So, you release a beta that you haven't even tested to the public?
That's an even better idea than giving etas each time you see a bit of progress in the mod...
Well given the fact that its almost an entirely NEW team working on source material that was handed to them in rough condition.. with input and guidance from one of the previous devs, they really don't have much time to test themselves.
Unless of course, you want the mod to never surface. Putting it in Beta and having people test it/report on it can be much more helpful and insightful than trying to go it alone. And it can possibly help them finding solutions of what exactly is the problem. Like if several people are crashing at every single dimension portal, they know something with dimension generation is askew. It just makes more sense.
Your cynicism is neither warranted nor desired. Off with you.
