I'm sure the community team find it tedious to type, "We know you're excited about [critical make-or-break issue] and we have no news about that right now, but we will let you know as soon as something develops," 50 times in a row and would like a break. After all, they weren't saying anything then, just as they aren't now.
I thought they had a NotePad document open on their desktop and just copy pasta'd it in.
If the above is true (drop off in communication coming before redundancies) are we going to see this become worse? Sometimes it also feels like the forum moderation team and communication team don't talk to each other... or the developers, game support...
It would be nice if they could revisit the Guild Summit talk, make a list and say "no" to whatever items they're no longer bringing in, so we can stop waiting for them.
