    Default Thank you for E 3BC

    I had a lot of fun running the new revamped E 3BC yesterday.

    Plenty of new surprises and a lot of fun.

    Good job. And thanks for all the hard work.



    Heroic 3BC was dead. Partially because it was PtP, but mostly because it was out of the way and a level range that people go through pretty quick.

    This area needed new life, and we need all the epic content we can get.

    I'm not keen on epified pirates and other normal monsters, but well done and fun just the same.



    Are there bugs?
    Sure.

    As always I just ask to fix them as soon as you can.

    Nothing I have seen yet is game breaking.

    Are there things I might disagree with?
    Maybe.

    Are there things I wish were changed or wish were not changed?
    Probably.

    But doesn't mean I am not having tons of fun in this game.


    Thanks for 8+ years of great fun!

    Yup, thanks for all the bugs. My bags are borked and I'll spend less then a week in E 3BC.

    Awesome!

    I give this Trolling a 3/10. Too specific.

    I quite enjoy the new revamp. I hope no nerfing is done to the trap damage either.

    But maybe you should try another game? I'm sure you could find one without bugs that would be more agreeable to your tastes?

    Life is too short to play a game that causes so much frustration and bad feelings.

    Thank you!

    The traps are fine the way they are.

    It would be great if folks developed the life skill of being able to adapt and overcome difficulties in their path.

    It's easier to rage, critizie, and complain, than to find or work towards a solution for any given challenge unfortunately.

    TY. The effort and innovation to go above and beyond and have ship battles, bombardment, and boarding is fantastic. And traps that work.

    Yes, Thank you, lots of good fun to be had, new and different things.

    Still think you should allow pirates to attack guild ships when between 1 and 12 folk are on them - but don't let them destroy the AS amenities, only the plat ones.

    I'm sorta ok with the traps too.... as far as I know there are just three with super (like over 100 ) save required.

    Two of those are obviously intended to try to avoid and navigate through.

    The third can be jumped over, but I do not see why that one was set so high.

    Plenty of others can be saved and evaded against just fine.



    So... so far, I am ok with the traps... but... it does set a precedence that I do not like.

    Seems too many people complained about evasion and they just through some in to kill anyone.... Not the way I want things to be in the long run.

    But.... that is actually another subject.

    Anyway, love what ye did with the place..... lol

    Thanks again.

    You message is turning out to be complete hyperbole.

    While it has problems, the quests can still be run and provided hours of fun for me and my friends this weekend.

    I started to group with some guys and do the quests, but all they did was whine whine whine constantly about everything. Nothing was fun, if a trap was too easy it was stupid, if it was too hard it was ridiculous. I found another group and had a blast.

    Attitude is everything. Is the game perfect? No. Can you have fun? Certainly.

    If you're not having fun, do something else. It really is that simple.

    Huh... I logged in and the content was still there. So I don't think it was aborted. It lives!

    I really think the traps for e3bc is an upgrade to the challenge heroic 3bc brought.

    I still think they should update old quests with those snares.

    I got a full group going and we did the whole chain as one massively epic adventure. I have to say the game experience was pretty fantastic. Even if the replays never duplicate it, it was a great mashup that felt like a real saga well worth the effort. Its been a long time since I felt like I was immersed in one big story like a movie, rather than a menu of quests. I think this plays better as full story arc, which is where you get the full sense of variety of things to do. I played on a bit weak bard not quite specced for swashbuckler so I wasn't providing much dps help, but I was throwing out nice buffs, some heals and some mission critical fascinating at key points. We had a nice balanced party with a rogue and cleric. Some of us couldn't get through those traps, but some of use could and the group had the balance to get back up and past them. Dying in the traps disabused us of the notion early that we'd skate through with no deaths, which added to the fun.

    I give my first time experience 5 stars.

    Excellent work on 3BC, obviously not happy about the new bugs (or the old ones hehe) but really like the quests, loot, music etc. The new 3BC player area with quick access to airship and also allowing players to TP to quests after they have run it once is also great. I think you have taken alot of player feedback into account when taking 3BC to epic so thank you

    Thanks for E3BC.
    Finally I enjoyed new items, because I could actually loot them since they are BtA, not to mention that some of those items are really nice (I like boots, mitts, goggles).

    Also ship rares was fun, truly enjoyed it.

    A surprise in Prove Your Worth was nice! I hate spiked traps, like the ones in Crucible/Monastery/Reaver's Fate, similarly to Crucible need a good "swimmer" in Prove Your Worth, but you have more options here, like teleport hireling for rez and still continue.
    Reflex 80 failed on EH. Finally traps can actually hurt, and it's not even optional, someone has to make it.
    Traps DC should be lowered a bit IMO, but trap damage is OK though.

    For those who complain about E3BC: most U22 bugs has nothing to do with 3BC at all (except stuck bug).

    New quest was interesting. I like how those traps work on Boss ship.
    The damage from ballista/side cannons should be increased, I mean 4-5 hits should destroy non-boss ships, otherwise I see no point at all for using ballistas (or bother to repair them).

    What's to be thanful about 1 new quest and two decent items? Give this another week and it'll be just as dead as heroic 3BC.

    It was free bonus for those who already had the pack. The pack price is still similar and worth the price since this pack now has epic too. Some quests were redesigned.
    Ship battle idea is a totally new concept, and a nice idea.
    And we've got some decent BtA items.

    What else do you want?
