This is why we are being cautious about releasing information on Ranked Warzones until things are a bit more locked down. We don't want to burn you guys a second time until our information is more concrete! Especially knowing that Ranked Warzones is a sensitive topic.

I can reassure you that we are in development on Ranked Warzones and as soon as we have information to share, you will have it!

This degree of frankness is very refreshing. I might suggest that releasing a few details about where you stand in the development process on the future of ranked warzones would be a great way to test the new pact you have with the players. You know, the one where you give us updates that are somewhat fuzzy and subject to change, and we don't freak out when things get pushed back.

Just so you "can look into it" for another 6 months!
Dude, just change servers, that is what everyone else on APAC has done. Stop QQ and just make it happen already. Listening to you bellyache every day is annoying.

Hi Claprica,

Before I respond to your question, let me say that I like the allusion in yours! o/''\o

There are so very many "2/3rds of a stoplight jokes" out there regarding my name. >.< I actually remember the first time a "red" comment was made to me: one of my friends in the second grade told me that their mom asked if I had red hair. I was confused, and then she told me I'd be a stoplight.

One of QA guys in the office calls me "Colors", too. I happen to like it.

Yeah, we all know PVPers and PVEers usually cry the loudest, but socializers and roleplayers have had to take a back seat and waited patiently for way too long. It's time they get some love.
I have no issues with something like the above getting some much deserved attention, as I do understand there are several aspects of gameplay that synergize with this game. I know this has been a hot topic for quite some time, and would be fine if the Development team got to work on it. I won't debate timetables compared to other gameplay aspects, but I do agree this is something that is needed IG for your aspect that has been a popular request. Hopefully everyones aspect gets the attention it needs soon.

Wow dude... You really need to wait for the rest of your team before you reply to 1 message that's directed at you. It's pretty much a slap in the face to everyone else. The way I see this comment is... 'We are going to ignore people who are complaining about their problems with the game' so you just go and answer the joke question that means nothing. What if Claprica also asked 'what is happening with the APAC servers?' Would you just ignore his post completely?

I would like to ask for more information on what is happening with the APAC server populations? All we get is that you are 'aware' of it. We would really appreciate a more open discussion on the subject. What options are you considering, what are the draw backs as you see them, what kind of time frame are we looking at for a solution?

All we want is to be kept in the loop.
Any chance of a response to my question?

Hey Obirayy,

As a note, Amber meant no offense by her post so please do not take it that way. One of my goals with the community team is to have us be more human and less robotic to all of you. Sometimes, that means that we are going to make posts that aren't 100% serious and are even going to try to joke around with the community. This is something I honestly thought the community would want from us, maybe I was mistaken.

Since last week when our transitions happened we have made a very distinct effort to respond to almost all of the current, major pending issues in the community. In some cases, I know those answers haven't always been exactly what people are looking for (like APAC) but at the least we could reconfirm that we know there is an issue and are trying to resolve it. I would even ask that you take a look at the dev tracker to see things we have responded to over the past week, we have covered quite a bit

So again, apologies if you felt her post was offensive or a "slap in the face", our intent is to be actual people to all of you. Not just robots who post in yellow.

I also implore that if you know of a major issue, something that we haven't addressed in some way, that you bring it to our attention. You can even PM me about it, we aren't trying to ignore anyone.

You are not mistaken, but there will always be that type of person who thinks any communication not on an issue they directly care about is a waste of space. Those people are wrong, and should be told so, often and clearly.

I'm loving the increased personal interaction and the touching base on questions.

In short, Eric meant this.

I have altered the sandwich. Pray I do not alter it any further.
