Reduced weight -> easier to handle crushthrough in all situations bar pushing walls or breaches in sieges

I used to be able to block it. Stop it entirely. Bounce it off my shield as if it were any other attack. That was easier to handle. I might be slightly more nimble now, but I don't think this buff to crushthrough was intended.

i will take few days to think about it but i will probably quit the mod and ask for a permaban to never come again

Crossbows get nerfed again, this time with heavy restrictions for hybrids
Blackbow: it's not enough! more nerfs! more more!

Throwing gets a nerf that will probably be adjusted with coming patches
Blackbow: You DARE nerf something I use? This is bullshit! Favoritism! I quit!

Do us all a favor

The mod will be better off when we have fewer people crying for nerfs.

Could heavy shields receive some kind of buff against crushthrough? I didn't realize weight was first reduced many, many, many patches ago, and I had been wondering why I couldn't stand against the plague of long maulers that were roaming around when the mod was revived. Even though weight was reduced, being able to block mauls should still be a benefit of the heavier shields. It was a nice little bonus to have, and it gave maulers something to have to play around.

The fact is we have all been playing this game for at least 5 years now

Both your renown and infamy are in the single digits, and your first post is from 2016.

Were the Soldier's and Military Cleavers nerfed or buffed then? Military cleaver is underused for its price, and terrible at everything besides having high cut. Why nerf its only use?

My question wasn't answered. Maybe there's no easy way to know the answer? This is why I asked: I think we should be fully reverted, but I also don't think those 35+ levels should have their benefits removed. I don't think we have enough players capable of, and focused on, reaching those levels anytime soon. There are some, but not enough for it to matter. Those people are reaching for the stars. Personally, if you told me those stars contained nothing but Iron Flesh, it would ruin a lot of the joy of getting that far. I doubt there are more than 10 people still playing that could realistically reach those levels. I say let them have their cake and eat it too.

Honestly, this should have been an option in the poll.

If you combine both "yes" choices, "yes" and "no" are currently tied. "Other options" is currently winning, and I don't think anyone in the thread has been opposed to that.

but everyone has basically unlimited money at this point :( so the upkeep doesn't really matter so much

That's a separate issue that needs to be addressed. Maybe if they removed gold and all need for it, items could be balanced differently.

Turnrate nerf was good for the mod. Keep it.

Bunch of Europeans arguing over something only Americans can approve and implement. Europeans have no devs in this anymore, nor any semblance of influence.

That's how NA players felt for years.

If you will wipe; you have to wipe everything
Why does it have to be all or nothing?

Before I even looked at the pictures, I knew why your reasoning was flawed. Look at the difference in upkeep. Javelins cost twice as much. That's a significant change in the throwing catagory. Of course javelins are objectively better.

Hmmm, I actually find this puritanical approach pretty convincing.

Also that players shouldnt be able to spend gold on looms like you say. IMO even with your suggestion, as long as there are market sharks there will be some people who never have to worry about gold or upkeep. Which is unfair to the grinders. So should the market in general be limited?

I personally believe the market was the single worst addition to the mod. It made chadz and crew lazy. They used it as an excuse to not deal with some problems, and it's part of the reason gold is so out of control today. It's too late to straight up remove it, but it needs to be reined in. Getting rid of booths is a good start. I like loom exchanges, but not the idea of selling loom points. I liked it when the amount of looms you had was directly related to your gen. It felt more personal back then. If they add more gold sinks, but also limit the ways the market makes some players super rich, they can then attempt to balance gold gain.

all that does is completely fucking ruin every single build anyone has ever made as they now cannot use any gear due to the fact that they don't have enough money left to handle repairs

That's exactly why we have repairs, and why wiping gold is being considered. You're not supposed to be able to equip all of the best gear without repercussion. You should be worried about putting a dent in your pocket. You're supposed to ask yourself, "can I afford to wear full plate this round? As someone who has been perpetually poor through the years, I assure you it is possible to still play and not worry. My normal gear is 2,836 upkeep.

I also have a problem with the alternatives idea. Allowing players to buy looms with gold was a big mistake, and part of the reason some players stopped retiring. They can keep leveling past level 31, knowing they can buy looms if they really need to. There should be only one way to earn looms outside of special occasions (like the christmas looms we were given). You should be giving up something when you choose to stop retiring. Looms lost a lot of value and wonder once the marketplace was introduced.

Also, it upsets me to see that blackbow has made some enemies here. I agree that he comes too agressive with his posts, but give the guy a break.

He brings it on himself. If he actually trying to have a constructive argument, he's awful at it. If he thinks bows are too weak, he should campaign to have them buffed instead of complaining about crossbows. The worst thing he could do is accuse of the balance team of unethical practices when they're actually replying to him. He just turns them away and makes sure he won't be heard in the future.
