  1. So your suggestion for buffing Gas is... to nerf gas against Infested, and leave gas unchanged versus everything else. 🤔
  2. +1. Even if we're restricted within the same 4 activators (E, W+E, Aim+E, W+Aim+E), I would love the ability to edit combo inputs for certain stances. Iron Phoenix especially-- it would feel so good to use if the Forward and Neutral combos weren't completely backwards for some reason.
  3. I just tested it out a little bit, and.... kind of? Bleeding Willow's overhead swing can score headshots on enemies that are somewhat far away (but not so much on targets directly in front of you), which does a crapton of damage if you land a Slash proc. It's a bit wonky, though, since the narrow hitbox is positioned a few feet to the left of the crosshair, so you'll always have to aim a bit to the right of whatever you're trying to headshot. On the other hand, Shimmering Blight's twirly-twirly spin lands a crapton of headshots on everything around you. I'm not sure what the ratio of headshots to not-headshots is or anything, but even if it's less reliable than Bleeding Willow, the fact that you're hitting so many times (against a single target, let alone a huge crowd around you) means that Condition Overload is going to be kicking in for most of the hits. And you're proccing Slash more often. I guess what I'm trying to say is that Bleeding Willow needs some love 😂
  4. I have mixed feelings about this, as someone who has sworn by polearms for years. Before the rework, I definitely would've preferred that Primed Reach had an additive and a multiplicative component (e.g. +50% reach & +2m final reach at max rank) so that polearms/staves feel longer than other categories even when fully upgraded. Now that the rework actually happened, though... I dunno. The current system is awesome because the base range of the weapon still matters, but not to the point that players feel locked into polearms/staves if they want wide reach. Players can freely select melee types without feeling like they're horribly gimping themselves range-wise (fists/sparring aside). I feel as though reintroducing any multiplicative component would just bring the polearm meta back. Slightly off-topic, but: I would like Reach mods to make melee hitboxes thicker once again (in addition to being longer), so we can have a bit more freedom with stances as well. Like, I really want to use Bleeding Willow for my polearms since it looks and feels better than Shimmering Blight IMO, but the overhead swing (W+Block) is completely unable to hit enemies about a foot to either side no matter how much Range you stack.
  5. Basically, yeah. And to a surprising degree of success. To my understanding, they wrote a bot that alerted them on their clan Discord whenever high-demand rivens with certain stat combinations were appearing below a certain price threshold, and then buying the rivens (using bots iirc?) -> reselling them for absurd prices, which drove up prices for high-demand rivens by a completely insane amount. Semlar created a bot that also detected riven prices in trade chat, but with the intention of being available for any player to use, so that players could buy+sell rivens more easily. The self-proclaimed "riven mafia" clan mass-reported him and got his bot account banned. As someone else posted above, DE responded to the situation by making riven trade data publicly available so that folks like Semlar could create useful tools for the community. There was this whole reddit drama schtick around a year ago. You could probably find more details with google if you really wanted to.
  6. +1. We should be able to freely disassemble any modular weapon that hasn't been gilded. As in, destroy the weapon and get its three component parts refunded into our inventory.
  7. Honestly, I've been struggling to find a reason to use anything that isn't the Tombfinger. - Easy to use, and hits like a truck. - Can combine Radiation+Corrosive damage, which lets it hit fairly hard against any armored target. - Ludicrously fast reloading with Pax Charge, and you can swing your melee weapon around instead of needing to wait out a reload animation without doing anything. - Deceptively good status chance, even when crafted purely for crits. (Every shot will roll for a status proc on both the projectile and the explosion, so you effectively have ~2x the listed Status chance.) - Great at any range. - The tiny AoE is a nice bonus when you shoot at one enemy but kill three of them by accident.
  8. Yep. Black people are literally being murdered in the street and in their homes by police, and after centuries of continued oppression, some Americans are finally warming up to this revolutionary new idea that Black lives do, indeed, matter. ... Which, if you'll believe 90% of posters in this thread, is somehow discriminatory against white people and other ethnicities? Yeesh.
