Difficulty Poll Results
While far from a scientific analysis or statistical home-run, the poll I’ve been running on the difficulty of the game had some pretty decisive results. A clear majority, about 57% of those who participated in the poll, felt that the game was “fairly difficult”. Close to 37% of respondents said that the game difficulty was “just right”. Out of a total of 79 people who voted, only 4 selected “too difficult”, while only 1 chose “fairly easy”. Again, this is by no means a random sampling of players, since most people who come to this blog are either devoted to the game or like it enough to want to read additional material about it, so that skews thing a bit. Still, it shows that among that group, most feel that the game is a bit on the difficult side, but not too hard. I would agree with this assessment overall. Heirs of Numenor has raised the question of difficulty once again for players, as some have been vocal about feeling that the stakes have been raised a bit too high for comfort. I will be addressing this whole issue in a future post.
Thanks to those who voted. A new poll will be up by the time you read this.
