    I like playing video games, guitar, piano, bass, and I also like using computers in general so I'm probably gonna go to college for web and software development because that's how you use computers for a living with style.

  3. This is the most tame debate I've seen in years. If this is the worst you have to deal with as a moderator then just sit back because you have absolutely nothing to worry about.
  4. Idk what you're smoking but there's no new challenge when the stat pets and new weapon stats make for better combinations than you could even conceive of before. There was no point in nerfing the Black Morning Star (The only weapon that actually got nerfed badly)Why not ask dan or the devs then since it concerns you so much?The black morning star had +5 mag and crit before? Crit made it op There is more of a challenge now.. Most of the weapons are found throughout insane mode rather then dlc... Quite f'n obvious I like the new balance and the more elemental feel to alot of the weapons.. Why be limited and one minded to a weapon that everyone uses? -3 strength +6 magic +1 defense 1% crit, now it has everything the same but just 1 magic. The crit didn't make it OP because even with the crit it had an overall -1.9 strength anyway. It was just good because of the 6 magic, so it was just a tiny bit better than the unicorn horn, which was left intact.

  6. Add me here: http://steamcommunity.com/id/Aichomancer I have 15 gold skulls and finally I've got a computer good enough to actually run games. Requirements: Must have at least 1 white skulled character Must be willing to level skip when we're at different levels of progress through the map (Although this may not be a problem since I have 16 different characters all with different levels of completion to choose from)
  7. the man catcher has the second highest damage output and crit rate, and lots of other things (obviously) have the second highest something too. I was thinking about adding a bonus of +0.5 for everything that has a second highest since the first highest for everything gets +1, and then I think the man catcher would be equal to the skull mace. Should I do it? The main reason I didn't do it yet is because I thought of it right before I finished and didn't want to go back and do it all over again.
  8. If the Black Morning Star, Fishing Spear, and the Lollipop were removed, then by my grading scale, every weapon in the game would be ranked according to their level from highest to lowest (aka 35 > 30 > 20 > 15 > 10 > 5 > 1). While most level 20/30/35 weapons are fairly well balanced with eachother, at this point in time, aside from the snakey staff, the 35's and 30's are finally a tad better. Anyway, back to the point of this thread. Most level 20 weapons are in A rank and S rank, with 10 to 16 points on average. The Black Morning Star has 5.5 points and is in C Rank. If the stats were changed from what they are now to -3 strength +6 magic +1 defense 2% critical hit, then it would be in S rank with 17 points, making it the second highest ranked level 20 weapon to the snakey staff, which makes it fit perfectly into a weapon system that ranks from highest to lowest level. Most level 15 weapons are in B and A rank with 8 to 12 points on average. The Fishing Spear has 2.5 points and is in D rank. If the stats were changed from what they are now to +5 strength +3 magic, then it would be in A rank with 10.5 points, which would make it fit perfectly into a weapon system that ranks from highest to lowest level. Most level 1 weapons are in E, D, and C rank with -0.5 to 4 points on average. The Lollipop has 8.5 points and is the highest ranked weapon within B rank. If its stats were changed from what they are now to -1 defense +3 agility, then it would be in D rank with 3.5 points, which would make it fit perfectly into a weapon system that ranks from highest to lowest level. Before dismissing this, please just realize that this isn't just a request from a fan, but legitimate insight into ways you can better refine your game into a finished product, which to be honest you're closer than ever to achieving.
  9. Wiki Page: http://castlecrashers.wikia.com/wiki/Weapon_Tiers Congratulations behemoth! Now at least 90% of the weapons are ranked with the highest level weapons high and the low level weapons low! It makes sense now, so you're getting better! The only two big problems are the Black Morning Star, which doesn't make sense anymore, and the Fishing Spear, which never made sense to begin with. Just make the black morning star have 6 magic again, otherwise the only thing that doesn't make sense is that there's no distinguishable difference between a level 20, 30, and 35 weapon). Honestly aside from the Black Morning Star, the weapons are perfect now (imo at least).

