  1. Hahaha, I see the new forums are no better at stopping this kind of attack than the older forums were. Oh well. Need some captcha.
  2. I'm fine with AFK farming if your build and gear allow you to do so. DD1 does a great job of game mode variety and some extra hard maps for those that want that experience instead. Since DDA is based mostly on DD1, hopefully they hit a nice sweet spot as well. We'll have to wait and see.
  3. DD1 was already on a nice multi month upswing but I'm guessing the DDA announcement was the cause of the big increase in the last 30 days: Month Avg. Players Gain % Gain Peak Players Last 30 Days 324.1 +73.0 +29.09% 947 February 2019 251.1 +11.8 +4.94% 602 January 2019 239.2 +24.9 +11.60% 620 December 2018 214.4 +43.6 +25.50% 540 November 2018 170.8 +20.6 +13.75% 363 October 2018 150.2 -2.9 -1.89% 309
  4. Actually, he might be right. 6 or more does have a nice, stately look to it......
  5. Hahaha, now you're just trying to make me look bad. :) Yeah, I played DD2 again last night and saw it come up first thing and was like, duh. Oh well....
  6. I logged on to DD2 last night (shhhhh, don't tell anyone) and I saw a big plug for the kickstarter. I can't say exactly how to describe where it was (not really a DD2 player) but it was on a screen that I had to click "OK" to before I could play. I agree that it should be added to the DD1 splashscreen.
  7. Yes you can: https://forums.dungeondefenders.com/forums/topic/148645-event-items-with-details/
  8. It is an interesting problem to ponder. How do you make rare items hard to get but not make it so frustrating that no one wants to bother. That seemed to be one of the problems (according to others) with DDE. Top of the line gear was too easy to obtain. I think DD1 came pretty close to getting it just right. It was awesome when I finally got my first Ult++ drop. But other things just don't seem worth the effort. Like farming a good weapon from CD. I just couldn't be bothered. With probabilities, you do get a nice randomness but you can also get a lot of frustration. Someone can farm a map 3 times and end up with an Ult++ where you have farmed it 30 times and only got up to Ult. I wonder about a possibility of having a mechanism so that the game would keep track how many times you've beaten a map without getting a top tier reward. Each time you run the map but don't get a top tier reward, your chance of getting a top tier reward is improved a little bit. And when you do hit the jackpot, your chance goes back to the base value. Then you would at least feel you were making some progress towards a nice item even when you only get crappy rewards on a particular run.
  9. Wow, thanks for all the info. I honestly can't remember why I quit DDE. I think it was just that I still had a lot of stuff to do in DD1 and everyone bailed on DDE because of its issues. I might have to go back and install DDE to refresh my memory about what I liked and didn't like.
  10. I'm being serious. I love DD1 (no shocker there). I do remember DDE coming out and being really excited. I think I sort of enjoyed some of the new stuff like coloring your items with paint or whatever it was. I remember there being some complaints about the networking code. But why exactly was DDE so hated? I honestly can't remember. I do remember liking the few maps that I tried. I obliviously loved the look of the game since it looked just like DD1 (if memory serves me right).
  11. They've confirmed it will be a combination of the two with some new stuff. Elandrian (Colin Fisher) said as much, at least to the newspaper reporter: Full article here: https://www.gainesville.com/news/20190304/trendy-founder-takes-helm-rebrands-company-as-chromatic-games
  12. I never encountered this problem in DD1. You can reorder your heros and there are 8 on a page so I have my 6 builders, 1 upgrader and 1 DPS on the first page. Swapping at the forge only took around 1 second. It sounds like they won't have a forge in DDA so we'll see what they come up with for swapping heroes.
  13. It's an event item that is the top DPS weapon in DD1 by a good margin. You can see pics and a small write up on it in this fine thread by one of the nicest and best DD1 players I have ever met in person: https://forums.dungeondefenders.com/forums/topic/148645-event-items-with-details/
  14. So given the big news about DDA, what happens to DD1? I'm assuming that surprising decision to split the last update up and do a lightning quick beta and then a release was related to all the changes that were just announced at Trendy/Chromatic. Is the CDT team still going forward with the next update? Has Chromatic Games signaled that they will continue supporting the CDT as they develop more DD1 updates?
  15. This article has been mentioned in a couple threads but I think it deserves it's own thread. It is quite an informative write up on what happened and why and what the plans are for DD:A. Here is the link: https://www.gainesville.com/news/20190304/trendy-founder-takes-helm-rebrands-company-as-chromatic-games A few of the highlights are: ... ...
