well they started that podcast crap so hopefully they use that and the weekly questions to talk about real problems and not ppl saying stuff like "Jedis with red lightsabers is not canon uggggggggg change it"

Precisely.

If handled correctly, this could be an opportunity to form strong and lasting bonds with the community. This is something that is sorely lacking currently.

I understand the risks and the difficulties, particularly with such a polarized and opinionated community, however, in my humble and honest opinion, the only thing worse would be to remain silent.
Stop exploding you cowards!

All we've been told about server transfers is that they're coming.
  • We haven't been told when, other than the vague 'summer-time' response.
  • We haven't been told what they'll entail. Are these transfers going to occur like:
    High Pop ~> Lower Pop
    Lower Pop ~> Standard Pop
    Low Pop & High Pop ~> Standard Pop
    All Pop ~> All Pop
  • We haven't been told if there are any special requirements that are necessary for customers to be eligible for free transfers.

If I had booked a flight with Ryan Air, and they were rearranging my flight, I'd expect, as a paying customer, to be given answers to any and all questions I wanted to ask. I would also not expect their response to be, effectively, "go somewhere else if you don't like it", as any company that does that is unlikely to last.


Simple admission that there is a HUGE issue would at least be a start. I asked for that two months ago, a simple admission.


Great PR.

OH NO! It must be kept secret. Everything must have a glorious surprise factor. Surprises are what's important, not customer appreciation.

Couldn't agree more.

I think it's becoming very clear that this is BW's first multiplayer game, and I think it's showing when it comes to communication with their online (and paying) community/customers.

It's like picking up the phone to LG, and being told to **** off.

Admission would never happen and especially this early it may make their current subs feel like their owning up but if they admit they messed up it may turn away future subs so its just rly bad for PR

This isn't exactly cracking PR... Nor is losing half a MILLION subscribers in 3 months.

I realise that, but purchasing or merging with a company that developed a game independently, is not developing one yourself. That was the point I was making. The people who make DAO, haven't made MMO's before. That's what I was getting at.
