Re: Nerfed Buttons

About 90% sure there is still NB in game, or something similar to it. The rate at which key abilities get interrupted within 0.1 second of me casting them is too high for it to be coincidence.

Re: The alienation of solo/pug/casual players and it's unintended side-effects

Afaik TTK only feels long in engagements of equally strong opponents, where all come down to a lucky CC chain or small mistake to secure a kill - granted that not one setup is inherently weaker from the get go. Yes, what causes the high TTK is the safety net produced by the tanks and healers. If th...

Re: The alienation of solo/pug/casual players and it's unintended side-effects

This part about time to kill resonated with me a lot. However I don't see it exactly as a problem that turns off new/casual players. In fact it may turn off more invested players more since they are the ones participating in ranked and city mostly. And these are the environments where TTK can be ve...

Re: Disable .Surrender In Weekend ToW SCs Like This Week's

The OP has a point. I don't know if disabling the surrender option is the way go to, but it seems this weekend SC had a lot of awkward tasks that didn't really make sense in the context of how the SC is played. For example, you really don't want the entire team to stand on the flag as it's being cap...

Re: The alienation of solo/pug/casual players and it's unintended side-effects

Personally, I think the healer-archetype is what needs to be looked at in order to find solutions for the high TTK. It makes no sense to me that the single-most impactful archetype gets the highest range of all classes and high natural survivability (in part due to willpower being an inferior stat),...

Ad hominem. At least learn your fallacies

No. You're misrepresenting my position, which is a strawman.

What are you trying to achieve with this behavior?

But what do I expect from you and OP, one of you think sorc burst and DPS is the worst I the game, the other one thinks BG is the worst tank in the game.

Eesh... You're accusing people of strawmanning so what is this supposed to be then? :roll:

Re: The alienation of solo/pug/casual players and it's unintended side-effects

Tell me one MMO that got ruined by casuals in the history of MMO's. And after you tell me this, tell me what MMO survived without casuals. You know those scenarios you play on the alts you level up? They are sponsored by casuals. Those 6 people on each faction that queue after coming home from work...

The alienation of solo/pug/casual players and it's unintended side-effects

Hello all, The devs of Return of Reckoning have never made it a secret that they wish to disincentivise solo and casual playerstyles. Over the course of a year or so or more, I have seen this mindset negatively impact the game both by its direct consequences and unintended side-effects. It is specif...

Re: Full regen build ruining the game

Woah what a thread i have missed, damn! Not gonna read everything, just wanna drop my point here. The problem isn't the regen itself (frankly its quite weak), the problem is how powerful the defence stacking is, and how easily some classes can do it without sacrificing in other aspects like damage....
