    Reasons:
    1. FreeBuild has been in maintenance for 0.75 years- 1.9 was only in development for 0.5 years!
    2. A new friend and party system has been "in the works" ever since I came here- 0.5 years ago.
    3. TD Tower Skins has been in "Coming Soon!" status for 0.91 years. "Coming soon"... lol.
    4. North American servers has been "in the works" for the same amount of time as the new friend/party system.
    5. A lot of the really popular and wanted suggestions have not been looked at by the devs.
    6. The merge was supposed to be fully completed in "a few months". A few months later... still only TD and BW, and they only have one gamemode.

    By "we need more devs", I mean that we should have an application form or something, just like helper and builder. But then again, it's a job you get paid for.

    Getting more developers would not suddenly solve every server issue. They're all always busy working on stuff for the server, it's not that they sit around doing nothing.
    Additionally, it's not as easy as you think to just "get more devs", they have to have the correct skills and mindset for it.

    I think we don't need more devs.
    1-3 people per project is enough imo.
    With this lower amount of devs, it's easier to decide things, and, they can work without distraction.

    It really is though, like for example if my dog walks away from home, I just hire some more devs and the problem is solved!

    they just can't give information about it, otherwise it won't be a suprise. Be patient for some time and enjoy the games we now have :)

    Recruiting developers isn't that easy. If a person want to be a developer he need to show what he made and stuff and also need to be trust.

    Also, you need to trust he's older than 16 and able to work, due you get pay as Developer (watch out, not the Jr. Devs)

    I think add more devs won't solve the problem, I know that it's anoying that we still can't join freebuild and all that stuff that you said but we can't do anything so we have to wait.

    Yes mega, the dev must be trust. If he is not trust, we will have a problem. All our devs are very trust. :p
