Oh hi survey.

Would you like to take a survey? Champions Online would like you to take a survey. It’s a survey about the future development of the game, even. It’s a quick SurveyMonkey thing, so it’s not tremendously elaborate or time-consuming, but it still does serve as a sign that the developers are seriously paying attention to what players like and what they’d like to see in the future. At least insofar as collecting feedback goes. Beyond that, the game is prepping for the final chapter of The Serene Abyss, which is set to go live on Tuesday, March 31st.

Meanwhile, Star Trek Online isn’t asking for what players want; instead, it’s just giving you what you want in the form of bonus marks for three whole weeks. Starting today and running until April 16th, all mark gains will be boosted by 50%, giving you an extra edge in finishing projects, reputations, and other tasks within the game. So if you’ve been trying to finish up a particularly lengthy project, hey, you now have exactly the sort of boost you need. Helpful, yes?

Hmmm, bad survey… there need to be control based answers for when your answer doesnt apply to any. Way too many leading questions.

… and honestly, I couldnt help but think “Why does it feel like they are trying to gauge the next best thing to monetize?” rather than trying to figure out the best course for overall game improvement.

Champions Online used to be pretty good, but Perfect World brought in all the generic mmo garbage while putting it in maintenance mode. Could never really get back into after that point, all the little inconveniences you could pay to remove and constant lockbox spam sapped all the fun out of it.

With all the upcoming superhero games they need to do something.

Move forward silently or roll over and die sounds like the most likely.

honestly, the new super hero games, even though they are “new”, dont even match up to CO, even though its super old and dated. Im not a huge fan of CO either. (just super hero games in general)

ooof, glad my pals and i had a go at it way back before the eventual hatedom swarms show up

i liked it
but then ofc i would, since i regularly play whenever i can; so from that standpoint, it was less a sequence-of-questions to me and more a better-idea-of-what-happening-behind-the-scenes.

hopefully something good comes out of this. it was a targeted survey, and the fact that there is even a survey means i can hope that champs is being allowed a bit more than the nauseatingly low resources it is used to

Did the survey, but honestly, i think it’s a pretty bad way of gauging…well anything really.

If the management of CO would quit being villainous, they might make more money.

I’d bet the various returned CoH servers pull in more money than CO.

I got the survey too and completed it.

I wish game studios done surveys more often since they are generally prone at not understanding what players want