Strength Strength increases one's maximum base melee damage by 1, so it's worth one point. The stat is really not that spectacular, and it's not necessary either; it's just a good time saver on insane mode. It doesn't make anything easy, it doesn't make anything harder, it just makes things faster. It's recommended that one doesn't upgrade strength until after beating normal mode because that gives the player time to level up to the point where regardless of their amount of strength leveling comes on its own and doesn't need to be rushed. Technically strength only increasing base melee damage by one per point is strength's only effect, but it actually increases throwing damage slightly more than 1 but slightly less than 2. It's also responsible for 38.54% of the damage XXXY does on the Y, but factoring the XXX, it's responsible for 71.50% of the damage in elemental combos, and 61.06% of the damage in Non-Elemental combos. Magic Magic increases one's base magic damage by 2 (splash damage up 1), so it's worth 1 point. Every five points increases your splash attack range, and reduces mana cost, therefore +5 or more magic grants 2 bonus points. Weapons that provide two magic bonuses with beholder receive a bonus of 4 points. Defense Defense increases one's HP by 28 every time the player levels up. It's therefore worth 1 point, but it receives a bonus point for +5 because it upgrades armor. Negative defense is weighted at 0.5 points each. Weapons that receive two bonuses with spiny receive 1.5 bonus points. Agility Agility is necessary for juggling, and it helps with alignment, dodging, and combo locking. That's just stuffin addition to its primary effect (increased speed and bow damage), which essentially makes it the most god like of stats, at least arguably. Being as useful as it is, agility is weighted at 1.5 points each. Special Effects Special effects are calculated based on the equivalent amount of strength that their damage is worth. Freezing is worth +0.4 strength for every second it freezes enemies in addition to the damage it deals. These are rounded up or down to the nearest tenth. Critical hit: +3.5 strength Lightning: +1.1 strength Fire: +1.4 strength Poison: +2.2 strength Ice: +2.1 strength Additional Grading Criteria If a weapon has -3 or more strength or magic, it's docked 2 points. Defense exists in only -2 at the lowest, so this can't apply to it, and agility is already weighted, making the application of this rule to it redundant. Every negative point beyond -3 is an additional -0.5. If a weapon has +3 or more to two stats then it receives 1 bonus point. It receives an additional 0.5 bonus points for every additional bonus above 3. (e.g. if the sum of the two stats is 6, it's +1, 8 = +1.5, +10 = +2) If a weapon has no negative stats, it receives 1 bonus point. All bonuses and pentalties are accounted for at the second half of the equation. Once a weapon receives its net score, it's rounded up to the nearest half (.0 or .5). Weapons can receive a bonus point for having the highest melee damage output, magic damage output, health increase, agility buff, crit rate, poison chance, lightning chance, ice chance, or fire chance.
  10. Why did you lock my tier list when I myself was the one who had it unlocked just the other day? It's not your tier list to just change whenever you feel like it because that's what you have your own list for In fact I thought you'd like the update since it drastically improved royal guard and conehead's ranks What's funny is that that has no relevance to this thread at all. Yes it does because he edited the tier list that this thread is in reference to. I thought you could tell that things that are relevant to each other are relevant to each other, but apparently you've failed to meet my expectations

  12. He has the largest delay on his splash attack, and he's literally the only character that can DIE before his splash attack hits enemies; with arrows you can only get hit one time before it hits, but only if the enemy is already aligned with you before you cast. With Hatty they don't even have to be aligned and they can still hit you once before you hit them. Just because of that alone is plenty of valid reason to consider him the absolute worst character in the game.
  13. Since Blacksmith's splash attack has received a few small updates, he's jumped up a whole letter grade. The only real change that had any significant impact on any rank was just Blacksmith's splash attack and otherwise I just improved rankings and made them more fair. Note that there is no difference between Barbarian and Necromancer's old selves.

  14. Conehead Groom could go in if he has dark pillars and bombs, and sawblades should be nerfed to 21 hits max and fencer has bombs making him better than industrialist and ultimately better than he was before Castle Keep Shopkeeper (bomb thrower), Sorceress (Light Pillars, which would be a white reskin of dark pillars), Traveling Salesman (bomb rain splash + bomb projectiles maybe), Church Store Priest (Shoots huge beams of light that shock and burn enemies), Swamp Village Shopkeeper (Snakey reskin with bombs), and Snow Store Shopkeeper (dark pillars reskin with ice effects, or vine reskin made of snow)
  15. People have already made shaders for it, but nothing really innovative because it's inconvenient to do so.
