This still might be scam and i'm wary as a mf'er, but holy shit, if they pull this off...

You can tell they're making actual progress because the sad trolls who come into these threads to trash Roberts and Co. are strangely becoming more and more absent.

I'm still as skeptical as anyone, but you have to admit that procedural damage tech is very impressive, and to me, is finally something that's ACTUALLY next gen.

Let's hope they can keep this train rolling.

Oh? So because we're not gullible fanboys we're trolls? Almost 3 years at this point - more like 5 if you count pre-development stuff - and they have basically nothing to show for it so far. And now SQ42 has gone from 16 episodes to 5 and it will have been over 3 years at that point. 3 years for one episode. And you have the gall to call us trolls? Hahahahaha! Yeah smoke another bowl there guy. Let us trolls know when you come back down to reality. Lol fools and their money.


Ignore him Cutter,

Hes a fricking noob to these forums, so how the fuck would he know for those of us who have been tracking this game day one.

Even better you can look at the actual rankings on battle.net.

There isn't a single Barb in any of the top 100 groups 4 player groups. I didn't look beyond that but I'm sure that goes on for awhile down the list.

Barbarians suck in high end GR groups. They do ok solo.

They need to be tweaked to do better in groups.

Not sure why some of you are arguing over facts.

Exactly what I have trying to drive into these guys heads. Barbs suck, period! Solo dont mean shit when it comes to this games end game content.

Sorry, but you are full of shit. The Barb is horrible. The only classes anyone will play with are Monks, DH and WD's and Crusaders all other classes are considered worthless to the higher tier players. And monk's barley fall into that category, they are only useful as Palm Monks.

Sorry, buttercup, the facts don't lie:

Barbarian can do up to GR 50 just like all the other classes. Just because you fraternize with elitist min-maxing metagame assholes is no proof of a class being bad. Half DPS and half zDPS tank/control groups are popular because it allows a lot of people to participate in higher tiers than they'd otherwise be able to. There's less skill and quality gear required.

Exactly - there are some folks who just want to push GR as far as they can. In those groups and in that game mode, the only classes they want to use are the most optimal - DPS DH, CC/Buff Crusader, CC WD.

Here's another example - pet WD. Not the greatest build in the game, but very solid and can go reasonably far in GR. Pretty tanky, with solid crowd control, etc.

It COMPLETELY falls apart in speed T6 runs, however due to a lack of AOE burst damage (and really fast movement skills.) Some folks ONLY speed T6 runs, so for those people they think pet WD is horrible.

For one part of the content, they are notably mediocre to poor but for mid to upper GR, they are pretty decent.

I would never consider pet WD horrible (far from it), but they excel where Raekor barbs have issues (single target), and fail where Raekor barbs excel (movement speed and AOE.)

you guys are frcking delusional,, the ONLY way to do a 50 plus GRift is with a DH and a WD carries you ass all the way through it. I Really want to see you make a Video of your so called Awesome Barb and show me in a GR 40 plus taking on the GRift boss all by your lonesome self and lets see how long it takes you to kill that GRift boss.

And let me clue you in, the only way to level your gems is to do those high GFifts that are 45 and up. Good luck trying that crap at level 30 you wont be getting very far.

And please don't tell me otherwise, I play with my Brother who plays this game non stop and is well over level 700 on the paragon levels. And we see it all the time, no one wants to take Barbs on the Greater Rift runs over level 35.

Sorry to tell you otherwise, but Raekor's barbs are pretty darn good. They are in fact the fastest T6 clearer in the game and are really good in GR. The reason no one wants to take them is the most damage done in the game is Demon Hunter's BY FAR, so Barb just didn't fill any role in higher GR. Nor does Monk, Wizard, or any DPS Crusader or WD.

The roles are 2 DPS DHs, one CC/buff Crusader, and one CC Witch Doctor. Until other classes can match the dps of DHs or the CC/buffing of the two best support classes, it's going to remain that way if you want a really good high level GR group, unfortunately.

Sorry, but you are full of shit. The Barb is horrible. The only classes anyone will play with are Monks, DH and WD's and Crusaders all other classes are considered worthless to the higher tier players. And monk's barley fall into that category, they are only useful as Palm Monks.

