    I understand that some scoliosis might happen to children with limb differences anyway (with the use of prosthesis or not) however it seems that the risk actually increases with prosthesis due to being something you are forcing your body to balance constantly and foreign.However even if you don’t use anything there is always an imbalance and pressure on your spine since you are functioning and doing things that require different motions and these are not symmetrical and they put more pressure on your spine.

    sanecore2012 年 10 月 9 日游戏渠道:91版幻想精灵区服:水晶矿洞账号:newsanecreID号:37736角色名:sanecore我的建议/想法:针对新开发的3V3游戏战斗模式,可以肯定的一点是,游戏的战斗格局以及技能配置将会跟原本带来一定的变革,从原来考虑的1回合2技能释放到现在3技能释放,尤其是星级/等级的压制,有可能直接导致速度快的宠物3技能放完只要命中就直接秒杀,这也是为什么现在我们打同等级NPC那么难得原因,压制的太厉害的,第一回合可能还能出下技能,但是第二回合,可能出手机会都没,甚至乎能存活也就是回血了,第三回合也就挂了。这点来说的话,3V3带来的变革,就是需重新考虑怎么配置技能跟宝宝,但是,是否可以考虑下适当降低NPC的难度,或者推出NPC挑战时候的技能可操作模式??交换系统:从4宝宝到6只宝宝,重新练2个BB,太累了,RMB玩家可以1分钟直接搞定,非RMB或者小R呢?可能只有观望了,而转生珠的途径以及价格,不是大众能消化的了的,薄利多销的道理,相信你们应该懂,举个例子,100块一斤肉,但是买的起的就10个人,但是10块钱一斤肉,那么,100个,1000个人都买的起,同样卖肉,可能100块你就只能卖1000块,但是10块呢?你可能卖1万,甚至更多。建议可以考虑用金币兑换钻石,钻石购买转生珠,或者降低转生珠需求数量。总之,你们可以先做市场调查。联盟,感觉开发力度不够,只到2级(可以理解,毕竟刚推出),而且联盟也是1V1的战斗,且随机战斗,希望可以开发更多的战斗模式以及奖励,现在几乎我每天就领2级礼包就完了,打也就记得就打,不记得也就不打了。可以针对荣誉高低进行奖励。宠物属性,RMB宠确实太离谱了,原本跟龙打已经是输多赢少,现在连龙打NPC都打不赢,少了很多RMB玩家,可否考虑下平衡RMB与非RMB的距离呢?不否认别人花了钱,但是,只要距离适当,相信大众还是会考虑玩,毕竟,RMB玩家占少数,多数人练杰瑞、奥巴之类的,也就小投资,聚少成多,你们会明白我的用意的!好了,就这么多吧,只针对更新的内容提的!其他的策划内容,我在18183的论坛有留,希望你们会看到我的帖子!
