Basically having a trial run for a week for all the new dragons including mythics for players to test out and give their feedback I know CF does that, but players like me would like to try out the dragon(s) themselves as I told others but whatever a player does with the dragon does not count towards anything like events/egg token missions etc
Just to see if the dragon is suitable for players not saying anything to replace CF I go off what I can see because not everyone has the lvl 10 gear nor the rider(s) for the dragon and when their week is up they too can give feedback to PG on any discrepancies about that dragon just a thought that’s all
What are your specific suggestions? How would they test it? Are you talking pre season like a public test environment? Or are you talking about at the start of the season?
What specifically would they not count towards?
I am not against having a few trial runs but…. I am not quite sure I think the feedback side of things will change anything. The GPF tend to be pretty reasonable with balance. And the community at wide seems more interested in brute forcing power creep through. That and PG is notoriously slow to respond to feedback, if they ever do.
My concern is everyone is talking about atlas “oh it’s slow” I don’t care about atlas I care about the dragon’s efficiency and viability if it’s not to the player’s standard on atlas oh well, when I say nothing is counted on the dragon being tested out I mean nothing is counted since players would use those test dragons to exploit the game yes it can be used in events but it’s not going to count the points ita so players can get a feel of that dragon, if it suits their style of flying, if not just send the pros and cons of the dragon to pg on the feed back
Just throwing out ideas to keep the game fresh like when I introduce something new in my restaurant we have the taste and critique session with the inner circle then we see what can do to make it better and efficient to restaurant speed and quality once that part is successful then we introduce it to the people to have them try the food. It’s a hit or miss but in the end we all learn from the experience
Well they need to be fired or disciplined because some mythics are too weak or too strong, I want to get Avernic but since the surt incident I said it’s gonna be a long time before I pick a sorcerer mythic
CF in my opinion are legends some of the best flyers on this game even though @Taco doesn’t like to fly hunters I seen her fly them she is just as good as the next hunter flyer I like hunters because of their complexity and difficulty but I don’t want to be tribalistic and just get hunter mythics I like to have other types of mythics yes I have ikaros and nockmar even though i just got him based on his “I will destroy your base” look I like variety but seeing the same old concept and PG not taking any constructive criticism on a dragon until after the fact is the only thing that bothers me
Like right now a employee asked me about adding a sticky chicken recipe to the menu right now that’s what I’m currently doing what I must take in consideration on the dish is can I make it either spicy or not spicy option but without effecting the taste, like one I could not do because it’s a Indian dish which is the peanut butter chicken
PG quite famously ignores feedback from all factions and from players for years. Even the changes they do make are late. I am not sure what adding game wise testing would add if they don’t listen to the best fliers now.
Sure. But they don’t test dragons. That’s the GPF. Let’s give respect where it’s due for the people who do that particular work.
The people who do that type of work must not pay attention to details like against tough bases defended double and triple defended, it’s like a scientific experiment take all the variables and go through them all (x)amount of times
GPF is a ADVICE role for PG.
We test the dragons (yes with 1/2/3 defenders when available). GPF doesnt sign off on any dragon decision, we make suggestions and PG uses that to what they think is best, agreeing with GPF or not.
Anyone who knows me, knows l, and most of GPF,absolutely love flying defended runs so this is just a blind assumption to be untrue.
As for testing all dragons for the player base. How will this be monitored, people will abuse this in pvp, atlas and gain a unfair advantage. The amount of time PG has to invest to give every player the dragons, runes, riders will not be sustainable.
They did try this with the shrine dragon, and it broke the game. Ryuu is sacred not to be touched.
