Just a humble reminder/suggestion if you want your voice-of-customer to go through to GW's decision makers:

 

Remember GW's head of marketing is an ex-Microsoft Xbox guy.

 

https://uk.linkedin.com/in/bobbyddutch

 

He won't be reading all our comments, he probably has staff who skim over the for him, but they know their boss and will likely pass on up customer verbatims that would appeal to him.  See how he wrote his LinkedIn profile, he talks about partner ecosystem, change management, process management, etc., whereas other marketing types would talk about bring concepts and kicking off ideas and innovating.  I know this type, they're good guys, responsible, but they react to certain things.

 

In short, just a humble suggestion to know your audience as you're filling out the survey.  This is how change happens.

I name dropped B&C and asked for an official GW Twitter too.

Also mentioned Battlefleet Gothic any chance I could 😊. This old SWO wants naval battles back!

I made sure to text my friends about the survey, name dropped B&C, bragged about how many piles of money I spend on GW stuff per month, and then told them that my enjoyment would be most improved by a 40K AdMech transport with legs, not wheels or tracks :)

A decent first attempt. I sincerely appreciate the outreach on GW's part. Long overdue!

 

I do however wish they included more questions specifically related to gameplay and balance, points costs, etc. as opposed to leaving that up to the person taking the survey to point out specifically. Pure speculation, but the lack of anything really related to gameplay suggests to me that this is still really among their lowest priorities. 

 

Pure futility, but I couldn't help repeatedly mentioning their products are overpriced. :P

I kinda wish I could add to my answers. So mch stuff I forgot to mention. :P
At least I mentioned B&C two or three times as well. ^^

Disclaimer:

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.

 

So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

Losing 'hope' after 10k years just because of a big warp storm? Doesn't sound like my Blood Angels.

Never had hope to begin with; they had duty, and that was enough.

This is great, I really hope they publish the results in full.

I mentioned my dislike of Primaris twice and asked them not to squat regular Marines. I encourage all who feel the same way to do the same. And even if you don’t feel the same, do the survey - it might not make a difference but we can at least try and GW doing this is a positive thing.

I thought that was a nice survey, albeit long (comprehensive, though).

 

I'd love a voucher from them to go along with the 25 dollar one I got from FW in an old drawing.  Wonder if they could be combined?

I asked why Primaris and normal Space marines can't use each other's transports and weapons and why certain characters can use transports in 30K but not the same transports in 40k (that are still in great quantities in existence).

It is nice that GW starts doing market research, big change from few years ago, when it was claimed to not be needed.

"Felix wondered how Calgar might feel about the primach's unilateral altering of the Codex Astartes. The captain could not help but feel that, in his drive for victory and efficiency, Guilliman had been careless with the feelings of his existing sons. Increasingly, Guilliman looked to the Primaris Space Marines as his first solution. He made no attempt to hide the fact that the days of the older space marines were numbered."

I took it.
I criticized them about implementation of the new Primaris lore, but kept my opinions reasonable and civil.

I appreciated the fact this even exists so I tried to be as reasonable and honest as possible.  I mentioned I get all my news from community sites like this one, praised things like the painting tutorials and how things like shadespire and necromunda enhance the overall experience of the hobby.  I couldn't help myself and mentioned how I think rules and books are handled and implemented much better with AoS (free warscrolls, and free core rules, optional books.  Not carrying around rulebook, CA, index, codex) really couldn't help myself and jokingly added my requests for custodes 30k rules ports and deep strike back.  While I don't expect big changes (like the custodes stuff) I appreciate they seemingly want to know more of our habits and desires for the hobby.  Good move on GW's part with this imo
