Please revert the changes to Elf spear/shield, Mace/shield and Elf 1h Sword. The changes take away the identity from the two shield weapons and just removes an attack pattern option from the Elf 1h sword. I specifically stayed away from the mod because of this and now it is released as a balance patch for live.

Chad devs actually did it lmao, did a beta, listened and then applied it.
I am happy that this has come out, but please fix the rest of the game before it's abandoned for Darktide. I am always disconnecting from the Host when I join, despite changing Network settings in-game (btw I'm on a 200download 20upload speed wired ethernet connection so that can't be it, it's the game's matchmaking or P2P connection problems since we never got the dedicated servers, which I understand they cost money but if the game will always be P2P then the bugs need to be squared away). I have to Host to avoid disconnecting but only can with a Sanctioned Mod, also if your game disconnects or crashes you should have the option to immediately reconnect to your Squad, just like in Deep Rock Galactic which does it right (and they're also an indie company so no excuses).

Also please fix the game crashing, my game has crashed probably 100 times since I've built my new PC back in Oct 2018. It may have something to do with my DDR4 Ram speed being set to 3200mhz for my Ryzen 7 2700x, but no other game I own crashes like V2 does. If I do anything in the Menu in the Keep, the game crashes. If I set the graphics too high, the game crashes. Sometimes just not doing anything at all, the game crashes. I have typed in many angry things in that blank box and hit the Close (I'm assuming which then sends the bug to you guys.. I pray. Otherwise they've all been going nowhere which I would guess is more likely since it still hasn't been fixed after over a year) but you can imagine my frustration when I get 10-15 minutes into a match, my game crashes, and I can't rejoin the Squad like I could in a 4 man coop game like Deep Rock Galactic does. That's why that game and their devs are so beloved, because of the QoL and bug fix improvement patches and the devs actually listening to their community, instead of pretending to listen to the community and modders, then for some reason backpeddling and nerfing the popular weapons. which were only popular because they were the only viable weapons to begin with. Now we have the unpopular weapons becoming Viable, the popular weapons getting nerfed, and then eventually the now popular weapons will become nerfed because too many people use those, lol. I'm just glad that there were SOME balance changes made, we really needed it. Though tbh I feel like Dual Daggers, Billhook, etc etc really didn't need any changes at all. The game's already hard enough on Cataclysm, don't need anymore help making it harder, but that's just my opinion.

Anyway, when you collect Art or Finish a Challenge in this game it should save and complete right there, so if your game crashes or you disconnect from the Host (like mine does constantly) it doesn't cancel and disappear into the wind. So many times I've finished a challenge and then 5 minutes later my game crashed in the match, or I've disconnected, and it's gone and never counted. That is just bad game design and should have been fixed ages ago. Finding 3 art pieces in a match that takes 20-25 minutes then none of it counting because you wiped at the finale is just annoying and bad, this should have been changed when that was first introduced, but when you disconnect from a match or your game crashes that's even worse! All the time if I'm not Quick Play host I get the "disconnecting from host" message or w/e, some people it never happens and that is rare. Most of the time it will happen once or twice and then I will randomly disconnect and cannot reconnect, which is like 10-20 minutes of my time wasted for no XP and a mission restart with Bots. It always says it's trying to reconnect but never does. Please play some Deep Rock Galactic, Alt+F4 your game to disconnect, then restart the game and you will see you immediately get a message that asks if you want to reconnect to your Squad, and it does so. For a game that now takes up 93gb's of space on my hard drive, it should be better.

So many issues I have with this game and will continue to "whine and complain" about them until they are fixed, since we won't have much time left before Darktide is the main focus of Fatshark and us V2 players who love the Warhammer Fantasy lore (above 40k) are left in the dust.

Please continue to work on this game and fix the bugs that have been around for ages. Why does my game crash constantly? None of my other games crash, EVER. I have turned off all mods, I have verified game cache, I have spent hours and hours troubleshooting the problem and have never found a fix.. I have tried many many things except turning my RAM speed down, and I'm not going to go restart my PC and go into the Bios to set them to default and redo everything just to play one game in my Steam library of 950 games. The only semi-fix I've found is turning my graphics down as low as they can go and then the game will still crash just not as often. I almost have to play with friends on Steam almost exclusively so if I do disconnect from them when they're hosting or my game crashes I can just rejoin the match quickly through Steam Friends, but that is not how this game should be.

