Dear Dev-Team - I was the last few weeks very busy so I write now:
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR GREAT AND SUPER AWESOME WORK !
My wife and I wanted to tell you many many thanks, for just everything! We finally owe it to you that we can continue to battle in WAR. We would like to take the chance and ask you in this thread a few questions - I apologize in advance when I express myself something unclear, my english is not the best.
1# Please be a Patreon!
I know you probably can not hear it anymore BUT: I know you do not want any money from us to support you, however, I feel bad about Yaliskah when he has to pay monthly from his own money for that we can continue to use the server.
So here is my question: Is it really enough that these costs are paid ONLY by the ads or does he still have to pay?
I know Wargrimnir was against it in another thread but why do not you register as a patreon? Anyone who would like to support you at least on a voluntary basis monthly, eg. To cover the server costs. In your work on the game we can not help you otherwise and would like to help you at least a bit - you finally work on it rather instead of just logging in and pulling joyfully into the pvp-zone.
My wife and I were both of the opinion that we would rather support you monthly (with 12-20 €) as an subscription in another game, you would have earned it for your long-time hard work on this great project!
2# Preview function and maybe a skin-change for armor and weapons?
In Warhammer, there are an incredible number of awesome armor and weapons.
In games like Wildstar and Tera there is a armor preview which shows me how to look the linked items from quests and traders before i buy them - are you planning to introduce something like this in the future? Or do you know an addon that allows this so far I've found none. We belong to the players who do not only go to the stats but also to the look of the armor / weapons.
Or perhaps you would prefer a transmutation of Armor and Weapons into others (just like in guild wars 2/ World of Warcraft eg) rather than this.
Only a thought but at least it remains for you whether you would like something like this at all.
3# In how far can you change the game and add new things that did not exist before like new races/classes?
We find your work at the emulator great, however, we do not know how the whole works or what you can circumscribe / change or insert which was never before in the game, nor do we know how eager these individual works are at all.We also do not know how difficult these individual tasks are for you, we finally see only the (almost ;D) finished game and not the work behind it.
In an old thread I read that it was not 'really' difficult to implement the Skaven as a playable race with armor / weapons / careers /classes (not as this sc skin-buff) into the game.
Of course, we would find it cool, we love non-human races but here now my question: Would you ever intend / want new races/classes in the future? Or maybe add more vanity pets like the Warlord's Fell Hound ( my wife LOVE pets xD) ?
Since the Skaven as race of you are probably not particularly wanted, how would it be with others?
Maybe Beastmen, Daemons of Chaos and Vampire Counts for Destruction and Wood Elves, Lizardmen and Bretonnia (instead of Bret maybe Ogres?) for Order?
Big text from me I know but rather detailed instead of missing something.
We respect your work and we did not want to annoy you with our questions.
