"Greetings Lawbreakers, and welcome to Patch 2.0 - the one where we adjust and do some cleanup after the major shift of last patch. Patch 1.4 introduced some sweeping changes to how health works in the game, bumping up base health values and adding out of combat regeneration. While our overall goal of increasing average lifespans was achieved, we overshot a bit with some of the tunings, so we're pulling back a bit on a few of those changes. We're also nudging up the headshot multipliers on a few of our weapons so that players with steady aim can whittle down the new health pools faster.

It will pay dividends on their next game (assuming they survive this one): "These guys really support their games!"

At the end of this all... if they survive this is the point that will actually matter.

I can't fault their conviction on it.. but I can certain question their sanity.

True, but we also bash devs for doing what is financially sustainable, be it ending promised support early due to not hitting performance targets, or putting in loot boxes.

I won't knock people for putting the customer before their own financial interests, even if it's in hopes one leads to the other.

Not at all. The game doesn't look bad, it just looks uninspired, and had the unfortunate timing of being released when there are more interesting and innovative things to play. If Blahman is having fun, good on him.

throwing good money after bad

People complain when a dev gives up on a game too quickly. Hell, people complain when EA shuts down the server of something released 10 years ago.

Even though this clearly isn't the best use of money for Boss Mode Games, I'm not going to knock or mock a dev giving more content to its paying customers, even if there are only 10 of them.

There are thousands of active players, just not all necessarily on at the same time. On top of that there are thousands more that own the game but are waiting for the update to play again.

And then there are several thousand new owners as of the past few days that bought the game in advance of the update that will probably be playing this weekend.

So yes it's worth it to them to keep patching the game, draw in new players, bring back old ones, and continue to grow the game for as long as they can. BKP (Boss Key Productions) is a new studio with a new IP, no reason to give up so soon.
