    Default Free Realms Combat Update - Difficulty Rating Increased

    A new story entry has been added:

    [drupal=2420]Free Realms Combat Update - Difficulty Rating Increased[/drupal]

    Since the Combat update in late 2009--which brought many changes to the system previously put in place in Free Realms--members have been requesting a review and changes to many aspects of the system. Some of these changes brought with the latest update include an increase in the difficulty to the dungeons in higher tiers, a highly requested and looked for modification to the combat system as many members found it much too easy compared to the original system used in Free Realms.


    The Combat Changes made are as follows:
    • Difficulty Increase: Encounters with a difficulty rating of 2 or higher have had their difficulty raised. The difficulty changes in tier 2 encounters might not be very noticeable, but it should be more apparent in tier 4 and 5 encounters.

    • The Angry Bear!: This encounter has been re-done. The reason for this is new players start in Highroad Junction and this encounter will most likely be the first combat encounter we see, so we wanted it to be cooler. Some of our artists including Floyd helped out with this one check it out if you get a chance.

    • Tavern Cellar: The boss fight with Cal got a slight cosmetic update. Nothing major just some new effects.



    The Free Realms team has also stated that they will continue to review the suggestions found here on the official SOE forums, and implement changes to the Combat system. However, it has also been stated that the old combat system will not be returning, simply modifications will be made to the new one.

    You can read more about the recent combat changes at the SOE forums by clicking HERE.

    Thomas Edison's last words were 'It's very beautiful over there'.
    I don't know where there is, but I believe it's somewhere, and I hope it's beautiful.

    Just a suggestion.......Maybe, if SOE could, They would be able to do more than two attacks, like the five if you got to level 20? Its just a suggestion, but i liked using a boomerang to sneak attack fro a distance, you know? But It's really good that they modified it!

    Oh dear... I hope SOE didn't misunderstand.. I don't think any of us were asking for the dungeons to be more difficult as far as pressing our number 1 keys more.
    I think we all were asking that we would have to use our brains a little more not our fingers.

    I fought with a group in Troll Fort yesterday and my fingers started to go numb and then guess what I got on the wheel? A pink potion!!! I think the thing we hate the most about the new combat is getting potion on the wheel after spending all that time turning our fingers numb.

    I don't hate the new system and at this point I don't even remember the old system except that we had little quests inside the dungeons to solve and we were more likely to get fun things when we battled.

    If they have changed the combat to where now the only difference is that we have to push the number 1 button more then ...PLEASE.... SOE!!!! fix it back!!!!

    Don't know how they can improve combat. I really lost interest when they changed it. Click click click...no thinking involved.

    I do hope they changed bosses so that they do attack you instead of running away.

    Also, it's nice to hear that they made it harder. If only we could have the old combat system though...I miss it.

    This is not what we asked for! Although... If this makes it easier to lvl up... I'll take it!
