I'm really not as forgiving considering I've been through it for 3 years now. I just want to play the **** game I paid for. Yes its launch, but honestly they screwed up by having such a short and small phase 4. Which failed miserably by the way. They needed more time and instead just ******** over the user base once again. They keep ruining the franchise.
Yes, it sucks. No one will disagree with you there. Has it tarnished the shiny hopes that everyone had for launch? Yes. Is it also limited to one aspect of the game that's giving us all so much hassle? Yes. Outside of this one, specific area of trouble, is the game pretty darn good? Yes.
I'm sure they will provide some form of recompense once it's been discussed with the powers-that-be, and they have continually apologized in several ways. They also have been working around-the-clock to solve the problem, and informing us about it. There's not much point in getting mad about it until we see what the final fall-out is, but the damage will be greater to their wallet than yours, which is unfortunate for all of the hard work they put into ARR. They want it fixed far more than you do, for their own sake, and nothing is more of a motivator than self-preservation.
