@WAST3S: There is always going to be manipulation of mechanics and exploits of features in games. Its just a reality when anything involves people and while it should be taken into consideration when implementing any changes, the fact that some people will find exploits shouldn’t be a deterent to offer an improved feature. besides, they can work around that so that it isn’t the case in this situation, if it becomes one in the first place.
@JERLE there was plenty of drama at launch of POE. Not just about the camera angle. So much so that they actually looked into if it was possible to add a feature, but determined it was not feasible with the resources they had at the time. If it was not an issue, they would have never addressed it.
I was also there and I was in the industry working for ubisoft at the time and have worked for Square Enix.
Llama8: world of difference between a game’s interface and actual game mechanics and job ballance issues. Its a lot more nuanced than that. Any “normal” person would understand the difference. On a sidenote, nothing wrong with drama from job nerfs. But this topic is more about the UI and user experience and how it needs to be optimized. but thanks for trying to contribute.
RawSuicide: Its a game, comprised of several different elements that offer a collective experience. Not one single feature will be a “make-or-break” factor, but collectively things pile up and you either get a net positive experience or net negative experience.
There are a few other things I can say about the game that need improvement, for example the zones are very small. But this topic is about one specific aspect of the game, that might or might not get the attention of the devs.
Companies pay 3rd parties to get customer feedback because they recognize the value of it; a better product for their target audience.
Now while camera angle might not be important to those who are vocal here, that does not in any way represent the reality of the overwhelming majority. I’m not saying my opinion does either.
But its being shared regardless, because I paid for the game I am given that privlege as a customer. But good companies just hear from their customers, they also want to hear from potential customers.
While you all might be happy with the camera angle being fixed and set in stone, you wouldn’t be inconvinienced at all if there was an option to adjust it.
So be a little pragmatic and less emotional in your responses. You’re not getting anything taken away from you if they impliment such a feature, and in the contrary they could attract more customers and players resulting in greater revenue for them to add more content and allow you to enjoy the game longer.
