For DWO, imo, has had one of the best months ever in terms of Aeria's interaction with the game.
-Massive update containing a lot of gears, like 3-4 gear SETS compared to the usual 2 gear PIECES. And not just one update , but TWO, in the same month.
- GM HighCalibur's communication with the community. For a long time in DWO, we've felt like GMs just don't care or wanted to know us. Now HC is interacting with community probably more than OneShot did. Also his "Promo suggestion" thread is a great addition, Aeria is taking in consideration from the community, which is what we've wanted for a long time.
-Return of Showdowns. after so many months, we finally get Showdowns back, and not just a usual weekend lot either.....
-...Week long events. It started with Survival mode, playing all week long, some people didnt really like it, and even I, a player who loves SM, was eventually get bored of aswell becuase after a while, it does get boring. After that, with the return of Showdowns, we got a Week long sesion of them. Sure they started a little bumpy with incorrect times, but HC quickly fixed this issue, and it only effected 1 day out of the 7. My next point is also about Showdowns..
-Less Showdown Rooms!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you. For a long time now, many players have requested aeria to have less showdown rooms, because people are farming rooms, and ruining the 12v12 experience for players who actually want to play Showdown properly. There are now half as many rooms now as their where before, which maybe, could be lessened a bit more because their are a few farm rooms. Overall though, I am very pleased with this decision, and if anyone sends you a ticket Aeria, complaining their aint enough Showdown rooms, Ignore Them!!!! they're just QQing because they cant farm, and have to play the game how it was meant to be played.
With all these good point, I wish to give this monthly rating a 5. However, their was a few problems aswell.
-The main one, Surprise Campaigns =0=.
I thought this was behind us, Aeria fixed this problem before, but now it happened again, twice. This week however, their hasnt been any surprise CPs, so Im hoping the problem has been fixed.
-Bugged gears. During the 1st update this month, their was a female gear that when a player aquired the gear, they would crash. And they couldnt get passed it either, because when they try to log in again, they get brought back to the battle report and face the gear again, which would crash them again. This problem was fixed a few days later though, so no real complaint here.
Their are probably a few other minor issues, but theyve all been/being taken care of.
This month has been a good month for DWO, and I hope it continues + gets better.
I give a 4 this month, hopefully a 5 next month.
