While digging up those quotes I stumbled on some more hilarious apologism from the fanboys on the SCL forum. That place is comedy gold.

There have been so many vague promises of improvements to come that there were a number of requests for a "post release roadmap" to clarify what would actually be worked on. Unsurprisingly, it hasn't arrived yet so:
Technically closer to launch could mean slightly after it too...
Close simply means in "the ballpark of". Before, after, to the side, adjacent, near...


It indicates that it MAY be before launch, not that it will. Just an FYI.
yep, this shit is pure gold...

close to means "sometimes after the launch" and will be means "might be", according to these buffoons...

Meanwhile, PoE's next patch is going to introduce dozens of hard counters and immunities into the game. Could PoE yet turn out to be the D&D cRPG we always wanted?

I would say a Bubbles review would only be fitting, hes the primary responsible of SCL sales on the codex and im sure hell give it a fair treatment.

Patch Notes: Scl Launch

Here are a list of changes and additions to Sword Coast Legends since the end of Head Start Four. Tomorrow at 12:01 am dungeon masters will gain access to 35 new interior locations as well as nine over-world tiles of various sizes. It was decided to make these locations unavailable during Head Start Five to prevent players from spoiling elements of the Sword Coast Legends campaign.

Features:

A number of new locations should now be available for dungeon masters to use during module/campaign construction.

o Human City (L)

o With 17 interiors (including the tavern)

o City Slums(L)

o With 5 interiors

o Duergar City (L)

o With 8 interiors

o Duergar City (M)

o With 5 interiors

o Forest Road (L)

o Underdark Island (L)

o Duergar Tower (S)

o With 2 interiors

o Heroes' Respite (S)

• Companions from the primary SCL story may now be added in other modes once they join your party. For example, once Jarhild joins you on your quest she will be available for use in player made modules/ Dungeon Crawls as a companion. Should a character leave your party in the story, they will still be accessible in other non-story modes.
• Added the Design Council armor: Crystal Aegis to Story mode (will have to be found)
• Added the Design Council weapon: Vlaakith, the Slayer of Minds to Story mode (will have to be found)
• Added ability to edit your own modules that you downloaded, so people can share their non-editable modules and get them back after the wipe

Improvements:

• Fix for Mac and Linux boot sequence
• Graphics quality settings are now dynamically determined so you no longer begin at highest settings by default based upon the Windows Experience D3D results. Mac and Linux default to Medium settings
• Dwarf and Halfling crossbow animations improvements
• Can now have more than one page of downloaded modules

Bugs Fixed:

• Fixed the crash occurring when you select the Dwarven skull in the Evermoors
• Invite button in Story is functional again
• The Axe of Dwarven Lords should now increase constitution appropriately
• Fix for client getting black screen and no character if connecting to a lobby just after the host has started a level load.
• The client should now maintain his campaign data if finishing up the another person's game
• Intoxication can now be cured with a restoration spell or potion
• Issues with the wolf animation have been rectified and wolves should no longer “mutate” (sorry mutant wolf fans!)
• After leaving the Cutlass Inn, players should no longer experience issues with the camera
• Summoned support should now have appropriate/visible ground rings
• Mysterious floating toupees should no longer appear to players
• An issue preventing players from picking up deathcap mushrooms has been rectified. (do not eat)
• Trap difficulty should no longer get stuck while being altered by a DM
• Fixed Ranger Companion skinning
• Fixed the issue where selecting a character via the popup list would disable menu bar input
• In 4-player co-op we fixed numerous conversation issues that were potentially blocking
• Fixed soft-lock when interacting with Maferil’s sarcophagus
• Fixed animation issue when equipping a crossbow and then another weapon causing weapons to become misaligned to body
• Fixed animation issues with how two-handed mauls were being held
• Fixed bug where Bryn would not become a companion and was just becoming a follower
• Fixed sort by type in inventory
• “The Porters” sidequest now has a quest journal entry
• Fixed issues with Armor Proficiency not allowing you to equip some gear or reequip that gear
• Fixed navigation around chests in Duergar Stronghold
• Removed graphical corruption on mini-map in bandit caves
• Custom oozes now attack when you place them
• Fixed a number of errant screen issues showing up around buttons and logos for Mac and Linux
