The ongoing rift between the fans and developers of Payday 2 does not seem to be ending soon, but there is some progress. If unaware, developer OVERKILL added safes that could be earned at the end of successful heists. The kicker; you need drills to open these safes, which cost $2.50. This may not have been such a big deal if the drills were more obtainable, via means other than a transaction. Adding microtransactions to Payday 2 has not set well at all with the community, who have been quite vocal of their displeasure. This even has lead to the strike of three community moderators until developer OVERKILL addressed the situation.
Almir Listo of OVERKILL wrote an update on the game's Steam page and issuing an apology as well. This is what Almir wrote in regards to apologizing to fans:
"The past few weeks have been some of the most challenging in the history of this community. Players have been angry with us, media have written about us en masse and our volunteer moderators went on strike. For all the distress we've caused the past few weeks, I'd just like to take the time and say that we’re sorry. We've done a lot of things right in the past, but these past few weeks we screwed up. We need to get better at many things, and we will do our best to improve as soon as possible. "
Almir even posted a link to a two hour discussion between him and the three community moderators. You can check out that video by clicking here. It is a very honest and open discussion that is worth listening to if you are invested in the current state of Payday 2. OVERKILL has quite a problem on their hands, and time will tell if they will be able to please their fanbase.
