How far do you have to get to be able to unlock raids?

 

5th floor I believe. Raid's aren't the most exciting part though - little more than a way to face CPU-controlled characters raised by other players, see if you can beat them and loot some resources.

 

The main game though :wub:

 

Lately I'm trying to be as stealthy as possible: sneaking up on enemies, grabbing them from behind for a suplex and stomping to death when they're down!

I want to upgrade my freezer and bank account and I believe you need to have raids open to do that. Or I wouldn`t bother. The entire mechanic sounds as bad as when they put it in MGS.

True. You don't actually have to do raids, mind.

I threw a boomshroom at you earlier Joe. You blowed up real good. You were also on fire a bit so I stamped on you to put it out; I'm kind like that :D

 

Floor 9 now. Will try and meet the boss today although I'm still missing the fifth stamp.

Heh, I love coming across Haters of people in my friends list :D Killed @The Disco a couple of times, once by Rage-firing my firework gun as he came rushing towards me.

 

I somehow skipped the main Floor 9 on my way to 10F. Stamps are completely optional I think, but I'm determined to go back and collect them at some point.

 

Think I'll try that tomorrow with a Collector character, to harvest some consumables for the 10F boss fight on the way.

You have to be open to getting raided though. And I think the raids give you far more of the currency for the upgrades don`t they?

 

Yeah, it's the quickest way to gather SPLithium for item upgrades. Got plenty of it at the moment though.

I doubt I was hard to kill.  I gave up on the game about three rooms in the first level after the restart. 

 

I didn't like it much at all.  Typical, old fashioned, rigid fight mechanics with enemies that seemed to have boundless invincibility frames when they decide to start an attack animation.

Has anyone had issues with this game crashing?

 

The first couple of times I tried to play it, it just froze at the initial loading screen (with the painting of the tower of barbs). I had to switch my PS4 off at the mains on one of these occasions and rebuild the database. Stubbornly, I tried starting the game again, and this time it worked and played fine.

 

But trying tonight, it crashed again. I might just reinstall it, but curious to know if anyone else has had problems with the game. I'm worried it might be an issue with my new Pro.

This is so good. It's been so long since my last Suda51 trip that I'd forgotten quite how delicious the taste is.

 

I've got my first character up to level 25 and that seems to be the highest I can go, but I've only ever got up to floor 6 (I think) so that can't be the cap, can it? Also I went back to the first floor after killing Coen and there was a new entrance leading to 'Wanoki' that seemed to take me up the tower a completely different route - does anyone know the easiest route for reaching lifts past level 3 to get back to the waiting room?

Coen is the first 'half boss'. You'll get another one at 6F - Jin Die. After you've cleared that, you gain access to more specialised fighter roles that favour particular stats (or bag space in the case of the collector). To role one of these, you'll either have to have a spare slot in the freezer or you'll have to delete one of your older fighters to make room for the new one. After you clear the first proper boss on the tenth floor, you'll get access to two star fighters which can use two decals and have even more specialised roles.

 

You can buy more freezer space, along with bank space and kill coin capacity via the TDM options (after you've run it once) for SP Lithium. 

 

I did a hurricanrana on a mob earlier too! First time I've ever done one. I was creeping along and the mob was below me and I got the prompt to do it. I thought I was going to drop kick or something but I jumped onto its head, span around its shoulders a few times and flipped it onto the floor, splating it :D

Would anyone who has this installed be able to let me know if their save file is visible on their console?

 

I want to back up my save before reinstalling the game, but I can't find anything for it when I go to saved data management in the PS4 settings. I can find save data for every other game I've played on this console, but not Let it Die. I don't know if it's normal to not have a save file stored locally for online games or if it's another sign that it hasn't installed properly on my console.

 

The game still keeps freezing when I try to start it.

I was enjoying this until I got to the third floor and met a level 29 Hater that I could barely damage and thus he murdered me without any real problem. Seems to me this will happen a lot and they will expect you to use your gems for the Insurance?

Haters can be a bitch, as they're based on actual player data. Not to mention how a lvl 29 character has serious stats. They can be beaten, mind. And it doesn't happen a lot.

 

As for using Death Metal gems for insurance: I did this quite a lot in the beginning, but you really don't have to. As the game title says: let it die! Then either 'force retreat' you character at the freezer for some money (and keep the items it was holding!), or use another character to retrace your step and kill your hater-fied character (which will return it to the freezer, but sans items) :)

I don't know about you Joe (I assume you're NL registered) but I've been getting raided with alarming frequency. Feels good to go on revenge missions and fuck someone else's shit up.

 

Contrary to Mr McSpeed, I happen across high level haters all the time. At least once on every floor will be a 25+ hater. They're not too hard to dispatch, especially if you have a good supply of boomshrooms or shockshrooms but failing that there is no shame in running away if you feel outmatched. I've been one shotted by some level 50 ones recently and despite being a pain in the arse, and bloody expensive (17000 KC to get them back :() it's not the end of the world if it happens.

