    Hey San,

    I needed time to reply to this message as it was during the VU / Mini Patch window and

    Let me try to address this from a development standpoint with the philosophy that we have for items in EU, where we really don’t want to make changes unless they are both absolutely necessary and the only way to fix it.

    The short reason is that to change an item that already exists in the game is something that we take a very pragmatic approach to and the last thing that anyone wants is an item to have the stats in flux. The reason it’s so hard to fix is because of the next paragraph here:

    Correct, this item is unique in its behavior (which is why I suspect this popped up to being with) as the system has a difficult time parsing these types of fringe cases. So just changing the heal over time % on it, while a solution, isn’t a viable one. Which is why I didn’t want to make the change after it was approved, I don’t want to intentionally nerf anything, and I don’t want to be hasty. I trust MA to help us to resolve this in a good way for all players.

    That’s the plan, but as a seasoned veteran of EU, you know that during the summer is a bit slower and we’re following our item philosophy in not making a bunch of rapid changes. So it’s not a matter of difficulty, but of nuance.

    It’s not something that was easily solvable. The majority of this time spent was trying to see why it broke in the first place, not trying to make changes (to reiterate something that we really don’t want to be doing) which didn’t pan out, now we are at the point where we're going to make a change.

    The last thing that we want to do is to nerf this item, and once I have more information as to the route we’re taking, I’ll make sure that it’s clear and firm.

    Cheers,
    Kris

    Thank you very much for taking the time, Kris. This particular issue is persistent and known for much longer than this summer holiday. I'm just struggling to find plausibility in what is (or can be) said publicy. But I hope not to be misunderstood in a way that I want to find fault with your team. There is a bigger context to everything, otherwise it would be ridiculous to get agitated over a single technical detail. I am positive that you know what I mean. I'll admit I'm more than just slightly burned from seeing behind the curtains in various business environments, and need to try and put conscious effort into detaching and detoxing, to enjoy what the game has to give as its original idea still stands. We're all doing the best we can.

    Cheers!

    Is the tezlapod pet a result of Mindark screwing around behind the scenes on this fix? [​IMG]

    i.e. is something siimlar to electrotherapy going to be implemented as additional buff on the fap?

    thats an interesting take. If it cant be coded for the current stuff maybe if the fap had this buff then you get what was advertised in some sense interesting point that could be a good theory there :p
