Time for some good old fashion testing! If you've had your fill of Trick or Treating, want to help out the volunteer team, or just like seeing what's on the horizon, log in to the beta server and test out these proposed changes for Page 5.

I didn't see an entry for "other powers" but if you are going to reduce the pulse rate on Irradiated Ground (which I would be sad to see go, but I would understand), you need to give something more to the Radiation Melee set.  Give Proton Sweep a deeper range, cut animation time on PS and Radiation Siphon, something like that.  The overpoweredness (yeah, that's a word!) on IR served as a decent tradeoff for the absolute clunkiness of the set otherwise.  In my opinion.

Who run Bartertown?

Think you might be in the wrong thread, mate. This is for Illusion Doms, lol

Edit: Nope, it's me in the wrong thread. Ignore me. >_>

I was under the impression that the "pulse rate" on irradiated ground that was being changed was just for procs, not for the power itself?

FF revamp!!!! I don’t know why this excited but it does! [I’ve just woken up]

Illusion looks fun. I might finally be time to make one.


I don’t know why but moving the order we get powers makes me feel funny… it’s been part of the game for so long, holding on until 32, but I can roll with it.

 

will hop to beta this weekend.

Oh hey, more changes they're going to ram through without actually taking anyone's feedback into account.

 

At least there's no GLOBAL NERFS in this page.

More of their war against AE farmers.

There are literally Focused Feedback threads dedicated to each change. Are you just intentionally causing drama or do you really not pay attention...?

You mean the same threads they ignored last page?  Don't be dense.

I dunno. I’m optimistic that if you actually test it then your feedback will be listened to. There were wiggles last time if you raised good points respectfully, after testing it, and could make a well thought out argument. Attitude plays a lot in this I think.

Where you saw a few small wiggles, I saw a whole lot of "yeah, we'll look at that" followed by pushing it live as-is.

 

They could at least be honest about their intentions with the threads and call them "Bug Testing: X Change".   Because that's clearly the only feedback they're actually interested in.

This is incredibly naive and I'm truly sadden by how uninformed you are. You can choose ignore reality, but for everyone else, there's content to be tested on the beta server. Good luck!

So we avoid some of the issues from the last update, where people felt they weren’t having their opinions cared for, can us forum-dwellers make a point of trying to spread the word to the game-players who aren’t on here to get more people testing?

Well said! I mentioned this last night during a PUG ToTing group and there was excitement and curiosity abound.

I forget which one it was but there was a thread where it was universally viewed in a negative light. It was changed within a RC so I think if it's a situation like that it'll be changed with some testing and whatnot.

 

Just gotta get more people to the beta server is all.

Not everyone is able to get onto the beta server for any number of possible reasons that I will not elaborate here, and I would still like my thoughts to be considered, others seem to disagree. I do concede that actual beta testing and in-game trials would be best, but I don't think that should be the only consideration worthy of note when weighing someone's feedback, especially when it's asked for. Personally I won't be participating in any future beta feedbacks.
