Indeed Lane. The problem would then be all the OTHER things that didn't ship with the game and someone else would say "they should have waited 1 extra year before releasing the game".
I am enjoying the game I bought, so why would I want to have waited til September 2013 to have had all the enjoyable moments so far? That just seems silly to me.

And remember, you aren't paying a sub every month until they fix your pet issue, so you aren't losing anything if you don't fancy playing until they get round to addressing it
