  1. Thanks everyone. I'll miss all of you too. Dungeon Defenders has been a huge part of my life these last 6-7 years. If you want to keep in touch, just follow me on twitter [[14,users]] :). From now on, I'll be eagerly awaiting every DD2 patch like the rest of you!

    New Hero: Round 2

    With Man & Machine stealing Round One in a last minute victory, there are still two more rounds to vote in until you've chosen our new Hero -- The Barbarian, The Man & Machine, or The Mystic. Vote Here: https://dungeondefenders.com/2/initiatives/45 Here’s how it works: Three heroes will compete in a round-robin tournament. The hero with the most Influence Points from all three rounds together will be our next hero! Every day, you’ll gain one Influence Point for logging into the game and another Influence Point for logging into the site. (2 Total Points per day.) Use your points here and on our launcher to vote for your favorite hero(es). You can spend as many points as you’d like per round! Here are the rounds and dates for voting: Round 1: Man & Machine vs. Mystic (May 14th to May 19th)Round 2: Barbarian vs. Mystic (May 20th to May 26th)Round 3: Man & Machine vs. Barbarian (May 27th to June 2nd) This is Round 2: Barbarian vs. Mystic. The Barbarian. The ruthless brawler. The Barbarian is an unstoppable force that is yet to be unleashed on the Old Ones’ army. He prefers to rely on his own two hands and use his two weapons and a multitude of abilities to decimate hordes of enemies. Most heroes hide behind their walls and defenses; the Barbarian hides behind nothing. The Mystic.The twisted sorceress. Magic has been around in Etheria for quite some time. There is however an older magic -- a darker, more chaotic magic nestled deep within Etheria. The Mystic was once a thief, but now she carries inside her an ancient and dark serpent demigod. This demigod is the source of ancient and unimaginable magic that the Mystic wields. Most heroes have their defenses likened to their personality; the Mystic’s defenses are dark, twisted and represent the chaotic forms of the serpent god. She is a powerful ally on the battlefield, so long as she can control the fickle whims of her serpent lord. Who will you choose?https://dungeondefenders.com/2/initiatives/45
  3. Thanks! I'll have QA look into this :).
  4. We've released a small hotfix for Series EV2. Bug Fixes: -We've fixed a bug where you could generate ability mana as Series EV2. This is a blue/green deployment, so there will be no immediate downtime. In about an hour, if you haven't already gotten the new update you'll have to switch over.
  5. They'll be in your real mailbox!
  6. Hey all, Series EV2 ran into some technical difficulties. Current ETA is 2PM EDT. EDIT 1:36PM EDT: We're live! -Philip
  7. EV is releasing on May 19th. More maps and incursions (i.e. Glitterhelm which you all voted for!), will be coming shortly. We're trying to move to more frequent releases of meaningful content, as opposed to bundling everything up and making you guys wait a long time to get anything. Simultaneously, we have other folks working on the Matchmaking changes (server browser) + Game Revamp stuff as well as the Siege Tank, which will be releasing when they're ready :).
  8. It taunts nearby enemies... It was just bugged when we were recording footage. Good eye!
  9. The Harbinger is loosely based on him. Not sure if we'll ever see him exactly... but you never know!
  10. Just wait till you see the hero browser this patch ;).
  11. Hey guys! Moved to off-topic, since thread is not directly related to Dungeon Defenders 2.
  12. Constructive can totally be negative! Our views towards "tweaking" content constantly shifts during development. So take the following statement with a grain of salt, it could totally change but is a nice glimpse into how we think about things: Right now we recognize a lot of the systems in the game are broken. Because of this small tweaks only yield small benefits in the short term. So instead of incrementally making a lot of small tweaks separately, we are trying to focus on large groups of tweaks and changes that will finally get the system to a place where small tweaks will yield large benefits, long term. An example of this is the upcoming strategic revamp that Steven and Brett are working on. A ton of small tweaks and a few big ones to really radically break up the current meta and bring back variety and fun. Once that's in a good place, then small tweaks will have big effects that won't be overridden in just a patch or two. We're also trying to give ourselves the freedom to really experiment with things. For example, on Monday we're playtesting a build of the strategic revamp where a revamped LSA and Lightning Aura are default towers for the Monk. At the same time other people are working on new content like the Abyss Lord, which will factor into the total revamp in a delicious way. WARNING: The following thoughts are just my own, not the thoughts of a designer like Brett/Steven/People that are actually working on the strategic revamp: I imagine giving another of the base heroes a high damage single target defense will be a lot of fun. Hopefully along with the vast list of other changes we are making, it will create interesting and diverse choices with how to set up lanes with the revamped and more dangerous special enemies. However, personally, if we end up doing something like this I think we should change the element/art of the LSA so that there is a much more diverse set of combo activators in the game.
