Over the last few days we’ve received plenty of feedback on the forum and from playing experience on servers. We’ve picked up on some gameplay issues that we hope this patch will ease, such as making it easier to finish off the round, and clearing plant structures.
To do this we’ve focused on two aspects, the heavy soldier and general bite stamina. The amount of stamina used by bite attacks has been reduced for all classes, so now you can munch on structures a lot longer before running out of stamina.
The bigger change is to the heavy soldiers, which have received a major stats boost. The heavy soldiers in the initial release proved to be quite weak instead of the tank we wanted, and certainly not worth 80 resources. So now with big boosts to health and armour, we hope this will make it much easier to end the game in the final stand off, as well as making the heavy much more efficient at clearing plant structures.
As well as working on gameplay issues, this patch also crunches some annoying bugs and adds new sound content!
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome our newest member to the team, Ron “Narfig” Elliot. Narfig is the team’s new sound designer, and has already been hard at work producing sounds for this patch. Give the guy a nice welcome on the forum!
