I think this is at the crux of the issue with Ask Cryptics. Because it is a propaganda tool, you (Cryptic) want everything in it to be good stuff only. Sometimes that means saying stuff will come "soon", or talking about features that you know people will like, or being vague enough that people can't get angry. But really,
you can't be afraid to make people angry
. If saying that there will be no further development of PvP (for example) will piss people off, that's that. Better to let people know rather than not giving them straight answers, or telling them "it's on our radar" for years.
Perhaps some insight as to how marketing works would help as well. I've seen it written sometimes that "marketing" determines what you can say and when you can say it. Who is marketing? Why do they make the decisions that they do?
