Should players know the future of the game in advance?

Recommended Posts

I don't know if this post should be in "Suggestions", after all, it is a suggestion for the company, and not for the game.

 

I suggest that instead of AIGRIND revealing new content* 1 week before, it should reveal 1 month before.

(Except events and new maps, as it takes a lot of work to draw an entire map and even more work to rethink an entire event that lasts more than a month)

 

Example: Ok. You reveal new skills to every class. But players of a specific class don't like their skill, but you can't do anything really big since the update will be released in some days. You can only rework it a little (like Charmer and Rogue skill)

 

And if you had one month to change the skill?

 

  1. One month before the update, the additions and changes are presented in the forum. The players will be able to say what they think about the new content and even give some ideas (Example: A fish instead of a duck in the LV 32 Cloth set skill)
  2. The test server will be open for 4 days, just to get an idea of how things will be.
  3. If a skill is unnecessary for a class, make a post at the forum asking what the class needs at the moment (Example: Warlock needs a defensive skill, Rogue needs a mobility skill... and DK needs a buff at Secret Reserves).
  4. After that, AIGRIND can rework it, buff/nerf it, and completely change it.
  5. If necessary, open the test server again for more 4 days.
  6. The last test server will be opened 4 days before the update, so the players will see how it changed and if it's good.

 

This is not just for skills, but for new armor, weapons, accessories, etc.

 

    And the developers could give a little spoiler from time to time so we know what’s being planned for the game, so we don’t have a surprise at the end (after all, it can be a good or bad surprise), because the players make Suggestions about the game without even knowing what the devs are planning (or what they're already doing) for the game.

 

For example: What's the sense of making a suggestion of a improvement at Iselnort when the developers are already working at a new map?

Isnt this literally what the test server is for, they have everything coded but cosmetic changes and stat changes are most likely easiest to implement within short timespan

That's what the post says. If they increased the time of tests, they could change more things than animations or stats from the skill. They could literally think a new skill to replace it.

And it would help too much.

they would most likely receive too many suggestions for both buffs and nerfs and russian community would have different suggestions from international community not mentioning chinese, brazilian and all others

I know. So they could make a simple poll in both International and Russian, example:

"What do you think about the new skill?

Good

Bad

It's ok"

And probably a big part of the answers would say exactly what's wrong with the skill or if the class doesn't need something like that.
