Yep, it is confusing. Just as the things Verxion has been saying sounds terrific, yet none of the rest of it knows what it might be about! We do know him though. Including the fact that he was being rather critical of WayTools before that call. So if he has changed his attitude, that means something.
I tried to explain the seemingly contradictory statements by using passenger airlines as an example - that even if that came many years later, ic would still be "worth the wait". I think that may well apply to everyone who, if it had shipped when originally expected (but without the bugs), would have been happy with it. Of course, no doubt there will be some who get it, don't instantly adapt to it, and give up so I'm not counting them. They will always exist no matter how good it is. The only other exceptions would be those who are just so mad that they refuse to ever use it even when it is available, but that would not be because of the TB not being worth it!
I think that leaves us with the question really being, "Is it worth letting WT keep our money this long" and risking whether they go out of business (which would likely mean you wouldn't get your money back). And that risk is a trade off with - if you cancel until it ships, you are back on a longer waiting list and you lose the free benefits (like multi map) and the gift (which you don't know what it is and not even Treggers know how it changes depending on how late you order). For example, I ordered March 9, 2015. Will that get the top gift? I don't know.
As for "making excuses", no, that isn't even close. We do pass on what we have learned, which includes a decent amount of understanding of how hard this is. I've given a lot of details. I've also pointed out what I do NOT know. For example, I know some of the problems testers have reported. I do not know how widespread they are. Nor if they are something that WT is having trouble solving. I certainly know of many things they have solved, but they don't tell us everything and there are only a portion of Treg testers even on Slack so we sure don't know where experiences.
