    Hi,
    May i ask personally, if you can "just" inform all player,maybe writing something,when you make changes/nerf to the game.I think this will help the estimation of players on you.

    ps:may someone tags devs?

    A suggestion: If you think you've found something not working in the game as you'd expected it to, instead of assuming that something has been stealth-nerfed, assume that something was unintentionally broken and report it as a bug.

    And there's a link to the patch notes in the upper right corner of the launcher...
    So... while you're waiting for the patch to complete, click it and have something useful to do while it does its thing.

    The things that aren't exploits are in the patch release notes.

    A lot of things aren't though. I can list several resist changes on mobs, loot changes and even core combat math changes that never made their way to any of the patch notes, release notes or the task list. And these are just the kind of things I pay very close attention to so I notice them changing and often times I can fully verify this based on my chat logs.

    It is not even that uncommon for the devs to explicitly say they're changing something, change it but still it never makes it way to the channels meant for communicating changes.

    Whatever you think if this kind of unannounced changes happening is OK or not, don't try and deny they don't happen just because you don't notice them.

    Sometimes, "a Player gets on a Radio Show" & feels the need to broadcast/proclaim/announce their achievements in-game, that the Devs weren't aware of until said broadcast & then changes are made that affect the "less elite player" who spoke out on the radio show....

    Maybe, since you KNEW it could be milked as an exploit. You should have made a bug report/contacted Devs directly, instead of "big noting" yourself & what you had been doing for some time & profited by?

    So just 1 Player, ruins it for the more casual player, that "wasn't milking the Cow" for immense profits....

    Rufus, not everyone is clueless to the Patch Notes page, but some changes/nerfs, are not documented in the Patch Notes..
    Some changes, have NOT been noted in the Patch notes = didn't affect Me, but someone in the Guild noticed it.

    Sorry but after 3 readings I honestly have no idea what you're trying to call me out for. I guess only those smarter than me get to enjoy this sick burn.

    There's lots going on with this game and more to come. Always as mentioned first think of bug reporting if something is not mentioned but imo hang onto your hat. The devs are doing the best they can to try to deal with complaining players and improve this game. While we may not always agree in the directions taken complaining does little. Presenting the facts with constructive feedback will do more. I don't feel they should have to account for their every move even though they do try. I say get a grip and look to presenting your complaints in a constructive manner that will be heard and thought of but my opinion of course.

    i think armaleon told all about it.we're not talking about bugs, but permanent changes.Personally i come from 10 years of UO. it's still normal to make counts, deeper you go, easly you can see changes(that apply with time you play usually also, without counts).
