# 1 Cryptic Survey
02-24-2010, 01:47 AM
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.

It's not perfect, but it's a start!

yeah it was a little strange that you could choose 'other' for some questions with no way to actually say what that other is.

i gave my most honest answers and i think the survey is a great way to go seems they are wanting to listen to the gamers and the fans more of this less of this.

however they should have asked in what order do you want to see things added to the game then they would have a better starting place to work from...

but all round great idea though

I think everyone did lol.

And I hope this isn't the last survey they do. They should make it a regular thing.

I guess they limited the answers to ensure that:

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...

I considered this, but really - this is unrealistic, so I checked 3 or 4 of the ones I think should have priority.

same, i figure checking them all is useless, they'll just cut those out and go by how different the actual amounts are for priority.

They should decide for themselves what takes priority. If you wanted to see all features, you should tick all the boxes. I dont mind what order they arrive in, just that they do.
