Well 7 page of this topic named "Construct 3 any news?", "What we do is discuss and compare engines because that is what this topic is about" is actually off topic.
People asked infos about C3, infos were released.
Why compare with other engines ?
It's OK to mention other engines in Scirra's forums, it always has been, but I really don't think this current topic is the best place for that, and I can't understand how you ended believing the current topic is being about that subject precisely.
Most of this topic is speculations from users and a few actual answers from Ashley which are mostly:
"You know nothing John Snow and we're not saying anything more for now."
I'm not sure what "comparing with other engines" unreleased and far from release as well really does.
Are you comparing the waiting period perhaps ? Not really you are comparing apparently marketing infos with speculations from users.
I still don't see the point or the justification of such posts.
