Any hope for a twerk patch?

Postby MTaur on Sat Feb 07, 2015 6:50 am

I don't always remember whether I have Bysseps cast. And there are a lot of statuses to look through sometimes. So I think it's time we use animations in Desktop Dungeons.

It would be instant and unmistakable - if my character were to turn around, lean forward, and enter a seductive looping hip gyration animation, I would know that this untamed raw energy has to be a +30% attack bonus and 3% resistance erosion on my next attack.

I was worried that it might be borderline troll, but I meant it in good sport. I'm glad it was a hit. :)

The only person that coudl be considered to be trolling is Lujo, and I don't think anyone would be bothered by that (including Lujo). Good work.

I am missing a lot of context, but Lujo seems ok to me. It's easier for me to ignore his passion about some topics because this game isn't my baby and I don't have to justify anything to anyone. Maybe there's some pattern and I just haven't been here to see the conclusion of the arc. I don't know. But at any rate, fun with spelling!

Well, as Darvin said, if this is trolling anyone it's trolling me (and well, anyone arguing for possible tweaks and interested in discussing them), and I didn't respond with indignation :)

Still, it did make me a tiny bit sad, because I didn't post either the potential tweak patch discussion or the "let's see what we know about knockback" thread to provoke anything but discussion. Passion, perspective, lack of tact and history gets in the way of me getting taken seriously by the devs these days (except MIStaken for troll), but it's not like anything can change that much anyway in either direction.

EDIT:But! You know, when a game is this good (and I suppose sucessful) it's kinda easy to see a suggestion like "add a clear number of how much damage you knockback for, possibly to the popup which shows up when you hover over your damage" as nitpicking, making it look like players can only suggest silly things doesn't really help. Dislekcia seems to think that the rules for knockback and blink interactions, for example, are self-evident and if I write that I'm never able to figure them out on my own when I start playin again after a pause is trolling (I assure you I't isn't). Neither are the rules for when (or even whether) Pissorf bypasses physical resistance and when it doesn't, but this sort of thing just makes it easier to dismiss such a complaint if it's coming from me and make me look like more of an unreasonable weirdo... And I'm not bringing that stuff up for my sake.

The wiki is definitely a lifesaver. I'd be in favor of improving tooltips and so on, but anyone who wants to get really good at DD is going to stumble across the wiki anyway. And I can understand that there are other priorities that might be valued differently.

Anyway, I'd like to stay off-topic. Can we give the twerk update a trial run for one race/class/gender at least? I vote female Elf Berserker or maybe Gorgon.

Yeah, but having to wiki for a starting set glyph and an othwrise rather intuitive-looking mechanic is not "trying to get really good at DD". Only reason it looks that way is because it looks confusing. Plus, wiki's have a tendency to lead you to other stuff, no reason to get a newbie link-binging for something elementary like that.

Ofc, god knows what's going on, all we can do is put up an issue see if anyone else's also noticed, etc...

By all means, by all means, just wanted to say no hard feelings XD May I suggest dwarves for those who like large posteriors and can't tell a falsehood on the subject?

Male Dwarf Monk for that Friar Tuck factor? Seems fair enough.
