    It was fun I'm assuming they will nerf Psyker when it comes out because they were so fucking strong

      I loved Psyker, but I think we're like two out of twenty people who actually played one. The only class I saw less than Psyker was Ogryn. I just hope this means both of them are safe from nerfs. Hopefully the devs will be too preoccupied with making the game run over 20fps to mow down my boyos.

        Too much melee even as vet guard, lasgun sucks.
        Why is not okay to mop zombies with a laser rifle from the future but a shovel killing 10 zombies with one swing is totally fine?
        No inquisition merc kroot character.
        Soundtrack is cool

        I don't see any reason to even play Veteran. Ogryn and Psyker are simply just the best classes in the game.
        You would think Veteran would be useful for picking off ranged units but even that doesn't work in practice since enemies have hitscan and hitstun and you can be shot by multiple enemies at once
        The Zealot is just okay, with good stun grenades and a decent engagement gap closer. But why would you play the Zealot when the Ogryn is a fucking beast that has transcended humanity to become the ultimate rusher and meat shield and and CC master and melee god?

          I found the zealot to be an amazing safety net character. It’s very hard to go down also very easy to get the team back up with the stun grenades. It’s like the Ogryn but with less blocked shots since you can rush into a crowd then crouch and let the range guys pop heads.

          Veteran has the ranged damage but also good crowd control. Free grenade every like 40 secs with good damage and throws people onto ground. And trying to rush most ranged enemies on higher difficulty is fucking suicide. Remember that veterans get perks for ranged combat and can regain toughness with gun kills unlike other classes, so they can actually go toe to toe in shootouts much better then the other classes. Psyker is good but can't clear tons of traitor guardsmen fast enough to matter.

          later on they get massive bonuses, like free toughness regen, "invisibility" to ranged units, armor penetration etc. and the ability to thin hordes and kill weaker specials almost instantly when they appear
          I was disappointed with psyker myself but I didn't level it enough I guess

      psyker is only busted on lower tier difficulty. Don't get me wrong, they are still strong, but when you get to tier 4, then horder clearing is critical and there are multiple elites running around and they don't die to a headburst.

      psyker is weak imo. the head popper takes too long and it takes multiple hits to kill the armored ones. the only real useful ability is for 2 types of mobs, the armored ogryn's and that's only because you can immediately daze them and stop their movement.

      I think Fapshark is playing to their strengths. Most people who praise Vermintide praised it for the visceral melee combat. I can only assume that they kept Darktide melee heavy because they don't have confidence in their abilities to make the ranged combat as satisfying as the melee. Which is a shame, but honestly the combat is satisfying enough even with the lacking ranged weapons, and they can justify it by saying that since the players are just prisoners, they wouldn't be given much ammo. Or something.

        If you look at eternal crusade melee was OP for a good long time, then bolters got a relatively small damage buff and melee became obsolete overnight. There is a binary choice between melee or ranged being the most powerful, they will never be equal. For the setting of 40k melee having the advantage is probably best in the long run.

          I think regardless of balance, if you make both of them fun, people will use them. I remember using the flare gun across the Far Cry series, not because it was particularly powerful, but just because it was a cool way to deal with things. The problem isn't just that ranged is weak, it's also not very satisfying. Adding bullet penetration, better gibbing, or letting you punch baseball-sized holes through cultists would absolutely mitigate some of player's apprehension to the ranged combat. And bayonets. They should add bayonets. A flashlight should be standard kit, give the auto-rife a bayonet instead.

    Why would you need anti-cheat for a game like this? Vermintide 1 and 2 didn't have anything of the sort, I was speedhacking with bots for fun
    There's no fucking reason to have anti-cheat in a non-competitive game
    If the grind is boring, fuck it, let people cheat in mats if they want

    But I guess they're going to monetize the game to hell and back and can't possibly have you cheat in the premium currency to buy shit.
    Vermintide had clear prices on cosmetics, the end, do it like that.

    I will buy it, but I hope they were hiding some stuff because man I can see it getting more boring than Vermintide 2. Darktide has to compete with CW and unless it has a Chaos Waste tier mode I can't see it being as good. Even something like Weaves-but-good would be cool

      If you've ever played a lot of a procedural map generated game of this type like Deep Rock Galactic, you'll start noticing the same caves over and over again. It's the same set pieces with a different coat of paint, rearranged. Every time you walk into the room, you know you've been in this exact layout 20 times.

        as opposed to actually literally being in this exact same place the second time you play it

          If I'm going to see the same set pieces, they are better as thematic, beautifully crafted landmarks. It's like a themepark.
          Procedural gets stale faster, when you're really there for the gameplay, not the map variety.

        • 1 month ago

          Yes but now it's the exact same place but with a thought out level design and it looks pretty, so it plays well and looks nice, instead of kind of but not really being different while having poorer design all around.

          Procedural maps can be interesting, but they work much better for certain games. A team FPS needs good map design first and foremost, procedural generation is often a hindrance, and when you are trying to balance melee vs. ranged along with a cast of elite characters and horder, knowing a how a map works and being able to play around it is great.

          It also makes it easier for the devs to touch up maps after playtesting and feedback.

          Even in something like XCOM vs. XCOM2, the procedural maps were just a different flavor, and didn't have a huge clear advantage over XCOMs handcrafted maps.
          While in X-COM, procedural maps worked better because of the more simulation nature of the gameplay and balance.

      Honestly unless all updates like classes and levels are going to be free I think I prefer Vermintide over Darktide. About the only thing I liked about Darktide that was changed from Vermintide was of course the normalisation of ranged enemies and ranged combat but I still think I still prefer any other coop shooter over it.

      I'll give it a miss at launch. I might pick it up later down the line when I can get the game + most of the post launch content for like $20 like I did with Vermintide.

    What can you do as the Psyker and the Ogryn? As in the class abilities.

      Psyker has a vent ability that causes an age explosion around themselves
      The other one from the beta was to make enemies heads assploded. Which I must say the crunch of the pop and the lingering warp stuff from the beck hole is a nice touch.
      Ogryns was to charge forward and knock bitches around or stun em. He also carries things without the penalty of the snivellies but that's not a stated ability it's just a bonus from being as big as 50 pallets of fray bentos pie

      adding onto this, Ogryns have big health bars, but they are so big it factors alot into gameplay. Since you tower over team mates and enemies, you'll be targetted by ranged enemies way more. In that way the Zealot is still a better melee fighter for dealing with the mobs whlie others fight off ranged enemies, it's a pretty interesting dynamic.

      Ogyrn also is harder to stagger and can revive team mates easier without being interrupted.
