The game is now playable. Sure, there are still a lot of things to tweak and I get that. But the next update MUST include some content. The timing is right and if they don't do it very soon the effects will diminsh significantly.
With the massive boost to SP gains they have drastically shortened timeframe they have to pour out some content. For now content needs to be at the top of the list and everything else should fall under that. If they don't dish out something very intriguing within the new 3 to 4 weeks I feel like they are missing a great opportunity to build on what they have done.
If we get another patch filled with tweaks and fixes to things that are already functional enough (for now) - I think we will see another significant drop in player numbers, and the door will remain shut (potentially permanently) for many would-be new players.
