And, just like you, I had some pretty big hopes for GCI. As awesome and loyal as the community was (I've never engaged with the community as I have here, after all) I thought that Monolith would work hard to keep it alive, not just to show the community their appreciation but also to secure our loyalty for future endeavors.
And like Impostah said, this seemed pretty likely for a while. But then it just... stopped. Somehow, the mood changed and that's when the lies started coming.
As I've said before, I think we deserve better than this. I expected them to work hard for GCI, but now I barely even expect them to work for it at all, and the fact that vague-as-**** answers are the best we can hope for now (apparently) kind of sucks - I think most of us expected them to be fairly open and communicative because that's what they told us they were going for.
