Yeah, ok, some introduction. I’ve been playing this game since it was launched, in 2019. Back then, there was no paladin, no fisherman and so on. Party had 8 heroes, tops, and every time you’d get renown up onescale, you’d get something, until you reached 20 lvl. Game was bugged, crashed a lot, had pvp balancing issues and so on… I felt much more like a crash-test pilot than an actual player, so I did not spent cash on the game. I thought Ï’ll wait for them to flesh it out, make it a real, stable product before I throw in some cash".
And then, a year went by, and the problems are still the same.
It is a 700Mb game that still needs an internet connection to let you play versus bots. My heroes are somewhere between 19 (bard) and 14 (drow) levels, no renown gained in the last 6 months or so, since I’ve reached 20 renown - no ‘epic’ renown available, so to speak. So I play battle mode, and then the 18 lvl bot deals triple damage than my 19lvl straight up bard. All items maxed out, but still… bot deals it anyway she likes. That is a fixed system if I ever saw one: every round my oponent has cleric and bard, while I sit with 3 melee and the drow - who dies at the first contact with anything thrown at her direction.
I own a guild, Baldur’s Gate, people there pay for them VIP’s, and their stories are the same: stacked game, game is a fix, battle system is a fix, treasure chests system too much of a fix, no way to complete daily missions in a normal pace… and it is a 700Mb game, with a regular amount of updates and all. But is the developer really there?
So, please, let me now: do you guys even care anymore? Are you still trying to fix the bugs and de-fix the game (in the sense of making it more of a game experience, and less of a another-bot-win-for-the-machine kind of play)? Could you please adress those issues? Could you please let my paladin deal more damage than a bot-played paladin that’s 5 lvls lower than her? Would you please give me treasure chests compatible with game renonw? Because it is fairly frustrating when you need 2,500 common staves and the game gives you… 11.
There are so many issues, I do not even believe that you are there anymore. But, in case you are, here is my pledge: fix the game, and you’ll certainly see my money into it, even if it is just to award a work well done.
