  1. More bit from my 2.0 run

    BNW fights in general are about finding the right setup to deal with whatever it is you're facing. In the case of Dullahan, you're dealing with a fire attack where you have limited Fire mitigation (Tiger Mask) and don't have access to Shell. You also only have access to one thing that provides death immunity, assuming you found the Ribbon. And then the party is Forced to boot. I think these situations are really interesting to solve and what makes BNW fun. Thinking of a solution and then watching that solution actually work the way you would expect is good design. You couldn't figure out how to mitigate the fire damage, so you just ate it and hoped the zombie army would work in your favor. That's a perfectly viable (albeit RNG-reliant) strategy. I don't think adding Wall Rings to Kohlingen is a good idea personally.
  2. There's a handful of rages, such as the IMTRF encounters and Stray Cat. Once you leave the WoB a few Rage Formations are gone forever if you never actually saw them.
  3. BTB has been just as consistent at saying he hates challenge dungeons and in general, challenge stuff that is harder than the final boss of the game. BNW's "challenge dungeon" is Kefka's Tower. There's also half a dozen ways to impose restrictions on BNW and make it truly difficult. As well as NHT. If you want to scratch the challenge itch, that's the way to do it.
  4. There's a 2.0.1 planned with a set of bugfixes slated sometime eventually soon but beyond that, there's no further plans for the game. 2.0 was in development for nearly a year and a half. I don't think anyone wants to open the Pandora's box again for the forseeable future.
  5. I pretty much agree 100% with everything you've said. These are legitimate issues with BNW and I've tried to push back on BTB's design philosophy over the years to help some of this. Classic JRPGs always have the "COOL" factor. BNW discards most of this for balance, even with the "ultimate" weapons. For all its faults, vanilla FF6 was a true JRPG complete with all sorts of "holy crap I'm god" moments. BNW gets rid of almost all of those as it attempts to achieve a true balance. I definitely prefer to keep levels lower so the combat is more demanding. I have found that the combat is the most rewarding part, similar to SMT: Nocturne. Even if there aren't a lot of JRPG moments, there's still a lot of powerful build and party setups to be had in BNW. Kaiser is getting an HP buff in 2.0.1, for what it's worth. Nice post dude.
  6. Good Morning or Whatever!

    Our dating discord. Lots of hot singles there: https://discord.gg/TEYj3q
  7. Bropedio has pushed out a patch that fixes a lot of the current RC27 issues. See the pinned messaged in Discord.
  8. This formula is a Synchsyi fix so it may take a bit to actually happen unless someone like Bropedio drops a fix on us. Nice find.
  9. Interest check - 1.3 Tournament 2017

    Kaffe said all I was gonna say. I was memeing at you not shutting you down. I’ll look forward to your reply in another four months
  10. Probably a known issue and probably a vanilla issue.
  11. Just to clarify for those who can’t watch: this is using Meteo after it’s dead.
  12. Idk (Think has given us a lead to work with; I'll pass it along to Synchysi or someone else)
  13. Behemoths are currently Berserkable in RC25 and also there was a large no encounter section of the veldt. BTB has likely fixed them but posting for posterity. (Yep, already slated for fix in RC-26)
  14. Minor display bug that’s worth documenting but probably not fixing: A character will get their turn before the ATB bar is completely full as indicated via the new animation.
  15. There’s a lot of new stuff coming in. A lot. Trying to use a 1.9 save will likely softlock or generate all kinds of weird item combinations. It won’t be playable.
