I wish to ask a question of the developers - after the playtesting week, how do you find the combat/dialogue log? Can it be made more convenient and informative and how do you think it should be changed? I have a bunch of suggestions to make about the combat/dialogue log specifically, but I'm curious what your thoughts are.

Very happy with the new visuals, including icons and portraits :) While there are some effect glitches like the spells attaching themselves to affected characters, or the really big effect near the mill's wheel, minute things like the redesigned selection circles or apparently modified character faces/eyes make for a much better impression :)

The selection circles are functionally worse. Incoming suggestion to improve them.

They're also temporary

 

Kaz is trying out different indicators. I believe that build was made while he was in the middle of making another revision.

 

The selection circles and targeting indicators need to support displaying Engagement, so his iterations are working toward that.

No guarantees that changing them from what they were will make them better. v333 source code saved, ready to revert!

Obsidian, just a humble suggestion:

Do a few mini-patches for the pc, where rudimentary versions of various Disengagement solutions have been applied to the PoE BB

- then use the community to see which seem to work best as far as gameplay and combat pacing go.

 

If you do take this step, please act on this opportunity with haste, since X-Mas is coming up fast. Use your community - we love to serve. sorcerer.gif

or just remove it and spend that time on something more important
