  1. What non-MM critters have Full Auto? Stuff in the AE didn't get it.
  2. Devs on the discord report the issue was identified and a fix is in progress.
  3. It's not quite ready for prime time yet, but here's a little preview of something I've been working on. Before people ask ... , no, you won't be able to search for sets based on the bonuses they grant. Not for a while anyway. To offer that, I need to build a searchable index of bonuses on the back-end, and to create that, I need to parse the attribmods in the enhancements. But there's currently no attribmod parsing code in the back-end that creates the data files. It just dumps out raw data and the parsing is currently all done in bro
  4. None. That's native browser functionality. I simply display the JSON string inside <pre><code>...</code></pre> tags.
  5. Generally speaking, no, changes like these have not been back-ported to critters. That doesn't mean they never will be, however.
  6. There was a player in the testing Discord that specifically talked about the original visual effects causing disorientation and discomfort, and the latest new effects got a thumbs-up from them. Since the sounds didn't change, it seems that it really was the visuals.
  7. So I think I stumbled across the root cause, and if I'm right, it's suuuuper annoying, but still easy for the devs to fix. Why is it annoying? Well, I went looking for other powers that work like Shinobi does - powers that grant you a Global Boost that's a PPM damage proc. Two powers I found were Bio Armor's Offensive Adaptation and Plant Manipulation's Toxins. (Hybrid Assault does this too, but it can't be used when exemplared down low the way all these others can.) The obnoxious thing was that nothing in these other proc-granting powers looks meaningfully different fr
  8. @ViciousCabaret, can you try detoggling Shinobi, logging out while still while on an arc that exmplars you, and seeing if it is still broken when you toggle it on after login? I see that the power is flagged ignore_level_gained: false. I am wondering if it's possible that the granted power is not replaced if you already have it. Exemplaring below level 45 would cause you to lose a power you gained at level 50, and if you turned Shinobi on while level 50, that would mean you "earned" Shinobi Skills at level 50. The attribmod itself is set to "replace" stacking, but I hav
  9. There seems to be a widespread issue with fast snipes not working correctly, both in blast sets and in melee epic pools. Devs are investigating. Early indications is that the problem is specific to Brainstorm. (Testing by devs on internal environments don't show the issue.)
  10. OOC, is it affecting any other "in combat" type things? Stalker AS? Switching iPowers?
  11. I don't think it has anything to do with the Recharge Power, as that's present on Cryptic and the powers work fine there. I tested Moonbeam on a Stalker and a Scrapper on Cryptic. So it has to be something that's new to Brainstorm that's not on Cryptic.
  12. Taunt and damage massively outweigh every other factor. Taunt doesn't act like more damage, taunt massively multiplies other factors in your threat calculation, including damage. You could be on a Tanker running Super Speed full time, and as long as you sustain your taunts, the only thing that will peel aggro off of you is someone with comparable taunt * damage scales. Yes, if two Brutes or two Tankers are both taunting and smacking the same foe for about the same damage levels, the one with a threat penalty will probably lose aggro to the other one.
