    Thanks for the newsletter.

    "This is fine" I like .. and on the origami, there's a little guy!

    Is amazing.

    Have a top weekend.

    40%...Massive?...LOL. 80%+ is 'massive', 40% is more like moderate. Still probably going to buy something though, which anaconda paintjobs look the best?

    Kinda angry about the lack of love for the imperial ships.

    No kits, and the skins are just cheap recolors.

    It's a bit of a stretch to start the newsletter saying "2.3 Beta is in full swing" when you don't have one of the main features of 2.3 working yet. A bit more honesty would have been better in my opinion.
    When you need me, but do not want me, I must stay ... When you want me, but do not need me, I must go.

    Does Mission failed immediately after accepting issue fixed on the 2.3?
    Or 2.3 will be launched independently if this issue fixed?
    I'd prefer this issue reolved rather than Vanity Camera!

    Hrm, no discount for Xbox.
