Rebalance Public Test Weekend #1

Greetings Defenders,

In just a few short hours we will be kicking-off the first public test weekend for the rebalance we have been discussing all month. Starting tonight at 8pm we will be rolling out the rebalance patch. It will stay live until Monday morning at 11:30am when we roll the live client back to the previous version.

What this means for you:
Heroes, pets, towers, enemies, abilities, and everything else except gear will be conforming to the new design set forth this month in a series of “Let’s talk about” posts on the DDE forums.

Due to the method in which gear is stored in code, it will remain in the old balance regime because there will be no good way to revert it once we convert.

What this means for you:
You could find yourself in possession of some seriously overpowered gear.

Given that we know that much of the existing gear could be OP, we are asking you, fine dungeon defenders, to work with us in testing this rebalance and avoid posting feedback on the forums based on experiences with already existing gear. Starting a new hero or farming new gear for an existing hero are good ways to get a feel for what new progressions systems will feel like.

While we encourage you to discuss this topic amongst yourselves all weekend, on Monday, when we revert back to the current patch, we will posting a consolidated feedback thread on the forums where we will be tracking community sentiment on the rebalance. This thread will directly influence how we move forward with testing and possibly applying the rebalance.

Thank you for reading up on this topic and bearing with us as we completed the patch.

For more information about the Rebalance, check out this comprehensive post.

After 6 months of problems (lag, bugs etc) the game is now very playable and with new content.

However the playing community is sadly very small

Ok let me first say I DID enjoy the Dungeon Defenders 1 and Eternity. Now they are going to come out with Dungeon Defenders 2. Dungeon Defenders Eternity (DDE) has recently had a patch. This patch messed things up. Whether or not it is intentional is not for certain. I do however know that several of my friends that play it have reported the issue and had no response to their inquiry. I posted on the forums and no response either. I even looked on the known issues section of the forums, nothing there either. The 2 most played maps (cause of the good loot and gold ammount) are unplayable. So I now feel like I've thrown away my money in this game. I'm not 100% sure but I'm starting to believe this is a marketing strategy to get players to quit DDE and go back to DD1 or even get DD2, their new baby. Either way I wouldn't buy this unless it gets fixed since other maps don't give as good loot/gold as those 2. This makes me upset and I may even take my money and gaming time elsewhere. Who knows they may make DD3 and do the same to the other DD's. DON'T BUY THIS!!! At least not till they fix it.

This game had potential to be very good, however the horrible overlay coupled with tons of bugs makes this game unplayable. If you manage to get logged in, good luck getting through a full round. Do yourself a favor and and buy the original and play that.

TL;DR: Buy it if you haven't played Dungeon Defenders and you like ARPGs and Tower Defense.

Although many people were disappointed with this game upon release, me included, this game is worth looking at. A lot of the disappointment had to do with promises that weren't quite delivered upon.

Yet, upon revisiting this game, I find all the things that made the original Dungeon Defenders one of my favourite games of all time. Yet at a fraction of the cost. Sure it has problems, but this game is so diverse and puts in so many elements, of course it is going to be a mess. It is like Bethesda games: Open to play around with, tons of stuff to do, but similarly quite a few problems. If you want a game experience that is polished to the utmost and blanced, move on. If you don't mind a few uncomfortable edges and corners on a game that delivers tons of fun, jump right in.

The game itself is not really different from the precessor. But for Linux users there are some advantages, if they are able to get it running… PhysX stuff is working now so the mana is now going towards you.


But one note for the Linux users: Trendy is not interessted in you! They are ignoring mayor bugs and have been unable to fix a black screen issue for real (on this issue the game isn't starting at all.). They've integrated a horrible hack which requires root privileges… for that they needed multiple months. Many users had send them detailed informations about bugs, everything you get in reply is crap.


** Update after 2 Months **

Nothing has changed. The Developers seem to have no interest in fixing the biggest problems.

The game has some improvements over the original. However, matchmaking is pretty bad which forces you to play by yourself, thus making it hard + boring. Thereby I recommend the original game as is its much more convenient and fun to play.

A friend got me this game without realizing I already had dungeon defenders. I logged in to play and found this to be the same game. I gave the original game a thumbs up - it is an amazing game. This version is similar, but gets a thumbs down. I don't like the online system of logging in and match making. If you are interested in an RPG - Tower Defense hybrid, get the original, not this one. Eternity takes the original and only adds bad things.

