00:00 - 00:05We recently introduced new mechanics many players were worried to try testing
00:05 - 00:07thinking they would be broken or nerfed in the future
00:07 - 00:10So we told them they were safe, enjoy for a league
00:11 - 00:16Make the build, invest. Don't worry, just have fun
00:17 - 00:21And guess what we did just a few days later
00:21 - 00:24We nerfed it
00:29 - 00:31We nerfed it
00:31 - 00:34After so many people invested, time and currency
00:38 - 00:40We nerfed it
00:41 - 00:47So many players gutted their characters, sold all their gear just to buy the equipment
00:47 - 00:50Even some who rely on RMT to pay rent
00:50 - 00:56which we honestly just let slide, are now homeless
00:58 - 00:59Living on the streets
00:59 - 01:01Homeless with no PC
01:04 - 01:06Imagine spending multiple days played
01:06 - 01:08To gear this broken build
01:13 - 01:14We nerfed it
01:14 - 01:16We lied right to their faces
01:16 - 01:20You should've seen it
01:21 - 01:27They looked like a bunch of blizzard fans hearing the announcement for Diablo Immortal
01:35 - 01:36We nerfed it
01:36 - 01:39Even though we said we wouldn't
01:41 - 01:44But seriously,
01:44 - 01:47We thought about the mechanics before anyone even brought it up
01:47 - 01:49We knew we were going to nerf it, we just wanted to see
01:50 - 01:53if they were dumb enough to believe
01:54 - 01:56That we would seriously
01:56 - 01:58allow them to have so much fun
01:58 - 02:02Streamers, top players, new players, we gave them hope
02:05 - 02:07We nerfed it
02:10 - 02:11All the,
02:11 - 02:13all the time wasted
02:15 - 02:17We had one redditor
02:17 - 02:2013 days played, now sitting on 2c
02:21 - 02:28We had HoA players complaining about their ResidentSleeper builds and our virulence nerf, trying to ruin the surprise
02:29 - 02:30Of the nerf on Purposeful Harbinger?
02:30 - 02:32Yes the nerf on Purposeful Harbinger
02:36 - 02:39They still had no idea it was coming
02:40 - 02:42Might as well call it Purposeful Cuckoldry
02:50 - 02:55I can't believe they thought this whole time they were safe
02:56 - 02:58Do you feel any responsibility?
02:58 - 03:04Responsibility for what? Convincing these players that it was a good idea to abuse these mechanics
03:04 - 03:09Honestly, Corona just kept us from pushing the patch out sooner
03:09 - 03:11No one's been working for weeks
03:16 - 03:20And they thought it would last a league
03:23 - 03:26We're going to nerf it to the ground
03:31 - 03:36waste the entire player bases time and with it destroy the in game economy
