    Wow, so many fixes with this update, addressing so many flaws that have been in the game for years! Someone has finally gone back and definitely went the whole 9 yards to finally address many of the fundamental flaws all of the old content had.

    Just reading the patch notes, this is by far one of the most promising updates for the games longevity and quality. Of course, notes do not mean anything if what is executed is done poorly - Good luck DBG! This looks promising, I can hardly wait.

    Yup. Big and MUCH NEEDED. I just hope they don't rush the testing process. They need to test, test and test again. On an update this big their is a reap potential for a lot of issues upon release. Take your time guys!

    lol well at least for the PvE content. Now if PvP can get some love I would drop all other games and try to get back into full DCUO action. :p

    The thing I was most excited about was stat normalization. How long have stats been out of whack between tiers for? 2 years now?

    Leveling up a toon recently has just been comical, as I went from 4000 health and 1000 precision to 11000 health and 3000 precision in like a week as I went from T5 to T6. It was at the point where we could solo entire chunks of content from the same tier because the progression during a tier was astronomical.

  8. Rhinosus13 Loyal Player

    My biggest concern is any changes on the Villain side
    Alot of stuff goes untested or barely tested :(
  9. Sage-Rapha Steadfast Player

    PvP is much better on test right now.
    However, there are still some bugs to iron out.

    Be careful what you wish for, you might get it. And when I say that, I mean that you will be playing the game by yourself. This "Stat Normalization" as you call it, will kill the game for a lot of people. You feel like the game is too easy? Put on old armor. Now tell me it is too easy.

    If I am CR 113, I better be able to beat FoS, on my own. If I am CR 53, then I want help. If you like it, run raids naked.

    Yep with t7 gear I should be able to solo pw. If not I'm gonna be mad.

    With stat flattening its like having superman getting killed by a random store robber. Its as dumb as it sounds.

    Will this mean that my cr 113 God status will be demoted to legends superman status cuz at cr 113 we are pretty much invincible(not counting new t6)
  13. Crimson Mayhem Loyal Player

    There is a lot of changes and fixes in this update that have been needed for years, it's like another christmas really. Stat flattening, Defense scaling and Armor Penetration removal, Power cost scaling, Percentage based Tac mods, classic weapon combos buffed, Pet AM buff, heck they even buffed freaking Weaponization and removed the knockbacks from ARC! This is more than I could have dreamed of.
    Yet there IS issues with the stat flattening and new marks system, especially when both are combined. The massive uproar today is evidence of that. I hope this update doesn't go live like it is right now. It could be the best update since EVER if these issues are fixed or handled better in some way.

    Stat normalization is good for the game without question. We should never be 1 shotting adds by ourselves in content 1 tier below ours. The stat increases from T4 to T5 to T6 have been crazy, even from DLC to DLC. It's been climbing at an insane rate for too long and it's about time we get some sort of linear progression instead of the astronomical increases we've been getting every 3 months.

    That being said, the extent it is currently being taken to is kind of absurd, particularly considering the rewards for running older content. No raid should ever be as easily soloed as they currently are, no matter the tier, but the current build on test appears to show stats having almost no effect on even the lowest content and that is bad. We should be able to stomp older content as we gear up, but it looks like we not only require a raid group for even the lowest tier of raids, but that it will almost take as long as it did within the tier. Now I know I want content to be closer instead of the 1 shot show we have now, but not to this extent. The "just wear old armor" argument is silly. Nobody should be able to solo raids, and especially not ones a single tier below ours. It's the dumbest thing in game currently and it's a good thing it's changing.

    The stat normalization to this extent is silly, but it is undoubtedly a good thing for the players and the game in general.

    let me get this straight the old contents are the new end game contents? Coz everybody knows this game has the shittiest tutorial ever. Basically players from cr 30-75 only knows one role that's dps and they have no idea how important sp are in the game. It's gonna be frustrating as hell trying to finish Sunstone matrix after this new update not to mention there's little to no reward from it. Feels like we're marching backwards -.-

    U say about time and i ask why? I dont understand the need to blow things up and have drastic changes about every 6 months. It screams instability to me and shows me they are unsure about things. It also shows that when they 1rst implement an idea they dont think it through very well and later down the road have to make changes. Imo thats not a good thing. Im guessing in about 6 months or so down the road there will be more changes to fix what didnt work with this update. Im really not sure how they dont take things for the future into account and have any kind of foresight. It gets really annoying having to change the way u play and relearn some things every 6-12 months. None of any of the recent changes tell me things are stable.

    I disagree on soloing raids comment. Of course not 1 tier below but if im t6/t7 and cant solo fos3 which is 4 tiers below me? Cmon now. We are about to hit t7 and that means fos3 which is t3 is pretty much the halfway point. That means my toon would be twice as strong as it was when that raid was current and i cant solo it? That doesnt sound right to me. I agree stats were way outta control. They can adjust that in fact some of us have been speaking about it for a long time and idky it took so long to address power creep. LnW right now feels like a t4 raid to me and my league and its 1 dlc behind. Same with LD, we did it in 8mins the other day and its in the same tier, thats crazy. THAT does need adjusting. But 2,3,4 tiers below? Nah we should be able to solo that stuff if we want to.

    People are so focused on an issue that Mepps has said is not intended and are overlooking this great new direction we are headed.

    Such a big update, so much to look forward to!

    Heck, yeah...I am clueless why players want tired and old content to be a long tedious goal is to constantly work at making old raids go faster...that is my challenge ...a 5 min solo for 3 run equals success...and finally...why all the hate if we top tiered players can solo stuff how are we hurting the game by leveling up new players...yeah we can help out our friends but those are people that want to get by the old and get to the new. How is use running raids hurting groups of new players who want to learn the hard way.
    Btw I always liked help when I stated and many people are here on the forums to get help...just saying

    I personally dont mind this but to the extent that a CR124 gets KO'd before killing 1 add in batcave? that to me is a tad extreme and nobody can argue that isnt extreme.
