    Ahh you must be on Twitter to know about or answer a poll. Great way to reach ALL of your players.

    LOL

    Your not alone.

    "For each stat below, tell how many points is approximately equal value to a +10 strength bonus buff.

    Pretend you were enchanting an item and the choice was between a +10 strength bonus and some amount of another stat, like health. How many points of health would it need to be to make you undecided as to which was more valuable. 50? 75? "


    How many points of health would it need to be to make you undecided
    WHAT?????????????

    1000? 350? 20?

    And the answer is....

    Depends on the build I'm working on.

    So much for that idea.

    I think I just figured it out.. it's like a this or that game.. where people pick +10 strength or something else?

    I think I'd need to know what +10 strength does first to my other abilities and character before I could gauge what I'd rather have.

    I'm confused, is this for the treasure map system or the new quest re-vamp?

    Also as someone has mentioned in his twitter, we would need decimals for some of the choices...
    Also depends on too many factors....
    What if im already at the strength soft cap?

    You would think a dev that is currently running the game would just look at the sota math and know instantly themselves....
    Also why ask only people on twitter.... who probably dont min/max the game at anyway and have no clue and their judgement would/could ruin the game?

    These specific kind of question should be directed at pvpers who dont like each other (to get a decent perspective of either side),
    and those who want to dumb down the game should be completely ignored when it comes to this kind of stuff.
    Maybe ask @Filter Bubble Algorithm or @Antrax Artek or @Dhanas .... oh wait one is banned and the others quit playing.... GG

    That's a terrible poll and will do NOTHING to help the game and actually feeds more into the concept that chris REALLY doesn't understand the game....

    OMG First time I've seen a Dev use a google doc for a poll via Twitter.
    "This poll is both for gathering player perspectives of relative values of in game statistics and also to help players realize how divergent player opinions are on these stats. I'll use these values to help sanity check my own values for item and skill balancing."

    So this is to "help players realize how divergent player opinions are" and Chris will use the answers to help skill balancing??
    After reading it all over about 10x I think I finally get what he is trying to find, yet are item stats the issue as to why skills aren't balanced???

    Another thing I noticed....
    You can get about 50str on a 2handed weapon with decent enchanting and masterwork skills and good lucky rolls, just for the sake of math, lets stick with the +50str....

    If @Chris were to stick to this poll and since we cannot put less than 1 move speed in the poll.... and some will troll with 1000 move speed..... and perhap the majority will not notice and bring the average to MAYBE "+2 move speed"..........................................

    IMAGINE HAVING +10 MOVE SPEED ON A 2HANDED WEAPON!!!!!!!!!!!!

    INSANITY

    Please throw the poll in the garbage bin and delete your twitter post A.S.A.P.!!!!

    I think the idea is that he's trying to get a relative value of different stats and buffs, so he can tweak the power levels of things. But it's too ambiguous. Especially since we don't really know how much half this stuff affects our builds under the hood and different build will completely change what is valuable. A for effort, C- for execution.
