"Soon(tm)" I think was actually coined by Blizzard, most likely, over the many years that World of Warcraft was a thing. Or at least that's the earliest that I remember seeing the term pop up. I don't really want to split hairs as to who did what first, I mean, yeah, I do realize that Chucklefish had reacted harshly to some things, but yet I also recognize the fans have been toxic too. Starbound started as a labor of love by a small team that just wanted to make their dream game come true. I remember the old roadmaps and how they would talk about how they wanted to make this truly awesome game. Then they stick it up for Early Access and then some people start complaining and they get jaded and sometimes they shut this post down or that post down, the players get toxic then it just sours their dream which never really fully came true I don't think... I can't blame them for being jaded and just wanting to sweep the thing away and go to other projects instead. But hey. At least it is so easy to mod. I know some people above said that it's a bad thing the game is so heavily bent on modding... but... just imagine if Starbound was not so easy to mod. Then the game would just be entirely lacking in content with no way to remedy it at all.
