  1. I took a long hiatus from DD2 and am back. Being that I took a long break, I figured I'd start over because there is a lot of stuff that wasn't complete that is now complete and new mechanics that I'm not familiar with. That being said, I would love the ability to play with other players that are my level or close to it. In DD1 you had the option to level restrict your room in public games. Why isn't this an option in DD2? I want to play this game with other people. I do NOT want to be carried and powerleveled by some random level 50 joining my game and one-shotting everything that spawns. If I want that then I'll actively seek out that environment or better yet, just use the level 50's that I already have with legendary gear and carry myself.
  2. Trendy is never going to do this. It gets brought up every week on the devstream and every week they shoot it down. They're trying to stay away from the P2W model.
  3. Maybe not legendaries in particular, but I went from getting 1-2 frostfire staff drops on average every few runs yesterday to not having seen 1 at all today. I've been at it for an unmentionable amount of time already today. RNJesus hates me today.
  4. I know this is off topic but this makes my brain hurt. That's a minimum of 96 hours a week assuming you only worked 6 days a week. If we assumed that had you not been on salary, you'd be getting overtime for 56 of those hours, i'm not sure what overtime used to be, which equates to roughly 84 regular time hours for a grand total of 124 regular time hours paid every week. At $425 a week, you were making roughly $3.43/hour if you weren't salaried. How old are you exactly because you don't seem to act the age you imply you are by earning this sort of income at some point in your life? Moving on because my brain is still boggled. Why wouldn't you want to help report bugs even if they do or do not have a paid test team and squash them so that other, including yourself, don't have to experience them again and they can get fixed sooner? I report on average 2 things a day at the innkeeper with screenshots when I can so that stuff will get fixed sooner hopefully. Not to mention, e-mail support isn't the same thing as submitting a bug report. They might pass along the ticket possibly but there is no guarantee of that. Posting on the forums as well is definitely not a good way to make sure the QA team is seeing bugs as well because there is a lot of content to sift through on these forums.
  5. You get an additional 35% experience boost for every level 50 that you have in your hero deck plus the 20% for each medium exp sphere that you have equipped. You can get up to 145% exp bonus.
  6. You should have a campaign quest line. Once you finish betsy campaign it unlocks freeplay and of course onslaught and maybe incursion, but I don't recall. Anyways, at this point, you are bound to these playset and can't go into any end-game related content or "boards" as you called them until you have achieved level 50 on at least one hero. You're unfortunately stuck leveling in the freeplay maps which of course limits you on gear, however you do get a lot more experience than you would if you tried to level playing end-game content.
  7. Yes, but the point is that because there're so many stats than can be found on a frostfire staff, the odds of me actually finding one with defense power is pretty low. Fair enough. I'm having a hard time of it finding one with defense power as well.
  8. It's still possible to cap the reset time on towers/traps/auras without a maxed % staff, especially if you have a high enough defense power. At least this is my understanding of it because all the towers cap at a certain recharge/fire rate I believe. That being said, if you get a staff with defense power on it but a lower %, it might look like you're losing/downgrading but in actuality you are likely improving because the nm4 incursion staffs have around 550+ defense power. Of course you just have to do a little simple math to figure out whether or not you're losing or gaining depending on your defense power before and after the change.
  9. It's ok to be jealous. I'll be dancing around the map like Kevin Bacon doing hero dps while my super sturdy barricades shoot freeze rays that'll buff everything it touches. Disclaimer: No I'm not serious except for the part about Kevin Bacon maybe. Probably not.
  10. I could be wrong but I don't think there will be wipes after "open alpha" is what they're calling it. I believe that is what I heard on the devstream yesterday. Of course, who knows when open alpha will be but Alpha starts in September unless they push it back for some reason. That aside, I'm totally playing under the assumption that there will be at least one more wipe. If it's a partial wipe or complete wipe of all player data, who knows.
