  • Every Player's Vote Counts

    This is my final thought until I see some sort of positive changes inside the game.

    What I've seen over the past month is player against player, opinion against opinion. I see this Line group formed, that Line group formed. I see this post against that post. I see a group collecting data from all the various sources and presenting said information to ownership (Kabam, Gaea, I don't give damn at this point). I don't see how that information is presented nor how priority is established. I see owners who simply don't appear to give a rat's asss (perhaps they do and work very hard in their offices, but I don't see it either in game progress or real life).

    So if the owners are provided all these opinions, how to do they possibly sift through it all to find a solution most players deem worthy to call 'an improvement'?

    How can they ask all players if they like an idea or not?

    Crossworld BtBs tourneys.

    A Yes Boss.

    A No Boss.

    Each boss only has 1 supply troop. Since 1 supply troop has 1 might, each supply troop killed should be consider 1 vote.

    These two BtBs are active for 24 hours. There is a 'successful' Hit Limit of 1. You may only hit one or the other. Defeat the Boss to cast your vote. When you defeat the Yes Boss, you cast a Yes vote. Defeat the No Boss, you cast a No vote. At the end of the tourney the number total number of places in each BtB is the total vote count. Highest tally wins.

    You must be at Lvl ? to qualify for a hit (what level is appropriate to squash many alts I don't know). This is similar to participation in PvP tourneys.

    Why use this method? Simply put, EVERY qualified player has an opportunity to voice their opinion. The owner has a simple means to tally votes. And you can't get more transparent.

    If you cannot make it work with a TK style might count, then make a Yes Trophy and a No Trophy. Defeat your Boss the collect your trophy (or your vote). But please make these phantom trophies or some kind of point system. We don't need another item to add to our collection.

    If for some reason you cannot limit the number of hits, the total number of places in a given tourney is still the total number of votes. Doesn't matter if I hit 1 time, 12 times or 342 times. I can only place once.

    If you can't restrict hitting to only one boss, then it really doesn't matter either. If someone chooses to hit more than one boss, they nullify their own vote.

    If there are more than two choices, then have a boss per choice.

    There are multiple ways to skin this cat. No reason you could not make it work.

    I agree that a way to vote makes sense. I do think that much of this is way too complicated though and many people won't bother because of this.

    So here is what I think is a simpler suggestion.

    Give people a token (or maybe a few tokens) for voting. These could be available in the calendar as a simple way to distribute or in in game mail.

    Place options in the round tower to vote by using your token for the option you prefer. The act of voting gives the player a "You voted" chest which could contain items such as skins/furies/speed/troops etc.).
    The same chest is in all options.

    I get this this does not rule out alts and such, so your idea of qualified player is somewhat skewed potentially. But you could also give people who have been on the game longer more votes. So if you are a 3 year player, you get 3 votes, a 4 year gets 4. This allows you actually have the people who have been playing the longest have greater weight which is somewhat fair since they also have the most invested in the game and know the issues better than someone who has only been playing for a few months or a year.

    Not that anything will happen because they clearly do not care what we think. But who knows, hope springs eternal (though Gaea is doing it's best to squash it like a bug).

      Voting yes a system similar to that of the banners vote would work it worked when kabam did it . As for older players getting more votes then newer players not sure that is fair since yes the older players have more invested but the game dies if new players don't come and stay and the older players issues are quite different then the newer players issues it would be nice to have fair representation of all problems for all types of players

          Key to having a vote is transparency

          Having a whisper voting system did not work. Especially for grail frags. Once, Kabam put up charms as the vote winner. An instant uproar ensued. No none could find anyone that voted for charms.

          Maybe I made it little more convoluted than needed. Yes BtB. No BtB. Hit to cast your vote. Kill a troop or get a trophy (something than can be opened and has minimal value, so these things don't stay in our inventory), it doesn't matter. The point is transparency.

          Cross world standings are visible in near real time. Hit a boss to cast your vote. Result is visible within a few minutes. The entire community can see the results.

          Look at the standings for King of KBN. They only showed the top 3000 places. But if that were a BtB for a vote (whether you collect trophy or kill a troop at the boss) your vote would be cast and visible to all. Yes or NO votes....hit this boss for yes, that boss for. Total number of players indicated in the rank is the total number of votes cast for yes or no.

          Like others have said, this whole business of having 3 players represent the whole community is less than comforting. No one has any idea how things are presented or if they represent the good of the whole and not just a select few. So if these mods stay as representation for the whole, it would be good to see what changes are being bandied about and whether the entire community actually agrees with it or not.