Out of all those games though I continue to play Vermintide 2 for 500-600 hours still because I love it and there is nothing like it.

I applaud you developers for finally bringing us something like this beta balance patch, but keep at it. This game still needs so much work. I understand you're not making any new money with this game (hence the merch and cosmetic hat releases and new DLC coming soon) but this game still feels unfinished after a couple years. So many QoL improvements could be made that just haven't.

Love you guys, keep up the good work. Please fix whatever these issues with the game might be causing these problems. I know it's only this game when no other games out of my vast library I play crash randomly all the time. It's Vermintide 2 and it needs to be fixed.

PC Specs:
Ryzen 7 2700x
Asus Prime x470 Pro motherboard
GTX 1070 SC
16 GB's DDR4 3200mhz CAS Latency 14 RAM
600 Watt PSU

definitely above minimum specs so not sure what the deal is. I'm sure I should post this in the steam forums too but I feel like you guys don't listen unless it's plastered front and center.

Btw, none of these issues were present in Vermintide 1. I know because I went back recently and played that game again and it handled like a dream. No disconnection problems, no random crashes. The game worked fine. I don't know why V2 causes so many issues.


Edit:
I have to add one more thing.. Please bring back the Emperor's Chests for dailies, no one really cares for the 5 shillings per daily. Getting 15 shillings per day is nothing compared to the 50 per weekly quest completed.

I would much rather get more chests to open for potential Red items since they RARELY drop for me even from General's and Emperor's Vaults. I would happily play on Cataclysm but there's no point if you still need red items. It's annoying having to Disenchant 5 red items just to make one DLC weapon because none of the DLC weapons will appear as Red's in chests ever. So that just means needing A LOT of reds to disenchant, but not getting Emp Chests from Dailies means your chances of getting Red's is even lower these days, and even more so if your game crashes or you disconnect all the time like me before you can finish a mission.

I also wish we got some kind of cool border for playing in the Balance changes beta. I just played with someone who had the very cool serpent border he said was from Warhammer Fest 2018 only. I really hate borders like this that you can never get unless you were physically at one place at one time. Would be nice if I could get a code for this somewhere but I doubt they even exist out there. I think there is only one in-game Event border that I am missing but sadly I missed out on it because I was away from my PC during that one V2 event and now I can never get it again. I feel like there should be an Event at some point where you guys bring back all borders in the game people may have missed and can get them again. That would be a good send off for people still playing V2 when Darktide releases.

Please fix the two problems with Quickplay Weaves. You know which ones. I really hope for patch 3.2.

Please make Legend Emperor's chests have a guaranteed red item even if its a dupe. I had opened 100's of them and its getting old with having 999+ scrap from useless orange weapons.

The level 25 talent Exuberance for Ranger Veteran has a different description in game. In game the description reads, "Bardin takes 30% less damage from behind. Headshots grant this bonus to all damage for 30 seconds."

Based on the buff's icon in the bottom left corner when activated I believe the description as it reads in the patch notes is correct. "Bardin takes 30% less damage from the back. Headshots reduce damage taken by 30% for 5 seconds."

Big difference there.

Ironbreaker Bardin's talent Tunnel Breaker now says it reduces the cooldown of Gromril Armour to 10 seconds instead of 13 seconds before, this change is not stated in the patch notes.

Also Slatzpyre's talent Dual Action is also something different in the oatch notes and ingame

i am really hoping for a rework for unchained as the passive overcharge on damage exploads you and makes it nigh impossible to play it in legend/cata. maybe instead of instant death it pops your F and if its on CD then you go boom so you have a actual defence before you bite the bullet.

Yes, and while we're at it make hats guaranteed on commendation chests because it's getting old not having things handed out without effort. :steamfacepalm:
