    Default Re: Talathion 2.0: Retardation in Rift

    so that "HIT" is basically gearscore or whatever they wanted to introduce here in eq2?
    never liked the idea tbh.

    i'd not turn that down instantly as such things always have to be seen in context
    i understand the concept - question is, is this barrier set in a clever way?
    for example, i remember when SF came out and we barely were 85 thus being able to enter cella we did so, and we cleared it, with only one healer...it was huge fun, despite enormous struggle we had to put in there at that time
    would this be possible with gearscore? no, if game locks you out...which would make me lose a fine piece of gaming memory

    now, i dont know how that barrier is set in rift
    but even good players should be able to enter content, even if its just for the sake of being defeated
    at least i think its a better way to acknowledge own weakness, rather an AI telling you that by default

    that said, its a question of personal patience
    if i dont want to group with undergeared ppl i simply cannot do pickup groups, i dont need gearscore for that, really
    and besides, if i must decide between an undergeared but nice enough player and an geared out asshole i'd almost always go for the first one
    the latter surely helps more getting the job done, but games in general are easy enough, so i'd rather prefer good company over an imaginery safety

    but again, its not always black OR white

    it doesnt matter because dev said has to and will stay. the end. if you dont come up with a different solution
    you have to shut up. i believe this is the basic complaint towards tuor.

    i dont think that anyone needs to provide a solution for something one doesnt actually need
    its just another "they cant figure it out themself, lets make it dipshit-proof"-thing
    no biggie, but still another piece that contributes towards dumbing games down further

    as for tala, i dont understand the hatred he creates always...if someone acts retarded i leave him alone, its as simple as that
    i dropped any desire to cure mankind from idiocracy....way to time-consuming

    Awesome RaR. I didn't think I'd see another decent one on Flames.

    Brilliant rar except where are the tits? And tbh, I like tuor and always have. Unlike most people, I'm able to look at a dumb idea and say that's dumb without shitting all over someone's handicap. Op needs to grow up.

    crit is a stat that essentially does not hinder you to zone into any instance and make an attempt there
    if your undergeared, but you and your buddies know what theyre doing, you can still get the job done

    wow afaik locks you out of instances, when your gear doesnt meet the entry-requirements...not sure if thats exactly the same in rift
    but there is no such thing in EQ2, and that was the only thing i was pointing out

    the introduction of a "gearscore"-thing is the first step to lock ppl out via engine
    i'm fairly surprised they didnt made it, as this would have been an obvious approach to fix DF-shit (in their way of thinking)

    so in the end one could say SOE did a good thing once, with leaving stuff borked

    Not having enough Hit doesn't lock you out of content in Rift, you just won't be able to meet enrage timers because having a miss chance will cause your DPS to be lower than it could be. Fights in Rift are very tightly tuned, so you need to give yourself every possible advantage if you want to stand a chance. It's not a game for noobs.

    Ily provided the tits. I figured not to include any as sort of a sound-off to the glorious days of EQ2Flames's past, when RaRs didn't have tits in them.

    What's the point of this site again?
