Yup, but I think that’s where the risk vs reward comes in I don’t think we’d launch something that wasn’t up to standard so the main “risk” is we’d have put a huge amount of effort in to get something across the line and missed the boat anyway.
What I mean more rather than “below par” I mean something that would just squeak through the criteria and be a MMVP ( most minimal viable product).
