  1. Note: there may of been confusion I am running it solo so does score = xp
  2. DPS are only ever used really when you need to kill a boss because it can't be done by towers alone, generally speaking is NM only and high waves
  3. An RPG is about grinding to get better gear thus progressing in the game :D No grinding is a 90s game design policy made to make a company get massive amounts of money ever from cash shop or paid subscriptions. It is dumb and pointless and makes game less fun overall. however being given uber items wares off real fast The best games reward the player for the spent time PLAYING This a superior design policy that the wider games industry is blind (due to ignorance and greed) Cough Dark Souls/torchlight 2 Cough both games can and are played by people the same amount of time grindy games the difference is the rewarding games are FAR MORE FUN all the time.
  4. 1) wrong survival is about lasting as long as you can. Doing the campaign would set you up better for survival but should not be a requirement because player A might want to play the campaign first Player B might just wanna play survivals catering to a large player base is always good as long as your not dumbing down difficulty directly to do it (e.g. making the game a cake walk by decreasing stats unless the majority of players cant progress past a point) 2) no they don't the enemies are still the same strength, This attitude is so fail that because its named X it must be Y difficult, The difficulty must be FUN and REWARDING because that is what games are FOR not due to a mechanic that exist outside of the model difficulty, that ever A) doesn't effect you because you can build or B) effects you by making you fail. without the timer you would still have to plan efficiently because you still have to build the same towers to pass the wave, doing so will not give an advantage that breaks the game (the mobs are still the same, the difficulty you CHOSE is the same) Your success is dependant of the same things build/stats You can even say just survival is harder than playing campaign because you wont have gear from it The restriction IS the problem stoping this Also there are some maps that are impossible solo with timers talay/crystal unless your stat's are uber/character run speeds. The whole point of a campaign mode is for the story, Survial is a challenge that is OPTIONAL (give or take if u want the best items BUT that STILL OPTIONAL) removing the tier/restriction on survival would allow players the OPTION to play how they want to PLAY hell you might even if as you said some people want it make it so every map no mater what difficulty has a OPTION to have a TIMER with increased rewards. good games design is about giving players OPTIONS. bad games design is FORCING players to play in a certain way
  5. your still wrong all that post equates to is I cant get it to drop so it must be hacked, wrong its rng being rng. Trendy have a very bad rng system. Not all Ult+ sets are hacked, Not all Ult+ Sets are legit get it, yet? unless you want to post drop tables from the DDDK all your doing is QQ tears
  6. cool i wasn't sure, cause the score raises by units and the xp lags behind. that is so much more helpful to know where to farm now
  7. this also kindof disproves the other thread about stat caps lol, yo mythical is better than yo ult
  8. If you make a game that has a survival mode, do not require the player to complete the normal map/boss. Reason to allow players to choose what they play and not restrict them that they may/or may not be able to do AND remove all build timers (its a pointless mechanic and hurts solo players) its pointless because A) player builds everything they need to pass the wave B) don't and fail This adds nothing to the game except failure
  9. You think PC is lazy with patches! Try going to console! They only got 4 patches out of the whole time the game was released! I think the speed of patches compared to them is quiet nice! :p the fact its the majority of those patches they don't have is a good thing lol being able to play the game pre app nerf would be AWESOME and dejin/sharken copters In summary Make new mobs optional because new mobs by definition changes the game mechanics (with better rewards for player with them) Don't nerf characters because someone can afk farm
  10. I never claimed they hacked the sets, I just said the chances of them having that many set is slim to none. The drop rate of ults is rediculous, the drop rate of ult+ is even more so. You can do the research if you want, I am just trying to save you the time. There is a chance they are legit, but there is a much higher chance that they are not. and so the course of action you want to take is ban everyone? Because there is no way to tell whats hacked or not if its got legit stats and not all maxed caped
  11. Never reached to one cap stats on my full ups ulti armor all I found. I have normal ulti amour got from misty, aq, cliffs that can reach stat caps, those are not the so called end game maps
