Hopefully they'll add more content, open it up to be more moddable and generally improve the game, but there is a tendency with Rogue style games to look at this sort of balance problem and just chalk it up to bad luck and not needing to be fixed.

Drones are similar, but have a tendency to turn off when they feel like it.
