Topic: Astroflux / Power boost and DoT effects

I figured as much. It’s more of a “would be great to have, but not necessary” kind of thing. Thanks for the reply :)

Topic: Astroflux / Power boost and DoT effects

Does anyone know if the Power skill that increases damage is supposed to NOT increase Damage over Time effects?

I main the Acid Blaster. When I use the skill, my per shot damage increases as it should. However, the DoT effect from the acid remains unchanged.

Is this working as intended due to the stacking nature of Acid or another reason?

Acid pre-level 16 has been a great weapon for me in both PvE and PvP but as I level up, it’s becoming less effective and the power boost skill would be great to alleviate this if it affect DoT.

Topic: Astroflux / Suggestions - For fixing exponentially increasing upgrade costs!

If you just treat it like any other game with purchasable upgrades, just let each classification of upgrades scale on it’s own. Buying upgrades for weapons shouldn’t increase the cost for upgrading engines, for instance. After that, just increase the cost of the upgrades to make it so that you can’t upgrade everything in a short amount of time.

Topic: Astroflux / PVP Is the reason I quit

The PvP is essentially Pirates v. Police. Police (non-hostile) have the advantage in not having to worry about friendly fire outside of a team. Without the possibility of being preyed upon, this game would be a horrid grind fest. Learn to kite, run, check the map, etc… Not every iteration of MMO needs to “fit the mold.” Look at Realm of the Mad God. You get one life. You die and you lose everything you’ve worked for. It’s frustrating at first, but it forces you to become a better player.

It’s the developer’s choice to be different with their designs. I for one, enjoy the setup. Could it be tweaked and/or rebalanced? Certainly. Could players try to cooperate more to stick it back to the “assholes” who want to play out their fantasies of universal domination? That’s all up to you.
