    The changes to movespeed are great. Iggy seems good although I haven't played him yet. Matches are getting interesting now that people have been playing for a few weeks. Steel is a huge pain to deal with now.

    Is this game Free to play yet, or do I still need to pay for a founders pack?

    Thanks PMA. Also double xp weekend. If you hit level 20 you get a Founder's friend code to get someone else into the beta.

    Just a reminder for the new open beta weekend! It's gonna be tough with Overwatch out there, but I'll try to get a game or two in this weekend!

    Has anyone been playing this? I gave it a go on the PS4 this afternoon and ran through a game against bots. Not bad, but I'm hoping the sad state of the graphics are due to it still being in beta.

    Garry: I know you gentlemen have been through a lot, but when you find the time I'd rather not spend the rest of the winter TIED TO THIS FUCKING COUCH!
  • EtiowsaEtiowsa Registered User regular
    ??? What's wrong with the graphics?

  • Descendant XDescendant X Skyrim is my god now. Outpost 31Registered User regular
    They are extremely low res, at least they were on my PS4.

    I feel like this game massively over-values regen stats. Case in point, new guy's health regen aura costs 2 mana per point of health, which is kinda silly. He's still pretty good though.

    So, is anyone playing this still? I got the founders edition, and I'm looking for people to play with

    I hop on most nights for a game or two, but I tend to play rather late, so I don't know how much help I'd be.

    Another new character coming on the 15'th. I hear you like punching.

    Crunch is a melee fighter (Fury/Order) with a unique combo system. Utilizing each of his abilities, Crunch is capable of fluidly chaining combos together to quickly scrap his opponents.

    Re-Crunch - Re-Crunch repeats the last ability used, opening up more possible combos. Re-Crunch also has two passive components. First, landing basic attacks shaves time off your cooldowns. Second, every third ability used is empowered.
    Forward Crunch - Launches Crunch forward, stopping on the first enemy hero hit, dealing damage. When empowered, Forward Crunch drags enemies the full distance of the charge.
    Left Crunch - Crunch delivers a left hook that deals increased cleave damage. When empowered, Left Crunch deals 100% basic attack damage to all enemies in cleave range.
    Right Crunch - Crunch slows enemies on hit. When empowered, Right Crunch knocks up enemies.

    Also, as of December 6'th Monolith will be replacing the current map (Legacy). It'll be approximately 30% smaller than the current one. It'll also be asymmetrical.

    A complete overhaul along with Monolith map arriving next week

    https://www.epicgames.com/paragon/en-US/news/v35-release-notes

  • EtiowsaEtiowsa Registered User regular
    Damn, I'm kinda worried about a lot of those hero changes. Poor Grux is gonna lose a lot of presence with the nerf to his pull.

  • DocshiftyDocshifty Registered User regular
    Eh, movement speed is pretty decently increased in general, along with debuffs for shooting, strafing, and walking backwards, so it sounds like it will still be pretty easy to get within range for the new distance on the pull. Add that the pull is wider now as well, requiring you to be less precise with it.

    I don't know, it does seem like a whole lot of change at once. Kinda sounds like the next few months are entirely going to be tweaking, with how much is being altered in a single go here.

  • EtiowsaEtiowsa Registered User regular
    They widened the base, not the tip, it's to make it easier to land point plank. And the whole reason it was good before was that you could threaten ranged peeps with it from a relatively safe distance, now you have to be well into attack range to even try to hit it. We'll see how everything shakes out, but I don't think it looks good. Greystone is gonna be even more annoying now.

  • DocshiftyDocshifty Registered User regular
    Keep in mind range heroes have had their range reduced too. The numbers don't shake out in Grux's favor though, to be sure. But I don't know how the increased cast speed and movement speed play in to it yet.

    And this is probably a pretty good example of why it sounds like they might be changing a bit too much all at once.

    I'm am absolutely going to be hopping on in a few hours to give it a whirl. I am hopeful, I like the game.

  • BladeOfSanjuroBladeOfSanjuro Registered User regular
    I will be checking this out tonight, excited to see the changes as it looks like their design is getting closer to how I first thought the game was going to be.

    Man, it's been so long, I need to remember which character goes where again. Surprised you can't see the "suggested lane" thing outside of character select.

    Three matches down.

    Just

    Constant fights. 30 minutes of team skirmishing and surprise brawls everywhere.

  • AumniAumni Registered User regular
    The move speed stuff looks really nice. I like how it's coming together.

    Skillshots are a lot harder now that people aren't snails in combat. My first game as Riktor was embarrassing until I compensated.

    And Kallari is a fucking terror. Like, everything is always off cooldown and she just hits so hard. 20-4 with her in the first match.

  • DocshiftyDocshifty Registered User regular
    Also I keep getting 100% extra xp and rep from event bonus. So, if you're looking to get masteries and paragon levels, hop on it.

  • EtiowsaEtiowsa Registered User regular
    Oh god, everything is horrible and different. I have to completely redo all my decks.

  • BladeOfSanjuroBladeOfSanjuro Registered User regular
    yeah, i haven't even tried PVP yet... ran Lt. Bellica in a couple of vs AI games with 4 randos and was happy to see we cleaned up the AI in less than a half hour each time. PVP maybe tomorrow.

    steam_sig.png
  • DocshiftyDocshifty Registered User regular
    Kallari matches so far
    20-4
    20-2
    12-3
    10-1
    15-2
    14-1
    17-2

    A combined 108-15

    I think about 8 of those deaths were self imposed (tower diving for 2for1s that let my remaining teammates push towers/inhibitors). Lets see how long this lasts.

    I am at a complete loss how to play Steel in the new meta.

    The ranged characters all seem to make sense right now though. Sparrow just go pure damage and crit.
