Scandal? There's no scandal here. I'm glad they're letting the competitive scene play out before letting people go nuts on custom variations. A large part of your argument is predicated on the fact that they're not balance patching quickly enough for your liking, but then you're chastising NRS for not including a feature that will make balance (or at least the perception of it) fly completely off the rails.Let's be clear again. The whole scandal about custom variations is massively unethical. To charge 100 dollars for what will not even be the complete edition of your product, is unethical. To ask people to pay in advance for this and quasi reward them for it, is unethical. To not support your content creators is unethical.
I don't care about Scoprion's teleport. I don't lose to scorpions. It should be adjusted yes, but it's the state and staleness of the game that matters.
I mean, if you want to "boycott" the game by not playing anymore, that's entirely your right. But it's really hard for me to see this as an ethical issue versus the game just not being exactly what individual people want.
