So many possibilities squandered. So many different tags that could be taken advantage of. Although even more could be done to make things interesting.
Part of problem, I assume, is that we need developers that play and understand the game and meta. Maybe they do and things are just harder to code/fix than seem from the outside.
It'd be really nice if they began to reultilize the dev discussion section of the discourse and listen to players on what can be done to fix things and possibly slow the decline in population on all servers.
