Petition for changemonth? (in General)


TheHatchetman May 15 2010 2:15 PM EDT

Nerf something, buff something. If it's broke, fix it. If it's fixed, break it. In short, make us think. Everyone wants to blame people leaving the game on "too much time required" or "people taking idealogical discussions personally and acting like idiots" or "Zenai's fart-smelling-breathe"... I personally think it has more to do with everyone above 3m MPR without a bonus growing at almost the exact same rate, and strategy not changing in the slightest in over a year... The admins could perhaps be granted a little more rope when it comes to punishing trolls in order to help keep forums in line a little better too, but that's another issue, perhaps for another thread down the road.

Supposedly there's a new item in the works.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 15 2010 2:34 PM EDT

Maybe we should try another WTB Changemonth. ;)

Cube May 15 2010 3:13 PM EDT

Seconded. I liked how CB kept mixing it up. That seems to have stopped.

Am I the only one who prefers stability in a game?

In my opinion, things are more balanced now than they have been in a long, long time. Sure, there are things here that need attention. A bug fix here, a balance tweak there (*coughxbowscough*). But change for the sake of change is not just unnecessary, it's harmful. We don't need another massive balance shift "just because."

That said, a new supporter item would be nice. But no needless game overhauls.

get rid of drops, add something new once in awhile to make it more interesting.

get rid of drops
That I can agree with.

Demigod May 15 2010 4:06 PM EDT

The drops don't bother me anymore. They've been tweaked enough that I accept them. What I hate is the lack of income that doesn't correspond to the drops. As I'm saving up for another minion, it's a huge burden on me.

Lord Bob May 15 2010 4:23 PM EDT

I just got a drop today, and I still hate them.

Stability in one place = stagnation = boredom, at least in my opinion.


get rid of drops

Even if by doing so cash and XP rewards stayed exactly where they are now?


What I hate is the lack of income that doesn't correspond to the drops.

A tale of 3 issues.
1) The drop system. Either you like the drops, or you don't.
2) the cut to monetary rewards. I seperated it from the drops in my mind within days of the drops being announced, and listed it as two seperate issues intentionally... I look at linking the two now as the same as saying "I don't like armor proficiency cutting down SG damage because they nerfed Steelskin."
3) This thread. About a whole nother issue all together. Not about any specific changes

AdminTitan May 15 2010 4:34 PM EDT

I think NS should remove the drops and keep the rewards the same, just b/c people complain so much about them. It'd make me chuckle.

Lord Bob May 15 2010 4:34 PM EDT

I'll take that over chaos and imbalance.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 15 2010 5:13 PM EDT

There's a difference between chaos, and livening up the game by introducing changes.

It's a thin line, granted! ;)

I'd like to see what you'd change if the wand was in your hand Hatch

Mythology [The Knighthood] May 15 2010 6:11 PM EDT

I wouldn't like to see Hatch if he had his wand in his hand, each to their own though novice :P

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 15 2010 6:12 PM EDT

Pnar Pnar!

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 15 2010 6:45 PM EDT

I hate you Myth

TheHatchetman May 15 2010 6:51 PM EDT

It is indeed a tricky subject... not sure what I'd come up with as of yet.

QBOddBird May 16 2010 1:34 AM EDT

I personally think it has more to do with everyone above 3m MPR without a bonus growing at almost the exact same rate, and strategy not changing in the slightest in over a year

I agree with this, the issue is finding the proper balance

People want to have a reasonable ability to compete without the win going to the fastest clicker, but BA regen is gimped too far you get what we've got now

And that's just not an issue I see a big changemonth fixing, it would merely be a distraction from (IMO, of course) the real issue

That being said, Nightstrike always has great things planned for this game and I look forward to seeing them eventually come to fruition

I agree that someone should make that thread about forum moderation, but as you said, it's another issue for another time
