Hey everyone!

I’m back! Enjoyed a long weekend due to the holiday and with it being my third week with the team, I’m ready and excited to dive back into it!

Since my posts tend to just evolve into a conversation about some aspect of the game, lets try and focus on a singular topic so I can gather information for the devs.

Before I ask my question…

  1. Don’t kill the messengar. (The messenger being me. I’m just gathering the information to present to the devs.)
  2. I’m human. And have human feelings. Please be nice even when feeling passionate about a topic.
  3. We are in this together, you, the devs, me and other players. Please don’t attack anyone for their ideas.
  4. Don’t kill the messenger.
  5. I will ONLY interact with comments that stick on topic in this thread. I can only juggle so many conversations at once and if this goes will I promise to do more ‘focus fire’ threads on different topics. (I know you want to know more about new character creation, orbs, transfers, etc. I cannot shed any new light on any of these topics as of now. I’m sorry.)

QUESTION: What would interest you enough in wanting to play on the PTR?

Okay, that’s fair. And honestly why I haven’t yet… only enough time for one account.

Maybe my question to you is more, why do you feel like it’s a waste?

4 months ago - Shadow_Fox - Direct link

That’s totally fair. Thanks for your answer!

What sort of pvp content did you have in mind?

4 months ago - Shadow_Fox - Direct link

This is a GREAT idea and hugely helpful, thank you!

4 months ago - Shadow_Fox - Direct link

I can add that to my list, thanks!

4 months ago - Shadow_Fox - Direct link

Thank you! I appreciate it and I super appreciate your reply… I see exactly what you’re saying and I can’t help but feel the same way.

Do you think if there was SOMETHING you’d earn for doing them, do you think that might incentivize you to try it? And then if so, what? Hmm… something to add to my list!

I read your post, thank you. Arenas and different numbers of pvping is clearly heard and something the devs are aware of.

4 months ago - Shadow_Fox - Direct link

Ah okay, that makes sense. If you want to be part of the process you want to BE part of the process. I think the devs are always hesitant, if these forums are anything to go by… how strongly some people feel about their thoughts on different aspects of the game.

I appreciate this answer, it’s well thought out even if you feel like you didn’t think you could answer. Knowing that nothing or little to nothing can entice people to play is still great feedback. And your example of how eager you were about the void guantlet is something to take note of. Thank you!

I completely agree, 100%. That was something we were chatting about earlier too, incentives. Who doesn’t love a free title or skin or pot of dye.

4 months ago - Shadow_Fox - Direct link

This is great feedback! Thank you!! Maybe the devs can better communicate why certain things arn’t in there.

I can also mention the idea about direction. We all love accomplishing goals, would be fun… like find 5 bugs! Haha I don’t know, but I’ll add the idea, thank you!

4 months ago - Shadow_Fox - Direct link

Of course! Thank you for the answer! Maybe some sort of tracking system or maybe better tools?

Not sure if that would pertain to PTR but I completely understand what you mean. My husband hates tanking because of this. But more so, you’d like to test different mechanics that aren’t promised to go into the game?

4 months ago - Shadow_Fox - Direct link

That’s totally fair feedback and the team is working hard on fixing this. We recently gathered a TON of information and questions from the PTR forums and brought it to the devs. Granted not ALL feedback is what the team is looking for, but we’re totally on the same page here. Hence why I’m starting to ask more and take more notes! :smiley:

4 months ago - Shadow_Fox - Direct link

Yes, but would that convince you to play on the PTR or just something you’d like to see?

4 months ago - Shadow_Fox - Direct link

Hahahaha fair!! I appreciate it! I think I was just more thinking out loud too but curious if you had strong thoughts about it. Thank you!

4 months ago - Shadow_Fox - Direct link

Definitely all great points, the arena is brought up alot.

Thank you!!

4 months ago - Shadow_Fox - Direct link

Hahaha okay okay, that’s fair. I do get SO STRESSED when I only have like 2 pots of special dye… like how does one decide when to use it?!

4 months ago - Shadow_Fox - Direct link

This is great feedback!! Thank you for listing it out and explaining. I know the azoth thing was talked about alot, so great to see it brought up again.

Sadly I don’t think it would work out as well as you’d like if the community votes on things. If the forums give you any idea, players can be very strong with some of their ideas, especially when they start to have some ownership on it. I think it’s great to find a perfect balance of feedback from both sides and then overall balance into the game. As keep in mind… not all who play this game, speak on the forums.

4 months ago - Shadow_Fox - Direct link

We do listen, I promise, and we’re about to listen even more. The team is growing and more focused than ever. The theme for this upcoming push is bots, bugs and battlestar galatica… no, sorry, I’m kidding, I couldn’t help it haha. Bots, bugs and balance is the name of the game with this next big push. It’s not that we don’t WANT to fix stuff, but either time or resources makes it difficult and alot of fixes have already gone out. You do absolutely understand the current state of the game.

I personally honestly have NO idea what drives people to play or not play on the PTR. Hence my question because when the devs brought it up last week it got me thinking. Sure, I can guess or assume but that doesn’t accomplish anything… so, figured I’d just ask! Thankfully everyone has been super helpful so far, including yourself! Thanks!

4 months ago - Shadow_Fox - Direct link

Oooooh okay, that makes sense and is a good idea, I’ll bring it up. Thanks!!

4 months ago - Shadow_Fox - Direct link

This is very helpful, thank you!

4 months ago - Shadow_Fox - Direct link

I’ll check them out, thanks!!

And I agree, the forums or something needs to be reworked but I’d like to experience everything as it is to see what would really work and not work.

Thank you for this, this is super helpful and honest.
