  • i don't get it.

    BS seems to want to change the game ? why ?

    why do people think change for the sake of change is good ?

    most people playing this game have been playing this game for a LONG time

    .... chess .... the rules have been the same for over 4000 years

    imagine someone saying, 'chess is boring and stale' lets change the rules and now a horse jumps ahead 3 instead of 2 before going one left or right...

    ...

    i don't think broadsword gets it ...

    we play the game because it is stagnant and the same and the thing we are FAMILIAR with

    change stuff and you will lose more people.

    why can't yo just fix bugs instead of change the game ?

    What specifically is the complaint, Muy? Most of the changes are minor.

  • I think the climbing spikes should have been left in, but moved to a longer timer like 30 minutes. It's too easy for heavy tanks to terrorize keeps right now because the cool down is too short. A longer cool down would make the climb pushes matter more.

    I do not like the first aid change. I can see the potential for it being abused with the current system, but the cool down is too long to make it useful as first aid rather than run-away IP 5. Increasing the cool down to 5 min would have solved most problems i think.

    i think the changes to the RA ranged AE damage spells might create some very 'novel' zerg busting group setups. imagine 5 people in group stealth, timing their VP 5 and their ranged normal AE spell or pbaoe to all hit in a fraction of a second. this is the sort of thing that will never get tested on the test server.

    remove climb walls from heavy tanks ? it never made sense to me that people in the heaviest armor could climb walls, but hey, it made that a class without ranged options could do something in a siege... but it's a fantasy game, so i could live with it that people in plate could climb a wall ... and now they give climb walls instead to maulers who have one of the best nukes in the game ? that class already had options in a siege ...
    if they wanted to take away climb walls from heavy tanks, imho it would have made more sense to give it to the other 3 light tank classes.

    remove free charge from the light tanks ? i don't like it. i can probably cope better with it than most other light tanks due to my RR, but light tanks, who are rather fragile, especially to ranged and spell damage, need this option to get into combat or get out of combat ...

    i expect to see a LOT less people play heavy or light tanks....

    i will cope, but for a lot of the less high RR people, this will be devastating.

  • I do not like seeing charge removed for free from light tanks either. They are pretty easy to counter already.

    I'm seeing more and more nights lately where I'm the only melee class in the battle group :(

    Couldn't be further from the truth. For example there are no adjourned games anymore, time controls changes (faster and with increments), rating calculation got changed, there are more titles to be gained (AFM - AGM), how to qualify to and run the WCC, added 75-move-rule to existing 50-move-rule ... lot of rules around the game have changed. That also changed the way we play it, like Quickplay-finish.

    The movement of bishops, queen and pawns changed at the end of the 15th century. Castling also got introduced later.

    Yes, pawns still move forward but those core mechanics are probably the same for this game, for example sprinting and interrupting casters.

    Same here man I was thinking the other day what I would do without this vice....
    The changes blow tho, radical changes clearly show once again that they don't have a pulse on the game at all and don't give a crap either. Cest la vie... :(
  • No one want the light tank charge nerf.
  • edited June 6 PM
    Giving reavers stoi is about to be dummmmmbb. Also as someone who has a rr12 mauler giving them climb walls is even more dumb.. unfortunately tanks get the crap end of the stick in todays game. When my caster can put out 1k+dmg in 5 secs compared to a tank taking that long to even close half the gap. Taking charge away from lights when they already are shafted in the dmg game is kind of what is the word very ignorant?

  • LTs are not lacking in the damage department and giving out free RAs was a dumb idea and long overdue for it's removal
