When are barrels being fixed??

The offscreen invis barrels are still the most imbalanced thing in this game. Tired of not being able to play with my group past 120 because of them. Can you either fix them or replace them with something equally powerful (but not retardedly broken)?


Since many of you seem inept and illiterate, I've changed the title from "nerfed" to "fixed".

I am sorry that the 20+ years old engine is an inconvenience for you. Don't be a baby. The damage was already nerf'd to infinity so it doesn't one shot most mid-game characters.

Just sacrifice some damage to reach 10k+hp and you're good. Also, you are not supposed to have an easy time at Dunc as a fresh 120

Again not addressing a bug that makes multiplayer Duncraig practically impossible (inb4 someone doesn't know what the word "practically" means).

Damage on the barrels has already been nerfed after being a 1hko for a very long time, I wouldn't expect it to get nerfed again. It's unfriendly for MP and always has been that way and no amount of forum threads is going to make them suddenly change it.

There will be no scenario in which they nerf the barrel throw distance and someone doesnt get hit by an invisible barrel if you don't stick together. Even if they make the throw distance 5 yards, if you skulk around like headless chickens going offscreen, you will still die off invisible barrels. I've been farming duncraing in groups for years including when barrels were 1hko. If you stick together and don't go out of the screen, you will not die of invisible barrels. Simple as.

It really is hella annoying. Develop a rhythm where you evade potential barrels before they go off.

Graphically there is a way to make them more distinguishable from the environment, but that again wont prevent them from being invisible when you go offscreen. I think this goes for every single "delayed" spell in the game.
