I have heard so... SOOOO much whining about the new season "stealing" stuff and changing the dilithium requirements, and how new sets work and how the Omega system works. It's almost like these people were surprised by what was happening in the season. I literally saw a thread where someone was demanding that Cryptic return their EDCs and Remen datalogs.
Guess what? It's not going back, and you had plenty of warning.
The Devs have been more than transparent with the Season update, even allowing us to play around with it on Tribble for the past three weeks. There have been Dev blogs going back the past six weeks discussing every new feature in this season update. And there have been more than enough threads picking apart every single tweak in the game. The Tribble patch notes have spelled out every detail of the every system that is to be changed in game.
In short, It is WAY too late to complain about it. Get use to it, the new game is here.
Devs said that we'd get dilithium for stfs, then BAM release day now we dont. Now there is a 90% increase in AFKers who hit up the PvP queues.
Return dilithium to the STFs so the new AFKers can **** back off. That is all I want.
From my point of view, I`m disapointed with S7. But other way, then most of the players.
S7 is not fun at all, and I`m playing for fun only. My problem is, the borg are far too strong now, crytic is on the borg side in the battles. Other point is that, most of the romulan missions are dull. Not so much stories, only grinding. Basically since the F2P started sto is changed too much, I don`t like it.
I`m still cannot understand why it is so necessary for crytic to make angry the players with the dilithium farming changes. It is like you give a new present (s7) and you broke it in the same time. Why not do the dil changes a months later, if you need to do it so badly?
I spent a lot on sto, but now I cannot see anything to pay for. I see only hard work in it, not fun. And if I won`t feel good in the game, the I won`t any spend money.
Next week the Hitman 5 will release.....
I remember when Cryptic pushed this on the player base in CoH.
In 2007 a significant gameplay change called "Enhancement Diversification", or ED, was implemented in Issue 6. ED received strong negative feedback from the player community. The response thread to ED on the official City of Heroes message forum exceeded 3,500 replies in the first 36 hours, and soon after grew so large that a second thread was required due to forum software limits.
ED imposed a point of sharply diminished returns on how far each individual aspect of each power could be improved. Prior to ED, a player could focus all enhancements on only one of a power's aspects and receive fully cumulative benefits. Cryptic's stated reason behind ED was "to promote the use of more different types of Enhancements in powers".
Critics derided ED for its universal reduction of the maximum possible effectiveness of all characters, making it a global nerf, that many defensive powers had now been significantly weakened for two Issues in a row, frustrating especially those who specialize in such powers and invalidated many of their existing tactics; that some powers cannot legally or usefully accept more than one type of Enhancement and thus cannot be "diversified"; that it was deceitful to enact such a severe change less than a month after official Jack Emmert announcing "we?ve finished making large changes to the power sets" and that ED was too fundamental a change to implement so long after the original launch.
Some, but not all, of the negative effects of Enhancement Diversification were negated with the release of the Invention system in Issue 9, allowing players to create one enhancement that affects multiple statistics at once with bonuses for a full set that would affect global (across all powers) statistics thus allowing powers to increase a given statistic beyond the point of diminishing returns, while still honoring the limits created with ED during Issue 6.
If my friends leave I'm going with them. I've wasted 200 bucks for nothing. I've come to a conclusion. All of these gaming companies have incompentant leadership. People who do not understand the gaming industry. They all should get pink slips.
That is pretty funny, the devs have been more transparent then ever?
You mean the bold face lies about the STF dilithium?
The last minute zero feedback nerfs to dilithium from B'Tran?
Or how about the massive thread about Doff dilithium costs that was hidden without patch notes and never responded to a single time?
Being transparent about trivial garbage on New Romulus does not count to game breaking, rage inducing, customer losing changes like what happened.
