    I'm curious if EA/Mythic staff requested this forum be created, or if Stratics staff created the forum on their own after FOF was cancelled?

    I cant remember who asked who to start it! But I do know they had direct input as to how it was set up!
     
  3. Wasn't this supposed to replace the Five On Friday question and answer? It's been almost two weeks since any information in that forum, and not much before that. At least with the FOF we got 5 questions a week answered...

    I think they quit doing the FOF because the Devs couldn't come up with any clever FOF titles any more.

    Not sure what the answer is, but I think its a combination of things
    1 maybe they are really pushing this next publish and just have not had time!

    2 maybe its just one of those things that has priority just very low on the list ( i know in my work I had things that people wanted done but i had other things that just came first)

    3 maybe they just plain forgot us

    4 and maybe they are working on a new plan for communication like another fof or something like it!

    just some ideas but I agree its time for at least a little word on whats going on!

    FoF was always better, now they only answer the dumb questions that only the person(s) that asked them want to know. This is only an MMO afterall, we don't need to know anything of importance rolleyes:.

    I don't know, occasionally they seem to skirt some of the questions, but I appreciate that they have to be careful what they say sometimes.

    I'm quite liking that many of them are prepared to engage with forum users in various post topics. When they post in forum topics, that to me is more of a two-way thing. It shows that they're taking an interest in our ramblings.

    We may not always like what they have to say, or agree with their thoughts, but then as forum users, people often agree and disagree anyway. At least they seem prepared to dip their toes in the water... and boy is the water hot here sometimes ;)

    Riiiight.

    They have dropped the ball. Again. As always. You know, I hate that they always prove us right and then act stunned when we call them out on it.

    With no community coordinator, EA/M is not communicating like they used to. I understand they have their plates full now, but this "Ask the Devs" is fail.
    Bring back Five On Friday. At least I had something to look forward to.
