  • Important update regarding playtest feedback, must read before posting!

    Hi all



    I have some important information regarding the newly updated feedback forum!



    1. All armies now have a commentary thread - this can be found both in the feedback forum AND under each army subforum as an announcement thread. Use the commentary thread when you want to comment on something from the feedback thread - you do this by putting a @'NAME' to call the player whose feedback you'd like to comment on. If the person delivering the feedback have a question you answer the player in the commentary thread OR send them a PM.
    2. DO NOT POST A COMMENT IN A FEEDBACK THREAD! Use the comment thread for comments
      1. Feedback = who won, army lists, victory points, observations from the game
      2. Comments = other people discussing the results, but with no real analytic value
    3. If you comment in the feedback thread your post will be moved (not deleted!) into the comment thread.
    4. Do NOT post battle reports in the feedback thread. We have a dedicated Battle Report forum which can be found by clicking this text and a user blog forum where you can also upload your Battle Reports, which can be found by clicking this text. It's very time consuming for the various teams to gather any valuable information from a lenghty battle report.
      1. Video Battle Report posts will be deleted
      2. Written Battle Report posts will be told to cut down on the text
    5. When posting observations be mindful to not make a gigantic report. Shorty descripe how the units performed and your [lexicon]general[/lexicon] feeling of the game.
    All of this sounds a bit harsh, but it's important you respect this. People are spending a lot of time gathering data from these reports. There have been feedback threads with over 100 posts worth of absolutely zero value for our data analysis team.
    Please understand that we do not do this to punish people or because we have issues. You have the necessary subforums and threads at your will, just be a bit more thoughtful when you post so you don't waste the time of someone else.



    The feedback threads are there so the various teams can gather the necessary information, so they can factor everything in when updating the armies.
    Should you be in a hurry you can post the following:
    • Victory points and armies (make it clear which army won)
      • i.e. Ogre Khans 5 : 5 Highborn Elves
    and post it either in the feedback thread or send it to either @Abrasus or tournament@the-ninth-age.com



    We've also updated the feedback template with the below information:

    Especially the victory points, armies and winner is essential for us.



    If you got any question(s) don't hesitate to ask.



    As always - keep up the good work
