DDO starts taking player council applications

    
5
Ever want to bend a developer’s ear and have influence on your favorite MMO? One option is to shout into the void of forums and Reddit, while another is to join the elite few of player councils.

Over the next week Dungeons and Dragons Online is accepting applications for its 2016 player council. Applicants need to be in good standing with the game and agree to an NDA for the duration of a council position. The exact size of the DDO player council is unknown, as the studio said that it is somewhere between 10 and 100 people.

According to Turbine, “The DDO Player Council is a group of players selected to provide targeted feedback and valuable suggestions to the DDO Team. This will involve participating in surveys, focused discussions, as well as highly structured and targeted developer chats. Often the topics covered will be elements of game design at their earliest stages, well before they are committed to development or appear in our preview programs like Lamannia.”

I haven’t played DDO in a while but when your message boards are held hostage by trolls and the ‘vocal minority’ I guess this is one way to improve the signal to noise ratio.

Just speaking from past Councils, it tends to be 20-30 people, with only about a dozen of those people active in the feedback process.

vicariousfan Quincha This is still by far the best mmo representation of the D&D game. Single player has many titles that where done so well this game would be far down the list of greats but it did capture the dungeon experience very well considering it’s age and being based on a pnp game.

Quincha oh god no, not for DDO.    That would be awful for the design of the game.  Not every MMO can be an open world sandbox and a DDO one would not fit D&D. 

For what it is DDO is a really good D&D experience.
