  • Re: Weekly challenge has flaws

    It's an optional challenge, it is meant to be very hard

    Simply having an option to config your own your would be a huge start. 

    Ok just had a thought. What about touch pad gestures to select weavers? Eg swipe up, swipe right, swipe down.

    In the past, high level players were downscaled to the map level +10. The traps were also downscaled. 
  • Re: PS4 controller layout comments

    I played it again a short while ago. In general the controls do not seem to correspond with the PlayStation menu style.

    The dashboard:
    ---------

    - Navigation problems:
    No set consistency, unintuitive, different buttons to select different screen items. Unable to leave a queue. 

    The navigation menu suggests to click Triangle to select it, however this just results in a radial menu popping up which you then need to select workshop, profile etc again which is unnecessary. 
    Hitting L1 and R1 navigates across the sub menu. L3 for opening chests, R3 for queuing etc. This is confusing, and not necessary. 

    Navigating by use of the touchpad isn't bad, however not all dashboard buttons can be selected once moused over. I also found this slower compared to if I had control pad navigation. 

    Solution:
    Treat the dashboard like the PS home screen. Navigate with the plus controller, select with X and go back with O. 

    Eg: Navigate with plus to workshop, hit X, this put the focus on the workshop submenu, go right to highlight gear, click X, right to select having root, click X to read description. Bang bang bang. 
    Simple and consistent. 

    - Unable to leave queue
    I accidentally hit R3 instead of L3 when you want to open a chest and suddenly you are in a queue. There is no way to leave the queue until it finds a match and you abandon it. 

    Solution: change the dashboard navigation, remove the confusing L3 R3 mechanics. Add a button to cancel the queue. 

    In-game:
    -----------
    - No controller configuration options. Cannot reassign buttons. 

    - Cannot aim and use Epic skill at the same time. This affects:
    Max - In your Face
    Dobbin - Throw Dynamite
    Blackpaw - Bite
    Tundra - flash freeze
    Bloodspike - axe throw eviscerate(?)

    Solution: reassign abilities to L1 and L2 (as per initial post) which is where your fingers should be when fighting.

    Old games were running locally on your machine. OMDU is server based as Donnerstag mentioned.
