Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

This forum is at best a very small subset of the overall CA community. That is why I said to be careful in what is posted here not to be construe as the representation for the community. The few, like yourself, who still frequent this forum can misuse the poll and made the devs, as well as some others, to think the poll speak for everyone.
        GB has had polls on CA facebook page too. That's where Vivian, Odin, and Elin at least emerged.
        Also, I noted forum poll system is limited to ten choices max. In reality, those stem from the first polls with new ones mainly just removing what got 6th star promo last time and adding something to fill to up to 10 choices.

        You're free to also run poll on CA FB page to reach that audience. And CA Discord to reach that audience too. None of the three audiences really represents all players.

        I'm happy forum polls and CA FB page polls have been taken into account by devs. And truly, I trust myself (or Axel or VoV) far better to select reasonable choices than I'd trust GB or the devs. Because we actually have knowledge and understanding of the game over several years, while GB and current devs are just getting their feet wet over their first year.

        So: you may want to take up setliffy methods of spamming CA FB page with your choices, liked and commented by your minis and followers (should you have some). Or maybe pick up and create next poll after next 6* promo. But if you do that on the forum and remove previous choices, you need to present excellent reasons for that, ie. why some previous choices are not fitting for the poll while whatever you replace them with are.

          There is never going to be a way to reach the -entire- community unless the devs start doing polls in game.
          Of course the problem there is that -they- would then be picking the options and not us.
          They -could- start with taking a write in vote on which generals should be on the polls.
          Not sure if I see that happening ever.

          That said, there is a compromise solution.
          Like Elandal says, eliminating already chosen generals is a must but I think perhaps we can also better use the "other" option.
          I think that at the end of each poll we should also consider the "other" votes if that wasn't already done.
          In a new poll we should then include the most voted runner ups in the thread rather than just the poll.
          So if people posted for an "other" general more than any of those in the poll options then that general would get to be in the next general.
          Eventually the poll would only consist of generals that were voted on by people rather than picked because someone deemed them worth it.

          If people are concerned about the segment of players that these poll are reaching then I'm sure that something can be arranged to have a duplicate poll in other locations.
          Just take it up with GB and see what can be arranged.
          Personally I can see it possible to hold these polls also on FB and Discord.
          However... be aware that even if you go the route of "liking" then you only have 6 options max on FB, meaning either have two polls or lower the options for the polls here on the forum.
          On Discord I do believe it's possible for people to add options although that may be possible to lock.
          Of course on Discord they are also simply emoji like on FB so no telling what they represent if people add them and the explanation goes off screen.

          I don't see any other platforms as feasible since Gaea doesn't have an official presence there.

              Joan will be the ultimate guardian mini bait. And warriors can wait until other classes have had their generals too.

                  I -think- that I have pieced together how the devs decide on the next general to 6 star.

                  Earlier today a new poll went up on Facebook featuring four generals.
                  If you look closely you will notice that they are the four leading generals of this very poll.
                  In fact... if you look back further you will find the Facebook poll that led up to the Barbie promo although I saw none for Meekah.
                  I suppose it's possible that they didn't make a FB poll since she scored high on the Barbie poll and the previous forum poll
                  However, the Barbarus promo also contained the three clear leading generals and Attilius substituting for the "other" option.
                  (I didn't check to see if people voted for him the most in the poll thread)

                  What appears to be happening is that the devs (unless GB decides it) let the polls here run for a while and then choose the four leading generals for a poll on Facebook.
                  I'm not sure whether Facebook is then the "final" vote or whether it's just used as a confirming vote but at the very least it appears to be a round of narrowing down the options.

                  Considering that we got a new poll I'm pretty sure that the remaining options listed in -this- poll will no longer be considered this round.
                  Meaning... the winner will (very likely) be one of the following:

                  Dolomar
                  Dawn
                  Daphne
                  Aethyx

                        Looking forward to buying my last 6* Oracle general, which is Dolomar.

                          I doubt Annika will gain a significant pierce bonus from a 6th star, plus she's balanced (unfortunately), despite the fact she's been used for attacking.
                          Had she been aggro general, we would be having different conversation.
                          Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

                            Devs: if you have a way to pull from the player database what generals other than those to which 6 stars have already been offered , are 5 stars , thinking that should be the next to get the 6* offered . Might be one not on the poll list ( maalvus for example has been denied a spot on the ballot again )

                              Maalvus wasn't "denied" a spot on the ballot.

                              In the previous polls people seemingly agreed that, compared to Dolomar and Barbarus, Maalvus was an inferior choice which led to him being excluded.

                              Of course since there is always the "other" option to write in a general that you would like to see you can still write in Maalvus.

                              Although as I stated above, maybe that is too late for this specific poll.

                                Poll on CA Facebook page has exactly same result as this forum poll:
                                1. Dolomar
                                2. Dawn
                                3. Daphne
                                4. Aethyx


                                Seems forumites and facebookers aren't all that different when it comes to generals they like
