Update 2.5 - Official Discussion Thread



  • avelardezavelardez Member Posts: 1,341
    Healing cost and time reduction is still in need of fixing. It only appears that we save one gold from 25 to 24 and just two minutes of time from 2 hrs 15 mins to 2 hrs 13 mins. Can we get better results.

    the update just compounds the grind. ng are doing all they can to make the game harder for players. there is a blinkered and arrogant attitude at the dev that disregards player feedback. walker strength increase is last straw and i've a bug post about my costly assault is now nerfed. that's another problem. ng takes your money and then changes goal posts constantly. this 'we have a right to change' is nonestance. what about our consumer rights?

    Guys, i have unistalled this boring game a week ago. Such a relief, try it too ...

    Another thing is the cost in xp of fighters and weapons. The farms never went up but cost 2 million a plot. The XP tent not sure yet. Have not got to it. But the increase cost and lack of production is not good.

    Why does NG always overkill?
    More health walkers, higher start in challenge, less extra rounds + longer hospital times at high RSL. Don't think people will be complaining about the length of the challenge anymore...

    Makes me think about the time they fixed bullet-dodge, nerfed luck and made dodge weak for criticals. Ninja dodge in outpost did stop after that...

    Why do they always exaggerate?

    When releasing notes for updates, we like to add as much detail as possible. The key word though, is balance. All these changes have been made in order to create a better gaming experience. Please do let us know how you feel about these changes once they've gone live (hopefully very soon).
    Buffing melee and walkers was actually a nerf to ranged.
    Also to my scout, I'm missing some one-hit kills.
    I'm glad warrior got a little stronger, but overal...

    We went backwards in potential.
    That is never fun...

    Or to Quote someone else on forum:

    It feels like you do when your water bill goes up yet again and you have to pay it anyway.

    Please next time: only buff those melee, don't touch walkers...

    I'm ok with the shorter challenge. I can reach my desired stars without pushing it, so that's nice. I like the new challenge maps too.
    Hospital times are alright.

    It ain't all bad, but not exited about the manner of balancing.
    And offended by the way it was presented(as buffing, when actually nerfing).

    NG has this strange habit of being AI friendly rather than player friendly. Nerfing the survivors and buffing up the freemen and zombies.

    The challenge 2.0 was one of the best additions to the game. However, they messed it up by tweaking it in 2.5 to start one level higher with no improvement in the rewards. The 2.5 update was short of a fiasco.

    Lets hope NG takes care of these issues in the next update

    What is wrong with this team, if they have to shoot all three at a usual level 23 walker to take him out?

    Hey @Warlord, thanks for your thorough and well thought-out feedback.

    I'd like to remind everyone that all official communication can be found in Announcements, where we update maintenance status. (Example from 2.4:) Maintenance Notice The "Known Issues" list is indeed good practice, but we verify issues before adding all incoming reports to a list only to debunk them later. Especially when lots of non-issues are reported immediately after an update.
  • WarlordWarlord Member Posts: 166
    @teeceezy Thanks for the response. Better update notes will eliminate a lot of those "non-issues" from being reported. Even if not verified, they should still be communicated as someone may have the proof (screen shots, vids, etc.) need more readily available to verify it then you can, especially if there are a lot of issues. And from professional experience, not everything that happens in a production environment can be verified in a test environment. Server settings, network settings, and a host of other things could potentially cause issues in one environment and not the other. Just mark them as "unverified" or "unverified - need screens shots/vids if someone has them". If they turn out to be a lack of understanding of how the game functions, then post "works as expected" with an explanation of what it does and why. It helps us all to better understand and builds a level of trust between NG and us players.

    Right now, when updates come out, I feel like I'm watching a game with all the rules known to NG and only half of them known to us players so every little thing gets questioned since we don't know if something is working correctly or not. Trust me, more details to your end user community about changes can eliminate a lot of work on your end for chasing down concerns/complaints/questions where if more info was provided up front, they wouldn't arise.

    @warlord you are now my new hero. Bye bye Spiderman!

    As for my feel on this update... i won't even go throught the painfull release: it is now over and done. My feelings are, except for the new challenge maps, all got worse. I am having less fun. I could do all 3 rounds of RSL 25 missions with my ranged team and even go into 26s. Now the 26s are just too expensive: time and gold. And imdo have decent L24 gear now for my A team.

    I do not see myself playing this game much longer things don't improve. If it was not for the little guild i lead, i think i would stop now. It just feels that i invest time and yes money to get to a good place, only to have NGs release an upgrade and mess everything up, somi have to grind like a maniac to get to where i was before. This may work on the short and medium run, but not the long run.

    I do realise it would be impossible for NGs to please everybody, but are they pleasing anybody on the maxed or close to that player base?

    It looks like I'd have to build the Outpost to hit level 59. There's no other way? I hate PvP with a passion. I don't want to give up my favourite game :(

    Where is the problem? You don´t have to play outposts ;)

    You pay 100 gold and all your guild mates will receive a golden crate...

    Why are raids now worth so few influence points and you lose so many more influence points if you lose the mission? It's worth 10 but if you lose, you lose 24!!! Before the update, I had some worth up to 55, now, nearly every single time, they're only worth 10, the most I've seen is 18, one time. You can't gauge the difficulty of the players anymore because of this. Makes raids completely frustrating and not worth it.
