IKR. The Wispa bar blows all those meagre choco bars out of the water.

Someone says "X is OP! Nerf it!"

 

Most people on the forums already know that a nerf from ND is likely to be taken too far, or to nerf the wrong elements and simply break things worse, but in a new way.

 

Most people who have seen ANY developers attempt to rebalance a game that's "fine" in an effort to make it "perfect", have seen them fail - usually quite spectacularly. Pro-tip: Your game will NEVER be perfect to everyone.
 "Fine" to the majority is great. Amazing and incredible and perfect to a handful and good to the majority with only a handful of whiners is highly impressive. TLOU is at the highly impressive stage, but any major changes, or too many minor changes, and it will quickly start losing fans.

 

"It's fine" is a perfectly valid reason not to make major changes to ANYTHING in ths game, but in general, game devs have a tendency to be EXTREMELY over-zealous in buffing and nerfing things, and ND have a reputation for being a bad example of that tendency.

 

EDIT: It's also popular - and generally expected - for a developer to try and fix everything at once. This is never a good idea. Changing ONE item in a small way has a ripple effect that alters the entire dynamic of the game. If you rebalance everything at once, you lose focus on what each change actually did.

Also, to whoever said "caramel + chocolate over everything".

 

Um, "Simply Caramel Milkway". Comes in a golden wrapper

 

Need I say more?

The game is simply put "not fine". A current trend I see alot is a team running all SARS and spamming projectiles like crazy. Where is the variety? I hardly ever see HR's or burst rifles, bows, or any purchasable guns. They are becoming rarer by the the day.

Anecdotal.

4.) Mods knows what they're doing.
3.) It doesn't fit the world paradigm.
2.) I'm not in it for the money.
1.) The player pool will be consolidated.

Jokes aside, don't you see a problem with everyone wh*ring out the SAR while throwing projectiles like crazy? Variety and stealth for that matter, have gone out the window.

Hahaha, same here. Yeah, must ppl use SARs, but I see the other guns a lot too. I still get into number of games with no SARs