  12. DD isn't a competitive game so my stance against cheating is "who cares ?" You don't have to play with cheaters, if a guy joins your game with too good to be true items, kick him. a guy that knows his stuff right there DD should of been like torchlight 2, a good RNG system to make it so players don't HAVE to hack to progress and hacking gear is worthless because USEFUL gear is easy to get. Players who hack effect nothing because I have an OPTION to play with them or TRADE, due to RNG being good. The only thing you can correctly whine about is a system like this prevents you from selling items for billions of mana, The simple thing is "haha" - simpsons This is the only effective solution in games that are PVE loot games without PVP/real life money If we where talking TF2/Dota 2 it be a different story but where not. I hate to break it to you mate but Kings Game is about as end game as you get, and you don't get frequent ult armor drops after 25+ trust me, I know. I am not saying the people with ult+ sets are hacked, I am saying that the chances of them gearing out all or even one of their toons in the brand new ult+ gear and getting a good drop is practically slim to none at this point.. Saying is proving, also scientifically YOU cant prove they have non legit because YOU are not THEM. They might run the shard maps and IF its possible for ULT+ to drop vary rarely, THEY MAY GET THAT DROP. Or any other maps depending on what THEY FIND to be the best farm. In other word just because you run an map 100 times and gets nothing doesn't mean someone else runs it once and gets multiple items. Also Yes there are people with hacked items of all levels, not all people with the best item sets are hacked. This type of attitude gets people who spent the time to get to end game get banned and has happens to people because some THINK an ITEM IS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE, and some IDIOT bans them because they are not looking into programming and chances and instead are backstabbing whiners hand holders. Hell there are people who report players in HOPES OF GETTING THEM BANNED One of the things air rivals had was if you where staff each item had a value number that only they could see and that could be used to to track where it was spawned and what stats it had. So changing those stats was lolfail
  13. You wrong there are people with legit ult+ gear, they are not you so therefore don't have to follow your logic and most likely have access to high end waves, 25-30, with the last waves OF EVERY MAP droping the best gear, kings game is not the only map. also this is dumb and stupid i played a game called air rivals and that has drop rates of 0.0000008% and there are many people who got those items. Luck+time, some people are a lot luckier than you and normal ult gear is common on high survival waves. (I have quite a few just from nmhcmm misty/aq) and that's not even really considered end game anymore. People in pubs wont tell you their builds cause well durr its their builds, +its time consuming in game or they just simply don't want to help you
  14. So lets see what your saying is because only some people (the ones you see, the ones not on forums) have the best items all must be hacked. hmm some maybe hacked BUT most are got from extremely high survival waves, e.g. ult is fairly common 25+ with the best being near the end. I can't say for ult+ cause i haven't done a run since that was introduced BUT there are harder/better maps than what I run so I don't see an issue with some people having the best. What i have an issue with is how to get a player from nothing to the best gear without help and trading. I agree, but it's not impossible to have this stuff with 300 hours, I've seen end-game players in 400-600 hours, but at 5 hours all it takes is a VERY good mate, unlikely but true. Trendy refuses to fix the rolling of stats/drop rate due to that end-game players have farmed for hours(supposedly) for their sets and such, and to change it now would mean they did it for nothing(supposedly). Now, stuff the idea of raising the drop rate who cares, people won't mind farming for hours for this gear IF.... the damn armour was good when it finally dropped, they have a max stat cap.. now they need a min stat cap.. they need a minimum of 150 ups, a minimum of 200 per stat, maybe tinker those. hrs do not tell you if a player should have x gear, due to A trading, B friends, you could take a new account thru the entire gcampiagn in a day prity much and then start farming higher maps if you have geared friends. Even better due to summoner that player doesn't have to worry about being useless. in adduction to that players can if they so desire play from fresh and KNOW builds what maps to play to grind out the game in a shorter time, (using gear got from other accounts if they want to) RAISING THE DROP RATES IN DD REWARDS THE PLAYER WITH HIGHER NEGATIVE STAT ITEMS. because the damm rng is bugged and trendy will never fix it, that + item deletion and gear not being separate with LIMITED number of items on the ground before deletion Fixing the RNG and increasing the USEFULNESS of item drops on all maps will help everyone because A) you a new player and progression is easier now so yay B) you a current player you can now farm less and get more items (useful if you have more than one character to gear) Anyone who whines I did this when it was X is an idiot and a whiner as the game is improved for all. Good example is dark souls, ninja flip got nerfed due to being to being NOT FUN to fight, people who required that whined, people who whined got laughed at by the community and the devs (cause the game is improved for all). E.g. the correct response. Those said whiners still play and have accepted the change as an improvement.
