What's the point in trolling and playing devils advocate.
These guys are back in control of the game and are wanting to be more flexible, transparent and approachable. They are involved in Skype discussions and wanting to develop the game for the better.
With regards to it only being PVP, one aspect can only be tackled at one time. That's the problem there has been in the past, you read the forums and everyone has an opinion. You can't make every change.
This is a more direct and frankly more considered approach that gives the developers a chance to fix certain aspects and develop others
Rome wasn't built in a day so give them a chance.
That google doc IS a good idea. I would fully support it. But no, Sentry is not trolling. It's EA that's trolling here. I've read someold topics recently on the forum (back from 2012).
And you know what? Almost the same accusations back then. No communication with players, glitches, unbalanced POI system, promoting super-alliances etc.
And what do we get from Phenomic/Envision now? Still no communication. No word on their plans, on what they want to do, how they want to do it. And... what are they doing now? what EXACTLY are they working on?
Because we've heard many times "devs are working hard on the game". And what were the results? None to barely noticeable.
Now that you guys accuse us of trolling, it's only one step before you blame EA fails on us. Heck, someone already did this, stating, that there would be more progress, if devs didn't have to read our complains. No, let's better focus on positives, praise EA, pay happily insane money, and let them do nothing and have no incentive to fix the game - because everyone is happy and the game is OK, right? Well, if everyone is just giving positive suggestions and keeps supporting every decision made, this is what it looks like.
About "building Rome" - yeah, game development takes time. But really, how hard is it to show some respect for people, and share your plans? ASK first before you introduce something? Like Salamander's upgrade?
