The point we're trying to make is that
that's what most of the patch notes would be.
Software is immensely complicated, server/client software even more so. There's a million little improvements and glitches they can fix that don't even make sense outside of the context of the code they're in, and even a layer of abstraction or two ("fixed a number of bugs related to error handling and logs when connections are dropped", or somtehing) is still not going to make that interesting or relevant to the players.
Really, I can see that you're just afraid they're going to silently nerf or buff something that you care about. Evidence from the beta suggests that that's not going to be the case.
If a few more patches come down the pipe and they're not
expressly labeled as server stability patches
, then your concerns may be warranted. As it is, I think many of us feel you're jumping the gun.
