GGG Debating the Future of PoE: Royale - Standalone or Special Event?

GGG Debating the Future of PoE: Royale - Standalone or Special Event? -

The Path of Exile site has been updated with a new article explaining how  the game's April Fool's "joke", Path of Exile: Royale, was created from concept to finished, playable product. While only playable on April 1st, Grinding Gear has received a lot of positive feedback and is debating the mode's future, either as a recurring event or possibly even a standalone version of PoE.

We have been inundated with requests to bring the mode back. It's a foregone conclusion at this stage that we'll be running it again in the future, but there's the big question of whether it can sustain itself enough to become a standalone game mode, or whether we should just have it as a cool event that we run occasionally. In either case, we have a lot of balance improvements planned that will make it more fun and less overrun by certain dominant skills. 

As a community, how do you feel we should proceed? Is it worth the resources to take this one-day prototype and polish it into a standalone supported game mode with ongoing improvements? We'd love to hear your thoughts.

Would you keep playing PoE: Royale?
