Treehug and Noose both do that, though, right? That is, deal one aff on their 10-p bomb list? It's broken bones for Treehug and entanglement for Noose.
Our 10p bomb actually does less damage than one of our 5p bombs if it doesn't have any affs on it. Also, yes, we can benefits to our 10p bomb, but any benefits a Wyrdenwood has have a +2 added on top. If we had 5 chemists using the 10p bomb at the same time it'd deal about 10k damage, which would kill people without runes or whatever Celestine buffs you were throwing around. There'd also be no stun.5 Wyrdenwoods would do 20k damage and 5k bleeding, also stunning for 3s. I know that's slightly unfair since not everyone has the demi+ aff so let's bring that down a bit.To 15k with 5k bleeding and stuns. And that's if no one has the demi+ thing.
Parhelion said:So let me ask you this. Serious questions.How many of your 'chemwoods were using attacks during your bombs building to try and stack afflictions to increase your damage? Did you coordinate on one person, or were you all over the place? What were your damage buffs like? On the flipside, what are your poison and cutting resistances like? How many of you were holding Justice Karma blessings? How many Magnagorans kept up unholywater? I know I saw a log earlier of someone in Mag's unholywater hitting Kreon for 6k or so.
I mean. Pressing the creeping/chembomb button is a strategy. I stand by the fact that yes, xyzwood need a look over, and that's my personal opinion. You're not the only one in the boat of, "my chem sucks more than xyzwood"
What I find so sad on threads like these is... that people are so quick pointing fingers at 'this is OP' and 'that is OP' and 'you had no skill, no luck, you simply had that one overpowered skill, thats why we lost.'. Yes, I get it, I've been there myself, many times. It is easy to point the finger at one ability and say 'this is why we lost', it is a lot harder to acknowledge that both sides did an amazing job and gave each other real pressure and kept this whole thing engaging. It was a huge showing by both sides, probably more people we've seen active at the same time since a long time.Do specific skills maybe need a look at ? possibly, thats what our report system is for! Though, interestingly, most of the times skills are only the issue if you lost, not when you win. We would all be better off if everyone were honest to themselves if one of their own skills was a little too good.Did wyrdenwood win this ascension? I highly doubt it. I don't think anyone can say to be able to stand in 100 power worth of bombs and rightfully claim they would survive, unless they pulled a prismatic out in the right moment.Did the lag make everything a lot worse then it should've been? Yes it was. I had a section where I watched someone else needing 3 minutes till they reached back to the present. One section where I stood alone in a room and couldn't move into any direction and another where path track from minutes ago circled me around the room my group was currently without ever landing me in the right spot. Trying to gust allies that were on a different sphere by the time the game caught up to me. We all basically played in RL aeon the whole event.Truth is, you did all very well, we had a very tight acension event that could've gone either way because both groups that showed did an amazing job at fighting and competing!
I am sorry if I came across as saying things are fine, I never meant to get this across. I don't have the knowledge to gauge whether doom has the kind of impact on this ascension that you claim it did, I can literally say next to nothing about it, aside of it being a wyrdenwood bomb. I can only say from what I've seen of this ascension, I doubt it is the case. That doesn't mean its fine, again, I don't have the expertise to make that kind of call. If you think that was the point of my post, then either my english is seriously failing me or it is what you want to read into it.
Mboagn said:Wyrdenwood Creeping had been raised as problematic before. You even have players here who play on the side of Glomdoring who at least acknowledge that something needs to change with how the skill operates. Creeping was not just "suddenly problematic during Ascension"; we saw it coming from a mile away and the powers that be chose not to do anything about it.
