Here are some prompts:

Is there anything you would change about the tournament setup?
Is there anything you'd like for us to keep doing?
Feel free to address anything else about the tournament as well. Thank you!
Before making a post, please keep this in mind.
What is it?
Constructive criticism is being able to process and offer your own thoughts and opinions in order to give courteous and friendly feedback. This is done by explaining what you like and dislike, while at the same time providing feedback that is useful. This is what separates constructive feedback from ranting/complaining and flaming.
Does it help? How?
Yes! Constructive criticism helps because not only are you giving feedback about what you don't like about a quest/event, but you're also giving feedback about what you DID like in the quest. Feedback could include on such topics as statistics, more dialogue, more explanatory cutscenes, more fights - everything that quests or events would normally include. This gives the staff a better idea on future improvements.
Example of Constructive Criticism:
"I didn't particularly like this war because it felt too empty. To have made it better, I think the staff could have had a 50% cutscene to unlock rather than just a shop to progress the storyline. As it was, I personally was a little disappointed that this war felt more rushed than previous wars, however I do understand that the staff had a lot on their plate when making this release. That said, I greatly enjoyed the boss fight, the animations and art fit perfectly with the song that was playing in the background. So while not one of the best wars DF have done, I still enjoyed it. Thank you, DF staff!"
Example of Unconstructive Criticism:
"I didn't like this war at all. What were the staff thinking? The items in the shop were ugly, overpriced and were bugged!! No cutscene? That was never done before and it is not how it should be done ever. Seriously, doesn't the staff ever listen to us?! The boss fight was too hard and took forever to beat :( And there was no sound. I dont think the staff even care anymore. Best war ever /sarcasm I hate this game D:<!"
Upcoming Tournaments and future plans for the OverSoul GD!
So here's what were thinking for future tournaments. The next tournament is most likely going to be CHAOS! Given its timing on being release and we would want to make sure we have elements done before going into the special tournaments types. Granted their will be factors. Mainly how many characters are available to everyone. If we don't have enough we will wait a bit. Since were assuming it will have new mechanics. This should give all players equal playing field as we the community figure the element out. Any restrictions will most likely be the normal ones we ban for neutral but don't hold me to that. We still need to see what the characters do. The other tourney ideas were playing around will be duel elements characters, maybe a character specific tournament, or Starter Wars(an all starter character tourney).
So leave your feedback on this tournament and thoughts on what ya want to see down the road.
