It may not be obvious where the issue(s) lie at this point. I do know that when I was a part of disaster planning, the internal deliberations were not made public. When a disaster strikes, you're too busy dealing with it, so items of lesser importance get put on the to-do list to be done later. We simply don't know and maybe there is nothing at Turbine's end worth mentioning at this point.

On planet Earth, there is a try.
Indeed, in a world and life full of change, the only constant is human nature (A is A, after all :P).
