Good initiative +rep

One question I have is did you weight the responses based on 1st - 5th choice or just give a straight count?

Yes it is incomplete, i will now do the next 50 posts..

And yes, it is merely a count. Too much time? If the list means those problems will get fixed.. then I don't mind spending the time.

Hope Marco will publish their own list, condensed from this one, with what they think is the most important things to fix first.

Nice post, Spawn.

You have to ask yourself how many of the respondents do more than use auction and chat, eh? :rolleyes: I suspect the EF population is more skewed toward traders and socialites than the actual player base of EU.

Thanks for starting this, Spawn. Just like the thread on questions for the interview where people posted all kinds of stuff that couldn't actually be asked, that frustrations thread has become a soaring flight of fancy rather than a concise list of issues: an abridgment was necessary.

he could have just said 'your comments will be passed onto the development team'.

The new EU has been 2 years in development and all we're getting is a graphics update? some of these must have been fixed in that time without them necessarily knowing they have.

Perhaps. I don't know the first thing about programming. What I was refering to was him mentioning to not say, "loot sucks." They are aware that most think loot sucks, and I really think the distribution is off. I went on a 100 probe mining run, and, I'm not exaggerating, I got 90% NRF. It broke down to, 3 melchi, 2 alice, 1 oil, and 3 typho, and 1 sweetstuff. It was mostly II and III and i had a IX melchi.

As a noob miner, my desire to go out and mine again is low, and I definitly wouldn't use an amp, since, if I understand correctly, that only increases the size of the find, not the chance of finding one.

Marco and friends have no idea, and this is some that we already know.
Now finally (who know why........) they decide to ask our opinion.... and this is very good.

Now, why u don t let them analyze and collect and sort all our wishes? it s possible that we pay to play (since years), we give them suggestions (since years) and they do really nothing????

Guys there is some one that will payed for this, don t steal his work.

You're doing a fabulous job with this compilation but... may I remind you that MA is actually paying their employees for that very same job? :silly2:

Is this your way to tell MA to stop using money for such futile endeavors? :laugh:

Keep going, Spawn!

It would be great to return to this thread in 12 months and see how many of the Top 50 frustrations have been fixed - or not fixed with some kind of plausable MA explanation why not.

Nice job Spawn,

sadly it would be unneeded in case MA would have had read the support requests made over the last years - since most of these annoyances have been reported as defects reports or feature requests to support.

Yes, but this time Marco actually asked for it. And he's getting it on a golden platter. Once the list is complete there can be no arguing anymore which frustrations/bugs/suggestions need addressing first. I truely believe something will be done with what we all put together. Marco has shown since planet calypso was born, that he's serious about improving the planet.
And if nothing happens.. all players can simply copy/paste the list to support.. :D

143 posts done.. going to bed now.

If anyone wants to help out.. the list is a google spreadsheet, pm me if you want to have it shared (only if you want to help out)
