Fix your game!!! There's too many evasion dp meme strikers that only have around 235-250 so but hit harder then even my class which is a 271 ap warrior. I do more damage to a ninja with 700+ Eva and 220ish dp then a striker with 600ish Eva and 340ish dp but yet he is still able to grab, leg drop, then clones and kill me.....your last update with the needed basic ap is POINTLESS since even new players can get over 150ap in just a few hours.
You should fix the summons issue and make it based off ap bracket and not basic ap
Nerf the strikers clones by roughly 20% PvP dmg and 100% acc to 50% like the other classes
If your wondering why you have less new players, well it's because your game is unbalanced classes and players get too many hand outs to get them caught up. No one wants some new player less then 1 month in to catch up to soft-cap players and it takes away the FUN of starting a new game when everything is handed to you plus makes ALL THE LOWER AP GRIND SPOTS USELESS which in turn means no reason to have the mobs in game.
Strikers need a hard nerf/debuff or whatever.....too OP with 340 dp and some evasion
After some hard testing I’ve just sent feedback relating to this, however, lower end grind spots are still used for many reasons and just for the fact to finish the main questline at least once, CP, energy and knowledge to get the extra 20% drop rates, awakening and succession quests and especially the biggest factors; scrolls for memory fragments!
Eventually, seasonal gear will be introduced and shouldn’t be sniffed at, it not only helps the new player but it’s also a viable ‘back up’ for the TRI/TET/PEN yo-yo and also when and eventually fallen god armour drops as the gear your useing now is used to upgrade to said fallen god and will still need enhancing!
Please don’t get so upset over new players when they’re not the problem and adding to that, if there were no new players the central market would be a turd fest, obtaining boss gear would become a time constraint and also, no new striker with sub 2k skill points, sub 30+ health, STR and stamina and game knowledge should be out performing a seasoned player!
Tested many classes, levelled all classes 57+, re rolled those classes and can say with certainty that a fresh character levelling/questing through Mediah, Valencia, Kamasylvia and Dreighan has a hard time from many high level and geared player still using those zones for all previous said reasons and more!
Any MMO ‘needs’ relevant new players or the game dies for so many reasons and the main reason being, the big man will always need the little man to stay afloat and the echo system from drying up!
Agreed, balance does need looking at amongst other things, but let’s not point the finger at what’s not broken and actually needs fixing itself to maintain the player base and retention!
Edit: think about it this way, if you were to start another game fresh out of the box, whether that be a FPS Battle royal, online MMORPG or otherwise and out the gate the general players in PvP had twice the power and all you witnessed was your death over and over again for months on end, would you even last that long? No game does that, there maybe extra weapon perks, aesthetically pleasing skins etc but the rest is down to game knowledge and muscle memory, of course your going to do more damage to an eva build with 220dp as that’s a one shot with decent accuracy and a cc, but a striker with 340dp rotating protection skills is more to do with game and class knowledge and with yourself having 271ap you may want to try lowering that slightly for more DP/DR and resistances so that being grabbed and stun locked is no longer an issue and actually play the classes that you struggle against for greater understanding so as to know what to avoid and when your openings are available!
Many players have often resulted in salty smack talk even though I’ll be the one flagging them and die repeatedly to them over and over and then throw out the “I won you 20-2” “trash” etc
Little do they know I’m just looking for the 2 in finding out what works and what doesn’t against that class.....
There is no loss in defeat when knowledge is gained 😁👍🏻