  11. So I just reported this over in the bugs thread and thought maybe someone else would get a chuckle or two out of this. I just got done with a round of nm4 liferoot incursion and decided to go back to the private tavern to do a couple things. When I was finished and went back over to the war table, this is what my map looked like. Here is a link to the bug thread I made for it if anyone wants to chime in on it there or has experience anything similar.
  12. So I just got finished playing nm4 liferoot incursion and went back to the private tavern for a moment to do a few things. When I had finished up everything, this happened. The difficulty bar was gone from every play mode and every map was "A VERY BIG MAP NAME". I had a little chuckle before I thought i'd mossy on over here and report this. Oh, also. When I tried to return to the social tavern, it put me into the black loading screen of death by boredom. Probably related to the server memory leak I suppose. Cheers! 
  13. Explain to me how waiting 3 days (only starting to post about 48 hours after it happened..) and attempting all supposed 'fixes', is not being patient? At this point we'll wait another 2 days because they historically dont do anything on the weekends. Again, explain to me what level of patience would be required to actually log in to the game? I've left the black swirly screen running for hours at a time, so please, again, explain to me this 5 minutes thing? Maybe you'll take a second to realize the problem isn't impacting everyone in the same way. So you (and others) take the fluke success that works for you folks, and expect it to be a replicated fix for everyone else. That just adds to the irritation of us who have had no fixes work for and it's going to likely be at least 5 days before we play.. and potentially 6 since I doubt they do anything until Tuesday. I'm optimistic of Monday but not realistic. I realize you're a bit angry because you can't play the game, however that is not a reason to verbally lash out at someone for offering their opinion and suggestions on what has worked for them. Now, if you want to take a moment to actually reread my post, because I read yours, and you clearly missed what I said. Don't just sit at the black screen of boredom waiting for your life to pass you by because that's not going to work. You're clearly being logged into a server that is experiencing the memory leak problem and staying there isn't going to help anything. Close your game out entirely so that it's not running and wait 5 minutes before trying again. Don't waste your time sitting at the black screen with the pre-alpha watermark and the loading screen swirly for any longer than it would normally take for you to load into the social tavern. I've had to try several times before I finally was able to not get stuck at the black swirly of boredom. If that doesn't work, you can read my other post or I'll just reiterate it here. Hopefully you have people on your steam friend's list that play DD2, if not then feel free to add me in the hopes that this will work. If you do have friends who play DD2 then great. Before you press the play button to take you into the social tavern, hopefully, or the black loading screen of boredom, try joining their DD2 match if they are in a game already and it's not full. This has also worked for me in the past. I was able to join a friend's game that wasn't full and from there on had no issue getting in and out of the many "rooms" of DD2 to play. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt since your post came out less than a minute after my last one admitting I was wrong for assuming what worked for me should work for everyone else. So I admit that I was wrong to tell everyone they need patience, however patience is what has worked for me. Edit: I have to start the process over again because I was taking time to type up this post. Curse you Trendy and your kick timer from private games.
  14. It certainly is, just as it is yours to tell people that the only reason they aren't playing is because they aren't patient. You got me there. What works for me might not work for someone else. Patience worked for me. I was able to finally get into the game though, after about ~15 minutes, while having this problem again today after trying a few a times with period of waiting between each attempt. Good luck to you.
  15. If restarting the game 5, 10, 20 times was working for us, we would be playing right now. Patience is not the issue. Like I said. I've had this happen to me the past couple days and this solution has worked for me. I've spent more than 10 minutes waiting to finally get into a server somehow. Making generalizations that it doesn't work for us is wrong and should be steered clear of. It clearly works for some. That being said, another solution to the problem is if you have friends or anyone on your friend's list playing DD2, join their game directly from the menu before even pressing the play button to go to the social tavern. I realize this wont work for everyone since they might not know someone who plays DD2, however I'm just trying to offer my two cents and let me people know what has worked for me. If you don't want to contribute in some constructive way and would rather tell me how I'm wrong for something that has worked for me then that is you prerogative.
