The expansion is knocking the door

In three days, the expansion will start downloading into our hard drives like birds do in summer. Right now, everybody is waiting, holding their breath until the expansion lands. There aren't many forum threads about it because, with all those delays, everything that can be said, has already been said. Some people expect an awesome expansion that will improve a lot the game and bring the people back to Agon. Others have lost hope of something truly meaningful, they are currently enjoying the game and only want their game experience not to be fucked up. The cautious player is already getting prepared for the expansion: the wealthy one has already buyed some deeds because the addition of more house spots in villages is one of the expected features, others have a good stock of steedgrass so they can be the ones to make dozens of Mahirim Bears and Blue Tail Runners, if they are implemented on tuesday.
What surprises me the most is the lack of Expansion Notes or, at least, some spotlights about what's going to be in it. It's very understandable that Aventurine would want to surprise their players with the new and amazing Runner model but players would be so terribly happy if there were a couple spotlights per week or something like that. They keep saying they want to improve Dev Communication and I really thing they should do it. A little effort would be translated in a lot of very happy players and great mouth to mouth advertising.
