Sword Coast Legends Free DLC

The Sword Coast Legends website offers a new "state of the game" message from Dan Tudge, president of developer n-Space (thanks PC Gamer). Noting the game's reception has been "polarizing," the update outlines hopes to depolarize things with plans for several pieces of DLC coming to the RPG, including the addition of preliminary mod support in December. The first piece of DLC is out today as a free download to celebrate Halloween. Here's word:
However, early user impressions for Sword Coast Legends have been polarizing. While many players love it, it is clear that for many, Sword Coast Legends did not meet their expectations. For those who have expressed disappointment in the game, I have just one thing to say: "We hear you." We are a very small, independent development team, and we would not have made it this far without you. We thank you for your continued support. In D&D, the party is everything, and you are the best party to have, by far.

As much and as long as we've labored to launch SCL, this is really just step one, a foundation for an even greater experience we have always intended to improve and expand. Our goal has always been to put Sword Coast Legends into the hands of would-be adventurers and to work with them to improve that experience. We have an aggressive list of content and updates planned for the near-term... one that will be delivered to you at no additional charge, starting TODAY!

This seems to be bombing pretty badly. I didn't following it that closely yet even to me it seems to be milking and riding nostalgia rather than paying homage. Maybe milking is the wrong word, lip-service at best might be more like it.
