    I was going to spend some money to harvest a bit this month.. Then I realized I had aquired 100 nithron coins.. so I just used that for 30 days... I've played 1 night in a week.. saw 0 players... bored out of my mind..

    Came to see if there was a new fun patch..

    Saw the latest patch hitting the test server..

    Thought "what a joke.. these guys don't know what we want.."

    Saw this post above..

    Agree 100%.

    By the time you all get what you want from this game , we will be playing 100x better games in virtual reality/dream simulators.
    For real , this is beyond beating a dead horse eh?

    We're just grinding the bones for bonemeal at this point I assume.

    good job BPG..

    If you keep adding content slowly the situation will get better in this dark place.

    I tried the new polearm and GS ranges on the test server, and I'm questioning whether the changes actually took place.

    agreed I do not see much changing here with this "nerf" peeps still gonna use a fast GS need to make other weapons more desirable rather than trying to make GS less so.

    Honestly with the prevalence of great swords I feel the nerf was very reasonable.

    I don't think .05 reach matters at all, that's like going from 20-25 ping..

    People sure thought it mattered, got pissed off and cared when that same .05 was added to r70's in beta.

    But I agree taking it off isn't going to stop peeps from using gs

    My point is that people just don't want their favorite weapon nerfed, even if it is clearly the best. Other nerfs would have been a lot more punishing.

    Didn't ask for a nerf, suggested buffing the other weapons speed a bit.

    You sure it was .05 in beta on r70s?

    I think both approaches can work, just depends on design goals. The TTK does feel really high right now and greatswords are a part of that, so I can understand the desire to reduce the reach a bit.

    Sounds close. I tried looking through history, but couldn't see it. I know it wasn't very much of a change.

    You can do a lot of different things to balance weapons out. This approach is the same as daggers. They are faster, therefore they get a shorter reach. It's a small change, we'll see how it goes.

    That's fine. I think people were more upset it was ninja added, one of dests "Easter eggs" and his response to it, not the change itself.

    What if they buff all the weapons that need it to put them more on par with Greatswords?

    Than while were at it lets start fucking with the cooldowns on various spells just to fuck with people, that would fit right along with this greatsword/bunnyhopping nerf patch.


    AGREED

    It's an option. Personally I think that because the TTK is so fast in the current greatsword meta it makes more sense to nerf greatswords (bringing the TTK down a little overall).

    Making all greatswords .40 speed and all gc and ga .35 would lower the ttk without gimping melee reach on higher ping players.

    And also reduce dagger crits. Low ping orks with daggers are a nightmare.
