Its almost been 2 months since release and although many bugs and glitches have been addressed by FS, there are still A LOT of design and gameplay issues which plague this otherwise awsome game. I’ve been lurking the forums for a couple of months now and i always find the same complains, so i tought to put SOME, not all of them, in a somewhat comprehensive list, so tell me what you think of them, but please keep in mind that im doing this not because i think its cool to hate on the game, but because i REALLY f***ing love this game, and i want to finally share my thoughts. So please, if you disagree please be civil.
FATSHARK WE ARE NOT STUPID, YOU CAN SHOW US STATS:
This is something that has been bothering me for quite a while. Mainly because it’s already somewhat implemented, through the dummies, but as many people already stated they are simply not enough. We need an option in the menu, to toggle stats on and off, by “stats” i mean: players health, damage, dps, buffs from abilities and items, the health of enemies, drop chances for red and cosmetics items ecc ecc. This WOULD GREATLY help out the community, and it would allow us to test out different weapons, builds, playstyles, items combinations, and tactics.
FATSHARK REMOVE GREEN DUST FROM THE GAME:
I’ve seen around 4 different posts talking about this in the last few days, so why not post a fifth?This problem is very simple in nature, but its very degrading for the game. It doesnt allow players to change/test out different builds/gear combinations. This is simply because players run out of the bloody dust and they can’t change the properties of the weapons anymore, thus making them unble to “roll” for new ones. This is isnt so much a problem for newer players, since they’ll be playing on lower difficulties which reward green dust fairly regularly, but once you get to a higher level, and you switch to higher difficulties the dust becomes more and more rare to a point in which you simply run out of it, forcing you to go and grind green dust on lower difficulties for hours on end. You can see how such a system is in dire Need of change.
FATSHARK SOME CLASSES AND TALENTS NEED FIXING AND CHANGE:
I dont know all the particulars of the classes and talents, so sorry if i won’t be very specific, but as many people already have made clear there are talents and classes that are simply uninspired, useless, broken or boring. For exemple: unchained, shades main ability, huntsman and ranger abilities, but as i said i dont know the specifics mainly because i dont play these classes, but if you do a quick search on the forums you’ll see what i mean.
FATSHARK THIS GAME ISNT A SLOT MACHINE , REMOVE ALL THIS USELESS RNG:
Where to start… I honestly dont know, the entire game is based on RNG, so changing it entirely would undoubtedly result in disaster, but what if we could change some key elements a tiny bit, just to make the game a lot more enjoyable? I think its possible. The loot system for exemple is in dire need of tweaking. Do something for me, go on the forums main page, and in the search bar type in “cosmetics” or “red” and try to count all the posts that complain about the complete lack of rewards and the utter frustration from trying to get either cosmetics , red items or any worth while reward for playing the game especially on legendary . Honestly its astonishing, its been 2 months since release, and every single day since then people have complained about the loot system, and how ridiculously hard you have to grind to get even one special item, and FS has been completely silent, making the frustration only rise, to point which it has made the game boring to play. There needs to be an increase in the drop chance for these kinds of items, or players will continue to abbandon the game in rows.
If you have any other suggestions or if you want to discuss any of the points i made then im more then happy to chat with you.
