I’ve been thinking about communication since I saw a tweet about The Cycle: Apparently, players submit their pipedreams and bug reports and suggestions to a Trello board.
I personally love that tool, but it seems pretty unusual for this purpose. Usually MMO companies will have suggestion forums, bug report tools, or even just subreddits where they point players, but let’s be honest, those are File 13 destinations: Nobody’s really listening. And yet a lot of indie games and Kickstarter games do actually want that feedback, so collecting it in an organization tool seems pretty brilliant. Way better than a forum where everything is buried in short order, right?
What would you say is the best way to communicate ideas to MMO developers?
