    This is something I spent some time working on for the nightmare update, so hopefully it helps :)

    You all act like you've never seen a video game company meet a deadline in the last hour before? This is typical for any gaming company. "We will release by Q4!" and then they release on 9/30 at 11:59 PM. Also, CG doesn't lack communication as much as you think. Anyone who works in management knows you don't release incomplete / inaccurate information, internally or externally, unless you are absolutely certain you can be held to that information. How about we all wait and see what happens by 6 PM EST (closing time for CG) today, and if no news comes out, then you can start blowing up the forums with complaints? Plus, it's my birthday today, so either I'm playing MHW: Iceborne, or DDA in NM... either way, today is a good day.

    I appreciate everyone's feedback on the topic, I'll pass this along to the UI Design team and work with them to see if we can find a way to address some of these issues :)

    Preach! This is spot on. You know, it's sad that people get upset about a push back in release dates. It's kind of pathetic, especially over a two day delay. 1) You all likely have a plethora of other games you could play instead... or perhaps FaceTime your family and make sure they aren't sick and have food in the pantries. 2) The level of entitlement is baffling, thinking we, the consumer, have some right to hold a developer to a deadline. No one is more upset / bummed than CG themselves. 3) We now have word about a hard date, April 2, for this update. Not some ambiguous month estimate. Can we all be happy with that for the moment? How about this as a thought? It was either CG delayed this deadline by two days to ensure we all still get the NM release in a responsible amount of time, OR they could have all stayed in the office and gotten COVID-19... I'm sure the latter definitely wouldn't have delayed release dates. So, everyone that wants to belly ache, quiet down and be patient. CG is taking this delay so they might not have further delays from illness / death.

    I would love to see better auto loot filtering. 1) Multiple rules on an AND logic basis. (IE: Auto any item that is LEGENDARY, AND auto Accessories that are equal or better to EPIC). Right now, IIRC, selecting LEGENDARY and ACCESSORIES will give me all legendary gear plus all accessories regardless of quality. I could be wrong on this... but I know it isn't the best setup. 2) Along the same lines, have a rule form as one of the fields would also be nice. (IE: Auto items with "Power Level," that is "Greater Than," "800", of "LEGENDARY," quality) Right now, I can't specifically tell the game not to auto loot all the crap 525-600 legendary drops. So I have to sort by power level and lock items, then sell all which isn't user friendly.

    Wanted to add my agreement to these comments; I don't use twitter, facebook or instagram and can't keep up with the discord, but I have the DDA forums bookmarked and I check them daily for any and all Chromatic posts.

    Sorry but i gotta defend Batophobia here, whilst at the same time i understand your point this has to be said. The DD community is understanding of COVID-19 and the entire world is being effected, its out of CG's hands and we get that, and in their COVID-19 post, if they had said "Hey guys because of this we can't promise to meet our deadlines but we will still try our best as we adapt to the circumstances", and its not unreasonable to be upset the day of release for the update to only find out then that it will be delayed, the delay itself is understandable and i get it man i do but they MUST have known before the 11th hour that they had 2 days more of work to do so once an official decision was made, they could have told Mary to post a little update such as "We are afraid we discovered a few bugs in the last moment and we may have to release the update late, once we know for sure when we will release the update we will post again" or not even that it could just be "Things have slowed down more than expected due to COVID-19 and we are still getting adjusted to working from home so the march update has been pushed back, we'll update you when we know more" Nothing about that is unreasonable, they are a professional company and we are the customers who backed them, we are definitely owed some information as most of the people here backed them through kickstarter or backerkit and whatnot before they had even started coding the game so it was an investment. Wanting to know how our investment in the game is progressing is not being entitled, obviously not many people invested more than the basic packages that includes the game, but some of us gave loads more to support them. In short, WE UNDERSTAND the delays, and all we ask for is regular communication with us because we put our hopes and money into the future of this game and this company. Also i wouldn't say that we are mad, we are just upset and telling them, they could do better in terms of communication. Obviously all of our priorities are on fighting COVID-19 and staying safe, im glad your parents survived this pandemic and we will make it through this, but we can't let this virus shut down the planet, and CG didn't say "Due to COVID-19 we are forced to shut down" instead they said they will try to keep the goals which given whats going on is admirable and to have ONLY a 2 day delay in my books is impressive it just would have been nice to know a little earlier, some of us made plans to have an early weekend to have some fun and take our minds OFF this crappy pandemic for a while, but unfortunately some people have to bring it up everywhere everyday in this a gaming forum. Sorry if i rambled a little bit there and got somewhat repetitive.

