Isn't it fun this is the first game?" to get the buzz going. I think they're going to get very serious in the next half week to make an attempt to save it
Not happening. Only because it will take more than a week to iron this out. it's gonna take at least a few weeks if this gains traction, enough for a late november/December 1st start. Which IMO is not worth saving the WC for, I want 24/7 and that's not enough time for it.
