8-Bit Armies: Arena Game Update #8 - 09/22/17

Hey everyone! Happy Fall Update!

With the seasonal change today we though it was a good time to do a balance patch, which we have been experimenting with for some time now. In addition, we also fixed (hopefully) a rare crash on startup that a few users were having.

Have fun!

BALANCE CHANGES:

  • SUPERWEAPON STRUCTURES (ALL FACTIONS): Build cost reduced to 1500 (was 2000)
  • DRAGON: Health reduced to 180 (was 200), The damage over time effect on the anti-air shot has been removed; base damage remains the same.
  • FLOATING BRAIN: Attack range increased to 600 (was 500)
  • BLAST BUG: Base damage reduced to 16 (was 18)
  • OGRE: Movement speed increased to 190 (was 180)
  • GREMLIN: Build cost reduced to 120 (was 160), Build time reduced to 10 (was 15)
  • RESOURCE ENHANCER (MARINES): Power drain reduced to 80 (was 100)
  • TECH LAB (MARINES): Power drain reduced to 130 (was 150)
  • CLOAKING GENERATOR (MARINES): Power drain reduced to 130 (was 150)

8-Bit Armies Arena Game Update #7

Hi everyone!

We continue to monitor our multiplayer statics and read through the forums to determine if there are any corrections that need to be made to balance or the game in general. Thanks to you, we've identified a number of small tweaks that needed to be made - especially to Regent mode in multiplayer.

Have fun!

-8Bit

PATCH NOTES:
GENERAL:
  • Added new armor type "Neutral" to game. This will not show up in the GUI listing since it is only used for the Regents in Assassination mode. Neutral armor removes all damage modifiers from weapons - the target will take the weapon's base damage from attacks.
  • The Regent unit for all factions (used in Assassination Mode) have been updated to use Neutral Armor.
  • Shortened a variety of non-english texts to fit properly within the UI

UNIT/STRUCTURE BALANCE:
  • Cannon Turret (Guardians): Damage type changed to Neutral, Base damage increased to 20 (was 15), Shot speed slowed to 1.5 (was 1.0), Can now target aircraft
  • Wraith (Deathsworn): The heal effect was not stacking to 3 as intended (like all other healers) - this has been fixed, Heal aura increased to 300 radius (was 250) to match skeleton conversion effect radius, Build cost reduced to 140 (was 160).
  • Ballista (Lightbringers): Line of attack widened slightly; damage remains the same, but it should be easier to hit with it.
  • Phoenix (Lightbringers): Base damage reduced to 14 (was 16), AoE radius of shots reduced to 30 (was 50).