But how am I supposed to progress if theres a higher level Hater blocking my way and that kills me each time I meet him?

I ran into a level 30 hater when playing the other night and managed to kill her with a poison shroom. I didn't fancy facing her head-on.

 

Having said that, I've found most enemies, even the haters (lower level ones at least), can easily be stun locked as long as you get the first hit in. When I was playing the other night I was using fists and an iron. I could do a standard 3 hit combo with the fists then attack with the iron, and just repeat that ad infinitum. None of the enemies seemed to break out of this combo.

This is pretty intimidating and certainly goes a bit deeper then expected. I've just cleared the first floor and levelled up my second dude a little bit but wonderring what the best course of action is now. Do I continue with my levelled guy or do i take out the lv1 guy in my freezer and grind him a bit before moving up another floor? Don't mind a little grind until i get more comfortable with the controls. I keep stepping on frogs when i want save them for lunch, accidentally eat them when i try to throw them and weapon switching has.... room for improvement lol.

I wouldn't worry too much about level grinding. Fighters are more or less disposable in this game, and levels come easily. I did a run with a new character a few nights ago, covering only about 5 floors, and had enough experience at the end to get them from level 1 to level 25 (their max). The one thing the game distributes generously is experience points.

 

Probably easier to just focus on one fighter to begin with, as you work your way up to floor 5 or so. You'll soon open up quests, which will give you an excuse to replay lower level floors and perhaps level up new fighters at the same time.

 

Really quite enjoying the game so far. It's rough in many areas but there's something oddly compelling about it. I do wish there was more variety in the levels, however, and more random events of the kind that make other (admittedly very different) roguelikes like Spelunky, BoI or Shiren so exciting. Doing runs through the same floors in Let it Die quickly becomes predictable. Yet I still keep playing. Must have spent about 5 hours on Thurs night. I may well burn out or get bored before I reach the top, but for the time being it's distracting me from every other game I've been playing.

 

Do we know yet how many floors there are?

It's not so much the aesthetics and more the lack of variation in the level structure. Each floor consists of the exact same rooms rearranged. That can be helpful, in that it allows you to learn the levels to the point that you can safely predict exactly where an enemy/trap will be, but I find roguelike games work better with a greater element of unpredictability. There's less of that here.

 

I'm still enjoying the game in spite of my complaints. The combat's good and improving your base and crafting better gear is as addictive here as in any game of this sort that I've played.

I keep getting raided! At least three or four times every time I turn my back. Loving the game though and I've just defeated the first Don. Got my collector up to level 42 and I've put my previous two characters in defense, for all the fat lot of good they're doing. I thought leaving the sewers would make for a pleasant change but if anything now the levels are even more creepy and oppressive.

 

Can't believe this is a FTP. :huh: It's probably the finest example of the 'walking around with a traffic cone on your head and suplexing Joffo' genre that we've yet seen.

I think how often you get raided must be heavily influenced by the country/state you choose. I don't know how much the rivalry system influences things, but Ireland is very quiet for me. I've only been raided once in the past week.

 

It's a bit disappointing really. I've had my spare fighters on defense duty all week and they're not getting much use.

The UK had a mass scrap with California a few days ago so all my raiders were from there. When you reach fight status as we did, you raid once and then go on a massive list of raids until you die, with rewards getting better the further you get. 

I think the UK is due one with Germany as soon as the red bars meet.

We lost the war with Germany. Thanks for the support boys. <_<

 

Japan's getting a physical release of this in the new year, complete with exclusive decals and items. Also the first 'Let It Fes' is happening at Zepp Tokyo in two days time, with live music from some of the many bands involved and Akira Yamaoka in attendance! Who wants to start a GoFundMe for funding me? :lol:

But seriously, is there any strategy for Jin Die apart from wailing on her and hoping for the best? I can't figure her pattern out.

It's not much of a strategy, but I found that hiding behind the pillars and just waiting for her to teleport near me got me through the battle. She'll often teleport directly behind you and provided you're quick, you can attack her before she has the chance to knock you down. A 3 hit combo will normally prompt her to teleport away before she attacks.

 

On my second fight with her I tried using ranged weapons, but I actually got hit more this way, and my ranged weapons did bugger all damage. Melee worked better.

Progressing ever so slowly i've just unlocked TDM and raided my first base. Ended a bit quickly after i dragged an enemy on board the train which to my surprise ended the raid but whatever. I'm now allowed to join a faction (nation) and chose to join the 200 strong dutch squad. Slightly worried to see that i am the highest level player (checked a handful of profiles) even though i'm basically still stuck on the third floor. What are the pros and cons of joining a large faction vs. joining a small one?
