These are the only things to cause cryptic to change their minds about what they have planned for the game.
If cryptic truely listened to the playerbase most controversial things would never hit the live game since in the past all the major concerns are always discovered and discussed in great deal (and in many cases a valid alternative is discussed as well), But cryptic never listen to us, they think they know best and usually it backfires on them causing massive fan backlash and some backpedaling by them resulting in more loss of player goodwill towards them...
You would think they would learn and listen to us more
that is only if its not in a game called champions online.
sto has a huge dev team which is getting bigger, co team is at best guess much more smaller.
