We started the Dev Diary back in March, 2015. For years now, we knew that there needed to be another way to communicate directly with our Elsword players, and not just about content, updates and the shiny, happy things. We wanted to communicate our intentions, our ups, downs, mistakes, wins and failures. We wanted to communicate about all things Elsword. From Concept to Development, from Content Execution to Publishing and everything in between. We want our players to see another side of KOG. Now, this is still a work in progress, and something that will expand and become bigger than it is over the next few months.
A relatively well known New Year’s tradition is throwing out the old and bringing in the new. Basically, nobody is as aware of the slips, mistakes, flops, duds and blahs as we are. There are a number of things that we’ve tried that just plain didn’t work all the way to some things that were perfectly executed on the first go. This isn’t about opinions on what content or functionality was popular vs what wasn’t, it’s about what worked as intended vs what did not, but the feedback always came from within, the tireless and dedicated men and women of KOG that pour massive amounts of time, energy, passion, blood, sweat and tears into everything we do. As amazing as that sounds, we know that we’re far from perfect, we are human, and that it’s time to think outside the box and make it apparent that we hear our players, and we think they should hear us as well.
We have many, super dedicated players from around the world that have seen things we didn’t. They’ve caught things we’ve missed, they’ve got great feedback and intuition about many different aspects of Elsword that we may not have initially considered. Enter : The Elsword Dev Diary.
We’re on our forums, social networks, In-game and we read each and every ticket that is submitted via our web based Customer Support; yes… the suggestion ones too. We sincerely appreciate all the activity, conversations and in many ways, we even appreciate the heated debates. Being able to use this Dev Diary to centralize our feedback and progress with what’s going on in Elsword will help us a great deal in being more transparent with all of you as well as give you a place to get the scoop on exclusive, Elsword feedback.
Thanks again to all of our dedicated Elsword players.
We wish you an amazing holiday season and a Happy New year.
