    Dev's trying to encourage running with 2 of every role?

    I thought they gave up it now I read they actually have a mechanic that would encourage it.

    This is gonna be fun.

    I wonder if it is going to be another totd with people trying to find ways around it.

    Using debuff on the players is an OK idea, kind of wish NPC's debuffs and buffs worked like that, but then again so many trolls would probably be exposed.

    They still need to run it though.

    Wait what!?! I need a dictionary here....lemmm....meee see......(flips to D)......nope can’t find it. The word ‘debuff’ and ‘double role’ are not found.

    Maybe try using synonyms and see if that helps. Having one of each support role is the norm and anything but the norm is not dcuo.

    I am surprised by this because it is not the norm.

    But it was written here;

    Must've been a typo is what I thought initially or someone bumped their head.

    No wonder people are already thinking it is going to be difficult.

    People have been 5 1 1 1 ing so much we have to make threads asking how people feel about playing what was supposed to be standard?

    Surprised is all I once asked about this and the response I was given was they basically caved and we're not aiming for this.

    Don't get me wrong I welcome this should have been the focus all along.

    I will say I am reserved as to how the community respond to this though, the game has been lacking content like this for far to long.

    Yea should be interesting, wait for the slow burn when the bad DPS players get exposed when they can't be carried :cool:

    Although I somehow suspect it's not going to be that bad.

    hello, i've been playing this game for a long time and that's why so many base items have accumulated. The bases in this game are just too small and limited to a certain number. I have a suggestion, why do not you offer bases in large venetian size for DB. I and I know a lot of other players would also like to pay for it with DB. why do not you offer something like that?

    Jesus now it's going to take twice as long just looking for a backup troll.

    Hopefully you kid.
    TBH I'm happy even though I suspect the whining of the forumites will eventually lead to a nerf

    There is already someone stating that melee DPS are dying by a boss. Now maybe he's asking for a skull symbol on the attack, but damn it's a boss. It should kill squishy melee players

    I just hope they don't nerf it.

    It looks like them artifacts and all them stats will play a big role.

    I may be naive though will see.

    Just FYI, people only asked for DWF to be nerfed because it was still ridiculous even with two tanks and two healers. If this new raid becomes as manageable as other current raids once you have those extra roles, there *shouldn’t* be any drama. If there is, I’ll back you all up in telling them to put a sock in it, I might not like high difficulty but still would like to see more support role involvement in DCUO.

    They better not nerf anything. I'm sick of people expecting top end gear to be handed to them via easy content

    Easy is relative ;)

    Ok let me rephrase that.

    Content that a very small minority struggles with.

    This right here is sadly a good possibility because heaven forbid we don't have 5 or 6 DPS blasting away at anything that moves... Surprises me some times they don't start shooting at each other. I can remember the good old day when every team had 2 healers an 2 trolls ( and we'd ACTUALLY talk to each other to determine who had the highest Vit so that troll did POT while the other did Debuffs) and while we didn't always have 2 tanks we always had at least 1.

    Back in those days there were players that never even bothered to grab any DPS armor.. they were Healers, tanks or trolls. Now the norm if a player even bothers with the support side is you need 2 sets of gear. I have seen a bit of a change lately. I've been on duos with players that only had troll of healer gear.... Sadly I'm not exactly sure how good some of them are at those roles. I had a troll the other day on a duo that was great I never ran out of power and he was obviously debuffing because mobs were dropping in no time. On the other hand I did a duo last night with a healer.. No real problems on the mission but when it was over and the scoreboard popped I had done a lot more damage.. which I figures I would but then I scanned over and some how I had also pumped out more healing just using sodas that the HEALER did. By that time he'd already left so i didn't get a chance to inspect his gear but I am betting he had more DPS gear than Healer and if he even had any more Mods geared toward damage out than healing out....... Seen a few of those these days.

    If I sacrifice being a dps to tank troll and heal for bad dps, then others can too.

    Well I got rid of all my DPS gear, until I started messing with my battle troll armory.

    I never really followed the norms, I am a horrible DPS player, for 6 years I may have only DPS 4 or 5 raids and roughly 6 - 7 solos, and probably 1 to 2 alerts.

    I have always believed that each of us can play the way we choose as long as it does not hinder others.
  19. TechWarrior0329 Steadfast Player

    Controller was always my favorite as well and when i first started it was my main and like you basically the ONLY set of gear I used. Sadly then we had the whole onset of the 5-1-1-1 and 6-1-1 mentality and trying to get on a team as support became a chore. THEN we started the whole monthly content era and if you remember that whole BS period where "If you are not in DPS mode you have no business on a duo.. I am just carrying you" and many players took that nonsense to heart and would walk out on you if you had the nerve to show your face on a duo as a tank, troll or healer. At this point all my alts have a full set of gear for both roles to make the masses happy.

    Remember the BEST part about that whole thing? So you'd join a team and head into an alert with nothing but 4 DPS. then get to that final boss battle and wipe. I had this happen on an Intergang alert. SO now we are discussing the fact that we need a tank or a healer and we will be just fine. Now my DPS had a full set of support gear but I was on a power set that had Control as the support option. Had 2 using powers sets that could heal and the third could tank BUT not a single one of them had a single piece of support armor. Finally the one guy offered to quit because it was getting close to time for him to log off and get ready to head to his real life job. We managed to find a healer and finished up. I loved that though DPS were on there screaming about how the support players needed to BUY that 2nd armory, Take the time to acquire two full sets of gear. Mod that gear and set up their SP for both types but it was perfectly okay for them to ONLY have DPS gear. Of course I have played with a few DPS that decided to TRY a support role.. Not every player is cut out to even try being a support player LOL

    A larger base would be awesome. So much more I could do with the RunfromDanger-Cave if it were larger.
    But more bases would be good too.
    To solve the base item problem is it possible to not have a limit to the decorations in a cave. That way we can all have a Hall of Random Crap with the base items we will never use.
