A legutóbbi Witch Doctorokat érintő változtatásokról

Dyingsoul . Béta, RoS 889

Több játékos is nehezményezte a legutóbbi patch notesban megfogalmazott WD változtatásokat: gyakorlatilag nerfelték a classt. Lylirra volt oly kedves és elmagyarázta hogyan megy a fejlesztésnek ezen menete: Az F & F béta kiadásakor minden kaszt jelentős túltuningot kapott. Ezután figyelik a játékosok tesztjeit, visszajelzéseit és ezek alapján az összes kasztot finomhangolják a környezetükhöz. A többi kaszt jelentős nerfje korábban kezdődött, a WD maradt így még az utolsók között és most jelentősen visszavettek a számokból, ezért tűnt fel több játékosnak is. Ennek ellenére még mindig nincs semmi kőbe vésve, a felhasználói vélemények alapján továbbra is erősíthetnek/gyengíthetnek skilleket és ez nem csak a Witch Doctorokra igaz! A teljes Community Manager gárda most infókat gyűjt a játékosoktól nem csak a kasztok finomhangolása kapcsán. Ha nektek is van ötletetek/kifogásotok/építő jellegű véleményetek, látogassatok el a hivatalos fóumokkal és tudassátok a CM-ekkel!

mostly the wd nerfs

Thanks for the follow up! Though it never feels great to see numbers go down, we felt (as well as other players who tested out the WD on Beta and PTR) that the class was a little overturned in the previous PTR/Beta build. This was especially evident in group play. So, we’re toning a lot of skills down and will see how that plays out in the next PTR/Beta build. If you’re willing to hop on the PTR once the new patch is live and provide us your thoughts, that would definitely be appreciated.

On that note actually, it’s really important to keep in mind that PTR and Beta patches are in no way final and that we’re still tuning, tweaking, and adjusting a lot of skill values. We expect that we’ll need to make some more changes once this next patch is out and you all get the opportunity to test and share feedback.

for the record there is a few of us that are die hard witch doctor players, we have put together numerous topics with idea and disccsions vs the new changes.

I can actually provide a little more insight on these particular changes.

As we transitioned from the Friends & Family to Closed Beta, all abilities from each class were highly overtuned. Over time, we whittled away at the numbers, and these passes were made by class. This is pretty par for the course in how we approach tuning. The Witch Doctor was the last one we addressed, and that happened to land at a time when we could provide the most detailed patch notes (i.e., these ones).

So no, we don’t hate Witch Doctors! They were just next up for a tuning pass and the timing wasn’t great in terms of communicating these changes.

Definitely going to go dig through those feedback posts though. Nom nom nom, feedback!

What about the demon hunter posts? Could you at least say yes or no so we at least know we aren’t getting ignored, because it definitely seems that way.

Between all of us, we go through all the class forums (and other forums too) for feedback, paying particular attention to threads that are well-formatted and constructive. I try to tackle as much as I can myself, but sometimes I do miss things. That’s why we work as a team. =) Grimiku, Vaeflare, and Lylirra all help me catch things I might not have seen otherwise.

No class is being ignored or unheard. Not every change that’s asked for will be implemented, of course, but we are here to listen, report, and discuss your feedback with development. Think of us as your liaisons – we pass on as much of your thoughts as we can and make sure your voice is being represented and recognized. (forrás)
