    oof.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Better get rid of portal chambers and spend 6 months making rune books only to turn back on portal chambers.

    You should not mock the people that PAY your meals while they are mocking you.
    You take it in the chest like a man and continue working to prove those people wrong.

    Because what BPG (you included Kilrain) has done since RoA started - with all your good intentions - shows EXACTLY what armchair dev. is.
    And it's far from amazing.

    Wow that hurts to watch.
    --- Post updated ---
    Btw he is right with most of the comments. It’s really hard to understand the game when you haven’t played as much as we did. I don’t mean that in a bad way but seriously most of the vets have been around to see all the patches AV put in and how it affected the game. What worked and what didn’t.

    Q4/5 mage VS Q5 infernal Destro btw.

    Ontop of out trading melee by 10-13, out trading range, you also do 70 damage when they have their staff out. Great balance!

    This thread was a good read.

    Kilrain bashing his players' constructive thoughts, and getting reemed for it was icing on the cake.

    I've sat back and read quite a few nasty posts, and after three years bothing much has changed.

    This game and the forum are in an insane loop. Same things happening, but expecting something to change.

    How many years now and I havent seen a lick of actual content. I read patch notes. Well done on changing the journal. That should have been done before release, and many of the other changes many years ago.

    You've changed the one thing that everyone comes back to, and still remain for... the combat.

    *sucks fingers* This whole BPG fiasco is FINGER LICKING GOOD.

    The Market.
    The Safe Zones
    The siege windows.

    Grind should have never been reduced.
    Portal chambers should have never been removed.
    Combat should've never been touched.

    They keep on telling us to move forward, but the game has been bleeding since launch.

    You program in an Armchair? You should switch to a mesh office chair, they are freaking great.

    I stated a simple solution doesn’t exist and you claimed it was inaccurate followed by a suggestion that doesn’t currently exist and isn’t “simple”. It’s another layer on top of everything else that will always need to be accounted for if and when any other change or addition is made hence the armchair remark because when viewed from your perspective it seems like an obvious and simple solution yet it really isn’t as simple as it seems. I apologize if I hurt your feelings.

    You are probably right. Would be much better on my back.

    Can’t decide if it’s sad or satisfying to watch BPG staff completely unravel.

    Sad, but human. Rather a bit of human weakness than silence.

    Besides, I still believe in them, took them a long time to do a partial revert, but they did it. And all in all the added content and non-combat changes have been great. Hopefully we have a great expansion to look forward to at some point in the future.

    The 'normalized and made armor protections linear across the board' part obviously wasn't reverted. Id argue pretty much every change made after the middle of beta made the game worse.

    Just imagine if they actually responded to requests from objectively competent developers asking to work on the game/engine.

    /shrug

    They put themselves in this position(and for some reason I feel like they did it intentionally).

    Good video.

    so 1 dmg difference from infernal to dragon. Averaging 26 in the front against infernal. But in lucks videos. 40+ against infernal and he gets hit on avg for 36-40 dmg when he's in dragon armor and the average weapon used against him definitely wasn't over .92 (watched 4 clips of him fighting and all received dmg was 36-40)



    @kilrain

    You can take this moment and think we are still attacking you or you can see this as sufficient testing from the player base that the most important aspect of the game that needed nerf'd is the opposite and in the stage of being completely broken from the original balance and should still be given immediate attention to.

    Anybody who dies fast enough in an unenjoyable time frame dies from melee. You can't let destroyers run around and keep 7 noobs busy and kill 4 of them. They will never stay. They don't have a fighting chance on their best day. You can't let players to continue to get run down continuously from parry melee.
