Welcome to the Poll!

It is a bit of an experiment I am making and I want this thread to be fun. ( because polls are fun! ).

 

Rules!

The rules are simple, I provide a list of stuff that could be improved in the game and you guys vote for what you think needs the most immediate attention. 

-Each person can vote for 3 things and no more.

-You can change your votes at any moment.

-You can also use one of your votes to add something to the list. Use this if you are not happy with the choices i listed or think i missed an important point. I will add it in the list and it will automatically have one vote. More people will then be able to vote for it too. 

-All choices have a number. To make it simpler for you and me, vote using numbers in Bold format. ( ex: I vote for 3, 5, 7 ) Unless you specify a new line of course.

-I will update all the results manually. And will try to do it at least once a day.

- NO ARGUING/WALL OF TEXT Plz. And I mean it, you can comment on things and express ideas but keep it brief and civil plz. If you feel particularly strong emotions or want to elaborate in details about a particular topic pls make a new thread about it.

-If you think my choices are totally off or that my idea of making a poll is retarded, plz tell me in a non flaming manner and I will try to do better in the future.

*Notes* I did not put "Fix bugs"  or "Improve balance" in the list because I feel it's just too generic beside being obvious and mandatory. I wanted the poll to produce more specific results. If this thread ends up being interesting, i will do more polls in the future.

That's it! Happy voting!

We need lots of additional spells.  I'm thinking about double what we currently have would be a decent start.

5, 2, X.

X = Return or re-implementation of the dynasty system. Mind you, this time balanced and more interesting.

I think RangerX7 voted a 3.

4 - Tech tree. I play these games for the tech tree, honestly. New tech = fun! Building your entire strategy around getting tech - even more so.


x -being fixing cities, to make them more enjoyable, personable, and fun, and less snaky. I'm thinking Civ here.

 

8 - AI. I always want to have an AI in a game that can cream me, and on its own merits. Having good AI makes a game infinitely repayable. I've stopped playing many a strategy game simply because the AI didn't challenge me.

I can't vote because it's more than 3 things for me right now.

For instance, without a performance boost I won't be able to play the game (I prefer large maps). Without substantial changes to research, city management and the magic system I won't probably be wanting to play the game.

Everything is doable but everything is necessary.

2, 8, x
x = Improve the UI (Caravan setup, don't bug me with guarding units, better hero screens etc.)

 

On a side note I originally wanted to post: hell doing that by hand I'll write you a nice ruby script but with people not exactly sticking to the rules and no clear way to define x manually indeed seems to be better.

I will present only one, it's not in the list, but I consider it the most important: Remove the chores!

Chore is everything that does not present interesting dilemmas for the player. As it is, building placement is a chore, you have to do it, but it really does not matter. Combat is a chore too, because it boils down to a row of melee units bashing each other, while the casters cast. Caravan micro is a chore too. Get rid of them, they make the game feel slow.

8 - a crappy AI is obscuring the gameplay mechanics (since every strategy is equally successful)

13 - I like building up the cities, but there's basically no reason not to build every possible building and the level-up special buildings don't do enough to make cities unique.

X - make the tech tree interesting.
