The death of hypermax and Reication
The Dragon Invasion hero page (previously known as hypermax) has been retired and will no longer be maintained by us.
When the page was first created the idea was to help out players who were having a bit of a tough time with Dragon Invasion, show them some hero builds that’d do pretty well in there whilst also adding the disclaimer that they may not always work too well in general questing.
Yeah that disclaimer didn’t really work out. We’ve noticed a growing trend of players who are taking the DI heroes page as being the “this is the best possible setup for my hero” and then finding themselves sometimes struggling in places like Terror Tower as it turns out they had chosen the ones that really didn’t translate well.
We could speculate as to the why it was being misused – maybe it’s because it was a one stop “this gear and these skills for this class”, or maybe we really didn’t explain well enough why you shouldn’t always use them, or perhaps something else entirely. Either way we feel maintaining that as a resource was doing more harm than good.
I (Reiga) will be taking a vacation away from both STC and ST in general due to personal reasons. Nerilea and ArchonMal will still be here to drown you in data/deliver sarcastic quips as needed, but my health amongst other things demands that I step away for a while.
The ST-Central website and Discord will remain available, and Nerilea has access to the same admin functions that I typically am responsible for, so there’s no risk of a repeat of what happened when Laterus went walkies for a while.
And finally, if you have a complaint about us taking down the Hypermax page, please direct it to R2DaeToo.
