I can't speak for settlement leaders, especially as I am not really one myself, but what I imagine is that they all already know what the Paizo response will be.

"We would love to do that now. We are planning to do that in some fashion in the future. Right now we are on a tight and locked schedule that is absorbing more time than we have already."

Not sure whether to be happy or sad that I've become so predictable, but that's pretty dead on. It has admittedly been quite a while since we did anything along these lines, so hopefully we can find a time to do one sooner rather than later, but no promises at this point.
Well don't be sad. It is a pretty logical and straightforward answer and only predictable because of the nature of this Roadmap work. smile

Rooting for ranged IS CHANGED to 2sec of speed reduced 50%. Running shot is exempt from that.

@BL,

Speaking of these forums not having the ability to send PMs, I would like to let you know that if I HAD THE CHANCE to directly PM each settlement leader about this topic and engage in an "off forum" conversation first, that would have been my first choice of action. smile

Then I could have made my case directly to the settlement leaders and gauged interest and participation numbers.

Not having that option, I had to resort to the general forums to try to catch the attention of 30 (or so) different settlement leaders.

I can't speak for settlement leaders, especially as I am not really one myself, but what I imagine is that they all already know what the Paizo response will be.

"We would love to do that now. We are planning to do that in some fashion in the future. Right now we are on a tight and locked schedule that is absorbing more time than we have already."

Which is essentially true and a decision made above our heads. Don't think that there hasn't been lots of back and forth about the exact order outlined in the Roadmap, because there definitely has. Personally I am better writing my thoughts and opinions than I am at speaking them. Even if I could speak them as clearly as I might be able to write them the only way to give them more Effect Power would be to have to raise my voice. I am not willing to do that for a game.

Yet, as I have written above, I am fine with you trying to organize a big voice chat meeting. Honestly I will be impressed if it makes a real difference and will praise you if it does.

As for emailing them, Bob particularly, is good at responding to requests with a yes or no but most importantly some "why" mixed in. I had no idea that you had already done that.

PM Bob or Lisa.

Wow BL, could you have tried a bit harder to insult me? I would have preferred a straight up "shut up and take your conversation private as I think its a waste a time and I don't want to read about it" instead of telling me to contact the developers privately.

I have had conversations with you directly so I seriously doubt you meant your comments that way, it but sure came across like that to me! smile (Before you edited the post and added a smiley face; still the first response was not exactly a friendly one)

1- I know how to contact the games developers besides the forums, and I have previously contact GW on this request; I don't publish their private response without prior permission.

2- I did my research before I posted this thread, and I did not see anyone in the last two years requesting a meeting or laying out a case of why one is necessary. I also recall participating in a few of these meetings to be of value, and I imagine so did GW as the did it more than once.

3- There is a reason I posted in the "General Public Forum" and not by a private communication.

4- There is also a reason that GW has not had an OC meeting in the last two years. There is also a complete lack of interest expressed by settlement leaders on the forums for another one. I disagree with that "I couldn't care less/its completely pointless" prevailing attitude.

5- I am not forcing you to read or participate in this thread; if you don't like it don't respond. If you feel that OC meetings are pointless, feel free to advocate for the Keepside Chats to be renewed, no one else seems to care about the lack of direct verbal communications with the game developers but me it seems. I also don't see anyone brining up the fact that Keepside Chats haven't been done since April of 2016, why is no one concerned about that or working to bring it back? For those players "screaming" that the OC is "elitest" and "pointless" why are they not advocating for a general public meeting instead?
I think that you are misunderstanding me, Giorgio and I apologize for that. It's a dig at PfO because you can't PM Bob or Lisa and you very well should be able to easily do that through the game itself.

Again, I am sorry that I did not communicate that very well. smile

You are a Troll
Maybe making every new account a DT account would give new players more incentive to stick it out? Getting to try different things on two different toons both earning XP would go a long way to keeping people long enough to get pulled into a settlement and more deeply connected.

0/ <— Gots my vote. smile Especially as an easy way to add value to a subscription and double the things that a player can really explore in a short period of time.

My guess is that new players will have to receive bargains that will make me and some other vets feel ripped off. I already feel ripped off for the $100 starting cost on each of my accounts after they allowed players to simply subscribe with no starting cost.

You believe that starting the entire game over after almost 3 years of progress might be a good idea but would feel ripped off if new players were to have an extra character earning xp?

That isn't an accurate portrayal of my view.

a) I already feel ripped off for the reason I listed: "box cost".

b) I didn't say starting over is a good idea, I am just skeptical that game consumers want to start behind as our serfs. It would be fairer to say that I feel the smart move would have been to never offer to let us keep xp into Open Release. However, such promises are a big part of why I (and many of us?) spent so much money.

c) a free DT is unlikely to be enough to lure people into starting years behind, thus my guess that they will have to offer enough OTHER bargains that it will make me feel ripped off, before they can acquire enough players to make the game sustainable.

d) since none of my accounts is a DT, should I get free DTs, too?
My apologies for getting your meaning wrong. Thanks for clarifying.

d) absolutely!

You do, though, feel like our headstart will be a critical handicap for attracting new players. Do you think that wil happen to Albion Online? in a year?

I thought that Freehold husks had "owner access only" funki majic?

The husk is marked as belonging to the owner of the Freehold, but as with other husks, that just means the owner is the only one who can take everything out of the husk quickly. Everyone else has to run a short gathering animation and can only grab 5 encumbrance worth of items (1 item minimum) from a single stack each time.
Sweet! No the same but I remember the fun of stumbling across a decayed player Large House in UO. Was pretty fun, lootz for free and all that…

PM Bob or Lisa.

oops. Email Bob or Lisa. smile

Edit: Just so that I am not a total bastard, a Voip meeting could do wonders for PfO Discord registration.
