Devs Its Time For Aura Stacking

    Lets say i wanted to combine 2 auras in our style, For example Scorching aura as aura layer 1 with orange nimbus aura as layer 2, People love this and guys like me hate having the rest of their body aura less, letting us combine them would add another layer to customizing characters and would encourage more people to buy capsules.

    I agree for the simple fact I would love to wear a hand aura and full body aura at the same time. That’d be pretty cool. :D +1

    It'd be cool and fun to play with, but I think there'd be a risk of hitting a breaking point in terms of performance.

    Right now we can equip auras, accessories, skins and materials (including chromas) all with varying levels of active effects, not to mention all sorts of power effects when in combat. All of that has to perform while in a multiplayer online environment, and sooner or later there's going to be a point reached where things just get bogged down due to all the effects taking place.

    There's also the possibility that they've tried this internally and it just didn't look good to them so they decided not to pursue it further. Like or dislike how a particular costume item looks in the game, the devs do put in a lot of work to make sure it looks good (even if it doesn't agree with our own aesthetic sensibilities) so it's not outside the realm of possibility that they tried it and said, "Nope, doesn't look good."

    Can we move away from DCauraandmaterialrunwayUniverseOnline? Got enough Auras got enough Materials, enough with the gamble heavy additions, sheesh. Why not some faction raids or something?

    "Encourage more people to buy capsules..." Do you not realize the detriment that those very capsules are? People are basically gambling their money away to be able to acquire such auras, materials, what have you, and we're pretending that's okay. It's a means of taking advantage of our money. There's nothing about that to be encouraged. Let me know when they want to start converting such styles as one time purchases straight from the marketplace; where they should've been from the start. You know, something that's a bit more in favor of the players. Let's encourage THAT!

    This. At some point you bump into technological limitations, be they due to hardware or software, whether client or server side as well.

    This, the powers itself are already heavily detailed and can sometimes be uncomfortable when running PvE due to not being able to see certain details in the game, so stacking auras is already gamebreaking when you consider materials, accessories, and auras already being available to us simultaneously, if I had to choose between stacking auras or just a graphical update, I would choose the graphical update even though personally I don't think this game needs a graphic overhaul, but thats just me.

    Time Capsules is not the issue imo, the issue is whats repeatedly in the timecapsules, it would be nice for once if we can get some power skins, that can change the colors of our powers or something, and sometimes add in a chance to get a O.G material or aura thst people has been begging for.

    the OP is talking about combining auras as in you can select a second aura not adding new ones. also you want faction raids like pvp faction raids? on second thought... we have factions? i thought this was a hero and anti hero game. i dont recall seeing villains.
  13. Solarbound Committed Player

    Not the issue? It's a way deeper issue than you poorly realize. Wake up -_-

    Don't underestimate the power of PS4 its bigger than people realize and is absolutely no problem for PS5.

    I think less options but more detail would be cooler tho no? Most players just look like shiny blobs and some writing above their heads. And I'm on a 75" TV. Like I can barely make anything out on any character unless they're standing still and I'm on top of them. Just me??

    I think there is both love and dread for the idea of auras stacking - looks really cool, more visual noise, performance checks, etc.

    No I agree with the Mp being burried by the capsules, I'm saying the issue is not the TC, it's what is put in the TC, like auras and cosmetics should be put in the marketplace, while TC's should have more complex additions to gameplay like artifacts or something.
