    What is the "Community Resource Council" - is that you?

    It used to be called the CRT (Community Resource Team) but it's basically a group of players that the devs utilize for specific questions or testing from time to time. The expansion is going to change how it works to an extent with more specific projects or things like that over time. They'll also be more public facing but don't have anything like GM or Moderation abilities if that's what you're asking.

    Had no idea what it was. Much like the beta testers, I would think.

    Thank you.

    To an extent yes, but this exists year-round, that being one of the primary differences.

    I don't feel qualified, but for those who do, what sort of time commitment is wished for?

    There is not a significant time commitment at the moment, at most the required time monthly would be for a planned monthly meeting, that would be about an hour or so. We're going to be iterating changes to the program instead of making them all at once so that might change in the future but it will be down the line and current members of the council will get ample notice.

    So based on the questions would I be right in assuming this is mostly game play mechanics related?

    Primarily yes. Lots of things fall under game mechanics though.

    Marketing too? I can represent the old lady demographic.
  15. dreamweaver Community Manager


    Marketing feedback? No that's probably not going to be part of it. I suppose it could happen from time to time though. But it's not planned as part of anything.

    What kind of testing do the devs have these people do and what kind of questions are asked of the crt? What exactly would be expected of members of this team?
  17. dreamweaver Community Manager


    It depends, it's been as broad as general knowledge questions that a dev knows the CRC can answer to testing or asking for feedback on a specific mechanic. At the moment really all that is "required" is what I have laid out. Being available for the planned monthly meetings, that is likely going to change as the group moves forward but those involved will get ample notice.

    No one has asked the most important question, why would anyone want to be part of the CRC?

    Going by what all members of the the previous CRT and earlier iterations of the group have said, with the exception of the original Class Representatives version, the members of the group are not allowed to give general input on the state of the game, their class, or anything important to them. Their sole purpose is to tell the Devs about what they want to hear, not pass along issues, bring up problems, or bring up suggestions about the direction different classes are going and how the playerbase would like them to go. Meanwhile everyone outside the group pretty much only sees the member as being there just for that, and when things are changed and big nerfs go through, the members are blamed for them happening.

    It sounds like we need to get a lot more details on what this group will do and what they will be asked to do.

    Including whether the group can submit issues to be considered.

    Well, there's always the people going, "Make it harder! Make it harder!"
    I've heard too much from them already. I can't even box anymore.
