I approve of the increase in our attack power. 3 refresh for Political Flamebait seemed a bit long compared to other Troll attacks.

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

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!

Now:

Political Flamebait:

400 attack 1 refresh

and

Shock Sites

280 attack (still 1 refresh)

I thought life after death refresh would go over the refresh on everybody hurts.

But on the bright side. Up to 6.8k on it.

Fetish Pics aren’t exactly broken, but the combination of bringing Fetish Pics down from 300 to 225 and Hand Bra down from 250 to 200 make me a sad player indeed, when combined with watching that other skill go up from 200ish to 400.

Now our high-end skills are Goosefat’s Recipe Book, then Hand Bra (sort of), then Fetish Pics, and there’s still no utility from the textual bumault tree, and the forums do so little damage these days that the recovery tree is lackluster at best.

With two dead-end trees, so to speak, Camwhores are relegated to using the same two attacks over and over again, and having those abilities downgraded without affecting the need for the other skills to be used leaves much to be desired.

Nice, now Camwhores can’t reach 2k Damage without sacrificing huge amounts of stats for Offense. 1,9k damage with Fetish Pics at 225 power and 100 Offense.

Removing the cannon part of the glbum cannon clbum is intended?

Don’t break what’s fine, thank you.

I don’t know what the hell ET is doing with Emo Kids either. Trying to compisate for our skill being useless now?

TBH they should just buff everyone to what the Camwhores were before. They did a good job on putting Trolls at the old Camwhore level, but managed to crush Camwhores in the process.

Put Camwhore back to what they were, keeps Trolls as it is now, nerf some Hacker attacks but decrease their refresh times, and remove the silly low ego Emo mechanic and compensate them.

Oh. God. NOOOOOO!

I don’t care about the late end strength decrease. I care about the late end processing power increase.

Hackers need no nerfing. They already had pretty weak end attacks (the second weakest, actually)

I have to agree with you. Either remove low ego thing, or give other clbumes skills to. Camwhores dmg increse depends on how much they attack(has fallbacks I know) Trolls are fine. Not sure what to do with hackers.

Also, what I think ET needs to do even though he’s got staticical data is open up a private chat with a select few people and talk to them about the balance and what should be done.

Yes. My attacks aren’t bouncing off now. I think the problem was with Trolls weaker attacks though. Anyways, QFT. Camwhore power haa been reduced too much.

Level 40 Emo Kid

Vile serpent! I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

Well technically the role of the camwhore has always been the healer clbum. At low levels the camwhore has pump me up that can keep them from having to use consumables as much. Later on NSFW can help get through levels 20-25 without needing to spend much on synthols or 5-HTP.

The problem is that level capped characters don’t need to heal at all and thus camwhore’s healing abilities become pointless. Under the previous regime they had the fastest and hardest hitting combos so they dominated speedrunning. Now with bumping trolls up and nerfing the camwhores they are actually going to be slightly slower overall than the troll. However both clbumes with full kit are going to be able to 1-hit virtually every forum so I’m not sure the nerf was as bad as people make it out to be.

Emos got buffed enough that they can one hit most forums without needing to be in the emo damage penalty. That is kinda nice although it will reduce the relevancy of the emo damage bonus even more.

Hackers are strange, they hit hard but they are also incredibly slow based on animations and refresh rates. However thier stats are totally bonkers at full kit.

So overall I’d say that the new changes made camwhores and emos roughly equal in power, trolls the most powerful clbum, and hackers somewhere behind those three. Permanoobs get no love D:

Level 35 Camwhore

“Legs Wide Open”

I don’t see why clbumes are being “balanced” the way they are. Forums are way too easy now and only offense counts: if we want to make the game more interesting, the first point of action would be to have forums that actually fight back. That way the Emo Ego mechanic can be made useful (read: over the top gamebreakingly overpowered), as well as Trolls’ high defense.

As in we’d have different clbumes with different strengths and weaknesses, and not just different background themes to look at while we mindlessly press 1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2… ad infinitum, which seems to be where we’re heading at the moment.
