0.21.14

Gameplay changes

  • Overshield gains from ability and weapon upgrades, as well as pickup rewards, have been reworked to no longer be instant. Instead they are given over time at a maximum rate of 10 overshield per second. This will tick until the full amount of overshield has been added to the player’s total health pool.

  • Damage over time effects of the same type who originate from the same player, are no longer triggered multiple times while one is active (while you are poisoned if you become poisoned again by the same player, the initial poison effect will stop instead of both continuing at the same time, but you could still be ignited by that player with both effects continuing at the same time, and you could still be poisoned by other players with multiple poison effects continuing at the same time). This change is being done to reduce the overall strength of Ignite and Poison.

0.21.11

With this patch we are testing a significant gameplay change: the weapon pool for each Suit has changed from 4 weapons per Suit to 3 weapons per Suit. After you have spent some time playing with the new changes we would appreciate if you could could tell us what you think of this change through THIS FORM.

Gameplay changes

  • As a test, each Suit now only has 3 weapons in their available pool. This way players will have a higher likelihood of getting at least one weapon that they’re comfortable with, and will have a more stable weapon loadout from round to round by having access to at least one of the weapons that they had in the previous round. The weapons being removed as a test are: the Scout’s Wolfhound (shotgun), the Chunk’s Blaster, and the Eggbot’s SB-34 MG (the Scout still has the SB-34 MG). For the moment this will result in the Progression tree not matching the weapons available for each Suit.
  • In the Warmup mode, frags now award 100 currency instead of 200.
  • In the Warmup mode, assists now award 25 currency.
  • The “+1 Upgrade card next death” Team Reward Now only grants 1 upgrade card selection each death, if your team has picked up multiple of those Team Rewards, you will receive the rest on your following deaths (whether those deaths happen in the same round or in the following rounds), instead of receiving them all of at once. This upgrade card selection will only occur if you’re not the last player alive when you die, so as to not influence the card selection at the start of the next round.
  • Tweaked the speed and gravity of all throwable items to ensure consistency between them.
  • Increased the “Data Mining” passive upgrade’s interest per round from 10% to 25%.
  • The Eggbot’s Holy Sphere no longer deals damage by default. 
  • The Eggbot’s Holy Sphere now first applies a small heal burst and then a more significant heal over time.
  • The Holy Sphere upgrade “Lingering Touch” which used to cause the Holy Sphere to heal teammates over time and deal damage to enemies over time, now only applies a damage over time effect to enemies (the base Holy Sphere now has a heal over time, and continues to have that heal over time when you get this upgrade).
  • Increased the radius for the Eggbot’s Healing Aura from 300 to 350.

Gameplay fixes

  • Fixed a bug that caused both weapons to be reloaded when canceling the reload of one weapon within the leniency window.
  • Fixed an issue causing the Hookshot to incorrectly disconnect at high frame rates.
  • Fixed an issue where you would sometimes get an upgrade selection while you didn’t have a Suit selected, causing the selection to be empty.
  • Fixed an issue where the Healing Beam would linger in place after a player died while using it.
  • Fixed a bug where the “Mark for Delete” passive upgrade only granted 1 currency on success.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the “Mark for Delete” indicator to be removed.
  • Fixed an issue causing the “Self Healing” upgrade not to work for the Healing Beam.
  • Fixed an issue with the Rocket Launcher’s  “Max Ammo” upgrade being incorrectly locked in the progression tree.
  • Fixed an issue causing players to get the Rocket Launcher “Rocket Replenish” upgrade despite it being locked in the progression tree.

0.21.10
