Hello Epochers !
I replied directly on the 0.7.7 patch topic but a proper community feedback is probably more useful.
I’m not a “graphics-dependant” kind of player but, as we are in Beta, let’s talk about every aspect.
I think i speak for majority of the players when i say that the improvements are awesome. The game is beautiful and, now, we have a great atmosphere (better implication) and skills seem visually more striking (better feeling of your gameplay).
That being said, some points are less convincing in my opinion :
- The portal representation in the Eterra’s Maps. Maybe because of the blue border on the location where you don’t have a portal, but when you zoom out, the visibility is not really good (and it has a blurry-like aspect)
- The new player UI is beautiful and kind of “clean”. That’s why the skill, teleport & health potion icons seems like oldies compared to it (a discrepancy between the different styles).
- I think some shadowed zones lacks of visibility (well, on my setup at least). I have to put in “very bright” just to see a minima the zone and enemies. I especially think about the desert areas.
- Some skills leaves sometimes a strange graphics impressions. It’s more personnal i imagine but the totems appears a bit odd (i zoomed to see if i hadn’t an issue with the texture, even in ultra). I haven’t enough builds to see all the panel but i’m sure other players will have a better overview. Nevertheless the animations are often really great.
Regarding the flow, it’s quite obvious that we have much less lags than before. I suppose it will be improved again in future patches but i’ll just make a state of play.
At the moment, the start of an area can still be a litlle laggy. Moreover, some enemies or the fact that you have a lot of pets have still a very laggy effects, like your PC was in Rahyeh chest : the famous ice elementary, the immortal eyes…
Right now, it’s difficult for me to do a feedback about the arena because of this issue (lags is the main cause of death, as i have only sub-optimal characters).
Needless to say it’s not a complain but an observation about the current limits i see.
Thank you for reading my little feedback and congrats for your smart development of the game.
