Dear Devs,

I still remember how amazing it was to slowly come to the realization that there was a level cap increase in Mod 4. Honestly, nothing was better than realizing that this huge deal that no one expected to be in the module was actually there.

Since we already know you guys want to get another level cap increase in Mod 6, I'm asking you to keep some other big news under wraps until close to release. Surprise us with something that we all want, but we never thought you'd get into the mod. I don't really care what it is, but it's a very cool feeling, sort of like Christmas morning.

Thanks,

MT

I always liked it when I'd get something really small in a really big box. Maybe some misdirection just to be fun.

(just kidding, I don't think the forum base has much of a sense of humor)

Well...... since they haven't said exactly when it is going to be released, it will technically be on-time as long as it is released in December or January.

Yeah, they should start dropping hints about it as we get closer to the Mod. Like whatever it was that DeadlyGazeebo posted that made us go "Wait a second... that would mean..."

Yeah, MT. I like this line of thinking. The guesswork is really fun.

Then again with lvl cap raise, fixes for ranged combat, enhancments for rangers and rogues, and no clue at all what they have in mind for new content...

I'm excited already.

Only for the 17 of us that actually read the forums, and then spend our time repeating it =)

I hope you're not counting me in that number. I just glance at the title and then start writing things. I don't actually read anything in the posts. :D

I like MT's suggestion, very much.

One other...give us some screenshots to look over too, like you did in MOD 4 (? I think)....people trying to guess what the mobs were, people get excited looking at the pics, not too revealing, just enough....kinda like french knickers.....thanks, have a wonderful day....

I've been thinking the same thing. I think that having too much information before hand has been building things up in my head, and then I get let down when the reality of the game does not live up to the vision in my head. Like seeing the movie adaptation of a good book... yeah, the movie may be awesome, but the book was always better.


But, I may just stop reading the Dev Updates for that very reason. I don't read spoilers on the 'net for things I want to be suprised about for other games & movies... so I may just stop reading the Dev's own spoilers. ;)

I do like surprizes, but i hope they tease us a little :D

actually i wonder if the "New" style of load screen with no release info is a kinda surprise in itself. Now we have no idea just when the next mod is, hehe.

Yes. They should definitely add something we aren't expecting for some reason but leave a few hints. Here, let me help with some Developer Comment intros you could make starting late November for something sneak you should add into Mod 6:


We've chopped the new blah blah
The flurry of blah blah
To stop you from quivering, we've added blah blah
Though it won't make a diamond out of your soul, the new rez mechanic blah blah
You should keep those kamas.

(disclaimer: this is a joke)

I'm still waiting on them to go, "All right, we all thought about it, and we've heard your complaints. To satisfy everyone, we're removing rogues and pally's from the game. you have 12 hours to transfer your gear to another character."

What I would like to see is something like.

The new combat mechanic will be (then leave blank from here on for a couple weeks)

Things of that nature, so that we know what is coming down the pipeline just not how it will be done.

I hear you, but some people may be teetering on leaving the game if something is not included, and I'd hate to see poeple leave over something they thought was not going to be there that ends up there.

But then they can come back and have a little chuckle at their own silliness.
