Same as it ever was. Terrible, but not changed.

Before the latest patch my 732 ranger was still MW.

 

Now it's Legendary...

 

I would have preferred to have worked for the title rather than just be given it.. Oh well no biggie i guess although what is a mess is the state of the loot.

 

How can supposedly weaker items be better than Legendary?

 

I don't really notice any difference in game play but still this really confuses the * out of me

It's much better accessing contracts and strongholds from one main menu. Chasing round Tarsis was a tad annoying to say the least.

 

I finally finished the challenge located on the way to Brins (plaque is on the wall) reward is xp, monies and a vinyl (Red skull). I'm glad that's out of the way... Do you guy's go in for achievements?

 

I kinda do them as I go along but don't really grind for them.


Yeah I do, gives the game some purpose. Have you noticed any new glitches? Was just playing a legendary contract and the game kept freezing, then i lost sound, then i could see any enemies. Everyone is shooting at things i cant even see.  And the new SH, which i don't like, is 3 times harder than Heart of rage on GM3, when I'm on GM2. Difficulty seems worse and my screen says for GM2 recommended 475+ again.

I like some changes, but seems more glitchy and random than ever. And still only got the 1 lego yesterday. 


Seems I've been lucky regarding bugs and glitches. 

 

I got a server shut down notice today (GM3 Freeplay) but on the whole the game runs pretty smoothly. (at least for me)

I know what you mean. With the extreme rarity of legendaries they should be exceptionally better. Noticed that one of my gear offers 300% charges, but only applies to that item. Which begs the question, is that how all things work? Does the 125% weapon damage only apply to the one weapon or both? 

 

Also, with the Javelin requirement being lowered again, should not that mean if I'm still on GM2 with a 760 javelin it should be a piece of cake. GM3 should be easy as well, but not the case.

My main weapon is a legendary LMG with one inscription saying +200% damage. Now I've always assumed that particular bonus is for that weapon and that weapon alone.

Luck seems different and seems stackable although we don't really know this for certain. It would be nice if they gave you an actual Luck attribute which you could then monitor.

Seems like they should be for all weapons though, right?

 

You get inscriptions that are just for lmg, grenade launcher, etc. But if it just says weapon it should be for all weapons. If you inscription says 8% acid damage that applies to all acid damage doesn't it? 

 

There has to be some clarification.  And don't get me started on luck again. Lol.

Heh.. Dev team have acknowledged inscription issue:

 

  • Lower stats on components, gear and weapons – The current values on some items are incorrect and show a lower value than before the update. This is a visual issue and does not impact stats provided.
