Staff and testers advise Helios as to direction...but at the end of the day it's Helios' decision.
Thanks for a straight up answer. Soon MOH is going to be released anyway, so that should calm us down for a few months.
@OsamaBinAiming - I am sure HelioS have his ways of getting info directly from the game engine itself. Whether we will be seeing a hack for this game or not is another question. From all the staff's reply, seems like it's a no go. Can't blame them though.
