Swen himself said they’ve been gathering feedback from the subreddit and this forum.
I believe the actual question here is how they do that ... there is many topics that have 15+ paiges ... do they read it whole, or just OP? :-/
Not sure if every single post is duly noted... But we know mods (The Composer anyway) make notes of forum feedback and since they, well, moderate, they at least read a good portion of the forum posts.
Well ... When i see last patch ... i can definietly tell that they listened to most people who were angry about amount of spells in hotbar ... and they also definietly listened to their sugested "hex-like pop-up menu" solution ... But since they completely scraped everything they created before. :-/ Im not quite sure if they simply didnt read reactions of that second group of people who liked it as it was ... or simpy choose to ignore them.
What is most confusing for me is the question why there even need to be only one system, since those two dont colide. :-/
