I suppose it's also important to point out that while Larian is a big group of people now, not all of them are working on Early Access. One portion works on maintenance, polish and implementing content to EA, while the rest works on actually finishing up the game. And not all of them are involved in writing community updates. In fact you'd count that on less than a hand. Then there's the nuance of corporation and communications, further complicated by Covid and different people working from home, all over the world.

So while processing feedback is fairly easy, I've collected about 80 pages from Discord and the feedback form from the game launcher has seen pages upon pages of feedback as well - Processing that, forwarding it and going through internal discussions, decisions, and then starting to map out what you may start talking about, is not something that's done in a week.

There's a lot more nuance to it than that, but I've tried my best to simplify the gist of it down to a few lines.

What I can tell you though, is that -so much feedback- have gone through the gates, that not only will just reading through it take time, but discussing it would take significantly longer. And only then can you start deciding on additions/changes - At least of what is based on player feedback.

Hopefully my ramblings are found worthwhile at least to some 🙈

They are worthwhile mate. You just need more little imps to help you with it. It's visible from a mile that there's one guy taking care of it. I used to work for a bank. The kind of boring one and the kind of no one heard of. They are everywhere but they are well hidden in the financial structures of this world. We had 5 people working in community relations department. Most of the time they were doing things totally not related to managing community cause a bank community is not exactly as active as a video game forum smile. Still, worst case scenario they could be assigned at any time to deal with a lot of incoming messages from forums, Facebook, Twitter , etc.

So it's more a question of Larian philosophy than anything else. Do you need to have a dedicated team only for this? Eeeeh....probably not. Your company won't cease to exist. Is it safer to avoid this kind of thread on the forum? Yes. On the internet, it doesn't matter what's true or not. What matters is the title of threads on forums and who screams louder. In the end, it's a question of company philosophy and policy.
