Hello,

Sorry for being away the last month or so, I was overwhelmed with the job and didnt care that much about HU, I apologize.

So, if I understand well, the coomunity want 1.6c WITH a reset.
If so, it will happen on thursday.

If I missed something, please let me know as soon as possible.

Thanks and sorry again for the delay.

Well shit. Here we go again. How many chances do we give before enough is enough? This makes what 3-4 resets in less than 3 months? Hotfixes okay, but fuck I just get back into HU only to have to start all over?? I was perfectly content to play with things as was until 1.7 was ready. I imagine many feel this way. Too bad someone had to fuck the poll which until the end said no to resetting realm.

(It's like asking the question for a last time)

Since I'm "community oriented" ... this decision comes to them.

I trully really don't want to, but if that's what they really want ...

I really don't feel like I have a say in this, so I will only give my advice. Decide yourself, Duff. Do not listen to the community or whatever, you have been keeping this up forever now. If you want to do a reset, do it. If you don't want to, don't do it.

And to everybody else: guys, don't act entitled, please.

If it could be done without a reset, it would be great, understood if there is something that absolutely requires a reset.

I do think that the current patch needs updated now that most of the actual bugs are found and fixed. A (un)healthy number of items are nonfunctional, or broken is some regard. I would really like to see these fixed.

I would like to summon Ensley and ask if the patch notes in that 1.6c thread are all up to date at the moment.

This.

It is my understanding that most of the power players were holding out until 1.7 anyway. I have only seen a few people strongly interested in a reset at this point, although they have been very vocal about it...

Not sure if your asking or telling us there will be a reset? It is my hope that there is not a reset as I am content with playing this version as is until 1.7, lots of time and effort invested already, looked at the changes and nothing worth reset in my opinion.

Oh wow I haven't been here for a few days, didn't expect this. The problem with not resetting is it would leave behind items that are not balanced for the new monster balance, and 1.6c is sooo fine-tuned that it would be a shame to have broken legacy rares/facets/wirts/fire armor.

Also there's a chance that a few runewords and sets could cause bad character data.

I've played a lot too but starting fresh when you know that nothing is going to be terribly broken is a good feeling. If it wasn't reset, I'd just delete my characters and play it fresh for myself and try to get a couple buddies to come back and play.

The patch notes are up to date but if Duff's actually going to do it then I will look at it again tonight for one last really thorough check - nothing major would be changed obviously. The patch has had over 150 downloads over the last 3 weeks for single player and nobody has complained about any failures yet.

I do not know if this is polle or just notice but I would love to have reset. I was played every day (until last week I played single player) and only see people who say reset is good. Sure it must be these people in secret password games do not want reset I guess?

I dont mind there being a new update, but if people are worried about bad character data and imbalance then as ensley stated they can create new characters themselves without having an effect on those who dont wish for a reset. I myself would welcome a reset, but with the current situation please consider updating the patch, without a reset for those who dont have the time and are fed up with constant starting over again.

Cheers.

What I told Duff was if 1.7 is at least 3+ months away then he should just reset. If PureRage thinks it will be ready in just a couple weeks then there's no point in trolling people with resets. Now is actually a good time because most people have already given up on the D3 and POE seasons.

Duff i understand you've been away for a while but there was a thread which asked if you should reset with 1.6c or just update the current realm to 1.6c.

Most people agreed via forums posts (not the poll threads) to update without a reset. So if u could do that instead of resetting that would be great.

Reset it. There is no semblance of balance in the patch with facets as they are and they'll still remain if it's not reset.

I am now curious what can be offerd to us (I read patch notes, SP download) although I was against new patch 1.6c.
However, since I dont have much time to play any more, would reset put me in some bad mood if i have to do everything all over again.

I would wait until Pure-rage and Bravan patch is completed to see new content.

But if you decide otherwise, i'd bear with it

v1.7 will not be ready in the near future. I'd expect an update to v1.6c now is a fine idea. People will still find small things that are either buggy or preferably changed, but consider keeping a list of them like Kramuti did. The list can be something folks tackle when they get bored of playing v1.7 and would prefer to patch v1.6 into v1.8.

One of the main features of 1.7 is that I'm trying to get around 10 viable builds per character (by viable, I mean "fun to play" rather than able to solo all of Norm), which requires a lot of testing. Back in January I mentioned I could share the design document around April/May, but keep in mind the document is just a quickly produced set of goals. I'm still implementing the features of the document, and PureRage (I think) is just now finishing up the new content he wanted to introduce. Lately the Testers have been unavailable, but perhaps that will pickup soon.

