Though to be honest what this answer really reveals is "we didn't have a real end game ready or in mind and aren't sure how to retain customers, the game was released before it was quite ready, possibly because of the giant outcry from the fans"
Hindsight is 20/20 I suppose, but we believed pre-release that the item hunt would be far more sustainable, and would work to be a proper end-game for quite a while. That didn't turn out to be true, and we recognize that.
Oh wow you responded to my post, wasn't expecting that. Sorry I wanted to edit in that I wasn't trying to be overly negative and am truly thankful for really any posts we can get that give us insight into what goes on behind the scenes.
