    Default Turbine [b]has[/b] asked us to choose between Housing and Raids!

    Just wanted to clear this up! Some people were being intentionally, erm, vague about it.

    They asked us to choose here:

    http://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread...06#post5066206

    I would like to know details though, is the raid going to be from a re-worked pack like Gianthold or entirely new content?

    Also, what kind of basic style will the Housing take?

    Turbine if you could let us know as soon as possible, that would be great. . . Giving us more information after the announcement about ED TR would be great. (or during, up to you!)

    Directly from the link you provided, please pay extra attention to the parts I boldend and underlined:

    Default Nah

    The horse has been beaten, thrown down the hill, strapped down with the famous mines from Undermine and topped off with an Ultima cast from one of the Final Fantasy series on the gossip about that lil housing comment.

    Instead, I will to choose to focus on the part of your link that seems largely ignored.

    What's a good idea for a new class? They probably have a few favorites but I'm sure the people here in the forums have their own favorites that we should perhaps share. For a chance at being productive anyway.

    I'd choose Samurai or Knight. If only because those are two classes I can think of off the top of my head. Maybe Duskblade. Yeah, y'know what I change my vote to Duskblade. But any new class is AOK with me.

    Well let's see what ProducerRowan said exactly:

    - Housing (we're discussing)

    We have to choose where to invest, so if raids are really the thing and housing is useless let us know. Raids get a lot of forum traffic but not necessarily the player usage.
    1. Point is that they discuss this internally, which does no where mean that you or we have to come up with a particular design... in short, it is one of those post-its on the big white board that is discussed.
    2. Despite the fact that he only listed two options, you can be certain, that they discuss more than that. One example is that they also said they talk about gnomes.
    3. He also said that nothing is promised, not to mention that there are some topics that they discuss since several years and they haven't seen the light of day yet, like the Wild Mage Prestige, or like his predecessor somehow promised us we will be able to craft paralysing weapons, which just wasn't true.
    4. They would like to get feedback if we think raid and/or housing are useless, so that they can decide

    We get it, that you are very ambitious when it comes to housing and you made your point clear, but you also have to accept that other players may not share your point of view! So I am sorry and understand that you are disappointed, but no we don't have to discuss/choose anything...
    * We have collectable bags, hell even hireling folders, but can I have that 6-pack for my potions please?
    * Having already a past life on the dieng EU servers, I rerolled here and started from scratch as I like the game and the community, so lets see what awaits me here

    -> They did not ask -US- to choose, they said -THEY- had to choose, and it would include player feedback. The original post did not say they were forced to chose one or the other, they could choose to invest in something entirely different.

    Now that that's out of the way,

    No please no housing right now. It would just be another expense of resources toward an end that would further monetize the game and add no substantial content value. If you want more shared space? fine.

    If you -REALLY- want your own house, start your own guild and buy a boat.

    And as for raids, unless something is done to increase LFMS for raids or allowing hirelings in raids, I'd prefer they didn't focus any more than necessary on those, too.

    I wonder if I were to post as many threads on the topic most important to me if it would be met with as much courtesy and patience as all the housing threads.

    And if you have not noticed by all the replies in all your threads on the topic;

    Housing is not what we want. IF Turbine is reading our feedback, they now know that Housing is NOT what we want, thanks to your numerous threads on the topic, so I guess we should thank you for bringing this up repeatedly and helping Turbine know how we stand on it.

    So thank you for removing the possibility of Player Housing from our future. Job well done.

    By the way;

    The "we" in 'we have to choose', is Turbine, NOT us.

    Why are you not able to understand any of this?

    That would depend on both the topic and how it was presented

    In my humble(ish) opinion: it's too late in the day to add Housing in any meaningful way in this game. If it was to be a feature, it should have been added alongside Airships.


    If implemented, I think it would largely ignore the aspect of it most players are looking for, storage, and rather be a mostly cosmetic and for-cash endeavor. Yeah, I could be wrong.... but I'd be very surprised if Housing realities aligned with player Housing expectations.

    Make it an expansion.

    Want a small House $30. Medium, $50. Large, $75.

    Put hook points in it like we have now with Airships.

    One portal to access all homes like we do with Airships.

    That way it is out of sight and out of mind. Nobody can visit said homes unless they too buy the x-pac too.

    That way those that want a house can pay for the luxury and sit in it alone.

    But Mem, how can we have Breakable Ransack Reset without player homes?

    Wow how many times do you need to be told you are mis-reading that?

    How many times are people going to say in your threads that they don't want housing they want storage and content?

    How many times will you call us trolls for disagreeing with you?

    In your last 3 or 4 pointless threads people have pretty much said that your ideas were horrible and that they didn't want housing. Guess you are just living in

    Turbine keeps on starting systems and leave them half finished. I wouldnt want them to work on an housing system at all. I'd like them to finish what they started... and add raids, and make old raids relevant again...

    Geez.

    As pointed out they (as in Turbine) were talking about it and they (as in turbine) would need to make decisions.

    Now having said that if they are looking for a set of priorities on new things to add I would say the following would work nice.


    1. New Enhancement lines
    2. New quests
    3. New Raids
    4. More bank / inventory space
    5. Updated / improved Named loot
    6. New races (Gnome I am looking @ you)
    7. Updated / consolidate crafting systems
    8. Spellcasting DC overhaul
    9. Better AI
    10. Realm events (a la marketplace of old)
    11. TR XP revamp
    12. Quest XP normalization
    13. More / better cosmetic armor kits
    14. More cosmetic pets
    15. New Classes (Psion, Psychic Warrior I am looking @ you)
    16. Expanded spell lists
    17. Player housing


    And I would do it in that order personally. Player housing while interesting is really not needed with the advent of guild ships and if it were added I would keep is mainly cosmetic. Maybe a wardrobe where you could slot in unused hair dye, hair styles and armor kits. Probably some hook points for pets so they can wander the house and perhaps a guild ship portal and that is about it.

    Making player housing with buffs and real in-game benefits, to me, is a waste of time as it would conflict with guild ships and end-up making both yet another half done implementation by turbine before the next Dev thinks of his new Shiny and leaves it twisting in the wind.

    I would hope that by this point it's been made clear that a majority (and a vast majority at that) of players providing feedback on this topic don't feel a need or have a desire for housing.

    If I had to chose between a house and raid, give me the house, at least that won't be invalidated by loot gen next update.

    Samurai and Knights are just more specific flavors of Fighter.
    All that is wrong with DDO, life, taxes, poltics, religion, music, fast food, education, the criminal justice system, the weather, society, the universe, and previously-discontinued-but-now-on-their-way-back snack cakes, is all the fault of Wizards of the Coast. I know this because Fred told me so, and Mind Flayers are smart.

    Just the next system they decide to make, and leave half finished.
