So, I've been away from this game for a very long time, not having really played it since a little bit before the launch of Winds of Magic. However, I did try to play one mission sometime late last August, and I am genuinely sorry to say that what I experienced way back then completely put me off from the game. This saddened me greatly, as this used to be one of my favorite games just hands down.
See, I had two main issues back then that were really detrimental to my enjoyment of the game.
- Firstly, there was the introduction of the stagger-based combat, which felt extremely burdensome for me to deal with. Like, before Winds of Magic I could take down a Stormvermin on my own using my trusty Two-Handed Axe (I played Ironbreaker pretty much exclusively) in just two or three hits on Champion difficulty. However, on the mission I did back in August after the DLC dropped, just trying to fight a single Stormvermin took bloody forever to deal with and left me nearly dead. It felt like the combat went from meaty, rewarding, and fast-paced to just tedious, overly punishing, and like trying to bash my head against a wall.
- Then there was the total removal of the Ironbreaker talent that reduced Drakegun overheat, which when combined with the new stagger mechanics made the weapon feel kind of useless. The talent combined with the weapon perk that did the same made the drakegun a breeze to manage, and it felt like I could melt through an army with that thing. It was the single best flamethrower type experience I had ever had in any game, and honestly one of the main draws I had to the game entirely (along with the combat). After Winds of Magic launched, however, it felt like I was incredibly lucky if a basic Skaven slave didn't just inexplicably power through the stream of fire and stagger me out of my attack. It didn't help that my favorite talent was replaced with one that, while it did increase the damage, also increased the overheat rate to something that felt unmanageable.
Those were the two big things that just drove me off from the game entirely. To me at least, it felt like the game was just ruined for no reason. The combat and the flamethrower were all I had, all I really played the game for. Mind you, that absolutely wasn't a problem, because I was totally content with just those two things.
However, I've been wanting to find out if it'd be worth trying to come back, if any of the aforementioned problems have been dealt with, or if it would end up being just as disappointing as it was back then. With Darktide being announced, I decided to just take the plunge and ask around here as to whether or not it would be worth my time based on what made me stop playing originally.
Any information or advice would greatly appreciated. Otherwise, I wish you all a good day.
