You may have seen this blog update from the fearless creator of the game: http://blog.forumwarz.com/2008/11/18/game-balance-changes

Today I logged in to see some new adjustments to my best attacks. The changes are as follows:

Political Flamebait:

Before: 300 attack 3 refresh

Now: 350 attack 2 refresh

and

Shock Sites (refresh the same)

Before: 200 attack

Now: 220 attack

I personally like the change!

Ninja’d. Also, yes it is. 200-230 is great for when you have low ego.

tbh I think they should remove the silly low ego mechanic and make Emos a Camwhore/Troll hybrid… that mechanic has no place in EP2 anymore.

Then why not call it a hybrid clbum? I say they should nerf it a bit though ad make it. When under X ego instead of percents.

Emos got some good defense on their EP2 gear. Doesn’t make a difference on how low on Ego you need to be if you DON’T get low at all.

I think the mechanic is cool and it’s a different sauce for emos, but it’s poorly planned for EP2.

(purpose alt fail) That’s true. Plus with my idea people will just roll a low ego build. I say give emo kids a skill called somthing like “cut” and depending on how much “cut” buffs you have, you get some little damage boosts?(Damage boosts can’t last for long, may 2 or 3 turns?) Also I think it would be good to give it no refresh.

also wow i have no male reproductive organ

But they have to factor in defense too, For example trolls are really good at defense, so it makes sense if their attacks are weaker.

Hacker needs faster attacks imo. The refresh times are ridiculous.

Hackers can reach 4k damage because of the huge advantage with 4 Hardwares. They need a nerf, if anything.

I think the old refresh for Political Flamebait and other attacks was about right. The changes are making speedrunning even more boring.

There needs to be a option to skip hackers animations. I know it’s only a second or two, but I get board fast waiting for the animations to go by.

purely looking at the damage yeah, but they can only do it sparingly, as opposed to say, camwhores who can constantly do optimal damage. Also the processing power is kinda scarce for hackers, unless you sacrifice attack/defense for it (by equipping pp items).

If their power get nerfed at least the attacks need to be made faster

You don’t sacrifice anything by equipping a Finger Implant and you receive a good PP boost.

Say what? The only one that does that is scrmbl and even now I probably never use it (maybe unless I’m finishing off a forum that only needs a few more pwnage points, but then I’d probably just use sml instead)... Ipz is just a regular “make a disrupting post” style attack and all of the others take effect instantly… So what are you talking about, exactly?

of course, that’s the only exception but that’s only +100, compare to other clbumes which can get up to +600 bonus from their equipments without sacrifice. In that sense it is balanced I guess, except hackers have slower attacks.

Yeah, Fran was making the same point I was.

Emos may rise again if we have another “Challenge Forum,” but until then we’re just a gimped troll with no way to effectively speedrun since our ego tends to stay up.

I have 295 health and the only time I came close to dying was on one of the Praypal type forums with 20+ threads. Any high level forum I can’t speedrun because I have to use 2+ attacks on it, 2 attacks being if I get lucky and Recipies/Everybody Hurts manages to knock it out. And this is a pure Offense build, no expense spared to pump everything I have into offense.

Quite Frankly the best balancing act would be to give Emos the glbumes slot too. Then everyone has even ground on 1 equipment slot.