Yeh content is very nearly finished for now, most of the remaining work on my end is cleaning up new maps and bug fixing/testing. I have more I'd like to add (A5 hells revamp etc.) but I'll wait until 1.9 so there will be something new to explore in that version rather than throw everything in at once.

As an alternative to resetting, you could set existing phys facets to lvl req 120 and create 2 new facets with the altered stats. Be sure to disable existing facets from spawning.
For trang armor, just add a calc to fire mastery: (blvl>0)?(regular calc):(desired oskill mastery %)

Existing OP facets become too high for people to equip, so new ones need to be found and resocketed. Old facets no longer drop.
Fire Mastery oskill grants a flat bonus to fire mastery%.
That solves those 2 issues for now. Not sure what the other changes are exactly so you may or may not need a reset depending on other changes.

Patch note also lists change for rare items now so not sure if this can be fixed without reset. As well as change for the dog summon helmet - not sure what else.

Still learning this game and having a blast. I finally got into Hell and it would suck to start ocer, but there are others who would lose more so I cannot complain. Just really grateful this mod is maintained the way it is.

Shit, it's actually causing my girlfriend to get mad at me for playing. That's a good thing. I will just get another angelic, then lochdanans and zeal shit with a better build. Neutral for what it's worth from a newer player.

It would be nice if you could make a final decision about reset, because at this point my friends and me are waiting for something that may or may not happen, and we don't want to waste time on progressing if the realm will reset in a couple of days.
I don't mind if the reset will or won't happen btw, just make a decision please.

Grats on finishing off whatever tiny community was left. But hey, the 3-4 people who have a large number of high level characters can jack off on their keyboard to their phat facet loots.

You know, I no longer log in to play but I check the board and realm status from time to time. It's funny to see passworded games with 8 characters in them all of them being on the same account. And this is a tendency nowadays as I see.

I honestly don't care whether there's a reset or not, but am I wrong if I assume that these players with eight 90+ characters in the same game are the ones who voted "no"? Is this what you guys enjoy doing?

And to the upcoming "why don't you play if you don't care" question: because of the existence of this thread. There was supposed to be a reset. Now there's nothing and we don't know if it's happening in the near future or not. All I ask for is one post to clarify if it is.

Folks should probably relax a minute. It should be clear that something out of Duff's control has happened.

And adding another reset which has limited testing won't? Just because a few things are glitched don't mean everyone uses and/or exploits them. In fact, there's so much more that's screwy IMHO.

Lets start with the life per lvl for pala, barb, druids. It's negated the party aspect in many cases. Oak with elemental pierce? WTF??? Barb with very limited life buff? The idea of dropping buff skills to 5 minute cap? Seriously???? The making of warmth as needing to be cast was stupid, yet IF 1.6C goes live it to gets capped at 5 minutes? Nothing more annoying that getting to a hot spot and the "Oh shit I gotta recast my five minute skill AGAIN" So no, it's not a correct direction. It simply will add to the frustration of progression with some classes even more than some.

Much of the mid-game gear blows ass. A lot of high end gear lacks much variety in terms of usability. Toothrow turned into a no skill lighting armor? No skills on Guardian Angel? Tyreals and Templars 2 soc now?? Skulders no Ed? Yuck, it used to be okay for mfing with in some areas. There's plenty more. As has been the case for a bit, it's crafting as the way to go.

In truth, so many changes over the last couple patches have altered the mod away from what it should be. My two favorite patches have to be 1.21z and 1.3b. Those showed a good balance between being able to accomplish things. Some monster skills need a small tweak downward. Like the blizzard in act3 and act5. Get a room full of those Hierophant with a couple seraphs and it's a royal pita for anyone without maxed zorbs and dr. That changed with a change to sorc blizzard spell a while back. The fire catapults could be tamed a bit, the fire patch lasts forever.

Some of the proposed changes are a step in the wrong direction some maybe good. Question is, does the good outweigh the bad. And how many bugs haven't been found? With what we have, we know what we have.

My two pennies.

Warmth is a 60 minute buff, not 5 minutes, as it is a self buff only, just like Holy Shield. armors/enchant/shout are 5m to somewhat discourage botting with AFK characters in town. So yeah if you're in a group fight for longer than 5m, you'll need to rebuff. Oh noes! If you play SP, go change them to 90000 frames (60 minutes).

