    Folks, before the holiday season begins, I thought we should try to give the Devs a constructive feedback on what they did in 2012. No insulting please and not too much repeating the discussions we had before.

    I wanna use a 5-point scale for rating the work, going from 1: "not at all convincing" to 5: "absolutely convincing"...

    So, here is my vote - i selectively picked those points that were important to me:

    Dungeon-Revamps: Most of them very nice, some little weaknesses, new loot system is promising, old, abandoned dungeons got revitalized: 4 points!

    Halloween: I didn´t care for the masks, but I really loved the funny fights in the graveyards. I would have appreciated some more action there and tougher enemies as well as other stuff (e.g. unique deco or equippables). But in sum: 3 points!

    Other events: Let´s make a deal - nice, fast and funny! Cool reward! Thumbs up: 5 points!

    Thanksgiving: Not an important event in my country, so I don´t really care about it. But the turkeys were funny and the lil deco-food is nice for decorating houses (esp. kitchens): 4 points!

    The Awakening - first parts: I liked the "sandsifting", even if it was a bit too much grinding. But some of the deco items are really nice (e.g. tapestry). Cool thing: You can imbue and use the staffs. Somwhat boring on the long run, but not bad: 3 points.

    The Awakening - Exodus-fight + the new Exodus peerless: Great, great, great! Nothing more, nothing less. Funny fight, nice design, revitalization of Ilshenar, nice rewards + more group action necessary: 5 points!

    The Awakening - the Cure: Nice idea, but the way the rewards were distributed was not perfect. To me "not at all convincing" but with the replicas now I am sowewhat pleased: 2 points!

    15th Anny-Writing-Contest: Great! Cool rewards, wonderful stories: 5 points!

    Overall Quality of the Publishes: Nice. Many good ideas. Loved some of the changes (e.g. horses now usable by younger accounts): 4 points!

    Other Issues: IDOC-timers: I dunno why, but houses on DF only fall between 0.00 in the night and 05.00 in the early morning. Nice for non-European players, terrible for inhabitants of DF. Please change the timers! It´s an absoultely terrible situation for people who like idocing and have to work or have little children at home: 1 point!

    Other Issues: Devs Communication Efforts: Much better in the last months. Q&A is nice, it seems that constructive criticism finds its way to the the game, new Website is nice, everything very promising: 4 points!

    This is my feedback for 2012 :)

    dungeon revamps: 2(they did fine with shame, then it turned into a dumpster fire with despise and wrong.)
    vet rewards: 3 i like the locker,the new statues are ok, im not a collector anymore, making the ethys more easily attainable was a bonus.
    im throwing a 1 out for cleanup dyes, they dropped the ball, still expecting more from this.
    1 for no taming love, maybe if the thanksgiving turkeys were original size,rideable,and not so powerful, i was also up for some kind of way to make our pets a little customizable
    castle improvement: 3 id like to see keeps and not just castles get improvement,( we have unuseable areas as well)

    i hated the cure quest which was an abominable grind and the idea that the +5 scroll be given on tram. for the rest of it i grade it a success. they added a lot of love to the game. Measanna has been very engaging in her new role, so a 5 for her. hopefully she gets a bit more in the paycheck from santa.

    Judging by his avatar I'd say yes, which makes it laughable that he gave it such a good score. This reads less like a performance review and more like a list of things he liked or didn't like based on his own personal gain. What a joke.

    Anyways... Let sleeping dogs lie and let stupid threads die. We give plenty of feedback to the uo team whether on the forums or with our subscriptions. Trying to make biased report cards is a study in egotism.

    I'm just waiting for the vendor search and what they are planning to do with the gold. I've not seen any updates on these for awhile but I'm sure they are "on the list".
