First of all the leveling balance is horrible there is basically no progression.Running around to max level is not progress, might as well remove levels and let us craft t3 right away because that’s how the game should be played right now at least on PvP servers. Skipping whole t1 and t2 part of game is horrible game design, game had better balance in early access regarding that!
Black ice is complete joke to get compared to it’s counter part Reinforced stone(Actually had to google name because I forgot what they were called). Can’t really comment on t2 there is no use to build any t2 piece because black ice being so easy to make and you skip the whole t2 progress anyways!
Resources on 2x server:
Obsidian and Black ice nodes are giving way to many materials, you can get 400 per node with obsidian pick, and there is so many of them that it’s not even funny.
Star Metal is basically useless? Because the other stuff is much easier to get and is better or same.
Obsidian Tools with Advanced Tool Kit basically gives you 22-24 resource per hit.It literally takes less then minute to fill up your inventory with 1500black ice or obsidian.
Ran from start of North all the way down to South desert following river with sickle gathering aloe leaves and I finished with 5300aloe leaves, which means I probably don’t have to do that ever again which took less then 10minutes. Even if this was on 1x server this is still broken!
The new combat system is a lot of fun but really frustrating at same time because running away is so easy, I’ve tried so many different things to catch people at 20% but anything you do slows down your character and if you fail once you will never catch up to him. Getting that 4combo on someone should reward you, why can’t you just add movement penalty per 20% missing health or something like that.
Way to easy to obtain you don’t even care if you lose it anymore and that’s mostly because of stupid gathering.
Way to expensive not worth it especially with Vaults around and those stupid god shield that don’t get consumed, the only people getting raided mostly now are probably new people or people that didn’t play much and don’t know about exploration leveling and are building in t1 and t2 with no vaults.
How is orb stacking still a thing this method basically nullifies any smart building because you can burn through any t3 wall/door/foundation doesn’t matter it all burns. Raiding with jars was perfectly fine and expensive and you actually had to think how to break inside base.
Remove orb stacking and increase jar damage by 1.7x or something.
What happened to all the server options PVP-Fast and PVP-Normal, PVP Mayham why is everything 2x with raid and purge times it makes the game boring and predictable!
So I have around 1300hours in this game with very little afk about 100hours in release and 1200 early access.
And best times I had in this game was before you wiped all servers and started with PVP-Fast, PVP-Normal. Now some of you will say you are crazy man with all exploits and stuff in game(Let’s not count those in that’s just part of development I guess).
The fact is that during those times the game in my opinion had best balance it ever had you actually felt some sort of accomplishment when you made your “base, armor, weapon, whatever” there was always something you had to do gather/pvp/build etc.
Now on release I have bunch of vaults full of best gear, legendary weapons, resources with no fear of them being destroyed because of how OP vaults are right now.There is no need for me to go out there and gather anything at all because why when I have it all for next year? And with that the game is very boring for me right now and I feel like nothing is really an accomplishment in game anymore, 7of my clan mates already bailed because of this reason
