The staff team is currently being re-structured. Staff who were interested in the server are now no longer interested, so we need to find people who want to work for us, this includes Devs and mods. Before development goes any further we will need to hire a few coders, which we are currently in the process of doing. (Coders being PHP and C++). If you are interested in applying see this thread here.
We do not have a time when the official version will be ready, and we do realise everyone is becoming impatient, to be honest we don't blame you. Nothing has gone as smoothly as we planned, but these things happen. Rest assured we are doing everything in our power to get the right staff hired and the work done. Hang tight, we will get there eventually.
