...it would be best to have SE shut down the servers until
the game is finished the way they want it be?
None of the complaining is getting anyone anywhere any more;
all the problems have been beaten to death. Nothing new is
brought to light other than in response to patches. SE knows
all the complaints; they either take them to heart or they don't.
I say that SE should shut down the servers and make all the changes
that they want in order to complete the game as they envision it.
Once they do this they can open things up as open beta again.
What? You think this is harsh? Maybe. But the people who are
angry probably won't stick around anyway, and those who like the
game will return. It seems to me that the way things stand it's
become a death by a thousand cuts. The rewrite will take some
time, and it makes no sense to do that in public.