  13. I was super serious and keep checking back to see if it has 30 comments. Come on guys! I'm like itching to share these they're so cool. Here's one last tease: 
  14. I love this thread. I think it'd be awesome if someone started a dream patch notes thread. Kinda like this. Tempering expectations, we are working on a TON of gameplay changes but I don't think many of them are going to reach this next patch. Right now we're aggressively playtesting the complete strategic re-balance that Steven and Brett are working on, which I hope to play for you guys on the next devstream. It's still very much a work in progress, but it will definitely completely shake up everything once it comes out. I know it's been the most fun I've had playing Dungeon Defenders II in a long long time, so I hope many of you feel the same about it. In terms of gameplay-related work for this patch, we're prioritizing a lot of the Hero Deck changes that we discussed on the last stream ;).
  15. Hey all, Tomorrow we’ll be testing our new Blue/Green patch deployment process with Hotfix 8.4. The Hotfix will go live at 8:30 AM EST and at that time you can restart your client to get the update. There will be no downtime for this patch. At 10:00 AM EST we will shut off the old version of the games and all players will have to restart their clients to get the update. During the time period that both versions are live, players will not be able to invite friends from both versions. So if you get an error, either you or your friend will have to update to the new version. Thanks! Tomorrow will be our first time testing this patch process in the production environment, so expect some issues. Other than that, we hope the new process results in less downtime and more Dungeon Defenders II for everyone! -Philip
  16. Answers: Unlocking the mission, is just another way of saying you've beaten the campaign (Betsy) and can complete Monthly Missions now. Sorry for the confusion. So @[FF'A] Anomaly, you'll certainly get it! Everyone who has unlocked Monthly Missions will get the pet, Bearkira. Once we fix the bug, it will be significantly easier to get the tokens and the pet again, with the reduced mission requirements. Additionally, HINT: The Grave Danger Event with Ascension: Part II is gonna help too ;).
  17. Greetings Defenders, Right now there is a bug that will reset your monthly mission quest upon random loading of a Social Tavern. We're actively working on fixing this bug, but it's a nasty one that's persisted for a while now. Before today's patch this bug was extremely rare, but something about today's patch has increased the bug's velocity significantly. Luckily, with the influx of reports coming in, we'll probably be able to fix it once and for all soon (TM). In the meantime, everyone who has unlocked the October Monthly Mission before October 27th 12:00 AM EDT will receive the monthly pet, Bearkira, in their mailbox with the release of Ascension: Part II. We will also be significantly lowering the requirements of the monthly mission once we fix the bug, so you have an additional opportunity to gain the pet and the token rewards before the end of the month. TL;DR: Everyone who unlocks the October Monthly Mission before October 27th 12:00 AM EDT will receive the monthly pet, Bearkira, in their mailbox with the release of Ascension: Part II.Once we fix the bug, we'll be significantly lowering the requirements of the monthly mission, so you'll have an additional opportunity to gain the pet and the token rewards before the end of the month.
  18. Can someone take a video or screen of this behavior? Is everyone still holding L1 while pressing a tower key or are you holding L1 and then releasing L1 before pressing a tower key?
  19. Over the weekend, we believe we've found a solution to the "infinite black loading screen" and other joining session issues. Please let us know if you still have issues with these after the hotfix! BUGFIXES Fixed a memory leak on the servers that was causing players to experience an “infinite black loading screen.” Please let us know if you have any more issues joining games. Fixed an issue where pet reroll items would not leave the first inventory bag. Fixed an issue where the Monk Betsy weapon would spawn with depreciated primary stats or two hero damage stats.
  20. Update: We just killed a couple of stuck servers, so if you were unable to login in before you might be able to login now.
  21. Hey all, We really apologize for this problem. It's a really nasty bug that we've been firefighting over the past couple of weeks. We've discovered what the problem is at the end of last week and think we've found a solution this weekend. We are hoping to fix it first thing next week. Here's a sticky on the issue: STICKY THREAD. Here's a post from Brad Logston on the issue earlier this week:
  22. Greetings Defenders, If you're currently experiences issues where you try to load into the game, please restart the game and try again. We are currently experiencing a bug that is causing a memory leak on some servers. This is causing the servers to crash so, when you connect to them, you will be stuck on the black loading screen. Until the server is reset, anyone who loads into the server will experience this problem. Unfortunately, there is no way to insure you will get onto another server when you load back in. This is a pretty low level bug that we've been working on for the past week. We think we have found a solution to it this weekend and are hoping to release a fix early next week. Here's a post from Brad Logston earlier this week about this issue: Update 8/24: We believe we have resolved this issue over the weekend and have a fix for it in Hotfix 5.17 which will be live by 10 AM EDT on 8/24. Check out the hotfix notes here.
  23. Thanks for the suggestion! I'll pass it over to Josh when he gets back on Monday, and it's definitely something we'll consider.
  24. BUGFIXES Fixed an issue with premium pet eggs
