No, slow didn't code anything. That is the only truth to your statement. If slow was ditching us just to make a quick buck, none of us would be here. FTB staff has known about this from (almost) the beginning. Slow talked to each of us because it affects us all. If any of us thought the worse of this, NONE of us would still be here. We would have walked quicker than what. I am for anything that will allow me to bring a better product to the community, and have been working towards this end with jaded and myself starting a testing team. This is just another step to attempt to make things better for all. So what if it fails? Oh no, too bad, so sad. At least we gave it a shot and will still have they ability to move down a different path if it fails. It takes SOMEONE to try it to see. Technic did it with its first modpacks, got backlash, revived and improved and is now outstanding. They did it to offer a service to the community. FTB is doing the same with this venture, and if it blows up, we walk away and rebuild.
