Man u are clearly mc first mage is caster barb is tank giving barb immunity while he is tanker thats almost unbeaten second seeker pull is 4 yards and expert means cant use sun net for 2 secs dk pull 5 yards and with relic its 7 yards how is that fair ? Warden dmg too low i got +10 warden and i do 200 dmg on +8 locks make a video for me go seals and show me how u beat barb dk lock pt with elf then ill stfu 

So what if mage is a caster it does not change the fact that you can use immunity to go threw there stuns and stun them

seeker can go invisible and run fast to help him go behind locks and charmer before fights to net 1 lock and pull the other away to help you kill the last party member in 3v3

thats the reason seeker is good because he can use him invis to make others busy

ofc his ability's are low range, that's why locks wont be able to see you in the first place, don't charge them if you know there ability's have high range

because yards wont matter if you use invis

and again with the +10 amping

use guard protection to help your team mate survive locks

wait for seeker to net and pull then rush at the remaining

you are a "Warden" who in the first place was created to fulfill the tank rule in elf side not the damager

and why warden damage is low? he use the same items all melee users have, if his expert lowers him power then don;t use it

that skill was intended to tank not to deal damage

 

and just to remind you in arena it does not matter if you are a mc or a elf because you will fight anyone there

so don't assume if we are mc or elf just because of that:dizzy-crazy-rabbit-emoticon:

U keep talking about seeker invisible and kill from behind lol u know charmer have skill that let him and pt members see the invisible enemies ? So its useless and im talking about 2 locks and 1 charmer pt and for warden he is the only tank with only 2 skills dmg and its pretty low every other tank got 3 or more dmg skills and control skills poor warden 30% dmg less like if the dmg was huge anw to kill 30% of it or like if the energy consumption which is 12 per 4 secs wasnt enough to make it bad skill all wardens r 0% pent cuz of that skill still ppl will act tough like u at forum just cuz they mc and they like what happen to elf for me i got np i can leave the game and play better one but im just saying this game going to die cuz of the huge nerfs elfs getting and huge buffs mc getting if this game want to be real game like coc they need listen to all sides not just one side thats all and sry for the harry potter story

so happy all AoAl bds came here to talk in group :3 I guess no one of current bds remembers old counter? hit bd with counter and you get killed by counter while bd afks xD not surprised that you wish it back. I remember these running bds in arena who tried just use counter and run, or in seals 3x bds xD :D tell me what happens when +10 bd max dmg bd hams first vs +10 lock? 99% chance lock dies, what's fair in that? Ask from locks :o if you didn't see, lock or charmer haven't "sleep" relics, or charmer stuns isn't 24/7, you can hit first after stone rock if u got faster fingers xd just switch bd, every class sucks vs some other classes, there is not "perfect class" yet for win all pvps and arenas :D

And it is not a most powerful skill it just a crap skill power of blades bd need stun skills like barb dk 

Yes! Make every class the same. Stun, control, heal, etc. So that everyone have perfectly the same chance.

Bullcrap.

If you hate being killed by charmer, make a charmer and you will also kill full amped bladedancers naked. If you hate being stun cycled by barbarian (which is not true, actually barbarian skills has low chance to stun, I don't know what you were talking about), create a barbarian. Simple.

 

To be honest, I believe that those who cry here like "I wasted ma money on ya, I bought lot's of MC", have never even purchased ANY Miracle Coins.

warden he is the only tank with only 2 skills dmg and its pretty low

 

Warden have 4 damage skills 2 normal "Powerful Blow" and "Shocking Blow" 2 expert skills "Powerful lunge" and "Shield Throw"

warden 30% dmg less like if the dmg was huge anw to kill 30% of it or like if the energy consumption which is 12 per 4 secs

Ofc it do that, because that ability give you permanent stone skin, (correct me i'm wrong) do 45% less damage

come on, that amount of less damage with warden armor and resilience

 

and you think its fair to pay more money to win?, not everyone can pay hundred of dollars into a game

I did not say that. I know you really spend a lot of money on this game, Elasiri, I did not mean that to you. But I really say that it was exactly your own decision. You should not expect any favour from the developers in exchange for you spending money. You buy the Coins, which with you gain some advantage against other players. But that's it. There is no other privilige than that. You won't get any word in the development of the game by purchasing Miracle Coins. This is why I say it's useless to whine about you buying Coins. If you'd stand up with real arguments, I would maybe even understand you.

 

Yes, this game needs some balance fixes at certain classes. But balance doesn't mean equality. Some classes do well in other circumstances, you shouldn't compare a tank to a caster, when they have different abilities. You shouldn't try to tank with a caster.

 

And what do you mean by VIP? This game is already too pay-to-win, a VIP system would ruin the game economy.

If VIP 10 is 35% more dmg this game would be broken. Those ppls would go war,arena and castles and they would be immortal (if life steal). 

If this damage would be only in pve i dont see any problem

Also if those ap,gp and amp chanches would be only on that specific VIP level then why would someone get VIP10, if you want to amp you get to vip 3. But then there would have to be button whether or nlt you want VIP points cuz ppls who amp and buy signs with mcoins would overlevel their rank

It could break ws cuz: peoples buy seeker stams to get vip and get increased drop rate. Then they would spam dgs and get lots of drops. Then there would be more items with lower prices

Ela didn't reply to my long message to him :D

 

VIP system in these games is accessible by anyone. Only then it makes sense. I mean there are two ways to get it: with patience (get exp with daily login) and by purchasing.

This way old players who have patience but for some reason they don't intend to spend money can get these priviliges, too. And the inpatient can buy their way out.

You need to keep this in mind. Spending money in games is not something you should expect a reward from, but only a faster way to develop your character. If other games do that, it means they do not care of players who, attracted by curiosity, come and see the game and the pvp system. What would be the reaction of a Ftp player who sees someone stronger than him just cause he spent more money? Not to count that a game should encourage on spending, and not forcing.

Yea, and who would give them back the ftp players they lost by doing that? And what about the bad feed backs people will do? You won't believe that, but ftp players do an op work for the game, if they see that this game has got nice stuff in.

 

I am a mcoin user and as that, I am totally against such system, unless it is how Benny said: achievable with patience, and not on how heavy your wallet is.

Ela it is COMPLETELY your choice to spend half your salary on a game. You shouldn't look down on others for not doing that. Because that's exactly what you've just done with Higgings. He is not less of a man for keeping his earnings for meaningful things in life.

I don't judge you, but you really shouldn't brag with killing your life into a game. Especially if, as I come to understand, it's not even worth it.

As first, I don't see where a mcoin user is vauled dependently on how much money you spend; in my opinion, even 0.1$ is a mcoin purchase. If you have got so much money to spend here, it's your own business, and mind, please, not to start making calculations on other's finances, since, even in this case, it is not your business.

Another thing you are not allowed to talk about, since it is not your business. I may tell you what I have done for several years, but would be wasted words with you.

 

And again, that's your own business spending money  into a game. No one forced you.

Just for you to know, the one who should not talk here about this system it's you, since you are going off topic. If you want to speak about this, I invite you to create a dedicated topic on the section "Suggestions". Thank you!
