Alright, some more detailed opinions:
Lucky & Skilled Update:
-New weapons as of now need rebalancing
-Books with +% quality, If they can get +5% quality (hasn't seen a 5% one looted yet), then they're good, otherwise little reason to use over traditional OS (i feel like risk has to have at least some reward over just OS4, and not just XP)
-Tasks and research projects are nice.
Alliance War Changes:
Mostly positive, better/more efficient target selection is a plus, as well as slightly rewarding donators.
Intrigue me Con, I have no idea what this is going to be
Regular PvE has no challenge, just kite, even 1 man warhammer can do it, so i wonder how the survival aspects mix in with the challenge.
Finally we can get all white clothing to be arctic themed
But love the customization options.
We'll see how it goes, but seems like going in the right direction to reducing player aggravation from some bounties.
Map expansion, more content, etc.
Seems like a good stepping stone to doing player compound raids, we'll see how this pans out as well.
Throwback to previous games, seems like Ivan's Berserkers again, still easily kitable, but keeps you on your toes.
This is *THE BIG MAYBE OF 2016*, so I can't really say anything now about current plans, but I can post some suggestions:
Big raiders can get a Raider tag when you click on their name, or big donators can get another one like that.
They'll have unique event content like always, and we're here to see what you can do next to blow us away
