You know it might be nice if they actually finished the first game, before making an expansion.
I think finished is a subjective term.... but yes... though the original game from what I understand, only became the "finished" article after 3 or 4 expansions. So maybe their implementation plan was to phase in features over time. Who knows!?!
Wait a moment... is 'near future' simply an euphemism for 'yeah that project is finished' or is it merely on hold in regards to the devs' plans for expansions? As in going slower?
