    KorvinGump, you ruined PvZ

    Title says it all. I don't like the changes you've done to this game. Games are best when they are simple, you added too many bells and whistles and ruined the game.

    Yes, i like complexity, that's why GV is not popular. Probes vs Zealot 2 is casual, but becomes more complex, that's why people leaves.

    I LOVE GV...it sucks because it isnt that popular...I also love pvz2. The original pvz had WAY more problems than pvz2, and thats before the map broke due to bnet updates. I may not agree with a few things Korvin has done, but I do think he has GREATLY improved the game.

    I never played the original PvZ but I think PvZ2 is a solid game. Korvin has responded to suggestions and balanced gameplay to the point where I believe your skill dictates the outcome more than most arcade games out there. Most games have a model strategy to follow and this game gives you flexibility to try something new. Each game can use improvements (Like T10 giving more damage ) but gotta disagree with you Bigred.

    I think what the average player likes about PvZ is that they can go off and make their own little base, but while playing with many other players, it's something similiar to the mmorpg concept where players like to be around other players while playing a solo game. I don't think complexity puts new players off a game, aslong as the complexity is well hidden in the gameplay and basic important features are obvious, which they are IMO.

    If anything, Korvin made the game much more balanced. Around a month or go, probes won 95% of all games now its way more balanced with good zealots like around 50-50.

    If I recall, BigRed played PvZ1 pretty hardcore back in the day, along with me and Para. He was a good Zealot, but this was in the time where Zealot was so OP that you couldn't lose. Everyone would base solo, the feed was insane, everything was salvageable for full refund, no one even thought to Salv and Run.

    So my conclusion, BigRed is mad he can't win as zealot anymore because the game is more balanced.

    My suggestion to him, go grab a group of people you know and go back to PvZ1. It is still a map (though riddled with bugs and issues which KORVINGUMP fixed).

    Korvin spends his own time making a great map greater, and you criticize him. SMH.
