when does the update come out?


Recommended Posts

The reply I got on Facebook was "let's just say less than 2 months" which probably means more than 1 month at least. 


A little longer than Id like.

With d crit intrinsically meshed into all factors of the game this will be a huge hassle to change.

Anything that affects crit numerically will have to change as it will now have to be a function of dp or an additive affect to the percentage currently in play.

How will frosty work, boost aura, buff beam initiate’s boost ability and other mechanics.

Lots to figure out in the code, test and balance.

I suspect hot fixes to follow as things will inevitably be missed.

Well since there's a lot of stuff that's coming and obviously there's more unannounced. I don't think I would blame Trendy.

I am not blaming them per say. I just wish they didnt tell us a big update was coming so far out. I hate waiting, and I feel like I lose my hype for it if it is too far away.

I think you are missing a very big KEY issue here. On the forum we have demanded more info further out for ages. In the past they have only leaked info in the week or two before it dropped, which is not much of a heads up. We have begged and begged for more overall transparency - which is exactly what they are trying to do with this release, giving us way more info, a lot further out. Yes - we would all love a date, but just the fact they are sharing so much of their plans with us is a huge change, and extremely welcomed from most of us.

I had to wait half a year for Terraria 1.3. I'm pretty sure some peeps have waited more than that. 

2 months is not that bad.

LOL true dat. For some of us older folk, waiting long times was the norm back in the day. Instant gratification is a luxury of the Millennial age for sure. Saw a movie you liked? Most likely be 1-2 years before it was out on video. Want a sequel to that cool summer blockbuster? Be more like 3-5 years. Want that next book? 1-2 years at least. Video game updates? Never existed - you got what you got, and if it was buggy you lived with it. 

So just saying, in retrospect and perspective - a few months is a drop in the bucket for some really great sounding changes. Feel like i am waiting for - santa.png, bring me presents!!!!! LOL

I think you might mean Generation Z. Millenials (Gen Y) were born between the years 1981 and 1996 (so they would be ages 22-37). A good portion of Millenials are used to that waiting period.

Also the update is not coming out in a few months. Or even a couple months. It's less than a couple months, by a good amount. ;)

I hear what you are saying, but i did mean what i said. I am a late Gen-X, so i remember the times before videos were even offered to rent. It wasn't until almost the mid-80's until that was even an option, and the delay and cost was huge at that time. It was still many years later until the first "previously viewed" movies became something they would sell to you so that you could even own your own movie. Crazy idea at the time. Gen-Xers were children through the 80's, which was one of the greatest cartoon and toy times to be alive. Commercialism reached new heights during that time, and along with that came the speed at which new products came to the market. By the time the early Gen-Y's were coming around and the Millennials, the time it took for new products to come out had increased significantly, and buying things like CDs, movies, and games were commonplace by then. By the late 90's, things were flying off the conveyor belts from manufacturers. It was slightly delayed gratification (as compared to Gen-Z's) but still lightning fast as compared to what Gen-X saw, let alone Baby Boomers. Gen-Z's get too see the entire age of instant gratification (or at least what we think is instant by toady's standards). Times for everything just keep speeding up. The only thing i can really remember taking a long time to come out, where everyone was waiting for it but we still had to wait a long time - was Star Wars movies (as George had them on a mandatory 3 year spacing) and anything released by Blizzard. I am sure there are countless more examples, but these were two of the biggest ones i can remember. 

So to your point, i think each age keeps seeing dramatic changes in how products move from concept to merchant floor (or in today's parlance - for download). To me as a Gen-X, the Gen-Y/Millennials had it so much easier on wait times, but of course the Gen-Z's blow that out of the water. I don't think any of these groups are very accustomed to waiting years for something. It is not commonplace in today's culture to wait that long for anything anymore, whereas in the days when i was a child, that kind of time frame was extremely commonplace. 

I will just add at the end, this is a lot of over generalization, so it does not apply to everyone from those time periods by any means. i am sure any of you can be the opposite of what i have said. Just my observations from life. Take it or leave it.

Sorry for off-topic, but I just wanted to second that. While I am not an 80's kid (I'm from 1983), I think some of US/JP cartoons/animes made their way to us in the 90's. Back then it took some more time for that stuff to conquer new areas. Some time has passed since then but I am still glad for any Hero Turtles reference eg. ;-)

So very true. Anime did not even exist when i was a kid in the USA. I only saw some of it slowly coming in the late 90's and only movies really. Ghost in the Shell, Akira, Ninja Scroll...these were the early genre breakers. It really was not until Funimation brought more anime (including DBZ) to the limelight and anime started to really take off here. By the 2000s we were finally getting full shows and movies coming over in DVD  release, and only in the last decade do we now get obscure stuff and non-dubbed series coming out like wildfire. That does not even include all the streaming now also available. Now, we have so many titles, it is hard to know what is even good or not. I am super happy that the anime finally penetrated the US market in full. Took a long time to get here. Now if only some of the awesome shows we only got partial seasons for back in the day could release the rest of their seasons here...and fully dubbed (yes, i am a dub lover), then that would complete the circle IMO. I already own so much anime...love this genre. Seems like the USA just does not get it at times, mostly thanks to years of Disney conditioning i think. Cartoons = children, is how too many look at it. They are sooooooo missing out.

Thanks!!!!!! 

I think it's pretty darn cool that this game can appeal to gamers of multiple generations. Same cannot be said of a lot of games. Go DD2!!!!!!

    I'm from Gen X as well (1975) and anime  did exist, it was just hard to find, and thanks to the "moral majority" of the 80's it was mostly killed off.  There are actually a lot of great titles for anime from the 70's and early 80's.  If you've never seen any check out the original Heavy Metal, Fire and Ice, or even Watership Down. 

    The last title Watership Down really messed me up as a kid I think.  The thought was that animation was cartoons and cartoons were for kids.  It's a movie about some very serious political and social issues that we deal with even today told from the perspective of an over populated rabbit warren.  Of course a movie about talking rabbits is for kids, so at 5 years old I got to watch cute little bunnies beating and killing each other in rather graphic fashion.   Not something I'd recommend at that age but if your looking for some good vintage American anime check it out.

Since I really like how this topic is evolving I have created a new one here. I think our conversation fits better into the off-topic section.

Would be cool if we'd continue there.
