting us do our job testing the patch, and then, release it when it's ready

And then like in those terrible horror movie sequels, the Combined Arms stacking bug returns to terrorize automatch, AGAIN!

It is coming. The goal is to prevent bug release. I know we are all inpatient to see it applied, but we have to wait just a little longer. Indeed it may fall outside "winter" technically, but the tests were all run in the winter.

We are not dealing with a studio devoting 100% of its resources to the game, we are working on an older game with the studio well underway for its next major release.

Please remember the 100 man Rear-Echelon squads we got the last time Relic rushed a release.

If I can see snow outside, it is still winter.

Expectations:

"Look, it's gonna takes us longer than expected. We are trying to deliver a solid patch but it's taking us more time than we would had like. I'm sorry for the frustration which is understandable...blabla :insert more PR words:

Reality:




I'm sorry for Mr Smith that he is slowly been assuming the role of "community patch manager".
