Give the people the things they don’t know they want…

Yeah, I said it:

Just enjoy the show. Sit back, relax and enjoy the rest of the fun that is to be had during this stretch of the CID being held by Privateer Press.

The good men and women at PP have introduced some interesting changes to the CID (which stands for ‘Community Integrated Development,’  for those not in the know..) and the masses have taken to their ideas in traditional Internet style. (*Insert random meme, here…no really.*)

The idea and purpose of the CID is to involve just about anyone willing to playtest, number crunch, or theory test their presented idea changes. In concept, I among many others like this change. It’s no secret that “internal” testing is limited and can even be argued as flawed. You’ll always have people looking to exploit changes once they go live, making a more public testing scene a very welcomed change! (Immediately after the “Bane” portion of the CID, we had people tossing around the idea of fielding 70+ Mechanithralls.)

This is like a “Alpha/Beta” test, but I feel done a little bit better. Why? Well Most Alpha/Beta tests feel like “Play with stuff, like this and let me know if something is broken.” Not the case here. Instead we ideas that the development team want to introduce, get to engage with them, and present out case(s) when we find a issue or flaw with the proposed idea. Can we exploit it? Lets talk about it. Does the idea have good intentions, but fall short of delivering? Lets talk about it. Are we not allowed to use all the cool widgets and tools we invested in? Lets talk about it. (*Picks up Pitchfork*)

In the past few weeks we’ve had the new Steam Roller 2017 changes introduced to the CID, a Bane Theme for Cryx (titled ‘Dark Host,’) & the proposed battle engine changes. Instead of doing a possible tl;dr, I will simply direct you to be an engaged individual and visit the CID forums for yourself. Why? The CID is a living & breathing creature. It changes, adapts, and moves. Twelve hours can have a significant impact on the information I could write about right now…plus it seems that Privateer Press has taken to respond to some Twitter comments doing the same…pointing people to engage in the CID itself. Without further wait, here you go:
