I came back to play after a month plus off. Love all the new items and equipment. The mining quarry and pump jack are pretty slick.
What did they do to the torch?
There is no way a free item that every new spawn gets should be able to 1) do so much damage in a melee fight or 2) do so much damage to wood structures. It is truly ridiculous. They were saying they nerfed the spear because so many people were having fights with it instead of the other weapons, but between the torch damage and the spear nerf, the torch is a better option. Plus now folks can farm torches from new spawns, or suicide themselves, and end up taking out your door, which you can’t even repair because of the damage delay to repair. Just got the door up, fired up a furnace to make some metal to upgrade the doors, and I was zerged by 3 nakeds carrying an inventory full of torches.
It didn’t help that I was stuck between a box and the wall, which prevents you from performing any quick bar action.
Please, nerf the torch. A fresh spawn item shouldn’t be so powerful.
