A word from our fearless leader, Dave (CEO and Creative lead)!

This is a repost from A Word from Dave on City of Steam official website.
Not every company’s CEO is going to jump in the game with their players, but I believe as a small developer working on our first game, it’s critical for us to be listening to our players.
The closed beta test was a really great chance for me to get familiar with all the players, and smash out some quests, challenges and boss raids together. I got my main character up to level 32, and my alt to 27. It taught me a lot about what players want, where the improvements need to be made, what needs to be taken out and what gets the highest priority for Open Beta.
I want to extend a very warm and heart-felt thank you to everyone who filled out a survey, posted on the forums, talked to the devs in-game or contributed to the success of the tests. While I only chalked up a few hundred replies on the forums and in the game, I think I covered everything and carefully considered all the feedback. Yes, this really took me a long time! And sorry if I missed you out!
I feel kinda sad that my friend list will be deleted for Open Beta, but I’m hoping everyone will jump back online and add me again in the next live version. Please hang around for updates -I will try my best to give you regular info on the new developments!
Of the many many things we are going to improve and add to, several things we are really going to focus on for the next version:
Thanks again to our beloved playership for making this game the coolest MMO community I have ever been in. I hope we can both meet and exceed your expectations, and look forward to seeing you in Open Beta.
