I think we got it now, wait for the next upgrade. This is fair.
I think the biggest issue most of us had was lack of transparence because Patch 0.35 Notes had some very clear Sentences on Relics and how they would be received which are incongruent and misleading given what is really going on - that there will be a new feature.
My suggestion, PLEASE be more transparent.
If there is something that we as players need to wait for in another patch to really appreciate a change rolled out already, then please just say so. The whole searching endlessly, the funk created by the nonexistance, all the drama that ensued the patch could have been avoided by just saying what you (@Salty ) ended up saying anyways - “we rolled out relics, there is an infinitesimal chance in current systems but there will be a new feature” - you could even sell it in a way that we would anticipate the new feature rather than be all kinds of annoyed at searching for something that is written into the patch notes but really at a too low level to make a difference. The discussions on whether the game has become unplayable (no more evolution) would have been ended before it ever started (wait for new feature, this is early access).
So I am asking again - please be a bit mroe transparent.
The current player base on the forum is clearly mostly rooting for this game and willing to sit this all out. Just be clear on what you are doing without of course saying too much. But that relics were part of a new feature was clear to you when you rolled out the update I would hope. So you could have just said so.
