Curious to how many players have stopped playing and are just waiting for some sort of hotfix?

Recommended Posts

I would take a break for a hotfix but i want to get the monthly done and over with so i am toughing through it. Who knows how long we will have to wait for (working) fixes to this stuff.

I am getting there...    Too much stick, not enough carrot.   I am currently trying to progress through nightmare 1 and it is agonizing.  I might take a break and wait till they iterate again.

I am leveling my characters.  I am not going to even attempt end game content until some things are fixed.

On the leveling side, the 5 daily map bonuses help a lot.  They got that one right at least.  I wonder what happened to the loot bonus that I saw on the first day?  It is all XP now.

I am enjoying defending the crystal from baddies in NM1. I see no problems with enjoying the process of defending. It's fun to spend couple hours daily. It's good. While i agree that NM became pretty hard now, i do not find it "agonizing" or "frustrating" as i am having fun playing the game. Spoiled folks be mad 'bout not getting freebies from NM4 incursions anymore =(

Like others I am leveling alt heroes in End Game Insane to diversify builds as well as work toward completing the monthly mission. If I happen to get enough upgrades with Hearty Blockade and Frosty Power I may try to jump back in to NM1 prior to a fix ... though I'm hoping for a hotfix sooner rather than later. I'm also wondering whether a near-term hotfix will actually turn some of my currently worthless 240 gear (because of wrong passive values) into gear that is actually helpful.

The difficulty is bad overall it turns away any casual players, thats the last thing you want in a free2play game it would make sense if NM4 had a ridiculous difficulty curve but 1-3 are way harder then they should be.

The monthly pet and some wyvern tokens is all I can work towards right now.

My gear is so broken from the re-rolls that NM is impossible and lower levels drop no loot improvements.

I've farmed gear under lv 240 so I wouldn't have to worry about the rerolls, so I can farm NM1 pretty safely. But as Is, I can only get an upgrade every once in a full moon, and thats a +10 upgrade on stats. That is no way to get into NM2, specially since they'll probably reroll again in light of recent exploits during this weekend. So I didn't completly quit, I log in to hatch eggs and daily quests, but that's about as much as I need to play, cause I don't even want to anymore at this point. The balance is a joke at best, the bugs are so abundant that I wonder why they took it out of pre alpha and don't get me started again on that hero deck.

I've stopped after finishing the first monthly & getting all 4 chars lvl 50, though that was awhile ago. 

But I am not waiting for a hotfix instead I'm waiting for more content as I believe I've played through all the meaning full content the game has to offer currently, perhaps when there's a true end game I'll start playing again.

No one is spoiled and mad about not getting freebies. They are mad because NM is just terrible right now, and there's nothing fun about mobs having ludicrous amounts of HP, while defenses whittle away at the health at a snails pace.

It's not fun for most, and taking a look at the forums makes that very obvious.

It's XP bonus in Free Play and Loot bonus in End Game.

I am defending the game that i like and approaching things from a positive perspective, rather than negative. I try to focus on what i like rather than dislike, what would i like to see improved and in what way, rather to destroyed or removed,  but also i do not turn the blind eye to the flaws of the game. 

I welcomed you to the forum seeing as this was your first post, but judging from 100% of your posts so far, i can tell you will be one blind, dumb, and unpleasant person overall to discuss things with.

We already have abundance of hate and dissatisfaction going on on these forums the past several weeks. I can confidently guess that you will spill dirt on Trendy with 80% of your posts whenever a gamebreaking bug shows up and another items "adjustment" comes while the topic's still hot and not many is affected by it. 

Have a nice..evening?

Just started being able to do NM1 but know people doing NM3 so have some pieces of IPWR 400. Even with half decent frosty I can't carry people everyone has to be active and have an idea what to do. If the drops were better then I'd feel some sort of progression but we can't even farm wave 1s anymore so no key to getting better.

It's obvious they are mad about the NM4 quality loot not dropping from NM2 monsters (the previous NM4 HP-wise). What is fun then? Facerolling through the Nightmares 1-3 in 2-3 days? Please. 
I am not disagreeing with EVERYTHING you all are angry about. I do agree the difficulty is a little too high for NM1-3. However, you can solo through NM1 content right now with gear, farmed in Insane maps. The problem, imo, lies in NM2-3 balance rather than NM1.

Like many others said, I'm working on leveling more characters and getting monthly done. NM as it is now is not fun and not rewarding. Too much time to complete a map and get scavanger-bad loot (yeah, that bad). Will see what this week brings us. I like the idea of having a very hard mode (NM4), but since even NM1 is a pain in the ass to do (unless you are an exploiter or have gear that you got exploiting), the way endgame is right now is not appealing to me.

I'd like to have a kind of easy type doing NM1, a kind of hard time moving to NM2, a challenging time moving to NM and a fairly frustrating but properly rewarded time moving to NM4.

Btw, DD1 had a much better solution than DD2 for NM: adding new types of enemies. Increasing defense/power/speed is just not fun. Game difficulty is completely unbalance. Also the way onslaught is scaling right now after wave 10 sucks, even for normal onslaught.

Really, if they had only added dark elves to nightmare instead of adding ludicrous amounts of hp to mobs, it would add soooo much more difficulty without actually changing any other numbers or touching the other mobs. WIsh they took the whole week to fix this patch instead of releasing a hotfix that will probably just screw over other stuff as usual.
