I'm also in favour of more communication (I complained about this here
), and many others did so elsewhere).
Personally, it's not out of need for sustained interest. I don't intend to see much more of the game, especially as far as the story is concerned. In fact, I'll probably be all done with EA by the end of January.
It's about transparency and usefulness.
It would great if Larian could let us know what they have on their fix lists. Which problems they've acknowledged and believe they can solve. Not necessary with an absolute time frame, but maybe more an order ("this first, this later, probably"). For instance, it wouldn't have hurt to say "we've heard a lot of you found the controls very subpar, we're currently working on it, we expect the jump to receive improvements soon".
This would increased the signal-to-noise ration in the feedback. Which could simplify the task of whoever at Larian is monitoring what players say. And it would simplify the task of players who play-test, as we could focus on what's not already under work.
Well, I could write much more, but I think I've said the main thing. Please, Larian, communicate a bit more.
