About Chaos Trials difficulty
Big fan of the game from the ground up, I think CT is the best thing to play and gives a good reason to play and replay the maps with a different challenge everytime. Some modifyers combos make a really tough challenge and you sometimes finish the game with the hands shivering and the heart close to exploding and that's really good.
I have a problem (is it only me?) with almost all the keys Master and RL starting from T7. I now have like more than 30 keys I just won't do because I just don't want to anymore. When the difficulty is not just insane because of the dramatic increase of minion resistance (ie, in T7, with Midnight it takes you like 5 2nd click slashes to take down a big ogre when it takes only 1 normally), and the modifyers combo makes them impossible to play also. Imagine the Gates of Thuricvod with Spawning protection, fast minions, rush timer, expensive barricades, 2x wall traps and add kamikaze, rugged runners, all together! And I have now dozens of keys with that type of mischieving combo.
Not only foes get dramatically stronger but traps quickly become quite useless, as effective as a feather for fighting a crocodile. Thus even more mouse strokes are necessary to kill everything... when you can because at the same you have the additional unstable rift ringing for your attention all the time...
I am sure you may find some hardcore players who will say it's no big deal, that I'm maybe a bad player and such. But what I think is maybe it's doable but it's just not fun anymore. A match on T7 lasts an average of 25-30mn compared to a normal 10-15mn on survival, hitting the mouse strokes like a maniac all the time, for a nearly zero chance of success. For just gaining a few gibs and skulls I don't need. A big and avoidable waste of time IMO.
It's a shame because all the fun of the CT concept is suddenly vanished by the difficulty increase. For me, the difficulty is fun when you have to dodge shots, spare resources, think strategic, run, kill increased numbers and types of foes too, I even had fun playing your insane par time on Water Garden. Because it makes sense. I think playing high difficulty CT doesn't make sense anymore.
Still love the game though, no doubt about that.
