So i'm not the one saying whats best. The devs said and are currently focusing on fixing bugs and crashes and balance changes for the next week or so. I'm not making it up. And i have not helped them fix bugs but i made a thread suggesting balance changes for Sturgian spearmen. And it got on the " SP Top Feedback & Suggestions" thread. And sure enough they got buffed shortly after. So yes i am helping the game get better. Also i know that they are watching the forums because of that thread i talked about and how i got on there.
That is all well and good, and I'm glad they are checking the forums. I think it's great TW recognized your post as important to development. But some of those things will have to be changed I the future to accommodate core game mechanics.
I responded to everyone but i stopped responding to a few after there was no point. I respond to see if they are worth my time. And you miss my point on suggestions. I am specifically saying to stop suggesting NEW FEATURES while suggestion balance changes and such should be done more. I am not suggesting any new features.
I get your point. Honestly, I really do. But when it comes down to it, the devs are going to focus on what they want to put in the game next. Whether that's bug fixes, balancing, optimization, or core game mechanics, they're going to do what they're going to do. If new suggestions are keeping them from fixing the game, then they have some serious priority issues and there is little hope for the game becoming whole. To be successful, they need to vary what they fix issue by issue. This week could be bugs, next week could be balancing, the week after that could be a combo of several issues. All I'm saying is it sounds like you're implying that they can't get any work done because people are providing suggestions of what they think would be good to add to the game. Whether or not that aligns with what TW has in mind atm, that is for the devs to decide.
It's called "Feedback & Suggestions" not feedback and feedback. Neither does it say feedback to the devs or anything specific like that. I am giving feedback and a suggestion to the community. No, i won't tell you to piss off because unlike a couple others you are being respectful and civil. Thats why i stopped responding to them. This is a constrictive thread because it's got a bunch of people talking about an issue of the game right now. Namely the entire game. This thread exploded and brought some attention to priorities and the future of the game. And the devs will see it cuz it's at the top of the sub-forum.
I know it's not up to me on how they function but i'm trying to change what kind of suggestions they get and have a much needed big discussion.
I understand what "Feedback & Suggestions" means. And yes, I also understand that title is not directed in a specific direction, although it is implied. TW being the creators of the forum and the Suggestion Guidelines sticky post. I appreciate you for not telling me to piss off as I try to be respectful and civil in general. I did see that you have stopped responding as frequently, and I can respect that especially when it comes to the more hostile members. I generally do the same. The reason I said "...this isn't actually a constructive post.", is because of the massive pissing match it was turning into. "Yes", "no", "yes", "no" becomes wholly unconstructive when people stop looking at other's opinion as valid. You could be right and TW could be letting themselves become swamped by player suggestions. But as I said above, the game has little hope of ever being a finished product if that is the case.
