This is not “I quit just so you know” post but I want to highlight imo a big problem in V2. Which is lack of possibility to have fun with different builds due to stupid RNG that is EVERYWHERE in this game.
Seriously, you can’t even grind out (well you can, but it takes hunders of hours to do it for one character) one hero- I have 300h on Slayer doing only Legend and still didn’t get all red weapons for dwarf. There are still some weapons that I would like to try different properties combos/traits and finding breakpoints etc.
Hell, I can’t even test new builds in semi-manner cause I have ZERO green dust, while swimming in blue and orange dust.
I would like to test LongBow huntsman properties/trait combos. I would like to try range with fully geared (max stats) crossbow, I would like to run Merc Kruber with stacked +Power vs Chaos on His Halberd plus handgun. And a lot more.
But since EVERY DAM THING in this game is RNG on RNG on top of RNG I just can’t. Even if they fix green dust it would still take me hours to roll everything just to test things out.
Seriously, for me this is my major flaw with game- In V1 properties/traits didn’t have that big of an impact on Cata like they have now in V2 on Legend. Not to mention since game does give ZERO information about enemy HP, damage taken etc. you pretty much blindly test out breakpoints/damage bonuses and try to figure out if it changed anything or not.
Honestly I would like to just have possibility to try out everything, test new things everyday etc.
Why did you decide to put everything into RNG Fatshark is beyond me. You thought RNG is the way to keep players playing. Well, I think not.
I am just saying that from my personal experience, but like 2 months ago I had regulary about 20-30 people in friend list playing V2. Now is like 3-4 max in peak. Whole my group also gave up. Not because of burn out- but RNG everywhere. Nothing is sure, you can’t plan your build, you can’t test out new things, you can’t be even sure if you will be rewared by the end of hard run and not getting 3x blue items…
Eh, in case of loot system FS you seem to have stoppped in early 2000s when Korean MMOs was a thing…
