Communication between video game developers and players is essential, more so than people realize at times. Without communication, there can be little hope for hype regarding their title or hope that people will buy it. A very simple way to show that developers are listening to their audience is a Q&A. The team at Grinding Gear Games, who make Path of Exile, are going to go down that path once again.
If you have a question about Path of Exile itself, what goes into developing a title like Path of Exile, or want to know some things about Grinding Gear Games, this is the Q&A to watch out for. The team asks, however, for game mechanic questions not to be asked as they have a dedicated thread for those, handled by a dedicated member. If you do have a question in that field, you can ask it here.
The team does have some guidelines in terms of what questions to ask, and respectively asks that you follow them. For example, to check and make sure the question you’re asking hasn’t already been asked, as there’s nothing worse than a bunch of duplicates. Second, second make sure your questions are appropriate and phrasing your questions in a “constructive way”.
Or, if you’re having trouble coming up with a question, don’t be afraid to think outside of the box. In fact, the team is open to fun questions like “what games have you been playing?” or something simple and pure like that.
If you got a question about Path of Exile or the team behind it, just submit your questions. Answers will be given out sometime next week.
