Wasn't referring to your poll as inane. And fair enough, I hadn't glanced at the latest results. But the bullet sponge debate specifically is something that won't be resolved until we see an explanation of mechanics or lengthy combat vids. Then we can get specific about it.Nope. Look at the poll results. People seem pretty united behind some key concepts - Wounds/bleeding, one-shot kills, complexity over HP boosts.
After that, it's either fast TTK or medium-fast TTK. Slow TTK is a small, small minority.
I'd say the results indicate a pretty clear preference from voters on what they'd like to see.
You can argue all the polls are "inane" if you want to be rude, but in this case, clear trends are there.
