Removed rounded pebbles (in Changelog)


AdminJonathan December 1 2006 5:15 PM EST

Sometimes change months start big. Sometimes they start small. Guess which one this is. :)

Existing RP were transmogrified into Iron Shot.

This means that whenever the store would have generated RP in the past, it will generate IS or Explosive Shot instead (with IS the more probable).

QBRanger December 1 2006 5:17 PM EST

Thanks!

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 1 2006 5:17 PM EST

Wow...a moment of silence please.

QBOddBird December 1 2006 5:17 PM EST

Sweet. Still a good change, even if it isn't a strategy-rocker. =)

Hyrule Castle December 1 2006 10:25 PM EST

next you will all be complaining that iron shots are too weak, and u all will want exp shots or stronger :P

Kong Ming December 1 2006 10:27 PM EST

Argh... My rounded pebble became an iron shot ;) More explosive shots to buy from the store? Nice... :p

Now this is a change that was needed
</sarcasm>

Drama December 2 2006 1:44 AM EST

Explosive shots are already too strong and now they can be bought in store. There's something missing here.:(
And now I'll see you write: "Explosive Shots are not that strong" but yes they are and it should be changed, the based damage and spread is so big that its not even funny.
A tank same mpr does more damage with is SoD and Explosive Shots than my CoC. So why not put some AG and CoI in store maybe?.
Ranger as prove it when Chuck killed him with is upgraded Explosive Shots. he could have tried the same thing with a ELB but he would certainly not killed him like he did.

Here's an example:

Black Knight's explosive shot hit La douceur [74206], Belle-Ange [34306], Bouclier d'amour [29866]
Bouclier d'amour absorbs damage [23517]
Bouclier d'amour absorbs damage [23517]
Black Knight's explosive shot hit La douceur [71881], Belle-Ange [33884], Bouclier d'amour [29321]
Bouclier d'amour absorbs damage [23517]
R.I.P. La douceur

Black Knight's explosive shot hit Bouclier d'amour [62538], Belle-Ange [33025]
Bouclier d'amour absorbs damage [23517]
Black Knight's explosive shot hit Bouclier d'amour [58531], Belle-Ange [30742]
Bouclier d'amour absorbs damage [23517]

Black Knight's explosive shot hit Bouclier d'amour [76212], Belle-Ange [38969]
Black Knight's explosive shot hit Bouclier d'amour [47565], Belle-Ange [24786]
R.I.P. Belle-Ange, Bouclier d'amour

And melee didn't even start.:( And I've got a 2 shield minion with a +13 protection and 300k hp on the PL minion (witch is good for my level).

Now I know you'll flame me with things like you could get some Evasion(but if i don't want to always train some big evasion in every strat I try just to be sure I'm not getting over killed), or you team is weak against that strat and I should just ignore this type of characters. Maybe I'm weak against those, but it's still not normal that I get killed in the range only.

Now, my point is I find this a bit stupid to put those rare Explosive Shots in store. Especially when they are other things that are in need and only wait to be *buffed*. Explosive Shots was already really strong, why put it stronger:(. Well I know my opinion doesn't mean anything but that was my opinion.

Wow that is certainly the biggest text I've written in CB :D

Oh yeah, I'm ready for comments, cause I know I'm going to have a lot of comments :).

The end. P.S. just to make this not only negative, the first one to CM me with the right number of how many times I wrote Explosive Shots will win 50k ( this is a good way to make you read all of it :D)

Sorry for the one that were not online at 2:00 am cause it's seems that we have a winner.

Is the answer 13?

congrats Kliktu!!

Kliktu December 2 2006 2:13 AM EST

Thank you! Thank you! *takes a bow*

chuck1234 December 2 2006 4:14 AM EST

ppl are just hoarding explo shots, maybe once they become more common, ppl will realise nothing's gained by hoarding them, then there'll be some sanity over here.

as for nerfing explo shots or disposing them off, the SoD minus explo shots is just a toy, like I said before, the ELB is way better anyday. If you're anxious to counter explo shots, go get an RoBF.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] December 2 2006 6:13 AM EST

Chucky, didn't I explain in the other thread how the RBF is no counter to Ex Shots?

the aura is like a 3.3% Damage reduction (or something like that...)

Is something broken with this change? Other types of 'rare' ammo seem to be spawning in the store.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] December 2 2006 6:19 AM EST

Nix on that last statement from me, they were sold to the store buy another player. ;)

:P

Brakke Bres [Ow man] December 2 2006 7:09 AM EST

yes, yes, yes, yes, nice change Jon, no one used those suckers anyway.

Lets see what you have in store for us in the coming change month

"Existing RP were transmogrified into Iron Shot. "


transmogrified? can I have a definition?

QBRanger December 2 2006 1:52 PM EST

trans·mog·ri·fy (trăns-mŏg'rə-fī', trănz-)
tr.v., -fied, -fy·ing, -fies.
To change into a different shape or form, especially one that is fantastic or bizarre. See synonyms at convert.

Per google.

Miandrital December 2 2006 2:06 PM EST

Oh, I figured it meant something similar to 'strategery'

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 2 2006 3:09 PM EST

possibly from The Transmogrification Machine from Calvin and Hobbes? Or does the term pre-date that?

bartjan December 2 2006 3:21 PM EST

It's already in the 1913 Webster dictionary that's on my computer. How old are Calvin&Hobbes?

bartjan December 2 2006 3:30 PM EST

Isn't Google great?

This site claims it's even a bit older...

Hyrule Castle December 2 2006 3:48 PM EST

next thing for changelog i would like to see... is to do away with the exp and rewards randomness... i just think it would be better if in one fight the exp wouldnt jump from 280-520... thats a big difference, and it takes time to tell if fighting that person is good or not ;D

AdminG Beee December 2 2006 3:53 PM EST

The word may have been around for a long time, but the "technology" is still new.
Thanks for mentioning them Novice, I have all the books. Fantastic!

Miandrital December 2 2006 4:29 PM EST

So our new iron shot is cutting edge technology? Interesting.

AdminNightStrike December 3 2006 9:35 PM EST

Only the iron shots that used to be rounded pebbles.

TheHatchetman December 6 2006 3:04 AM EST

How do we tell them apart?

Miandrital December 6 2006 5:20 AM EST

Duh!

Just smell them, and the ones with the Eau De Cardboard are the latest in CB technology.
