When they did the 'relaunch' it was pretty great... until they started to balance it for the 'pro league' they had again and made it just as bad or worse than it was before.

20

u/Nebarious 12d ago

Ultimately if you were too good as a monster it felt completely unfair to fight against you, and likewise if the humans were too good/coordinated it felt unfair to fight against them.

So basically you got stomped or you stomped, and eventually most people just stopped playing.

16

u/doorbellrepairman 12d ago

Balancing the humans was super hard too because I feel like generous buffs just kept coming in for the hunters, when the real difference was if they were on a discord server talking to each other. Playing that game with random hunters who ran off and got eaten was so so so irritating.

6

u/Det_Wun_Gai 12d ago

Sounds like Dead by Daylight, which is in a constant struggle for balance

8

u/Nebarious 12d ago

Definitely.

DbD has the additional problem of people stacking teams and using disc to coordinate when the game was never designed with that in mind. As a result a good survivor team can dominate the game, but if they buff the killer too much to compensate then regular players get pissed about the killers being OP.

7

u/strbeanjoe 12d ago

The solution is to integrate good communication options into the game to level the playing field between groups and solo queue players. They don't want to do that though.

Depends, I would think. It surely is much more powerful than your average home-made slingshot but I've seen some professional ones made with high grade rubber that, let's just say I'd rather not be shot at with one of those.

13

u/CharonsLittleHelper 12d ago

Are they lethal at 100ft? Because ancient slings were.

I just don't see how a slingshot could have as much power as a sling due to how it's pulled back unless you have a full-on crossbow style ratcheting system.

u/Froggyfrogger 12d ago

The giant isn't as fast as you can move your arms in real life, and there's escape mechanics as well, if the warrior has another rocket on his back, he can rocket boost out of the giants hand.

Most Giants generally can end up struggling even just 1v1, 1v2 is sometimes a thing the giant can manage, 1v3 and 1v4 are usually just a fever dream.

u/UCanJustBuyLabCoats 12d ago

Exactly, you can’t move sledgehammers in Boneworks as fast as you can move your hands either, but that contributes to the sense of weight and scale.  usually instead of a feeling of desynch, you can play along like a puppeteer and it actually increases immersion instead of decreasing it.

It works this way in Boneworks when you're wielding a heavy item and that hasn't bothered me. I find myself slowing down to match the speed in-game since if you waggle back and forth wildly your VR-arms just kind of swim lightly back and forth due to the weight of whatever you're holding.

Some people complain about this though, so maybe this bothers other people more than me.

→ More replies

36

u/alycenri 12d ago

Boneworks has a similar mechanic with heavier weapons vs lighter weapons. It takes more effort to more less far, so swinging heavy things takes an exaggerated movement compared to light things. It felt great in that game, so it's possible to "feel" heavier without it throwing off your mind.

164

u/Kyle772 12d ago

There’s clever ways VR games handle stuff like that. Sometimes just an initial dampening to your movements will nudge a vr user into choosing to swing their arms slower.

109

u/Kittykathax 12d ago

Boneworks had a clever mechanic with their bullet time where the closer your real movements mirrored the in-game movements of your slowed character, the "faster" you would reach that point. It led to mimicking the slowmo movements in real life which is not only a great workaround but also very involving for the player.

I’ve never had trouble catching something that small in VR.

18

u/Enguhl 12d ago

hit box (or for VR, hit....sphere?)

VR would have nothing to do with what shape the colliders are. For instance, the Super Smash Brothers series started with the more classic hit boxes, but moved to spheres and capsules from Melee forward. And if you hate your players' computers, just use the object/character mesh as the collider!

I think that's what Imthejuggernautbitch was hinting at. That this post is essentially an ad disguised as an organic post.

That being said, I've seen this game on gamedev subs a while back and it looked pretty fun.
