A) we are testing changes to the main code in beta, not EOF, which was worked over a month ago by Paradox testing.
B) lol don't sweat the cheap shots, merely golf clap them cause, ya know, how lonely do you have to be to go out into the internet in hopes of being amusing...for free. The rest of us have real life friends for that sorta thing :P
