  1. Very disspapointed Obs have not ficed the EXP gain ussuw witht this game. Hitting max level 50-60% of the way through tthe game is really really studid game design Are there any mods to fox this? A mod that did a 15% exp penalty would be a good way to start?
  2. Can a Dev please let us know what will happen if we start a play-through now in the patch beta and we want to start forgotten sanctum when it releases? Are you sure it will be compatible?
  3. So it appears that no more news has come out about BG3. You would have thought that some journalist would have found some more information by now. All we had was on tweet from that avellon guy and thats it? Has anyone else heard anymore about it being in production? I am personaly going to right it off as being a rumor
  4. The reviews have allways been high for Deadfire. It is currently and allways has been since release the top rated RPG on metacritic for 2018. Tied with Monster Hunter World. For some reason that is not translating across into sales.
  5. Its a completely different feel i think. Maybe this is becasue of the setting though? Finaly out of the Mediterranean and back to reality?
  6. Very Good DLC IMO. But now it has 100% been officially confirmed that the level cap will not be being raised and there will be no new power levels? Otherwise they would have stated that in this announcement surely. So now i have to find the best mod to fix this........ahhhhhh
  7. Are you referring to the evidence where obsidian reused nearly all the same spells and abilities from the first game and then made evryone start from level one and reuse them again or are you talking about other evidence?
  8. Just like previews two DLC it is a smaller addition, and it is unlikely they will be adding something as big as extra levels. When asked about the extra XP on one of the streams one of the devs said they might look at readjusting XP gain once all DLCs are released. Whenever it will happen remains to be seen. Just the sheer fact that Obsidian have to " Have a meeting" and " Discuss the issue" with people hitting the level cap at 50% of the game completed says alot. It shoud never have gotten to this ridiculous situation in the first place. People play these games mainly for power
  9. Looks like he has been badly misled by youtubers, because though spells/abilities are often "the same", or seem so, PoE 2 differs from 1 quite substantially (unlike in case of BG1/2, let alone their EE versions). If that was the only beef he had with Deadfire, he can buy it, no worries. Anyway, I would prefer starting from level 1 even if it did not differ, because RPG systems invariantly work best at lower levels and only get worse the further one progresses, so I am happy with Deadfire not mimicking BG2. He wasnt mislead by YT. The spells for Wizards, Druids, Priests, Ciphers are a
  10. If you don't use XP reduction mods and complete all of the bounties, you'll hit the cap at about 65-70% of the game. That was before the release of the three expanaions. Yeah i agree with you. In my last playthrough (when only the beast of Winter was released) i hit max level at about 65% of the game completed. So after two more expansions you will hit max level at around 50%. Again people wonder why the game isnt selling well when there are stupid game implementations like this
  11. So i just spoke to one of my old buddies who also enjoys playing CRPGs. I asked him if he had played deadfire and he said this: “ No i havent purchased the game and I probably wont end up purchasing it. I dont see the point in buying the game because you have to start all over again at level 1 just like i did in POE1. In the baldurs gate series i was able to continue advancing my character after he hit the level 9 level cap In bg1 and then continue to advance him to around level 20 in bg2. I watched youtube videos of game reviewers reviewing deadfire and was very dissapointed to see that o
  12. Are they going to raise the level cap and introduce another power level ? Hitting the max level 20 with 50% of the game left is just stupid game making implementation that beggars any kind of realistic belief.
  13. What ever did Gromnir do to you to warrant a parallel to the Next Iteration? Gromnir usually brings interesting and varied stuff (and never breaks character!), while the Iteration does not even have a sound argument, it has a personal grudge that it repeats ad nauseam. QED (bolded by me): Dude. I noticed. I noticed after the first 10 times you wrote that. And that's exactly why I dismiss it -- you offer personal, emotional issues and assert those are objective arguments. Furthermore, you fault Obsidian for doing their own thing instead of Ctrl+C Ctrl+V, you claim that copypasta is
  14. The good news is that Wizards of the Coast are about to announce three major PC games set in the Forgotten Reams. Im praying one of them is a CRPG like BG2
  15. Wael knows we (the incarnations of bigbazoopa and me) had our quarrels, but I think once forum people bring up good arguments (form aside) it's worth discussing them. I also don't believe in excluding people generally and completely out of animosity. I don't hold grudges (I mean in these "forum cases"). For example I couldn't talk to Gromnir anymore if I'd close the door after clashing with him. Now that would be a shame, wouldn't it? Some of the people we clash with actually post very viable things. The one thing you guys need to understand is is that I criticize Obsidian alot
  16. Thats right bro. If you pretend really hard and be extremely delusional then you can dismiss everything i say as being irrelevant because you are a fanboi first and foremost. Oh but now that the media is starting to spread the news like wildfire you may have some issues with your little head in the sand trick. https://news.google.com/articles/CAIiEICDEMlbWtMhg3OZEsoMjWQqGQgEKhAIACoHCAown7CHCzDu8YUDMMONmAY?hl=en-AU&gl=AU&ceid=AU%3Aen https://www.onlysp.com/pillars-of-eternity-ii-sales-below-expectations/ https://news.google.com/articles/CBMiXWh0dHBzOi8vd3d3LmdhbWV6b25lL
  17. Kingmaker has the advantage of piggybacking off of very well-known IP/game system (Pathfinder), whereas PoE even after the success of PoE1 is still a niche system. Where'd you come up with the 14m budget number? Very interesting if true. Divinity Original Sin 2 did not have the advantage of " Piggy Backing" of a Dungeons and Dragons or Pathfinder type Intellectual Property and everyone knows how well DOS2 is doing so i understand your argument there but i also dismiss it as i believe the DOS2 situation has proved your point irrelevant. The $14,000,000 was clarified to the fig b
  18. Well Pathfinder Kingmaker is still going strong on the steam charts. Currently as we speak it is sitting on page 4 of the top sellers prior to this it was on the first page for a long time. Deadfire dropped right off the charts as soon as it was released. The popularity and unbelievable success of Kingmaker shows that the market is not fatigued with RTWP RPGS. The salient facts are that people where put off buying deadfire. These are facts. On the codex forum Fig investors have claimed that deadfire currently has only sold around 150k copies (not including backers copies) and a large port
  19. There is a thread on the RPG codex site where people have confirmed that the staff at Obsidian who have "left" where in fact fired because Deadfire didnt make sales targets. If you read through the thread you will also see numerous posts removed at the request of Obsidian's lawyers sending letters of demand to remove the posts. And yes one would assume Obsidian would be struggling to pay the bills atm hence the Microsoft buyout. Miscrosft will be getting a bargain here. I said that before deadfire was launched its success would hinge on whether or not the story was immersive. Dea
  20. Also the current pen vs ar system is terrible. You will notice a quantam leap in difficulty drop off as soon as you suit up your tanks in legendary armour. You can get legendary armour way to early they should be rarer. I’m a really big hater of the current pen vs at system cause it is way to dominant a game mechanic
  21. I don’t think anyone has forgotten anything. So what class do you think is weakest and why?
  22. Yeah i agree i have never been able to make a melee barbarian work. There are just so many other better options out there. Look at monk for example they get +5 dex and +15% action speed with swidt flurry with no deflection penalty. I would take this over frenzy any day.
  23. Deadly deadfire is really good. It has a 28-% exp penalty attached though which is a bit to high. I wish it was 20%
  24. Surely bg3 wont be first person crap like witcher? It will be a crpg like bg2 . Why would they call it Baldurs gate if it wasnt
