Spiritwalk is the best overall clan my ass. Having more people doesn't = a better clan. Go screw yourselves you lying sacs of crap.

There is a lot to digest with the changes section.
It may take a while.


All of these questions are biased and no one can factually say 'this is better/worse than this'

That being said, I am not surprised 13 won. Almost everyone in there plays actively, does things together and gets along.
You don't have to be an upper class clan that goes on a lot of runs to be successful.

Don't be so conceited skit.

ALL the clans on that list deserved to be on there.

Also a lot of people are griping.
I expected this the minute I decided to do the survey.
Whether it is a global, a player run contest or something simple and silly as a survey SOMEONE will be whining.

I don't care. None of the above questions were important to me. The last ones were.
Tough break if you weren't nominated, no one said your name in the sample groups.

A lot of people voted and enjoyed it.

Thanks to all that participated.

To those that are still griping,
If you know better, then make your own :)

I know better.

There is a company called surveymonkey.com

Many many corporations use it.

They will create an online, point and click, multiple choice survey. Then they will offer passcodes to those allowed to participate, then people log in during a timewindow, vote, and they instantly tabulate all the stats, mail print outs, etc.

They also DON'T need personal email addresses and have a strict privacy policy.

Grats to Niky and Clan 13:

Last nite before these results came out we were killing an ethereal master, and I couldn't believe the teamwork, lack of one-up-manship, speed, and professionalism with which it died.

It's such a great experience to form with them.

At times, they can work together very well. Many of them are friendly and helpful players. They might not be the best PKers or what have you, but they are a pretty good clan.

That monkey survey place doesn't do write-ins as well, does it? :P

*applauds Niky, Caillean, Jheron, Timeworm, and SpiritWalk*
*grumbles at Questman for winning*
:mrgreen:

FINAL SECTION!
Changes!


25. What is the best change/addition to this game this year?
Alyria voted: Tweaked what is considered "magic" damage and what isn't considered "magic" damage - currently way too much stuff is considered magic damage even when it shouldn't be.

2nd. Relics
3rd. Pk talk
4th. Reduced death timer on outlaws
5th. Witch class

26. Worst change?
Alyria voted: New change to repops

2nd. Increasing saint death timer
3rd. Change to 'quitting out' hunters
4th. Relics
5th. SVS reduction on several items
Note: Lots of other answers here, but these are the only ones repeated.

27. Does the pk system need to be revamped?
Alyria voted: Yes

Reasons why:
1. No incentive to pk-no incentive to be clan pk
2. Pk trackers make people care about their record too much
3. Too many ways for people who initiate fights to escape fights.
4. Pk has been sterotyped as the 'evil' part of the game.
5. Pk is boring-whoever lands certain spells first wins-no diversity
6. Has become upper class exclusive (lowbies don't have chance to pk)
7. Death timer
Note: A lot of good answers all around. These were the most repeated.

28. Does the questing system need to be fixed?
Alyria voted: No

29. Is there enough role-playing in this game?
Alyria voted: No
Reasons why:
1. No incentive
2. No connection to the mm story-only reason to read is to understand races-no continuation of story-no racial connections.
3. People are too obsessed with questing and/or pking
4. No reason to stay in character
5. The environment isn't conducive to roleplaying (flaming on boards/channels)
6. No rewards for roleplaying.

Note: A lot of people disagreed and said there was enough rp because this is an rpg and people should not be forced to rp.

30. Which upcoming feature are you most excited about?
Alyria voted: ARCHON CLASSES (2nd largest voting margin)
2nd. Ship combat/trade/cargo
3rd. Vandameer's Keep
4th. Clan Alliance System


A lot of great answers for all these questions.
Hopefully vas will get a look and see how a lot of people feel.

Solus, you did very well as for a write in.
Congrats to Niky as well, to win as a write in is amazing.

Nicias,
I know I could have run the thing better. I am talking about the content itself (if you disagreed with who was nominated etc)
At first I required emails, but then a friend got it onto a website.
3/4 of all votes came via the website.

Jheron hit it right on the nose too-even if you are griping you are still talking about it. You love to hate it :)

Thanks to everyone for participating!

For question 4, a lot of people (who didn't vote on the tie breaker mind you) are asking why colin or nicias didn't win.

At least 3/4 of all votes for Biran had notes like
"Don't need to boost Colin's ego"
or
"Nicias and Colin would enjoy the title"

Plus, Biran has a following of haters, they just aren't as vocal as some people in the game.

what bull crap, recount the most hated, i know i win that. Biran rigged it, he is a cheat!!

if u do it again, add a best located clan hall as a category. Maybe something like oldest active player. Best character (not just PK, but overall) since like every1 bases the best character in the game on PK. Favorite Imm. Most active player. Favorite mini. Most rewarding run. Favorite run.

just a few suggestions if anyone wants to do it again,

No, you lost fair in square.
Don't worry, a lot of people still hate you.

I am still waiting for all those 'other' surveys to come out.
