Yes... I think the message is pretty clear. TY eric for updating everyone.
You know folks have brought this up a couple times before.
WHY DON'T you SURVEY the community before doing things? I mean Forums are great for hearing about things AFTER you deploy them, but that's a waste of time/money and potentially upset's customers if nobody wanted.
I think a weekly SURVEY of some sort via mail might be worth the trouble to test the waters on ideas. Make it worth everyone's while and throw in say 5cc's for the trouble each survey completed (Once per week or month).
Something in game might be better. Aion did (maybe still does). Sent out survey's often (unfortunately most were, how is the game not future content related) and when you finished it you got a few XP boosts I think (the gift was a nice little gift)
