4. Re: Out of the Blue May 18, 2015, 12:17 Wowbagger_TIP
 
I started playing around with Heroes a couple weeks ago. So far I've just been playing vs. AI, trying to learn the basics of the strategy and as many of the heroes as I can. I'm a MOBA noob, so this was probably a good way to go. I'm a couple matches away from hitting player level 20 now.

Overall, I haven't run into anything more than minor annoyance from other players. Some have been helpful, and others frustrated, but nothing that was truly obnoxious. I'm sure that regular matches could get a little more heated. The AI is pretty easy to beat if at least most of your team is playing decent. Have had some matches where a player or two were making things very difficult though.

Now I'm trying to decide what to get with the gold I've accumulated, and whether to buy the Nexus bundle.

This is nothing new. It's been going on for years. Toothless European privacy organization gets pissed about it, but has no authority to do anything. Nothing new on that front either. The comments were amusing though.

Anyone happen to know why I keep getting redirected to ad sites when I open a comment page on Blue's? I'm using Dolphin Jetpack browser on Android. It's REALLY annoying.

That fascinated me more then I thought, pretty clever

Yeah, aside from requiring the custom blade, it looks like it could be pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Probably be able to get one at Home Depot after a while.

GMG is offering 27% off on pre-order of Witcher 3. Now I'm tempted to get it and bump it up to the top of the backlog. Dammit. I was just starting to make some progress too :-/

Apparently, CD Projekt doesn't want people to buy it from GMG.

You mean GOG? I broke down and picked it up, even though I very rarely pre-order games. $43.80 was a decent price for it. It's a GOG key rather than Steam though.

Possibly GOG, but GOG is owned by CD Projekt. Unless this changed and I was unaware.

It is. Guess offers like this one are a way to direct people toward using their service instead of Steam.

Given that it's not supposed to be released until late this year, they've got a lot of time to polish and refine things. It may not be something that I'm terribly excited about, but it could end up being good.

I thought I was getting pretty jaded about games these days, but some of you guys make me look absolutely fanboyish.

Since this is an alpha or early beta version of the game, I'm sure a lot of the nitpicks that people pointed out will be rectified. The constant comments during attacks, some of the more annoying or obstructive UI elements, etc can always be fixed.

From what I've seen of this game before, it looks like TF2 with more variety and mobility in the characters/classes, especially vertically. It looks like it could be fun, and I'm sure I'll be giving it a try when it comes out.

The mods are integrated into the base game, yes, but they don't manifest nearly as frequently as during the challenge leagues. It's just not the same.
True, but given that there are so many of the mods integrated now, you're running into one or another of them pretty much constantly.

GGG always incorporates the league-specific modifications to the permanent leagues unless there was overwhelming negative views of certain ones.

I think the confusion on his part comes from the fact that those mods don't get incorporated into the regular leagues until the challenge leagues end. So, you won't be able to immediately continue that character in a league with the mods that are currently only in the challenge league.

That said, this is definitely not a new thing. With a couple of exceptions, all of the mods from previous challenge leagues have been incorporated into the regular leagues.

Mark of the Ninja was really good, so I've got high hopes for this one. Sounds pretty good already. Looking forward to seeing the gameplay.

Reviews have been very good. I like the fact that you can tweak the gameplay as you see fit.

edit: And another.

Thanks for the links! Yeah, this sounds like it's right up my alley. I'll be picking it up tonight most likely

My only actual problem with the game is not the lag or the desyncs (I play hardcore only). Is that the Modified Leagues end.. So they start off a league with the mobs getting specialty perks and then after 3-4 months the league ends and that's it. Your character gets moved to regular hardcore. I wish this didn't happen because I'd like to grind/progress my character to better and better with the same mods and decide if I want to start the new league.

Most of those league mods have made their way into the regular leagues as permanent changes. Plenty of people continue building their characters there, as well as experimenting with new builds.

Got into the beta last week, and already I think it's a big improvement to the leveling experience. You get better skill gems and gear with more sockets earlier in the game, and they've removed a lot of the unimportant and boring areas, making the more interesting content more densely packed. Very good changes overall.

Haven't had much time to play this past week, so I'm only getting into Act 4 Cruel, but the difficulty does seem to have increased too. They've been making good progress, adding new things and addressing balance issues with each patch. New melee ice skill was just revealed as well.

There was nothing "after the fact" about it until you had to have it explained to you.

I'm gonna just assume you're trolling now, since you only seem to be interested in engaging with the straw men you've created. I said nothing about bias being impossible. That sentiment was entirely your creation.

Engaging with people, at least gamer type people, on the internet for anything regarding women right now will only drive you insane. It's a ridiculous hot button where even hinting at women being good at something will get someone accusing you of being Hitler.
I
Actually, it's a hot button issue where if you criticize people's egalitarian failings or implied approval of treating men like shit, now or in the future, some wag accuses you of saying they're Hitler if you compliment women.

So much WTF in this thread. The payback comment was obviously a joke, targeted at tweaking the kinds of guys threatened by the success of women.

As for the failure of men, some men will see the success and equal treatment of women as bias against them, just because it's been so unequal for so long. Guess they'd better get used to playing on a more level field.

Fuck preordering this game. Waiting for the inevitable "Enhanced Edition"
I'll wait for reviews... and maybe a small discount in the Summer Sale.

Edit: Who am I kidding. I don't even have time to play this. Too many other things in the backlog right now. Maybe I get it in Holiday Sale or next Summer Sale instead.

I agree. I think entering the MOBA market two years ago was too late much less entering now.

Yeah, now is kinda insane. Fucking Blizzard is releasing their MOBA any day now, on top of all the others. These guys are screwed. Definitely would have rather seen them make Sins 2. I enjoyed the first one enough that I'd probably get the second.
