I’m unsure if my skills have regressed dramatically or if things legitimately got harder in game. I play with my wife & we had been walking through champion with ease (with books) & finished a few legend missions before the last patch.
She decided to play shade & needed to practice backstabbing so I ran low level toons through on veteran for a week or so till she felt comfortable again for champion. Before the dlc we would succeed 90% of the time, even if it was only us alive. Now we’re wiping more than half of our games. 6 quickplays in the last 2 days have netted 2 wins, and one of those I turned private so we only had bots with us.
It feels like there are more enemies of all types, and hordes are bringing more people than before. On skittergate the adds have been an issue that seemed so simple before. Last night on festering ground the final tunnel opened and within 20 seconds 3 party members went from full health to dead from the newly spawned adds (chaff, assassin, fire rat, monks). In another instance a horde dropped down to us & I have always been able to cut through them by spam light attacks, but now they suddenly hit back.
I’m trying to figure out if something changed in the game or if I actually got worse as a player. I always try to learn what went wrong, but in almost every situation now it feels like a flood of enemies that can not be overcome.
