How the hell did a post about making an event (Which is long overdue.) turned into a debate about balancing?
TL;DR (Highly doubt anyone's gonna read the long one.)
Bring back events that gives capsules instead of just GM hunts and weekend time farming events.
Powercreep will always exist. Wanna fix it?
Remove it. Compensate those who have it with free AP or w/e if buffing/nerfing sh!t doesn't work.
YES. PLEASE. IT'S BEEN SO LONG. ALMOST AS LONG AS NOT GETTING A NEW SEASON.
But seriously though. Besides the GM hunts and weekend 2-hour farm rooms. It'd be nice to have events like past Summer and Halloween events.
Though I might be saying this because I'm a masochist for disappointment in capsule opening. (Still waiting on that "Open all" button, just sayin'.)
When was the last time we had events that gives out unique outfits like that male Halloween set with the horns and dope a$$ pants.
Or god forbid the summer set with topless dudes. #NoHomo
How about that time we get parts of Shaman set? We should do that for the next new set from the community contest JUST LIKE the Shaman set.
And no, I'm not counting tier-spender (When it comes to sets.) because not everyone is a f*cking whale.
Give us parts of an outfit that may last for a few days or permanent, pen stats, random stats, AP stats or FP stats.
Not G or I capsules.
We can keep those GM hunts and weekend time farming events. Not asking to get rid of those. Just bring back old events.
(I know I'm literally saying what's been said a million times but hey- I'm responding to the post.)
Also; (I only read the first page and skimmed the second page.)
my (stupid and no one asked for) 2 cents about powercreeped and OP sh!t, specifically UDM. (Applied to any and all, if you'll have it.)
Either remove HP and SP mastery all together and just add in DM as a skill. UDM as an event item or caps.
(Give those who already have perm DM and UDM compensation for losing something "special", but it was for "balancing" reasons.")
Remove DM/UDM all together and just compensate with free AP or let those who lost their perm DM/UDM get a set/wep of their choice via however method you give stuff to contest winners.
(Which I'm sure isn't an easy task but hey- There's like more or less a thousand players left who play the game. I doubt more than 40% of the active players actually have UDM. So it's plausible. Also keep back up data of the weapon removed just in case it might ever make a comeback like Vital Shock.)
Nerf DM and UDM.
(Sorry if I'm just repeating what's already been said but again, this is just my pointless 2 cents.)
Just add DM in pen shop. UDM can be a capsule item. (My option.)
I personally think DM would do next to nothing to the game since people mainly use things like binds, anchors, walls.
HP and SP mastery would just sit on the corner with detect and metallic, used by very few individuals like myself (Who uses detect in TD, DM and BR.)
Using that "smartphone" logic...
Who tf cares?... It's just a smartphone. Use what you have. Use what you like. Use what you think you're better with.
Comparing it to the railgun mistake: Railgun's a 1hit-potential spam weapon that shouldn't even be considered as a snipe weapon anymore BECAUSE IT'S PRETTY MUCH COMPARABLE TO AN ASSAULT RIFLE.
Sorry. I just hate railguns.
BUT people still use a sharpshooter, though rare. (Goes back to my "very few individuals" statement.)
People using boots have more HP and SP?
You know that's the problem with boots to begin with... (I use boots and even I dislike how broken they are.)
But there are also people using boots with anchor. You think they'll just use HP and SP mastery instead of their trusty shortcut surfboard?
And some people would rather have more SP when using boots.
Pretty sure everything I wrote/typed in is stupid nonsensical white noise to you guys but f*ck it.
I typed it all this far now, might as well look like an !d!ot anyway.
I just want to enjoy the game as it comes.
Like it or hate it, deal with it.
Here's a baby(?) bat gif for your wasting your time. Presumably.
(Side note: G'dang, the fonts, sizes and other sh!t used to type this sh!t out is inconsistent. Or maybe it's just me being inept...)
