Obviously some feedback on feedback would have been great but I understand why they want to keep silence. People just get angry if they are bluntly told that their ideas are horrible and won't be implemented.

I get angry when they specifically ask us to give feedback on the evil path and then it turns out it's barely implemented and on top of that we get a mailed update saying "74.85% of you stood with the Tieflings, and 25.15% of you sided with Minthara. Good outweighs evil, it seems. " See the multiple evil path threads why.

I agree with you, of course. However, in the recent interview Swen said that their writers tend to be good aligned and always forget to include proper evil options. I understood it as follows. The writers told Swen that they made a wide variety of evil options and they are proud of it. Swen went on on the dev stream to encourage players to try the evil path his writers so proud of because he knows what their tendencies are. Consequently, if they read the feedback Larian should note that and fix it. It doesn't mean, however, that they need to follow suggestions by some random guy from the forum who is angry because his own "very important" suggestion wasn't implemented in the game. Regarding the "good outweighs evil" line I just hope that this is the personal take of the writer of that post and not an official Larian position. Time will tell.
