Your concerns are valid and I (although I'm not affiliated with SES) appreciate you using the forums to voice them.
I would just like to briefly say that although not much content has been released, there has been a ton of overhaul under the surface. For one, they just switched game engines! I don't know what that is like but I can only imagine it's a ton of work, including tweaking, fixing, and redoing some things to make compatible with the engine. This will also make things easier for them and allow more possibility for future content. So get ready, my friend!
