Balance

  • Campaign normal is now more “normal.” What does “normal” even mean? T-shirts and jeans? A polo? Beer by the pool? Warsong Commander giving minions with 3 or less attack charge? Check out our influence vote later today to help decide what “normal” means.


Bug Fixes

  • Restored our loading screens to their formal, non-pixelated glory. I mean, former. It’d be really cool if they were wearing a suit though, right?

  • Fixed one of the many issues with full-screen windowed mode. We wish that read “full-screen mode,” but it doesn’t. That fix is next! Stay tuned.

  • Stopped monthly missions from resetting when you join a Social Tavern.

  • Put together a plan to give everyone affected by the bug above a free Bearkira. Have a look!

  • Chopped October’s monthly mission requirements in half. IN HALF. Actually, more than half. But you get the drift.

"Warsong Commander giving minions with 3 or less attack charge?"

I see what you did there...

By the way, is it possible to reduce/remove the blur effect when the in-game maintenance message appears? It's quite frustating...

We're actively discussing this issue internally!

Yeah, our QA team caught that last night. Agreed that it's pretty frustrating. We're looking into it.

At least the people who lost their Bearkiras or had monthly mission progress damage can catch up now. But luckily, I have my Bearkira and it's still in my bin. So I am happy.

I actually like seeing items drop, if only you knew how it was before. No items dropping at all :'(   

Sure it might be lowered by like 20% or something but only if the quality of what drops goes up otherwise it just makes farming even harder.

For anyone interested, the exact requirements for the Monthly are now:

35 - Skeleton Special Enemy kills

35 - Legendary item finds

10 - Incursion wins

So i was wondering, but what caused this terrible Monthly wipe bug? If it's easy to explain i mean.


Because that was... rather terrible.

You make it sound like you're overly generous by chopping the monthly mission requirements in half... but seriously... Having wasted tons of time trying to get those hulk's to spawn just to get the monthly progress reset... I spend at least 50 hours the last 14 days just to kill hulks, and i made it to 42 before my progress got reset. The monthly ends on October 27th... thats 11 days left, and you cut the requirements in half?

I don't care about the decorative pet. Im done wasting my time. Have a gg everyone.

Sorry for the frustration! Because of the resetting issue, if you had the Monthly Mission unlocked before today's patch, you should have the Bearkira pet in your inventory now. Also as a heads up, in our Spooky event at the end of the month, there will be skeleton bosses to help you get the Monthly Mission.

I really love how you listen to players, aweome work! Although It must be hard to find the balance between what people ask and what you know the game really needs.

 

Difficulty balance was a need.

Have fun~ the game is not fully released and if bugs upset you then you should know that an unreleased game will have these problems.


Don't act confused or angry at an unfinished game for being ...that, unfinished.

Can you do something about NM3-4 iPWR drops? the first map drops 605-610 iPWR and is recommended you have 800 iPWR to beat. I can beat it with 560 iPWR, but after over 10 runs of the map I haven't gotten a single better item. Anything over that is way too hard, I have a wall squire and trap huntress, I don't want to grind anymore without any progression and people in match making are only low levels or people from nm1 who try to leech on me. I know you said that we should use item passives and builds to be able to beat them, but this is a little insane and I don't get any item improvements no matter what. None of the people I play with are as high as me either because they have half given up on the game for it's grind until release.


btw, I have gotten my monthly reset 4 times, I saw PMasher's post about it. I saw the requirements was lowered today, but my progress was once again reset, I don't have any other details really, loaded in to tavern and then progress gone. Does that mean I get the pet and rewards automatically at next Ascension patch? Or are you forcing me to grind trough a lower requirement in fear of having it reset a 5th time?

NM4 is supposed to be that "challenge" that people seek after they complete NM3. NM4 isn't supposed to give you HUGE boost in power in comparison to NM3, but at the same time, it has to be rewarding, right? That's why NM4 is so much harder to beat, but so much less rewarding. Unlike the transition of any other Nightmares, where each new difficulty through 1-3 give you a considerable jump in power. I personally like this and support this idea. With these recent tower changes and new stat allocation system, i finally beat my first NM4 map after the wipeageddon (was playing another game for some time, so DD2 kinda fell to the background) and boy it felt good.

Also, you will receive Bear Kira with the next Ascension patch, as pmasher, i believe, stated previously. Only requirement for that is that you have missions unlocked. Which you do.

If you don't have the Bearkira, submit a request to our Support Team, and they'll help you out.

When does the Monthly quest reset? I'm going to assume the 31st of October?

The next Monthly Mission begins on the 1st of November, so you have until October 31st to complete the mission.

I have been one of thsoe who felt Campagn on Normal was too easy, so I'm happy you adjusted this so quickly! Will check in out on the week-end!

Good change. Now I only need to kill 10 more special Skeleton enemies. I was already about to skip this monthly as impossible.


BTW, Squire Hearty Blockade gear is still broken - no blockade health bonus.

So I think there's something I'm misunderstanding or else wise.

I logged in today and checked my inventory, pet bag and mail box and there's no sign of a Bearkira.

Is Bearkira the name of this months pet? Because I'm 4 skeletons away from finishing it now with the new changes.


EDIT: I've sent a support email just in case, I didn't really want to bother the team if I was just misunderstanding something though.

This was a miscommunication on my part, and I apologize. The Bearkira pet will be given to players on October 27th with the release of Ascension Part II. I'm truly sorry about that.
