I'll be covering DWO, MT and to an extent, EE and other new games today.
I'm pleasantly appeased by Aeria's services since the last feedback thread.
MT has new content, and the staff has done an excellent job informing people of it, along with bugs that came with it.
DWO also gained new content, but unlike MT, the DWO staff seems to have left it for the players to discover. Although perhaps its a nice gesture (allows players to be pleasantly surprised), but the majority find it annoying. It outlines the DWO Staff ignorance when it could really be avoided with Patch Notes.
Now here's something very personal. Before I begin, I would like to acknowledge that the DWO staff can't control how the DWO community communicates, but you could at least encourage them to be more... organised...
I'll be doing a comparison between MT forums
and DWO forums
General Discussion: You can clearly see that its mainly... well, general discussion in MT forums. However, compared to DWO's General Discussion, you can find all sorts of things: Fan Art, Guides for the Game, Events (Player and Official), Promotions, Suggestions e.t.c. where as in MT, there's only the rare question pertaining the game. I mean, why even have the other forums if everything goes here?
Official Events and Promotions: In MT, all current events and promotions are set to announcements. Events/Promotions that are no longer running, but are still being paid out, are then turned to Sticky threads. Ones that don't have any use anymore, goes to Archive: Events and Archive: Promotions respectively. Now in DWO, the Official Events and Promotion threads are barely used at all. Old irrelevant events and promotions are stayed as Announcements, which mislead veteran AGE forum users. A lot. At the very least, rename it to Archive: Events and Archive: Promotions respectively.
General Gameplay: Please, PLEASE encourage the DWO players to use this forum for any gameplay related questions/guides. Its bloody inconvenient for people who've used AGE forums before TRYING to get some help. Its an extra 5 clicks you know!
Same goes with EE. I've noticed its as disorganized as DWO's.
I'm just asking you to encourage the community to be a bit more organized... is that too much to ask for? Just move threads to the correct section or something, that ought to teach them.
