An Enforcer's Crossbow [4x10577] (+290)


I'll be AFK all weekend, but at least there is another target, be nice if I'd had a control fight or two against him...

What in the hell is this really supposed to be? Shots in the dark when someone already knows? Stop wasting time player's Admins. There is no fun in this so stop trying to force it on us it is stupid in it's entirety to do so.

You want to test stuff then give us the change so we can either prove/ disprove it has happened properly or not. This would be the bug fixing stage which can be fun because it is actually "Productive".

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] July 21 2012 8:16 AM EDT

OK Zen, that's enough.

You don't agree, fine, we get that. Please keep your comments on the outrage that is keeping game information 'secret' in the other thread.

Don't drag this one off topic with yet more ranting please.

Joel July 21 2012 8:23 AM EDT

If the Exbow has been 'balanced', then I don't think "Strength -46,784,302" should even still be possible... That's my 2 cents.

Duke July 21 2012 8:31 AM EDT

I would test its if i could but i dont have a exbow nor willing to sac some money to test iys

TH3 C0113CT0R July 21 2012 8:55 AM EDT

like i said in the other thread too, this is far from a balance.. or a nerf, it seems like more of a buff, just erase the damned weapon from the game, its a blight on cb civilization. how can -46m str be a balance

TH3 C0113CT0R July 21 2012 8:56 AM EDT

Duke I have one, Im not wasting my time testing it, I'll have some fun during the tourney but other then that forget it...

Zenai July 21 2012 11:08 AM EDT

OK Zen, that's enough.

Far from it GL. Until this crap stops neither will I.

You don't agree, fine, we get that.

Me and Many others as well I just happen to be the most vocal at this point that is all.

Please keep your comments on the outrage that is keeping game information 'secret' in the other thread.

Why when this is DIRECTLY related to that. Why test something that we have no idea what the testing is directly. Stop wasting player's time give us the change so we can PROPERLY test it. It's fairly simple no?

Don't drag this one off topic with yet more ranting please.

The Topic IS the change and testing of the Ex/AxBow so no I am NOT off topic. I am about as ON Topic as I can possibly be. It is STUPID to withhold information of this nature on an item that is being tested and for what might I ask? Oh yeah to figure out the change............

If you can tell it in a week you can tell it now, it is really not that difficult.

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] July 21 2012 12:29 PM EDT

"If the Exbow has been 'balanced', then I don't think "Strength -46,784,302" should even still be possible... That's my 2 cents."

-46 million strength doesn't mean anything. It has been started several times that once numbers go past zero, CB goes crazy.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] July 21 2012 4:01 PM EDT

Zen, are you testing anything in this thread? No.

Do so, and please keep rants out of it.

Venting steam is fine, and we all need to do so from time to time. Spreading it across multiple threads on the same subject, dragging threads off topic in the process isn't.

Fair warning, if it continues, I *will* start to moderate posts and threads.

Sickone July 21 2012 4:01 PM EDT

The -46 mil ST at the end doesn't really matter all that much.
What DOES matter however is the near total drain of ST in the very first shot which only accounted for 3.2% of target's HP worth of damage.

Zenai July 21 2012 4:06 PM EDT

Pointing out blind testing being a bad move is not off topic GL. It is saying that the source material is moot which absolutely affects this exact thread.

Tell us the change so we can properly test it. Also again I must iterate that it is not JUST the ExBow that received the change but ALSO the AxBow.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] July 21 2012 4:27 PM EDT

Does it have anything to do with AC effecting the drain?

From novices post it seems it took at least 8 hits for a complete drain.

hmmm..

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] July 21 2012 10:00 PM EDT

This thread should help with testing

SuiteStuff [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] July 22 2012 1:21 PM EDT

Can someone please explain why i have almost a mill negative strength???????? we are under 10kmpr and i got hit 5 times for around 150-200 damage...would post whole fight but too many mispelled words cuz minion names so no go.

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] July 22 2012 1:56 PM EDT

after the first few fights of the tourney it still seems my best defense against the E bow is not getting hit. Joel was draining me fully with 1 hit from what must be a tiny bow.

I guess the parameters have been changed somewhat so that the penalties are greater than before when doing damage less than maybe 2.5% but the bonus has been increased (maybe cap removed?) for doing maybe 10% HP damage.

Joel July 22 2012 2:01 PM EDT

I'm thinking of dropping out of the tourney... People are racking up kills against me, because of a bug that's preventing me from buying an RoS to complete my strategy.

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] July 22 2012 2:15 PM EDT

you sure you havnt got the RoS - it says you cant but but they show up in inv

SuiteStuff [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] July 22 2012 2:18 PM EDT

yeah you just hit equip and they just showed up there regardless.

Joel July 22 2012 2:19 PM EDT

Wow, freaky! Thanks for the help guys!

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] July 22 2012 2:38 PM EDT

I don't know what the hell is going on with the E bow now, Joel's new T char just fully drained me with 1 24 hp hit versus 7.7k hp !!!

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] July 22 2012 2:49 PM EDT

Something weird seems to be going on, my damage falls to minimum in melee without getting hit by the E bow.
