I don't think any sane individual would even accept such a nomination nor want to engage in the task afterwards.
^^^^^This is the truth. Look at the bludgeoning Max gets. Have people really forgotten who he was? They ae front line people providing customer service and communication. I really don't know how Max and Rai and the others do it.
For those thinking WG is refusing to listen to you, particularly about balance:
People say they want transparency all the time now--it's a buzz word. People say they want transparency from WG, that they want to understand why WG makes the decisions they make. That is not what they, the players, really want. What they really want is to substitute their judgment for WGs. What they are really saying is, "Give me the info. Let me use my own values to judge what the decision should be, then do what I say based off of my values." No one will ever convince someone or win an argument if the difference is VALUES. People really aren't asking for transparency, they are demanding power in the decision making.
WG like any business is balancing various interests/values of their customer base--i.e. how can WG profit the most. How will WG providing the information, particularly if it will offend the inquirer, benefit WG?
Now for those baying for balance changes, consider and find some comfort in this: Abrupt changes would shock the player base. Subtle changes over time are more acceptable. The player base may not be able to survive a major shock. We had the intro of the 2nd Brit TD line. Some view ranges have since changed. Now we have the intro of the Grille which has less alpha. From what many have posted, the Grille is underpowered. BUT WG will now be able to compare it against all the other non-TD 10s and the T9 TDs. Perhaps they will find reasoning for some T10 TDs to get their alpha cut some based on the new data. Maybe some other view ranges of T9s will be adjusted. Gradual is the way to go, so others can accept. Can you accept waiting for these changes if it means a healthier player base?
