    There is an ongoing vote on which features should CIG put a focus on for 3.2

    I think this is strange time for them to start deciding features for 3.2. Those all sound like things that the company would want to know at least a month in advance, assign it to a team, make more detailed plan on how the team is going to do it, do a company-wide meeting on what expertise and support each team lacks and what they might have a bit too much, and have detailed plans ready in advance.

    Why on earth is RSI making the decisions this late?
  • Do Soulpacks = Lootboxes?

    With souls, you are buying 3 souls for 10 dollars. That is their resale value, and the price the seller is asking. If that is not a price you want to pay, don't buy it.

    If you will settle for nothing less then an Old Soul or Unique Soul, and everything else is worthless to you, that does not change the market value of 3 souls is 10 dollars.

    That does not change that you are not buying an Old Soul or a Unique Soul, you are buying a Pack of 3 Souls (with the promise of nothing more then 3 generic fresh start souls). If that does not work for you, don't buy it.

    If RNG is something you don't like, then don't play into the system. That is how I roll, as I do not like RNG games like this either.

    But again, that does not change you are getting your value, that this is not a loot box, and this is no a gamble.

    If the value of a pack that contains 3 souls of random type is 10 dollars, then the value of 3 normal souls is less than 10 dollars and the value of packs with Old Soul or Unique soul is more than 10 dollars.

    You're not paying the real value of the souls in the pack, you're gambling.

    Hey, I may be whiny,  but I'm no freeloader.  I just want to be able to buy my advantages post launch, not pre.

    sounds like you don't want to take a risk with your cash?

    So if your not willing to take the risk why should you reap the same reward???

    Nothing against you btw, counts to anyone who thinks they should be able to purchase what someone else did when they took all the risk and you sat back?
    Normally it would make sense that the company sells to anyone willing to buy, any time.

    But for you and other CoE supporters this isn't about buying a good car, it's about buying a better car than your neighbor. You're making your purchases because you want to buy advantage that won't be sold to other players.
  • Is it normal that all the Russian players got kicked out of the SOTA community?

    I mean if they are going to deny players from access to the game the least they can do is issue refunds to them.

    They can't fix it with refunds.  They don't give refunds and they force people into the RMT market as a way to justify not giving refunds.  But now players can't access the player market so all their access to the RMT market is gone too.
    They are not denying players access go the game, every one plays on the same servers, unlike most localization deals.

    I assume in a few weeks they'll sort out all of the access issues in terms of backer rewards, RMT items or what not.

    If not fixed by launch, then its time to bring out the tar and feathers.
    The website, store and forums are part of the game experience and some people are denied access to that. The time to bring out tar and feathers is now.

    hmmm I'd like to offer that having to drag items to the paper doll is not an "issue".

    Let's call it a terrible minigame, then.

    If the game forces you to do extra steps that's either a gameplay to limit how fast and successfully you're able to perform and action or it's an issue. And SotA's decision to add this kind of gameplay to equipping items is a truly terrible minigame.
