    My only question is the same as a lot of peoples and I hope the devs address it. Will they go back now and reduce the super charge costs that they raised because of the eog exploit? It only seems fair that that revert them back

    Wow what crazy to me is how many people are ok with. it is the same couple of forum users telling everyone they are the cry babies and that the try hard for elite are right. So are we supposed to be happy that we had a Ferrari we paid for and are now giving us a ford Escort now for are same buck. Most of this community has paid for arts and if you did not congratulations but stop defending this shady move on dc part. And no most people did not know that they was nurfing eog greens to less the 1/3 of current eog i went and told 4 of the league's I was in and none knew about it and everyone that has it are upset to. Again people on this forums are a small part of the community and you nurf one of the top 3 artifacts in the game. I mean when a new player comes to the game and ask what arts to use most said transformation card,strategists card and eye of Gemini and solar amplifier for single. What get to me is only a small group of people beat elite pluse or critical the right way most are using speed hackers the get those feats

    I don't really have a say to this, but I couldn't resist after reading the OP post.

    Yeah, my point was that IF the design took into effect the ability to use SCs back to back, unless something else facilitates that (like some new arti/ally) it won't be possible. Sure something else might become the new cheese, but DPS's losing the ability to fire SCs (or multiple) at will is a big change to compensate for.

    And yeah...good question on the Nature transformations.

    I have to fight with my phone to type nerfing it keeps trying to change it so I gave up. I have a 2 year old at home and he loves nurf guns and swords so I am constantly by nurf ammo lol

    I didn't have the luxury of getting Nerf guns when I was a kid. Dad didn't want to spend on things that will undoubtedly break something in the house. We did get a rubber band shooter though, so I don't know what he was thinking. Maybe it's just price of the name that he didn't want. lol

    There was no real malice from my post, btw. I just thought it was a funny play on words. "Nerf or nuffing?" Like the spelling for it.

    Who cares what other people do. Is the change better for the game and engaging gameplay? Yes.

    Good dev teams strive to continually make improvements to gameplay to keep it fair and engaging…which should be applauded.

    But you are absolutely free to Q.Q about it here :)

    So, is it "many" people that are ok with it, or "a couple"?

    We're supposed to accept that the Ferraris we had were ruining the environment and now we will have to ride in sh*tty little electric cars.

    Oh, OK, Your Holiness, The Pope Of This Community. If you paid for it years ago - you got your money's worth. If you just paid for it... Unlucky.

    Players on the forums don't make decisions about game design. But if that's what you think - you and your leaguemates should just ask on the forums for EoG to be OP again. Surely - if you're on the forums, the devs grant you wishes... :)

    Except that everyone knows that people don't come to a forum to express themselves anymore because they know that it's a loss of listening because of a big lack of listening from the studios. That's why nowadays, the forum are so little frequented and also without forgetting that DCUO has a big console community and the console players really don't frequent the forums, because they are not easily accessible, but go to the leagues and you'll see that the complaints are found without in conversation between league members.

    My feedback was shot down and it’s clear that the bad players are so happy about making it a useless artifact. All that needed to alter was making the EoG damage explosion act the same as an orbital etc that would make it not stack into the next EoG and keep a balanced effect. But the bad players don’t want balance such as yourself

    I just wanted to say, I actually like Ford Escorts.

    Seems like the 'bad' players are the ones that would be 100% reliant on a broken, out of whack, overused artifact.

    Although I'd actually agree that the changes could have come to a middle ground between where we were and where we are going...and until the changes hit live, I'd say you can keep making suggestions.

    However in this thread it seems like more ranting and defending than constructive suggestions. I'd say testing feedback section would be a better place for actual suggestions.

    Oh....Ford Escorts. I thought we were getting another kind of 'escort'.....according to google, they are in my area right now.

    Well now I'm disappointed.o_O

    Oh I suppose, about the EOG, it's probably needed adjusting for a while, is the adjustment to much? Don't know, guess we'll find out.

    I'm not as worried about the artifact as I am the influence it may have had on content more widely that might need to get adjusted because of the influence of an over performing artifact.

    I sympathize with the frustration involved with having something nerfed that you've been enjoying, but it's probably needed adjusting for a while and to be fair I think most players have probably known this likelihood has probably been on the horizon for at least 12 months now.

    Is what it is, like I say my concern is more about how it shakes out for content rather than the artifact, it could just mean burn check feats and a few things need adjustment, as long as that's considered at least then it bothers me less.

    I've never personally been a big user of EOG, it spends most of its time in my inventory :D

    I actually drove a Ford Escort in high school. Not my favorite car. Was happy when we traded it in for a Ford Ranger truck, manual transmission.

    I was going to say "stick shift" above, but I saw your post and thought that might continue the confusion.

    Love manual transmissions, so many cars are being changed into auto transmissions now days with far less manuals around, kids these days aren't even capable of driving them :D

    yes ...manual transmissions ... although, yes, young people no longer know how to manage it ... or did you not mean that, but these newfangled iron carts? ;)

    This one is not factually correct. It wasn’t nerfed because “the bad players” were abusing it. It was because the players who actually knew how to min max it were causing burn checks to be that much faster. These same players were also using it for get past dps check mechanics and speed feats that much faster.

    And so you finish off by saying bad players “like me” don’t want balance”. Tell me exactly how this art was balanced?

    And no it’s not useless. If you actually tested things and were as good as you think you are maybe you’d see that it would still have a place. You’re assuming it is an all or nothing. Players will still want SC regen. Unless they removed the sc regen all together they won’t actually stop asking for EoG healers.
