People need to remember that Johan had to step in to the Emperor project mid update after Jake "left" the company. I would guess they had a lot to fix and little time to do it before the release date. Not an excuse but that is likely why some features are problematic.
I am interested to see the upcoming patch info since Leviathan is completely under Johan's control. Hopefully a lot of old issues Jake refused to address will be fixed, as much as the engine will allow.
In my opinion, a noticeable decline started when Jake showed up so no wonder he's not my favorite game designer... But at first, it was covered by great map changes done by Trin Trangula.
I don't know whether it's entirely his fault but as a customer, I really don't care.
There are quite a few features in Leviathan that look like they were added just to be added (tall changes for example) so I'm skeptical, unfortunately... It has probably something to do with relocation to Tinto but yet again... As a customer who is asked to pay full expansion price, I don't care, these are expenses that should be covered by the company, not me.
That said I will surely give it another try as I really loved this game and there are still places I want to try.
