Patch notes - 2016-03-24


  • Developer

    Hi folks,

    Quite a few changes since the last build. Hopefully for the better in most cases!

    Changes since the last build:

    Disclaimer

    Timed parries was supposed to be in this build and block strength was changed to not really be a factor with it, it somehow didn’t make it into the build but the block strength change did meaning parrying is actually worse then before in this build.

    Next build (next week) will be more representative of things we’re trying based on your feedback so far and should be in a better state then this one.

  • Nice job guys!

  • Mod

    Nice work guys. Just wondering what happened to some of Tinkers moves. They seem to have vanished. The move where she puts the ball on the floor which then can aim targeted shots at people for example.



  • @Tyoson Both that and the gravity ball seemed fine to me, neither had any bugs that I found so far. The same with the halo stab.
