I read in the last community update that there will be mention of MR2 in April.
Would it make sense to set up a separate subcategory in advance? If the game is released as a separate game in it's own right perhaps a subcategory redirecting to the new game forum (or set a category up now to make moving posts easier in the future).
I know that Focus have no duty to do so, but I would have really really liked some kind of feedback as to what features could be expected to be included in MR2 and what not. I know this opens a potential minefield and flame war from some, but I think most MR players and fans are pretty pragmatic, and it's often easier to accept disappointments if you felt you were at least involved in the discussion.
There are so many interesting things that have been discussed on forum from perspective of game ideas, that it would have been nice to see some kind of managed feature list discussion. I think the developers are excellent but the community here is awesome too, and it's rare to see both come together in a truly collaborative way. Were Focus to take this decision, I think it would result in a better game overall and certainly allows a better management of expectations as and when the release date is finally upon us.
Community managers, you want to ask us some questions? Rather than 'which is your favourite map/challenge'? How about you guys create a 'NEW feature list' and ask the community to score from 1 to 20.
Forgive me in advance if I already missed such a post. I would be happy for someone to redirect me.
