The weekly DB Guild Summits provided an unprecedented opportunity for the player community to engage the DB Team directly, through some months when the game needed it most. We appreciate the time Eej (and Dillon) spent on LINE those weekends, and during the week, discussing, researching and answering our questions. Although the development team no longer has the resources to continue regular communication in such a direct manner, they have offered to establish a new process to answer the community's questions, in a Question & Answer (Q&A) format.
In this new Q&A process, questions will be generated in the "DB Q&A" LINE chat (formerly the Summit Debate Group, or SDG, chat) and then submitted weekly to the DB team. After the developers have researched the questions, answers will be posted here on the DB Forum, and communicated back to the LINE chat as well. This will allow the community to continue to discuss DB issues in real-time, as well as provide and receive feedback to the DB team about current events in the game. The DB Guild Summit chat will not be part of this process, but will remain in its current form in case of future need.
Unlike the Summits, which were limited to GM +2 per guild, the DB Q&A chat is open to all serious participants. The same rules of common respect and appropriate behavior as here on the Forum are expected in the LINE chat. If you would like to join the DB Q&A chat--and don't already know someone there who can invite you--you may contact a member of the Summit Admin team, via our LINE IDs listed below.
Please let us know if you have questions about the new process. Thanks to everyone who has participated in both the Summit and SDG discussions--our feedback continues to help the game improve!
