That is a great idea!
Wait what ... steam updated my game automatically.

Oh - the new developer do not offer an option to use the version I bought, participating in the Beta is not an option but a must for everyone who bought the game (their is a reason I never ever buy games on release date!).
Yeah, exactly this. The whole thing is a mess. Abstraction rushed this release, clearly didn't test it properly, and now aren't willing to roll back the game version to the stable, pretty much bug-free version that existed until they got involved. Not sure whether I feel more sad or angry about it all.I find it incomprehensible that they are not willing to give us access to the previous stable release via the branching option on Steam. Also, their explanation as to why they are not willing to give us access to the version we paid for and were enjoying just fine a week ago, is as half-baked as this unwanted "free update" and the supposed "hotfix" which apparently didn't really fix anything.