    I disagree. It's more like if the people that funded Apple to build the next iPhone wanted to be given a heads up if their "spring" release suggestion had potential to not be met. Many of the users here backed them from Kickstarter, and a lot of those users already feel betrayed by the PS4/Xbox release delay. Also, there's no demanding that we be told all the secrets. We're not asking for solid dates or even what content is coming next. We just want to be respected enough to be informed when there might be a delay. If we planned to go to the movies together and I told you a few minutes before showtime that I want to reschedule for a couple days later, you'd have good reason to be upset. If I told you the day before that I might have to reschedule, there's much less of a problem. This is 100% accurate, and I could be completely wrong. I just think we live in an era where you can make little comments to defuse potential problems later. Again, not a full write-up update like they have been doing (which are great for official announcements), but quick comments intended to keep people in the loop. Someone on the forums noticed that a dev mentioned a potential delay, they spread that info as a delay seems inevitable, the userbase is understanding because they were given a heads-up, CG can write up an official announcement for whoever doesn't dig through the forums. Again, not in PR, so this could entirely be wishful thinking and rose-colored glasses. This is the part that is important. I think the majority of users here trust CG when they say they are delaying things to make it better. They've proven that they are working hard and making improvements. If they need to delay things, I don't doubt that most people will be more than accepting because they believe the result will be a better product. After all, "a delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad".

    I mean, Im still enjoying the game and biding all the time I can to try to find the best gear atm Plus with all this COVID I hope everyone is safe and healthy and gives the team a bit of slack. Despite being excited for new updates, and wanting a pretty tight update schedule, I can accept that the devs and generally their studio lost days worth of work responding to the outbreak. Stay safe and healthy everyone, and defend your crystals

    Yeah seriously. That's one improvement I've basically wanted since DD1, because an "upgrade" is so rarely actually one it's kind of horrific.

    "All you need to do in order to enter is farm a Polly from Buccaneer Bay survival, Wave 25 and post a screenshot of it UNUPGRADED" (Unupgraded) that polly looks like it was upgraded 421 times.

    The invite / joining flow is something that we've heard a good amount of feedback on and looking at what we can do to improve it, and I believe there also some weird issues preventing players from joining one another that also need to be looked into.

    All I am hearing you say here is that you want to use other social media sites to bump up your search engine results to make DDA and Chromatic Games more prevalent in that area, I used to own a web design firm as with many websites so I fully understand how all that works. I however strongly fell that you guys should have a place on the forums to post about small so called “smaller victories” As already mentioned not everyone sees the “smaller victories” because they don’t use the some or all the social media

    Thanks for the suggestion! We've heard feedback from others about wanting a better way to be able to compare upgraded items vs ungraded items and its something we are looking into how we could improve on.

    Lots of opinions here. at the end of the day we will get to battle the old ones eventually in NM but we as fans of dungeon defenders understand that there is tough times in the world at the moment.

    You misunderstand my point. I don't care if there needs to be a delay. In fact, I think the entire community would be more than accepting if they had just come out and say it. The problem doesn't even lie in their not acknowledging it until the last minute. Honestly, even being a backer before there was a product isn't a factor. It comes from them continuously reassuring everyone that the March deadline is still expected to be met until the deadline is here and then giving notice about it. It is not about 2 days, its about telling us one thing and changing it at the last minute. Imagine if instead your ski resort assured you that they were still operating fine and you were welcome to enjoy your vacation on the proposed date, but the day of they told you they need a few days before you can come. You'd probably think "man I sure wish you'd have told me sooner". Exactly this.

    1) In the Covi update, we were told The roadmap called for March release, so it's entirely reasonable to expect a release on 3/31. To have the first hint at a delay to come on 3/31 comes across as a bit disrespectful, since it seems unlikely that they didn't have any idea there would be a delay until day-of. 2) This is definitely not the first instance of communication issues with CG. Just looking through some of the various threads here, you'll see communication has been a problem pretty much since the beginning. Don't get me wrong, it is much better than it was. I think a lot of us just assumed that the hiring of a community manager would play out differently than it has been. Perhaps iamisom just spoiled us, perhaps the forums are just deader than I think. Nothing against Mary, she has been wonderful and a big reason why the communication is better now. In fact, I'd love to see more than a post a day from her! 3) There was only assurance that the deadline would be met. The DD community is quite understanding and forgiving. The problem was that every interaction with CG included something like "but it still is on track for March". To go back to the movies analogy, imagine we have the outing set and you mention "there's that illness going around, but don't worry, still planning on being at movie night." Don't be afraid to say "this sickness is kinda nasty, but hopefully won't have to push back the schedule a little bit." The later still insinuates that the timeline is on track, but offers reasoning in the event something goes wrong. If we reschedule at the 11th hour, it's more understandable.

    You all can´t read they postet a view days ago that because of Covi-19 they have to get there workers safe. So yeah they communicat a lot. And on 31.03 they said it get a bit of a delay because they wanna polish a bit more. So yeah i don´t understand why you all say something against there communication....

