  21. I think what this schedule misses is how End of June to End of September is about 3 months. Here's how long the past CAPs have taken (excluding CAP25, which was longer for obvious reasons):
  22.  
  23.  
  24.  
  25. CAP26: Feburary 2, 2018 - Mid June, about 4 and a half months​​​​
  26.  
  27. CAP24: January 30, 2018 - May 17, 2018, a little less than 5 months
  28.  
  29. CAP23: July 18, 2017 - November 27, 2018, just over 4 months
  30.  
  31. CAP22: June 10, 2016 - October 26, 2018, just over 4 months​
  32.  
  33.  
  34.  
  35. So, what I'm seeing here is that we finish CAPs generally around 4 and a half months. Again, you're proposing 3 months, effectively calling for the process to chop a third of the time somewhere. Could you elaborate on where that time comes from, because that's a rather large chunk of time. Sure, if we have a deadline we could "rush" things, but I'd be interested in knowing what exactly we rush - which threads do we chop off time for? - do we set deadlines for those threads? Or, do we have to eat into playtesting time? If so, how much? If we're going to fit in another CAP into the year, I want to know what our time budget is.
