Chaos Rift Groups - the first easy moders?

    The only real volume of moaning I've seen on these forums has been directed at BWs and Sorcs. WEs maybe, to a much lesser extent. But I've never actually gone into a scenario and seen anyone particularly put out by the presence of these people. I'm sure there have been exceptions - like all BW groups or such, but it doesn't seem common enough to be a problem.

    The same cannot be said for Chaos Rift groups on 8 Peaks. These are now spoiling every 3rd or 4th scen for me. It's not cheating, it's not exactly exploiting, it probably takes a small amount of organisation to get the right group set up, but it's definitely game-breaking.

    I'd like to say this could be handled without a nerf. Nerfs are so harsh. But the only way it can work without Chaos Rift (and the Order counterpart) being nerfed is for people to not set their groups up for easy mode wins. If not, the only way to stop people using this to ruin the game is to nerf CR (prolly a drastic range nerf would work).

    Why some people always need to go into a fight with a stacked deck, I do not understand. If you don't like proper competition, go shoot some fish in a barrel or something, and stop ruining WAR for others.

    You might think there's something clever about scripting an IWIN setup, but then throwing their own shite probably seems clever to monkeys.

    Well, not any other things magus can do i think, or not much more with the spells they got atm tbh, its still annoying but... anyways its getting "fixed" soon, and hope they get other tools to make the class playable.

    Smile, its being nerfed. And btw, I agree that the suck-in abilities are too strong.

    ...and also agree, until next patch there's very little else a Magus can bring to the party. Happily they are not nerfing my preferred weapon of choice.

    Just stay out of T4 RvR until it gets fixed, or signal your dislike by canceling the sub until it gets fixed.
    Unfortunately - we don't know how long until 1.0.5 fixes this problem.

    1.0.5 goes live next thursday in US (fri in Europe) and 1.1 will follow 2 weeks later bringing the KoTBS and whatever destruction get, which will be formerly known as 1.1

    Well, since I am not willing or able to put the sheer amount of time, effort and "being a cock"ness into a set group when I encounter one I go the other way :p

    Sorry, didn't realise it had been commented on before. I did look around a bit but must have been further back.

    Anyhoo, I notice the 1.0.5. patch has some changes to CR and hopefully that will fix it. If not, at least it shows Mythic's intention to prevent this social-dwainism or whatever the pondlife thinks it is.

    Interesting thing about social Darwinism is that it is social. If you start behaving in a way the rest of society finds unacceptable (of which being called a cock by everyone you meet is perhaps symptomatic), you will not prosper. Good luck with your next set group though. I expect you'll have fun rerolling everytime Mythic fixes the game to stop easy moding.

    why do people get infrigtions for calling a showel for a showel, or in this case a cock for a cock?