It's mindblowing that people still buy this game.

It's buggy, unfinished, and abandoned by its developers.



DO NOT BUY.

TL;DR: It's a new and overall great perspective on a familiar game many love, with it's issues, but it is an overall welcome addition to the Dungeon Defenders series.

Longer review:
I absolutely loved Dungeon Defenders 1. They got a lot of things right, and all into one accessible game. Now Dungeon Defenders Eternity came out, keeping in mind a lot of the issues that were in the original Dungeon Defenders.

They have largely smashed the hacker issue, due to server-side items. This requires an online connection, and I'm more than happy with that in return for limiting hackers.

They have have several notable changes to the class mechanics, some major, and some even controversial. In my view, the way to look at this is... this is not DD1. This is a familiar game, with a new perspective. Are the changes for the best? That's a matter of opinion. Personally, I find the changes refreshing.

They added on several new game mechanics, and fixed some annoying issues from DD1. Did they get every change right? Probably not. But overall, this is a new take on DD1 that I find a new great twist to a familiar game, and worth the one-time price tag for a still awesome game that now comes with much of the previous DLC content right along with the base game.

In the end, even with issues considered, I would certainly recommend this, what is in my opinion a wonderful game, to others.

Loving it - played dd1 more than I would like to admit, and this was a breath of fresh air.

I hate that they took minion units out (oh do I ever hate that), but otherwise this fixes everything that was wrong with dungeon defenders 1. Now it just needs to fix its own problems (as they are doing with frequent patches).

The game's Linux release is broken on 64 bits systems and requires manual intervention to start up. Moreover the game uses its own update mechanism which really negates the benefits of using Steam.

I like it! It's a game that makes the needed improvements to the original. They seperation of Mana and Currency was a good call, and the loot distribution and added armor pieces were also a good call!

I'm quite sad that this game has gotten so many bad reviews, its actually really good if you give it a try!
The game is updated regulary, it's way more balanced compared to the first game where you could just take a LVL 1 character, hop on a nightmare crystalworld multiplayer game and boom you're LVL 70...
In the first game it was easy to just upgrade gear into ridiculousness and instakill everything in your way.
In this game most gear only go up to LVL 16 and as a LVL 45 apprentice i still have a weapon with +5 shots and 300Dmg.

This game is a good challange, gear isnt so overpowered and the hero stats are more balanced too, where in the first game you had 300points on tower casting rate and it shoots out a line of projektiles and murder everything,
In eternity you have 400Points and the towers are now good, but not nearly as op.

The first game has it's pro's and cons, So do this.
But i got this game because: ITS a new DD game! and that it includes all the DLC for way less money than if you buy it all for the original game.

I can say that sure, you don't have to love it, or you think that it sucks compared to the original DD.
But just like everything else, give it a GOOD FAIR CHANCE, and see it as a standalone, new game instead of a copy of the old one with "improvements"

DDE might look like a good deal since it includes most of the original game's DLC. It's not.

The bad:
- Playverse is a laggy, randomly disconnecting mess
- Client is unstable, crash to desktop is common
- Upgrades on the ground immediately disappear before you can run over to pick them up thanks to a low items on ground cap.
- Towers somehow got dumber from the original, big damage tower like Striker now shoots the weak goblin in the front of a pack instead of the super tough ogre in the middle.
- 'Noone' plays this, thanks to all the other issues, see http://steamcharts.com/search/?q=Dungeon+Defenders for details.

The good:
- Includes vast majority of the dlc available in the original for free.
- Can be played in offline mode which gets rid of the lag but of course its rather lonely.

I'll make it short. I played the first Dungeon Defenders (and I liked it alot) but I prefer this version even if most of the DD1 players don't. my reasons are:
-Still gets updates
-"All in one" version (no pay2win, all you can buy are emotes/costumes if you like them)
-Old DD1 contend gets added over time. No PvP and (if I'm correct) no Controller support on Mac yet :-(
-New Contend (I love the nightmare mobs, amuletes, the new pet skills and especially the new maps and bosses)
-Mostly cheat free
-Hopefully upcomming DD2 cross over items.
-more customize options with crafting, dying, Transmorg (change the looks of equipment or make it invisible)
