Very big wall of text you got there. And I see that you understand that PS3 is suffering because of Microsofts "rules".
I'm not putting TE down in anyway, nor am I sucking up to them, but console do have limitations. Once I see the freezing issue fixed, I definetly will be playing a lot more then usual. And I will probably buy all the DLC to support them.
I'm sure you also realize that it's virtually free to update PC, and costs thousands of dollars to update console one time. If they did have plans for DLC (Shards, Characters, other content) they should have planned before and at least, given it a shot to try and put it onto console. Because, from what I hear about the Series EV and Summoner, you almost need them to beat most of the later Shards DLC.
Console is getting Insane+, and hopefully that won't be a huge letdown. This will definetly add more hours to gameplay, and hopefully increase loot stats/upgrades as well. We all need a challenge once and while, and this Insane+ hopefully will do the trick.
P.S - Trendy, could you give the Apprentice a boost for towers? Make his towers scale the way PC does, because some levels would be nice to run with his support. His Towers are just far under powered compared to the Huntress or Squire.
Just two minor things that you said wrong. First, that was not a wall of text. THIS is a wall of text:
Second, App towers aren't good on PC, either. They're all-right, but no-where near good enough to be used instead of a Squire.
