Well, 3.0 was originally scheduled for Q4 of 2022.
I might be wrong, but I never read on official GF website that this ETA for 3.0 was available for EU/NA.
Afaik , this Q4/2022 , or 3rd of nov. was a post on Discord, from a regular user and not from any official / coma / mod / etc from GF .
Therefore, many players, including myself , expected the 3rd of nov as salvation day in form of 3.0 .
What is annoying tho is that GF never bothered to come upfront and make an official statement (or maybe they they and I didnt read it) in which they clearly and without any doubt or foreseeable w/e state : 3rd of november WILL NOT bring 3.0 on EU/NA. That date is for MY/CN server !!!
As simple as that. But they didnt and so many SOLO-ers were left in believing that 3rd nov. will also bring 3.0 in EU/NA.
Further more, all this time, between big dissapoopment of 3rd nov coming and go without any 3.0 for Eu/NA and present day , GF nourished the same uncertainty about future road for SOLO but did what they know best : CC discounts, old fashion discounts, endless BP season (what was even the reason for not resetting BP previous season and start a new one , for those who were still actively playing ? ).
As I mentioned before, me myself (and I ) would've invested some and take advantage of every CC discount , stash them CC for (hypothetical) new character/class - archer - but as there was no guaranteed future for SOLO, I ... I ..just didnt and surely, never will .
