I'd guess this has been talked about, but I havn't seen anything, so I thought I'd bring it up.
I'm concerned that the multiple beta's we had, and especially the new mini-expansions will cause the already small comunity to be split up into even smaller groups.
It's a simple concept. Someone gets online, see's that very few others to play with, and then the instantly leaves. Someone else shows up a minute later and does the same thing. Thus the participation always stays low. Once we split the community up, it will pass a tipping point and suddenly the multiplayer will fall apart and never come back. This is my fear.
I have no desire to play Sins or purchase any additions to the game without the ability to enjoy multiplayer games.
I would like to see the mini-expansions remain compatible with older versions of the game so that the community can always at least default back to vanilla Sins.
Has there been any discussion on this issue I am not aware of?
