Super Survey - A Few Extra Realism Questions
We’ve had more than 500 responses to our Verdun survey
(you can still fill it in if you haven’t already!) and it’s been very informative. Some answers are what we expected while others surprised us. We’re hoping to do a more detailed write up of the findings and our plans in the future, but for now there was one particular question we wanted to go into a little more detail on.
This was the question about whether you felt Verdun should be more realism focused or more arcade focused, on a scale from 1 to 5, with 1 being maximum simulation and 5 being maximum arcade. Unsurprisingly the majority opted for realism, with 74% of you going for 1-2, and another 20% for 3.Trenches by night, taken by player Anubis6A.
While it’s good to confirm our expectations, we’re now looking for more details about what you mean when you say you want the game to be realistic, especially those of you who picked 2 or 3, which suggests that you don’t want the game to be accurate in every respect.
With that in mind, we have a super-short bonus survey
! If you could rate how important you think realism is in a few different areas it would really help us make the right choices. Fill out the survey.
Last question, we promise. Except for… more on this later!
We recently released updates with a number of fixes, tweaks, and other improvements. Of particular note:
- The ‘clay soldiers’ are gone.
- The stats of all bayonets now match.
- In Tannenberg players can now choose which type of artillery they call in from phones - smoke, explosive and gas are available.
