Poll System for Changes to the game

Devs, please could we get some sort of poll or voting system for patch changes, and have a say if we like the changes or not. It would give better input for the dev team and with peoples opinions. For example reducing the player count on blast, as this has annoyed some of the community. Cheers!

    I think the trouble with polls is they aren't seen by all and can be open to abuse. What would work well and was suggested over on reddit was setting up a CTE (Community Test Environment) however based on Ben's replies it seemed unlikely to happen. Hopefully with a more detailed roadmap upcoming changes can receive feedback prior to them going live.
    What do you mean they aren’t seen by all? The devs aren’t making changes to the game based on people who can’t provide any feedback whatsoever anyway. And people who do provide feedback are the ones paying attention to this sort of stuff. Polls can’t be open to abuse if you’re only allowed to cast one vote, or is this not possible? I know plenty of companies who frequently send surveys about their in game content and actually take action based on it. I’ve never received one from EA games though.

    We talked about a poll system before launch. It would be cool if they had like do you want: A. This 1 or B. That hero

    But I understand that it isn’t best to make what a 2 choice poll gave. It’s much more complicated.

    I've been saying it forever, they need to implement a poll on the ingame splash screen as that is the most accurate way to actually get a representative sample of the opinions of people who play the game... the forums/reddit etc. are outlier populations.

    Even just a simple 2 choice poll on loading the game would yield valuable feedback.

    Could give something to do while matches are loading or waiting on players.

    More maps would make me happy - reskins welcome and more extraction is a must.

    That's been suggested on here loads of times. Just like many other things have been suggested on here but never get read.
    We just get forum moderators saying "it's been escalated".
  • Waiiiit, didn’t they host a poll at one point? It was the first time Galactic Conquest (Not conquest) was mentioned.

    What a shame :/ Just seen this on reddit
  • I'd also like to see a poll system in-game to get feedback from users in-game.

  • So a company from one of the games I used to play did a fantastic thing.
    There was serious controversy about weather variant maps and much heated debates on the forums by a minority that was quite vocal.
    To deal with this, they decided to set up a poll that was accessed via email invites. To have an account to play, you had to submit a valid email. This reached a much larger portion of the playing community, not just the forumers or redditers.

    Surprisingly to many, the overall playerbase were fine with the weather variant maps.

    I don't know why more devs don't use this method as it does reach a much larger segment of the playerbase. In most games, only a tiny portion are actually in the forums or Reddit ...

    hmm
    1. black screen of death on xb1 - never loads to anything especially out of HvV
    2. Maul and saber throw - well it has been invisible and doing no dmg
    3. hit markers and no dmg has become the running rampant fiend in this iteration - not funny
    4. several matches from HvV to Blast to Strike to Extraction - I get the 0 cred - and unlike what has been posted I did NOT receive whit should have been earned - you ball out and take mvp - 115 creds is not kosher
    5. HvV and quitters - why I don't play showdown...quitters - HvV should be tdm - it is **** - my teammates just jump off the ledge to not be 'it' or they quit...wat to often i'm the lone ranger in 1v4
    6. not having purples unlock until 25 for heroes/villains - stupid - maybe 20 instead
    7. challenged post round are still broken and half often the challenges we finish says we still have more to go - the system tracker is not up to snuff
    8. point disparity - so end of round the scoreboard says one score and my battle point accruement says another - often it is within 50 or so points but accounting is accounting - that is basic get it right folks fundamentals
    9. how often do players die because the setting a turret doesn't drop or I hit the button and nope...DICE issue
    10. on Kessel extraction the kill assist does not function for the specialist - have more than 60 rounds of sorted info to say DICE has something broken - it's not a good guy / bad guy issue - it is a point tally issue
    11. shield dmg is not right either - pop shield and get hit from weapon this or that and the nades through shields - have died so often to infiltration from range through the off shield and the bubble - not right folks
    12. just killed Vader w/ Rey - 2 swings from full health - this is wrong...as a wookie warrior I took on three death troopers and 4 troopers w/ one imploder and one overload - wrong - yup - why is this qty allowed in small game modes??? - - - why when I throw the whole team of bad guys off a cliff in HvV do I get kill assists?...toss a nade and teammate steps in front of me and now i'm dead - DICE please!!!...first portion on Kessel is too easy to stomp the enemy in the first hall - needs some evaluation, maybe that elevator or something...then again maybe not so many enforcers in 8 v 8 combat - duh?,
    13. lag - was typically an issue on GA for xbone but lately on small game modes (8v8) it is just silly when my ping is 20 and snappy to have players teleporting, rolling, jumping, rolling, jumping and then kill you from a long time ago from a galaxy far, far away - - - I don't rage quit anymore since I already ran down that hallway so why do it again, it is DICE so finish the round - grab a beverage and tend to the garden or kids movies or trim your nails and maybe SOON it will get better...Sooon, soon....
