    I love polls.

    But no forum poll can ever be scientific, and no game company can ever take action based strictly on a poll. Most polls suffer from some form of bias, and most of us here aren't trained in the mysteries of eliminating bias. Here are the basic problems:

    - Question bias ("have you stopped beating your spouse?")
    - Answer bias (where the answers support the viewpoint of the people asking the question, or where a reasonable person's answer is not listed)
    - Audience bias (where the people taking the poll are inclined to answer in a particular way)

    By virtue of posting on the forum for a game that has not launched, you are not the typical customer. You're an early adopter, a fan, and someone with a lot of passion. Your feedback is important, and your presence here is HUGE for us. We couldn't do this without you. We just have to make decisions with the entire future playerbase in mind.

    With that said... let's make and take some polls.
