Summer 2016 Update

This update spent a long time coming. After many iterations, the parry has finally reached a form that is fair to high and low level players on low and high speed. An array of smaller tweaks are also included.


Dice
After the first year of post-release, I've been more or less hands off in terms of character balance. I believe it's a good thing that these things don't constantly change. After consideration I have decided to make an exemption for Dice. He received some tweaks that make his special move faster and a little more versatile.


Parry
Parrying at low speed now allows the victim to live, but grants full energy to the initiator. This allows specials to be used to guarantee ball control after release. At high speed, parries become a certain kill instead.

Just activating the parry increases the speed by 3 now. Which makes it harder to constantly spam (as you'll lose the ball over time due to the speed). And can be used as a tool to speed up the ball more without doing a more predictable smash.


Change log:
- Parry hitpause delay scales from 40 to 80 speed, 29 frames to 0
- Additional hitpause delay is added if the player is parried from behind
- Serve Auto-parry knockback is reduced to make it certain-kill
- A successful parry completely fills up the energy meter now
- Special moves can be performed after a successful parry, but will be activated at the end of the hitpause
- Parry knockback stun releases 3 frames earlier when pushed against a wall
- Dice's special ball bounce duration is reduced from 16 to 8 frames
- Dice can now choose to release a bunted ball from the ground by holding 'down'
- Reduced clash knockback
- Endlessly extending parry hitpause bug fixed
- Player release before ball release on parry bug fixed
- Latch sprite fix on taunt
- Switch sprite fix on various frames

Jaw Breakers Live Video

https://youtu.be/guqDJnGkmnM
Hype matches, top players from all around Europe and a great setting made the first live Lethal League tournament an event to remember! We had our boy Gijs from Mortier Media make a video to give you a taste of how the event went down. Check out the footage of Jaw Breakers Live!

The music in the video is by Rahzan. The tracks ‘Astronomic’ and ‘Hey’ were a great fit for the vibe we had going. Check out his latest album ‘Home’, released just last month, here. If you’d like to support him, you can (in true underground fashion) give him a mail and ask to buy a copy!

Jaw Breakers Live was won by aTastyT0ast from Germany. As a high placed EU player in the previous Jaw Breakers online tournament all eyes were on him and he has proven to be a worthy champion. On top of the prize money and Lethal League goodies, he will be awarded a special ingame icon to show off with! We hope aTastyT0ast will be there next time to defend his spot and all the others (and more) to challenge him!

The top 5 results:
1) aTastyT0ast (Germany)
2) Ice Coldas (Netherlands)
3) Glioburd (France)
4) YinYin (Germany)
5) Tenasow (Denmark) and Creme Brulee (Netherlands)

To wrap this post up we also got some new merch from EightySixed! Check out this brand new Lethal League tee. Now buy this or the critical error WILL be you!



And as always, follow, retweet, like, love, blablablabla Instagram, Twitter, Facebook

Lethal league is all it is supposed to be.

A fast-paced game that takes the meaning of frustration to a new level. As the ball gathers speed so does your desire to win the round, the intensity that the sound and the visuals create give you the feeling that you are in the middle of some sort of futuristic sports game.

Don't expect a triple A title. it's just a simple game and is simply fun.

As a linux user, I basically can not play this game at all. Steam overlay will crash the game 100% of the time, and the amount of graphical bugs I get is insane. I overqualify for all of the system requirements.

There is no ranking system for online matches, so complete noobs get matched against people who can pull off combos then smack your corpse across the screen to rub salt in the wound.

This game is a fantastic and solid battle-royale with a stylistic twist in the form of the anti-gravity ball. Great soundtrack, fantastic visual design, tight controls on KB+M and gamepad, excellent multiplayer, and tilting taunts. The hidden mechanics behind each character make each one interesting and unique with their own playstyle. Can definitely recommend.

Oh, plus it's 1$ on Humble Bundle right now, which is basically daylight robbery. Check it out.

NOTE: This review was made during the current build of 8/24/16

Lethal League is a 2D unique fighting game that has several similarities to other fighting games and even non-fighters. and has a unique gameplay style consisting of a single dodgeball that can be comboed. Other than that gameplay mechanic, the game itself is quite similar to Super Smash Bros. since the character moveset functions identical to it and the percentage/launch speed goes to the ball instead of the player, and the Stock/Time mechanic is still there, but instead uses rounds similar to other fighting games like Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter. The game has a special bar that functions like the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale one since it increases while doing direct hits. The small but varied roster consists of iconic characters with there own unique gameplay styles and special moves. Maps are all very similar but have different height and width, but no real stage hazards. The soundtrack is a love/hate thing and is really just based on your taste of music. The art-style is nothing special and unique, but combined with the soundtrack, it feels like playing a fighting game based off of Jet Set Radio. However, the lack of content in this game is not really worth the price considering the low ammount of characters, stages, and things to unlock in this game. Overall, this is a peculiar but decent indie fighting game that should be bought when on sale, because of it being a bit overpriced for what it's worth.

Verdict: 7/10 "...a peculiar but decent indie fighting game that should be bought when on sale..."

A unique, fun and quirky fighter where the aim is to hit your opponent with a ball you hit at them. You could argue the premise is simple and the lack of story mode may put people off. But it's a fighting game and an incredibly fun one at that. Especially with friends. I wouldn't personally pay full price though since it has such a small roster of characters and lack of modes.

Just started to play and what I've seen so far is enough to recommend this game to everyone.

Mechanics are rock solid (amazing with every game mode, from 1v1 to 2v2 to free for all)
Animations are really well done and backgrounds are just as simple as fitting to create a futuristic (cyberpunk) atmosphere.
Music, just a cherry on top, blends perfectly and gives a certain enjoyable rhythm to the matches.

It's not a "deep" fighting game, but it is definitely a unique one (no other fighting/brawling games have a dodgeball-like mechanic as far as I know) and even if there are no fancy commands/moves it gets pretty technical with angles/feints/tactics.

Again, strongly recommended to everyone.
