So here goes my two cents: Regarding issues and general Feedback. My impression remains the same, yet… I know that some things are here to stay, regardless of how much I would wish of it otherwise. I speak namely of Explosives, the Effect visually, audiobly and overall.
Short introduction: Explosives, these does trigger some nasty health-based effects… in more ways than one. I sit here with shock, twitching (shaking hands, just enough to make me feel it… not enough to make it visibly appearant to those around me. I wish not to write more of how my mind gets or what inhibits it… but I can say this much of it: it ain’t pretty.
Playing The Secret world, were worth the shocks (as back then, it could be limited a bit more… less exposure over a short moment of time - aka, it didn’t appear within a few timeframes of the second before the next… so yeah, you could brace yourself for the next upcomming one without having a follow-up seconds later.
- Yes it did contain it, but it wasn’t a stream you couldn’t stop/halt/cut off… so that’s why I mention it.
- Some might wish to have a 100% accurate representation, though safe to say… I’m not in the right state of mind… nor health to tick down the seconds, to test it out once more.
In The Secret World Legends, this is where it all proceeds to cause reactions from my end.
I wished to pick up the Assualt rifle, as it had been ok during the beta phase… surely enough prominent, on the BOOM, BOOM… BOOM, BOOM - side of things, but back then it could be a bit more controlled or so I believed.
Nowadays… not so much. For who knows a bit if not more of my state - has given me either tips or outright told me to keep some distance from them, while healing for instance… while I sat on support heal/DPS.
During some moments I try to close my eyes if it’s possible, and hope it won’t kill my character off straight away… Despite that… I don’t mind my character dying compared to my psyche being pushed to it’s limits.
I wish to avoid having to ask players or ‘Randos’ as some has called 'em… to avoid using rifles (due to the Granade usage) nothing wrong with using a rifle just keep that in mind. (Re-read this, until it sticks - I wish not to be cruel, but there is a point to be made in there!)
Even the few times when I have nicely asked if they could relax… with the ichy triggerfinger with the MIRV launcher equipt… Still get the feeling that, it may be more than I got the rights to ask, since some has expressed that… they feel a bit preassured when asked or uncomfortable … might even say strongly confused by the question. Replies such as this “Why though?.. I mean what’s the point in…that?” - and akin, hasn’t been uncommon.
I’m honestly baffled why some has responded that: “If it is so bad as you put it…/If you can’t manage that… why are you even playing the game?”
I mean, come on! … I played The Secret World, since 2013… loved the story and most of it’s overall content (YOU WON’T hear that comming from me, regarding most games I’ve played… Despite being kind and polite, when it comes to my opinions about a game… I can be a critical, cynical, wretched being… a Not-so-Mr.Niceguy by then.) … there will always be something I will notify others about… or feel strong disatisfaction from, so being as high up on my list as it is… amongst the top five for me over the course of my years… least for the ones I have memory of.
… SO why wouldn’t I try to play SWL then, when South Africa and possibly more stories might be told as well?!
“Then don’t use a rifle then! … simple fix to your problem right there.” … If I hear that, I do not consider it any better. It will not be ideal, as it removes 1 entire weapon and page… sending it down the drain.
I’ve been infuriated by that, for longer than most could fathom… yet I sat back, and held back whichever form of filth that filled my head at the moment, to avoid spilling malice in form of getting on the defensive side.
In means of the Audio, I’ll keep this rather brief.
It’s spot on - difficult to compare to a IED, or a plastic explosive. Due to experience… I can say as much.
Even the granades are on par audio-vise… all in all, the one responsible in that department got a good ear (and moreso, better hearing than me! )
So an A+ on the excecution there!
My wishes would be a toggle function for these effects, visual-wise… NB!: Keep in mind that I’m speaking of the effect, not the ability as a whole.
… I’d prefer a toggle option, but I’m not expecting one. Simply hoping it might be viewed as a possibility!
This is the end, thanks for your time - and my appologize for the Novel of a text. Cheers to each and all!
