  1. You spawn and die instant if there is fire. So yeah, great one, not. Also I just die in the middle of the map with no mob around and lose points. This event is the worst dlc in gaming history. In comparison Duke Nukem Forever just starts to look playable.
  2. New upper tier content, wow. It's like they dont listen at all. People complaining about gear getting too great too fast, lets throw some more in. Why cant they just focus on problems that need to be fixed instead of creating a new problem.

    It's true you dont have to "asia grind" survival. But tell me, how am I supposed to get better gear to get through high tier content, if I dont do survival. It's kinda like, you have to be this tall to enter. If I'm not that tall, thats it for me period. I dont have time for survival.
  3. I played my fair part of DD. I was in the forums nearly every day. But they didnt address the main issue, the survival. So, this game is just too boring for me. DD has become an asia grinder. You spend your days farming in redundant modes which require yourself being in the game pretty long in one sitting to get good loot. Well, even asia grinder arent that boring. I'm just disappointed that Trendy cant see the real issues but is tweaking stuff which is already alright.
  4. Are the people at Trendy dealing with us in any other way? They think we are their labrats, monkeys they can train. I'm calling it like it is. People arent angered because of the nerfs they are angered about the communication from the devs. Jeremy Stieglitz promised us right after their lack of information on the premium content regarding the gender swap that they would from there on out telling us upfront what they would charge and patch. But he couldnt held his promise and that isn't just sad, it's insulting. But they cant even comment on that. The new "Communitymanager"(I didnt see an election for that) updated only after nerfs being mentioned. He didnt even compared them to the real patch notes. We had to find the next nerf so he could write it down. That's dishonest and lazy.
  5. Let me put the nerfs being partly game breaking to the side. The lack of information in the official forum is a slap to all gamers. You PROMISED us you would give us more information. Yet you dont do jack. We have to figure out the nerfs by ourselves. Why do you even have a community manager, he is doing nothing at all. A monkey without balls could do his job. After some time he climbed from his high horse to update the patch notes in an incomplete way. Was it fun, Hitmonchan, screw you!
  6. The new patch is out and there are just so many things that really make me ask you:
    Are there really any Beta Testers?
    When you say yes, do you listen to them or are they just standing in a corner in your office doing jack?
    The Barbarian is so messed up and no one on your team noticed it before?
    I tried the Assault Pack and figured you cant do it alone. I put down the time you give us to complete it on insane, started on easy and I barely could do it on insane time, although I basically just dashed through it one-hitting everything. Come on this gotta been noticed by you.
  7. I think some of you didnt understand my post on saved level so here it is simple :
    1. You only get to keep your loot if you make it to the next wave
    2. You can only load the level you are stuck on
    3. Put a timer on the level so it has to be played before it expires 5-7 days
    This would prevent loot whoring / cheating and would still be a challenge progression because everyone will hit a level they cant pass due to gear or teamates so why not be able to practice it without having to play 10 hrs again?


    That just defeats the whole purpose of survival and the necessity of a save button. You have to finish survival with your current gear, there shouldnt be an option to improve your character and come back later. Also there shouldnt be a point of return if you fail.

  8. * Made Nightmare Mode drop better loot even at the lower waves (Wave 1 Deeper Well Nightmare is now pretty much equivalent to Wave 14 Insane Glitter etc), & Nightmare Campaign generally drop better loot
    * Made Nightmare Survival & Mix High-Waves Drop Loot on Par with Nightmare UMF
    * Made Nightmare Survival & Mix have more Ogres depending on the Wave number


    It doesnt say NM Survival MM drops better loot than NM Survival w/o MM.
  9. um considering you dont work for valve or trendy you actually have no eta as it has not been confirmed that valve even has said patch/dlc yet

    I'm not working for either of them that's right, but taking in consideration that the devs said it would be on 31st of January and recent Steam update history it's going to be like I wrote. If the release is pushed onto another date, you will still get the patch in the afternoon of GMT-8. If you just take this out of the thread maybe ppl stop saying "It's release day where I live(i.e. GMT+5)".
  10. There are various points which should be taken care of before implementing a save button.

    1. You should only be able to save between waves.
    2. Once you die your savegame is forever lost.
    3. After saving you have to quit, there is no playing something else or getting better gear. If you start the game again you have to continue at that point.
  11. The way I see a save working is that you can only save at the start of each new level and the kicker is you can only keep the loot if you clear to the next level , that way people cant farm lv 25 over and over . So say you played level 20 and just saved , all the loot on level 20 - 21 you can pick up as usual BUT if you dont win to level 21 all that loot you picked up doesnt stay in your inventory because you reload to how you were at the start of level 20 when , no farming abuse that way .

    Stop right there. There are fundamental logic fails. In your suggestion your save will take you back to the point you saved and all loot so far is lost. So how can you become stronger? You cant! You cant even play anything else. If you decide to save a game and quit you have to play your savegame next. You arent allowed to play anything else, because you only have this one savegame not many more.
  12. Just to be clear to all of you. It is said the patch will come on the 31st of January. It will be released using Steam. At Valve headquarters it is 09:46 am. Valve's own games are patched on around 12:00. Other games' patches are released after that. Just plan with 6-8 hours from now.
  13. The only payshop, which doesnt kill the game, is one for customization. I think there are plenty of people out there who would buy skins and other visual stuff in a heartbeat. The best example is the TF2 and the LoL Shop. People spend thousands of dollars for absolutely useless skins and hats.
  14. I dont like it either. I'm not saying trendy should offer items - I'm saying they still shouldn't - but that they can offer mana instead. Obviously it wouldn't be as cheap as the hackers can offer, but it would be a legit way for people who wanted to buy it. The rest of the people can just put more time into grinding the mana. It wouldn't give payers a leg up on anything but time.

    If you put it that way, let me think, even less desirable. If the USD-Price for Mana from Trendy is below the hacker's price there might be a chance to throw them out of business. If I chose to invest money to buy mana, I would pick the best deal. If there is someone giving me 1 Mio. Mana for 1$ and Trendy gives you 100k for 1$ where do you think ppl will buy?
  15. My suggestions for the savegames.
    First of all only the host is able to save, but he has to quit afterwards. It's save&quit not save&continue, otherwise ppl will just abuse the function. Once you die your savegame is lost just like in Dungeons of Dredmor, main reason is abuse again. That are the main concerns I have.
  16. If trendy bans all the hackers accounts...they will just buy more of them...that does not make Trendy suffer


    Isnt that an extra incentive for Trendy? Ban those hackers and even make more money out of it...

    Well, I'm sure it has already been stated before... but trendy could help alleviate this problem by offering a cash to in-game currency program or something of the sort. If people are desperate enough to spend real money on in-game currency, offer them a legit way to do it other than grinding it out for several hours.


    Free to play, pay to win, great one, I like it...NOT.
  17. if you bring attention to the problem by doing it, then it hurts the cause


    We made threads, wrote mails, made more threads. We reasoned, we whined, we threatened. If no one listens this is the last resort. In Germany we have an idiom for that: Wer nicht hen will, muss flen.(=Who doesnt listen, has to suffer.)

  18. The patch has already been submitted to Steam, so it's in Valve's hands, not Trendy's.


    That being said now it just comes down to importance. If a big game company like ubisoft puts a patch out there it will be queued before this patch. So if there arent any big patches for AAA-games for monday it should hit pretty soon. Otherwise it takes some time.
