This feedback is a general consensus of a conversation in the veteran's chat room.
We all understand how important accuracy is in our game client, and applaud dev efforts to bring us a better client.
Right now, though, NC is simply not ready for prime time. The update just posted to devprev was very anticipated as we all hoped that it would solve one of the biggest bugs, rebuild. Unfortunately it has actually made rebuild worse, if anything (http://fold.it/portal/node/996667).
The community has tried very hard this past week to make this work… but there are too many major bugs and hurdles. Some players are bouncing in & out waiting for a playable client. Some have rage quit. Most have done their best by playing, trying to adapt scripts, trying to find ways to make the software do what it used to do easily.
However - most feel that the fun is completely gone. The new game is barely playable, and not at all enjoyable for many.
There was a proposal in this conversation that the following be done:
Roll back the Main client.
Keep NC in it's own update group until all the major bugs are gone (that would include the script hooks for the wiggle levels, and anything else missing for scripts to be able to work again).
Allow us to use both clients until we can tell you that NC is both playable and enjoyable. This would also allow devs to see if the new accuracy really will work well.
