I want to buy the Exclusive Edition, because I feel so guilty for playing too much time as $20. :lol:

In food-based scenarios, BLUDTUPOWA casts use one food

Great; I'll definitely test this out and see if it hits the balance sweet spot.

Nice update on the badges, though for me the graphics for Ding Max and Cheeky don't fit that well, I can't really say why.

On the topic of badges: Cheeky really is the only badge that isn't hard to get and is the normal way to go almost every time. Maybe it could be altered in some way to be a challenge like the others?

The same goes for Ding Max but to a lesser degree. You won't get it always but it's not a disadvantage to reach level 10 while all the others are.

Since the specialist badge was altered, it's also been exceedingly easy to attain.

I'll be honest I like that some of the badges are pretty easy, it gives me something within reach to strive for on dungeons where I can barely win anyway. On the other hand I like that there are badges that are really difficult and represent a significant increase in difficulty so that I know this game will always have huge challenges around every corner.

I think the badges strike a pretty nice balance as is. :)

I think I'm with Jay on this one. Nice to get at least one badge after completing a run.
Cheeky may not always be easy, vicious could present a bit of challenge there.

I love the new badges! This isn't a change I was expecting at all, but they add flavor to the completed dungeon runs. I have to say though, when I saw the picture next to the update I thought we were getting the new map this week :P I'm really excited for it!

So do I. In fact if there were any option available right now I'd just go ahead and upgrade my version. I've said this before, but this game easily puts to shame the average 60$ game in pretty much every way. Keep up the good work! =D

Yeah, I'm pretty sure a lot of us would buy the exclusive edition if we could... which is exactly why it won't be opening back up.

I must say I like the new badges. On the topic of badge difficulty, it is nice to have cheeky as an easy badge you can get so you get at lease ONE. As for specialist, it can actually be quite tricky in some situations, although not half as much as it used to be. Even still, due to immunities, it is only viable in this current form.

I see that it is nice to have an easy badge, but cheeky is too easy for my taste, It doesn't feel like an accomplishment. It doesn't seem to make a difference for vicious, I have it on both dungeons I won and on Halls Of Steel it's the only one I got.
I like that it promotes the idea of higher level kills, so maybe it could be changed to something like "never killed a same level monster (except the boss)". This way it would be relevant for the whole run and not be done after the first kill.

How was specialist changed?
