    Fist off trying to swap weapons and heal. My favorite "The inventory operation failed." over and over and over again. http://prntscr.com/fasw4c This happened in large chunks while trying to heal and or switch from 2h to bow. THEN there is shit like this: http://prntscr.com/faswlf from a magic spell.

    Well in other games a brand new player would get hit for 500k dmg and only have like 80 hp. So... :p

    Lets wait until tuesday to make comments in regards to delay, as the server is very bad for some, regardless of how high or low your ping is. Day 1 and 2 i had a crisp 36-38 ping no delay, no inventory locks, everything felt amazing. Every time after that it went up to 55, now mostly its around 44. It feels like im playing at 200+ ping, every other swing/cast is a ghost swing/cast and every normal spell has delayed dmg; this is no exaggeration. Ive also noticed a lot of my bolt spells will act as if they are a ray sometimes, on release the bolt will just instantly hit the target.

    When you get in a fight and are frustrated some dude is jumping you and you try to fight back but your buttons dont do anything except throw inventory lock errors, youre going to get frustrated more and quit. I dont understand how we can have these issues when the server hardware is like 4 generations newer and faster than it ever was in DFO days. This is one of the first things i would of fixed. I am a part time game developer myself, and yes im PAID for this job im not a volunteer or some dude working on my own shit that wont go anywhere, and i would never let stuff like this fly. Perhaps the difference is we have the server hardware lined up to do 50 times the numbers we expect. i hope tuesday solves a lot of the problems, i guess we will have to wait and see.

    And why should a "new player" stand a chance against an already existing knowledgable player? If we keep going for these types of changes, there will be no reason to even play the game as a new character will be so beefy.

    New players need to learn that the skills you can get your character are pivitol. I realize you have good intentions and want to help retain newer players, however we don't want to make brand new players so strong they can compete with days old or even week old characters.

    Any mmo or pvp game is set up this way. Like every game it takes time developing your character and learning how to use your developed character.

    when you get jumped at a noob spawn and someone 4 hits you, you feel hopeless and quit. This wouldnt be as big of an issue i dont think if people didnt gank in noobie areas. i got caught out where i deserved the fight i got and likely would of lost even if my inventory didnt end up locked. However i see reports of Reds ganking the crap out of new players outside npc cities. Take 60+ damage a shot to them before they can get 3 hits on the attacker and you have a recipe for a dwindling population.

    My biggest issue is the inventory locking. I shouldnt have to look more retarded than i already am running around trying to pull out my staff to heal just to simply look like im squirreling around cause im panicked and dont know what to do lol. Run in circles around a tree while being chased trying to heal just looking like all i know how to do is run around a tree. Its frustrating to the point you want to throw your mouse when you hit the button 10 times and you still have your melee weapon out with a bunch of inventory errors. In this time you take a couple back shots that you wouldnt of took because the game not doing what its supposed to do totally threw your focus out the window.

    Yeah the negativity is disheartening for those of us who just got here, but also "Things are looking good today, so they're clearly fine and will be fine next month" is a bit silly.

    Man I play from the UK and have spent most of my time on the NA server in previous iterations of DF too and I have never had paperdoll lock of any kind, ever.

    Its strange how some players get slammed so hard with these issues and others dont.

    As a game developer i not only would expect this from my players but would never of released my project in this state. They clearly said the game isnt good enough to be launched on steam for at least 6 months. Yet here we are with a full launch with a product that isnt good enough for steam in their own words.
