NaughtyDog.com: We're listening...

146 replies 151 views Edited Feb 24, 2010

We put up a new post over at NaughtyDog.com just to let you know that we're listening to all your feedback. Even though many (most? all?) of you know that we read and respond on these boards, I don't know if it's immediately obvious that we do take into account what your feedback or opinions are things are. We felt it was important to let you know that we listen to what you have to say, without it being assumed, buried in hundreds of comment replies or across a dozen threads about the subject.

 

I've been reading and thinking quite a bit over the past week and there is one more thing I wanted to say seperately from the blog post. Although discussion has died down a little about it, among a lot of the threads here there was a common misconception on how we used or interpreted our Experimental Weekend poll (or any other poll for that matter).

 

We haven't used and don't intend in the future to use poll results as a proxy for an absolute voting system. We are always finding ways to get and compile thoughts and feedback from our player community to make us better informed about our current and future decisions. While there can be plenty of debate surrounding the results and our interpretation of data from the poll, the methodology is decent and the resulting numbers are sound. As a result, this poll helped us make some decisions we were considering about adjustments to multiplayer. I hoped it would be clear that we didn't take the poll as an absolute mandate to us that this was what our player community wanted -- our adjustments differed greatly from what you experienced in the Experimental Weekend. However, there was a similarity because your responses helped our decisions on what avenues of adjustments -- that we were already considering -- were more worthwhile than others.

I'll be watching to see what you do in the future with your GOTY.

 

With the large amount of feedback you've gotten about 1.05, I'm hoping you guys can expand on its successes and rectify its failures.
