@MarksmanMax true, but working on 2 different patches at a time is a logistical nightmare. So the team would likely work on 1 patch at a time.
Now, I think that we're long overdue for some new content, and that's likely what the team is working on, hence the long gap of over a month.
Though I do hope the new patch comes soon, since the game is in desperate need of fresh content.
I'm really anticipating some sort of theater file for us to make modifications to the Community Servers. It would address a lot of ongoing criticism across the message boards and breathe new life into the game while we wait for everything else.
Insurgency Source's theater file allowed us to change recoil values, bullet damage, coop and AI item loadout, molotov damage values (to address Intercontinental Ballistic Molotovs, which existed in the Source version, too!), add Primary/Secondary/Explosive slots, move primary SMGs to Secondary slots...
People kill me... “Who cares if the games broken we want new maps and guns that will probably be broken or break the game even more”... I get people are getting tired but it really hasn’t been that long of a wait for new content there’s worse cases of this. Then aside from that people want them to focus all their efforts on new maps and weapons etc.. So when they are released the game including the new content is still unbalanced and buggy AF! I’ll just sit here and continue to scratch the shit outta my head...
