The problem for me is that gameplay-wise, and from an offline perspective, CloD is still the same disappointment as on release day, more than a year ago. Not a single one of my major complaints have been fixed so far. Sure, I'm looking forward to the performance patch, but honestly: I don't need one. I can run the game on high settings just fine. So the coming patch won't change a thing about what I really care about: pretending to fly in the Battle of Britain. I have no idea how long it will take the devs to tackle the stuff that's important for me: AI, FMs, radio commands, weather system, improved terrain that actually looks like England (hedges!), ships for the Kanalkampf phase, etc...
