    I am 95% sure this game will die if these changes are implemented. It's just turning this game into literally EVERY OTHER GAME out there right now. Why wouldn't I just go play something else that has classes? PoE, Overwatch, WoW...anything. They are supported and polished better than this game will ever be. No one asked for or wants massive combat changes. Did you ever play Path of Exile? Why do you think their game is so popular? They add new stuff every week, mostly cosmetic. You drastically underestimate how important and wanted cosmetic items are. I bet that alone would bring in new players and keep the old ones. Add more things for players to do/fight for. Cut the down-time completely. There are many things to cut down-time that I could name right now and they aren't even being looked at. Combat only needs some damage nerfs and we're good. As soon as you change the combat, everyone who came back to play this game will quit, tell their friends about it and they will die.

    This sounds fucking AWESOME

    Personally I feel like I solved or even mastered the current meta to the point where its no longer interesting to play let alone watch way back in summer of 2011

    I know not everyone got to experience that for as long as i did due to having a weaker character, joining late, or just being bad at innovating/ adapting, so they probably aren't tired and unimpressed by it yet...

    But i think overall many more people both new and old will prefer the shake up

    Finally something new and different between this and territory control (and hopefully new higher tiers of bone/leather/robe armor) BPG definitely have my support and subs back

    Yea keep liking this dudes post, @Billy Lee. This right here is the biggest piece of evidence that this change is complete horseshit.

    Please go through with this. Don't listen to all the whiners. The same 50 elitist players that have always been here and always whined are the primary whiners. They are not enough to support this game, they are not who you need to cater to.

    You do you BPG, I got faith.

    K. Except you're wrong.

    We want changes, we don't want to ruin the game.

    Real talk tho. You know there are only 4 elemental magic schools right? Like before you start masterfully balancing the game I need confirmation that was a typo.

    I'm about 10 years tired of cycling and watching people cycle r90's and rays.

    No.. no we hasn't because he listed them seperately.

    Then why are you playing this game lmfao?

    Changing the core combat of this game is like changing counter strikes combat.

    Say goodbye to Counterstrike.

    My apologies if that confused you, but what Billy Lee said is correct.

    If someone wants to play as certain "class", they could right now. Just unbind all spells except Fire Spells, go ahead, nothing's stopping you from doing that. But don't force other people to play the same way.

    Full loot open world FPS PvP.

    That is the core of this game, EVERYBODY cycling r90s, field AoE, and melee rushing is not the core of this game.

    Game will still have full loot open world FPS PvP if they make combat changes. It will still feel like Darkfall combat, it just wont be every single person doing the exact same thing over and over and over and over.

    The six elementals AND both Arcane/Necromancy. AND AND AND AND AND AND AND AND AND AND AND AND AND

    What he said might have been correct but what you said is not what you meant in any way shape or form.
    --- Post updated ---
    The fact that you won't even accept you might have made a typo in an outline of these changes is terrifying. If you can't understand why refusing to admit a mistake on something that small and insignificant when proposing drastic changes to the core of a game I love and have loved since I first splatted into Agon would worry me then I honestly have no words.

    You think new players will join and stick around when the combat gets mangled and they see a lot of hardcore darkfall players leave in disgust? Haha.
