    Added two more notes:

    Drop Rates adjusted for Free Play to focus moderately more loot drops from Special Enemies and Victory Chests

    Drop Rates adjusted for End Game to mostly drop loot from Special Enemies and Victory Chests


    Can you add me to the steam group iamisom :)

    It's always awesome when Devs reply! Looking forward to those fixes :)

    Atm I've managed to get a 50 but as I nearly only play solo (at max lvl) it has been kinda hard to make the jump from End Game Free Play Normal - Liferoot Forest - into End Game FP Hard early maps. Either I'm playing very poorly, or the difficulty is a bit too hard for the gear we are suppose to have. I cry nearly every mapa and wish I had the other heroes at lvl 50 to better complement my tower setups, but as the xp gain curve is still so low, I don't feel like lvling until the issue is fixed.

    And you just gave me hope that by the end of the week most of the issues that make not want to play DDII all day will be gone.

    Keep up the good work!

    Couldn't of said it better! Teammates make all the difference but solo play should also be an option, the gear/xp scaling is an issue at that point. Hopefully a fix is put out in the near future.

    Um, how did you guys manage to break Nightmare Mode?

    My friends and I are wearing ILVL 600 gear, and can barely hurt nightmare 1 mobs (250 ILVL)... our damage got stealth nerfed by 500% (we do 20% of what we used to do) ... whats going on with Trendy? 

    It's not Alpha! It's Pre-Alpha :D

    There have been multiple times I have gotten a mythical or legendary item with better stats than the green item I'm wearing but lower iPWR. What's up with that?

    Let's say you obtain a legendary at level 3, it's stats will be inflated above greens that level. Let's say you get a green at level 6 with better stats, the item power will be higher. It's hard to explain.

    My biggest problem with the update is that there are dozens of stats and effects that items can get in the game, but only one of them is even worth using for builders - defense power.  Defense crit chance / crit damage seem extremely underwhelming in comparison to defense power, but at least they're something.  Item powers that increase specific tower stats like Pyromania are useful as well, but the odds of getting a tower-specific item power for your class on an item that also has defense power is extremely low.

    Meanwhile, every single item seems to roll some garbage stats like hero crit damage, magic damage resistance, defense interaction range, etc.  DD1/DDE had a good balance in stats between DPS characters and builders, but DD2's itemization seems to be mostly favored towards tanky DPS heroes.  

    Why are tower range / attack rate nearly non-existent?  Why even include crit chance and crit damage in the game if the values are so low?  What on earth is the purpose for building a tanky fighter DPS character when you can just have a Huntress safely snipe from afar?

    Because there is such a low chance that each item will be useful, a player could find himself holding on to the one +28 defense power chestpiece he found at level 19 for the next twenty levels.  Players are forced to handicap themselves with terrible high-ilvl white items just so they can run later maps.  Progress is extremely slow, especially compared to the other two games in the series.  It isn't fun so much as tedious and repetitive.

    I am having issues on Windows 10 as well, I am an insider for the builds. I have not had an issue till today. My mouse was recently unable to click on anything within windows until I restarted explorer.exe. Later I restarted my computer to find that my startup items disappeared and I couldn't open up settings from the start menu. I ran a System File Checker which found no issues. 


    DD2 does not launch on my computer, I am trying to fix other outlying issues and will update this comment after performing a hard restart.

    It appears conducting a shutdown fixed the issue whereas the restart did not. Startup apps are populating as well as full functionality of the start menu.

    I like the fact, that you are handing out cosmetics for streamers to give to their viewers. It worked great in other games and a lot of streamers gave the items out to the community with a really fair chance to get one as a normal follwer.

    There might be a specific reason, that only one streamer got this unique item.But the fact that he gives them out guaranteed to new subscribers ( which is practically selling them) feels kinda wierd, especially when he is mentioned in the patchnotes as an affiliate.

    I agree completely

    I have recently discovered the issue lies within my mouse or mousepad (laptop). I am unable to click on somethings but keyboard shortcuts (ie. arrow keys+enter) work perfectly on opening applications and navigating my computer. Possible mouse drivers conflicting on 10.
