Here's the official "open letter" : http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=409828

A quote from there :

There’s a lot more to talk about, and my heart races as I am selectively sharing just hints of what we already have in development!
This "my heart races" would be thought to be "silly" in German communications. No-one uses formulations like that, only entertainers. In German language, press releases and even open letters don't sound that theatralic at all.
Any theatralic language is of of entertainment or of literature/theatre/drama, not of serious business here.

Using "I'm excited" instead would still have sounded a bit "silly" in German readers ears, but still not that silly.

Emotions are in Germany not at all parts of business communication.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
