    I highly doubt the will, just saying, most MMO's devs/moderators etc have like one devs build highly inflated with stat, that would be impossible for a normal player to make (could in the case of rift be they had a 66/66/66 build maybe) and then they have a normal player toon as well they play on that they are to act as if they are just a normal player, and can't tell anyone that they are a dev when playing that

    Can you imagine the explosion of QQ if a dev actually posted on these boards what class they play? It wouldn't even matter what spec they play, if a game dev posted that they enjoy any class, be it flavor of the month, OP or a 22/22/22 Necro/Pyro/Stormcaller. The trolls would burn up their keyboards with hatespam.

    Given the inquisitor parses and gameplay, the guy is probably not working for them any more. Need more love.

    I seriously doubt they would ever post what they play. It would cause too much drama related to X soul is getting too much attention because Y developer is playing it. They work on souls as they appear to need help. There is about 10,000 different variables that determine if a soul is going to be powerful or weak. And the combinations of those souls are what make each unique. Min/Maxers in general are going to gravitate to a small cluster of specs. That can be seen already searching the forums.

    Also, if they were to give a specific spec people would then end up asking why did you choose that item over this item. Listening to the Podcast from a week ago I am of the conclusion that alot of the developers don't play the game nearly as hardcore as some of us do. They gave statements like, "I am still leveling my main but have started about 5 different alts." Which means they aren't playing the endgame as much as we are at this point. They are still in the this is neat, got to find each quest and exploration phase of the game. Not the must grind out better gear portion.

    This is very much the truth. Some of my friends have worked in the industry for years now (Funcom, SOE, EA...to name a few), and they rarely have time to play games outside of working on them, and when they do they tend to play games other than the ones they are working on.

    People forget that this is a job for them. They dont have endless hours to sit there playing, and the certainly dont make x class OP'd cuse it benifits them directly. It's laughable when people suggest that current game inballances are due to a dev's personal class choice.

    Someone in WoW did this and said they played a Warlock and someone else said they played a Paladin, forever after that it was used to complain about warlocks and paladins being op.

    They aren't going to post what they play..because they don't play this game.

    Normally i would agree with you, however it has been proven that Adam gershowitz did just that. Bright wizards went untouched in war for literally half a year because Adam played it. As a result Sorc's were also on the same level except utility. He is also doing the same thing to RIFT. Like mythic, trion is putting up with his **** idea's and going along with it.

    Luckily for us Adam does not have such a large grip on trion like he did with mythic.
