'You've Been Vocal. We Are Totally Listening' Says Producer

'You've Been Vocal. We Are Totally Listening' Says Producer - MMORPG.com

The latest DC Universe Online producer's letter has been published that goes into some detail about the recently deployed Stats Revamp update that fundamentally changed much of the game. It has been a bit since the update was released and, since then, the team has been listening to community feedback. "Yep, you've been vocal. We are totally listening."

The feedback has been gathered and split into four major themes:

  • veteran players are concerned with the amount of time it takes to finish end-game content
  • other players visiting areas that were once "about right" are finding them significantly more difficult than before making completion take longer
  • on-level group content seems much harder or even too hard altogether
  • players not using the new progression systems in skill points, mods, generator mods, mainframes

While valid issues, the team feels that some of this is a good thing. Change is tough, but giving an adequate challenge is also good.

There are several changes coming in the short, medium and long terms to try to address some of the most pressing issues and to make the overall experience better.

In The Short Term

So, having heard this key feedback, here are our immediate plans to address these areas of concern.

  1. Our content design team is refocusing to live playtesting and making content adjustments across the game with a focus on the middle tiers.
  2. We will adjust NPC stats lower in the earlier parts of the game lower, making more generous assumptions about how quickly and when players will fully be participating in ALL avenues of progression.
    • Both of the above should address concerns from players struggling when on-level AND from players struggling or taking too long when returning to out-leveled content.
  3. We will adjust some of the roleless buffs in alerts to better enable 4-player groups of any combination to tackle content and to make the buffs more equal to each other.
  4. We will update the vault to drop scaling gear.

You can read about some of the other changes in the more distant future by heading over to Leah "Katnikov" Bowers' letter on the DC Universe Online site.
