    It's still an announcement though, everyone knows that Daybreak has been talking about upcoming graphics upgrades.

    Ah, so i was wrong.... good to know.

    A investors report is a official letter that does legally represent the studio, once you are in the stock market everything your parent company promises is your promise as well. However, nothing was promised, they didnt set a compromise on doing a graphics update, they only said it was scheduled, which means it can be delayed or canceled anytime. In the end it doesnt matter, it will either be done by 2023 or it wont.

    Your chart isn't accurate for 2022. The Sins of the Black Adam is the next episode... so we won't be getting a third episode this year.

    Its not because you create a doom fantasy that its true. EG7 purchased daybreak because of DCUO and H1Z1, it was a multi-million dollar deal for a multi-million dollar profit game, its unlikely going to just give up and drop the game like that. Plus, the game numbers were very solid last time we saw them. The studio went on a terrible rampage this year because they had a terrible CEO that took devs away with him to work on Epic's newest engines in his private studio.

    Once they overcone this we go back to normal, if they dont then its more of a game market issue than the company itself.

    Yes people need jobs. But they are not gonna hire people who aren’t qualified. You claim to want quality over quantity but want them to settle for less quality employees to pump out content?

    There’s a difference between a player taking a break after finishing everything they want to finish and players not playing. The people you describe as not playing aren’t not playing because they’re re unsatisfied with the game. They aren’t playing because they finished everything they want to.

    And it’s easier said than done to all content that’s different. What exactly would you do? You can claim that they could just do xyz but at the end of the day it’s basically the same thing

    Personally I'd be fine with a slower release schedule. This 6 month run for DK is only really 'boring' because it's more of the Dark Knights, which we've seen too much the last few years. But again, different storylines, locations, NPCs, enemies would all fall under the 'quality not quantity' aspect.

    i.e...did we need this seasonal? Yeah, it will be fun this year when it's 'new', but summer was one of the few times a year we had a break (Between Summer and Halloween) to either take a break...or double back on old stuff. rest for the wicked I guess.:(

    No ****. That's why Q3 is blank. We didn't get an episode for Q3.

    Except nowhere is there an official announcement or recent talk of a graphics update from any Daybreak employee.

    Nahhhhh, 6 months is too little content. This year we had SM to save the boat, but if it wasn't this new 6 players SM the game would be a wasteland right now... Unless they changed completely their schedules to do giant releases, but then we'd face the risk of having a ton of bugs or the same amount of content as we had with 3 releases.

    I guess it all depends on how you play. I might have agreed with you a year or 2 ago, when I'd hit all the newest content every day on multiple toons and work on feats right away (except elite....still not my crowd). But as I mentioned on another thread, I just hit my 12x on the 5 day missions in DK...that means I've only been down there 60x over 4 months on a single toon. I haven't gotten Barbatos done, I still have the rouges and Jailers to work on from the past 2 DLCs as I've just stopped playing as much. I don't even have the Hard Knocks in the new alert yet, because I haven't ran it in over a month since the new feats came out. Maybe this would be different if the content was more interesting, but it's not. Most times I fall asleep before I get that much done.

    Yeah, that's on me, but thats why I wouldn't also be in here complaining about nothing to do....I've spaced it out some by playing slower so I will have something to do...when I want to do it. And I used to be on about 6 hours every day finding something to do.

    I've always found it hilarious when people replay their way to 'max' the first few days...then complain they have nothing to do. I'm not sure if I've used a replay that was not for a feat since last year....what's the point? So you can be 'done' and NOT play the game? Ok...sounds good.

    Come on Lorax. Let's not sit here and pretend this isn't happening. SOMETHING is happening.

    Even before Panderus stated the above, I've been posting similar opinions, I'm sure you've been saying it, as have other resonable players - this isn't going to be an engine upgrade, this isn't going to be some miraculous makeover, this isn't going to be a major upgrade to the game we know. It'll just be some nice polish to the game we love. For all we know, the enhancement could simply be the PS5/Xbox Series native client (which will load faster, probably hit a higher display resolution, will perform better, have DualSense support, etc).

    If that's not enough for some players... well people, it's 2022. We're living in a golden age of gaming. Find something else that rocks your world. There are so many masterpieces out there that you've probably missed because of the DCUO grind. Take a break or call it if you're that upset about DCUO's direction.

    What you quoted is also NOT an announcement for a graphic update, it's damage control for a rumor that has gotten out of hand. Reread what Panderus said s l o w l y. "Please do not overhype or set expectations we have not clearly stated ourselves." That means do not read too much into second-hand information. "I want you all to be excited at the right time and at the right level when we can share details about anything in this regard." That means they have no details to share because there are no details to share. If a graphics update were in the works, much like the PS5 and XB Series X clients, they would have announced it. But they haven't announced a graphics update so it's safe to assume there isn't one or they have only discussed it and haven't actually planned it.

    If there is going to be an announcement for a graphics update that announcement will be made here, not in an investors briefing and not in a financial report...

    Any bets on how many recycled maps and character designs will be featured in the new episode?
  15. GermanM Committed Player

    I bet for Khandaq and the mummys from the Isis Solo (can´t remenber the name)
