I don't think that WGT even saw this coming.
I can confirm this to be true. The "surprise" that I have conveyed over this movement has been felt throughout the company and believe me, this is a GOOD surprise. We are all very proud of how the community has been interacting with each other, specifically the kindness and respect shown.
THAT is how we will foster a healthy community complete with an open line of communication and THAT is how this community will continue to mold this game according to their feedback.
And that, my friends, is something to be Merry about :)
