Deadfire Polishing Thread has been opened for 3 weeks by now, and we gathered enough feedback for a dedicated poll.

And the idea behind this poll is to filter through the community-originated fine-tuning suggestions and cut those that didn't make it past a certain threshold of unanimity.
After that, the resulting list could be used as some sort of survey data, and maybe it will get attention from Obsidian, or it will be of use for modders (if these suggestions are moddable)






Deadfire Polishing Poll
(link to google forms)
(google login is required to keep 1 submission per person account)
(your emails are kept private and not shown to other participants or poll owner)





P.S. Results will be posted in this thread.
There is no set end date for now. But approximately the poll will last 7-10 days unless otherwise noted.

Edit: the Poll has ended. You can check the RESULTS: HERE


Or if google analytics is opening slowly, here are the screenshots:

Completed.

And thank you for all the work !

 

If I may ask, I had released a thread on PoE1's forum about an hypothetic balance patch.

(which was a kind of follow up of PoE1's Rogue & Barbarian Polishing Thread / Poll...)

 

https://forums.obsid...-a-balance-mod/

It didn't have much success (actually zero success :closed: ), maybe because I admitted it was mostly hypothetic, maybe because people were more interested by PoE2 at this time, maybe because it was too long or maybe because because it was simply bad for some other reasons  :getlost: .

 

 

If by chance, you could take a couple of minutes to have a look at it.
My apologizes for hijacking your thread with my request.
Feel free to ignore.

I voted! Well not for all, but most. Great work putting this together!

A random thought - maybe at some point ask what a user's top three fixes are, and if you see a pattern, prioritize those. I'm sure leveling up in one go has a chance to be up there.

Obsidian has moved on with this game. Even if they want to make changes based off this survey, it won't be profitable for them to do so. It's unlikely for this game to receive further support.

There will be one last patch. It was promised and they know if they leave the game, a crowdfunded game, in this state, there will be a big black mark on their record, and their reputation will slowly be tarnished by the plague that is the angry gamer. Similar to Bioware releasing a messy Andromeda -> Anthem, I predict Obsidian crashing hard if they lose track of their fans and customers. Only time will tell how Outer Worlds turns out, which could be their saving grace...or another microtransactions crapfest within a derivative world.

i would certainly hope not given that TB is still beta and the current broken state of the game.

Umm it is lol.

Depends how one defines "broken".

But since some core mechanics are not working since TB was introduced I'd say it is. For example: You can't remove Afflictions by Inspirations or suppression in most cases.

It will start and run though. So some may argue it's broken when it doesn't do that anymore.

Thank you all for voting :)

We have 17 submissions by now.

P.S. I've also noticed that there were 6 submissions done to the Sneak Peek version of the poll, and wanting to note that this poll is a new, separate instance with extra options. So if you placed a submission there, feel free to vote here again. It won't be considered a duplicate.

@Elric Galad, I'll take a look later.

A random thought - maybe at some point ask what a user's top three fixes are, and if you see a pattern, prioritize those. I'm sure leveling up in one go has a chance to be up there.

Judging by current responses, bugs related to afflictions and aoe weapons are mostly voted as high priority)

^ Aha, so my feeling that something is missing was right :grin:

Although I don't see the names or emails of submitters I can tell which submission is yours just by the answers ^^

That said I'm mostly surprised by your choices regarding Bitting Whip and all monk related suggestions.

P.S. Regarding Aegis of Loyalty: I've checked it in beta, on release and in v1.2. It was working only with unarmed (fist) attacks.

P.P.S. Some nice unanimity regarding racial suggestions:

Now what about that Stag's Carnage? Is there a more obvious fix needed :p?

Do you have to live so relentlessly in the real world?!

I hope for more achievements and one additional megaboss.
