    If even half of this is done within the next few months, free to play period and HEAVY marketing I can seriously see this being a complete Jesus patch. I'm so positive that hundreds of players would return as long as it's done as promised in a good time frame and marketed. I wanna play DF again this is exciting.

    Sounds good, but as always i'm skeptical when it comes to the direction this game actually takes. I'll definitely come back to check this out when it's in, though.

    sounds good, gonna have to reserve excitement until I actually see it though.
    Not the first time something cool has been announced and then never happened.
    This game is cursed.

    Is there a rough eta for this? We have had lots of talks for months or years of TC and watchtowers, ect.. but have yet to see much in game. As others have said, a lot of us are skeptical. Especially after the whole 'Mid October' ETA for TC being missed with little to no explanation for that.

    Also, combat needs to be FULLY REVERTED if you want to regain trust from your community. You guys tried, it did't work out... its okay that it didn't work out... but please don't leave combat in a horrible state.

    Fully revert combat so you guys can actually restore a minuscule amount of trust. Until then, this announcement is all smoke and mirrors like the rest of them.

    The topic of a revert we can put up in community patches(CP) if the players vote it in. We'll have a segment specifically for discussing current combat in the livestream as we know it is still a hot topic. We aren't wanting to put anymore focus on combat currently. However to honour our commitment to CP we will put full revert and/or additional combat tweaks on the patch cycle if voted by majority.

    Full revert would get me playing again. To be more specific I would like it reverted to the state right before this patch https://www.riseofagon.com/news/patch-notes-may-30th-2018/ . Just my opinion though guess will see where this goes. You manage to revert and get some good things going with this expansion I will definitely start playing again and maybe gain a little faith in you guys back but only time will tell.

    Yes.

    The self-buff removal was another example of doing something we wanted in the wrong way.

    If BPG wants to give us 4-5 self buffs instead of the absurd amount we had? Go for it, this is literally all we wanted and what we still want.

    If they don't, no self-buffs is better.
    --- Post updated ---
    You aren't alone on this. That patch alone probably took away 50% of the games pop.

    The only thing that I think should remain is the ability to click and then re-click and hold to delay casting a spell. (It's a QoL feature)

    Then were left with:

    - The self buff problem
    - The naked/scroach effectiveness problem.

    Self buffs could care less if they were removed again or combined into less spells like we've all been asking for forever don't mind either and naked's why not 100% crit chance on them if they don't have any gear imo this is one of the things dfuw got right. might not work for low dura gear etc but its a start.

    Yes this is the common sentiment we've seen from the revert posters is to go back to before that patch. I'll talk about it, aka get assaulted about it on the live stream I'm sure :)

    Self buff should come back in the form of invisible passive, title or food.

    I just dont want to waste so much time on enchanting.
