    This release brings nothing too interesting, but bug fixes and price reductions are always good... Now, if you could only drop the price of the shadow minion that would be great... ;)
    All the best.

    I'm glad about the change to the andermagic boss monsters... They were the only thing that could get me killed me in Fatal, and now I'll be invincible while I farm.

    From a SW point of view, those don't give me a lot of trouble, yet I'm also glad by the change, they can be quite problematic. The ones kicking my butt every now and then are the fire ones, specially rabid-speed-fire types, hope it gets better with the radius marker, since the range from where I can safely and effectively shoot them has pretty much no margin for error, one step closer, I eat the fire, one step further and I don't reach them with FS.


    Now, looking at the progress bar from the invasion event, I don't know if to laugh or cry at the random 250 blue essences and the 150 red essences thrown into the highlighted rewards, I think a lot of us would appreciatte that you revisit your concept of a decent reward, it's an event, it's supposed to let you get stuff out of the ordinary, pets, emotes, costumes, decent stacks of stuff that you woul'd normally get by units during normal gameplay, but 250 blue essences?, 150 red essences?, come on guys...

    The chat tweak is actually nice, it was a bit annoying to keep switching it around when you're moving through maps with a group. The "critical file" trouble has affected me very few times, yet it's good to know it's gone as well. The rest of the bug fixes seem "meh" to me. Same "meh" to the adjustments on the cosmetic items' pricing, I'd rather see old ones available as rewards from events again instead of 150 red essences ;).

    I'm just happy that the chat will stay in the group/guilde position when changing maps. You have no idea how annoying it is.

    Does this update increase the drop rate of realm fragments? This is a promise that keeps repeating but is not yet realized.

    Bug fixes are always welcome,but i still encounter the loading bug from time to time recently and Q pressing causes screen froze or crash.
    BTW that 10% discount doesn't really count "drastically"

    The game is freezing for 20-30 seconds when you open the Quest Tab.

    It already does on live servers, but only 10-15 seconds for me

    Invasion event is cool... but I predict boredom since they mostly kept stuff... not that it's bad, but hopefully they manage to liven it up a tad this time. Also, the ring seems kinda meh. And two towns now? At once, or one after another? Huh? Guessing it's Jarlshofn first, and Hognis the next, whenever that may be?

    No more Premium for newbies... yes, totally makes sense. Why'd they do that?

    Costume and emotes sales - "massive" 10 - 20% cuts in their opinion (same as their daily - not-so-daily-anymore - sales are 25% off and they claim "rock-bottom prices" xD), but still nice, I guess (though in the end spending that much Ander on those isn't quite smart, but eh...).

    Fixes and random mob enchant polishes, nothing to sneeze at. Good.

    Downtime again for a release that is not much (again), but supposedly only due the new event implementation (though I still don't get how some events require downtime while others don't).
    Yep, been experiencing the slight freeze upon pressing "Q" as well the past few days. Nothing too big, but we'd hate it if it grew into another big problem...

    Also, @ the "drastically" part... as said beofre... yeah, I got used to their silly market-y interpretation of word - daily (not-so-daily-anymore) 25% sales have text like they bring stuff to rock-bottom prices and are extraordinary clearance sales xD. Pfft xD.

    But you are talking about the old R ... i am talking about the upcoming R168.
    When you open the quest tab the game looks like a screenshot for 20-30 seconds ... if you are having issues with it now ... wait for R168.
    Even though ... the issue is not that big like it used to be ... but anyway it is still existing and we are trying to help the devs fixing it.

    Oh, great... like we haven't had enough trouble before.
    Now we get another baby-problem reminiscent of the other... yeah, people love to wait. GG...

    Thank god you will fix that hp bug at hp.Also like that you've decided to lower the prices for costumes and emotes.Lowering them by 10-20% is great for those who love to collect those.As for rewards at the next invasion event, well saying that those are lame would be an understatement lol. 1 legendary item, 5 keys, 250 blue, 150 red...thats laughable.Its an event, the rewards should be at least decent.Even a mob from lvl 1 parallel worlds or lortac continent gives more blue essence than the amount we get at this event lol.

    Also grats on fixing those minibosses.They were a pain to kill with warriors, just like those who spawn shields.The andermagic minibosses did not pose a threat to ranged classes like the ones with speed and fire buffs.Hopefully these types will be changed in the future aswell.

    so sad that the free 3 days premium membership is being removed from the game,i personally loved it and would like to pay in future for it in future,but if players were going to be given a chance to play as a premium member for sometime and feel what its like ,then many players like me would think of buying premium membership in future ALSO!thanks

    Hello BP? Dev? Mod? Anyone cares?
    Seriously, for the love of god, are these 'feedback' thread still relevant??? Please.

    r168 released this evening, MONDAY, 04/07/2016 and those FEEDBACK I quoted above, a EDIT useful, important, and urgent FEEDBACK, for your own good, posted FOUR DAYS AGO. Seriously?? Can't you fix that BEFORE you release it??? Why did you make this 'FEEDBACK/SUGGESTION' anyway? Formality? Did you even read this thread?

    I'm a new player along with my other friends, about five or six months into this game. We really like this game, we hope you really do listen to our voices. We already faced two 'simple' but significant bugs; loading screen bug (which isn't fixed perfectly) and now, this. I haven't reach lv 50 yet, I still have bunch of quests. I need to access quest tab frequently, of course. What do you say? Should I ignore this freezing screen and let it crashes?

    I hope my lack of grammar didn't bother you to get what I mean from this 'feedback'. Thanks.

    This release makes DSO consuming more CPU power than before. The CPU fan of my PC whines more loudly.

    So it's live now... and the R164 BSOD bug is still there with a slight improvement, so a disable/enable option for the compendium is still necessary.
    Also why doesn't it downloads in bundles anymore? Now you have to wait for every un-downloaded thing to download when you encounter it... meshes, anims, textures, etc... for every single thing like equipments, skills, grass, farts... and it freezes. Go back to that pre-loading/downloading with the client with bundles.
    Your game, since R164, is a bandwidth-eating monster.
