What do you think Jon will change in July? (in General)

Chocolate Thunder June 22 2005 10:11 AM EDT

My guesses?

1 - Armor Allowance on the NW/PR link-up (maybe other small tweaks)
2 - ToBF boost...
3 - Another small X-bow buff
4 - DM blockin' hat (likely not... but I can hope.)
5 - I think another ToE change may occur.. likely to help multi minion teams.

What I don't think you'll see.....

1 - Removal of the NW/PR link.
2 - Direct nerfing of DM or FF/FB
3 - Removal of the NUB

/me thinks he just made the most obvious post in history.

LumpBot June 22 2005 10:16 AM EDT

I think Jon will make a new sound sensitive system for bot checks that involves clapping, stomping, whistles, and snapping your fingers. Well, I can hope as least.

Nameless evil June 22 2005 10:26 AM EDT

I don't think NW/PR link will be removed. NW/PR link is still a fresh change, do you think Jon will change it again or remove it in a quite short time? If yes, that means that NW/PR change is a kind of experiment.

Removal of NUM? Probably some modification of NUM will make it more acceptable.

ToBF boost? Could be nice, but not so many players interested in it.

/me ready to upset after put ToBF in auction.

QBJohnnywas June 22 2005 10:32 AM EDT

That power shield category is looking pretty empty.....

{CB3}-HR22 June 22 2005 11:03 AM EDT

If he does change the NW/PR linkage then there will be alot of mad people as of happy. Most people ended up selling most of there high NW items and may want them back if the change occurs. I dont see any point in the NW / PR change but its there for a reason, so it will proably stay.

Aco June 22 2005 11:04 AM EDT

maybe Jon should make an ranged weapon with hp drain?

ablative shield familair :) percentage to miss on spells (like magic has 100% to hit, even if you would jump away with your 1000000000000000000 dexterity :S)

LumpBot June 22 2005 11:13 AM EDT

Ranged weapon with HP drain? Sounds like an Elven Long Bow to me. When I hit people with it, their Hp drains a ton. =P

Chocolate Thunder June 22 2005 11:13 AM EDT


I didn't say the link would be removed... read my post again.

QBSefton [Black Cheetah Bazaar] June 22 2005 11:16 AM EDT

What you should have said is it SHOULD be removed Chocolate, but that is another discussion. I think to further along the idea Aco put forth, how about a ranged weapon in the ex/ax bow vein that targets the highest HP having minions.

WeaponX June 22 2005 11:20 AM EDT

Removal of PS category. there is no need you cant put an MgS on a ToE mage and a BoM on a ToA tank wont have that large an impact since they only add to base ST

Note the current PS would become regular shields

Arorrr June 22 2005 3:19 PM EDT

A MgS on ToE will make a very strong defensive combo as much as a ToI on a ToE in offensive.

*shuddering of the thought*

Nixon Jibfest June 22 2005 3:26 PM EDT

Would be neat if Jon introduced item(s) that would help make a complete set of armor, as discussed in some previous thread. Full elven gear would be nice to start off with.

moser June 22 2005 3:32 PM EDT

Full elven gear, that's just what we need for the weak ELB-archers.

Tank, wall, mage, enchanter sets would be nice as decoration though if you can spare the PR.

BooDiggens June 22 2005 4:23 PM EDT

Me roots for a X-Bow buff! Either make the non-stat altering X-Bows easier to upgrade, or introduce a new x-bow. (something I made a post about a while back)

And for that matter why not a sling buff too, and really shake things up. Give people a reason to use explosive shots.

Undertow June 22 2005 4:50 PM EDT

I don't think he gonna do a darn thing to the NUB or NW/PR. And when he doesn't, I'm gonna stand up on a soap box and look down on you people laughing who spent serious time out of your lives complaining!

Nameless evil June 22 2005 6:30 PM EDT

Uhmm... I mis-spelled NUB. ;) What a newb I am.

Mistress Reyna June 22 2005 6:49 PM EDT

removal of the ELB, more Power Shields, and making me an admin :)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] June 22 2005 6:56 PM EDT

I will go out on a limb here and say....diapers! In July Jon will change many, many diapers.

House June 22 2005 8:27 PM EDT

Babies diapers is the only absolute change for July

BrandonLP June 22 2005 8:33 PM EDT

/me chuckles at all the people thinking a TOE mage with an MgS would be deadly.

Boy, I bet that Fireball packs a mean punch when it's negated! ;)

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] June 23 2005 6:03 AM EDT

Undertow, Jon already made one change to the NUB, so there.

sssimmo June 23 2005 6:10 AM EDT

wasn't that change just a bug that was fixed???

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] June 23 2005 6:14 AM EDT

You can call it a bug if you like, but it was pointed out on May 16th...

{CB3}-HR22 June 27 2005 3:06 PM EDT

Something i have noticed, is that in auctions if you click past <insert a tattoo name here> then it has serveral kinds of tats (due to people using the TA to change them) and not just thaqt one type, this can cause confusing, and im guessing it will be fixed.

Todd June 27 2005 3:10 PM EDT

As long as there are changes to screw Ranger and Sefton, then all will be as it should be, right?

QBsutekh137 June 27 2005 4:43 PM EDT

Not until you get up there, Todd. Jonathan only hates you.


RAMPAGE June 27 2005 6:53 PM EDT

Everyone from CB1 knows that any changes will be made to give Todd an unfair advantage. =)

Undertow June 27 2005 7:53 PM EDT

I think the changes will revolve around people getting banned who open a thread for something that is already getting complained about it another thread.

By the aura granted me through my sacrificial endevers my flesh will NOT burn. Try as you may you will only find yourself on the wrong end of my wrath when your failed attempt becomes nothing but bad humor.


Todd June 27 2005 10:12 PM EDT

Chet, Jonathan hated Spid, not Todd and Spydah.

QBsutekh137 June 27 2005 11:29 PM EDT

Whatever helps you sleep at night, Todd. *wink*

sssimmo June 27 2005 11:41 PM EDT

Undertow, just change your name to pyromaniac next time.

DAWG June 28 2005 5:02 AM EDT

I think that DM will either get weakened or like CT said some kind of blocking hat for DM or blocking gloves or a shield specified for enchanters only would be greatÂ…
FB will get weakened a little the FB DM teams are really showing everybody up or
another small blocking armor for FB that isn't as strong as the old CoBF or doesn't have the mele damage effect as the old CoBF and isn't a tat...

wow that is jumbled but I think some of you get my point (bastie please no corrections on the grammar I am terrible)

Quark June 28 2005 11:15 AM EDT

Make an anti-DM corn that has -25% to enchantments. You sacrifice 1/4 of your enchanter's power to guarantee they will always be able to cast. It would be a worthwhile tradeoff for some.
