I think when he was referring to leakers being caught im assuming he meant the ones who posted the sceenshots without covering the combat bit of the Ui...none of those have been in contact with me.
Update on January 11
This is our latest beta update:
We needed to collect more data from the current build before putting together the newest patches, so we let the latest stable build run until then.
We've been listening to your feedback closely since the beta started. Much of what you are reporting as far as bugs go are known issues through our internal testing process and have been scheduled to be updated, or have been updated already. If you don't see immediate fixes, it's because we need the extra error logs to be able to get to the root of each problem faster. Anything that you report which we weren't aware of we need time to reproduce it internally and still collect more data on it. Our communication is mostly one sided, from you to us, not just by necessity having limited manpower, but also by design. We need as much feedback as possible.
In the next couple of patches you should be able to observe our commitment though beta progress. Most fixes and updates will be present. Having said that, there's no such thing as a "magic patch". You should know however that the beta builds are much different that a release build. Beta builds are focused on testing needs rather than on the total player experience.
While the feedback we're getting has been overwhelmingly positive, the criticism has been very vocal. We've been paying close attention to everything you're reporting and we look over it dedicating our limited time to it. Most of you respect and make good use of this. This is where you have the opportunity to cooperate with the Darkfall developers. But Darkfall isn't for everyone, we understand that there will be people who won't enjoy the game. There is no point in keeping those in the beta who hinder cooperation by their conduct on the beta forums. We will ask you again to please provide on-point constructive criticism but to also definitely refrain from ranting and inflamatory posting.
For those of you who wish continue to provide us with valuable feedback through the next couple of patches, we'll provide you with detailed testing guidelines which we would appreciate help with.

Of course we know that we're behind schedule, mostly due to limited resources in running the testing, and having to also focus on peripheral issues like account management and billing systems etc. We don't intend to rush things more than they can be rushed. We haven't done this so far, and we're not about to start now. We'll ask you to trust us to always do what's best for the game. On the other hand we're very happy with the results of the testing so far. We're collecting a lot of valuable information and have made numerous improvements to the game.
The newest testers ready to be let in have been put on hold while we address as many issues as possible before the imminent patch. We have been working around the clock seven days a week and we're doing everything we can, so the quality of cooperation with you the testers is very important. We'll keep up our end to the best of our ability.
We have discovered a couple of people responsible for the latest leaks. Predictably they were people given the benefit of the doubt when let in, and vouched for by other people who we trust. We intend to enforce our NDA in these cases and protect our testing process. We must ask you again to respect it as well, as most of you have so far.
We'll try to keep you updated with any developments.
