Press Your Luck and Panic Fire Spheres currently work for EV2’s Proton Beam when they should not.

What I'm getting from this is:

"EV2's proton beams are actually useful.  We don't want this.  We intended for the proton beam to be complete crap.  We want everyone to go back to archer spam."

Also, Yhx for the fix, dunno if it makes her really as good as AL or EV2 tho

Maybe a 4s bow would do that

No, proton beams are way out of any balance.... in OP sense (if crit dmg build is used)

I agree they are incredibly powerful, taking away the thing that makes them powerful doesn't balance them in this case.  They will still be incredibly unbalanced just in an unusable way.  If they are going to take those spheres away from EV2's proton beam they need to either increase the base stats of the beam or give the EV2 a sphere that makes the beams better.

I'm backing toaster up on this. Hey Devs, you go through all the effort to make EV2 and yet she is only used for one tower. Buff beam. That is the reality when you nerf the spheres. You could never fix the meta of frost/traps for months. Then you make archers spam possible....good GOD so boring. Then EV2 beams make the archers possible as only a support role for air, but no....lets stick with one build for the game. This community still sucks and is the most toxic.


For the record, I don't use either build. I enjoy actually trying to find new ways of combining classes and theory crafting. LA + ramster drench for stuns is amazing. Pair that with flamer throwers or cannons and things are fun to switch up. 100% success rate? No, but keeps the game fresh. You morons that want to farm with one build for 12 hours a day need to stay out of the progress of this game. Why don't you keep the proton beams working with those two spheres and make auras work with them too. I mean, for towers of any kind, when are they going to get hit on NM4 and not one shotted? Useless spheres.


Do you know protons also aggro flying kobolds? Doubt they are supposed to do that. Why not remove that and make them even more crap. I mean, having a 30 DU cost aggro for half the air in the game is a bad strategy right? Don't even want to log in and do my daily now. And for you haters wanting to rage at me, just piss off you insignificant whelps.

Dude, just shut it.  There is a reason the game still says alpha in the bottom right corner.  They're already said they are revamping the enemies and buffing the other heroes.  There are very few spheres for the ev towers so you can expect more of that also.  Basically in the next 90 days this game is going to change a lot and it's going to get much more difficult.  Why don't you offer a suggestion with a little bit of respect and read the other dev logs so you don't look like such a whiney fool.  Your complaints show you have no idea what's coming.

Im pretty sure that everyone knows that EV needs builder spheres. I totally agree that as they stand they are pretty op (proton beams that is). Frosty node with Frosty mage with those two spheres....Im not even in NM4 gear and if i get lucky i can let my proton beams melt the ogres with zero need for me to dps. That shouldn't be the case. Balance in the game is kinda all over the place at the moment and its something Trendy knows or else they wouldn't be looking into balancing the 4 original heroes to bring them up to par. Since as it is building without an AL or an EV is extremely difficult unless you happen to be pretty smart and really decently geared player. Its not impossible by any means, but its not nearly as easy as oh drop proton beams everywhere and cover air with archers and now go take a nap while they kill everything without even needing to up them for 2 waves (with the right build anyway).

Great, now all that perfect 743+ gear i grinded for the EV2 builder is going to be in the dumpster. Hopefully Trendy is busy with other things such as making new heroes or costumes or revamping the old ehroes and my beloved melty beams stay for a fer more months.

*sigh* i think that was it then with my builder EV.

I would understand if Oiling and Freezing Strike Spheres were not intended, but PYL and PF?
I mean...the beams deal damage by taking damage, whats wrong with that?

alex the penguin

dont forget that there is still the rework incoming that makes the endgame harder. currently both EV and AL are op...for now. So nerfing them now before we can even test them in their intended setting? nah come on, that will never work...

exactly...i was so happy that EV is finally useful and not just the BBB (Buff Beam B****) again.
Now this...no useful spheres for her builds, so she is again pushed into the dps and bbb section.

MamaTata

Sure they are out of balance, sure they are OP, but there is still the rework incoming that buffs all the other heroes and increases the difficulty, right?
Going back to OP Arches is boring too.

I really don't know what you mean by "toxic" because generally speaking, people in the DD2 game (actually all DD games) and on the DD (1, E 2) forums are really quite nice folk! Are there some who are just huge jerks & don't care that they are jerks? Yes. But, you will find some of those type in every community.


Have you played League of Legends & been on their forums? If not, I invite you to do so. There you will find what toxic really means. Cheers!
