Re: /help/bug report

I suppose I have only played shards where chests have been placed, but if what I'm understanding is correct, not placing any chests will still allow, for example, a level 15 hero to full clear a level 20 shard and get 30 Orbs (they will just drop from enemies instead)

Re: /help/bug report

It didn't need overhauling, because orb rates are more resistant to changes in a Shard's layout compared to Glory, eg: Boom Farms. Your orb gain is only slightly under average, most likely due to a combination of running shards that are way under your level, and "losing some efficiency" while speed...

Re: /help/bug report

More and more players are level capping themselves knowing how progression really takes a nose dive the higher leveled you are and how it becomes increasingly harder to grind. If the glory system got overhauled to make every shard a viable source of glory, then why can't it be the same for orbs? If...

Re: MONOLISK - Suggestions

- First, a simple chest tracker added to the player's HUD. We know a 50 shard can place 3 chests, 100 can be 5, etc. but not whether the creator hid a chest or just didn't place them all. Format would be (chests found) / (total chests placed) - Allow creators to test their shard AS IF they were an a...

Re: /help/bug report

I watched an hour of one of his streams today on my day off, and I don't want to know the star rating he gives to my shards :shock: (edit: he gave The Dark Path a 2* @ 8:43:00 in his Live 6 video. It was really cool to see my shard being played. My favorite part was when he busts into the infested C...

Re: /help/bug report

A player might still be able to progress, but if being higher level only clearing lower shards yields so little reward, wouldn't the average player experience burn out? Maybe that is what they were afraid of when they decided Creator packs will not give experience. Also, go through your shard lists ...

Re: /help/bug report

I was thinking more about this issue, and see another problem in the case of a player having an outlier experience on the other end of the spectrum. One in which they buy only Universal Packs, get XP, but only pull 1-2 hero cards and the rest building tools. Eventually, as you say, the law of averag...

Re: /help/bug report

Well if it leads to internal balancing, or even review, and a tooltip in-game, I am pleased to be your outlier guinea pig.

I would give the attention to this matter a 4th star if I could, but the system won't allow it.

Re: /help/bug report

Even so, why does the game itself not provide this information? I've been playing for a month and had to find out here thinking it was a glitch. All I knew prior was that Packs = XP, and I had read the forums and patch notes. So here's why I want to keep leveling as I open Creator packs: I've scoure...

Re: /help/bug report

I don't disagree with the design, and yes some shards in my range are a challenge with my poorly equipped Artificer. Others I use my 3 dmg weapon Shadow with high armor and full skill kit as a challenge to clear, but my Mage with a full kit and Legendary Staff makes quick work of anything. My well-e...
