Is this ability not supposed to affect mind control?
Used it on a siren but it still mind controlled my guys, just wondering if this is intended or not. I would assume mind control is a Will point ability but I haven’t tried observing whether it actually drains WP from the siren.
nope. this thing is utterly broken. the description word for word says:
“Disrupt target for 1 turn, causing it to become DISORIENTED and unable to use any willpoint abilities.”
it neither causes disorientation, nor does it stop the enemy from using willpoint abilities.
It. is. broken. just like sooooooo many other things in this game. devs really need to spend less time on new stuff, and much much more on ironing out all the bugs still remaining if they want to have ANY chance of grabbing any significant long term interest in this game.
agreed. like so many devs these days, there is little to no money spent on testing. hell, when I was in game development in the 1990s, we had multiple in house playtesters working full time to test every single piece of code. I just do not understand how modern coders think themselves immune to frequent bugs so never spend any money on testers. it’s backwards. like saving a penny, but costs them a dollar.
We do have an in-house QA team. Generally, games are more complex than then were 30 years ago. With more sandbox style games, like Phoenix Point, there are a huge number of different mechanics and systems and sometimes bugs do slip through. We’re fixing them as they’re found/reported.
