I see where your coming from.
In all honesty I gave up on hoping SSM would communicate with us in a decent matter after that thread they put out a while back asking for all that info regarding people's Internet connection. I lost it in that thread. After that I realised that they were never going to communicate on the level that the we want (which is not an unreasonable demand at all).
Based on survey feedback, swords and spears were the most asked for weapons. I am not a fan of hammers myself, but I'm sure more hammers will show up as well.
I'd like to see new world weapons show up in the game or new trap mechanics. Those would be patched in or part of the new map...(s)
