I’ll keep this quick as I just wanted to make a couple comments on the latest Dev Diary on the new Vault. I really like the new vault and since I will most likely be buying more slots it will become much more useful. With all the icons, it can get hard to find things sometimes so the filters really do help.
However the part that I really wanted to point out was the discussion on the beta feedback. This new vault caused a HUGE uproar and I was quite impressed by how Turbine not only responded but let the players vent. This to me is the main reason why there are NDA’s as if that news had hit live, people would’ve gone even more ballistic and many would have not come back or at least the damage would have been done before Turbine had a chance to flesh out the system. In addition (I know this will come off as me being a fan-boi) but Turbine does seem to be more than willing to let people disagree with them and that the main reason they shut down threads is do to flaming. They didn’t completely change their course but I think their compromise shown below is a very good attempt to satisfy everyone.
It will take a bit to get used to the new vault, but overall it will be a more flexible and scalable system.
