YEP.

I just watched a pro game with a huskar, riki, ogre magi and legion commander. Madness.

This game should be pretty huge, looking forward to seeing buddy franklin up against his old team.

Are you really butt hurt because you can't exploit the game any more by farming a magical cave?

It seems like people might be stretching themselves as hard as they can to enjoy this game if removing a magical cave leaves them upset about the progression.

More people are mad that they have removed the ability to get loot from the queens missions and break it down into upgrade material. Fuck the loot cave.

As someone who doesn't have the game, what are the implications of this?

I'm reading it as Bungie being super stingy with drop rates on the new content causing the new content that is already so badly craved to be less appealing.

Like i said i haven't played the game but everything i hear makes it sound like they are being stingy as hell with the loot to fit some long term plan. If blizzard has taught us anything, it's be free-er with the loot and then just make better loot later. I mean hire a fucking team or something with your moneypile.

Well, the upgrade materials you need to level up legendary and exotic armors is super rare. And you get them from either doing one, yes only one, public event per day. And from engrams on a random decrypt. Or from breaking down other legendary or exotic gear. But they now removed the ability to get this upgrade item from the armor you get from the queens quests. Which is a guaranteed piece of legendary armor. Best way in the game to get one. And it only gives you one of three each time. And you do it up to 6 times a day. And there is no point now. Because breaking it down doesn't give you that upgrade material. Its not even a drop rate issue. They just straight up said, you can't farm. We don't want you to be able to upgrade your armor. We don't want you to be level 26 or higher. We want you to struggle. Upgrading this armor increases your light level, which is what levels you up past level 20. And its super hard to level that stuff up as the upgrade materials are super, super rare. It wasn't even an exploit. Which is why so many people are pissed it was removed.

O i see, thanks for the reply.

I'm sure this is less complicated in game than it sounds written out :D

My plans to wait 6 months to a year for this one are reinforced.

Edit - I hope this game is rewarded for trying to do something different in regards to the nemesis system.

It doesn't seem that different though. It's the same as the million other bullshit "your choices drastically effect the world" claims we've been given since the beginning of the last generation just given a new name.

Jaded much?

I don't think they ever sold it as anything it's not. No one in the triple A industry tackles ANYTHING regarding AI in this age and they have built a full system here and then built the game around it.

If this game can does well maybe other developers can quit playing it as safe and innovate in regards to AI, something that has been completely stagnant for the last 10 years..

Maybe not every game can deliver the mind bending peter molyneux fever dream we all want, but at least they are trying to do SOMETHING.

HOW THE FUDGE DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS/ISN'T?

?

Sorry i don't speak vague caps lock?

If you mean the nemesis system, well they have shown it off for hours at this point over E3 and recently at gamespot. Also there have been multiple writeups on it since they started the game.

The basic ideas of it aren't exactly a secret, in fact it's all they have showed off of the game forever.

also just offtopic from the topic question itself, is it worth getting napoleon if one gets Empire? and which is better of the two.

As i recall Napoleon is basically empire with more cannons and a more focused campaign. I thought napoleon was pretty good at the time but i'm not sure what the general consensus is on that.
