News Comments > WoW 10th Anniversary Plans

That mount will be useless, if its not a flying mount. No one will ever use it. Flying is the only way to travel in the game now. Its going to be interesting to see just how many raids are really put together and how long until no one is able to do the dungeon because of the lack of finding enough people to do 40 mans.

This is why Blizz removed 40 mans to begin with, it was to hard to get 40 people together at one time. I just don't see this working out very well in the long run.

I haven't played this in a while, but did the developers ever go back on their whole "permanent item damage/repair pool" thing with gear?

I remember that being a big bone of contention with various players and the developers being very stubborn about that "feature." A bunch of friends and I uninstalled the game since that felt like an artificial gimmick which forced players to endlessly grind and craft (ie. Thump) to stimulate the bare-bones AH economy since our gear was constantly damaged and would eventually be completely broken. Plus the whole developer attitude of, "deal with it, we're a small studio and can't constantly put out new content to stimulate the economy" was off-putting.

I played this for the first time last night to check it out. Over all I didn't think it was a bad game. I liked it way more then Wildstar. and yes, your gear does need repairing. I was disappointed to see that.

So, what was going on with this that pissed everyone off?

But selling your soul to scammer steam for a few buks , thats not a problem , as long as one earns money there is no problemo i guess.

I have no idea what you are talking about. How is steam scamming anyone? I have never had any issues from steam, nor have they just dumped their customers on another service and said, fuck you for all the games you bought from us over the years and then game fly says, yep fuck you we are not honoring those games you bought.

So, if you can compare steam to that, then, and only then will I believe that crap your spewing.

Ok, for once I'm not going to ask for pictures.



That's OK, we all have our little fetishes. Sometimes I wear high heels under my Dark Robes of Power. Mrs. Sauron rather likes it. Variety is the spice of life!


That's the great thing about living here in San Diego, its very close by to go to. My Son has a week long pass, he will be there the entire week.

Victim victim!

Also, the claim of "KS won't tell us what we did wrong" sounds like a huge fucking lie.


Yep, don't do it, stay away from their site.

Bunch of persisting asses though, that's for sure.

Yet more lies...

Our Kickstarter was suspended without any warning. As per Kickstarter's policy, we cannot contact them to find out why.

Gee, I don't know, I think it was because you're cheating motherfuckers...

LOL!! You said nin. May these guys all burn in eternal fire.

So glad KS pulled the plug on these assholes.

As well know, there's no such thing as heavily scripted E3 videos or anything right? I mean just look at Watch Dogs.

Yes you are right. but I have a very good friend who works at Bioware, and he told me that every bit of that video is actual game play. nothing scripted. And yes, I saw this at E3.

I played PAYDAY 2 once, by myself, on a free via Steam weekend. It was some mission where I had to go in to a mall and smash stuff. Then cops started showing up in endless waves, leading to a ridiculous, never-ending firefight. I think the problem was I just didnít really know how to accomplish my goal, and also the AI team mates werenít overly competent. So it was a mediocre play session, and I gave up on it.

That's the problem I have with this game. The endless spawning on Police. After you have completed a mission, you feel like you just wiped out the full police force for the city.

And offensively, calling out people they don't like (folks that, when you check their profiles, you see they've backed a number of projects) and linking to their profiles.

I think I gave up once they reached their $ goal, but I'm back to fighting now. Fuck these guys!

I pulled out of this one two weeks ago after it start spiraling out of control and you could clearly see these ass clowns were lying out of their ass about everything.

I personally don't understand why KickStarter hasn't given these guys the boot already and shut them down. All this is doing is making them look really bad because they don't seem to care if someone is trying to scam the public.

If they do happen to get away with this, this one is going to have long term repercussions on Kickstarter as a whole. No one is going to trust them because they seemingly either don't care or don't have control of their own site.

Uh... it looks like it was ONE pledge... in the 10k or more bracket.

It was either one of them or one of their friends.... they'll get their money back plus the scammers get to split the 35k or so (minus kickstarter's take)


I doubt they will get anything, people are just waiting till the last day to pull their funding. And as for their so called President funding this game. Yea right, the Russians have way more to be concerned about right now then funding a game especially after its now coming out that the Russian's may have had something to do with the civilian airliner being shot down. Wars coming, and the Russians know they fucked up.

So, they increase the weapon damg by 23/26 percent, but Crusaders get jacked off because they nerf Heavenly Strength, okay Blizz that really makes a whole lot of sense. Nothing like getting a dick tease.

Crusaders are insanely strong already with 4+ viable T6 core build and good equipment. Heavenly Strength needs the reduction or it would have just come out of flails instead. No one likes it when their class doesn't get buffed while others do but Crusaders are already top end and desirable in parties.

Sorry Redmask, but either you don't play much D3 or you don't know what your talking about. the Crusader is an okay at best class for DPS. If you want to talk about a class that's insanely OP. lets talk about he WD. My brother plays one and he annihilates everything on the map. he solos T6. One shots Elites like there's no tomorrow. I can't do that with my Crusader and I'm pushing 1.9 Million DPS buffed.

This is the problem wit the Melee classes. they do not do the insane DPS that WD and Mages do. my brothers WD is doing crits of a Billion.

And BTW, look at my profile they only way I'm capable of doing that kind of DPS is because of the weapon I'm using. without that weapon, my DPS sucks. The Fate Flails is a very rare drop and it changes the skill you use to make it a shotgun type blast in from of you allowing you to do that type of DPS.

This build can get you into trouble to if you are not geared properly because you run out of Wrath very quickly. which also requires you to have the Akkaan set or this build is no good.

Well, I play one. and from what I can tell the Crusader because of the change to Heavenly Strength has been turned down. we are not getting the full 23 percent dps increase as the others are. the problem Blizz keeps over looking and what everyone is bitching about is Barbs having the ability to dual wield getting a max of 8 stats because of the two weapons. many are saying that 2HD weapons should get either more stats added, or give us a second socket to try and off set the dps loss we are loosing.

here's my char.

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/dark-1182/hero/43548956

So Blizzard said they are across the board buffing 2 handed weapons by 23-26%, but this does not apply to Crusader weapons? It has flail right there in the list (?)

Yes, they are but the problem is they are changing Heavenly Strength. They nerfed it. so now we will only get a slight increase. Its like a big slap in the face. First they fix the problem but then take it back from you by changing the other part that makes using 2HD weapon viable. Totally Blizzard and how they like to fuck with the users.

Believe it or not, there are still people on the KS forum defending this game as if its really going to happen and are leaving their pledges in place.

I guess it really does take a rock along side the head to wake some people up.

Yep, do yourself a favor and stay away from this game. and the game play they supposed do have in place looks like shit.

BTW, they are using assets from Unity. It seems they are using the Autumn Assets you can buy. about 1:17 in the similarities are very striking.
