So, I just watched Firespark8’s new video on the upcoming changes to combat, and I’m pretty disappointed: TL;DR, bleeding in general and daggers in particular are about to nerfed hard.
Why? Seriously, it’s like every time you guys touch the combat, you make it worse and worse. When you first rolled CE out, we had a great Witcher 3-style roll, we had faster combat that felt intuitive and fun, and it’s like the company seems determined to turn combat into a dull slog.
From a design standpoint, I simply don’t get it. Daggers were one of the last fun, challenging and satisfying weapons left in the game after spears, greatswords, and others were ruined. For the love of Yog: we really don’t need the combat to be any slower/more boring for the sake of ‘realism’, okay?
