The new one turned out to be a flop and a horrible idea. I just coded back the old system and it will be patched in tomorrow. Apologies for the inconvenience, sometimes the awesome idea backfires hard.
- Remade Act 1 Zone 1
- Attack Speed now only has 50% of it's power
- Attack Speed Relics no longer scale with difficulty
- Armor is now Diminishing, it means that it can go up to 99% but starts slowing
down really much the more points you have on it. The first 100 points or so give
much more than the rest after that.
- Buffed Wormhole Key drop rate from 25% to 50%
- Sheep King now drops Wormhole Key 100%
- Hololo now spawns bubbles correctly in Wormholes.
- Fixed experience gain in Act 7

- Gold now saves properly to Steam Cloud.
- Mana Regen has been capped in order to nerf the op mana regeneration.
- Dungeons and Crypts are now always open.
- Waves are now hidden and can no longer be skipped, the system is much more dynamic now.

So we are releasing the US server next week with the big patch. The current dedicated server is working, but has some issues. The current one is coded in c++ but we are working on a JAVA server which should work alot better and smoother.
Just a heads up, expect a patch on monday or tuesday!
I dont know yet but I think it would be cool to add some skins to the game, the amount of work tho is massive so most likely gonna hire and extra artist to do them since they need to be animated for every direction and pose.
I am keeping you guys in the loops about what we are doing and what will be in the next patch. So here you go:
- We introduce Satanic weapons which is a tier higher than Mythic. These weapons have bigger max attack speed than mythics, more primary and off stats as well as more damage and unique attack modifiers that you wont get from other rarity weapons.
- There will be a ton of new sprites for the legendary up weapons.
- All damage taken will be moved client side, so nothing you cant see cant kill you anymore. This means even if the game is a bit desynced, what happens on your screen matters.
- Attack Speed has been nerfed, scaling slower than before and relics nerfed. This is to prevent too much bullet hell and concentrating the damage dealing from damage instead.
- Armor is now diminishing so it can go up to 99%. This means the first 200 points count more than the rest 1000 etc.
- Buffed Wormhole Key drop rate from 25% to 50%.
- Buffed Wormhole Mythic drop chances.
- Fixed Experience gains and Set wormhole experience factors.
- Wormholes cannot be entered if there is a lower than level 150 player in the group.
I have been thinking about something. The wave system no longer fits the game that well in my opinion.
Removing the waves from the normal game mode, and replacing them with just pre-randomed packs of enemies in the map would be much enjoyable in my opinion. It would make the game a bit faster and less repetitive.
How this would work:
We would set a script that fetches an enemy type from our enemy pool and makes a 5-8 enemy pack that would include normal and rare enemies, as well as one elite (this in normal).
Once you kill all the enemies on the zone, it will summon the boss on the pentagram and you're done with the area.
We need your thoughts on this, please leave your comment below
We have been scratching our heads with the desync problems, stuff not appearing on client screen (acid, flames etc). We think its because of packet loss or lagg so that the abilities are not sent in time.
In order to tackle this, we will make "taking damage" client sided, so whatever you see on your screen is the hazard, what happens in the host's end wont no longer be a problem. If an ability fails to send it self to the clients, still existing on host side, it will not damage the player client side.
Just wanted to drop here and tell this, because it will fix a plethora of problems!
