Top 5 likes and why (be brief please ) about 6.500
I like that you still try.
HD was the coolest thing in CW. It´s nice to see it return, though I think that you killed the blob campaign gameplay with that.

There is a roadmap
Top 5 Dislikes and why (be brief please) about (what you feel we could be doing better on or a pesky game mechanic that you don't enjoy) and how can we make it better?
The roadmap is disappointing. "Short/mid term" means "done with configs", "long term" stands for "pure marketing" and should be less concrete. More an abstract idea to show us your greater vision. We don´t need concrete ideas for DREGS if HD kills it. There is nothing on the roadmap that has to be coded. It seems as if you wanted to go live with a bit of polish for the existing systems and configs. That´s not enough. We need systems against world domination and so much more.
A feedback thread isn´t a proper replacement for the suggestions forum, because it limits the thinkable room to your stuff.
What 3 features excite you about our last Live Stream?
I´m not so excited anymore, sorry.
What are you not happy about with our last Live Stream?
As always: There is a huge difference between JTC´s visions and reception and my reception of CW. I updated my client and logged in - seems the community has a different view on "It´s the best CW we ever had", too. There were 10 players on live, 2 on test and HD was down. Please get in touch with your community and stop living in a dream.
Feedback for Tiggs on how I can help you or the community more, or things you'd like to see happening from me?
Tiggs, you do a solid job, but it´s hard to communicate when there´s noone left to talk to. I recently found the Universim Discord. They have an awesome interaction with their community. But there´s more than communication involved. Their devs deliver => they talk it through => their devs deliver based on the feedback => ... . They do it at a very high speed with very good results and everyone is a part of the development cycle. Here at CW the development is a bit on the slow side, so there isn´t much we need to talk about.
I first played CW when it did not even have textures, some years ago. It looks better now, but the gameplay did a tango two steps in this, one step in that direction. In a circle. One example: Replacing a bad passive system with something even worse is nothing I want to talk about for more than some posts.
Ok, let me take this as an example for bad communication. The community wasn´t satisfied with the passive system since the beginning. There are 1000 threads how much and why it sucks and how to replace it with something useful. ACE ignored a major part of the playerbase for years in this regard. Then, instead of "You´re right, it sucks. What do you think about 1000 disciplines and a system that kills all smaller guilds instead?" JTC says "We didn´t like it either" and just shoved something even worse down our throats. Why should we still try to contribute if you ignore us.
