    In all that text, I failed to see if he says when that patch will be released. I know he says that the Black Guard and Knight of the Blazing Sun will be released in december, but that can't possibly mean that 1.1 will come in december too? Because in that case, he is too early with his news imo.

    And so the legend building continues.

    Just a day or two before the initial month runs out we have a new nice marketing post.

    Thanks for the link, we shall see if the promised changes will be delivered.

    Thats the first thing I thought, but to be honest it's not really underhand, it's the sort of thing that happens in all industries. As long as what is promised is delivered there isn't really a problem, they sound like they are trying to push warhammer in the right direction rather than just nerfing everything ppl complain about on VN. Looking forward to Empire getting their tank, perhaps people will stop crying about not having enough tanks.

    Regarding the possibility to move chars between servers, why hasn't this been done for DAOC?

    Different database system?
    Not worth the investment?
    lack of development resources on this game now?

    A combo of all 3?

    Calaen I am a massive cock who isn't firing atm!

    Some nice things to look forward to.

    Minor reasons, one man, a week and it's done.

    Maybe they wanted to move the subscription base of DAOC to Warhammer?

    As Manisch has pointed out, they need to release all this information before the first free month expires to give people hope and to continue subscribing.

    Mythic does have a large development team, I'd guess they could do a 1.1 for December. Most of the work on the two new classes was done before release, they're probably just going to update and fix it. Whilst the upcoming features sound big, there aren't that many of them.

    I'm looking forward to the updates anyway.

    Still no Choppa :(
     
  13. Flimgoblin

    Flimgoblin It's my birthday today!

    I imagine kotbs and blackguard were probably suffering more from lack of art and bugfixing than playability issues...

    choppa/hammerer needed a redesign.

    At least this should please some of my guildies! Although I think they'd like the choppa//hammerer too.

    I should think that all these changes will be implemented for around Christmas time, they can do big news announcements and stuff to encourage folks to buy it each other for christmas!

    Belsameth Tainted

    Don't use your logic on me. Just gimme a Choppa!

    But yeah, that's possible. I am sure they're coming at some point... Just can't wait.
    Their armour looks better then the other Greenskins combined :)

    Interesting stuff!
    And its about time they implement item linking ;)

    I dont like how it says no abilities will be removed. Suggest pullin is here to stay which sucks imo

    Maybe we'll all get anti-knockback abilities :)

    "Almost every career is going to see some changes and love coming their way and there are very, very few changes that will be seen as reductions to a career’s abilities."

    Okay who thinks the class that will have abilities reduced will be ..... THE BRIGHT WIZARD!!!!

    On another note I hope they make Corp resist something to reduce the chance to be knockdown/knockback/disabled etc etc etc

    They go the "no nerfs, only boosts"-route which is sham, the moment something gets boosted the other stuff is auto-nerfed.

    2 ≠ 1

    2 = 1 + 1

    2 - 1 = 1

    If an ability is strong and its counter ability too weak you can either boost the weak ability or weaken the strong ability. In the context of the two abilities only it will have the same effect, e.g. they could either reduce the overall damage in tier 3/4 or improve overall healing (this would include HP regen too to make a difference for classes that can't heal) and it would be the same result.

    Boosting instead of "nerfing" seems to be more popular nowdays, it's still sham. Hopefully they'll boost the right parts, e.g. CC needs immunties, healing needs to be improved a bit and something to help to deal with massive AoE damage would be nice too (beside of spreading out :p).

    I'm pretty sure if they could merge Mordred and Andred in a week they could have done something similar for char transfer, I think they just saw clustering as an easier alternative. I believe they probably thought the same with server cloning.

    Shike Can't get enough of FH

    Boosting usually feels better for most and tbh, aslong as they dont murder classes like they did to zerkers in early DAoC, im a happy fella :)

    means around the time blizzard release Wotlk do look for around 20th november...


    :m00:

    Pff, that's just an illusion, you know what minstrel complaints were about. They didn't get nerfed, but just about every other class got boosted. So minstrels got left behind as it were. Not that I ever complained about it, but the minstrel players sure did.
     
  27. aika

    aika Can't get enough of FH

    I really hope they do nerf the bw's so it will stop all whines, and then to look on destro player's faces when they are still gonna get rolled ;>
     
  28. Awarkle

    Awarkle Fledgling Freddie

    what do you mean minstrels didnt get boosted ?

    obviously someone forgot about the wall climb.
     
  29. Iorlas

    Iorlas Fledgling Freddie

    BW's need a nerf simple as that,be even more interesting to see the response once they are brought into line with other class's.
