For all those asking for an ETA, 1.7.10 mods are getting there (more stable), however FTB have pretty damn high standards when it comes to crashes and world exploding bugs. After all its what's making you wait right now for FTB mod packs.

If it's broken (like a lot of mods still are) then FTB will delay and not release until said mod bugs are fixed. Up to 1.7.10 that has been a pretty smooth concept of break and fix, with the vanilla issues with 1.7.10 there's a whole new complexity to mod packs.

So here's your ETA .... soon but not next week.

Incorrect, 'soon but not next week' means that there are infinity minus one week possible weeks that the modpacks could be released, and infinity minus any real number is equal to infinity.

Note that this statement assumes that the future of the world is infinite.

However with rumor suggesting that Microsoft may purchase Mojang for $2billion and a lot of people suggesting that the world will end when it happens, this means that the world will not be infinite.

Instead the world's future will be finite, however the finite quantity of time remains unknown, even though it's known to be finite, although an unknown finite quantity is unknown because there are infinite finite quantities since time is continuous.

So what's the point I'm trying to make here?

I'm bored.
