Ugliest Nerf? (in General)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 12 2009 9:21 PM EDT

Here is the meanest nerf I could think of for familiars (without just taking away HP or DD).

Make them always spawn in front of the tat holder.
No more familiars in the 5th minion spot!

What is the Ugliest, meanest nerf you can think of?

Cone of cold, meet friendly fire.

Have familiars go back to how they first were.

20 HP.

Force all familiar based teams to use AS or suffer the consequences.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 12 2009 9:28 PM EDT

I was about to post taking away natural HP from familiars. But *some* people beat me to it. :)

Rawr May 12 2009 9:52 PM EDT

Get rid of junction?

QBRanger May 12 2009 9:53 PM EDT

For familiars: Go back to the pre junction days.

For anything: Lower the base damage of all missile weapons by 1.
Or: Make DM not stack, only the highest one works.

was gonna suggest we trash AC and the ToE, so that we could cripple them and their natural counter (the VB), but apparently somebody else had the idea first :P

MM fires from the front.

three4thsforsaken May 12 2009 10:24 PM EDT

Isn't it bad that we find DDs synonymous with familiars?

QBRanger May 12 2009 10:32 PM EDT

That is not at all strange to me.

With the xp gained, familiars easily outpace minions, except perhaps on single minions characters.

My single minion at 3.4M MPR had about 17M levels.

A familiar about 8M, has 10M levels.

Therefore a 2 minion character would have close to 8.5M levels each if same.

3 minions even less, 4 much worse.

The familiar, given junction, can be the most powerful mage on most characters. Then you use your minions to support it.

three4thsforsaken May 12 2009 10:35 PM EDT

Yeah, you're right. I feel like statements like those really reflect the current state of CB.

the ugliest nerf that i can think of is to kill of all ability to transfer anything in the game.

QBOddBird May 12 2009 11:26 PM EDT

worst possible nerf I can think of:

leave the tutorial as is.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] May 12 2009 11:27 PM EDT

ooooh, that would cripple all hope of retaining new members...diabolical!

Cube May 12 2009 11:44 PM EDT

20BA/5min 100 BA cap - Nerf to those without time on their hands

j'bob May 12 2009 11:48 PM EDT

Incorporate all DD spell levels into NW to be applied to that encumbrance thingy.

AdminNightStrike May 12 2009 11:55 PM EDT

Make ED's cast before the familiars spawn.........


QBOddBird May 13 2009 12:01 AM EDT

hahaha, wicked NS >:D

Untouchable May 13 2009 12:08 AM EDT

Make Fire Ball pre-nerf days

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 13 2009 12:20 AM EDT

Erase all ability to use anything except your fists this includes UC! Boxer Blender Woot!

On a serious note I believe the ugliest Nerf I can think of is simple, Characters are Non Retireable/Transferable. You made it now your stuck with it >:)

Admiralkiller [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 13 2009 12:21 AM EDT

A spell that traps them in a bubble for XX turns so damage (or bonus to stats) is taken or given depending on tattoo.

j'bob May 13 2009 12:23 AM EDT

Reverse nerf psychology...

allow multies.

NOW EVERYONE can try again (and again and again) and have the strongest most OP characters!

Demigod May 13 2009 12:33 AM EDT

Nerf brand AxBow? Actually, some people might love that idea.

Sickone May 13 2009 12:52 AM EDT

Merge all DD familiars into a single new "Tattoo of Amplification", which would have similar effects to a "Tattoo of Augmentation", but fine-tuned for mages (add 100% of tattoo level as DD level to the minion holding it).

three4thsforsaken May 13 2009 12:53 AM EDT

Bring back Spid from the dead.

Rawr May 13 2009 1:11 AM EDT

Remove ablative shield
nerfs sut :D

Steve G May 13 2009 1:27 AM EDT

the ugliest nerf bar none, was the announcement of CB2 :p

Demigod May 13 2009 1:49 AM EDT

Steve G wins. That nerf made me quit the first time.

IndependenZ May 13 2009 3:14 AM EDT

Unlimited BA refresh. Just clickin' away :P

FailBoat[SG] [Forever Alone] May 13 2009 3:32 AM EDT

Ugliest Nerf:

CB2 dies and there is no ressurection.

TheHatchetman May 13 2009 4:08 AM EDT

"Make ED's cast before the familiars spawn......... "

Don't EO's cast at the same time? :P

BadFish May 13 2009 12:13 PM EDT

Prettiest nerf i can think of:

Make it against game policy and a bannable offense to trade CB items or cash for real currency, except through the built-in link for buying supportership and supporter items through Jon.

Mesoshort May 13 2009 12:14 PM EDT

+1 to badfish vote ;D
