August 8-13 Poll Results

4236 players took part in the most recent poll.  1925 of them (or 45%) did take part in public test 6.6, while 55% (or 2311) either did not want to do it or just were not aware of the test itself. Personally I think that EU and US players were quite active during public testing, and the figures prove it.

Had to finish the poll eariler this time due to my departure to Gamescom Expo (Cologne, Germany). Hope to see some of you there. : )

Thanks for the feedback.

New weekly poll is up. Please be active, this one is important.
