Poll: Guild Wars Changes/Improvements - Suggestions

Regarding Guild Wars Change Suggestions - Official Thread

Notice: These are core concepts, if you would like a modification of any of listed concepts please vote on it and specify your preferences in the comments! I kept the concepts “generalised” to see how many people agree to this sort of concept in general (otherwise the votes would spread too much!)

Notice2: “Custom rating” :1234: is similiar to a “team score/team power” but calculated in a different way described in corresponding suggestion entry - applies to gw defense team only. It does not change the original “team score/team power” of the defense team, just introduces another (new) variable. Does not equal to gw points. GW points are the points earned in gw fights and showed in gw ranking.

Feel free to vote on everything you like! Bringing @Saltypatra attention… Cheers! :grin:

Notice3: This poll is meant to give the devs, and ourselves the idea what we and others really want the most.
Bears no promises or obligations to developers whatsoever

Poll made with a BIG help from @turintuor, thank you!

Everyone concerned about “:100: Allow a guild with LESS THEN 30 MEMBERS fighting in gw - to not suffer in the gw ranking progression” please make sure to vote here too:

Poll: How many members should HAVE TO fight in Guild Wars?

edit: the “-&gt” was suppose to be an arrow → cant edit it anymore

We already have a 200+ post thread, so is another really necessary? And this poll is too broad to be useful, and doesn’t have options for other positions on the same issue. If I don’t vote for “release GW troops into chests immediately” for example, does that mean I don’t care about the issue, or that I strongly feel that GW troops should stay special/exclusive, or just that the specific wording doesn’t match the persons opinion. Don’t see this thread going anywhere useful, it’s just going to regurgitate the other thread with unnecessary duplication :frowning:

How long will these polls be open?

i doubt ill ever close it :stuck_out_tongue: the question is for how long devs will consider any suggestion to guild war changes before they make gw final :stuck_out_tongue:

in this case if you want them anyhow more obtainable , or faster obtainable, then its current way (exclusive to guild wars until another set of gw troops is released - then go to guild chest) then you should vote on it?

and sorry i didnt specify it more broad, tiried my best, and no i dont think i should have posted a poll in the middle of official thread - it would get completely lost in there

Yes it is. As you said on the initial topic:

I believe that most of the players would not read these 300+ posts and just post their suggestions which mostly have already been posted 3 times…

The poll is here just to catch a somewhat popularity of the suggestions made by the community. You can tick the suggestions that you think are good ones :wink: .

It would mean that you don’t care about this suggestion being implemented. Nothing more. There is no issue only suggestion. And the wording is more or less what the initial suggestion was, coming from @Annaerith’s great work to summarize 300+ posts.

I think this is a great summary done by @Annaerith, and is really valuable to see a bunch of the ideas at a glance, kudos for doing so much work. However, I don’t believe the way it is structured as a poll can provide a reasonable view of peoples opinions. It simply tries to cover too many items with a minimal amount of detail, which really limits it’s usefulness. But if others see a benefit to this, great, have fun :wink:

I appreciate the work you put into trying to sort through that mess on the other thread :smile:

Excellent work, Anna! :smiley:

That’s a great summary of the suggestions, which as stated, most of us won’t read through. I agree with @beanie42 beanie42, that there is some distinction missing between don’t care/don’t want, but if some suggestions reach 30-40% of votes, maybe they should be at least considered. But there are some suggestions, which have very small impact on the game, I guess those will reach mostly “don’t care” votes, while there could be nice ideas/intentions behind them.

Also I didn’t vote on the third poll. I’m all for some ideas to reduce the meta-defenses but I think it’s much too complicated, to think about the implications of some of these concrete suggestions and to prefer one over another.

Ping for more votes, i gues after the official thread ppl dont have much to comment…

I found the poll useful for consolidating a super-long thread and revisiting the ideas. Well done @Annaerith

I agree with others voicing their support for this consolidation of ideas. Excellent job @Annaerith, I wish there was a point system where users could reward each other for posts well done as you certainly deserve something for this.
