The reason we would get filler on console is because they could only load new troops into the game files via an update. Now that they can push new troops out at any time, there is no need for filler. There is also no need for them to indicate any future release dates until the day that they want to push a new troop.
I’m still hopeful that we’ll get to see a few weeks at a time, but there is no technical reason that they need to do that anymore. I think it was in a recent stream that they said that they have months worth of troops ready to go, they just haven’t pushed them to the game files in their finished form yet.
