Your biggest problem is treating this game like a polished product. OL development has been pussyfooting around ideas for years worrying about balance and bullshit with never ending worthless polls. Implement shit to the main server, have your player base test them and then use ACTUAL feedback to hot fix the shit.

May I draw your attention to the update that reduced rationalities effectiveness rather dramatically that happened a few years ago (i believe in anticipation of magic update but meh).

I mean, look at the current attris and such, some of their strengths are going to be changed and hotfixed in relation to proposed magic/summoning/ranging updates.

You also get far more eyes and people on to test something on the main server (and it doesn't half end up being the same 4 people testing things on the test server)

If breaking the main server is a concern, it's been broken dozens of times, sometimes multiple times in a week.

tbh i don't like the need to pay for the polls, I reckon instead of the random quality of customs we should have tried to make skins to sell, and get polls free so we can gather more opinions from them. There are things such as how perks will soft reset that aren't polls that ought to be.

Way polls are dealt with kind of hamstrings itself, if you're going to use them, you need to gather the opinions multiple times to make more informed decisions than a random once off thread where some people will vote without any real consideration.

In terms of finished product, OL feels like a pre-alpha/alpha

Read every post. In 2012-13 everyone was excited, 5 years later this is what it has become.  Butler has some very good points, however this has been brought up in  2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 & now 2018. As far as "Player Driven", I can't remember the last time we had a poll, where we actually carried out what was voted on.....maybe when we went to the attribute system idk. As for "IF I won the Lottery". I would just buy the game Hire real ADULT Game programmers with master degrees, & on a side note-- Max out Both Fai & I on all attributes lol & tell the "hackers"(programmers) to get it ALL done in 6 months.  Then buy EL and close it down :D but that's me
