Gameplay Faction formed!


#223

Sorry but if these people are supposed to be speaking for the player base, the members should be disclosed by PG to the players so we know who to speak directly to or know we are responding to something these players post about that they want player feedback on (assuming they can since you forced them to sign an NDA)


#224

I have nothing against any of those who’ve already revealed their in the group. Like I said earlier I hope you guys can represent us well and that PG actually listens. I’m happy that there is even a player group they are consulting with - I’ve advocated for this for ages.

My gripe (not speaking for everyone here), is the process by which this has come about, and also that there clearly isn’t good representation across all player levels (yes yes all high levels have been low levels once - how many actually remember what it was like? I can’t remember what it was like in Gold tier and I’m only just into Sapphire now), and finally an NDA just sends a real bad message you know? :man_shrugging:


#225

With all due respect I’m sure the Great Riots of 4.0 played a part in this revert


#226

NDAs are pretty common for situations where testing will happen - not to disclose things in advance, do naughty things, all suggestions belong to the company, etc. If there’d be testing in Dave’s group, I’d imagine the company would require it too.


#227

Please, find one quote from me, anywhere, here, on Line, facebook, anywhere, that in context, indicates I am a Pawn for PG.

Have some hope.

I know there is little reason to have hope. But hold on to it anyway, even if for just a little longer. Things have gone horribly wrong too many times. This has all happened before. PG is just trying to placate us until they figure out another way to get our money… Maybe.

But sometimes things do change.


#228

You’re wrong again. Everything is still horribly out of wack. Didn’t change a damn thing but a few stats. Game play is still miserablely easy and boring .


#229

The problem with this was…it was merely undoing the previous damage. Ashenvale was within 2 years ago so people are not speaking theoretically but from experience.

I would disagree, the state of balance at the moment is shockingly bad, even by the standards I have seen over the years.

We won’t know if this will become Ashenvale 2.0 yet, but the concerns are founded by previous actions not just speculation. The issue has rarely been the ideas, but more the pace or lack of execution of the discussions by PG.


#230

Perhaps - we’ll see what happens. But I ain’t signing no NDA I can tell you that right now so he can kick me when that happens. Just my personal opinion.

In my job NDA’s come by my desk almost weekly - I understand the need for them - just not in this context.


#231

This post was flagged by the community and is temporarily hidden.


#232

It was him/her and only him/her that brought about the re-re-re-rebalance after that shitshow by PG. you can’t question a creator faction member.


#233

We aren’t talking about CF here, so that is an unrelated shot at something I do in my free time. Pointless.

So far, all I’ve gathered from you is that you complain endlessly without offering solutions and insult anyone who tries to promote a healthy discussion.

This made me giggle. & I think the riots are part of why he reached out to me.

Instead of being determined to be unhappy, I am going to enjoy the small victories - HOWEVER small - because it means steps are being taken in the proper direction. It is also relieving to know that they aren’t putting earplugs in and sitting around letting everything burn- they are actually trying to find a resolution.


#234

This seems to be a sticking point and even I wonder what the process should be? If it was by performance in the game…then that would be a very small group. Understanding of mechanics and the large scale implications? Even less. Popularity? Perhaps, but not sure you would need a group for that. It does seem arbitrary but once again, the goal/aim in a more specified manner would help determine who would give the best input.


#235

So, you know this because???

You know this because???

Also, you know this how?

Ashenvale was a colossal failure for several reasons. Why would we (or PG) wish to repeat this?


#236

More like a buzz in the ear of an open minded employee who was then able to sway a few others and lean in a more favorable direction


#237

There’s no test environment set up for this as has been stated over and over. I’ve also been privy to watch this same diversion tactic from PG over and over. They’re really good at tricking the weak minding like song bird over there


#238

It’s a tough one I agree - I’m not saying its easy. This is the best I could come up with at short notice. I wanted to avoid a whole popularity contest thing through an election, and also a farce like those contests that get run (e.g. upload your videos of you flying etc) where no one know what the winning criteria is.

EDIT: who knows, we may have ended up with exactly the same people as currently, but at least the process would have been open, consultative and clear to everyone.


#239

Actually I have provided quick and effective temporary solutions in conversations with eggtoken if you choose to read the thread, not selectively read, just sit and read. So immature jabs at emotional well being aren’t helping your argument as to why this “Private Sub thread” group is an enormous step in the right direction.


#240

It must’ve gotten lost amongst all your griping. :woman_shrugging:t2:


#242

hey, he named himself better than god. If he does make decisions he won’t be here blah blah blah for days. He would’ve already being better than god and making supreme decisions that will take the game to a better place. What do we see now, just keep talking keep talking keep negative shit floating.

A lot of talking. Haven’t seen him done much to it except opened up a thread of his own.


#244

I think skepticism is justified at the moment.

Maybe we can see what happens.

This is a valid point. If this faction is to be a long-term thing, and I see no reason why it should not, I definitely agree that the method of becoming a member should be different in the future (even if that means I’m not a member).

It was something I neither asked for nor sought. Would it have been better if I had turned it down?