  9. LOOOOOOOOL Ah yes. The "whitewashed" version of MLK that's apparently taught in some American schools. The one who apparently never discussed race. The one who wanted black people to just sit there and wait for their oppressors to change their minds. The one who would never have said something like this: I think America must see that riots do not develop out of thin air. Certain conditions continue to exist in our society which must be condemned as vigorously as we condemn riots. But in the final analysis, a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it that America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the Negro poor has worsened over the last few years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice, equality, and humanity. And so in a real sense our nation’s summers of riots are caused by our nation’s winters of delay. And as long as America postpones justice, we stand in the position of having these recurrences of violence and riots over and over again. Social justice and progress are the absolute guarantors of riot prevention. - Martin Luther King, Jr.
  10. Assuming you're actually not familiar with the topic: BLM isn't "black lives are the only ones that matter", but rather "black lives do, in fact, matter". Think about it this way: you have a child who hasn't eaten his vegetables at the dinner table since birth. You tell him that he should eat his veggies (#EatYourVeggies). He instead looks at you dead in the eye and wisely says that he needs to eat all of his food (#EatAllYourFood) but goes on about as usual. When you tell your child that eating his veggies is important, it isn't to say that he should neglect everything else. It's that he's been treating his veggies particularly poorly, and it's time to treat them as well as he does the rest of his food. EDIT: Aaaaaand, as expected, he ignored this entirely but continues to argue against BLM below. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  11. - As has already been said repeatedly, this is not a political issue. People shouldn't get murdered due to the colour of their skin. Simple as that. - This is the News section of their own damn forum. Believe it or not, "We're not doing devstreams this week, and here's why" is 100% relevant and 100% belongs here. - lol, yall are still going on with the "I don't want politics in my video game" shtick despite actively engaging in the topic of your own accord. Yikes, my dude.
  12. Amen. The amount of "all lives matter!" / "BLM is racist because it largely focuses on black people!" junk that has filled up this thread is frankly nauseating. People like the ones dominating this thread are why the #BlackLivesMatter movement is necessary in the first place. People who play the card of caring about all lives equally, while simultaneously trying to quash/derail any conversation about the continued mistreatment of black Americans by ignorant/hateful people in positions of power. People who claim to not be racist, yet become eerily upset with DE expressing support for victims of racial violence. Y'all are disappointing. Be better. Relevant quote that may be worth reading: First, I must confess that over the last few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of goodwill is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection. - Martin Luther King, Jr. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ EDIT: Just to clarify-- I totally understand that most of us (regardless of political views) want to keep politics out of our video games. The topic of racists in power targeting minorities is something that everyone (especially Americans) should be discussing right about now, but I get if we don't want to think about these realities while playing video games. That being said: You (the people filling this thread with #alllivesmatter and such) are in the News section of a forum. This is literally not in the video game. You are literally engaging in the topic rather than just avoiding it like you say you want to. People are dying for no reason other than the colour of their skin. As @(PS4)reddragonhrcro said before the thread was cleaned, this is a human rights issue, not a political one. If you do think that "people shouldn't get murdered for having a skin colour" is a political message, and if by some tragedy you disagree with this message, then now is probably a good time for some self-reflection.
  13. (I realize that this is a bit premature, since it'll be a while before anyone even unlocks this item.) Basically what the title says-- the Frakta shoulder guard (absolutely gorgeous, btw) isn't positioned symmetrically. Specifically, the right shoulder guard seems slightly "rolled" towards the chest compared to the left shoulder, which (on top of looking wonky due to the unintended asymmetry) causes it to clip with bulky chest armors like Saturn Six chest guard. I have it shown here on a Mag Prime, but the exact same issue is present on the other frames that I checked as well-- Equinox, Umbra, Rhino Palatine, Wukong Prime, Wukong Samadhi, etc. Hopefully this can be fixed before the item becomes obtainable!
  14. Never thought I'd see the day where Mire gets nerfed and Orthos Prime gets buffed. 🤔 EDIT: Also, #justiceforphageandphantasma
