Just had an email from Cryptic with a link a link to the survey page.
I'm glad they have a survey, and I hope people fill it out honestly, but did anyone else find it a bit... limiting? I mean, the questions asking about what else we would like to see etc only allowed one answer in some cases, and to be honest I could have reeled of a list as long as my arm.
I think it's great they've implemented a survey, but I can't help but feel it's a slightly wasted opportunity for them to get some real answers from people.
What did everyone else think? Have you filled it in? I'd recommend it, as it doesn't take long and you get 240 Cryptic points for your trouble.
a) it was something they could actually deliver and not something that would require an engine rewrite
b) they limited what you could pick from a list of things they could achieve in a reasonable timeframe
c) they picked a small sample of things so they understand what the majority of players would like, not just the minority that actually posts on forums. The Devs know what the forum posters want, the c-store bribe is to ensure they capture a more realistic section of the population.
d) if you limit the options on a survey to the ones you can achieve, it will not cause you a nasty surprise later when your boss wants to know why you haven't implemented the overwhelming request from the player-base...
