The bad thing is beta bugs are released to live servers. Users reported the message center was broken. It was not fixed, but a new version was released. Why is this being done?

So why not publish the chateau when there has been no major change since its "test" on the DE server?

I read through the German forums. For the most part they say the same as we have did here. Inno did not find vindication. It does not rise to the level of a positive stand alone addition to the game at this time. Much was/is ill thought out. My worry is it now goes to the same people that did the PvP arena fixes. That released the new settlement. Both reviled by most of the players...

I thought the majority of the feedback here on the Castle was neutral to positive and that some people were looking forward to it in the game? That that's why people keep asking "when do we get it?" as opposed to PvP Arena where the questions were more of "who wants this?"

I will stand by my post. Inno obviously agrees...
Yes almost all posts were as neutral but with the same lackluster tone posted here. In a game really in need of something people will like the Castle is Meh... Something that should be a portion of an improvement to the game... As I said not a stand alone item

doesn't matter how Meh it is, it is free stuff ... the way inno goes nowadays, Meh is the best you can hope for; Meh is the new great and lackluster the new exciting... rest they do is to kill the fun and encourage cheaters

I'm not sure it's obvious they agree at all - they haven't said much of anything to us about how they're feeling about it. And I seriously doubt it was meant to "be what the game needs" so much as "complement what the game is".

It's not abnormal for a completely new feature (as opposed to new content for existing features such as a new settlement) to go through a multimonth rollout even if people are excited for it (see GBG).

Currently we sadly don't have a release date when the castle system will be introduced to all Live markets.
Let me tell you what is sad...

As an active player of another market it is sad to feel mistreated (improving messages was another glaring example). For me, anything that improves defence and attack, doesn't cost anything, doesn't eat space is a good thing – and it should have been implemented everywhere.

I just leveled my castle. It did not give me the hideout that new level showed I should get. It seems that unless you click on all the rewards they do not get dropped in your inventory... Sounds like a bug as many players feel it is condescending to require unnecessary clicks to get a reward. Reloading the game is preferable to watching a "hey you won a reward" reward. We can read and knew we would get that reward. It should not require we jump through hoops...
