while i will not deny how much of an abrasive perosn i am concerning horrible changes, it would do good to DE to look at HOW the playerbase reacted so violently to a simply mistake. any other game dev, they would have polite feedback. you? you get a whole burning explosion. this is not pretty to understand for you guys, but i'll say it. Your player base does not trust you.
i think that along the years you're wounded this trust too much like when doing bad decision, while trying to keep them ( like lootframe, for exemples. ) . it's time for you to start thinking about yourself, and try to understand why the player base reacts so violently to what you do that they dislike. years long of abuse turned them like that. you need to change it.
