While playable in its current state and fun, it's extremely barebones. They still have a lot of content planned:

Which now that I've seen all the game has to offer in its current state, makes a lot of sense. Season mode especially needs a lot of work, there are some odd visual occurrences (not bugs, but things with how the game displays) that make it look like it isn't quite ready yet, the announcers start repeating themselves early and often (made more annoying because it's all comedy - imagine paying to see stand-up and the comedian only has five minutes of material, but a sixty minute set), there are very few audio tracks, there are more teams than team variety (something they plan on fleshing out), the list goes on but that's enough free info. Overall it really needs that Early Access flag.

Their first kickstarter failed, the second one only succeeded because they set the goal much lower. They likely decided to do this as an unmarked EA title and then if it became successful, eventually fill it in closer to what it would have been if the first Kickstarter with its greater funding goal had been met.

Yeah seriously, these guys are straight up avoiding doing their own marketing campaign to save coin and instead trying to convince whatever members of the early-access (though unofficial early-access) installbase is devoted to the product enough to do the marketing for them, to do the marketing for them and dangling the idea of more sales = more content as a reward for doing the lift for them.

First, none of this happens if the game is not successful. You can help us make the game successful by promoting it through your social sites, by writing reviews and streaming.

From the preamble of that "upcoming features" blog. "None of this happens unless you help us sell more copies of our game." Just really wanting to point at what this is here. Do not buy this game right now. I mean, do what you want, just saying, holy s***...

And yes, I'm fully aware that by posting this, I'm pointing at their product. I'm hoping to deter sales though, because even though I'm locked in with this purchase now, this is an abysmal practice.

It was early access when I bought it a month or 2 ago, you've got some good points (especially the commentary), but what's there is worth the asking price imo especially if there's more content on the way. I'm glad I bought it, I'd like to see it do well enough that they can make make more games.

Seems like a developer being upfront and honest about the relation between what a game's fans do and the revenue generated by the game. Are you saying that it's a bad thing because the developers brought attention to it and it's a totally a-OK fine/good thing when they don't draw attention to it but still profit from it anyway?

Also, if the developers are on such a tight budget that they need more sales to allow further game development then wouldn't telling people to not buy it be a better way of causing the studio to shut down thereby halting all further development rather than spurring the studio onward in a starving artist fashion to create new content?

Not sure I see the problem here when when "word of mouth" is a known factor, especially not when the person who posted the news article neither asked folks to nor implied that they should lie on behalf of the developers in an attempt to boost sales.
Logic is the antithesis of faith, else why is it that faith defies logic while logic denies faith?
