    I mostly meant the open world bounty bosses in the older episodes. I’m fine with solos and duos to be honest.

    Opposition to stat clamp went from 50 likes 2 years ago - when it was still fresh and people were freaking out about the sky falling - to around 5 for the latest threads. Looks like 90% of anti-clampers got over it. Noice. :)

    Save it for someone who cares what you think.

    And.... Next time: Try to have a point.....
  8. GhostRyder3000 Dedicated Player

    Or maybe 90% of the anti-clampers left the game.....

    But... I guess, to you, that would be "noice", too....

    They did not get over it.

    They left the game. :(

    Just the first week of the Clamp... we lost roughly 30% of the players. :(

    Say what? Are you telling me that a vocal minority on the forums doesn't get to make decisions regarding game design? Mind blown...o_O But I though the clamp happened because of

    So, I guess we all agree now, that was BS? That's a valuable lesson to learn, especially for adults who should have known better. Stat clamp - a gift that keeps on giving. :D

    Even the first post that you replied to kinda had one.

    You're now 2 deep in replies to me and the closest thing you've come to one is "Nuh-uh... You"... which if your point was to prove that you write like a 4-year old child... then, yeah... Point.

    That is a guesstimation based on my Youtube numbers.... Dackman's seemed to confirm as much??...... and Chill too I thiink??
    Been a while so i don't recall exactly who i asked and who replied....
    but at the time I asked around and the more optimists guesstimated 20% to 25%.... less optimists 30% to 35%.... or more???

    I round it to 30% to keep the discussion simple.

    Now... we lose people allllllll the time.
    Numbers goes up and down depending on the season.... if we get a new DLC..... a new Event.... etc.

    But losing 30% in 1 week??? that was not good.

    Your views are not an indication of the population of the game… 30% is a bold statement without any proof at all. This is why so many players get misinformed about facts. The only ones with true number are the devs. There are actual ways to have an actual guesstimate on population size at a very minuscule range.

    Ok. As one of the anti-clamp who IS still you mind if I answer? (rhetorical I'm already answering).

    I have all but quit playing EEG content. When I do do something in EEG, it's either A) Solo, like the 3 runs for the omni box or my kind of 'solo' like running with 1-3 of my clones to maximize some drop...but even that I don't bother with most times. B) Jumping in for a bounty or 2 if I see it in LFG or C) For a very specific reason, one-off that is neither + or - due to the clamp. Example. I ran MOM raid on a toon that needed the Robin neck OP drop and to complete the M1 checklist and I saw someone shouting for 'need 1' to fill the group. It was a 30-40 min mindless run where no one really followed mechs except me and 1 other guy (ran the sword, dropped Ivy's shield, carried the metals) I might have as well have been running with 7 of my fillers if I could set them to a constant pew-pew-pew mode. Hella fun....right?

    I play the EG about 60% less too. I have lost most interest in worrying about SP or my artis or whatever...I've got enough of all that. The game is just a thing to kill a few hours a night and generally I use it to put me to sleep. Most times I queue in, as only 2 people I know remain steady in the game...only 1 of which is on most nights. Most importantly I've spent exactly 0 dollars on the game since Jan 30, and a year before that I had subbed for 1 month as well. That's $32 in over 2 years....great business model. I won't be subbing that Jan 2024 as the stabilizers are no longer in the monthly grant and that's the only thing I was subbing for those 2x. I'd guess DCUO has squeezed it's last nickel out of me at this point.

    I don't bother posting in most of the threads as I'm sure it won't be going anywhere till they lose enough population, or till EEG dries up to the point where people complain louder than I ever could. Not holding my breath for that to happen...but if it did...I'd do a little dance...sure. I'd guess more than a few are in the same boat. You can keep the EEG at this point....have fun.

    'Got over it'....well...if you mean the game in're spot on. I'm pretty well over it. I'm not posting this to be 'woe is me' or anything, but just pointing out, that while many people still might not like the clamp, there is almost no reason to run EEG if you've done it 'getting over it' is not really mind-numbing spams for SM. Is this general boredom with the game ALL about the clamp? No...not entirely. But some people DID leave...which added to that boredom, and where EEG used to be a fun distraction from the 3 episode EG 'keep current' grind, it's now just more grind. We had enough grind before the clamp....MORE didn't add to the overall fun for many.

    Uhh what? I literally merely pointed out the post had a lot of likes and you are trying to start some nonsense. I meant that when people come in the forums to vent and realize that devs don't react to their feedback and are only met with toxicity and people sitting on them and/it their ideas, thoughts, or views constantly, they tend to not want to come here anymore. That is why in Xbox I could never get people to agree to join the forums in the first place, because word of mouth travels fast in a small populated community. Those that did come, didn't stay long.

    Oh, or just quit.
