Currently the Vesterian community and devs are at a very vulnerable part of development. This post is made to exploit this vulnerability to make this game a better game in general. This is not ment to be a pushing point to finish off Vesteria but to make it into a better game and hopefully prolong it’s damaged legacy. @berezaa, I want you to know, if you are struggling or under pressure, tell the community. Being silent will not make any situation better. If you are concerned about something and don’t have enough time to work on Vesteria, TELL THE COMMUNITY. also, @Polymorphic, @Davidii and @other devs (sorry I don’t do much research), you are not forgotten, are you forgiven? you decide.
P.S, I added a dev feedback section and I heavily suggest you guys to check it out.
GAME ISSUES AND BALANCING
Ever since the dawn of time, Mage and Warrior were insanely superior compared to Hunter. I can not stress enough, BUFF HUNTER.
Ranger is a powerful subclass and its high dps somewhat makes sense, however, bosses need a bit more ranged defence and ranger stance needs a hefty nerf.
Mages were always favoured by the devs and even somewhat the community, although this doesn’t affect most of the community, it sucks to be in the other 2 classes and see the Vesteria twitter talking about how useful cleric is or looking at how ice call instantly obliterates everything in one shot.
Map bugs including glitched mesh hitboxes, being stuck spawning outside of the map and getting randomly kicked for using teleporters suck and can drain hours of play time (especially the third one).
Losing exp at death is forgivable, losing 10% of your cash is devastating and can easily cause players to rage quit.
Mushroom Raid needs higher exp requirement as even a whole group of organised level 10s can’t even pass wave 6.
Stamina is hated not for it’s existence but for how insanely strict it can be at all times. Running for 3 seconds is sometimes a small challenge.
Bosses need much more anti ranger attacks such as Mo Ko Tu Aa’s laser attack.
Basic mob attacks need more variety than just throwing a rock/spear or just hitting you. Attacks that deal AOE, attacks that attack in a line or even special mob attacks will add variety to every day grinding.
DEV FEEDBACK AND ADVICE
DEV FEEDBACK & ADVICE
@berezaa, although your discord update announcements are often funny and satirical, it may sometimes come over as passive aggressive and sarcastic.
@Polymorphic, I’m not sure if your working on personal issues, just slacking off or if the team really bloody hates hunters but its been like 7 months since the last hunter dedicated update. (@berezaa, you’ve always seemed to have hated hunters because of the ranger subclass. I don’t want to point too many fingers but I have a feeling that hunter balances and updates are too low on your list)
@Davidii, you’ve been pretty chill with the community, I’m cool with you. Is this an issue? no. Am I going to keep it in? yes.
@ALLDEVS, please input your own opinion and may the opinion rival Bereza’s if necessary. Bereza is a great dev but having him run the wheel for too long creates problematic results such as the permadeath crisis.
@berezaa, if the community doesn’t like something, it typically means that they won’t like the thing you plan to add. Although being the guy that says “Ha, I told you this update was gonna be good” is pretty awesome, it’s not worth the risk
@berezaa, if your ever suffering financially, feel free to take some funds out of Miners Haven, maybe even work on development for a bit. MH will always welcome you with open arms. (Also OutofOrderFoxy needs some help with management and update ideas and Talon needs some mentoring)
@Polymorphic, RAT should have a damn tonne of group funds, feel free to use if your ever suffering financially personally or in development.
@Davidii, hopefully Vesteria isn’t your only source of income but if it is, hopefully Vesteria has received more than enough to pay for living fees.
@ALLDEVS, it’s nice to know if your post has been read, please slap a tag or a digital signature in the comments to tell the post maker that their ideas are read and being considered.
@Davidii, get on TEDx.
But who said it will end here?
