Oh... I guess me.
No one is going to like additional repair costs. I'm not sure how any feedback would be "Great, I really love paying more for repair costs." however, we have seen enough feedback and data to show that the ratio is pretty good as long as people aren't throwing their character's corpses against enemies. Death has meant nothing for a very long time now. It's going to take some getting used to and just understanding that death is no longer something that just happens, it should be something you're really fighting to avoid, and potentially being smarter about tackling content you can actually tackle.
That said, we think the normal wear and tear is maybe too high. Just fighting is probably too expensive, and we're looking at potential adjustments there.
Do you play d3 ? I have actually stopped fighting any elite with a challenging skill combo while progressing my story, because its simply not worth the 4-5 deaths i might incur. THE MOBS HEALTH RESETS WHEN YOU DIE, your response is complete bull POOP imo.
You all are doing a really bang up job on this game and just continue to adopt the attitude of mother knows best. We pay for your games, we are the reason each of you have a job but it seems like there is no attention what so ever paid to the opinion of the gamers.
You are truly just shameful as developers of this game.
