UPDATE 31 Patch Notes

Thu Nov 29, 2018 11:46 am
Image

Season’s greetings Snipers!

Can you believe it’s already December? This is the last patch notes from us for 2018 and we are ending the year in style. Plenty of features to talk about so please read on. 



Base revamp

Developer comments: “In this update we have changed how the base looks. Our goal with this change were to make the distinction between the first and the second room clearer and open up the design space for future defense upgrades and features - it also makes it easier for our new players to understand how it works. Since the Base was where the defense is taking place, we moved the Fight button to a more prominent position and only Test Defense remains. We will continue to work on how the base looks and make additional quality of life changes, based on your feedback. Please leave a comment below and let us know your thoughts!”

Image

Room 1:
In this room you will be able to change squad mates, deploy drones, and analyze your defenses. 

Image

Room 2:
In this room you will be able to activate Defense items such as Aegis Barrier or Floodlights. Also, the displayed avatar will wear your DEFENSE GEAR PRESET (Read more about it below).
When you try to test the defense now, you will always fight vs your Defense preset (while you can attack using one of the normal preset slots).


Main Changes:
- Redesigned base layout
- Two base screens - Room 1 (Squad mates) & Room 2 (Avatar)
- Removed the “Fight” button from Base menu (It has been moved on the landing Main Menu)



Defense gear preset

Developer comments: “Many of you were looking for a total of 10 preset slots. That’s not scratched from our to-do list but we’ll have to address some technical issues before adding that many slots into the game. Right now we were able to add one - with a twist. The defense slot will act as an always-equipped gear set (and weapon) that will be activated when players are attacking your base (even if you are offline). This way, you can use your 5 gear slots for offensive purposes, without having to worry about switching to a defensive slot when you log off!”

Main changes:
-Added a 6th gear preset.
-The defense slot will act as an always-equipped gear set (and weapon) 
-Will be activated when players are attacking your base (even if you are offline)
-Added an option in “My base - 2nd Room” to easily change defense weapon

A new Clan boss will rotate once in a while, starting with UPD31!

MECH difficulty level: Insane.



Squad Mates 

Resurrect - Squad Mate ability
Image

 When killed, the squad mate will spawn a ghost object at a certain height above the kill location, which slowly goes down toward the body. If not destroyed in time, it will respawn the squad mate. The HP value of the ghost object is a percent from the HP of the squad mate that generated it.  



New Squad mates CLASS/TYPE - Suppressor
Image


The Suppressor is a new SM type that can be equipped on assault slots. His purpose is to disrupt the player by slowing him down. When he activates his ability, he casts a beam (suppression field) at the player for a set duration. While under the effect of the Suppression field, all the player's actions are slowed down (Fire rate, reload time, aiming, bullet speed, etc.) & gear abilities are disabled/set on cooldown.


Clans changes

Image

Developer comments: “Based on our data and community’s feedback, we decided to increase the structures` max level to 20. Over time, this should increase the overall time spent in core attack phase & also provide your clan members with some other benefits. This is only the first change - we aim to further improve the Clan Wars with future updates.”

Changes:

Clan buildings can now be upgraded to level 20

Currently Level 10 core takes 50% less damage. Does it mean that level 20 core will take 100% less damage?

@Daniel, are the changes to the base limited to only the screens where the base defenses are set up? Or will there be some changes to how the bases look during the PvP match? Would be great to have some new base setups, maybe multiples that can be chosen from or rotated, so the matches aren't so repetitive. This isn't a new suggestion, BTW; I've said this a number of times over the years and others have as well. Would be a great Christmas gift for the players. :)

Do we really need MORE SMs that won't die the first time you kill them. These new abilities are out of control. How about the tiniest bit of realism to the game, when you kill something it should stay dead. Ridiculousness keeps multiplying. Level 20 Clan buildings? OMG.

Thank you so much. The devs originally designed it too well in the first place as you had only a single glace to see all the info you needed and could rapidly add what you wanted. The fact that they kept this effecent layout all this time with only improving the appearance was practicly unbearable. It was long overdue for them to do what they do to this aspect of the game.

Who were the players who asked for this? I'm just asking for a friend.
