I have to give Yoshi props for being so communicative this week.
However I'm not sure that the timing for this letter is optimal. Unless he plans to keep that pace for the months to come.
I mean, there is a great effervescence around next patch, as there was before and slightly after 1.15a.
Then there were 2-3 weeks without any communication from the team followed by an extremely disappointing patch, which IMO hurt the community's mood badly.
I think he could manage his communication the same way he manages the updates, give a tidbit every week or so (preferably between the patches) to constantly keep the community on a high and making it expect the coming changes with enthusiasm.
BTW I am not complaining at all I'm just saying that managing the fanbase enthusiasm is the key to bring back players once the game is fixed, trust is more easily lost than gained
