What is your favorite thing about Voltra as a website? Why?
I like that there's girthy forums, makes designing threads for it easy. and i like that we have the ability to toggle themes
What is your favorite thing about Voltra activity wise? Why?
HMMM... hard not to sound biased here. I have a lot of fun during events, I mainly like it when users are able to have a good time and be entertained o: its fun seeing everyone have fun! and I like our items, we have a wide variety of aesthetics in our pixelists and there's something for everyone
What is your least favorite thing in general and why?
inventory load time (which wont be an issue for much longer anyway!) and that I can't appear as offline/hide my activity
but I also just like privacy so probs just me...
What has been your favorite event? Why?
cirque ad infinitum, it killed me but it was the most satisfying to pull off. it was really self indulgent I'll be honest HAHA but it seemed like a lot of people were invested in the story and games and items. it wasnt perfect by any means but I'm proud of it. ;'3c
I liked wonderland too but that one killed me...
What has been your least favorite event? Why?
hard to say hmmm.... maybe v day, merely because I wasn't really able to participate in it much so I missed almost all of it? no fault of the event itself.
a non cop-out answer using events I was a part of... maybe breaker beach '18, since there wasn't a whole lot going on
Which aspects of those events made you have those opinions?
aesthetics is a key factor honestly, but I think more than anything having a strong foundation is what makes for an engaging event. it should have a good and involved story, but it also needs to be presented in such a way as to not be too overwhelming. something that's easy to follow without feeling like you're being bombarded or just reading a story, feeling like you're a part
of the story is always a lot more exciting.
it also needs to have a clear focus and a set up and pay off that feel earned.
that being said, you also want to have a good balance of activities too! from experience, I think it's always good to consider what the mood of the event is going to be, sometimes a contest is appropriate, sometimes a participation thread works better. whatever the approach, it has to be fun and engaging! user feedback never should be ignored also, people hate doing math I GUESS...
What would you change about them, if anything?
like the dream would be to be able to implement more coded features but with all the demand right now, that's definitely should be the least of the devs concerns kjdhkjd
Do you find it difficult to learn about the NPC?
I think I'm like the only one that knows everything so I can't answer this fairly...
What would you like to see more in terms of developing the NPC?
ways to explore them outside of events honestly... like comics would be cool I know people want them BUT... SOWWY...
Do you prefer more interactions between two or more NPC or do you prefer more solo stories to get to know a specific NPC one at a time? Why do you prefer that?
I like both! I don't think it's an either or, whatever feels appropriate, But I guess I'd prefer interactions, it's fun seeing how characters play off each other. I like when they're able to be outside their comfort zone and interact with characters they don't usually hang out with, too.
Who is your favorite NPC?
big baby bias comes though... Virgil and Io are my faves... ;'3c
What is it about them that you like the best? What do you like the least? What would you like to see them do in the future?
I made them
no I kid. I like Virgil because he adds a different dimension to the cast that would otherwise be missing. He's he cynic, the outsider, he brings a different perspective to an otherwise very positive group. There's a lot to explore with him, especially with how closed off he is. What's he hiding? tune in to find out.
and I like Io because he's one of the more aesthetically pleasing to look at ;'3c but I also just really like how his backstory came together, his tragedy, the strength and weakness he had and still has... and I wanna see more from him. I wanna see his recovery and redemption... ;'3c
Who is your least favorite NPC?
I mean I'll be real, we meme on it but it's probably Volkan HAHA... there was just something about his personality when he was introduced that put me off. or maybe it's just my predisposition to hate mayor characters (down with Mayor Lewis!)
What makes you not like them as much? What would you change about them, if anything? Is there any quality of them you do like? Would you prefer to see less of them, or would you like to see more and see them develop in a different way? Which way would you suggest that be?
oh I realize I kinda answered this already HAHA... uhh LIKE there's potential in him for sure. I like the idea of a warm father figure character that cares about the city. he just needs to be less creepy... especially in regards to his daughter and telling stories about how she was made LIKE BUDDY DON'T I'M INNOCENT-
What do you think of the realms?
boy howdy we sure need those huh...
Do you think Voltra should focus on developing the realms more? Do you want to learn more of are you not interested at all?
YEAH SURE DO SURE IS SOMETHING THAT I SHOULD BE DOI-
If they are developed, what sort of things are you most interested in learning about them?
Would you like to see Voltra visit any of the realms in an event? Which realm would you choose if it were up to you? Why?
sure do.... this ain't spoilers or hinting at anything, I'm just gunna say Ice since its the realm I know most about personally and am most interested in HAHA
What kind of features do you think Voltra is lacking?
a few things that probably won't show up for a long time (understandably!) ... so like, marketplace, charges, realms.... hmmm oh report feature would be rad...
OH AND HM, A FREAKIN' KNOWLEDGE BASE I WONDER WHOS FAULT THAT IS *SHAKY LAUGHTER* I'msosorryeveryone....eventually....
also a lot of other stuff that's waiting on me... I gotta step it up...
What would you like to see made next?
probably a report feature just to make things easier on people
Do you think they should focus on developing past features that were announced, or should they focus on developing different, new ideas? Why?
past ones... mainly so it'll be less things on their plate. also they would be fun to have
Any other general thoughts that you might want to share that you have not been asked yet?
... nah das all
