  1. I think that bringing back the "development road-map" would be very beneficial to sustaining the player-base of DD2. I realize that road-maps are more common for EA games that are still in the early stages but since this game is still evolving then it is still technically being developed. I personally do not have the time to watch all the dev streams and piece together what might happen in the next patch or the one after but would like to know a bit more about what Trendy's focus actually is. Many times in the past I saw a patch coming and thought, "this is when the (insert desired improvement here) hits". Only to be disappointed when the patch hit. A new road-map would keep your players up-to-date on what is in the works and what your current focus is for the near and far future. Transparency with your supporters keeps them in the loop, stops the guessing game and gets them excited for future features that will be implemented. Honestly the only reason I have bothered to stick around for so long was because I enjoyed DD1 so much. Many new players don't care if the game flops because its FTP so w/e if it fails. Just my $0.02 but you would be surprised what something so simple can do. :) Cheers. TLDR: Transparency with your players regarding development will give them something to look forward to and keep them interested in the game.
  2. I think it is a very nice gesture to give Trendy the info as to why you lost interest HSB. Most people just leave games they become bored with without saying a word. I am in a similar situation and agree with many of the points in your first post but have hopes for their future updates. If nobody voiced their opinion, whether it be viewed as positive or negative, developers would be left guessing how to steer their game. Sometimes people forget that I think. :P
  3. I have little faith anything will change with the hard counter mobs but here are my suggestions or ones I have seen posted by others that I would like to see. Vanguards - Shields take x amount of damage and are then destroyed. Acting as a form of armor essentially. After they are destroyed they take damage the same as any other normal mob and do not stop projectiles. Geode - Shield takes x amount of damage and then shuts off. Takes x amount of seconds to turn back on. Similar to the vanguard suggestion but not exactly the same. EMP Orcs - They can stun "any" defense for x amount of seconds but have a cooldown before they can do it again. This doesn't stack and a tower that is stunned becomes immune to emp stuns for twice the timeframe of the cooldown to prevent stun locking. Making the stun work on all towers removes the hard counter aspect but still makes them a viable threat. Assassins - Not what I consider a hard counter but more of an annoyance. Remove the teleporting. I always thought that it would add to the game to have that added pressure of trying to dodge or outrun the assassins. Imagine your towers and/or barricades are falling and you are being pursued by a pack of these things. Contrast that with, " Oh hey there is the assassin smoke on me, better do (insert boring counter here) to deal with them and then I can get back to playing the game. (-.-)
  4. Not a bad idea at all IMO. Honestly, I am willing to go along with any idea that gives back our choices regarding the maps we play lol.
  5. The whole map rotation idea is flawed IMO. Players usually find a way to avoid certain aspects that they dislike of the games that they play . In this case the map rotation "tries" to promote variety but actually limits it. I also think they are trying to stop players from progressing too fast through chaos by choosing maps that Trendy deems the hardest or more difficult of the lot. Well people will just skip those maps lol. If the rotation included the entire map pool it would be closer to what I think Trendy is trying to accomplish but would not wear out their players with mostly the same old maps over and over. Suggestions: Make the entire map pool available to players on all chaos tiersLower the DU limit on "easy maps" (only in chaos trials, not campaign)Balance all maps so none stand out as too easy or too hard If Trendy makes all of the maps "balanced" in regards to difficulty in chaos then their is zero reason to have a rotation. Balance the map DU and unleash the map pool.
  6. My favorite thing about the game is the developers involvement with the community. Some of the changes/improvements I might not agree with but IMO they tend to listen to the input of their community overall. Compare that with Blizzard for example. Good luck getting a "Blue" response on their forums lol. Cheers to Trendy for being active with their players. :)
  7. So we now have unique weapons again via the incursions but we do not have any unique relics. So lets make some up and maybe Trendy will like the idea. I will start the ball rolling :P. Squire: Training Dummy: The TD now releases 4-8 projectiles depending on its rotation speed which cause mobs to be ignited for "x" amount of damage over time. This would tie in nicely with any "oiling effects" :) This is arc focus based. Huntress: Geyser Trap: Geyser trap now causes an ice tornado similar to the apprentice ability. It has an added ice effect which slows mobs for x amount of seconds. Monk: Lightning Aura: The tower no longer is single target. It is now a multi-target defense. It does chain lightning. Disclaimer: This idea was already posted but was too good to not list. :)
  8. That was the exact response I expected. "I was just trolling guys!" No I was not trolling and it was not prank,I just play mind games with you after completing the hardest challenge ingame to demonstrate my E-pen dominance :^) Now bow before me puny human. Have you been told yet today?
  9. That's because Gambit & Deadly Strikes only affect the damage radius. They have no effect on trigger radius. I've brought this up before and someone at Trendy, I don't remember who, said they like it that way and won't change it because they want trap placement more strategic or something. Awesome. That makes total sense because traps are so OP so why make them any stronger? LOL love Trendys logic sometimes :P.
  10. In a nutshell yes. The current loot system needs some tweaking :P.

  12. Now there's a good idea. To bad we can't see iPWR at the moment. Would be nice if they made it visible again.
  13. Can't catch this - The further mobs travel down a lane the faster they get. Missed one or two - Mobs explode and spawn two smaller weaker versions of themselves on death. What's the hurry? - Mobs within a certain radius slow hero movement and attack speed. For the legion! - Bombers no longer damage towers/heroes but instead when triggered explode into other mobs giving them temporary buffs. EX: Increased speed, health, damage. We will get that later - Mobs target towers with a DOT attack that stacks and doesn't stop unless a repair is started or an upgrade completed. Now you see me, now you don't - Enemies fade in and out essentially becoming transparent at times. During the fade out period they cannot be damaged. We're Grounded - Bombers do not explode when killed but land and turn into ground based mobs instead. Tricked you - Mobs that get half way down a lane then teleport to another random lane halfway down that lane also. Two in one - When a boss/mini-boss is at half health it re-spawns as a different boss/mini-boss. Fly like an eagle - All enemies in a lane levitate/fly so they can only be targeted by towers that can hit flyers. (Excluding bosses) Unleash the Beast! - A lane spawns only berzerkers.
