An RNG-based gear leveling system is the endgame to AGS. AGS is willing to make major game changes around said endgame. If you don’t like this vision of the future exit now. If you love it, stay as there will be plenty more updates to improve their RNG-based end game grind.
My suggestion to AGS is to make the story & combat better with the addition of some quality of life changes (like your own in-game mini-map that fits your vision) as you’ll be able to retain some of the folks not into the RNG watermark system grind.
