I’m glad that the devs are enthusiastic about where the game is going, at least publicly. I love the game and very much want it to succeed, but it is hard to see reasons for optimism from here, especially when so much of how the game has been marketed up to this point seems…lacking (and I really don’t want to go off on that tangent).
I guess all we can really do is be patient. But I have the same concern I had before launch: this isn’t borderlands. A single player game can build notoriety and following over time. With multiplayer games, if they don’t hit a critical mass of players, that isn’t going to happen and we are seeing that.
Maybe they can find a way to make a big splash, draw in a bunch of new players and get some of the folks that have given up to come back. We shall see.
