- Over on the Champions Online forums, executive producer Shannon Posniewski announced that they are holding back the update for pet-based powers because they are not happy with how it is going so far. In his own words:
So, rather than push something that you and we aren't particularly happy with, we've decided to wait. Without a deadline looming, we can go back and take another look at the problem and possibly come up with another approach to it.
- That means that the pet powers will remain as they are on the live server, though still receiving the UI updates. But the bulk of the power pass will be held over until the Demonflame adventure pack launches.
- It would be easy to complain that Cryptic is not following through on a promise, but I think that would be shortsighted. Even the forum community agrees (and when does that ever happen) that postponing the pet pass is better than holding the Summer Update hostage until pets work or pushing an update that no one is happy with. Cryptic has my support for making a brave decision. I'd rather they do it right eventually than wrong now and fix it later.
