PATCH NOTES 2.20.2

In 2.20.0 Patch Notes, we incorrectly communicated that Vengeful Barrier Perk duration has been reduced to 10 seconds, the correct value for this Perk duration is 15 seconds.


WARMONGER

FEATS

Corruption (Affects both Nuxia and Warmonger’s feats)

  • Corruption is no longer triggered by having Soldiers from your team in the Area of Effect

Corruption Blade

  • Decreased active time before going to cooldown (without hitting a target) to 15 seconds (from 20)
  • Increased Cooldown to 75 seconds (from 60)

Corruption Blast

  • Increased Cooldown to 180 (from 150)

 

CORE COMBAT UPDATE ADJUSTMENTS

STAMINA ADJUSTMENTS

  • Attacks performed with Light Attack input now cost 9 stamina (from 12) with the following exceptions:
    • Combo Lights now cost 6 stamina (from 12)

Developer’s Comment: Combo Lights refers to Light attacks that are guaranteed after other Light or Heavy attacks (excludes Bashes)

For example, this includes Warden's Side Light -> Light combo, Shaolin's Light -> Light -> Light combos, Shinobi’s Light -> Light combo, etc.

  • Berserker's Light attack after Heavy Feints now cost 6 stamina (from 12)

 

Developer’s Comment: Berserker’s Light attack after Heavy Feints are considered to be Combo lights, and as such should have cost 6 stamina.

 

DAMAGE ADJUSTMENTS

Developer’s Comment: We have adjusted the damage for multiple attacks. On average, Heavy Attacks deal less damage, and light attacks remain mostly the same, but there are some exceptions. The new damage values are closer to, but not identical, to Testing Grounds Week 2. We looked at community feedback and our own internal feedback and examined every attack in regard to its utility and properties and re-balanced their damage accordingly.

This was done to ensure that fights last a bit longer, punishes are less damaging and players have more time to anticipate what their opponents do. 

We have also raised Zone Attack damage for the heroes that rely on them as their sole Guard Break punish.

CORE COMBAT UPDATE

The Core Combat Update is a global series of improvements that affects all fighters, consisting of the following improvements:

  • New system makes fight moves look consistently faster over the network:
    • Removed the visual variability of opponent’s fight moves speeds caused by timing of the inputs
    • As a result, for all fight moves, the first 100ms of animation and user interface are consistently skipped over the network (whether delayed or buffered)
    • As a result, feints are also more believable
  • Damage adjustments
    • Generally, Light Attack damage is reduced
    • Generally, counter-attack tools damage is reduced
    • Generally, Heavy Finishers damage stays high to incentivise following through with your Chains
  • Recoveries normalized
    • Light Attacks generally are now frame disadvantaged (to weaken “Light Spam”)
    • Heavy Finishers generally are now frame advantaged (to incentivise following through with your Heavy Chain Finisher)
  • Stamina penalties removed
    • Now there is no extra stamina cost on Miss, Block and Parry
  • Light Stamina Costs are now generally 12 (from 6)
  • Light Light Chains can now be Dodged out of (due to branching timing changes)
  • Dodge Attacks that were 500ms are now increased to 533ms
    • This affects Peacekeeper, Shaman, Valkyrie, Tiandi, Conqueror, Gladiator, Raider, Nuxia

IMPROVEMENTS

ONLINE

  • [Adjustment] While launching the game, a different text will be displayed for each step of the connection process
  • [Adjustment] Increase the time allocated for the game connection process to help some rare cases when downloading game data took too long, reducing the occurrences of error 2-00002911
  • [Bug Fix] Fixed some situations where players were not able to receive rewards or buy scavenger crates for some heroes showing as unlocked

BREACH

  • [Adjustment] Increased Ram Health to 9750 (from 9000)

Developer Comments: Following the release of the Breach Improvements in Season 1 of Year 4, we saw that the Win/Loss ratios were now more even across the different maps. However, we see that the Defending teams still hold a significant advantage over the Attacking teams overall. Raising the Ram's Health bar by an additional cauldron strike will help the Attackers clear through the final Gate or allow them to have a little more breathing room in number of respawns in the Commanders Phase.
