Whats next on the chopping block? I play and hunter and i won't disagree completely with the notion that volley may need an adjustment, but there are 9,000 opinions on what should happen. Then the ball is rolling. Whats next. The next spell or RA that someone dislikes has a thread started so we can devolve it as well? Your last paragraph you mention that archers need to be included in the DAOC range framework. That may be the case, but "then" you could also make the case that GTAoEr's shouldnt be able to hit targets in an enclosed envrionment , like the lord room of a defended keep? Thats how this goes. One thing lead to another, and another, and as i stated in a previous thread, we can all carry sticks to the battlefield and hit each other with those. Same range mechanics, same damage table, same (insert next) and let ROG decide the outcome for us.Isavyr wrote: ↑Wed Aug 14, 2019 7:27 amIt's irrelevant, in my opinion, for the reasons already stated: That volley's "counter" is using the same ability in response--in other words, there is no actual counter.
Yes, yes the range is exactly the problem. Basically if an enemy can attack with impunity, people will flee a certain area. This isn't reasonable. Archers need to be included in the DAOC range framework. If you're dealing damage, you should be within nearsight/amnesia range. If the archers were forced to enter the keep, it's certain that they will not be able to volley with impunity; they'd have to deal with assassins, CC, damage, gtae, so forth.Sepplord wrote: ↑Wed Aug 14, 2019 6:35 amIs the range REALLY the problem here? If those archers were positioned closer, inside the keep....would the defending force suddenly charge out to kill them? They could coordinate that, but can't coordinate to have people go onto the roof with shield guards and/or healers ready below?
DAoC has always been rock/paper/scissors. I love plying my Zerk more than any class, but this patch level with custom changes without New RA charge basically makes me a stun-locked mezzed out knot on a log for an extended amount of time. I'm not calling for a stun nerf, or a mez nerf, or even a nerf between melee stuns and magical stuns (which are on a different timer). I'm not calling for a nerf between constant lock down mode on any of my melee classes. I adapt or i log. Those who havent been banned, or havent quit are doing the same. For the moment i would prefer reasonable conversations with legitimate ideas rather than just saying "swing the nerf hammer" (not suggesting thats what you're saying). Im just offering up the juice for the next round of , " ok you nerfed that..... Next....."
