As a buyer in the initial drop, I'm ashamed to admit I don't like the feeling of the hall effect switches. They're squishy and soft like reds or a brown, and it feels like the keys have too much "wiggle" at the top. If you don't like reds or browns, you probably won't like this keyboard.

Did you get the 50g springs? Those were really light. Between slightly heavier springs and click or tactile leaves key feel is much improved this time around.

I found the heavier springs to actually feel quite 'light', I am sure the light springs were overkill for a lot of people. I have heard some people say the light spring from round 1 felt lighter than gateron clears, but i think this is because of the remarkable smoothness and lack of much friction. I think people underestimated how much that would offset the switch weight. With all linear switches, accidental keypresses is a thing since you get no feedback, and the lightweight spring exacerbated that.
Regardless, from what I hear, the round 2 has more tactility than even mod-m switches, which I am HIGHLY looking forward to. Cherry switches disappoint me in tactility, especially after using my favorite switch, alps orange. So glad you went with tactile/click leafs, this approach has served alps well. Afaik, nearly every highly regarded tactile mechanical switch used some form of tactile leaf.
