In this particular case,the development of the patch is coming along nicely,and I can confirm that we are expecting to release it before the end of this month (dec).
The patch,if everything goes as expected,is including the chat functionality,some minor balancing tweaks and a brand new feature that we haven't announced yet,and I hope that you guys will like it,for it has been requested for a lot of times on the forums.
[Перевод: Я надеюсь, что вам это понравится, т.к. на эту тему было очень много просьб на форумах]
At the moment the clan support is still in development,and we don't have any further detail that we can unveil,other than assure you that we are conscious of it's importance and,that,as for chat channels,we prefere to wait in order to offer a feature that won't let down anyone.
