The DND:Next open playtest survey has been posted. Take a few minutes and take the survey, if you want to make your voice heard.
The first question is not terribly useful. Instead of asking how long you have played, they should be asking which editions of DnD you have played.
More game balance BS. And battle-grid questions. I thought DnD:Next was going to provide gridless combat options. Has that ALREADY gone out the window?
Some good questions to determine your capacity to evaluate the new ruleset, from a DMing point of view. Hopefully the cross-reference the subsequent answers with the DM's stated experience.
The DnD:Next designers seem hopelessly entangled in the gamist model. The above player character questions focus on gamist concerns. It would be refreshing to see questions asking whether the character's special features adequately simulated reality, or allowed the player to get into character.
How do you answer the question about the feel of a class? Particularly if all the respondent has experience with is 4E, and maybe 3E? This is why I have a problem with this survey structure. You are asking for feedback from people, some of whom may have NO IDEA what the Cleric "feels" like, across the entire history of DnD. You need to cross-reference this, and the other character questions, against the earlier question regarding the number of years a respondent has played DnD (or better, number of editions).
