  1. Agreed. The class is unplayable as it stands. Makes me even more salty about the ill-conceived decision to cram turn based in at the end -- took away any hope that the inevitable issues in the new sub-classes would ever be fixed. Oh well... I've moved on and there appears to be no reason to move back.
  2. I believe this to be the case. I believe that most game developers (and people in general) want to deliver as finished product as possible within given constraints. I do too and as a software developer myself I like to give my brethren in other domains the benefit of the doubt. So I hope this is what is playing out now and that the end result will be at least a semi-stable game. OTOH I reserve a special level of scorn for whoever it was that decided to prioritize TB at this point in the development cycle. These folks exist in all domains and they are always destructive (and while they are often less technical folks, that is not always the case and I don't know if it is true here or not).
  3. I stopped playing about 2 months ago when I reached the same conclusion. Rather than focusing on cleaning up the bugs that inevitably come when they add new core features (in this case the issues that came with the new sub-classes) and instead decided to use the last of their dev time on the TB stuff. The game is entering end-of-life and so they will naturally be winding down the dev team -- makes perfect sense. Also likely that the most skilled/senior folks will be the first to be moved on to other things. Why on earth would they drop this in at the end? I'm guessing it was motivated by sheer panic at the sales numbers and a sense of "well Divinity is TB and it did well -- we have this TB experiment someone did in their free time, let's drop that out there as a beta". Too bad -- POE1 settled into quite a nice end state (not perfect, but nothing this complex ever is) and Deadfire was headed in the same direction, until this. I keep poking my head back in to see if a patch has been released that pulls it back from the brink, but no such luck. Oh well... was fun while it lasted... EDIT -- just noticed the Gromnir said the same thing, much more effectively... so read his again . EDIT2 -- doubled checked with Steam and it had actually been since 1/26 that I fired up the game (time flies...).
  4. Heya QA folks -- any word on this one. I see that it is still an issue after the last 2 patches. TIA for any info.
  5. It's worse than that -- you can actually one shot things you shouldn't be able too -- see https://forums.obsidian.net/topic/108177-auto-kills-out-stealth/
  6. I'm seeing something very odd in my TB game. Playing on PotD in the first cave. Eder and I are in stealth, my MC is a Fury/Furyshaper armed with a rod with the modal on. I initiate combat with the Rotghast on the platform. The animation shows a stutter which almost looks like multiple attacks, the combat log shows a single attack hitting for 11 damage. The Rotghast is dead. At that point my character is no longer in stealth, but combat has not been initiated. So I re-stealth and attack the Revenant. Same result -- small stutter, one attack hitting for 20 and dead Revenant. I'm assuming this is a bug since there is no way things should be dying that fast on this difficulty level.
  7. I have not seen it since at least 3.x (and maybe earlier). So AFAICT, yes, it is fixed.
  8. Yeah -- saw that, but given it was 2 weeks old I thought maybe that referred to the beta patch before the release (which clearly had things added to it). Don't want to be a pain, but I also would really like to play the sub-class (same thing goes for Forbidden Fist which right now is even more deeply broken).
  9. I started a turn mode game in 4.1 and I'm getting a near constant spew of "I don't think I can do that" or "I wish" or... basically any time I go to select a target if I hover for a split second I get the "not possible" dialog for that character.
  10. Thanks -- didn't see that. Reposted as https://forums.obsidian.net/topic/108172-what-purpose-does-pause-serve/ (since I didn't see the topic posted already)
  11. Reposted from the main tech support forum (apologies if this is a dup, but I didn't see a similar topic): Mostly just curious. In many of these games space bar is "end turn", but here we still get "pause". However, I'm not sure what purpose "pause" plays in a turn based combat system. I understand that I can tweak the key bindings, so no big deal, but it is still odd.
