Today, we had the patch 100 on Acclaim’s 9Dragons version. Many hoped, there will be something nice, something great, something new on the patch 100. But according to Patch 100 notes there’s nothing special.
But there was indeed something great… The nuker damage cap was lowered, at least on PvP (Player vs Player) mode. For many players, that was the best patch ever, also for me.
While the nukers are crying and calling it a “bug”, some people know exactly that this is not one. You don’t believe me? I thought so. That’s why I made a screenshot of the words of the GM Ravenclaw, of December the 11th 2009, on Bardo. He wanted to spawn 2 True General Wei bosses:
On December the 11th we got that information… On December the 29th we got that patch… Do you notice something? Of corse it’s not a bug!
This will for sure not stay like this… As far as I know, they want to bring the healer and nuker class up too.
The reason, why so many nukers are crying, is easy: Before the patch, nukers just needed the basic stuff to be the gods of PvP. The only reason, why they should buy expencive and good equipment, is to kill other nukers too. While the most nukers did not used their money for better equipment, the most warriors types (warriors, healer-warriors, hybrid-warriors, vagabonds…) used their money for better equipment, to get at least a little chance.
Now, the most warriors got good equipment, the most nuker-types don’t. So the warriors with the good equipment are of corse the winners on a battle.
Even I, as Vagabond, had to laught a lot today, in Bloody Plain. It’s long, very long time ago, when I was last time in BP for PvP. But today, when I heard the nukers are not anymore the gods of PvP, I just had to go and try out. That was really epic… The player Cuba-Libre from Bardo, for example. He’s a nuker and could kill me, a Vagabond, just with KGs (Korean Ginsengs) and ganging (means: many players attacked me on same time). At the end, when I was dead, he called me noob, and said he solo-killed me.
That was a really awesome day on Bloody Plain. As soon the gods fall down and lose their power, they try to win with every dirty trick and try to tell you they did it on a nice way.
The warriors will of corse not be for ever the kings on PvP. As soon the nukers also get good equipment, there will be the real balance. The knowledge of the game seems finally to be relevant on PvP.
This was the best patch, which Acclaim ever brought us, in my opinion. And this patch, patch number 100, just wrote history and will be for a long time on the peoples mind.
Patch 100 – The time when the gods fell down.
