The lack of communication it the exact reason why rumors spread.
Look at what happened today, everyone was expecting a balance/bug fixes patch, since that’s has been the trend until now, and without any information from the the devs rumor have started to spread, and now here we are, speculating again, and potentially spreading more rumors…
I mean, I don’t want to know the details of everything the devs are working on, but some more info in general it wouldn’t hurt.
For example, I would like to know if they think to adjust the balance of the portoghese in the future and how they mean to do it (I say portos but it could be any civs), but even if I would like it, I completely understand why they would never share such information with the public.
What I would like is simply to know if they have planned for new balance changes or if they mean to stop for now, or for a period of time, if there will be a balance update in a few day, in a month, or there won’t be any. And the same thing happened with the buff fixes, or with map pool.
For example, those people who were more concerned about the map pool, I think that they too were frustrated that they didn’t know what to expect until today, so why people who were more concerned about other things shouldn’t be
That simply the kind of info I would like for them to share.
