And still no Dev vlog and just silence about that horrible patch. Looks like you are just trying to ignore the problem and your customers as usual. Seems like nothing has changed at PGI after all these years.

Thanks for the dynamic event programming. New event more than monthly! I have seen players return to the game and maybe a bunch of new players join the game. I saw someone mention recently your e-mail outreach efforts - keep it up. If we only hear about events via in game or community threads, we wont keep getting new/returning players (fresh meat).

I'll go ahead and announce it here until I get a post up, we're rolling back the weapons and MASC changes from the March patch in April, and will be establishing a Public Test Server before the end of the month, which will feature all of the weapons changes proposed by the Gulag player group (now called the Cauldron), and we should be able to run multiple iterations of PTS before the May patch, at which point assuming we have a positive outcome and consensus, those initial changes can be implemented for May.

We haven't done a Dev Vlog yet, because we had to sort this situation out, and establish our path moving forward. Now that we're confident in our plans, we'll get the Dev Vlog out within the next few days with more details about the April and May patches.

That is one hell of an April Fools joke set up. I'll be setting aside a few minutes to laugh, tomorrow, maybe next Friday.

<3 (provided it actually happens)

I think it's funny how starved MWO players are for stuff to happen that we even start having fun with stuff from the last update.

Thank you for responding to the feedback. I'm looking forward to giving the Cauldron PTS a go and hope to get a bunch of my fellow OOPSbros on to test stuff out. As frustrating as it was to see the March patch implemented I appreciate you all rolling back the negative aspects of it as that shows you all are listening to the community and can recognize the flaws with it. I hope we see positive balance changes to make more builds and weapons viable in time. It's just a shame you all can't roll it back any sooner, but I get if it takes time to make a new build that keeps the good from that patch while ditching the bad.

Pity, problem is I already un-ppc'd all my PPC builds... so yeah... a lot of C-Bills wasted then for me? O well, I'll keep them PPC-less I guess

It's not like it's easy maintaining a warehouse of over 600 mechs...

thank you for listening to the community and rolling back the march patch. i'm happy to know we're flexible enough to reverse course if something goes awry with decisions that affect gameplay negatively.

the only part of this statement that makes me nervous is "consensus". i'm not sure we'll see consensus across the player population even if the proposals are all incredible. some people just dont like change, dont want change, and aren't going to be willing to test the changes in order to understand how the game will be impacted for better or for worse.

is it possible to do a small event for the PTS? to get people to participate and experience the proposed rebalance for themselves? i think that would greatly improve participation and feedback from the PTS.

thanks again for all the time and effort you're putting into mwo. even if it doesnt always feel like it, it is appreciated.

Excellent! Thanks much!

Now, please request the powers that be to stop doing this. Repeated acts of dev-harm against their own game have never been a good look, but in this era of PGI being so desperate as to have you actively requesting the community for its input on how to revive and improve their game, then acting in a manner contrary to that input, comes off as even more...short sighted, even hostile, to that community.

Thanks again for pulling the patch back, and giving the Gulag's proposals a chance (even if it is only on a PTS).
