The only happenings were Tiggs getting out of her vacation to push another extra armas sale.
I was always an opponent to weapon rebalance, and they have taken it too far, but there are great things LO implemented, which would never happen under G1:
Hand to hand trade system;
Getting the game rid of a shame of having lootboxes;
Putting armas stuff to the joker store, giving the store purpose and bringing down the paywall.
These three were great achievements of LO.
Sadly, it won't save the game if one can't play it due to rererebalancing stuff and letting cheaters play.
