can you define NEW please ?
Basically anything that isn't just an "assurance" that devs are supposedly doing something.
A long time ago, in the age of myths and legends, when (believe it or not) game patches used to come out every 2 weeks or so, in the times before the marine sharks, the dev team actually took active part in communication with the community.
We gave suggestions, reported bugs and development team actually cared for it and kept us updated about not only what had been going on, but also what they were planning.
But sometime ago, they just stopped paying attention to our suggestions, glaringly obvious issues were ignored, community pleads were disregarded, and worst of all: they simply stopped informing us about their plans for this game.
And this is what it has looked like for over half a year now. No updates, no information, no nothing. The only 2 dev team members who still kept visiting the forum were Blexus (who remained rather vague with his information, not that I blame him) and He-who-is-not-Omegon.
So, to stop this Tzeentch-like rant, basically anything new, even any piece of actual information, any clue that this game is still in development and not abandoned.
You could say "a breath of fresh air" into this game, if you will.
Now I may understand if they wanted to make some sort of surprise, but making surprises that have to be waited on for several months, while the game is in decline is anything but good idea.
You don't just stop any sort of visible activity and seemingly disappear into the fog while more and more players (dedicated players) stop playing due to your disregard of their complaints and game's problems. And that had already been happening before the Space Marine DLC.
Recalling the time since the last patch sort of tends to make me agitated and pissed, so if at any point of this rebel speech I wrote something offensive, my apologies in advance, I didn't mean it.
