Koei Tecmo published the results of the survey that gathered feedback from those who played NiOh’s alpha demo last month.
They're removing durability? why? we only needed a repair option at the shrine.
Cuz babies who couldnt handle a challenge.
didn't complain myself but Kudos for Team Ninja taking lots of feedback , they are very serious about this game. now lets see if the complainers are serious or are just professional whiners. interesting thing is that Europ and America mostly like the game as it is, most complaints are from Asia, so different versions could be made.
Guys how can we talk to Koei about this?? We need it back
Making it easier for those who can't hack it.
I'd ask if the durability in the alpha was done well since the alpha expired for me.
There were people that complained about it I don't get it though because the loot in this game is very plentiful. It really didn't matter if your gear broke or not. But what can you do, manchildren will strive to ruin yet another game.
Your weapons and armor wear down pretty quick but the loot drops are plentiful. I was never short on items to keep my gear in working order. It's not survival horror shortages. A lot of enemies dropped better gear then what you have on so I was always trying different weapons. You use a whetstone to restore your weapons and a leather something for armor. It's like witcher 3 but it's more frequent. The abundance of items and the rate at which you had to use them didn't add any difficulty. It was just going through the motions. I'm good with durability or without it, it makes no difference. I think these guys are overreacting.
Please don't nerf this game!!!!!!
Looks like the game will be easier.
Hope a proper demo is released for the full game is released this time with no time limit.
Guess people don't want a demo
Durability didn't really add anything. Why do you guys think using a whetstone before combat makes the game more difficult? It's just another menu action that you don't want to waste a quick slot on. I can see why the stat guys would nerd out but not the challenge guys. I wonder how many of those people got the DLC.
I have the Alpha on my download list but haven't actually downloaded it. Will I still be able to play if I download it or does it have to connect to a server?
Nope it was a timed demo and you cannot connect to the server now
Ah bummer. Well thanks for the info.
Team Ninja is a great developer but their main strengths are obviously their skill for female character design and for handling breast physics... making them work on a game that does not feature either is a waster of their talent
They shouldn't give in to the people thst find it hard, thats part of why Souls games are what they are.. the challenge .I thought the difficulty was just right .
Souls games gave up durability a long time ago.
DS3's durability was practically non existent but Nioh's happened way too fast, they could have just made weapons a bit more durable.
Ahaha... I couldn't even beat the first boss, so I lost out on the DLC. I had a lot of fun though, and I would imagine the meta-game will be very interesting, once the full game drops.
I could understand if they wanted to tweak durability, i.e. reduce degradation rate but also reduce item drop rate to balance out, but removing it altogether has me worried the game will just end up being super easy casual bait after such a promising alpha. :(
Of course the Americas would be mostly for the character design.lol
