Hey,

We see requests for these pages to be on the homepage pop up every now and again. However, we have to think long term. Is this a page you'll want to access (either as a current, new or potential player) continuously across your gameplay experience?

If not, we're unlikely to add it to the homepage. We want the homepage to be where you go to find your most high profile pages and links to information such as the news and you can expand that through "sub-hubs" if necessary. Rather than a dumping ground for every piece of content we release making confusing menus and discouraging users from looking around the information they may find helpful at that time.

If there is no easy way to access said page then yes it should be accessible via the dropdown IMO. It's actually an incredibly useful page.

There's no harm in trialling it. :)

And honestly I think doing something like this would boost the morale of the the regulars here given the lack of updates and openness from the web team.


The usefulness I think isn't the point I'm trying to make. The homepage should be a hub for the content our users need to access most regularly and provides the most impactful content, a page which provides drop rates isn't something the average user is going to access multiple times a day, as opposed to for example the forums :)

As for openness of the web team, we're updating the website all the time. Just yesterday we re-launched this and this

Happy to reply to that thread later on, but I'm not sure that'll alleviate your concerns.

I think Demither has a happy compromise with having the page linked somewhere on the site that is more permanent than a forum thread like perhaps in the game guide rather than the dropdown. I really do believe it's a very useful resource and I'd love to see it listed somewhere without the fear of it falling into Chewy's mouth. :P


I agree with this in principle, its a good place to put something like that - although reading the page its likely the content would have to be considerably reworded to allow this to have a space to fit.

Remember, the page in question at the moment is explicitly designed for new users, many of whom may not see a boss for several years. For that reason, I'm not sure it would either increase exposure to the page or be a useful place for it - not something I'm personally specifically against though.

I'll raise it and see if its something we can do though.
