  • CoE selling Legendary items for straight cash also unretiring Duke and Count packages

    Apparently, the first Legendary sold for $1250 is the Last Oasis Tavern

    "Going toe to toe with these skeletons is a very bad idea. Some are easy, but most are extremely difficult. They block your hits and knock half of your health out with one swing. Try to put distance between you and they pull out bows that do just as much damage. It’s insane. "



    Sounds to me like a halfway decent AI. You mean they didn't just stand there while you shot at them? How unfair!




    Imho there's good difficulty and there's bad difficulty.

    When game presents you with an challenge to overcome that's good difficulty, but when the game upps difficulty to keep you away from alternatives devs did not plan you to take that's bad difficulty.
    Sure.  Everyone would agree with that.  But perhaps it's something just not coming through in the article, but I would say that having an enemy actually adjust their tactics based on your own is a GOOD thing that is sorely missing in many/most/all of today's games.   Instead of standing there while you shoot them or "kite them" these skeletons apparently pull out their own bows to shoot you.  Sounds pretty good to me.

    I haven't played the game.  I did back it at the lowest Kickstarter level (like $20 I think) so I will give it a try one of these days.

     After all anyone can self nominate themselves as a power poster simply by posting a lot.  

    Perfect example:  Myself... I don't have a single credential yet I'm one of them, simply by posting a lot.  



    Actually no, you aren't.  Nobody I know gives the faintest credence to anything you post but most just hop in the thread for the chuckles.

    You are actually the greatest rebuttal to your own post.  You have about 5k posts and nobody treats you like an expert at anything...

  • CoE's concept in a nutshell

    I feel like that quote has been taken out of context. 
    You should go read it on Discord.  It's very enlightening.

    I think the best part is actually when Caspien is explaining how he started his first game company in 2008 to make CoE... but that and I quote "I started attending GDC, the Austin Game Conference and others, but sandbox games hadn't been invented yet and crowdfunding didn't exist. I couldn't even get a callback."

    And not a single one of the fawning worshipers would even question that statement.  Please... go and look it up from around 2AM eastern time this morning.  

    Not a single person in the Discord said anything.  They all just nodded about how Sandbox games hadn't even been invented yet in 2008. And piled on with comments like:

    "-keep going- were like a bunch of kindergarten students listening to story time"
    "This is fascinating as hell" 
    "We BELIEVE in you guys."
