you hit the nail on the head in answering your own question in your response to my post, as did raven roth's. the reason they're leaving "us" in the dark is because for the most part we're unreliable not to mention any time anything goes off schedule when they announce it everybody riots like with the legends skins fiasco a few years ago. if and/or when they do initiate a PVP update they'll likely take a concensus through a poll as to how to go about it to avoid last times mistake. it's not hard to see why the devs don't exactly have a lot of "trust" with the community on PVP given whats happened last time. but like i said, they're working on weapons and stuff and have an improved bug tracking thread now to more effectively register and work on glitches and errors, they're just slowly getting to PVP/other technical issues. as the saying goes "patience is a virtue, all good things to those who wait.".
