I kinda phrased that poorly. It's not like the early release isn't finished. It's a finished product, but some of the problems may not have been fixed yet. i.e. Rome's To strap issue. Same with Union. Except that is more of an arrogance issue. Not a lack of feedback.
Im all for having fun, showing your tits and getting fucked up on a river float but it can be done without being a pig.
