What's the point, when the same exact complaints are constantly brought up, but are neither addressed nor even acknowledged?
I'm not trying to be snarky. I'm just genuinely puzzled as to why Turbine asks for feedback so often but almost never participates in the threads, says what is working the way it should and what isn't, clarifies confusing aspects, says what they plan to change, and so forth. It would be like me noticing that my kids don't like some of the things I make for dinner and asking them what they'd prefer -- then just ignoring them and continuing to make the same dinners anyway.
While some improvements have been made to Mabar, the core complaints about mechanics are exactly the same as ones I read in my first Mabar two years ago. And even some of the new changes are not improvements -- the mob mix is poor, monsters have too-low CRs, etc. etc.
I don't get it.
