Low FPS/Framerate drop fix ?
Today I decided to play DD again since I had great fun with it almost 1 year ago.
As I started the game I had a very low framrate (10-15 fps) rigth from the beginning which made the game unplayable. As i restarted the game again the Framrate s...
I would like to share with you some of the builds that I use. Videos should be clearer than screenshots. They are modified towards lower stats. 3-4k stats is sufficient to clear the whole game. If you say otherwise, it just means you need more practice...
Heyo fellow Defenders!
With the recent release of Moonbase challenge which includes two unique pets, of which one of them, namely Treadmill on a Treadmill (ToT), is particularly difficult to obtain, based on this fact I've decided to share some o...
Let's see if I can put my thoughts together on this...
When I first heard about Dungeon Defenders I was incredibly excited. I've loved Tower Defense games for a while and always been a fan of Co-Op games. So when I heard there was a Co-Op Tower Defense RPG coming out I couldn't wait! Once my friends and I got our hands on it we had a blast. Sure it had some problems... Squires were OP, Survival was too easy, ranged enemies would attack behind the spawn shield... but it was really fun! Eventually the first part of their expansion came out, that's when things went downhill.
Trendy decided to add a new difficulty level in their expansion, since players thought the game was too easy. On "Nightmare" difficulty Player/Tower stats were altered to make the game more balanced . A new item tier "Mythical" was added for Nightmare, presumably to incentivize playing it. Which sounds good until you find out Mythical items had massively inflated stats, trivialising past content. Though to be fair, getting said gear incredibly difficult. Drop rates on Mythical were very low on all but the hardest maps. Seeing how those maps were balanced around you having Mythical gear, pretty much the only way to get the gear was to join someone who was hardcore and farmed early maps for it or was also carried.
Did I forget to mention they added new enemies for Nightmare? The Spider was the first one they added. Having a new set of (invisible) spawn locations, chosen to backdoor common defense locations, they would web towers drastically reducing fire rate and increasing the damage they would take. Thankfully spiders would prioritize players, webbing them and reducing movement speed, attack rate as well as preventing the use of abilities. Djinn were the second ones added, flying enemies that have the ability to "instantly" destroy defenses with a cast time based on what tier the defense was. Also possesing the ability to buff enemy units, turning them gold and making them significantly stronger. Sharken were the third, having the ability to charge through defenses pushing them out of the way. Probably the least obnoxious of the new enemies. Lastly the Goblin Copter, flying enemies that would spawn from Wyvern spawn locations. They would spawn carrying an Ogre and proceed to fly somewhere on the map and drop them off. If you made the mistake of not killing it before then, it would proceed to fire player seeking missiles, anti-tower flares and rockets at players/defenses. They also made Ogres much more common on Nightmare, in case all the previous wasn't enough.
Trendy, confident in their new found balance, proceeded to add new maps with this in mind. Basically having the difficulty options be varying differences of Nightmare difficulty, new enemies included. Most of the maps they added were well designed (some not so much). Unfortunately to play these maps you have to own them (shocker). To be fair, Trendy had this odd business model of having (most) maps be free the first two weeks after their release. Now a days you have to buy them and there are A LOT of them.
They also added some new classes, Barbarian for pure melee DPS, Series EV able to wield two ranged weapons and use an adjustable wall and a buff beam, Summoner for pure builders with movable towers and Jester for pure ranged DPS and minor trolling. Though the first classes they added were gender swapped versions of the vanilla heroes, with slightly different abilities. All of these you had to pay for as well, though I'd say they're all worth it (excluding the gender swaps).
Overall, Trendy hit gold with this game and did a pretty good job at keeping it alive. Personally I don't like what Nightmare did to the game but I think they had a lot of good ideas. Dungeon Defenders is definitely a game worth playing, if you haven't for some reason. Just make sure you get some friends to play it with and don't expect to play all the maps unless you're REALLY into it. DLC strongly recommended.
Also Trendy seems to have granted a community team the ability to officially update the game, so maybe we'll see some cool stuff out of that.
I played Dungeon Defenders on the Xbox 360 a few years ago and it was easily one of my favorite games that I've ever played. The PC version is just as good. Between the DLC characters and maps and still functional online mode, it's become a favorite of mine once again.
So i started a survival, and only now realised I forgot to turn on mix mode.
I am looking for Trans gear and wave 13 dry so far, but that's to be expected considering they only come out at wave 17 on King's Game (from my experience)
I was wondering how ...
I feel like I'm missing something huge here, making me seem partly ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.
I see icons for stats which I can't seem to find out what they do or are (Man being hit by a laser for one) and when I finally do, I don't know how much the stat changes per poi...
Thinking about buying this game again do many people still play?
I read a thread which asked the same question but no one provided proof as too how many people play the game online. I used to have this game on my PS3 but the servers got shut down a long time ago sadly and I wondered if it was worth it to come back to t...
