Except Itzkoopa made the thread and the announcement, so he was the one doing the colouring in this case Charista.


But on to other things, do you think it will use the guild war format? or be one on one with monsters and after you finish off your monster the fight moves on to the next guild member and their fight?

Fairie, Koopa wasn't the one that ignored the third option and tried to pretend the fourth was a vote in favour, instead of abstainers as is the most likely case. Koopa created the original options, but it was Bullbound that interpreted them. The manipulation was in the analysis, not the options presented.

I have seen such things where the poller did inherently twist the options to make certain choices subtly impossible in order to draw a preconceived conclusion, but not in this case, since the "Yes" and "No" are clear and unsullied. If anything, by presenting an additional, colourful "No" option, Koopa may have skewed some "Yes" votes to "No", merely because the option was humorous.

In the interest of keeping positive, what kind of format can we expect?

>> Much the same as a guild war, just with progressively more difficult monsters to defeat?

>> Will there be a finite number of dungeons?

>> How will rewards be given? Gear, xp, gold, acheivements?

More details should be forthcoming, Itzakoopa. Can you give us something to tell our guilds?

If I recall correctly from previous posts, the guild goes up against a single, very powerful monster, in much the same manner as your side of a guild war. There are also only 100 such monsters.

I'm hoping that second point changes, or that they're planning on adding more at some point. It seems a bit off that they'd add in something so desired by the community, then turn it into "here, here's something to entertain you for a couple of months before it runs out!"

Hmmm ... so it's a boss mob?

>> How many people will be needed to defeat it?
>> Will you need a group containing mages, warriors and scouts, or will, say the guild Sherwood Outlaws (fictitious) be able to bring down the boss with only their archers?

What I meant about the ties, was that the counts for all the options were about the same. I added no color or interpretation. I meant exactly what I said. At the time of the post, they all had 8 votes, with the "No" option having 6. To me, that is all of them are tied, except for the "No" which had less than the others. 6 is less than 8 and 8 = 8 = 8. I mean exactly what I stated. Charista, I used no marketing speech with you and the antagonism, I feel, is misplaced. All my posts in support of the Guild Dungeons and waiting for them, were genuine. For information on formating and such, do a search for "Guild Dungeons" and "Guild Raids" but without the quotation marks. You will find some info on here, and even more information on the German servers.

You are correct, sir.

Playa Games would not just let S+F run out of content. It's not so much as giving some content for a few months and wiping your hands, as it is getting the development cycle under control. This content, no matter how simple it may seem, takes awhile to produce and (generally) even longer to test.

We wouldn't want to steam roll these bosses, or get steam rolled by them, right?

Please, then, explain to me how "Thermal nuclear war is more likely" does not mean "No."

Charista, I never stated that and neither did iTZKooPA. You should read the post I made which is number 26 in this thread.
