I could swear that either last night or this morning, I got a popup for another Game Changers video. The previous one (Bossk confirmed?) I watched and enjoyed. This one, I could swear said something about mod management. I didn't have time to watch it, so I clicked the video button, then added it to my bookmarks. However, I obviously didn't do it right, because it's not there.

So.... did anyone get a good link to this video? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

  • I love how they acted like, omg players did stuff we did not expect and that’s not how we intended mods to be. It’s not anyone’s first rodeo with mods. Every game, pretty much ever, placed some way to enhance gear or stats into it and players who are a lot smarter than me with math reduced everything to an equation to get the most bang.

    Speed is out of control in this game. Even the devs use speed to halt players progress in every form of combat from fleet challenge to raids and TB to mythics. Put a cap on speed or give it diminishing returns above 220 and problem solved. Every player knows if a mod has no speed secondary to not develop it, just sell. It does not take rocket science to see a toon with +30 speed secondary in every mod wins. Slow teams loose.

    Seconded. It's rarely convenient for me to watch videos on my phone, but reading text is much more accessible (and miles quicker)

    But I guess people don't get famous by writing text these days

    I think being a woman downshort in the office is making this come out a little less organized than it has been with the Character info release, which usually included all the videos all together in one place.

    Edited for clarity.

    I wish that all the game changers would have the same Q&A so I only need to watch one from my favourite GC, rather than watch them all and wonder if I missed out on any good info.

    Totally agree with you. I rarely, if ever, watch the videos but I read all developer posts.

    Wait. What? Being a woman is doing what, exactly?

    This statement is in reference to Kozi not being in the office as referenced here.

    Hoping this might be a misinterpretation but this response seems somewhat....misogynistic to say the least

    Please see my above comments for clarification, but kozi is a woman and is not longer in the office to organize the output of information.....not sure how that shows prejudice in any way.

    Turns of phrase and idioms make the English language so much fun. Take for instance the phrase "we're a man down" referring to being short staffed. Change that to "we're a woman down" and it means the same thing. Use it with correct grammer and the verb "being" and it makes it confusing as all get out to figure out where the phrase begins and where it ends. Try Kyno's sentence with this focus and see if it makes more sense..."I think, being a woman down in the office, is making..."

    Ahhhh! Your original post confused me as well. I was reading it as "A women down [present/on-hand] in the office" vs "A women down [short] in the office".
    #CloneHelmets4Life...VICTORY!!!! :smiley: "I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere." The more you tighten your grip, CG/EA, the more whales will slip through your fingers (and go F2P or quit).
  • I'm not sure that they couldn't have seen that people would be moving mods around as often as they are.

    I think the reason mod management is such a large part of a QOL update request, is the fact that because the mods you get from "playing" the mod battles, are so RNG dependant on what is received. I know that more than 90% of my winnings from mod battles are sold back for credits.

    That's why we want/need to have sets in the first place.

    Huh?

    Mod management is needed because we have so many toons required in so many parts of the game now.

  • I think they're overcomplicating what needs to be done. Mod management, in my mind, is two things:
    1) Having filters like those that exist on swgoh.gg. While swgoh.gg is great, it doesn't show mods that are unassigned, so I don't know if I've got a speed secondary going unused.
    2) Being able to save mod sets the same way we can save squads for easy assignment. Also, a "remove all" button for the toon.

    I know this is a fair bit of work to implement, but it's not a dramatic overhaul either. Would be nice if they could do this as a stopgap solution until they figure out what they really want mods to be.

    Obvious workaround for the first point is to assign all your mods so they show up on third-party sites.

  • @Kyno I thought you were saying that being a woman down in the office, meaning, you are a woman in the office... so I was confused by what you meant.

    Reading it in context of being without Kozi in the office; it changes the whole conversation.

    Yes, I apologize for any confusion.