Raekor's barbs are the fastest solo T6 clearer in the game. T6 is still a great way to acquire gear. I will certainly grant you, that a Raekor's barb is not particular welcome in many groups simply because they are so ridiculously fast, it makes most other classes feel like they are not contributing.

Where Barbs are not needed is in the highest level of GRs where it requires a coordinated team of roles, but like I said most other classes/builds aren't used there either except for 3 specific builds.

So my point is simply that you are using one metric - higher GR, to decide that "The Barb is horrible." This metric is not even the best way to acquire gear (far from it) - it is simply the most difficult content for leaderboards. So if you consider Diablo a loot gathering game (which it is), the Barb excels at it. He's just not particularly group friendly.

And I'm not sure where you are getting Palm monks from - EP was basically removed out of contention when they got rid of it scaling from monster health, unless you are talking about the current PTR, where it is making a comeback.

OK, keep telling yourself that while you are sitting on the sidelines when no one will take on on the higher Rift runs.


Yes, he can SOLO. lets make that clear and say it in slow motion. SOLOOOOOO!!! but that's about all he's worth. He cant kill Single Target Rift bosses very well when it comes to the much higher Rifts. he lack DPS. He can not keep up wit many of the other classes. So rant all you want about how great he is and keep living In that delusional realm you seem to like. because the reality is he's still worthless at the end of the day.

I don't get the WOW comparison. Other than the skill trees. Which I hate. Still love the game(now that it's fixed).

I see some of the WoW aspect in D3. Its defiantly there.

Speaking of the Barbarian, its out right shameful how Blizz has destroyed this once beloved character. Cant DPS for shit, and his survivabilty on the front line is disgusting compared to the other classes. And Blizz for some odd reason refuses to fix the Barb.

If it is just those skills that offer complete invulnerability, I don't see any issue with this. It's not like they're applying it to Akarat's Champion, and completely fucking over the majority of Crusader builds.

Ill just say this, I have played every class, and have some really good geared toons. I never once saw where I was invulnerable for any long length of time. No Idea where that's coming from. I have had my ass handed to me more times then I can count.

20-25GB for a patch? If you have a strict bandwidth cap, I'm guessing your language selection will be salty.

The patch is actually only a little over 5 GB in size, once expanded its takes up around 20 to 25 GB.

You still need to purchase a boxed copy of the game to get an account key.

Im not sure that will be necessary once it goes F2P. Thats the whole point of F2P. Now, those who do own a copy with a key once it does go free, will have higher tier access to things within the game whereas someone who is coming in first time and free will usually have more stipulations on what you can and cant do.

Are there any reputable key purchasing sites anyone can suggest to get a cheap account key?

Wait a few more weeks, the game goes free to play on the 12th I believe.

If anyone has installed this new ESO patch, it was massive. Its basically an over haul of the entire game. I was playing around with it last night and its a really nice patch. There are so many new things you can do now like pick pocketing citizens and murdering them to in town.

Also, all of the skills and powers have been re done.

XBatmanX if you see this please message me, I need to talk to you about the Guild in game. I need Officer status please.

Read the patch notes, its a pretty amazing patch.

The New DAI patch that adds Mouse Toggle support is really nice to. Check it out guys!

Happier still if they stopped using highly-modified GameByro and shifted to <insert modern engine here>.

Oh, hell no! I want city action, underground complexes, Subways and Military bases. Along with an entire underground system to travel through. that was the one very appealing thing for m about Fallout 3. I just love being underground like that and having a topside to run around too. Fallout 4 was very lacking in this area. I totally lost interest after about 50 hours in.

Why is a Tracy Hickman novel a stretch goal - and a 50k one at that? It's like so many people propose the weirdest stetch goals. At the very least, make it the last one AFTER all the other add-ons for more gameplay are met.

I have to agree about that stretch goal there. I was scratching me head in bewilderment. They should have added a few more items to that goal at the very least. And I would hardly call it barely making it with 6 days left. the final days is when these things really take off. Id imagine its going to make at least two of the goals before ending.
