05/25/2018 02:49 PMPosted by Arms32312 Thanks for the reply I was wondering which forums had more messages from the devs due to hearing awhile ago it was on reddit.

The thing is we don't really view it as a competition between platforms. For us what's important is getting out there in front of our players in any and every way that we can. We want to make sure you know we care and we're listening, and share as much insight as possible into what we're doing with the game and why.
Having time to reply depends heavily on our workload, but we do look at the forums daily =)

Posting is voluntary and has to be balanced with primary work responsibilities, and as I'm sure you can appreciate isn't always easy. With that in mind we encourage team members who volunteer to communicate wherever they feel they can be most effective.

However we've definitely gotten the message that hearing from us more regularly is important, and we're working to improve the consistency of our communication across all channels where we're active. I'm hopeful that you'll be able to enjoy the benefits of those efforts in the future.

As always please share any constructive feedback you have, and we'll keep on reading it even if we're not always able to respond.

I completely agree - unfortunately, adding filters for this is not as easy as most people think. Smarter people than I are working on making these things happen =D

Thanks for taking the time to post this :)

We are always reading the forums and are forever dedicated to improving the Nexus for both casual and hardcore gamers alike.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

Hey there!

Like we mentioned in the dev video, we have a linear story that we're telling over the course of this year, but not every content drop will fall into that storyline. Nexomania is a good example of a divergence. That being said, we do treat each of these content drops as legit canonical elements inside the Nexus. It's all real. :)

The next contribution to the story started with our first comic, will come with our next content drop.

05/23/2018 07:15 PMPosted by Blitz When I see a lineup of new skins, with an awesome theme and effort's been put into them, I'd like to support the developers by buying it. But when the the only paths to take to get the skin I like is essentially "Pay $35 and get a bunch of stuff you don't want, or use that money and gamble" I am not happy about that at all and no longer desire to support the game.

Bundles used to be "Get all these things, and if you buy them all at once you get a little discount. Thanks for the support!" But now, you can't even buy individual skins. And good luck having enough in-game currency to get your hands on anything above 400 shards. I was excited for this nexomania update, but after seeing the cost of the bundles, the lack of smaller individual character bundles, and a lack of altered voice overs considering the cost of these bundles. I'm left feeling like they're only after the impulse purchases rather than providing a fairly priced and quality made product.

I will not be purchasing any loot boxes, or any bundles for this event based on these opinions. And I sincerely hope others feel the same: because I really wanted to support this one.


I would encourage you to scope out this blog post we just released!

Thank you so much for your feedback. We truly appreciate it.

GLHF,

** Edit -- I see some of y'all beat me to it! Pardon the double-down on info.
Glad to see really good discussion coming out of this. Thanks everyone!

A few quick thoughts on main points-
  • The goal here isn't to make Chromie weaker. A Hero can feel distinct and powerful to play as, and still be fun to play against.
  • We've already seen feedback on playing against Chromie and it's the reason we're having these discussions. The question I posed earlier is focused on the perspective of playing as Chromie, and what makes her feel fun/unique to you personally.
  • Looking through the replies so far, I already see some consistent themes bubbling up, which is great.

While I can't speak to what changes may or may not happen at this point, I love that we're getting so much player feedback on this and we'll be keeping it in mind as we talk about potential future plans for Chromie.

Really cool! Cosplay of the games we make is one of my favorite things to see. Especially at Blizzcon! Are you going to be at Blizzcon this year?

To be honest I had someone pick for me because I felt like I couldn't make the decision myself. The team crushed it and it is hard to pick a single side.

Spyrian submitted Nexomania out!

Hi u/SheevSyndicate!

You're correct. The Hell’s Screamers, Match of the Century, and Sun’s Out 2017 bundles will all be available until June 11. There aren't any surprise bundles coming later during Nexomania, so if you decide to pick one up you should be safe choosing from those three.

Also, your post made us realize we hadn't listed the end-date for these bundles and the patch notes are being corrected. So, thank you for bringing attention to this!

Keep it up! Did you choose Lunara for the event?

Hi guys. Razorgrin will be out later this month :) In the meantime I hope you enjoy Nexomania!

Chromie is a tricky one because there's no single element of her kit that pushes her over the line in terms of feeling frustrating to play against. She's also pretty balanced overall, so simply making her weaker isn't a great option.

Put simply, the challenge for us here is-
  • Change her enough that she feels noticeably more interactive for opponents.
  • Don't change her so much that she loses her identity - she should still feel like Chromie.
  • Figure out how to compensate loss of power from the removal of frustrating elements, without pushing her right back over the line in a different way.

There are many ways we could address the first and third items on that list, but the second one is where things get a bit more difficult. So with that I'd pose the question to you Chromie players out there:

Which parts of Chromie do you feel are core to her identity and which would you feel comfortable seeing changed (assuming she got something else in return)? Is it her long range that defines her? Her burst damage? Her ability to scale hard if she does well on her Quest? Her disruption via Time Traps and Slowing Sands? Some combination of these or something else entirely?

GOOD POINT BUT NOT SHARP AS SONYA SPEAR

Valid Argument. Man Election Tuesday is gonna be rough.

I shall fear the Dothraki the day they teach their horses to run on water.
