As the title suggests. I'd like to hear everyone's thoughts on the recent changes and what you honestly think about them.

I am so disappointed that we waited and only got 2 chapters! Like wth I finished that so quick and now I'm bored again! (I am a bit of a story line player) and why has the Zulia outfit been censored? As far as I know we have never had censored outfits so why now?

Just lol to you about warlock buff.
Warlock got in the past very nerfed. so they now bring it back a bit.
A lot of classes can out play it, if you can't well learn to play warlock and learn its weaknesses.

I'm not to happy about the changes to the sacred oil, to me it made it harder to obtain. The story was way to fast, and I'm not sure how long it will take me to get used to skills that were on the F key being changed.

 

Other than that as soon as I can do the new content stuff, which will be awhile I guess it's okay. :)

You do understand that they are far ahead of us and this was done based on 20 people ?  Not even talking about on the fact you decided to give us one of the best MAIN  FM's players ... well he was a main back then no idea what he is now.

 

Go to a main Assassin and tell me what he says about his class and whos the best.

 

What you shared is nothing close to "official" and I'm talking about pubs here were 90% of the community has a hard time to understand how to play there own class and that is were the real balance comes in to effect.

 

So no... FM's are not strong, were he stated the "buff" is in Q and E ...  really ? that's a buff ? indeed it helps... but against some classes that have charge or stupid jumps.. it's 0.

 

So.. no.. try again.

You have to be careful & take into account some differences.

The list jae did just point out that a FM mastered by top pro players is a strong class.

Plot twist, we always knew that anyway buff or not.

Which means that FM is not a strong classs overall for any player regarding his skils, whereas warlock is just clearly no brain no matter what your skills are.

Fm - highest learning curve - hard to master -> Strong only when mastered.

Wl - Easy to learn - easy to master -> Strong whatever your skills are.

Sum - Very easy to learn - easy to master -> Strong but a bit less cuz simple class.

 

Etc...

So yeah people say fm op etc but theres is like 2 or 3 good fm at the top and the rest still doesn't master the class yet and are far behind.

And if FM was so so strong for the average player we would have seen wayyy more FM in invitationals tournaments but so far there was just only one fm who was Intro and who got rekt pretty badly.

Now I'm sure if u make a poll of the average players of the community the thing will be different except that wl and summoner & bd will be at the top and people will be like

"oh I heard FM is quite strong yeah... but honestly even if I'm a average+ or low player I destroy every FM tag its freewin so I dunno why people say they are strong"

If you think the game has to be balanced around random pleps that cant play the game thats YOUR oppinion. Considering there are also tournaments in bns it would be while maybe ok for a lot of the player base *REALLY* shitty for everything competitive. Sure, competitive players also sometimes rage about classes that 'play by themselves'. But they also aknowledge that some classes might beat those classes if played good enough, while the other class does not have the tools do combat that. So witch class is favored now? The one that stomps the noobs or the other one that wins when both are playing top notch?

 

Im sin main too and id tell you spin classes are the hardest to fight (for sins). Then fm and summ, but those are both doable. I struggle more against summ than i think i should. Then war. The rest is 'easy matchups'. Though thats not a balance statement, thats merely the sin matchups considering nothing else. What if bds the same bds i complain about complain about kfms? Are kfms op now? Asking a player about their specific matchup and balance are two completely independent things (at least partially)

 

 

On the warlock buff. Ive had a warlock ive done tags with yday complain that he can no longer use his 4 in aircombos. So.. if thats so the speed increase might not really matter in comparison. There where no notes on that.

They also changed other things, like you can actually resist boltstep now with x stealth resist and keep stealth. Also our tab escape is different i had a sin stay in strealth when i 'tech chased' his tab with boltstrike. But i still might have to test that further. Might have just been rng.

 

About the fm thing i wanted to write that before but my phones battery died.

Its not so much about q/e. Sure thats also good. But you also got a big damage buff as dual dragons are now actually useable. Ofc, you will say you need frost orb. What does frost orb matter when you can finish your opponent with that in an aircombo where you before could not. Also frost orbs run out at some point and sometimes you can wallbang players and just instantly get back a frost orb without them being able to tab. Nice mechanic btw. Players even make fun of it and call their chars something along the lines of 'wallbangislegal' and what not. You have two openings (daze and grap) that go threw block. Technically aerial ice thingy too. Two tab escapes. Two ice shields. Projectile block. And what is that argument that you can now no longer walk around with that.. a lot of fms choosed to play this one anyways, before the change (lower cd more heal). They just played the other one to play less scummy/stally i think. Youre also now able to use ss offensively and tab defensively. We have those buffs for a long time now and all fms did was complain that they can no longer pve threw bds resistance as easiely and thats why the class is trash now lul. Like other classes can just magically make it disappear. I can make bms block disappear, because it s*cks. Everything else is a 5 second stall to pretty much all classes. At least you can stall it out most of the time. What do we do against your ice? Sure, i can decoy or q. But you think if feels good to press decoy right next to it and be like "PLEASE press the button fm.." They press the button a lot actually, they really do.

 

+ You know the top EU players also made a spreadsheet where they voted about what class is the most op. We are a bit behind kr as you said, right? Yet, not warlock is at #1 but fm instead. Does not really mean fm is better or warlock, i dont think you can clearly say that. But pretty much everywhwere you see fm, warlock and sin as top classes with the ocassional des or bd been thrown in.

What are the last quests you can do? I have a "Wait until you find a way to Solak", so I'm guessing that will come at a later time? Also, I have Fate of the Aransu: Chapter 5: Reuninos and Regrets, which appears you can't complete unless you do the new 24 man raid?
