It was something I looked back on, from the years of development and changes, that there was a lot of 'simplifying' game play, to try to cater to more players with, however I feel like it dropped a weight on our toe at the same time, because it became too simple, too easy, that it no longer was a challenge or a game to enjoy overcoming challenges in. I remember some of the greatest games I've ever played would also occasionally frustrate me. But not because I thought it was unfair, but because my skill wasn't good enough and it forced me to focus and try new things, come up with strategies to try and see what worked and what didn't. I mean, it's a game after all, dying won't end my existence in it. We just start over from the spawn point and carry on.
The past year, especially the skill update, was working towards implementing a few more rules to game play, here and there. Because I feel like we stripped too many out that removed the pleasure we used to experience from the very old days of ROSE. Back when we knew the fear of fighting a monster higher level than us or the kind of party we needed in order to properly take a King down. The Kings themselves may not have been extremely life threatening, but they took forever to take down.
As for the camper monster that pew pew enemies, that's something I want to see put in very badly, but we're lacking a couple key things to pull it off at the moment, but not too far off from it becoming a reality either. I think that would help place a bit of fairness behind potential camping matters.
i totally agree with you...i remember playing rose in beta and it taking me like 3 weeks to get to lvl 40 and i was so proud that i could finally use that rake hand i got from a drop and having to plan out my skills to make the best of what points i had to spend
it gets quite boring doing the same things in the same spots over and over and over again so i for one am looking forward to this change even tho i dont do much on the PVP side of the game its still gonna make things more interesting
P.S. leo ive been around rose for a long time and i dont do much posting on the forums but i would like to extend my thanks to you for doing what you have been doing for the game and trying to better our gaming experience with rose b/c its been a long time coming and youre doing a great job with it
