Howdy LE Devs
Quick Bio: BETAs for MMOs not this type of game. Loved DOS, DOS2, Torchlight, have enjoyed Diablo 3 until about Torment 11-12, then it is just massively boring. Mainly an RPG guy.
Tech: Mid-2017 Mac Air, i7, 8GB ram. Have played all of the games noted above on mid to high specs, looks gorgeous, never an issue.
Feedback: first and foremost, congratulations! All the core DNA is there. LE is an extremely well thought out game and in spite of the issues I will note, I GREATLY enjoy the mechanics, the depth, the variety, the crafting is really good- lots of potential, and the look, all very strong. The time travel threw me (in a good way) at first but I really like that experience, too. So great work, a lot to be proud of!
Gameplay, this feels more Alpha than Beta, at least on the Mac Air, and that’s with the lowest settings. It was not until this last big update that I could even play the game with any level of stability. Logging in is still very buggy. The login screen appears then disappears, the turning “loading” wheel appears, multiple times before it finally chills enough where I can log in.
Gameplay flow, still stutters a lot, very choppy. Dramatically better than it was pre-patch, I could not even play the game. Not complaining, BTW. None of this is complaining, its AlphaBeta feedback and nothing more. I trust you’ll eventually get it all this sorted.
So just technically, functionally, would like to get the same smooth framerate and look as I get on DOS and Diablo 3 at some point, again, as feedback. This is not a gaming laptop, which I would normally say (with some MMOs) but I can play all the AARPGs without any issues on this laptop.
Game mechanics, only one thus far is mildly annoying, the need for a type of stone to break down items for crafting. I’ve always maxed out all my crafting in any game Ive ever played, I really enjoy that aspect of the game. And I enjoy the fact that early on, I can craft some strong items here. But a two toons in, one level 7 one 2, so very low level but some time in and still not able to break down blues or whatever into crafting elements.
Again. love the gain and am DEFINITELY seeing improvements. Hope to add another round of funding support in July. Hope this helps