    This is what the entire community is thinking explained perfectly. Loads of people have commented on their lack of communication in different ways, some across as mean, some are constructive criticism saying they could do this or that better, but really this is exactly how we all feel. We had a date, i booked a romantic evening at the best fine dining restaurant, i'm sitting at the table early with excitement in my heart ready for a lovely time to find a text message saying you can't make it and we should try for another day, its a fair reason to be upset.

    The logic of "2 day delay should be known 2 days out" is flawed, but the point you make is accurate. My bet would be there were some bugs the testers found that CG were uncomfortable releasing. Maybe a new save-wiping thing? As a developer, I am aware that we can be notoriously bad at estimating how long something takes to fix, and often times those estimates don't include more testing. And I get it, you want to be optimistic about meeting your proposed schedule. Developing is tricky and unexpected things show up, we understand. All we ask is for communication so we don't feel left in the dark. These forums are some of your biggest supporters and the DD community is fantastic. We're not here to kick while you're down. Even with the lack of communications, we still try to stand up and defend you. If you let us in on what's happening, we can better understand and further help defend when things happen. I don't think anyone is expecting a full press release on every little thing, just when you have an official decision on those. I just want the conversations to include the forums. A quick post like "We're still hopeful to release in March, but bear with us if we need to push it back a couple days" can go a long way. The work being done is really showing. It's come a long way since the beta and it only looks to be getting better. Keep up the great work, and just try to keep us in the loop going forward.

    I'm not sure if there was a limit in DD1, but you could definitely have more than 12 heroes. I think it's unlikely they will introduce a limit that would delete characters for legitimate users DD1 had special drops for each boss, I would plan on DDA also having special items.

    You already got an official answer. But nevertheless I would like to point you to this spreadsheet. There you will find the current scaling behaviour of all defenses for every stat and more stuff, that might be interesting. The following things do not scale (yet): Strength Drain - Damage Reduction, Ensnare Aura - Slowdown, Lightning Tower - Chain Length (max targets). It is good to see the first two addressed already very soon. Hopefully the Nightmare update will also include changes for the Lightning Tower, because as it is right now, it is rather underwhelming.

    This is the problem. The continue to insult fans by lieing to them. Sure technically if they release any time today it's a march release. But for some people didnt get a march release. Also calling it now april release will be delayed till late may at best. They are either overly ambitious or overly incompetent on how long things actually take.

    Would be nice to hear from them about it though, how they are adapting to the pandemic, how they intend to keep working and all that, i bit of communication would be nice, but so far i believe all we know is something like they are still on track for march that was said a few days ago, no actual information or communication. They might be in a difficult situation which i could complete understand and sympathise with but truth is they have told us nothing so we cant even understand their current circumstances.

    Soon will be April 1 still no Update Hm.. , but you still have some hours left , so i hope so you will follow your plan and still launch on March , otherwise if you see you are not manage on March i think you need inform community it will be a dely and launch will be on April. It will not add reputation points if you have bad contact with community .

    I see, thanks for clarifying the problem. I'm not really sure I have a hard answer for this but maybe you can either try (if you hadn't already) replaying Gates of Dragonfall all the way to The Ramparts together in one sitting without returning back to town or tavern and see if that works? Or maybe have your friend try The Ramparts solo and then you both re-converge at the next map (The Throne Room). Hope that helps.

    Hey there, hope you don't mind letting me know on the specifics of why you both keep failing on ramparts? Also which campaign difficulty are you both on too? Normal or Hard? As for The Wyvern's Den, you might want to avoid building on cursed spots (each wave a patch of black would appear on the ground). They weakens your defenses horribly.

    Hey there, I'd put the banjaxed on the sword replacing favorable winds since in the long run, that mod wouldn't be that optimal. But if you like gaining speed after kills, you can also replace storm ship instead if you don't mind losing the elemental combo. I wouldn't recommend putting that mod on the Apprentice's staff if he's ability based since there are way better mods to insert like Exploding Volley Chip and Focused AP Chip. Hope this helps!

    Personally I would love to see the DD1 system restored. It was amazing. You could interact with your tavern keeper and all from the same location could create and manipulate folders like a file manager. Create and label folders. Hide some folders. Set folders as market folders where you can set prices and sell items etc. Even without the market system a system of folders and sub folders would be soooooooo Nice! The filter system is so horrible compared to what DD1 was.

    Maybe its just me but I don’t like to sort threw a mountain of gear, yes I know FILTERS but I would like a system so that I can have a bag for say my Monk so that all looted gear for a set type will go to that bag as with Monk only weapons so say my Monk wears Miner gear I could set a bag so that all miner gear goes to that bag, or say a bag that is for pets only That’s how I had it set up in DD2 so its probably just me so I fully understand if you guys are not interested in doing it, plus I am old and just set in my ways

    Can you elaborate more on what issues / frustrations you have with the current system? So we have a better idea of what people might want and why and then use that to make changes based off feedback.
