Stupidly overpowered blue frogs
Let me preface my complaint by saying this is a great and very original game. Part of the fun of the game is the difficulty, but it seems like certain parts of the game were made difficult in an unfair and unfun way. Chief amongst these is the blue frogs.
I've had characters killed in interesting ways. Epic struggles with dogmen, slow deaths from infection, long drawn out starvations.. but the repeated "one hit" frogmen deaths aren't rewarding or interesting. More like glitchy bad game design. My last frogman death has irked me enough that I'm probably done playing the game for a while unless these stupid frogmen get nerfed or something.
The level that these guys have been hopped up is just ridiculous. I have been killed by these jerks more than any other enemy in the game. I've had an easier time killing dogmen. At least after killing dogmen i can get a nice coat.
Here's my most ridiculous encounter with the Blue frogs:
Shot 4 arrows before one hit. once one hit, i tried to flee. failed. Shot 6 more arrows. 4 hit. Blue frog was bleeding, coughing blood, eyes were hanging out of his sockets and everything else. Oh.. barefoot too.
I tried to flee.
he is closer.. so i figure. ok ill use the crowbar. He only has a flashlight and he's bleeding all over the place and nearly dead.
I try to hack him with a cleaver. It misses. He hits me with a flashlight. I get hit in the head and pass out. game over. I was at 100% health. 5 moves/turn. Nothing wrong. Instead-dead from a flashlight.... (btw my build was tough/melee/strong)
If the game made these guys into zombies or some other supernatural hellspawn.. that's fine, but at least give them a weakness and call them zombies. Not "cult members". I can't run from them. Can't fight them. Can't even dependably hide from them.