Those armors were explained because the game had no mid-game lightning armor or real magic pierce armor. Others like Crow Caw were just not ever used and were changed to create a mid-game fire/lightning/cold/poison/magic armor so that you didn't need to wait until 85+ to find or make an armor that wasn't useless, along with the Vizjerei RW. The feedback for these has been generally quite positive, so I'm not sure why you are salty over the removal of Toothrow, and the mid-game gear "blows ass" because monster DR and resists are not rough until you get to Tobial in Hell, and with no immunities, how powerful does gear really need to be? Also keep in mind the adjustments for Amp and Sorc masteries will definitely help melee and Sorcs through that mid game gear that "blows ass" ;)

I do agree the monster blizzard in A3 Hell and beyond is probably a bit too powerful but it's not game-breaking and is something to keep you on your toes at least. I'm worried that nerfing it may turn it into a spell that people just ignore like so many others.

As far as "limited testing" goes, there's been very little change made over the last 3-4 weeks of it, over 150 downloads, and I've had lengthy PM and skype discussions with 6 people, 3 of which are only playing SP, on top of my own testing.

Also, if you've never even downloaded the patch over the last several weeks to look at it, then, quite frankly, you have no opinion. I'm not saying you should spend days on it and write a formal essay, but surely spending 20 minutes on Hero Editor and running in game with some builds you're concerned about to test is not really too much to ask. Of course, it's always easier to throw a temper tantrum when a patch simply isn't made exactly how you would have made it.

Kwikster has a very valid point, and instead of acting like toddlers, namely Angel, who has displayed that when they don't get their way they're going to kick and scream and throw petty insults at others, others who might i add are devout enough to play the game through counterproductive patches and keep this mod lively. Maybe you should grow up, and start rethinking your attitude? If this is how you act in real life, i don't doubt you're as lonely as Andariels third nipple.

I dunno. But those of us that have modded in the past have often decided not to later because of this kind of response to things that don't happen as they see fit.

I don't know how long you have lurked before making a forum account, but if you have only recently found this mod, then you should become aware that Duff has never just gone MIA without a reason. Usually it has been work. Imagine that...his life doesn't revolve around us...GASP.

And adding another reset which has limited testing won't? Just because a few things are glitched don't mean everyone uses and/or exploits them. In fact, there's so much more that's screwy IMHO.

Lets start with the life per lvl for pala, barb, druids. It's negated the party aspect in many cases. Oak with elemental pierce? WTF??? Barb with very limited life buff? The idea of dropping buff skills to 5 minute cap? Seriously???? The making of warmth as needing to be cast was stupid, yet IF 1.6C goes live it to gets capped at 5 minutes? Nothing more annoying that getting to a hot spot and the "Oh shit I gotta recast my five minute skill AGAIN" So no, it's not a correct direction. It simply will add to the frustration of progression with some classes even more than some.

Much of the mid-game gear blows ass. A lot of high end gear lacks much variety in terms of usability. Toothrow turned into a no skill lighting armor? No skills on Guardian Angel? Tyreals and Templars 2 soc now?? Skulders no Ed? Yuck, it used to be okay for mfing with in some areas. There's plenty more. As has been the case for a bit, it's crafting as the way to go.

In truth, so many changes over the last couple patches have altered the mod away from what it should be. My two favorite patches have to be 1.21z and 1.3b. Those showed a good balance between being able to accomplish things. Some monster skills need a small tweak downward. Like the blizzard in act3 and act5. Get a room full of those Hierophant with a couple seraphs and it's a royal pita for anyone without maxed zorbs and dr. That changed with a change to sorc blizzard spell a while back. The fire catapults could be tamed a bit, the fire patch lasts forever.

Some of the proposed changes are a step in the wrong direction some maybe good. Question is, does the good outweigh the bad. And how many bugs haven't been found? With what we have, we know what we have.

My two pennies.


+1

The 1.6c "fixes" are terrible many of them and would ruin the game even more. But well go ahead, ruin it.

I am waiting for 1.7 or 1.8 anyway, this mess and the constant fear of an reset stopped me bothering.

For sure we got joked if on purpose or not because now nobody will play. I am enjoying 1.6c on single player but would have much more fun if online.

I also would like to say Snakzz is a real troll as he only makes posts to complain.

I can show you a few, mine. Only my casters roll full facets. The game can be played without them IF you know how ;)

As for Mancer, you clearly have no clue about the man. As has been said before he likely as not had something come up IRL that's kept him away. He'll check in when he can.

My zealer doesn't have a single phys facet, level 95 and can run well in Hell. You should tone down the hostility or take your own advice and "fuck off".

How could you not have a single facet unless you just don't gamble, and why wouldn't you? I think the point was they are unbalanced along with the fire armor and a reset to clean those errors is a good idea.

There was a Thursday last week too and there is going to be another one next week. As long as you don't see Duff's name showing up, don't expect an answer.
