Sounds good Eric, and good luck and congratulations with your new role. You may find a jaded reception for a while due to past yellow committments that were similar. From your new team thread on the general page it sounds like you all don't have any less work but less folks to do it with, so any increases in communication you can bring to the PVP page would be very appreciated.

If you mean it and actually do this then that's huge.

Austin posted in a smash thread on the PTS that they've done a lot of work on it. It's good to know that all the smash threads haven't been falling on deaf ears, but it would be a lot less frustrating to get acknowledgement of an issue when it's a obviously a huge concern.

Most of us understand that some issues require careful some careful balancing acts, but the total silence from BW in the past regarding most issues has been a source of frustration.

Of course when you post something, and then the replies are "you guys don't seem to understand the problem" then you need to, you know, respond back. Dialogue can be a wonderful thing.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

I hope you're able to accomplish this Eric You're not the first to say they'd post more, but you're one guy I trust to make a greater effort at it than past people had.

Just wanted to chime in to say to Mr. Musco that I look forward to reading his posts.
PvE theorycrafting has really loosened their standards.

We are still here! The Combat and PvP devs have been more focused on the PTS forum feedback than the PvP forums atm since we just launched 2.0 on PTS so the gettin' is good for hot feedback. That being said I still have this forum open in a tab and F5ing it dozens of times throughout the day and watching some very interesting threads right now. But as I said in one of my earlier posts in this very forum...

Keep up the great discussions! Cheers!

Yeah, the moderation here is abysmally weak. E.g. the "how resolve works" thread is horribly polluted with off topic QQ comments. People should be allowed to QQ about how they hate resolve but not in a valuable mechanics thread. An adequate moderation system would curate these threads. The current moderation system does not.

The obvious solution (that many other forums have implemented) is having volunteer moderators. I, for one, would be happy to do some thread curation moderating. I'd leave the banning and deleting to the BW employee mods as that topic is a nasty can of worms. Volunteer mods could recommend actions to BW mods who could then review and approve (or not approve) the action.

Also, we should have a button for reporting off topic posts that need to be moved to a containment thread.

Very happy to see more yellow posts around. I'm really rooting for this game, even though it's not the sandbox I wanted, it's got the flavour I love. Your warzone play has much potential, the storylines are the Bioware kind (not too shabby, not too shabby at all) You might have overshot the spending budget on voiceacting though since some things feel unfinished and alot of stuff gets done on the fly.

This is a place to start for mods of the forums. most stickied posts are outdated, messy and not at all correct anymore.
There's correct stuff floating around several pages back with minimal replies that might serve as replacements or new ones could be made when 2.0 hits. Make it a clean slate ingame and on forums (concerning earlier communication blackouts heh)

Don't think it captured your quote in your post. Visibility is your friend, yellow posts can be effective as a reminder for people that you listen, take notes and work hard on giving us a product we enjoy playing. Sometimes forums can become a maelstrom of thoughts, ideas and random venting because the people in the community don't know which direction they could go with all their creativity and energy and actually be productive and helpful in their endeavour to help you guys make a better game.

Weekly or monthly brainstorm thread? Give people a topic and let the thread be the focal point for input?
