No offense, but you are not sticking with them, why should they care about you. I would personally rather them focus on teh individuals that are sticking with them. You might say thats abit of a fanboy attitude, but so be it. Stardock does and has always gotten it right with the customers that stick with them. I will personally let the game set on my shelf before i send it for a refund. I personally think it is a fun game even in its current state.
The fact that you posted this here IMHO is just to show you hate the game and bring bad press IMHO. You dont really care if Stardock keeps you updated on Elemental. Return it and move on.
