    Default Same mistakes made by Trion that every other MMO has made

    I have to ask when a gaming company is going to learn from the mistakes made by all those who went before them. I really had hopes with Trion, but it appears to me as though they haven't learned from every other MMO out there.

    A few things:

    1. I HATE HATE HATE the amount of CC in this game. I thought is was absolutely redicilous. However, the changes being proposed by Trion are so extremely heavy handed that it is essentially going to render CC irrelevant. This is absolutely not what I wanted. What I wanted was viable CC that required thought to use... to eliminate the facerolling CC smashers. What Trion is giving us is absolutely gutted and worthless CC. For gods sakes ...snares on the same immunity timer as the others? Stun and mez sharing immunity? WTF? At least group them logically into more groups/immunity timers and perhaps make the immunity dependant on the length of the original CC.

    2. Clerics needed a nerf. I absolutely agree and have been saying it for weeks because of the stacking mitigation. Let me give an example, Blessing of the MArtyr was BROKEN because it didnt work as the tooltip stated. Chances are, if it actually worked correctly, it wouldnt have been too much. Rather than fix the ability and see how it plays out, you took the lazy way and replaced it. Shell was grossly OP ...and rendered people practically unkillable. However with the stupid CC changes in #1 above ....you are hardly ever going to be CC'd anymore, which means Shell wont be constantly up. If you had simply tweaked Shell so it only worked while actually CC'd instead of a full 8s, you could have avoided gutted an entire PvP soul AND alleviated the valid complaints by the player base.

    3. Really, I can go on with many of the other changes you have made or proposing to make. The heavy handed approach, is not only stupid, but has been proven to be a mistake over and over for the last decade+ in the MMO industry. We ALL want balance ...but we definately do not want grossly heavy handed changed each and every patch. To be honest, you are never going to balance the game with all its speccing options with this rookie approach. Revolutionizing gaming? You are already failing Trion ...you are just reading down the same path everyone else has.

    1) There was has been no form of CC in Asheron's Call in over a decade.
    2) There have been no clerics in Asheron's Call for over a decade.

    Generalization fail.

    Asheron's Call sucked .... what is your point?

    Besides clerics and cc changes wasn't my point, the heavy handed changes were.

    QQ that a gaming company keeps making heavy handed changes giving up any hope of ever actually balancing the game given all the soul combinations in it ....rather than minor, frequent tweaks to bring things into balance?

    Yeah ..I will QQ, I had hopes for this game.

    Whining, raging, and not even able to keep their story straight.


    Your post is constructive as well as your defensive snappings at other posters.

    What exactly did you think you were going to accomplish today? I really don't see anyone planning to side with your high pitch whines anytime soon.

    Forum QQ is a form of attempted CC...

    ...the folks are just trying to get it in before the changes.
