    These are just a few ideas nothing more;

    - Increase the CR again for stats clamping
    - Have stats as an option on/off button
    - Include the bonus in the monthly sub going back to old content whilst being max cr.
    - Remove source marks and allow us only get styles and feats.

    Anyone else got ideas? dev's to consider?

    thanks

    Or you could just, you know, deal with it.

    kinda sorta what willflynne said. I'm no fan of the clamp, but I don't see it going away any time soon. you'll get some adjustments down the line, I should imagine, but it's here, now, & you're either gonna have to get used to it, or - like me - just have nothing to do with & confine your interests to endgame & open world stuff.

    Bonus week where they just flip it off and forget how to turn it back on.

    All of these "Alternatives" go counter to what they (the Devs) want/need at this time...which means your suggestions aren't viable. If there is any specific issues with any particular content, they are more than willing to look into it and make adjustments. Otherwise, what you're asking for is not likely to happen in the foreseeable future.

    It's not what you want to hear at all...but it's the reality we all have to sit with for the time being.

    I solved the stat clamp problem by switching to never playing clamped content

    If +15 Cr with stat bleed isnt enough, maybe you need to improve.

    Yup. There's literally no reason not to offer an option to go unclamped.

    These threads are being created by people that can't block on a skull, do you expect the 15 CR's are going to help them? :3

    I keep hearing about these horror shows, but i honestly dont really see them. Im league-less so im not sheltered from running with the general community. If anything ive seen the communities patience overall go up.

    I would definitely avoid trying to speak for the devs.

    I would love if they increased the CR by atleast 15-30 more for episode content (excluding the open world). I like the idea of the stat clamp I just wish I felt slightly stronger in older content.

    I think for the open worlds the clamp should either be removed or the CR should be increased by a lot more. It's extremely tiresome and difficult to do the open world bounty quests. And sometimes getting a group to help in chaos gotham for example is not possible. I really want to experience all the open worlds but there's no one in them ever, and it makes it really hard to do anything.

    They don’t NEED anything. You and no one is entitled to getting all all feats. Feats are things you work towards. Is some feats are unobtainable than you either have to love on or try to find different ways to improve. It’s funny. People always say they want options but what they really mean is they want other options that let them get things without working for them.

    You either do things clamped for rewards/feats or you do things unclamped for 0 rewards. And yes feats are considered rewards. The clamp already has a large amount of stats piercing and the cr Grace zone has been adjusted numerous times.

    I don't bother doing Omnibus stuff so I don't worry too much about the stat clamp, but the only change I would actually like to see would be for us to retain our CR when we go back to older open worlds.

    I kinda miss going back to old areas, hugely over-levelled, to beat up bosses that used to be super tough back in the day. It was also a good way of testing new builds (can this tank build survive against Doomsday or Brine Hulk etc...)

    Its pretty easy with +15, more on top of stat bleeding is just re-trivializing the thing they are trying not to re-trivialize lol

    Then lets quote them.
    Also isnt this you post speaking for the developers on their old game philosophy?
    https://forums.daybreakgames.com/dc...stat-clamp-choice.320225/page-24#post-4474621

    This you?

    "From the go, the philosophy of this game and progression has been-- "revisit old feats down the road if they're to much trouble now, eventually, over time, you should be able to tackle them." Look no further than pre-clamp groups struggling with DWF feats, CTE feats, MOME feats than to see that obviously, simply gearing past wasn't "trivializing" these feats"

    Outgearing content to go back to it, IS trivializing it...
