    I'm not sure if I agree with that. I think it's necessary in MOBAS where you have tons of classes and constantly shifting balance. But Darkfall is a different beast. I say let the players naturally change the
    When a game is highly competitive and mostly balanced, I think of it as a sport. The meta only really changes in sports when someone comes up with a new technique, or raises the bar in terms of ability. The rules of the game itself hardly ever change. I don't think it's necessary to change the rules of a game just to keep things fresh. Soccer players now are enjoying the game just as much as the ones who first invented it. I don't think anyone thinks combat is getting stale, if anything it's the only part of the game that keeps many playing.

    Granted I don't think things are perfectly balanced now either, so again i'm fine with some tweakjng. I'd like to see destro removed, all melee skills fixed (so seize and knockback always work) and tied to a frenzy or adrenaline bar, and some cool things added to archery. And as i've said before, i'd like to see a reliable way to disengage melee quickly like a dodge skill that has to be built up with frenzy. Fights are too short now if one person gets into melee and is good at stickybacking. And field AoEs need to be changed to be a bit more skillful and not as rewarding.

    K I got ya been playing df for years Have ya played ROA at all?

    BPG have changed some things from df1 like a lot. I have beaten some good players with 1h axe. Had many other close fights where I lost but that was due to my being bad in range not cause of melee.

    Darkfall is not a competetive game at it's core. Maybe dueling with maxed out chars is to some extent, but that's just one activity that players can engage in.

    It is, currently. It is a PvP centric game, with full loot to boot. That is competition dialed to the max. And it is what has given the game such a loyal following. Ignoring that base in favor of changing the combat up so it supposedly doesn't get stale is a huge mistake imo.

    Sports have evolved over millennia. I don't think it's a good comparison, but we'll forget about that. What you bring up here:

    Is changing combat. We're not going to insert tab targeting or remove physics, but don't be afraid if we change some spells around or decide to add in new types of armor that benefit certain play styles or add in new specializations. All of which will change combat and stir up the meta.

    Right, again i'm totally all for change if the game needs it. I don't think the game is as balanced as it could be now. My only gripe is changing for the sake of change, "to keep combat from getting stale". Once combat is fixed and well balanced, no need to fix what isn't broken.

    Rebalancing the current types of armor would go a long way.

    "Ignore Pain" for example, was designed when skill decay was still intended to be part of the game.

    A mage with Ignore Pain AND all spells could not have possibly existed in the original game concept.

    Removing it from the game all together or buffing physical protections on heavier armors to compensate would help improve the lackluster advantage heavy armor gives in melee combat.

    I have made profit since the beginning with my magic grind. It doesn't make sense to lose gold while leveling your skills

    In AC couldn't you load you inventory with junk to save your gear? Or wrong game?
