I think we as a community have given developers plenty of opportunities to improve, but it's clear now that you're just planning to milk us without letting us know you plan on letting the game die. Most of the players I know have left, and I have been around since 2014. The spams on patchwork was a clear indication of decreasing quality, then 31st century, which doesn't require an essay on why it sucks. But this DLC is clear you're just planning on pass grinding as gameplay, while milking coin on every other aspect that you can. For my friend, the moment he decided the game was officially dead was when he realized the feats of the base mods and the grind it signified. For me, when I saw exactly how many materials and catalysts were required for the logic wings. At that point it's pretty much (even more) exhaustive grind. Instead of actually implementing clamping stats so we can run lower tier runs with lower cr players and still have it be fun, we ravage them instead ruining it for everyone, and in it's stead we are expected to just grind the last 3 DLC's. The bases had so much potential gameplay for both free players and members, potential that was left untouched, ironically, they still release items for bases every event. But for what?? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ At no time is any player encouraged to visit other's bases. It's an annoyance rather. I say that despite the fact that I had arranged my base beautifully with all 600 base items. I don't know how DCUO has it's departments, but it's unfair that while whatever department is in charge of styling and models is nailing it, the people in charge of gameplay are by far doing the bare minimum. If that's called bare minimum. Grinding. And its not only matter of grind. A few months ago all the best dps started leaving. Progressively all of the friends I had since years ago started leaving for one reason. Speedhackers. They struggled to get 380 sp, 400, 500. And now literally anyone comes and just ruins it for everyone. And they're pretty obvious and easy to notice as well. Whenever you meet a speedhacker there's little room for doubt and think "ah well, maybe he's just that good" no they just come and ruin it, even if they try to hide it using speedster movement mode. It's unfair to all the friends I see putting like 300% the effort I put. I had some premium friends who left because they failed breakthroughs that were incredibly hard to get, they weren't good with mechanics, but their dps was elite. Then like 4 months ago hackers started spreading, and now they all have 200 artifacts. Why wouldn't they? They've been speedhacking for months with no consequence. And DCUO is pretty fine with them, in fact so fine twice I have tried reporting them, and I can't submit any video or nothing. I even uploaded to drive and youtube and support was like "yeah no, we can't open a simple link we're just that incompetent" and they crossed their arms. Some people have told me the same. And the real deal breaker is, between all these issues, gameplay, grinding, hackers, the only thing was keeping me in the game was the social aspect, the friends, but now it's deserted, heck even the newcomers I met recently quit the game. I guess I ended up being a bigger chump. I know the usuals that hang around the forums will probably defend and try to pretend they're blind regarding the issue. Any player expressing a concern for the game is either denied, or their comment deleted by a certain you know who. Or he just closes comments. Heck he might appear even here and hide this thread. But that's every dying company's attitude and I don't care. The issue stands, and I'm taking my money. Every favorite multiplayer game I've had has died for the same thing. Hackers. But this game has a thousands of issues above that, plenty of resources, but no intention to do anything about them. I'm leaving and taking my money with me. That's all.
