Hey guys, so it seems that the powers that be in Wartune are finally learning to think about listening to players after I sent them dozens of survey results showing what players think about various aspects of the game. So, occasionally, they also decide to run a survey claiming that “player feedback is important to them”, to which one player (Paul) replied:
“player feedback is important to you”…. that’s so funny you should be a stand-up comic, I’m still laughing at that comment”
Anyways, back to the purpose of this post which is to highlight that these people have no idea about the game they are running. Now why would I say something like that? This is because from the 12 questions which they have put in their “Wartune V5.8 Gameplay Survey” about half of them (5-6) are totally invalid.
Are you satisfied with the new Eudaemon: Blood Demon?
Invalid. Nobody has it as they did not put it in the game, so nobody can give a satisfaction report on it.
(and even if they put it on sale only few will pay cash to buy it)
(funny last option = f. I haven’t obtained this Eudaemon, which normally everyone answering the survey should select and then they will have dozens of meetings thinking how come nobody has it until one bright light bulb will realize that they never offered it to players)
What’s your opinion about the Outland Contest?
Are you satisfied with the current event time for Outland Contest?
Would you prefer an Outland Contest on the weekend?
The Outland Contest opens on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays starting at 10 a.m. Every 4 hours an event will open with a total of 4 events. How does this event arrangement work for you?
Invalid questions. Nobody has had a chance to try it as this was not added in the game. So how can players give feedback? (But they don’t play the game and they don’t know the game so these are perfectly good questions for them)
Hard to Tell
Are you satisfied with the feature in which you obtain EXP for logging in?
This one is harder to figure out. Either they know they have killed all the camper players and are checking what is the backlash or they have no idea what they have done and are just asking for compliments for giving extra “rewards”.
Are you satisfied with Wartune 5.8?
What are your favorite Patch 5.8 features? choices: a. Voyage, b. Blood Inferno, c. Outland Contest, d. New Titans, e. Kitten Club, f. Smelting Equipment, g. VIP/New Spirit Covenant Privileges, h. New Eudaemon – Blood Demon, i. Devotion Adjustment. (Blood Inferno is not a 5.8 feature.)
Do you like the Kitten Club adjustments?
Are you satisfied with the Voyage system?
Are you satisfied with the VIP and Spirit Covenant adjustments?
(Only one wonders if anything would be adapted based on player feedback.)
Player Reactions to this Survey
Various complaints on the new devotion system which forces players to be online at specific times of the day.
“you never listen to ur consumers so why give us a survey lol”
Player comments that the Outland Contest is not out so questions are silly.
“haha they had like 3 questions about outland contest , why put a survey out when events havn’t even started.”

P.S. Our Wartune 5.8 Survey
We already had a survey up and running. At the moment of writing this we have 355 votes with 32% choosing “good progress” for the patch, 27% neutral, which is not a good score of performance for the patch, but otherwise, finally I am happy to see more happy people with more positive options being on the higher end of the survey. Here it is, feel free to vote or look at the results of the votes:
