Dissatisfied Customer - pulling the rug out on Yar

DB, I get your commitment to game balance, but people invested resources in Yar because of her ship ability. She was a bit OP. But it is the only reason to own her. You went and turned her into a less useful T'Kumva in response to some groussing one week after you introduced her. I wasted time, money, and in game resources pushing her to 100 that I would not have invested with her now that you gimped her. What battle do you think lasts long enough to have a third opportunity to use that ability? What player do you think is going to hit that ability on phase 1 or 2? Did you think removing the charge use limit somehow made up for crippling her?! I am not happy.

    I agree. I burned a ton of boosts because I wanted Yar for her ship ability. Now that she's nerfed I want those boosts back.
  • It would be ok if they'd removed the Evasion penalty too

    How can you get +550 FOR evasion and at the same time DECREASE evasion by 2? lol :smiley:
    Dear DB: Non sequitur. Your facts are uncoordinated.

    Shan picked a bad time for vacation. This was handled badly. I agree they had to do something, but not offering something to people that went all in (I have one copy and just 2 stars on her) is wrong. With the evasion penalty she isn't even worth putting on the bridge anymore.

    She's basicly Locutus with a small punch. No where even close to a Killy
  • Are you freaking kidding me?? I don't think she is remotely OP and I went for her because of skirmish events, which was the main focus of lots of people!!! This is just wrong to do it like a day AFTER the event.

    And the day before a skirmish is starting. I have other cards I could have leveled last week for a bridge spot in preparation.

    This is totally unacceptable. I'd say unbelievable, but we are talking about Disruptor Beam. :/
  • Cpt. CavemanCpt. Caveman ✭✭✭✭
    They could have just changed her from 2s to 6s and would have balanced her to Killy

    I was going to skip Yar because of the horrible art, but I went for the event after all because of her ship abilities. I do agree with the 'they had to do something', she was very much overpowered. I just hope they handle complaints and compensation well....
  • EtienneEtienne ✭✭✭
    I don't feel ripped off myself because I did not need her for her ship abilities.... I have better guys then her. I have her 2/5 but knew going in that she wasn't going to do much to improve my crew.

    However, I understand how people are feeling and I agree, you should be able to get a refund on money spent if you did not receive the product you were promised. I guess is really up to you and if you really feel this is something worth going to war over.
  • Think the e-mail problem is probably because I'll need to restart my game?

    Wow I am glad I didnt buy a bunch of yar packs last night to finish her. Really poorly done by DB. This was terrible. They didn't properly test her, they didnt give people a heads up during the event that they were going to nerf her stats so that they didnt buy a bunch of packs, and then they did a quick nerf right before a ship skirmish event where everyone with her had levelled her up in preparation for the event. Now no compensation to the people that spent tons to get her.
  • V.V. ✭✭✭
    I skipped getting her due to the art, it being a faction event, and because I suspected this was coming. They should just have waited a month for the nerf then it would be business as usual for most games.

    if you were around when Chaotica was released, you had to have known this was coming. It was pretty obvious a nerf would be coming.

    She has a slower initialize, shorter duration, and negative 2 evasion. A single 100% damage attack doesn't make up for that. Plus I'm sure I'm not the only one who already had Locutus and went out of my way to get her.

    I feel sorry for DB's customer service employees. They are gonna be swamped due to the lack of proper planning for Polywater Yar before her release.
  • i actually am happy i did not chase Yar and am thankful for her nerf could be overkill but she needed the nerf anvil for sure
