🤔nerfed it? How so?

Shooting was delayed randomly by 0.1s-1s, which caused cleverly placed towers or spawned archers to be significantly stronger than other.

Now it is consistent, and on average they shoot 0.05s faster (in continuous shooting).

So can you explain me how increasing fire rate, is a nerf?

ok then I understood it wrong. I thought 0.05 s slower. sry

no it is 0.05 s shorter delay (on average), so faster. And most importantly it is consistent, so if two players spawn same squad, they have same "power", instead of one being better, because of being spawned at different time.

Strikers.png Strikers:
1. Remove "Looter" ability
2. Add new passive "Gang Up!": When being surrounded by at least 3 friendly orcs in a 25m radius, all incoming damage will be spread among all gang members relative to each unit's current life points. Additionally, affected units take 15% less damage.
3. Add new passive "Group Pressure": Unit is immune to Unity and its effects.

We are giving Thugs' "Gang Up!" passive to Strikers and changing both Strikers and Thugs' abilities to work based on friendly orcs instead of just friendly Thugs. This will allow Strikers and Thugs to form a gang together, creating a new Fire T1 combo. Additionally, we are fully removing "Looter" from Strikers. 

Our balance team is currently in the beginning stages of reintroducing a rebalanced Looter ability to the game for higher tier units as part of a project to allow each faction to have a power acceleration mechanic. Shadow's Resource Booster is the most obvious example of such an acceleration mechanic. Nature also has existing acceleration tools in the Breeding Grounds effect (unit cost reduction) and Promise of Life (unbinding units). We think Looter could be a good tool to enable a unique acceleration mechanic for Fire. More details will be announced on this topic when proposals become more concrete.

 

Fire_Bomb.png Fire Bomb:
1. Damage: 715 up to 1650 in total ➜ 720, up to 1800 in total
2. Add "Fast Construction" - Construction time is reduced by 50%.
3. Allow to hit air units & enable splash overflow fix.

Small buff to Fire Bomb that should allow it to be used more aggressively. 

 

First, I love this game. Battleforge was a uniquely beautiful game to play. But now, I cant stand the basis on which a large majority of these changes are being made. Mix decks and PvE take priority over the great changes you could make. Looter on strikers was a really nice feature to have, Especially considering the cost of strikers and its style of play. The same went for thugs when they had it, it applied a layer of power threat for fire that played into their heavy offensive playstyle in PVP. If this was done to bring mix decks more in line with the pure decks at tier 1 that would make sense but each and every patch the mix decks get tons of attention and Tier 2 fire in particular along with the other pure decks are ignored. Before, mix decks were fun because of card versatility but at the cost of the full power of what that architype could provide (example Fire - Offense, nature - CC/heals, Frost - Defense, Shadow - high risk high reward). But now, mix decks command not only the most versatility but also merge the best of what each architype can produce with virtually no drawbacks. It genuinely feels like the balance team never plays PVP or if they do, they only use mix decks. Strikers was an off meta card in PVP that strongly represented the offensive architype of Pure Fire, now its just another dead card as a PVP option. Changes like Fire Bomb give me hope, cause its more in line with what id like to see in terms of creativity and giving dead cards viability in both PVP/PVE. I understand we have a small team working on this and I appreciate them, but please don't release patches that completely hinder certain cards or architypes without providing something to balance it out.

Strikers were off-meta in old EA days, but after the Thugs nerf, people figured out how broken Strikers were and there was a short period, were the whole T1 meta was focused arouns them and it was completely ridiculous.

Pure decks also received attention in PvP. Fire even got a whole new card in Burning Spears, Frost received buffs to White Rangers and Mountain Rowdy and Pure Nature received a massive overhaul with buffs/reworks to many cards, including Parasite, Parasite Swarm, Deep One, Ghostspears etc.

Furthermore, splash decks have also been hit with nerfes, e.g. Mountaineer, Ghostspears being made pure nature and Nerfs to Stonekin units such as Stone Tempest.

In fact, the team managed to give each faction more of an individual identity and more playstyle options than ever before.

The PvP balance developers in our team are also some of the best players there are and saying they never play PvP is just completely wrong.

Cheapskate achiev - does it miss information that all players should have common decks only? or its a bug? or it don't work on 4/12 players map?

Cheapsake and all new achievements - which do not state a group requirement explicitly - only require you to fulfill the requirements. Other behaviors are unintended, if you won a map without the achievement counting it, please let us know with additional information which map - if possible with a replay. The achievement should also work on 12 player scenarios.

We will add explicit text for all achievements with such solo requirements to improve clarity.
