  • I applaud @adinosii for making the effort to go through 300+ suggestions to make a list. I have done something like that before in these CDPs and know it is a monumental task, especially when you consider not everyone used the agreed upon formatting and the fact that @adinosii is not an employee. @adinosii stated it was…
  • @nitocris83 @cwhitesidedev#9752 Phase 2 is great and all, but there have been so many suggestions that it will be hard to come up with only 3 suggestion to support in phase 3. Would it be possible for one of you to look over the thread and give us a list of the ideas you think are feasible?
  • @"hadestemplar#9918" You are probably right about an experienced moderator. I was just considering how much moderation is needed and trying to figure out a way to provide summaries when the CDP gets really busy. I don't think it is fair to ask that much of the current moderators but it would be easier for them since they…
  • @"cwhitesidedev#9752" Thanks for the clarification and recap Chris. Sorry if I got off track. I have a question about two of the subtopics / focus items listed. What kind of feedback are you looking for as it pertains to "Expectations of the CDP" and "Choice of Discussion Topics" ? I gave "Choice of Discussion topics" a…
  • Choice of discussion topics (Oremonger#9999 #4) Objective: Explore options and boundaries for choosing topics for discussion. Why: I was not quite sure exactly what you were looking for in this subtopic / focus item so I apologize if I am off base. I know that when I first asked for Polls or a CDP to define topics I did so…
  • @"rainer#8575" Thanks again for all of your contributions to the community. I know what you do takes a lot of time. I'm sitting here waiting on a city building inspector so I have a bit of extra time today. @Spelldazer In reference to CDP3Spelldazer3 #Format #Scoping. I like this idea, but I think this is sorta how Phase 1…
  • Volunteer Moderator for the CDP (@oremonger#9999 #3) Objective: Consider asking for a volunteer moderator from the CDP active members to moderate only the CDP section of the forums. (No I'm not volunteering. :p ) Why: I'm not sure how much time @"rainer#8575" is having to spend on summarizing the CDPs, but I would hate if…
  • @spelldazer I forgot that some members use their phones. IMO that is a good way to read the forums but I would find it difficult to post that way. I wonder how many other CDP members post from their phones. That would be interesting to find out. Android or Apple? Is this forum presented the same way on both OS?
  • Title: Formatting and Multiple forum threads for Phases (@oremonger#9999 #2) Objective: Explore ways to use the existing toolbar and forum infrastructure to facilitate CDP discussion. Proposal: Introduce CDP members to the existing formatting options available on the toolbar. Use the formatting thread already in the CDP…
  • It is not about "validating people's egos" it is about letting people know their feedback has been read and considered. I have heard "Cryptic never listens to feedback" and "They don't even read their own preview forums" several times. I'm sure that someone at Cryptic read it but how can you tell if they didn't have the…
  • Feedback Overview PVP and PVE should be two separate things and changes to the balance of one should not affect the other. Feedback Goal Help foster an environment to where both PVP and PVE can exist without alienating one or the other part of the playerbase.Feedback Functionality Time and again I have seen changes made to…
  • Manipulation of CDPs I agree with almost everything posted so far in this thread. I was one of the people begging for this CDP because I know just how easily it can be manipulated by those who are in organized groups, have a following or are skilled in debate / written discourse. I think I failed to give Chris the credit…
  • Skill in PVP and PVE have absolutely nothing to do with each other. In its current form PVP in this game is more a measure of a players's patience (Que times) and willingness to overlook the flaws and imbalance. Many who would participate decide not to because PVP is totally broken. I hope that the developers eventually…
  • @"cwhitesidedev#9752" on the off chance you didn't see this.
  • @josephskyrim Mind if I ask why you would be out? I'm curious, and I think your answer would be helpful in the CDP on CDP that is coming soon.
  • My top three would be: * Rewards from all content should be directly related to the stats, time and effort required to complete the content. Items should only be bound to account or unbound. * Campaigns - Boons should be worth the time/effort required to obtain them. Time gates should be removed from all but the most…
  • @haden42ee I think you are discounting the systems already in place without considering them fully. There is already a "rewards" system in place for recruiting new players that can easily be used for what you are talking about. If you are not satisfied with that then there are guilds and alliances. Guilds IMO are the best…
  • My top three would be: * Rewards from all content should be directly related to the stats, time and effort required to complete the content. Items should only be bound to account or unbound. * Campaigns - Boons should be worth the time/effort required to obtain them. Time gates should be removed from all but the most…
  • Rewards via crafting (especially Masterwork) After seeing the roadmap today I think I understand a little better how the CDP influences this process. I’ll try to keep this in mind in future posts. (Not so much in this one.) I've read several posts (30) talking about Crafting and how to implement "New" items and rewards…
  • I think I played an MMORPG like that. I ran a guild of dwarves, we crafted, we hired / formed a guild of mages to buff us while crafting, and also hired and equipped many normal players to farm resources for us. It was amazing to see. I agree that it is a better system for crafting and also agree that it would not work in…
  • I have gone back through this CDP looking only for Crafting or Master Crafting ideas and comments. (There are quite a few) I pasted them all into one document so that they are easier for me to follow. I am looking for common ideas from each author and also ideas that make each post unique. I am going to take a day or two…
  • Chris the particular post I am referencing here is not on these forums, thus the "hope" is that you guys would have the time to read it on those forums. In it @thefabricant goes into deeper detail and talks about things that are not yet discussed in a CDP. This comment was in no way a dig at you or your team's efforts…
  • Thank you for taking the time to write this all out. I agree with all of the problems you have identified and also many of the solutions you suggest. I hope the developers are able to take the time to visit Janne's site to read it.
  • Feedback Overview In this post I'll try to wrap up the last three points from my first post.* Late game / end game rewards and progression as it relates to equipment, upgrades and content * Perceived loss of, or negative progression as it relates to Scaling * Progression and rewards in all content as it relates to…
