It is basically a new game. I highly doubt it is possible, and even if, I would not recommend not. Just treat it as a different game rather than an update.

I'm still waiting patiently for this to come out. Been waiting for 2 years maybe, I hope it doesn't get scrapped or abandoned

If you join the Discord channel, it's easier to keep up with progress: https://gitlab.com/whist/MXLS/milestones/1

It's at 84% completion right now, subject to change probably.

There will probably a testing phase where you can apply to. But that usually requires you to be able to complete at least 80% of the content. At least it was that way in the last Beta Phase.

Then i think it will be out VERY soon b/c all "bugs" left are some gui changes and they will not contain 20 % of the game.

I don't think 'everything' can be found out about the game. Of course they will list bugs and gui changes that need to be done but they will not list content as that has to remain a secret until the release ;)

So you can never know if 80% is done, only assume.

i'm not so sure about the last part. The point of a burndown chart ( something used in SCRUM) is kinda lost if you dont list all tasks and track them accordingly :)

Looks like all the tasks are assigned to whist. Can no-one else help?

Could you possibly release a Diablo 2 patch with Sigma's changes to the UI, bug fixes, etc. but without altering much of the vanilla gameplay?
