“Every 2 updates” was from Salty - and I believe when I asked her about this a few weeks ago on stream she did say that 4.7.5 should be the next Switch update accordingly, though I don’t remember the exact wording of the answer. It’s something I’ve tried to get clear info on when possible, but clearly the system of “one person asks on a dev stream, communicates the answer as they understand it through their Discord servers, and whatever everyone else hears amounts to a game of Telephone”, does not work.
We need clearer communication. The way things have been lately (especially since the Guild Wars issue and the lack of even partial compensation), the feeling in the community has been that you don’t particularly care about the Switch version or its player base. My fear is that more people seem to be quitting because of that feeling, which would in turn make Switch an even smaller and more overlooked/ignored platform for Gems of War, which would make more people quit, and so on… There needs to be enough effort to keep the player base active and growing, and not resentful.
I think for starters, any patch that is on Switch should have the Switch release explicitly mentioned in the patch notes, and this mention should include links to all the preceding patch notes that are also being bundled in and hence relevant for Switch players. For example, the 4.8 patch notes would have a brief paragraph on the Switch version that also links to the notes for 4.7 and 4.7.5. That would make it a lot easier for people to get first-hand info on what’s changing for us.
I might come back later with a few more thoughts, but that’s what stands out the most in my mind right now.
