The LEP wasn't really pre-paying or pre-order but supporting continuous development of the game. And that's what FDEV did.Ah, so we were stupid to pre-pay. Do you think FDev share that view?
It's not a way to save money. If you wanted to do that you shouldn't have bought anything at all but wait until the game is on a sale
I believe there never was a clear plan...I think the plan changed is all, and it has been communicated extremely poorly. And after this long with neither anything to show for it nor any useful information on what's coming (or willingness to provide any) offers of refunds to those no longer happy to wait would be a good way to settle this.
On refunds: Wouldn't that signal they no longer believe in the future of the game? I believe that's probably the worst thing they could do.
