For the first couple of weeks, the road map was my blanket. When painful memories surfaced of past warhammer games I would hold that road map tight. Sometimes when I got scared I would even read it to reassure myself that things won't go all ec.
Obviously if the road map was no longer accurate or needed amendments that's all dandy. Just wanted to throw it out there though that it is sorely missed as it provided some much needed reassurance regarding the direction of the game as well as stuff to look forward to. In many ways I think it helped keep many testers motivated :)
Hope it comes back soon.
