  • Yes. Sorry my vacation (and preparation for it) kinda got in the way. It felt wrong to announce the new members right before flying out of the country.

    I'll be sending out e-mails to selected people this week to confirm that they're still interested and willing, then next week we'll all learn who the newly added Player Council members are.

    Interesting, I wonder who the lucky contenders will be... this is exciting news for me.

    I just hope there won't be people in the player council that have showed their hate for others in the forums.

    Being knowledgeable is good but if they are the first one to create distintions between players becuase the don't think as them or they don't play as good as them then I don't see anything good about that.

    So far the council members that I see on forums have tryed to be imparcial or at least being open minded, only I saw one who showed his hate against others but that was only one time and never saw him posting more about that topic.

    Would be good that new council members can be taken seriously for feedback and they don't focus only on end game or hardcore content but also include their thoughts about the learning curve in lvl content and Solo content.

    Hope EME consider them as the voice of the comunity and not as some kind of postmen.

    Spacecats explained it in this post he made for new applications. The TL;DR is that we're here to help gather feedback and report it to eme. Most player council members have a blue badge like mine on their avatar so people can identify us. I dont know of an update list of names. We have a discord where we also have discussions and sometimes Spacecats stops by, too. https://discord.gg/7DfrhWK

    Counterpoint is already on the player council. He just doesn't use the icon.

    Something generally not understood is the purpose of the Player Council isn't to really to just forward feedback. Either member that volunteer to do so could help with organizing community events and the like and have requests for rewards brought to Spacecats and a proper way rather than having a bunch of people spam him and get no attention. Other things that are done are other forms of organization such as bug reports (which unfortunately I fell behind on due to being very sick), reporting issues that are prevents players from playing that can't be detected, such as Dreamstorm needing to be disabled, and a few other things.

    Although the focus being mostly on feedback and needing to "fix" things is due to failure on multiple fronts. It was never really explained as a focus point, and neither of us really openly showed us doing much of anything beyond event and game feedback. The other issue is we don't really have roles and are 'general purpose' with only our experiences and who we associate with being our specifics. Generally, misunderstandings all around.

    Hopefully with additional members it can improve, as there's not many of us due to most of the firs group being largely inactive since the beginning.

    I think that misunderstanding has continued well into the application process (even after my description in the sign-up thread). Gathering player feedback and sending it to us is fine, and we do appreciate getting a heads up on a lot of stuff from council members, but we already have these forums, chat channels, and a half dozen other places to get feedback.

    A lot of responses to the "Why are you interested in joining the council?" question (which to me was one of the most important questions) boiled down to "I'm an experienced player and I have the best ideas for how to improve TERA." Which, aside from not really telling us much about yourself, is also the wrong way to approach the idea of the council. If you have great ideas for TERA and all your fellow guildies or whatever agree with you, but you haven't posted it in the forum or presented it to EME in any way, why would becoming a Player Council member suddenly change things? Just tell us your ideas already!

    Everybody who plays TERA has ideas on how to improve it. Player Council members are just volunteers. They aren't paid for, responsible for, or have any way of implementing actual game client or server changes, bug fixes, new features, or anything like that. Even we at En Masse ultimately need Bluehole to make those kinds of changes. That's why Player Council is more about promoting community excellence / cool player activity, and less about addressing game issues.

    I appreciate the thought. However, i am not part of the Player Council, and i did not submitted an application for it this time around. That however does not stop me from keep doing what i do.
