The devs rarely tip their hand before Friday. We'll just have to wait and see.

Well, they got me hyped, I like it when I get a chance to believe rumblings on the froums produced movement with the high-ups. Not saying the forums had anything to do with it, just that we can believe so ^^

The great thing about small communities like these is that we get to have direct conversations with the developers. That feedback process does have an impact on the game, even if the devs still have executive control over the matter.

Even if our own suggestions aren't used we raised the point, so they can use they're ideas.

I'm sure my own contributions to the discussion were small, but it's nice to find one of the ten internet forums remaining where peoples' post are judged by things other than the post count of the contributor. :p

I guarantee you that there are many more than ten. I've been involved with several small and tight-knit communities in the past. You have to seek them out, but these small little bubbles are more common than you think.

The fundamental issue is size. When a community is small, people tend to know each other and judge based on merits rather than on prestige. The big forums - which of course are the ones you're most likely to stumble upon - are often so large that the community is amorphous. On a small forum like this, we're more "pseudonymous" than anonymous. Even though no one knows who "Darvin" is IRL, you all have a sense of my character; my pseudonym has an identity of its own.

What Darvin said - it was funny/weird couple of times when people assumed the Avatar (boss) was actually named after Avatar (the community member). It's the other way around, and Avatar was late to buy the extra-premium version, so there is no reference to him in the game. And if anyone earned it on the post count / thorough completionism stage it's probably him ^^

I actually figured he was patterned after the in-game boss just because I've never been on a game forum where someone WASN'T named after the end boss, except during one closed beta where who the end boss was was kind of a spoiler and not to be discussed on the forum just in case someone got inside the private forum who shouldn't have, so the boss's name was only used on Skype. I've been referenced in a game or two myself for various reasons, so I know the feeling.

Sometimes people are just disheartening. You pop on a forum after playing a game awhile, make a semi-lengthy post - a few questions about design decisions, a couple of suggestions as someone who's not only an avid gamer, but has worked inside the industry since before he could drive legally, maybe post a couple of tricks you found to ask if they're intended to be that effective or kind of near exploit status, et cetera, and getting a response that is either in essence or word for word "ur an idiot stfu n00b." I mean obviously not someone to take seriously, but if you don't get any kind of intelligent response along with that, it makes you wonder.

Yeah. This is the most open forum I've seen so far. People even say "Welcome to the forums!". You're not judged by skill level or posts, but ideas and suggestions. It's pretty ideal.
