    teclus got a reaction from JamesGoblin in New Campaing, same problems... Almost Quiting...   
    Without even playing, I agree with this guy. And everyone telling him not to play are WAY off point. These would be simple adjustments. You need an ecosystem of testers, and this guy is frustrated. You set yourself up for failure by ridiculing people who speak out with emotion. Emotion means they are invested.

    Honestly, I don't want to be a pessimist. That being said, I have seen more people show up for stress tests on a Shadowbane emulator. It had zero content, you could not do anything but run around and there were hundreds of people. It was free, and maybe that is it, but I think these guys should be very careful on the messages that they send. Take just a little time to make the testing experience a liitle more user friendly and exciting, see what happens.
     
    I have no doubt the game will be great, but many gamers are jaded by pay to test development models like this. The player base will be key here. We need to have healthy discussions about how to increase engagement and not settle. It is "just alpha!" and I'll be damned if most people give a flying custard what you call it. We paid and we want to play. We are consumers that want more than anyone can deliver and we are ALWAYS right! The winners will be those developers that over deliver every step of the way.
     
    To your point, this is a market issue. Unfortunately, trash devs have raised the bar by sielding themselves from criticism. To be different and better will not be easy. Get to it!

    In a world full of Mmo beta launches. You'd be kidding yourself if you think people will look past how boring this currently is and come back. You may have lost a lot of people already. Time to focus on mAking the tests more entertaining imo. Also, if testing is key, why does it take x seconds to craft an item. Why not make it 1 sec or instant. That would increase testability and increase enjoyment.

    Next wave needs actual trade windows and safe zones with trees for apples. They need to allow cooking around npc fires. Also, crafting simple items should not take so long. It is mind numbing.

    teclus got a reaction from KrakkenSmacken in AutoCollect - good or bad?   
    I disagree, why add minutes/hours of mundane resource collection to everyone for the possible addition of emergent gameplay. Why not handle that through a steal/stealth process that would offer counters to gameplay?

    teclus reacted to Destrin in Health Pool Maximum   
    The HP you get from the skills is so minimal that you need at least 2 or 3 skills trained to get like 100hp.  Not really worth speccing in to at the moment.

    Anyone know much about how this works? I've maxed out a few of these and literally have about 50 more hps. Are they raising the max that I could obtain through gear? If so, custard...

    teclus got a reaction from Dirkoff in Sat, December 10 – Mon, December 12 - Bugs, anomalies and tech issues FEEDBACK   
    My chat windows was showing campaign, which is where I was seeing people talking. After a minute, it showed that I had disconnected but I was still able to farm and collect resources. I noticed no one was talking. I attempted to speak in global several times and nothing showed up. So I quit to lobby and came back in. I had lost all of my stuff, but the skills I had picked to train were still working. After logging back in, I could see people running around but there was no channel in my chat with people talking.
     
    When sitting to log out, my character would start floating downhill on my screen.

    Surely there will be Shards where you can only bring so many people in from the same guild. If not, I would be pretty disappointed.

    You should be careful. There are a lot of 10 man guilds that prefer to play outnumbered. You force them to play together and it tends to get ugly fast for people like you.
     
    I'm assuming by the way you talk that you are one of the people that ally in hungerdome b/c you have more than 4 or 5 players. I'm different than you, I am bloodthirsty and will kill my guildmates without second thought.

    My guess is you pick a god and they give you different boons. Like the one that gives you eternal life, you turn into a spirit bird when you die and can continue to contribute to fighting. Maybe even some gods have requirements and/or negative impacts. Once you pick the god, you can't undo it. Your character is forever in service.

    My rage still doesn't go down when weapon is out. Seems to work for Champion rage as well. Not sure if intended, please advise.

    The skills system is in the middle of open-heart surgery.  We didn't promise it as part of 1.1 because we knew that it wouldn't be done.  Feel free to play around with it, but I can't make any guarantees about what might (or might not!) be wired up so far.

    What skills have you trained up? Have they made a difference?
     
    I started with hp skills and didn't get any return. Some say crit chance may be working, I have't noticed significant returns.

    I like that the lower hp champion has a skillshot permasnare. Should just increase the cost so it is harder to spam permanently.
