Have to say, aside from some connectivity issues, they improved a fair bit with this content dump. Of course, loading times are still far too long, as is respawn time.
But gunplay is good, they've moved off the frankly ridiculously broken Tesla Dome and Flamer primer / combo that meant a colossus could solo most things and have made melee a bit more functional with melee weapon slots.
It won't keep me focused for long, but I think this is a step in the right direction. Now, they just need to do a Warframe and optimise the system over time, if they want this to make a comeback.
I would like to correct my previous statement: the masterwork detonator blades for Interceptor give you 10% resistance increase on each hit that lasts 10 seconds and can be stacked five times.
And I got my hands on a masterwork primer stunstick for Ranger today. Every hit adds 3% to the Ultimate bar. That's even crazier. Too bad I had absolutely zero luck on the Colossus melee, as that's my most neglected Javelin and I would like to boost it a little bit.
Ben Irving, one of the lead producers on Anthem, has left the Bioware/EA:
Unless EA is willing to stick with Anthem over the next couple of years in hopes of Bioware pulling itself together, I think it's safe to conclude Anthem is truly doomed. I don't see it being updated, let alone supported past 2020.
I wonder where he's going to work now. I'd scroll down the comments in the thread to see if he mentions it...but I've learned not to scroll down Twitter threads.
Twitter thread comments are cesspools, just like Youtube comments.
Nah it looks like he just left.
Something is changing on the main map. A big-ass tentacle made from those keyhole-like metallic thingers lying around just wrecked the ruins of the Library of Dunar.
Also, the new masterwork/legendary weapons are mostly fun to use, there are two that are too weird to use and Bad Omen is basically a Fusion Rifle from Destiny with all the aiming difficulties involved, but the rest is all right. Jarra's Wrath, AKA the one from the bullshit first trailer is in and works like an electric shotgun. Razorwing chucks buzzsaws that bounce between enemies. There's a chain lightning gun, a laser that deals more and more damage with each second, etcetera. The weird ones shoot out a slow ball of energy and call down a powerful lightning from the sky.
