MBJ hinting on VN that the new-super-sekret forums will fix the errors from the old-super-sekret forums:

In all fairness though, we tried to get more of our beta testers to post and as the beta testers here know, the number of actual posters was small. Everyone had access (though most of the beta) but getting them to post, well, that was a bit harder.

This always happens - you've got your harcore posters / armchair designers who post thousands of entries, you've got your casual posters, you've got those who /jranger or /agree to everything, then you have your silent majority who never say anything.

Forums are a pull communications format - the player has to go and make the entry. If he wants feedback, he needs more push methods - sending out an email for people to reply to, or an online survey, or something that continually requests the player takes part.

Ya, beta forum were a joke.  People stop trying to communicate with you when you lock every thread and ban users for trying to communicate with you? No shit.

These official forums are going to fail.  In addition to usual problems, it's going to fail because Mythic is resentful they should even have to talk to players.

At the rate they're going, they won't have that problem for long. I wonder if a forum ban will also be a game ban.

Mythic loves talking to the players that agree with their vision.  This will be the majority of their forums.  Think of it like VN with even less critical thinking.  Wow... that just made my head hurt.

There will be a number of different account “levels” on these forums and players who show that they can contribute to the ongoing improvement of WAR...

Isn't that kind of the job of the devs?

Everyone knows that players know everything about a game and know the best ways to fix it.

I got access to how forum levels count positive and negative.  Shhh! sooper-sekret!  DRILLING AND MANLINESS

+1 Level
-Post that the game 'has a lot of potential' 100x
-Post that the economy is bad, thats why subs are down

+2 Level
-Post that the new expansion will add subs AND put a nice new waxy shine on a car
-Post that Mark 'has a plan' and we need to wait for it to take effect

+3 Level
-Post that WAR will save humanity by going forward in time and fighting Skynet
-Post that Mark and Paul Barnett are butt doubles for Brad Pitt in his movies.

-1 Level
-Offer constructive criticism in a helpful tone
-Point out obvious design flaws but blame it on the laidoff employees.

-5 Level
-Say the game is not very good.

FORUM PERMABAN
-Speak your mind freely
