same, i do like when they talk openly, and make comments. But CS:GO community is way too toxic as well to be so openly on the forums, or socials. They rather be silent and check the data, which i respect.
Also its true most modern devs nowadays stream on twitch, tweet constantly feedback, keep constant updates on whats happening, etc..
but Valve is kinda "unique" with their methods, i respect it, cuz if u announce Source 2 for example for Next May, and then u have to delay it for 1 year or 2, then community would lose their shit understandably.
btw there is more people working on the game, its probably not 4 devs lol, i think most dont like the "exposure" at all.
