If you were just playing standard Meleetard character build you wouldn't notice any changes cause they want meleetard to be the only viable character build.

They nerfed both miracles and a lot of the high end soul magic along with some bows. The excuse was they didn't like how people were out ranging many of the bosses... which was a legitimate tactic because many of the bosses have such horrible attack magnetism they look like they are ice skating.

The lightning spear line of spells got it the worst though from 10 base casts down to 3... along with a 25% nerf to damage dealt. They claim the nerf to damage was supposed to be buff, but they have never corrected this "mistake".

add in the fact that Hexes were never touched despite a large portion of the player base believing those to be the actually op spell tree.

and then to top it all off when they announced the game they showed it with Direct x11 graphics and it looked amazing. When the game came out... no direct x11 and now they plan to sell an "ultimate" edition or whatever with the originally advertised direct x11 graphics, and there has been no mention of even a discount for those who own the base game.

First off, Dark souls 2 is made by Fromsofts B team, dark souls 1 and bloodborne is made by their A team so they're going to be different qualities of experience
secondly
80% of the combat in Dark souls is designed around melee, the casting system in dark souls 2 is really shitty to begin with since it's essentially your character standing perfectly still for a couple of seconds then either shooting magic everywhere randomly or shooting it at a locked on target, it puts all the 'play' into your opponents hands, classifying every one that doesn't use magic as 'meleetards' is dumb as fuck because melee combat in dark souls 2 actually requires a ton more skill and the general play style between weapons varies far more than the play style between spells.
Third
If you want to use magic to nuke or damage people Sorcery, hexes, and pyromancy are still perfectly viable, miracles big thing is that they're the only way to heal in most instances of PVP and if anything the nerf opened up more options for building by delegating some of the features of magic across the different types.
fourth
there's plenty of builds that are perfectly viable right now, everyone in my household uses a different build and we're all about 40-60% win rate average in the brotherhood of blood (I use a hybrid sword and sorcery build, my brother uses a quality strength and dex build, my other room mate uses a dark hex build, we all stopped leveling at 150)
Fifth, miracles were OP as fuck before, miracle builds were topping in almost all of the dark souls 2 high levels of play because between miracles and the 'warmth' spell which is a little impractical since it heals enemies that's the only way to heal in PVP. They nerfed miracles offensive abilities in order to give people some sort of incentive to use other forms of magic.

As for the DX 11 thing I can't really comment on that since I run it on the PS3.

you do know you can just upgrade to directx11 when 10 comes out right?
User avatar #166 - stuckinapool (03/23/2015) [-]
Ohhh that explains a lot. I used a melee-miracle hybrid and I quit for awhile and when I came back I was like "oh, it's only 3 casts per spell? Guess I just forgot it was so low"

That's stupid though honestly. Lightning spears were the only reliable offensive miracles to me.
#164 - wyldek (03/23/2015) [-]
I beat it as a straight sorcerer at about slvl 125. So I guess you're only talking about NG+? And I feel like faith was never supposed to be a main stat, but something you hybrid with something else for support. There just aren't enough damage miracles to keep you going through the early game.

Center seems odd to me because your left wing is our right/center. Except that for most of the world a left wing does not go insane with feminist or equality ideas, they go for large social programs with taxing the higher class.

In the comics Nick Fury became the new Watcher, and left earth.
His son Nicholas Fury jr. Who is black (Fury likes to dip in chocolate) is now working for the shield.
Nick Fury jr. is based on Ultimate Fury and movie Fury.
User avatar #16 - vampiricmalice (02/18/2015) [-]
He has been black since the Ultimate universe launched almost 15 years ago

you are correct
User avatar #9 - kerfufflemachtwo (02/18/2015) [-]
He's black in the Ultimate universe, not the main one.

In fact, if I remember right, when they first did the ultimate universe, they modeled that Fury after Samuel.

I don't think we should be isolationist but neither can we be world police. In my opinion we should work with international organizations like the UN, EU, and NATO to try to promote stability and peace and stop unilateral incursions into other countries. Sending our military as part of an international peace keeping effort is justifiable, but acting like a unipolar hegemony is both unfeasible and damages our capability to support ourselves at home.

Our infrastructure is falling, our school systems are crap, we have the highest rate of incarceration in the world and we spend most of our discretionary budget on a military that is simply unnecessary in this day and age. The american people suffer as a result of our single minded pursuit of absolute military supremacy in a world where our only enemies left are religious fanatics hiding in caves and building bombs out of fertilizer. I do not advocate total disarmament but it is not and should not be our job to dictate domestic policy to other countries at the end of a gun.

I remember my history professor my sophomore year of college changed my view of the US foreign policy and how, because of it, something like 9/11 was bound to happen, and we only can really blame ourselves (don't misinterpret what I'm saying. Innocent people don't deserve to die, ever. It can never be justified, BUT something was bound to happen because of our "World Police" shit).

we have 10 air craft carrier groups. Britain has the second most with 2 and france has the third most with 1 if i recall correctly. Compared to any other single country (or most of them combined) our navy dwarfs theirs. Also as you pointed out we aren't fighting any wars now or in the foreseeable future where we will need to project power across more than one theater, so a world-spanning navy just isn't neccesary

Thanks a lot for using a comparison, hope you are well.

It is if we insist on being "World Police" and pissing everyone off like we've been doing since the cold war. The world has become increasingly unstable in the last couple years or so, so our job as dumbass world police is going to get more difficult.

I'm all for a military reduction, but it would require a huge change in the way we view ourselves and the world. Not to mention NATO would have a shit-fit if we cut spending too much.

We can't have it both ways. Either leave people alone and have a smaller military, or piss people off and make sure you can back it up.

I dunno man. You seen them Apache helicopters? I hear they have machine guns AND missles.

Really though, you dont need that much stuff to cover the ground we need to cover when scouting is as easy as using a joystick from a base in america to control a drone flying higher than a person can see and our pilots fly at supersonic speeds. Know how much ground they can cover? A metric shit ton.

Bruh,

We don't need a bigger navy, we have the largest naval capacity of any nation on planet Earth. We also never played "world police," we just thinly veiled the fact that we were at war with communism.

As far as modern warfare goes, we haven't fought a symmetrical war in a long time, but, if we needed to, we are still very well equipped to do so. Russia and China are the most dangerous opponents we have at the moment, but we also have allies up our ass so it'd still be like fighting asymmetrical warfare against one or both of those nations.

And we fire missiles nowadays... so... bayonets are kind of obsolete....
