Regarding question 7, can it be reverted for people who have appropriate protection to not get sent back to the enterance? As they will not get piled by aggressive mobs.
I don’t think this is possible as it’s basically a variable on every player to say that if they log out they will be put to a safe place. We did consider how it impacts other players but we ultimately felt the benefits outweigh the additional few seconds it takes to get back there. Especially considering you can stay there quite a while as far as I know.
Why did you patch door strat at Nex?
We hotfixed this today. I haven’t been directly involved in the discussion on it so far, but I believe player feedback told us that the boss was being stalled and it made the fight considerably more boring where it was used to avoid intended mechanics. The change made us to ensure players at least engage a bit more.
The last Q&A was posted as General Q&A but no general questions (on Leagues/ Wildy) were taken other than Nex-focused questions.
Will the next Q&A be a truly general Q&A?
That’s my fault! I added a bit of text in the introduction to clarify that I have saved some of the top questions gathered last week for our next general Q&A.
As for when that is, we have some Leagues 3 livestreams planned so a general one will be planned alongside those.
This Thursday is already booked in to be a Leagues 3 hype theorycrafting stream. On the 19th Leagues 3 releases so we expect the stream on the 20th to focus on Leagues again.
We are probably looking more so at the 24th for another general Q&A but I can look into the possibility of one sooner on a Monday!
I’ve seen multiple people request for a timetable of sorts for this and it’s something I’ve been looking into, but plans can change so I am not sure yet how far I can plan in advance for these things in order to share them officially with you!
Thank you for taking the time to write this all up! I feel much more in the loop about things now that these are being published as I was rarely able to watch the livestream due to timing. Thank you, Light!
Thank you for the feedback! It is much appreciated especially as these blogs can take time to write up haha.
I am aware that there might be a few typos here and there with these types of long transcript style blogs, but in general, I think they can help to share information better. I am super keen to keep making sure that you guys feel listened to by the developers working on the game and that you are aware of how the developers feel as well. Thanks!
Please keep posting these summaries! I used to love reading them here on reddit whenever other players felt like volunteering to write them up. Jmods doing it officially is a great idea
I will try to, as much as possible! They can be a little bit time consuming but we're getting there :)
If a player who hosts an instance at nex leaves or dies, who becomes the host?
The host can rejoin their own instance under a different player name, but a new player has to guess who becomes the host? This doesn’t seem very intuitive / effective
I've asked Mod Arcane about your question. He's stated there is no new host apparently. You likely would just be better off leaving and making a new one if it doesnt let you back in. I hope this helps and can pass on feedback about it.
I listen to these, but it's good to have a write-up. I appreciate the thorough transcript, but a TLDR answer may be useful as well
Unfortunately it’s just not possible to do both to the level you might want. If we were to TLDR the answers, we might miss important information. We have tried to cut down anything off topic though or repetitions of things!
Are you guys going to take care of the LMS bots? It’s been a was problem for so long and I can guarantee with 99% accuracy whenever I see a bot. A simple solution? A) Ban the current bots B) have a working detection system based on their behavior (again very obvious) and C) make the requirement to play mich higher (like a total of at least 1000). Stop letting level three’s play the game.
This is something we have been discussing internally still and we addressed it just before the Christmas break, but I am not sure of the solution yet just letting you know it’s on our radar and the right people know about it.
Ok so you're not actually revealing new info, it's only some literal-who youtubers talking?
I’m not sure exactly of what will be revealed, to be honest but it’s likely that if something is revealed we will also share it on our social platforms like Twitter etc.
Videos uploaded to YouTube have an autogenerated transcript that can be searched. That's how I got the info I was after. I hope you didn't have to type it all up :)
Holy moly thank you for this! This is actually super helpful! We did type it up ourselves but this could save a lot of time 🥲
