We need harder forums in general, I’m one-hitting virtually everything and even Re-Res don’t need any consumables on any forums once leveled up.

I very much agree with this. Something where it has nice .moar files, but each thread has health like the final Geronimo! thread and hits for 100+. Maybe make it a level 37 or something, so that just to enter attacks are weakened.

You might consider building in some sort of auto – damage on high level forums as well. Something where the penalty just for clicking the first thread is a 10%? 20%? damage hit to all your equipment.

Currently I am overkilling (by quite a bit) everything in one shot. This of course means that I have zero repair costs since the forums never have a chance to hit me back, and have zero consumable costs. I’m doing this on Cams and Hackers so far. I’m sure I’ll be able to tweak my trolls to do the same with a couple of .moar files. Not sure if my Emo will ever get the same thing because of the way their attacks work, but I haven’t had the free time to play with it and it’s at the lowest level of all my “done with Ep 2” characters.

Trying to create drama to drum up the ratings by any means necessary!

I don’t think it’s the forum level that’s the problem, I think it’s the new build costs. It’s so easy to get ridiculous offensive numbers as you level up. Maybe reducing the points earned from 5/level to 3/level would help balance across the board?

That would:

-hurt the low levels too much from my (limited!) experience, as the game seems to have sufficient difficulty on that end;

-not really make much of a change at the high end. If anything, I’d take two turns in stead of one to kill a thread if upgrades cost more and nothing else was changed. In fact I ran forums with 0 upgrades into offense and still met job board requirements.

I’d like an option to reset a character back to level 0 and re-play the game from the start.I already have a bunch of alts and don’t see the use in making more.

While that would be cool on one hand, it’s a bit tricky as it would allow you to go down seperate paths and get different clbum specific E-Peen. Maybe it would be feasible if it cost like 1 BP and took away all clbum E-Peen earned up to that point?

When dealing with the end game, I don’t think it’s a good idea to make things a chore.

I think it’s really cool to have some challenging forums, but then I thought invisible Faux News was entertaining. Realistically, besides a handful of peenwhores who ground the hell out of things *after* they finished Episode 1, how many players stopped running any visits? Forcibly making things take longer isn’t a good answer. Over the last few months all I’ve heard about is people not having enough time to run their characters. Most was in response to Domination talk, but I don’t see how that same lack of time wouldn’t have an impact on the job board or collecting .moar files. Currently if you get yourself to level 33 you can run any forum in under a minute. That is 15 minutes every 3 days to use all your visits, that is not bad for anyone regardless of available time.

Being able to 1 or 2 shot things is a very good thing for those with limited time or lack of attention span. BUT, as things are there is zero cost. Maybe that doesn’t matter. Maybe a simple flezz cap would solve everything. Maybe the whole thing shouldn’t be forum related at all. Perhaps once a player hits the level cap there should be a daily equipment degrading?

I do. I’m playing two characters through from the start: a hacker and a re-re. And both are having a MUCH easier time than before the Ep2 changes.

Boo!

1. Level 25?+ forums should have stronger attacks and a higher pwnage.

2. Equipment attributes might need to be reevaluated. I have rarely used a secondary stat consumable.

3. I have been awake for too long.

We still have to wait for real high level forums though.

I dunno if this has been mentioned anywhere but a good flezz sink might be to be able to buy more haxl resets (on top of the 1 per four days) for lots of flezz.

why not just make it so you have to buy haxl resets in the first place, but remove the time limit.

Signed.

However, it should be that you are locked into your clbum. You start as a Re-re, and although you can play as that clbum for as long as you want, you can only choose that alt’s previous clbum.

HOWEVER, if you want to pay 1-2 BP then you are allowed to re-pick your clbum on the next ‘reincarnation’ and from then on you can pick any clbum that has been so ‘unlocked’.

Does that sound reasonable?

On an unrelated note, is there even a point to the Tall Jungle **** store? Why bother buying a book when you get the best one for free an insignificant period of time later?

On Haxl resets: Have resets cost a level-dependent or percentage amount of your total  , but have that cost drop down to nothing over th course of 4 days. People with the   to spare WOULD spend it on respecs, but people who are strapped for cash would sit it out like always. Nobody suffers, nobody gains any real advantage,   is spent, and we can finally update the upgrade Wiki page properly.

Actually my hacker alt uses the Memoirs of a hacker hero book more than the free one simply because he tends to be lacking in Processing Power. Using that, .moar files, and the surgery, he still only has 230 (which at higher levels is more than enough).

Yes, I did so with my Hacker.

Was a LOT easier than EP1 playthrough with my troll.

hacker is the most powerful char, try it with a diff char and minimal deliveries and you wont be telling me its easier.

Send me BP and I’ll go all the way through EP 2 as a rere without even switching to permanoob.

(4 BP preferably so that I can get an avatar, I really don’t want to look at Jimmy that long)

Well, my major point was that most of the books suck, and the one you get for free is actually very good. It would have been much more logical to give people a ****ty book and have much better books available in the store.

Heck, I can even think of clbum themes; O’Reilly books for hackers, poetry for emokids, “For dummies” books for permanoobs, Dr Seuss books for Re-res, romance novels for Camwhores, and various ‘reference image’ books for trolls.

Also, here’s a   sink: Magazine subscriptions.

4200, Death (Bleeder’s Digest?), Buxom, CP Lamer, Lowlights for retards, and something for permanoobs that I can’t think of at the moment.
