    Reaperfan's Poll Project #5

    Post by Reaperfan on Sun Feb 19, 2012 3:15 am

    Hello, and welcome to Reaperfan's Poll Project! This will be a series of polls where I will ask various questions pertaining to some of the more touchy subjects in the game in an attempt to provide raw, numerical perspective on where we sit as a community. That being said, if any of these topics end up being too touchy, please keep conversation civil. The longer these polls last the more accurate the data becomes, so getting one locked early due to a flamewar will kind of kill the project. Discussion is welcomed, and in fact encouraged, just...please keep it at actual discussion and not flaming sad

    Question #5

    When balance changes are made, would you rather see overly powerful things get nerfed, or underpowered things get buffed?

    I am at a lack of understanding why the game needs to be changed.

    I agree there should be a neutral option. If changes are made I perfer to see under used things buffed and hopefully see more use.

    The neutral option is not voting in the poll, honestly. The question isn't about if you think the game is fine as is or not, the question is that, hypothetically, if the game were to change how would you like it changed.

    They aren't hoping to change anything, just satisfy a curiosity of mine and provide a perspective on how this community feels about certain issues.

    Have voted in all 5 polls, hope it helps.

    The problem with neutral ppl not voting is it gives a false idea of what ppl want.
    Say 10 ppl want buff, 10 want nerf and 10 want no change.
    Your poll would say 50% want buff, 50% want nerf. Which is not true, onlu 33% wants buff or nerf & 33% of the ppl have no voice.

    Thanks for participating, the more results the better happy

    This particular question is honestly only meant to be answered under the premise of the hypotheical situation that change is happening. My goal here isn't to find out how many people are fine with it as is, it's to find out how our opinions on a matter of possible change differ, and honestly if someone doesn't have opinions on a change then they aren't contributing to the result. I really don't mean this in a rude way, but I can't think of any other way to appropriately word the thoughts.

    I have indeed posted a few of these questions before on the old forums, but lack of an organized polling system and varying traffic made results unstable as a community thing. Results weren't entirely inconclusive, though participation was relatively small and not every member participated in every poll. I felt it would be worthwhile to repost these questions now that the polling process has become more streamlined.

    I think to be honest should be a both option reaper, because lots of things need buffing whilst others need nerfing

    Just my opinion and I am not trying to be critical. Maybe it is just the way my brain works but. The general question is which way should balance be applied across the board.

    So if someone chooses the overly powerful to be nerfed that still does not help the under powered items. Because by definition they are still under powered. In between the OP and UP there are the "balanced" items which are neither OP or UP. These items would still cause problems for UP because again by definition they are under powered.

    If you go the other way and and buff the under powered stuff then they move into the "balanced" range but OP will still exist.

    I don't know how else you could ask the question in order to take this into account. I will just vote for data purposes but I am not happy with my choice. happy I would vote to nerf OP. Which is probably what most will choose.

    That has nothing to do with the question.

    If, hypothetically you had to choose between something overpowered getting nerfed or something underpowered getting buffed, witch one would you prefer seeing?
