Sad to say but I think the title sums it up.

So many complain that the game has a small staff, with no time to address issues, and this means that they're in "maintenance mode".

Then they chose to not waste time engaging in juvenile stupidity, and someone complains that this also means that the game is in "maintenance mode."

They really can't win at all...


(Never mind that people keep using "maintenance mode" for something that it does in fact not mean.)

They could always release plentiful content for all types of players while doing a April Fools Joke .

bah, last year they had idiots going "why did they waste time on this, they need to work on X pet feature or Y pet bug"

Then they don't do it and we got people going doom and gloom. Again.

Your points are unrelated and only reinforce the OP's post. They do have a small staff, don't address real issues, this does mean they are in maintenance mode. While in maintenance mode, they don't have time to waste on juvenile stupidity or have fun with their remaining player base, therefore it only reinforces that they are in maintenance mode.

Quite possibly they just know they shouldn't make a joke because the fact is becoming more and more true as time goes that the devs are a joke at developing the content and progress of this game.

I'm starting to think that Max 's posts should be stickied. They certainly make the most sense the majority of the time.

Considering when they did something last year people complained. It is just April 1, April fool's joke nothing that important. If you are saying because they didn't do something for April Fool's Day then maybe the problem is with you. My professor didn't do an April fool's day joke and yet no one complained.
