edited April 25 in PVKII Discussion

Please note the survey data has been presented in a way so it’s easier for you to consume, rather than showing you the generated spreadsheet with thousands of answers. We’ve done our best to categorize things, some values are approximated/ rounded up, and responses that don’t fit into categories are placed into OTHER with the most common answers listed. 

What Country are you from? (Required Question)

This question should have been asked “What region or continent are you from?” to better display data breakdown. We’ll break it down this way for you approximately. 

~465 Players (~45%) Europe
~359 Players (~35%) North America
~89 Players (~9%) Asia / Middle East / Russia
~60 Players (~6%) South & Central America
~32 Players (~3%) South Asia / Oceania
~12 Players (~1%) Africa
Other/ Not Disclosed (~1%)

How many Steam hours do you have in PVKII? (Required Question)

This question should have included number ranges to make it easier for you to choose. We are aware that Steam hours may not be fully accurate to actual play time.  

(Sorted by Lowest to Highest by Hours)

541 Players (52.5%) - 0 to 99 Hours
149 Players (14.4%) - 100 to 199 Hours
95 Players (9.2%) - 200 to 299 Hours
53 Players (5.1%) - 300 to 399 Hours
36 Players (3.5%) - 400 to 499 Hours
20 Players (1.9%) - 500 to 599 Hours
17 Players (1.65%) - 600 to 699 Hours
14 Players (1.35%) - 700 to 799 Hours
10 Players (.97%) - 800 to 899 Hours
4 Players (.38%) - 900 to 999 Hours
24 Players (2.3%) - 1000 to 1499 Hours
22 Players (2.1%) - 1500 to 1999 Hours
31 Players (3%) - 2000+
14 Players (1.35%) Other (not measurable, qualitative answers)

Great diversity of experience, providing a lot of input from newbies, experienced, and vets. Just more than half of the players who completed the survey have fewer than 100 hours. It was important to know Steam hours as we can see them next to all of your proceeding answers, so we can see if ideas are coming from a new, experienced, or vet players.

    How did you discover PVKII? (Required Question)
    Forms response chart Question title How did you discover PVKII You may wish to be more specific by choosing Other ie I saw Ferhods No Time to Waste Youtube Trailer Number of responses 1030 responses

    Majority of players discovered PVKII through Steam either as a recommendation, stumbling upon it, or seeing the Recently Updated marketing plug. Word of mouth, telling a friend/ family member about the game is still a significant part of our marketing of the game. Youtube is surprisingly low at a combined 7.7% We do know Youtube brings in players, though perhaps not sustainably according to Steam Stats.

    When do you play PVKII? (Not Required Question) (1027 Responses)

    Forms response chart Question title When do you play PVKII Number of responses 1027 responses

    Sorted Highest To Lowest

    210 Players (20.4%) - I don’t play anymore *
    175 Players (16.6%) - A few Times a Year
    131 Players (12%) Rarely (+16 more maybe)?
    125 Players (12.8%) - A few Times A Month
    66 Players (6.4%) Only after every major update for a short time
    55 Players (5.3%) Almost Everyday
    51 Players (4.96%) 1 or more Weekdays
    42 Players (2.33%) Weekdays and Weekends (Frequently)
    37 Players (3.6%) Once a month
    23 Players (2.2%) Everyday
    21 Players (2%) Only on the Weekends
    19 Players (1.85%) Only after every update for a short time
    6 Players (.58%) Only after I see Official news posts/media, dev journals
    3 Players (.29%) Only when I see scheduled community plays (Play with Devs & Testers, etc)
    56 - Other/ Uncategorized (i.e. random, lan parties, intermittently, etc.) 

    While it may seem at first glance the highest percentage shows 20.4% for “I don’t play anymore”, you have to take into account the fact that every number is a unique survey entry. A total of 354 players, approx 34%, in this survey participate in the game consistently. That being said, it is important for us to know why you don’t play the game anymore. This should’ve been a required question.. We did our best to try to measure to see how often you play and when you play.

    *Some mentioned in other that they "didn’t play anymore" so we added it here raising the percentage.

    Do you continue to play PVKII or have you lost interest? Why? If you continue to play, what brings you back? If you have lost interest, what would bring you back? (This Question is Optional) (799 responses)

    Common Reasons for Losing Interest (Sorted Highest to Lowest Based on Frequency in Results)

    1. Many have lost interest because of lack of updates, new features, and lack of players and servers. A majority note a larger player base would bring them back.

    2. Too much island. Desire for more vanilla and custom map rotation.

    3. Lacking servers with good ping in my region (South America, Australia, Asia)

    4. Need a rank system and good players to challenge but also matchmaking to play with players of similar skill because some new fans get easily discouraged. Leaderboard as well as rewards and progression.

    5. Need more replay value, players feel they “see all they need to see” and game gets repetitive

    6. Competing for time. Hard to compete with new games, some noted they want new graphics or a new game. Some players have moved on, busy with work, and have families.

