Would have been better to just ignore the smithing and adding some more working perks, talking about the release of course .Coincidentally, that's also "the smithing guy" who no-lifed the last few days before EA launch to finish the first iteration of the system after announcing it wouldn't make it for initial EA. Did it feel rushed? Of course it did, it literally was. It's also not a critical feature of the game, so there are other priorities. The alternative was another empty hole where a promised/advertised feature should be, and of course there would have been complaints about that. It'll get another pass eventually.
In the meantime, calling for violence against anyone--even in jest--is a no-go on this forum. I hope you won't require another pass.
A totally broken smithing system doesn´t help much at all.
No offense though!
