Is there a dog in the story and can we pet him/her?
Sojourn has a very cute doggo. No word on snuggleability
So… what happens on June 16th?
National Fudge Day
Send Mackinac Island fudge please
It isn’t. But would anyone be shocked if it is eventually scrapped? I don’t expect that it would be, but it would hardly be a surprise if it was.
considering that we’ve been growing the team with the express goal of supporting both PVE and PVP, I would be tremendously surprised if it was scrapped
Hey, do you think you would consider doing community polls on the forums and look at the various feedback based upon the Duration of the account being factored in.
Not a data scientist, but forum polls are rarely useful data. They’re easily socially engineered and influenced by a small number of adamant voices
We have a User Research group whose job it is to perform blind and scalable measuring of sentiment and feedback, and present that information with as much personal bias stripped out as possible.
Forum, reddit, social media feedback is most useful as anecdotal evidence, and in some cases provides context in the form of volume of conversation. That’s not to say it isn’t useful; it’s simply more qualitative than quantitative
Hopefully it can continue after launch and not just be for beta?
that’s the plan
I’d just like to say that the developer blogs have been fantastic and well received.
Jodie has been doing a wonderful job with our editorial strategy. The fact that she was a fan and player of the game before joining the team is really shining through in how we’re structuring our blogs, the language we’re employing, and the information we’re including
Super proud of my team
You…actually believe there’s a PvE Overwatch 2 game coming?
That stuff is deader than King Tut.
Then what have I been playtesting?
Then can we get some info on what we can expect? If you’re not holding info back for the event…why hold it back?
Probably because there are dozens of people who are working their butts off in preparation for the announcement
Me leaking or giving any sort of indicator on what to expect is incredibly disrespectful of their time, efforts, and energy
Incidentally, any news on when the Experimental is expected to be back up?
Not yet. My understanding is they’re still investigating the issue.
I personally want more details on experiments and planned change but I guess those aren’t being shared because they’re in progress… like the unused Moira experiments we only heard about after-the-fact.
The dev blogs from beta (which we’ll be continuing), the recent stats blog, the Moira blog, are all examples of us moving towards more transparency and involving the community in our development process. Shifting our philosophy and comms strategy to a new approach takes time, and iteration, to get right.
I know that Jodie and I haven’t been as active on the forums for the last few months. TBF, we’re heads down on planning for the next phase of beta and beyond at the moment. Hopefully I can carve out some more time soon to jump in here (I had 2 meetings cancelled today, which allowed me time for posting and responding)
