Should Damage text or Combat chat be implemented ? 

I definitely want to see combat info in chat I ask about something like that in my ALPHA feedback thread, I want to know stuff as how much dmg I deal or how much dmg enemies deal to me, I want to know when my atks/skills crit also when I resist, block, evade, parry an atk all those stuff I find this absolutely necessary & I can't fathom how the game have nothing like that till now, now about the damage text you write what exactly do you mean? you mean visible numbers above our targets heads with the dmg we deal? because if that's what you mean then no I don't want to see something like that.

It sounds like you want combat chat , which is one of the options in the poll. Damage text has always meant to me, the floating numbers. Combat chat or combat log appear to be what you seek.

I wasn't a fan of this at first, way back in like 2013. I love it now. It means people aren't super anal about their builds/gear. You can go by your gut and what you enjoy doing versus "Hm, I do 12 less DPS this way... Guess I better change everything." Makes everything a little less cookie cutter. Although people generally run the same shit anyways, but the ambiguity doesn't hurt in my opinion.

I voted no because I don't want this game to be all about numbers. I've played too many games that require certain damage or dps thresholds to join parties or guilds. The game turns into just staring at numbers. Even though I know underneath it all this game is algorithms and spreadsheets, I'd like it to continue to attempt to hide that fact from me. Right now I see no numbers and I like it. 

With that in mind, I'd have no issue with something, be it text or not that better indicates a miss or parry or block or what have you. As right now it can be hard to tell if your attack even hit. I'd rather this be visual and not text based, but it may already be that way and I just can't seem to tell or read the mobs correctly.

Oh ok, I don't want floating numbers, it doesn't suit something like that a game like BD, but combat info on chat this is a MUST!

There is nothing wrong with that idea. The numbers in the air will make the game to look like some arcade fight for cellphone. Anyway the damage will give you zero usable information. But if it is in chat who cares.

I think people have relied way too much on the numbers. Way too much. It doesn't sound very fun at all. I've relied on damage numbers very little and do just fine from trial and error, what suits my play style, and gut feeling. I hardly even look at numbers when I play.

However, I would not mind having info like if something was blocked, evaded, etc.

You should change "I don't want both" to "I don't want either".

The first means you want one of the two, but not the two at the same time, an exclusive OR.

The second means that you don't want any kind of damage text to be implemented into the game.

I would like the combat chat. I never liked floating numbers, I have enough stuff to watch on my screen. But I would like to see how much damage im doing, and how impactful that crit I did was. So a chat option for me
