    It is great but not the difficulty of the content we get in a episode aswell as the quality of that content.

    Dc is not that old

    I was 29 in January (in my 20's) when the game started. It's been 10 years (29-39) this past January, my birthday is later in the year (several months over 40 now).

    I never said it was in operation for 20 years. Thanks for trying to check my math, though.

    I didn't thoroughly read it. I just naturally assumed it was another stat scaling complaint as i had just came from such a topic. xD

    No one ever said you were. When I was a kid, I played Space Invaders and Super Mario Bros. a lot. Now, I only play them on occasion. People's tastes and preferences change as they get older. I still like DCUO, but I don't play it in the same way as I used to. Much like my RL friends, I don't spend all night sitting around drinking and talking. My friends and I have grown up, moved to different parts of the country. We still talk and message lot, and do sometimes game together, but we only see each other a few times a year. We're still good friends, but our relationships have changed over time.

    Are you static in your life, your relationships, your job, and your preferences from ten years ago? The only permanent thing is impermanence.

    He’s right tho

    I used to play dcuo religiously for a few years … then eso came out and I left it for a while … I’ve come back peridoically for a month or so at a time but the fire isn’t what it was.

    I still enjoy it just I focus more on other games now.

    I even quit eso

    I look for games now where I can play all content either solo or with people since my gaming hours don’t take up most my day anymore

    That’s why I play games like outriders or monster hunter even marvel avengers (if it were better I would have kept playing it)

    Dcuo you can’t really play solo I mean you can but it’s not designed with thst in mind and if you’re playing solo It’s more taxing

    I don’t fault anyone for wanting to leave … but I would advise they don’t get rid of their stuff or money just in case

    So Khandaq was the last straw for you? Content that's literally 10 years old? Khandaq that was literally easier 10 years ago? That's the worst "I quit" reason I've seen

    The Stat-clamped instances were never supposed to be a challenge, at least, not for end game players. The whole purpose was to increase the queue times of these instances, remove the ability of players to "roll through" or solo instances that were never meant to be that way.

    To provide a more enjoyable experience both for the up-levelling player and a re-visiting end-player. This is the warning I told my league-mates that were for Stat-clamping. Don't expect a challenge. Do not expect the same level of difficulty that you remember.

    That challenge that players are looking for in these old instances are supposed to come from "Save the Universe" content.

    The only times when you are supposed to fail in these instances is when you fail a particular goal. Such as in PZone, preventing all six supplies to go through the portal, or in the First boss of FOS 1 (failing to eliminate in time) or in Saving Justice (failing to save the 3 JSAers. Most of the mechanics in these content is supposed to be survivable for players and easily more so if they are with competent support roles.

    This is the reason why the DEVS are STILL devoting resources and listening to player's feedback on any and all instances being run.

    Leaving over a Khandaq change? At this point in time?

    Nerfing a fairly simple Raid from early in the game's life is a symptom of dumbing the game down for casual play. There was a time when you pretty much needed a regular group of players to Raid with. You at least vetted the folks you picked up on LFG. Rushing players to endgame and now the Omnibus have created more casual game experience - the difficultly needs to fit that.
    This new business model with a currency based subscription makes all of the content seem less important and only there for the grind. It's not a skill based game selling new content anymore. It's a game that sells currency to 'level up' widgets that do things to make the game easier. The original game concept is fundamentally broken compared to even 5 years ago let alone 5 months ago. I think that player turnover has been embraced, $1000 from 4 people over a few months is easier to get than $1000 from one person over years. Loosing episodes in the subscription means players aren't paying for a gameplay experience, they're paying for progress.

    Yea that’s pretty much it, I nothing bad to to say the game went in a different direction l then the one I started as basically a young adult I’m 33 now, and from the post here majority of the player base seem ok with what the game is currently that’s when I knew that it was better I step back and simply find something that suits what I’m looking for.

    You pointing out the key to everything this ain’t the only reason but the fact that content that is literally 10 years old needs to be toned down cause players today refuse to work as a team speaks a lot to the direction the game is today and the solution to how the dev team handles issues. As I said before the bonds I have in this game with players came from the struggles we had back then, the time we spent beating the harder content like inner, sub, prime we went into raids not expecting to beat them every time. That is what makes a MMO great to me, pushing myself to be better, I haven’t been forced to grow as a player in Dc in years and to me that’s a sign that says I need to try explore my options in gaming.
