I'm harping on a theme - but I've just seen a Blizzard post coy on epic gems in 4.3 here .
My theory has been that the purpose of Epic gems is to nerf older content. There is a possibility that a very slow release of Epic gems may be used to gate access to deeper 4.3 raid content. Note: Having JC's with thousands of tokens, stockpiled pyrite ore, capped Justice/Valor/Honor points ready to pounce does not count as a slow release.
Player 1 : If they don't release epic gems in 4.3 i will be mad
Player 2 : Protip: they won't. Sometime mid 4.3, maybe, as an indirect nerf to the content. But not at the start.
Player 1 : i mad
Blizzard : A more useful reply would contain details of why, in your opinion, epic gems should be added sooner, how it would benefit the game as a whole, the knock-on effect to progression, something like that. You being mad wouldn't be a solid reason I can pass on to the devs :(
As JC's we are salivating at the possibility of gemmas (myself included). My advice is to be rational instead of emotional. Just because you want it, does not mean you get it.
Weekend minipost: equal numbers but superior ships - X-7OMU saw a battle between exactly the same amount of Imperium and MoA, but the Imperium used vastly superior ships to the mere T1 destroyers flown by MoA...
