There is also one more X factor to consider, there is a chance we might get additional funding to GREATLY upgrade all the game art and visuals, if this does happen that would delay release by another 2 months, but doesn`t effect the beta.
Competition is definitely a factor as well - but the main game to watch out is Starcraft 2.
Yay to the first paragraph =P, for second i hope you will do it cuz i very like nice visuals and for last paragraph... in my eyes there is, was and will be in near future non good enough competitor for DoF =).
