The devs appear to be listening primarily to the very top handful of very vocal players in regards to balance and difficulty in gameplay as if this were some competitive mp game. So to make the game more accessible, it seems they decided to add what amounts to free loot in the last patch. Fart and get a loot box, accidentally drop a cannon ball on a few skaven heads and get another loot box, play in the nude and get another. j/k on that last one, at least I think I am.

I would rather they just quit nerfing/buffing everything to please a handful of players while ignoring the rest. That and I wish they would work on bugs and glitches b4 they started mucking with balance issues that only really exist in the heads of players more concerned with kill counts than completing the level.
Rant over, still mostly enjoying the game. Just venting here.

I put a couple of hundred hours into the game. very happy with it overall. have not played it for the past couple of weeks, although the last patch does seem interesting. The loot stuff, much of it appears to be one time? Really though the game has a steep learning curve. New players playing recruit are going to have the worst weapons, weakest characters and be teamed with other idiots and will likely consistently fail. I don't see an issue handing out more loot to give a leg up on people starting out.

For the other issues... sure, bug fixing would be good, but so will be dedicated servers, whenever they come out. The weapon balancing, eh, I am fine with that. It probably is just tweaking numbers in a spreadsheet and not any type of heavy time investment. I am sure they are working their priorities list, but it is a small team working on what became a super successful game and trying to maintain the momentum.

Been playing this game a lot in the last few months. Really fun game with tons of reply value. Bots also aren't to bad to play with as they also use your characters equipment. Latest patch added a roguelike game mode which ramps up difficulty over time.

Can't wait for Darktide (basically this game but in 40k universe).
