Resets were a pain because it was literally the same thing over and over and over and over again. I started going crazy at 24, so I decided that was good enough and upgraded all my equipment.
DD2 was monetized very poorly primarily due to investors. Now that CG have full rights to the game, I am fairly confident they will set things right with DDA. Personally not a fan of the artstyle, but to each their own.
Now, if CG decided to put DDA as an epic exclusive or riddle the game with P2W microtransactions, then we would know for certain that they're in it for the money and not for the passion of making a game or the community. Those would really be the only scenarios where I'd genuinely 100% leave the community for good.
