@Skaul: I’d hardly call my comment abrasive. I simply asked for remedial comments, like yours, to be omitted. I even asked please. Your comment was hardly needed, as you included the little cool sunglasses dude. You knew what you were doing when you posted that, let’s be honest. I know you are popular here on the boards as you are a great help to new people, so I get it. But either way, you knew what you were getting in to with that post lol. I am not in the know on who works for who and only know Refia as someone affiliated with DQ. Maybe next time you can think twice before trying to bait as well. It might help others from being “abrasive” and hurting your feelings. Having said that, if I in fact DID hurt your feelings, please accept my apology. Nothing more I can say really as it wasn’t my intention.
@CuzegSpiked: I’d agree with you on Cerbral Vortex but that can be blocked and dodged as I have come to find out. Funny but my defense to those builds is to simply not fight it. They spam me with Torrent and I block and dodge it, which in turn does them damage. Hyyy is a perfect example. He has an extremely tough build but his weakness is in fact his strength. His computer controlled ai is not smart enough to move OUT of the torrent. Bleed and Fire dots are in fact, unblockable and undodgeable. (at least in my experience) once it’s on, it ticks for an extremely high damage with no defense. If it was defendable then we’d have a different discussion. But for someone to simply cast a Skulldraga then not fight at all while the little icon hits once and starts a 100% train of undefendable fire and bleed dots is way over the top in my opinion. Maybe I am alone on this whole wanting balance thing. I know you were one of the players who used the default bug to get to the top, so maybe that is your way. don’t read into that comment as an insult, I am just using that as an example. but, I love and prefer balanced matches. maybe i am alone on that one. The most fun I have is to fight players like cronos, odb2, madbad, and ajojl or something like that. we always end in 3-2 one way or another. very balanced battles. I am not sure what you mean by frustration. Maybe you can elaborate on that.
@f00kee: Id hardly call 95% damage reduction with 42K health weak on defense. It is certainly above the average of what I see at the top. I’ll simply use your fire dot bleed build. It is weak compared to the others. You tick for 6K crit at best, which seems right on par with What I’d expect from a damage over time. you are an easy 3-0 compared to the other fire dot builds and my defense to damage ratio seems to be perfect against you. stacking more defense to lose damage would simply not be an option as I still wouldn’t do enough damage to catch up to the massive bleed fire dots. I could flip it and say you need more power but you’d have to lose what little defense you have already which would make you an even easier fight. see my point? I’ll use cronos. He has an extremely high HP count but his power is weak. I can normally override his high health with my power as my balance of defense and health will keep me alive long enough to win. him and I always win or lose with a sliver of health left on each of us, one way or another. that to me, is perfect balance. every time I see his name as a fight, I smile as I know I have to do everything perfect to win. With you, it’s not the same.
@Ijyupe: simply running away isn’t an option with skulldraga. it parks and once it hits fire dot and bleed dot is undefendable. if I could in fact kite then this wouldn’t be a problem. hopefully some of you will make it up to the top and fight some of these 30K 60K crit fire bleed builds then you will see. Trust me, I didn’t see anything this high until I got to the top of eternal. so I challenge you to make it to the top and post screenshots of you mopping the floor against kissmyaxe, tbjgh or whatever it is and rolling. if you are already at the top, please don’t be shy and post your character name. maybe we have fought already and I can comment on your build.
Let’s get one thing straight, I had a massive bleed dot fire dot build too. I jumped off the bandwagon in the top 10 and made it to 1 using a simple damage / defense build. But I have screnshots of my 11K bleed dots too. This is about game balance as a whole. having 100% crittalbe undefendable 30K+ bleed and fire dots ticking for a 30 second fight is just my opinion, over the top. oh well… I said my peace. if the devs or whoever feel this discussion is not worthy feel free to lock the thread and i’ll accept the battle arena for what you have it at. no hard feelings either way i’ll just move on.
thanks or the discussion.
