The feedback is more on point because the dev is giving them more information on what he plans to do and directing his hunters in the NDA to look at that specific area. This will of course give him great information but only as it pretains to the direction he sends them in.

The hunters in the NDA are pouring over numbers and skills and getting things ready for what looks to be a great addition to the hunter line so they are all for it. Then a week to update he tells them it will be going in for blue line...... you just worked your tail off and are you going to tell the boss umm... that is the raid stance... no most people will drink the coolaide.
Or .. ZC we have a problem with this it is the raid line, hunters kind of need that. Yeah I know but one line had to go and we will make changes X,Y and Z to red line to help with that, but not at release. Hunters wil need to suffer 3-6 months but there is nothing I can do about it and they will be much better off after that with new utility and play. So the NDA people who know the path which is being taken accept this and move on.... meanwhile back in the jungle the lord of the flies hunters who have no information on any of this are screaming kill the pig and drink its blood.
That is the danger of comparmentalizing information. To some who got to see the whole book this isn't an issue to those who read three paragraphs of chapter 7 well we don't know if it is a love story, a sci fi novel, or a horror story. Without basic communication there is the fear of the unknown. What good or bad things are in store for us. When information is given like directives... hunters will get an aggro skill now... ok good... it will be b/p/e proof.... damn even better (hunter begins to drool) ... but only against mobs your level... facepalm..... ummm we need aggro control for boss fights... they are above our level so we can still miss with the aggro skill we were given. That means hunters can still wipe raids beacuse we cannot actively control our aggro like the other dps classes can and puts hunters at a disadvantage. On paper it looks good in practice not so much. You mean hunters in the NDA program didn't notice it?
