  1. Opening alpha/beta up to paying users has it's benefits for Trendy, but it also means they open the doors to players that aren't used to, or don't want to provide feedback in a constructive and mature manner. It's just the way it is :( While people don't directly provide suggestions, they do so inadvertently. I'm sure Trendy will realize people don't like vacuuming, and the obvious progression of that is to allow their homeless dude to hit the battlefield once the dust has settled. I also wish people weren't so childish with their responses. It would make Trendy's job a little easier.
  2. I made a post on the loot and survive patch suggesting people be a bit more rational with their criticism. Honestly, this is the intertrons, it's not going to happen. I think Trendy are all grown up enough to realize this and understand that people are passionate about their game and passionate about the amount of time they spend playing their game, and that this may result in some heated words when things go awry, At the end of the day, feedback, even if it's in the middle of vitriol, is better than silence. Unfortunately, Trendy may be somewhat responsible for the childlike behavior.
  3. I was able to get a drop after about 30 runs, and my patience was definitely running thin. The experience reminded me of playing vanilla WoW, running an instance over and over again in the hopes that a piece of a set drops. And while I stopped playing WoW a very long time ago, I'm pretty sure they introduced a token system that rewarded achievements in The Burning Crusade. They did this because grinding for hours on end with no sense of progression is pretty unsatisfying. However, I do like the idea of timed events that offer unique rewards, particularly when it's combined with something
  4. My main is a squire, but I leveled a mage specifically to deal with the large groups of bomb throwers and little goblins. Pre-patch it kind of didn't matter which dps tower you used, now I've had to use a mix. If I stick with squire I can't take out the goblins fast enough. Just mage loses single target dps. Monk should work too, but my monk is still tiny, so he doesn't make much of an impact. I don't know, I've had to be a lot more thoughtful with this patch. I think part of the feeling of towers being weak might also be the balance of loot progression. Pre-patch you were getting reli
  5. Nice, thanks for the taking the time to write a sensible reply. On a side note, I just solo'd the ramparts on normal free play, and it was much more satisfying than doing it on the pre-patch incursion. It took me about 7 or 8 builds in between some item farming. Yeah, the apparent increase in ranged minions combined with the attack speed nerf and targeting issues (ballistas!) makes it a real pain in the arse; however, it also makes tower placement a lot more important (corners are your friends). I guess that's the hard part of developing a hybrid game like this and trying to offer so ma
  6. So, you expect to go from 'zero to hero' in two days when they have added about 5 new difficulty levels?
  7. I think I have about 400 hours on DD1, and I never saw towers shooting half way across the map, or towers shooting at mini-gun speed. I stopped playing before most of the expansions came out. My point is that there was a lot of game to be played before Trendy decided to up the stats to uber level. I'm totally on board with people voicing their opinions, but we should hold off on the hyperbole until the game has had time to develop. More importantly, I think you shouldn't feel like the game is broken at this point. Trendy is really good at listening to feedback, you just need to have some
  8. Get some inspiration from your boredom :P [URL=http://s578.photobucket.com/user/shudster/media/BoredSquire_zpsj9meolsk.jpg.html][IMG]http://i578.photobucket.com/albums/ss224/shudster/BoredSquire_zpsj9meolsk.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
  9. http://html5.cubicleninja.com/dd/index.htm?layout=645 Similar to HKSmaster, this build is based on the idea of thwarting warriors. That's how I roll it with fairly high stats. But, that build has 50 DU remaining, so you have plenty left to beef it up if need be.
  10. Cyrup, you're clearly a smart guy, and you've expressed your frustration in, what I feel, was an appropriate and literate manner. Nice posts. See the responses you've had? That's why I stopped posting on forums years ago. Four paragraphs is a wall of text? If people can't handle 2 minutes worth of concentrated comprehension .... I don't even know how to finish that sentence.
  11. I have exactly the same problem. Game freezes, can't alt-tab, have to start task manager and end the application, and even then sometimes it refuses to close, forcing a system restart. Latest drivers installed, etc. No idea what's going on.
  12. My suspicion is that people see an assassin and run away because they know they'll get shredded from past experience. So they leave their towers undefended. Their towers should rightfully be shredded at that point, concur? BL4zD, I really appreciate the tone of your posts dude, you're clearly a smart guy that is attempting to keep things civil; props. What actually happens in game is the opposite of what you described. Amongst my friends, its common knowledge that if you don't want your turrets to get shredded by warriors, you should not stand anywhere near them. Insane spooky for exam
  13. First of all, there is no need to be aggressive. Secondly, this mode for the time being is going to be mostly community driven and balanced. We look at everything and will make changes, but if people complain about the current state of things I will simply ignore it. Its Pre-Alpha for a reason. Haven't played CTF, don't particularly care about it. However: Tsuda, he was not aggressive in the slightest. And, compared to the majority of posts on this forums, he was actually fairly constructive, not simply being a complaining little brat. I don't know dude, I think you could have save
  14. : of a comparably geared, though tower specced squire, killing the ancient dragon faster that a DPS huntress. Please.
