    It's not really what I'd call difficult, but that's because my temperament allows me to pick up complex things over a slow burn whereas I'm useless executing things at speed because I don't think...

    To be honest I agree. Or at least, it was designed for people who wanted something hard and intense at any rate. I think the updates since demonstrate recognition that it was way too grindy but I...

    I completed it in 50 before the Radiant mode existed, and after playing on Radiant for a bit its apparent that there is a lot of time saving devices. So I guess it's possible it would only shave off...

    Ended up playing as the Von Carsteins. Think they're pretty broken but I adore their mechanics with the focus on beasts and vampire heroes. I found an arcane artifact that makes it impossible to...

    Played the Siltbreaker mode in Dota 2, it's shit. I could go into more details but I mean it's just rubbish. Like when Half Life becomes a platformer, but this time it's the entire game.

    Went for Hard because it was the middle. I assumed it was intended as the new normal. I used to play on Hard or the one above in EL, depending on which faction I chose. Hard for someone..uh, hard,...

    I feel like all the great things that were inherent in EL, but required certain chance or circumstances to really manifest themselves, are much more intrinsic and "bult in" in ES2.