    7. There is no golden community, a lot of people leave games because of toxic players

    8. Concerns about team/class/map balance

    9. Game changes: some players have issue with aspects of the game being too silly i.e. Man At Arms Special. A few players are still very attached to the pre-personality patch voice lines, some players don’t like rolling 

    10. There are bugs/issues, game crashing issues (specifically on linux)

    Most Common Reasons for continuing to play  (Sorted Highest to Lowest Based on Frequency in Results)

    1. Enjoy unique 3 team gameplay, combat mechanics, personality, and comical violence

    2. Nostalgia, loyalty, curiosity, boredom with other games, it brings me back

    3. I play only when servers are populated

    4. Game is great with friends, works on everyone’s pc’s, but friends may not want to play. A lot of players only play with their friends or when their friends are playing.

    5. Bots have been a great addition, especially for those with terrible internet, though players think they still need some improvement. Some want a way for players to be able to vote the bots off.

    6. Some players come back specifically for achievements.


    Common “What would bring me back” Answers (In no Particular Order)

    • Need more servers with good ping in my region (NA, SA, Australia, Asia)

    • More Players

    • Game updates bring players back

    • Players want more character customization (appropriate cosmetics, new weapons)

    • Players enjoy and want to play new: classes, maps, seasonal events, and gamemodes, aids to variety in content

    • Rank System, Matchmaking

    • Engaging objective modes

    • General improvements in quality and polish

    • Changes to combat (reverting some, improving others)

    • Need more replay value

    • Some more complex controls or aspects of gameplay require more teaching for new players

    • Some players want a developing competitive aspect of the game that could bring some experienced players back. Like creating teams, having a league. Streaming the matches that occur, establishing statistics.

    Did you find the game's combat and game modes easy or difficult to learn? Please share any thoughts you may have regarding the Accessibility of PVKII. (This Question was Optional) (760 responses) (In no Particular Order)

    • Majority of the responses say the game is easy, and “easy to learn, yet difficult to master”. While second to that is it was difficult/ medium at first, but got easy.

    • Many players say a lot of problems with new players and reducing “learning time” could be solved with tutorials, more explanations/information, and a training map

    • Many of those who talk about certain aspects of the game being difficult state the combat system being hard to learn. A lot say its "satisfying", "challenging" once you learn it.

    • Players note introducing some friends to the game can be tricky at first, new player guide helps a bit to explain

    • Controls similar to Mount & Blade helps some players

    • About 12% of responses said the game is difficult. Some players say they feel it's difficult facing off against players who are really good. Some players find certain things easy to pick up like gamemodes and other things difficult like combat and parrying. Most of those who said the game was difficult mentioned combat and parrying causing this. Some players who state the game is difficult like it that way, because it's “challenging”, “rewarding”, and “difficult but fair”. 

    • Some players mention the game has a learning curve, high skill ceiling. A few players think the skill ceiling is low and it's boring.

    • Many players didn’t know how to drop their trinket. 

    • Some game modes are easier to understand than others

    • A few players think that auto-parry is in the game, it is not.  

    This question should’ve been on a scale ranging from Very Hard to Too Easy so it's easy to measure, but in keeping it open ended we still got a lot of great feedback!

    Common Answers (In no Particular Order)

    • Booty is unique, simple, fun, relaxing. A 3 way twist on CTF, dynamic. Great when teams work together, strategize, but sometimes players just dm. 

    • A lot of players express that they’ve never seen anything like booty in any another game

    To add to the previous question, please tell us why. (This Question was Optional) (558 Responses)

    Common and Standout Answers (In no Particular Order)

    • Territory lack of teamwork, maps too large or too many zones, not rewarding

    • Territory could have defense weapons

    • Lack of Official Territory Maps

    • Some players feel Keg clearing occurs too much on territory 

    • More on screen advice for new players in all game modes

    • A large quantity of players state they don’t like waiting around after you die in lts_

    • Lts_ easier for more skilled players, discourages new players, encourages hiding tactic

    • Booty can be prone to have teammates who don’t play objective which can make things one-sided

    • Booty griefing

    • Possible improvement is to make it so you are discouraged from attacking the losing team in bt_ and te_

    • Booty/island is all I play

    • Lts_ - A potential comeback mechanic to the last player of a team so he doesn't just hide in a corner
      Booty need better reward/display to the one who actually attack

    • Consumables could respawn in lts_ and/or kills restoring some of your health or overhealing, some don’t like the pickups in lts

    • Booty Bonus - benefit aura effect around chest carrier (weaker than tw_ effect)

    • Characters with the trinket become too powerful. If you ask me they should be MORE vulnerable and rely on their team to protect them when they have it.

    • Some players don’t like choke points

    • Trinket wars can be hard to understand for new players, can be too chaotic, lacks feedback to tell player if they’re scoring, winning/losing

    • Game Modes can get repetitive, need unpredictable/fun things to add variety

    • Some issues are with map design, some players feel certain bases are too easy to defend

    • Some players don’t like class stacking - i.e. team of sharpshooters attacking a base, army of heavy knights in trinket wars

    • Some expressed they are happy with the gamemodes

    • Distance to carry chests can feel too long

    • Some players state they haven’t heard of or don’t get a chance to play other game modes

    • Some would like to see obj_push given more support and more maps to play, when players do play it some mention it is confusing

    • Defending in booty can be boring to some players 

    • Adding Wave Spawning and Perhaps an advantage to multiple players rushing at the same time other than Combat Advantage.

