Pinned The Current Albion Online Round Table

    • The Current Albion Online Round Table

      Hey everyone,

      Some of you may or may not be aware of the existence of the Round Table. This topic is meant to shine some light on it, inform you of its purpose, as well as give you information on how you can become a member yourself.


      What is the Albion Online Round Table
      The Round Table is a designated forum additional to the public forum, and a point of contact to our team, that enables us to efficiently gather feedback and suggestions about the game’s existing and upcoming features from experienced and knowledgeable members of the community on behalf of their area of representation.


      What the Round Table is not
      The Round Table does not provide any in-game advantages for its members. For example, any upcoming changes that affect the in-game economy are also shared publicly at the same time. All suggestions made on the Round Table are placed under the same scrutiny by developers as any other feedback shared on the public forums.


      How do I join the Albion Online Round Table?
      In order to qualify, you must meet one of the following requirements:
      • Be a Guild Master of a guild that reached Silver, Gold or Crystal ranking in the previous Guild Season
      • Climb to the top of the Monthly Player Leaderboards
      • Be an otherwise notable figure within the community and contribute constructive feedback on the forum

    • Thanks for the info!
      Its nice to see some transparency about the round table because there are a lot of people that think its just a small club for devs friends.

      But whats exactly the difference between the round table and the feedback & suggestions section of the public forum?

      the feedback and suggestion section is mostly a one way discussion where players throw good or bad ideas around and the devs read them, while the round table allows the devs to throw raw ideas around making sure that they are not flawed like crazy and that they are not missing out on anything before making an actual plan that is then going public.


      And most people have a pretty wrong or bad idea of what the round table is.


      Long have we waited, for this, looking forward to it!

      Nice! Thanks for sharing the info!
      I dont think ill ever be invited cuz im not very polite in forums but its very nice to know that there is a place where things are discussed more deeply.
      I would also like to suggest that the Round Table also have a limited number of "observers". People that cant post or comment but can still read it to know whats going on. Maybe this way more people could participate on the decisions and discussions by reading them and then talking to anyone who actually can speak for them in the Round Table.

      As far as i know, a guild leader in the round table (or any member) is supposed to communicate with members of his side about the topics of the round table and use their attitude and feedback in combination with their own to generate a better oppinon, So there are kind of silent readers that kind of know whats going on, but not posting their own, because most of the times a guild leader and their officers have a similar mindset.

      On the other hand, we will see where evoque will bring this. I can just tell that this was pretty necesarry and im happy that evoque is taking it over and starting from scratch instead of trying to fix it.

      well then i think my suggestion would fit perfectly to improve this since i know that many guild leaders wont bring the round table subjects to their guildies, maybe only to some officers in some cases but most dont bring anything at all. Even because many guildleaders dont really care about their players and see them only as meatshields.

      and i couldnt agree more with you in your second statement.
      +1 for that.

    • @Evoque I think the round table idea is really important to the future of Albion Online and am glad to hear that SBI is investing resources to make it successful... I just hope you can include a balanced representation of the whole player-base as some of the most interesting people I have met in Albion do not play in a guild and have found their own little corner of the game to thrive in xD

    • Dont wona be rude...
      Am i the only one who think it is horrible idea?We got allready section of feedbacks and suggestions.We got small,very small and low forum activity.If you separate them and make "closed" to others with this round table,you might miss tones of good ideas.I dont argue that you will gather feedbacks from "normal" users.But how long it would be?Week,month,year?And after you will just elementary ignore them and focus on main "Round table"closed thread.
      People would assume that there is no reason to even post any ideas,after certain period of time.And again you migh loose great ideas.That how i see what would be if you make this "Round table"premium users squad.
      And ill repeat myself again
      -"We got small,very small and low forum activity.DONT SEPARATE THEM"
      @Evoque i hope you will read this

      The RT has been part of the forum for a very long time - just was not visible for not invited forum readers.
      Lately, it has been slacking a little due to the missing part between RT-Members and Devs - which is now (hopefully) filled by Evoque.

      And why should it be a horrible idea?
      I don't think it's bad if devs want to have more direct contact with the top players in specific fields.
      It's much easier to gather "good" feedback if you ask the 2-5 "leading experts" of some content, instead of asking the whole community where everyone wants to throw in his/her 2 cents.

      I think you missed another big difference:

      The average "knowledge-level" of the people on the RT is fairly high, which results in many good things, most importantly:
      - RT is filtered of the "generic or generally bad" ideas ^^
      There is a difference between reading very good and well thought through suggestions, and the common 2-liners one finds in the Suggestion-forums.
      - Actual "Discussions" happen from time to time - without the usual shit-posts or banter.
    • for suggestions though.. why not a 'square table'? :thinking: :/

      does it really need to be a 'round' Round Table?

      now there are some variaties there, maybe you want a Square Round Table?

      or.. a Round Square Table? ?(

      should interest exist in a Square Round Table, then I will make a feedback/suggestion Thread about it :huh:

      I feel like stellar posts like these should be a voucher for a Round Table seat on its own. This guy has the best feedback, hit him up.
