Hardcore modes gave it actually a boost in pledges. Some minutes after announcing there was a third 10.000 $ pledge.

Give us more content, damnit, not a bunch of add-on party favors like companions and difficulty settings. Give me a lineup of abilities and spells to rival D&D's. Give me dungeons galore. Give me a richer backstory to the world, and ways to explore this lore.
All these updates just sound so shallow to me…too technical, not enough development of the main theme.