    • Levers and buttons on island are hard to notice for new players

    • Some players feel chests respawn too quickly

    • Rotating team spawn locations in lts_

    • Some players feel lts_ is a haven for range classes

    • A lot of players feel Deathmatch is boring, lack of objectives, while some enjoy the turn your brain off style

    • Some players were confusing obj_push with territory

    • Tw_ - Add clearer markers that you are in the aura, and maybe draw the outer limit of the aura. Add special moves to the person carrying the trinket as well to spice it up. 

    • Add an alcohol collection aspect to tdm, like kill confirmed.

    Please share any additional constructive feedback with regards to game balance, combat, gamemodes, or maps. (This Question is Optional) (301 Responses)

    Common and Standout Ideas (In no Particular Order)

    • Rolling and jumping need balancing. Some think rolling should be removed

    • Some players think a stamina bar would help with spamming

    • Add a tutorial on how the combat system works, and what characters are meant for what playstyle (i.e. defensive, offensive, counter-attacker, etc...)

    • Players highlight certain classes in need of adjusting. Some players feel Archer is too strong, Bondi is weak, HK is too strong, Many players think skirmisher too fast in movement and attack speed, heavy classes too slow, vikings too well rounded, MaA weapons and special too good, gestir needs improvement, some feel range classes overall are too strong.

    • Remove sharpshooter roll+reload

    • Shields need improvement, should be better defense against range

    • Some players think certain teams are OP, some need nerfs and some need buffs
      Add vote for disabling bots

    • Some players think balance is fine, some think game is ok with minor balancing needed
      Players mention they would like a support class

    • Rotate Round Start Booty placement i.e. Winning Team starts with all chests, tickets adjust accordingly

    • Some players mention hitboxes need work

    • Some players have frustrations over combat in general, dynamic between range and melee characters needs work

    • Bt_island pirate base needs more cover for attackers, a couple of players think Knights have too many tickets at round start

    • Alternate weapons

    • More specials
      Add things that can make the game more complex and fully of content, make it addictive

    • Want to play something other than island

    • Games often end up very lopsided with one team massively dominating the other two,

    • More information to show that a player is improving, tutorial mode for new players

    • Multi gamemode maps

    • If you would die with a full special charge, you should get an automatic second wind or something as compensation for losing the charge.

    • LTS: Adding a "Class Scramble" option, so the teams will have to experience playing as all the classes.

    • TW: To spice up the gameplay, the losing team could get a "Blessing" from their Faction's Deities (a boost in damage, speed, etc), giving them a push to make a comeback. 

    • Many players like interactive maps. TW maps could add some sort of hazard to add more fun to the mix: Desert Ruin could have some sandstorms; Frostbite could have falling debris in certain areas from inside the castle and some small blizzards outside and Temple could have some random boulders -launched by catapults out of bounds, land in certain areas, blocking off certain paths and forcing the player to take alternate routes.

    • Bot intelligence needs work: aim to good even on normal, bot chasing, bots don’t respond if you attack them while they have a chest

    • Auto balance kicks the newest member of the team into another, instead of prioritizing players with high performance

    • Lack of nav meshes for community maps

    • Needs more players

    • add ranked matches and rank system and add character customization

    • Some players don’t like Skirmisher keg

    • Some players note they gamemodes that make you move around the map i.e. cara

    • Smarter contextual death hints telling you how to improve.

    • Map Issues: Some players enjoy Temple traps, some despise them. Viking base bottleneck in townsquare.

    • A more obvious winning team marker

    How often would you like to do Community Play Matches? (i.e. Play with Devs and Testers, Saturday Night Mayhem) (Required Question)

    Forms response chart Question title How often would you like to do Community Play Matches ie Play with Devs and Testers Saturday Night Mayhem Number of responses 1030 responses

    We’ll keep this short. The main take away from this is that a lot of you probably don’t participate in these play events because of answers from the “Have you lost interest?” question, however most answers in the “Other” category mostly list they didn’t know these matches exist, but would be willing to join. We are moving ahead with a more consistent schedule of a Saturday Night Mayhem like event on the first Saturday of every month, and a Play with Devs & Testers event on the last Saturday of every month.

    Apologies for the misspelling in the survey, there is no upcoming “Hoarders: PVKII Edition”. For this idea, the most realistic way to implement would be a simple defending or attacking objective with waves of bots, or simply just waves of bots as the objective. Some maps could be converted into linear experiences. We have discussed varying enemy types and weapons such as skeletons, zombies, animals, and bosses like a perma-rage berserker. As well as, a variety of maps the gamemode could take place. One of our programmers found passion in experimenting with a cooperative mode several years ago called Night of A Million Parrots!
