To summarize:
By July 31
Jon-Design and code victory conditions, diplomacy, siege combat, map editor (appears map editor is designed/coded from other posts)
Programmer-UI and Combat/Economic AI work
By September 30
Jon-Additional diplomacy work, Roman AI, Faction Traits, Combat AI
Programmer-Combat/Economic AI work, Difficulty levels
By November 30
Jon-Additional diplomact, faction traits/AI,
Programmer-Finish map editor, additional combat AI, UI, setup work
By January 31 (release)
Jon - Balance/pacing adjustments
Programmer- Steam achievements, finish UI work, modding

He basically estimates 2.5 man-months worth of work to be done each two month period... by two people. Only a third of which is fully dependent on him. I leave the realism of this schedule being achievable to the reader.

In a possibly related development, he also announced that he is going to be working on some interesting bill-paying endeavors with (presumably) a gaming development group. Hey, if it keeps him happy and focused on getting his development work finished each month... more power to him.

If you believe that, I have real estate in HELL I'd like to sell you.

He's only posted that to appease the VERY REAL AND VERY CERTAIN backlash at the recent announcement of his hiring at Paradox.

Jon, you've disappointed me for the last time. PLEASE FOR FUCK'S SAKE, ANSWER MY MANY EMAILS REQUESTING A REFUND.

lol good luck on a refund.  Jon was lying about that like everything else.   Why a reputable company like paradox would hire this loser is beyond me.  I give it 1 year before they throw him out
