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.

Yes, Con Artist still exist In this world because people are still stupid enough to believe in what they are selling you.


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.

Been using PrecisionX for a while now, but just downloaded Afterburner and will probably stick with that given the background behind Precision that I wasn't aware of before, as well as this current code-stealing fuckery.

So, just because someone claims they used the code it becomes factual? you sound like a women who just cried rape but was never raped and the guy now has to prove his innocence.

The fact is, no ones knows for sure if they did or didn't use his code. Until someone digs into the code and does a side by side comparison to prove it. Then I would suggest you not falsely accuse someone until that fact is proven.

Windows 7 support will really only end somewhere in 2022 or so. Not even MS is dumb enough to go through the XP support debacle twice in a row.

Btw, so Vista is already officially off support then?

No kidding dude, MS is all their stupidity had better learn very quickly that they cant keep trying to force peoples into there new OS. Win Hate sucks to all high heaven. I absolutely refuse to use that piece of shit OS.

I have hop for Win 9, but only time will tell if that OS is worth a damn.

I have this preordered already.

Back when I was a young nipper playing Pool of Radiance, I would have given a testicle to play a game that looks like this. A little perspective is in order...

Then by all means let loose of your wallet and pre-order every RPG you can. Forever. Because chances are they'll all look better than the games of old.

You'd be surprised how many I do buy.

I do too, So Ill let you all know once we get some play time in. but seeing how large the game is that might be a bit. so reviews will be the most likely front runners for information.

Hmmm. I don't. I really don't.

Me neither. The Witcher 3 is going to play ball and slam dunk this poor motherfucker.

Ill bet everyone of you right now that you are wrong. Some of you guys are dumping all over this game because its EA and because the prior DA 2 failed badly. But this is an entirely new game and engine. they have taken a great deal of time to make a game that is wide open world. Every bit as much as Witches will be. I think its going to be very difficult to pick the winner at this years game of the year.

Everything I've seen and read so far about the game tells me this is going to do the DA name justice. I'm not a Hugh fan of EA at all, but this game does look impressive so far. So I'm giving it the benefit of doubt.

Dont lose too much sleep over that. The really 'bad' sort of cancels out with the horribly 'gushing'. Hence, average scores...

The only reason this one is getting flak is because of the score. Others on metacritic reviewed the beta, which didn't even include portions of the game past Cyseal, and aren't getting any of the moaning because the scores are better.

Hell, most of the complaints about this review are because the screenshots are old and he talks about the graphics in the review, but that is what the actual game looks like at release. I disagree that there's anything wrong with how it looks, but to each his own.

The writing is average at best, the difficulty is all over the place, and once you get past those areas that were in the beta the game feels less cohesive. It's a good game, and I'm really enjoying it, but the community has decided it's the game of the moment and therefore has no faults so there's hell to be paid by anyone who says otherwise.

You certainly hit the nail on the head. I didn't much care for how that guy reviewed the game. It really bugs me when many of the review sites are re-using the same screenshots of the game.

To me, if you want to be a viable reviewer you need to post actual screenshots that you took of the game while playing it.

As for the game, I'm personally loving it, I've been playing it Coop with my Son who does not like turned based games, but loves this game to death. so if he can get into this game like he has, then you can see why this game has taken the community in general by storm.

I really like that the devs are taking a personal interest in their own game as they have and are patching it almost weekly with hot fixes and are working on a new large patch to address many of the issues or concerns. These guys haven't taken any time off since the games release to work on the patch, so that tells you how dedicated they are to the games success.

Wow, so these guys are going to any length to try and get that 50K. I for one canceled my pledge, I will not fall for any of their dirty tactics no matter who they bring on board.

I would rather be wrong then be ripped off and pay full price for the game. but even if, and that's a big if this game does get made and released. I will still wait and pay bargain bin pricing just because these douche bags don't deserve my money for the piss poor handling of this KS campaign.

i wish EA or someone would remake the original C&C with better graphics... i have very fond memories of C&C1 and has a special place in my heart.

have you forgotten that this was tried about a year ago and the project got cancelled by EA? The problem is, everyone seems to think making this type of game now requires in game transactions. This is what is killing games in general with many gamers.

We cant just go an buy a game anymore without some greedy assed developer wanting to milk the game for every Penney they can get.

There were a couple of pieces of art accompanying the announcement. I didn't find them helpful, but after this comment I added them in so you can judge for yourself.

Thanks Blues, its helpful.
