I mean lets be honest, the amount of work it takes to move the massive ship that is an mmo takes time. There isn’t any need to update us ever 3 days. The know what the problems are and they’re working on it. These things take time. Monthly updates are pretty good for an mmo.
I kinda wish they spaced it better as well. It recently has been silence… 6 weeks later. Dev blog/update. Silence.
Even if it was spacing it better. The last Dev video was kinda disappointing and the luck explanation really showed they were in part out of touch with us, I think that adds to it.
I really miss when they explained their rationale for changes. When they released regular Dev Blogs in written form. Etc.
I am looking forward to this roadmap though! I just hope it’s not at the end of the month after a month of silence again.
Which I’m not being entirely fair when I say silence ( plenty of responses on the forums, but most are not giving any additional information and telling us to wait for the announcements) but most communication during that time was just released PTR updates. It was more one sided and less if a dialog with the players.
The lack of transparency with the dev team is beyond terrible. I don’t understand how the devs of a game with the most amount of lost players in a 6 month time frame can justify not addressing the remaining community on exactly what their plan is going forward. We need to know you are hearing us about the combat issues. We need to know what you are prioritizing as fixes. We need to understand that this game DOES have a potential future, because it looks terrible right now. Your remaining few players WILL quit playing if there is no transparency that their issues are being worked on. That means more than someone posting on the forum they are having an issue and you replying “we’ll look into it”. That’s the laziest response possible and we have earned more than that by continuing to support this project. Without your community, you don’t have a game. Show us a bit of respect and be more transparent.
Almost the end of Q1, there doesn’t seem to be any new games, updates, or DLC on the horizon, too. Perhaps they are hedging their bets or is it just a lack of attention to detail? We shall soon find out…
