Re: Thoughts.

Evasion: Cast data (sourcepos, targetpos) arrives 1xping later on opponent's client than executed on server. It was aimed at opponent positions 2xping older than when executed on server from a position that matches the execution time (asuming cast time skewing). So the origin is 1xping old - as all ...

Re: Thoughts.

Combat: There are a couple of things that I would consider to be flaws with your combat system. In fact, they might be the same problem, namely that the position of your spell seems to be registered when you press the button, and not when it is actually cast. If you've played Bloodline Champions, c...

Re: Plot Ideas for a Story set in the "Das Tal" World

Some ideas: the world ends with the dragon/leviathan/snake (dark side of the substance) closing a window into the life-hostile valley/hell. The trees of life can be the starting point of a new paradise - they grow from seeds/orbs/fruits of bright substance (good side of the substance). New seeds/fru...

Re: Plot Ideas for a Story set in the "Das Tal" World

After reading up on story crafting for the last months/weeks I have further dived into source material to collect patterns that potentially resonate. The Spawntrees/wells got me started into researching a Eden/Hell/Rebirth/Wisdom/Tree of Life and Knowledge theme. The name of the City Dilmun and the ...

Re: My thoughts about the Lore

Re: Season scale gameplay - Season victory conditions

An additional faction could be the Revenants that collect Corruption, introducing a fight against the dark side of the substance. Revenants will hoard/donnate substance and build totems generating Corruption. Rebels and Jailors get debuffs from those and can gain substance by destroying them. (Someh...

Season scale gameplay - Season victory conditions

Thought a bit more about the season end - the current mechanics and lore are still a bit arbitrary and inconclusive. That made it difficult to come up with a good finale for my story draft ... From an earlier thread: Thought a bit more about "Respect": I now understand it to be the equival...

Re: Improving the smallscale PvP events

Got it - thanks for the feedback to both of you! Bump! Lots of still valid feedback in this thread. Thought about small events from an UX / Usability / Newbie perspective: How about simplifying their usage: remove the activation step, replace it by the first capturing score increment. Thus the thin...

Re: Discussion Why Does This Damn Thing Repeat?

The reversed storm might ease the repetition explanation: naturally the valley is deadly, only at certain times or after certain rituals a portion of it gets accessible for some time....

Re: Plot Ideas for a Story set in the "Das Tal" World

Reversal of purging storm: instead of summoning a storm, something holding back the storm runs out. Since the valley is already deadly - less things to explain?

Maybe the End-boss is there to collect something?

Valley = Eden = Hell?
