Sword and Bored: Nerfs

We addressed something that is an important part of continuity in the Sword and Bored universe in this week’s comic strip: When the player is not at the keyboard, the character instantly falls asleep. We might use this little trope in a future comic. I can just imagine a dungeon where the whole raid is kicked offline at once, but the boss sees them as asleep — then has a tasty meal.

At any rate, enjoy today’s comic…

Its that new guy.
He’s actually working for that other company with that other MMO, and he’s here to sabotage this MMO so the players leave and come to their MMO instead.

Oleg Chebeneev Likewise, please consider this your one comment per year. That would also be optimal.

Speaking about nerfs, plz nerf Sword & Bored frequency. One issue per year would be optimal

See this is what happens when you give in to sleep as an mmo player.
“We wil never rest ’cause’ sleep is for the weak and we will never rest, till we’re all effing dead”
“I refuse! I refuse! I refuse to close my eyes!”

Should of picked mage class. Teleport the goblin at the bridge, then he gets to find how how to make time fly.

Patch notes.  Made goblin heads 1000* tougher.
Darn it, who typo’d the multiplication instead of % on goblin heads?

Great job on illustrating the trials and tribulations of the MMO player thus far!  

This would have been a good time for a “bubble hearth”…

Oh, whoops, nerfed.

That is what happens when developers balance PvE around PvP.

How else will you know what to complain about on the forums while you wait for the patch to download and install ? ;)

I think it would be really funny if the mobs refused to fight, then explained that they read the notes for an upcoming patch and were waiting for the nerfs to hit.

See DAoC patch 1.62 “The light tank explained” … worst patch ever.
