    i voted to increase the cap for raids. Dont really matter which you pick becuz if they raise one, they'll raise all the others. I'm glad I rushed myself to 70 so now I can concentrate on other things like more questing, writs, and helping other guildies! lol

    I voted for an increase in raid content and cap stay at 70. It was way to soon IMO to raise us to 70, we should still be 60 and working on AA's ( well those who don't grind them like the madmen we are). DoF was a broken expansion and still is, KoS is proving to be almost the same. Gear is seemingly slapped together by developer's children and FT/ Regen glorified as if it's the greatest thing since lich/archlich m1.
    If the different teams they have working on these things would just take a moment to reflect on how the classes performed in the previous tier and the gear/spells from that tier worked within the bounds allowed they would be able to correctly implement the next content without all these changes (nerfs) to our entire gameplay experience. They wouldn't have the hardcore raider type bitching and complaining about poor itemization and lack of content nor would they have the casual soloer/grouper complaining about why can't he have the same uber gear of captain leetsauce. ( well in theory they wouldn't complain...but um..yea)
    There would still be content unbeatable in the current tier, except maybe by those guilds who are better geared, coordinated and can put in the time to learn the encounters. But to increase the lvl cap again with some KoS AA's screwed up and the upcomming EoF AA's still lacking the flare they so desperately need, and lets not forget the changes to many of the classes themselves, would be a total mistake on SOE's comitment to us the consumers.

    I don't know how anyone who complains about lack of content can ask for a level cap increase.

    I wish they could add some real progression and keep us at level 70 for maybe another year.

    Of course, in order to do that there simply NEEDS to be a raid oriented expansion. KoS raid content is used by record numbers of players, there is no good reason to be be completely leaving that behind and telling people to go roll fae's.

    Sadly the perfect lifecycle for a tier should be:

    Expansion 1 - Level increase + solo/heroic content. Just a couple raids.

    Expansion 2 - No level increase. Half solo/group content. Half raids.

    Expansion 3 - No level increase. Mostly raids. Very little solo/group content.

    In between it would be nice to have an adventure pack to bridge the gaps a little more.

    AP 1 - 75% solo/heroic, 25% raid.
    AP 2 - 75% raid, 25% solo/heroic.

    As an alternative, the level increase could be spread out amongst the expansion, so maybe 5 levels with number 1, 3 levels with number 2, and 2 final levels with the third expansion.

    The key is to make ample content for all playstyles. By expansion 3, a casual non raider should have grown bored with expansion 1 and be ready for expansion 2 at the least. If they are already there, expansion 3 and the AP right before it has enough new content to keep you going until the new tier begins the cycle aagain. As a raider, you should still have some stuff from the previous tier that you need to farm and possibly even a previously unbeatable encounter or 2 so that while there is limited raid content in expansion 1, it opens some doors from the previous tiers expansion 3. Then of course expansion 2 and 3 get better and better for you.

    (I have no idea where this all came from, most of my posts come from the top of my head, and this one seems like a good idea to me )

    Anyways, I wish I could say your poll there is a good example of what the player base wants, but I know in my head that the high end raid scene is overwhelmingly represented on these boards since so many of us have become dissolutioned with the SOE ones.

    You're sounding awfully conciliatory.

    Becuz with a cap increase they'll have to add more content otherwise what's the point really? Stuff turns grey soon enough. Especially with you Hurry-gotta-get-to-70 bunch...
