8-Bit Hordes Update #28 - 11/10/17

Greetings once again!

We're making a balance tweak today to fix a problem found in our last update. Thanks for all the feedback and help in identifying this issue!

-8Bit

BALANCE UPDATES:
  • GUARDIANS - HEAVY DRONE: Fixed issue with Machine Gun weapon timing that was causing the DPS to be double the intended value.
  • LIGHTBRINGERS - AIR ELEMENTAL: Build cost reduced to 130 (was 150), Build time reduced to 13 (was 15)
  • LIGHTBRINGERS - TREANT: Health reduced to 175 (was 190)
  • MARINES - OGRE: Health reduced to 230 (was 250); shield health remains the same

8-Bit Hordes Update #27 - 10/27/17

It's time for another balance update based on our awesome players and a little bit of internal research! Have fun and enjoy the player-sponsored tournament!

-8Bit

GENERAL BALANCE CHANGES
  • MARINES BARRACKS: Build cost reduced to 300 (was 400), Build time reduced to 15 (was 20)
  • MARINES HEAVY FACTORY: Build cost reduced to 575 (was 700), Build time reduced to 25 (was 30)
  • MARINES DRONE WORKS: Build cost reduced to 575 (was 700), Build time reduced to 25 (was 30)
  • MARINES SHRIKE: Build cost reduced to 150 (was 180), Build time reduced to 12 (was 15)
  • MARINES HARPY: Adjusted spacing of attack to make it more accurate. DPS did not change.
  • GUARDIANS HEAVY DRONE: Weapons targeting has been adjusted; rockets are now only fired at air, machine gun only fires at ground. The MG weapon has been changed to NEUTRAL damage. It is now a continuous fire weapon (not volleys). This sets the DPS to a consistent 6.0 vs. all ground target types. Rocket damage and timing has not changed.
  • DEATHSWORN SHAMAN: Air attack damage changed to neutral (this is mostly for data clarity since the anti-air damage was already 1-1).
  • CYCLOPS: Increased AoE radius of club hit to 75 (was 50)
  • RENEGADES HEAVY TANK: Anti-Air rocket base damage increased to 5 (was 4)
