At the risk of sounding real not cool (jk I don’t care) the council is smart imo but just think the overall set up even while I was there is just not meant for the overall whole of people to get the info it’s meant for certain individuals and their friends/factions to get the info ahead of time. Which leads to an advantage of game play and other aspects.
After the “buckets article” which now seems to be a joke, everyone on the PC minus Lady Geek and VV member #2 (dont know if he came out and told people not my place to) pretty much said they were leaving/wanted answers. Where respectfully none were really provided so half the council lived to their word and did exactly that and left and half stayed; now I don’t talk to anyone really left on the council outside of VV member #2, and we purely talk about the game. Meaning I no longer have constantly flow of info from the inside coming my direction. Granted its not months in advance info but here’s the true problem no one thinks about.
The info provided there that you do get in advance in some cases can save you money from knowing what toons are coming; and which ones to focus your materials and resources on (aka the gear shortage, they knew in advance gear was about to start getting tight, the smart ones saved their gear for toons like Aarav not Pete)
The next issue is after half of the council left they have only since added Parker (might be wrong) I feel as if the only reason to be there now if purely for self gain or faction gain…outside of that the PC since half left got real real real quiet.
The PC should be expanded imo to a group which directly talks to the devs (15-20 people) meaning they got people to replace and readd. The need content creators such as @Invisinerd and people who disagree with them like I do such as @snichols but 7 people while 5 are from 2 factions I think is silly and pointless.
It’s not about cool kids club or who likes who. But their should be a core group of PC members 15-20, then the JB line chat/forums chat that’s constantly updated so people know.
Such as people been asking about gold bars? That shouldn’t be on PC to relay, even tho appreciated to keep farming them. (Unsure if official word was given yet)
Or any other issues…or things that effect game play.
Again PC has perks and people stay on top of it…but it’s still seeming like lip service.
If I need help or anything directly or questions I go straight to JB anyways.
