After being here since 2018 and closely following and awaiting uptimes during weekends the answer to your question is simply "yes".
there have been different days, where there was interaction with its costumers. but after their rush into the beta the bonds between the user base and the studio and its vision have drifted apart.
to my humble opinion DU has reached a point beyond repair (current state). maybe the tech they developed will work, maybe not (lag and performence problems have been around all along, upto today).
AVA is, lets say, "canceled" with no ETA. space pvp is a browser game in current state even territory warfare is not more than a concept. atmo pvp is going to be the same meaningless mess just with bad pilots crashing.
building and voxeling is nice.
industry is entirely like: farm t1 ore, sell it to the market bots ... for like 4 weeks at an 40h/week job (very like much much more) to build (get up running again) lets say a L-Container line.
we are at a state of the game, where it is inevitable to do a complete server wipe, or start with a broken game in terms of the eco and player/org developement level.
more over, the ATV folks spread the word ahead of 0.23(/0.22) that nq expects most of thier community to break apart due to the changes.
nq has given up on its playerbase. by now, not even the server tech is worth selling anymore.
it hurts, but its time to give up the 35x L-static-core base we dug out with only 3 active players and move on. hopefully nq will reconsider a revamp.
lots of players, like myself, are not going to invest more time into DU untill there is clarification in what direction du is going to move: shut down, revamp, be an mmo or be a simulation.
in case the path is going to be more and more a simulation, i want a refund!
dont get me wrong, i not sorry for the thousands of hours i played du, but i realized its not going to be what i bought despite thier promises.
much love to you guys
