Re: Important information regarding death

You ask us to report "direct problems in the code or _unintended_ side-effects or bugs related to the combat change". That's however fairly hard to do not knowing what is intended and what is not. A more direct example: Is it intended for some guilds to suck now and other guilds to dominate? Would a...

Re: Upcoming Changes.

Silon: Both me and the attacked party agreed that the outcome of the fight would have been the same before the change. Correct. However the fight itself would never have happened before the change, correct? So arguably, the change is directly responsible for two deaths. My opinion. Well, Nils did c...

Re: Upcoming Changes.

PvP This being said, if you join a guild like Knights, MM, Rangers, DA, etc. and then you're suprised or upset you died in PvP, then I really think you need to do some research, before you pick your guild. Death penalty I think with death recovery - it's really not big of a deal. You get 80% of los...

Re: Upcoming Changes.

Sounds like a good change all in all. In which phase will AC vs Resist on mobs and critters be adressed? Example: Orc captain was a pain for melee before this change and now most likely impossible to beat while a champion (insert caster guild here) can beat him in seconds. I doubt this change will ...

Re: Upcoming Changes.

I'll go ahead and disagree on this being a good change :) The change, as some of us heralded, completely reverted balance. I play quite a few chars, some even won the lottery with this change, being able to defeat enemies several levels above their size (while wearing only a bit of armour). Others h...

Re: Upcoming Changes.

As for guilds, it's hard to guess who are going to be the biggest "winners and loosers", until some time goes into testing of configs, equipment and spells. If you're willing to team, my bet would be on Calians, followed in some distance by Knights. Being able to split or rotate tanks and benefit f...

Re: Upcoming Changes.

You're not counting one thing in. When 3 champs gang on 1 myth, the myth still kills one or two of them and has time to run. I know this, because that's Ranger vs. Mage reality (please, let's not derail to this, I am just saying that there's at least a scrap of data for what I say, nothing else). W...

Re: Upcoming Changes.

Redblade: Yes, it will likely become easier to kill people in PVP. Could it be so that big myths can bully smaller players more easily? Yes, it's possible that might happen. On the other hand, it will also make it easier for smaller players to "gang up" and take down bigger players. Strength in num...

Re: Upcoming Changes.

Disclaimer: I play chars who will (at least I hope) be greatly positively affected by the change. I play chars who will (certainly) get near to zero positive effect from the change too. While I am a fan of this change, 2.something times bigger white hits damage does sound like a bit too much to me. ...
