It was Early 2020. I was a user of Train Simulator. Heard about all the good things about TSW, and bought it. I couldn’t understand why so many people were apprehensive of it. Time goes on. I never used to be big on video games. But TSW was one of the first I was genuinely excited about. I begin to purchase more DLC, in the hopes that they would also hold into the future. My hopes were fulfilled for a while with substitutions. End of March, 2020 - HRR releases. Very excited to see the 425. One of the most versatile German rolling stock. I thought it would substitute in MSB too. On release, it wasn’t able to. No big deal, I thought. We were told it was being worked on. June 2020 - I have almost all German DLC. My impression of DTG and TSW is very positive. Too much maybe. A big teaser. Maybe TSW2021 I thought. My expectations were right, except it was “TSW2” without the 021. A new game. I was caught off guard, considering it was a whole new game. I was really excited. Thought “maybe all our old problems will finally be fixed”. New core improvements. Sky. Adhesion. Editor. Even though I was told Old DLC would be “as-is”, I thought few improvements, such as adhesion and the scenario editor, would at least be able to be used. Today - I wake up. Couldn’t watch the QA stream, so read through a handy transcript prepared by the TSC members. My excitement turns to surprise, anger and then upsetness. When I was told “old DLC will stay as-is” I didn’t expect them to be completely buried under a graveyard named “Preserved collections”. DLC I bought as early as a month ago would hold no value. New routes, especially Köln-Aachen, would be limited by rolling stock. With the services carried by the ICE and 442; Köln could not be busier than Finnentrop. I am disappointed. Maybe I expected too much, but I know I’m not the only community member who is upset. All the time and money I spent on TSW is suddenly invalid. I don’t know how I can justify spending more on DTG. Seems like us old players don’t hold any more value for DTG.
