So, this post should mainly be considered a rant. Which is what it is.
I have a problem, and it is spelled “whiners”. I see alot of people, often the same ones, on different threads whining about how they are unable to pull through Legend and how they blame nothing but the game and its design.
These whiners main complaint is the “unbalanced nature of the Game Director”. How it throws too much at them at the same time. How suddenly the game “wants them to lose”. There is the occational guy responding to them with “git gud”, and I can’t help but to agree.
Apart from some glaring bugs which should be adressed asap (silent spawns, patrol behavior and % power vs X enemy), what do you expect? A cake walk through Sunny Lane Gloryland park? I love hard games. I live for them, such as the Souls series, Mortal Kombat etc. In any game I play I like to search for challenge.
V2 is one of the games that give it to me. Especially on Legend. The frustration is always around the corner. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m talking about good frustration. The type of frustration you are supposed to feel when engaging a challenge, not bad frustration like game breaking bugs and all that jazz.
So, the Game Director is there to give us this challenging experience, that exponentially increases with every difficulty level.
There is also a gap between every difficulty, which means you will have to stay there a while to adapt and collect better gear, so you eventually can engage the next difficulty. Now. For those unable to clear Legend there is Champion. It rewards you with the same gear. It’s somewhat Challenging, but at 600HP you get your cake walk through Sunny lane Gloryland. Which is what you want right?
I’ve had alot of losses on Legend personally, and I certainly blame some things with the game, such as the bugs mentioned earlier. Sometimes it’s literally the bugs that cause a loss.
But mostly it’s Kerillian firing a volley in my back. Mostly it’s Slayerdin going yolo at 3 CW:s and a horde. Mostly it’s me not staying with my group. Mostly it’s others not staying with the group. Mostly it’s a complete lack of communication.
So, maybe the Game Director needs some tweaking. But tell me why some people consistently destroys Legend,running it solo even, while others whine on the forums about “how difficult it is”.
