I really wish Asobo will open a communication channel here in the forum. At present other than Community Managers doing announcements there is a lack of communication from Asobo.
Developers reading the forum posts here is just half the story without an effective direct communications.
Most developers have a Project Manager or someone similar who addresses any concerns and gives some kind of response. This is totally lacking. Developer Q&A doesn’t really address this need for a direct communications.
With the current model it seems that all the issues raised are just that and nothing more. Yes, someone is reading them and are aware and working, But it leaves an unfavorable impression because there’s only a one way channel. It would be good if Asobo’s communications representative comes onboard and say what’s the issue, the problems encountered and the actions being undertaken. This channel can be more tightly moderated so that only constructive criticism and issues are discussed.
For e.g. how many would really understand that the atmospheric issues were present before SU5 and fixed but broken again. Some background information on the current issues would go a long way to help users understand and emphasize.
