Might I remember you guys, that we had a vote for overhead stabs and you all voted for it ?
I am quite confused to see that you dislike whatever we changed on the melee system, if you voted for it or not... It just does not make any sense.
So next time we just won't change it at all, becouse votes do not catch the majoritys will? That would be stupid.. Sorry about that, but I really really do not understand you.
We changed it to your liking and now you are complaining. As vince already said, I think the problem is, that you simply dislike whatever we changed...
I didn't vote (Although, granted i would have voted yes at the time had i known about this poll), but seeing how in general the Dev's seem to not care about about anyone's criticism of things that most people agree are fucked i won't care to try to be diplomatic.
Next time when people vote for changes, do them well or don't bother, test them properly, and make sure it works without glitches. There hasn't been a single "We are looking into this, thanks guys for your feedback" And it's quite clear that more than a vocal minority have issues with NW's melee.
All I have seen so far is the issue being publicly ignored and then when you finally get around to talking about it, this...
NW is not competitive?
It is actually quite better balanced, the bayonet is still as powerfull as MM, just you have more options now.
In all essence, people don't like change, and I would hardly call our combat system anything like WFAS, or mainstream.
... Is the kind of reply we get. 13e team won the melee tourny again, like they usually do, the landscape of "good" players hasn't changed much, shifted a few points either way for a couple of people, but nothing drastic. Doesn't change that melee at the high end of the game is worse and less fun. "More balanced" just says "dumbed down and glitchy" to me.
And no this isn't an "YOU BROKE MY GAME DEVS I HATES U", as i said in another post, i'm playing native these days when i play at all, you can do as you like with NW.
But i bought it, and my opinion is that it's pretty arrogant of you to absolutely ignore such a large collection of esteemed veterans who contributed alot to this community, probably proving a good portion of the community foundation that has allowed you to sell this as a DLC. Players like Ward, Chibbi, Evan etc, etc (The list goes on and on).
Genuinly reads like a big "**** you" in my eyes.
