from 7/21 patch notes

Archetypes
 Automaton
•Automaton powers are no longer locked behind leveling up the automaton.
•You will still need to level a character to 40 to gain access to the automaton.
•Removed Awakened archetype section on the archetype list.

That's just funny..

They forgot to add:
•Flipped off person who came up with that brilliant AT And idea.

But it was implied!

When I read this the first time I thought they were saying they removed the AT from the game but I dunno what 'removed it from the archetype section on the archetype list' means. It sure sounded like they removed it from the game when I read it the first time but now I am wondering why they didn't just say that if that's what happened.

Anyway, I still got a laugh at the image of the whole Automaton idea getting punted. (Due to about everyone thought it completely sucked.)

Just due to I bothered to point this out to begin with, in the interest of completeness, The Automaton still exists. In the Ranged AT selection list.

It woulda been funnier to see the AT get punted along with the rest of this unpopular idea.

I don't want people's ideas to fail but it's good to see bad ones get their justice. The more spectacularly the better in the case of spectacularly bad ones...hehe.

Anyway! Carry on..

It'll be nice if they allow lock-box only powers to not require lock-boxes to be opened again to.  I read some of the upcoming "balance" changes though, the only good one I felt was the change to crippling/challenging strikes and actually making block powers revelevent in pvp.  But I am sure they'll cave and make the new block break advantage just remove blocking from pvp like crippling challenge had before it.  After all, the scrubs need to feel powerful and unbeatable with a version of pvp that changes the rules from pve so they can mindlessly spam powers.
Currently; Not doing any streaming, found myself with less time available recently.  Still playing starbound periodically, though I am thinking of trying other games.  Don't tell me to play mmohtg's though please :).  Getting back into participating in VO and the successors again to.

I noticed there was a change with Challenging Strikes description when I was leveling a newb recently but that's all I know.

Should probably keep up with what's going on but I haven't been. I'm still a little raw from the nerfs over 6 months ago and am choosing to bury my head in the sand since coming back to play CO again.

Never did like that Automaton.. Oi what a painful toon to level.. I felt like apologizing after every Grab! for leeching. That whole Automaton idea just kinda failed hard.
