    I watched the whole video.. there is a part where Scathis says that they will like what is coming next in PA.. and I wander what it is (the video was recorded after Matchmaking).

    When he says that they've shown off a road map did he mean this?

    Which has next to no information on missing gameplay features outside of matchmaking... which is arguably, not a gameplay feature, but a meta-gameplay feature?

    I won't fall for those hypes anymore - he probably had leaderboards in mind which I don't care about.

    Love the game! But I hate when they say things like we know the road map. We have no idea what is still to come or what features have been scraped.

    Well it's a short term roadmap. Now the long term roadmap.... I hope there will be arough one soon, it would be nice :/

    Agreed. The problem with a short-term roadmap (especially one that doesn't list any gameplay features) is that... well, it's short term; it makes me feel like Uber don't actually have any long term goals that they're heavily committed to working towards and certainly doesn't give me any degree of confidence or renewed interest in playing/modding the game when "pathfinding improvements" is arguably the most interesting thing on the list for me personally...

    ...and even then it makes me think that this was pushed out as a retail release before the game was ready, when it's that obvious that a critical element of your game is still notably glitchy.

    It was kinda gut wrenching to see discussion about HR and recent goings-ons with PA.

    I was kinda hesitant about backing HR because of PA.

    But I'm also mad enough to continue throwing $$$ at PA. I just need incentive beyond just more keys.
