A few quick answers about v1.2

By on November 17, 2009 7:41:18 PM from JoeUser Forums JoeUser Forums

We’ve been reading feedback and play testing for the past couple of weeks. Here are some quick questions about the upcoming update.

1. We have removed the new favor items based on player feedback. Going forward, the effort will be to make the existing favor items more equally powerful but in different ways.

2. Horn of Battle has been changed to provide 50 health per second to minions for 20 seconds.

3. We will have a sample mod to hand out for people to get the hang of making mods. 

4. The sample mod is called “Boots of Better Speed”.

5. The way mods work is if you enable them in the mod manager you can use them single player. In Multiplayer, they will only work if others players have them installed.

6. Epoch 3 will probably start next week (stats are reset but we will keep favor points around).

7. The two new Demigods are not part of v1.2 but will be enabled to players relatively quickly.

8. We anticipate releasing v1.2 this week. Lots of moving parts to nail down as it’s a lot of changes under the covers.

Hope this helps.

This right here just trumped EA Games' entire support record from the founding of their company. Good job!

Why in the hell are you making horn of battle MORE powerful? WHY?!

November 17, 2009 7:54:21 PM from Demigod Forums Demigod Forums

Thank you Frogboy.

Many players old, new and the hardcore are really anxious for this patch.

The points you describe above are really wise descissions.

They also show that it DOES matter what thecommunity thinks

and you (GPG/Startdock) do SUPPORT the community and the game.

 

Even looking more foreward to the patch now .

Wonderfull news!

Instead of invincible minions for 10 seconds, it'll make harder to kill minions for 20 seconds. This is nerf to the Horn, not a buff.

Uh, they nerfed it. It gives a 1/4 of the regen now, it only has a longer duration.

Removing those new favor items is a great move.  They were a really bad idea!

Thanks for the communication -- that's all we ask for.

It's less powerful now. It was +200 hp/s for 10 seconds before (2000 hp total). Now it's only +50 hp/s for 20 seconds (1000 hp total). In between these changes it was +80 hp/s for 25 seconds (apparently).

They're also responsible for what happened to SPORE which kind of balances that out karmacly, sorry.

I has a happy!!! Thanks for clearing the Horn of Battle thing up Frogboy! I think 50HP/s for 20 second looks a lot better than what the changelog suggested.

And You get extra cookies for listening to the concerns of the community! All hail the Frog!

Actually from what I read, Will Wright is responsible for what happened to Spore.  Kind of sad, he had such an awesome concept going and dumbed it down into oblivion(does that even make sense metaphorically?) .

 

It's good to hear the new favor items are getting the blunt end of the pencil.

Over the moon that the new favor items were removed!

Ha!  I played MOM on my commodore 64 and thought it was the best thing since Bard's Tale.  Be careful, Frogboy, you're dating yourself.  That might fly with us old-timers, but the "I don't trust anyone over 30 crowd" may turn on you.

Nice work, SD and GPG

Nice work frog, nice work indeed.  Everything sounds good, looking forward to it.

I just can't wait for balanced favor items and items in general.

This update is gonna be huge and will change many things in the game. Thanx !!!!!

This. I am happy to see the new changes, and it is nice to hear you responded to the player feedback!

November 17, 2009 9:15:18 PM from Demigod Forums Demigod Forums

Thank you Frogboy for listening to the community and removing those favor items. I'm now looking forward to EVERYTHING about this patch.

Also, I'm VERY happy to hear that you plan on balancing favor items against each other to make them unique. Now, please ditch favor points to purchase items, and use them for NON-gameplay related materials. How about coupons towards demigod coupons, desktop images, in-game icons, alternate textures/colors, or anything superficial. Stuff that won't necessarily force people to grind away to be able to play at the same level as another player.

Thanks again!

Yeah nice indeed. I would like to see new demigods soon but if you need time to polidh them thats no problem. We all agreed that comunications with Stardock improved lately, which is very good.

I dont know however if reseting stats without putting in new  demigods/favor/items have any sense? Would like to hear some toughts about that.

Also is it possible to make unraked games in multiplayer mode? Just an option in lobby or something. We need place to test new builds, mods and so on.

Last think. Will games using mods will count towards rankings? i dont think they should as it could be easily abused.

i hate macs keyboards, sorry for mistakes, but im just not used to anything then my g15

I really appreciate that you guys are taking our feedback seriously and making changes based on it.  I really do.  Thank you!

 

Quoting Polynomial,

Oh and I think you're dreaming on that one, Poly, but I think that would be great.  I've got all of thanksgiving week off and I wouldn't mind nerding it up!
