    Both ambuscades this month are trashy and uninspired

    Volume 1 and Volume 2 both spam dispels

    and spam debuffs

    and have unreasonably high Damage Taken - at the start

    This is not fun or interesting or exciting or whatever you think it's supposed to be. (not to be confused with "hard" or "difficult" just crappy and lazy)

    I’m not a big fan of them this month either. The mantis fight takes too long, even on easy.

    Seems pretty amnesia, dispel, stun, knock-back and almost all the good stuff heavy this time around fer sure.

    Looks like intense is less fuss, though on easy already it gets about 3 times slower due to all that good stuff.

    (Guess one could just alternate them giants and not get the good stuff, and possibly time out too.)

    Quick solo samurai with alter egos on low levels win times:

    Regular - Normal: 24:34
    Regular - Very Difficult: 19:38 (Was a little slow to start, maybe at 28:something.)

    Intense - Very Easy: 26:44
    Intense - Easy: 14:30

    Regular certainly feels a bit too fussy this time around compared to the usual.

    (Can we have an "immune to amnesia" food or something? No? Okay...)

    am I reading that right? you beat higher difficulties faster than lower ones?

    Usually when you want to describe the time spent on something you use the time elapsed, not the time remaining, but given that your numbers are smaller for the harder battles, I'm assuming that you listed time remaining instead of time elapsed.

    Yeah, time remaining. Was a little too lazy about it but figured it could give a lazy general image of thing.

    Maybe.

    Yeah, players treat ambuscade as transactional. A low to no effort for high reward event. One month that takes ~7-15+ minutes instead of the 2-5 minutes of the last few months and it's some great travesty that needs to be ended.

    When v1 is going to be janky (velkk, sahagin, ironclads, etc) v2 is supposed to be easy

    You screwed up and made V1 and V2 identical in concept. Don't do that. V2 is supposed to be "simple". Mass dispel and DT mechanics should never be considered, at all in v2.