  15. People will argue over this forever, but the game is neither primarily a single player game or primarily a multiplayer game. It is equally both. So what Torchlight does, is it doesn't give a darn if people cheat or not? Can't beat em, join em? That's a game I'm not going to play then... I highly doubt they "gave" this to you, It's more likely that they simply didn't care and didn't do anything about cheaters when they could have. I've never understood the fun in this- What point is there in playing the game at all if you've unlocked everything and have all powers and can just breeze through the game? Cheating scares off new players just as much if not more than bugs and glitches. You don't have to cheat, you can play the game how the devs made it and enjoy it, its really fun, I watched some beta vids saying they made it harder than the first game cause that was easy, so chose normal and found it a little to easy and should of been hard and its FUN to play. Now if I wanted to I could download mods or cheat to change the game in ways so i can have a DIFFERENT form of FUN or Improve the game. Example I have loads of good items the storage the games company gave me is so limited, Bam hay presto more storage from a mod. [QUOTE]People also need to remember that mods and cheating are not the same thing. Mods are custom content and features created by players. Cheating is breaking the rules, usually for the purpose of ruining the fun of others or trivializing the game yourself because you can't handle a challenge.[/QUOTE] Wrong modding is adding or changing to the current content the game uses to inject OPTIONAL FUN into a game hacking/cheating is forcing the game to run in a specific way (and can be FUN FOR SOME PEOPLE) Cheating isn't breaking the rules if there are no rules and is talked later next comment [QUOTE]Yes, if you don't want to play with cheaters, you could kick them out of your game, but if cheating has no consequences, there would be too many cheaters and it would be hard for legitimate players to find other legitimate players to play with.[/QUOTE] Wrong there are many games in torchlight 2 that don't involve cheats or mods your wrong because its structured correctly [QUOTE]In games with economies, it ruins the economy [/QUOTE] Wrong it ruins them only if the games rng is grindy and progression is poorly structured or has real life money involved. T2s rng rewards players of all levels with good gear, trading is OPTIONAL and NOT REQUIRED because of this so therefore is unhurt. Also there is no chance of bans so trading hacked items to get people banned isn't a thing. [QUOTE]in games with multiplayer, it ruins the fun for the players trying to enjoy the game within its rules.[/QUOTE] No it doesn't their FUN is based on their attitude, T2 is extremely fun for people who play it even with the OPTION to hack and mod the game to EASY MODE. Seriously you are being to butt hurt on what other players are doing in their game and not enjoying your game YOUR WAY. [QUOTE]It ruins the game for YOURSELF [/QUOTE] Wrong, if your Fun is to to cheat or mod then that's FUN FOR YOU, if your FUN is to not HACK or MOD, that's fun for YOU. So long as the condition is your not hacking other peoples games/spreading virus AND other players have an OPTION TO NOT PLAY WITH YOU all is cool [QUOTE]If your first instinct in a game is to cheat, that tells me either 1) you're a habitual cheater or 2) it's not the right kind of game for you. [/QUOTE] firstly labelling people is childish and dumb. secondly im not a cheater, I have fun my way and i don't care how other people have fun their way (e.g. hacks/mods) I will however use mods that improve the game as I see fit. [QUOTE]I guarantee you that if everyone could easily cheat and there were no rules against it, the game would have no economy and trading would not bring the enjoyment that it does to many people, and the average number of hours played would be a lot lower because everyone would conquer everything in the game in a very short time and then move on to another game.[/QUOTE] Wrong torchlight 2 is going strong it has everything you said would cause it to die out and your wrong its still played a lot by different people playing THEIR WAY. Your understanding of good games design is extremely lacking and its a general disease gamers have that allow games companies to made bad games and still profit doing so COUGH Diablo 3 COUGH @ VVV [QUOTE]Secondly, selling equipment and gears for real money is prohibited. May I know the reason why this is the case?[/QUOTE] You don't own any of the items or content in DD trendy does, you have a licence to use said things. This licence does not great you the permission of making money off their work.
