Word From EA on Stats, Worldbuilder

In contrast to the stated claims of 'early April' as the release date for C&C 3's Worldbuilder, Amer Ajami, a Producer for C&C 3, stated today that "
Worldbuilder is coming this month. We're almost there.
Even though this is a bit of a delay, it's still good to see that they are making progress. We still haven't heard word on the modding Software Development Kit, yet, though.

Amer went on to discuss the latency in statistic updating for C&C 3:
We fully recognize and acknowledge that there is an issue with stats not getting updated. Right now we are seeing a 2-3 day delay on stats processing to your profile and the website. There is a server and processor issue that we are working extremely hard on to fix. We are already making improvements and are on track to fully resolve the issue so that your stats are updated consistently and efficiently with little delay. Certainly, this current issue is not ideal, but I can assure you it has been our top priority to fix.

All of your stats should still be there, but again, the main problem is there is a significant delay on when they get updated. We will absolutely have this fixed, please do not think anything otherwise.

I'd also like to mention that we have not started any contests or ladder seasons/tournaments because of this issue and will not do so until this is resolved completely. So, to a certain degree, you are not missing out on anything from a stats perspective aside from personal pride, but believe me, we fully understand how important that is.

I simply wanted to update you, acknowledge and explain the issue, and let you know once again that we will get this fixed, your stats are still there, there is a just a bottle-necking issue preventing them from updating quickly. It is getting fixed and I will keep you informed on the progress.

Thanks again for your patience and understanding.
That is also good to hear. Progress is being made, even if it's going slowly.
