The parachute won't open.
Hi everyone, lemmingllama here. I hope that everyone has been enjoying the raid changes we made in the 5.4.0 update. In this DevUpdate, I’ll be explaining some of the upcoming raid changes we are making to complement the work that we already released in 5.4, and also discussing one of our major changes that we’ll be including to completely change how players defeat the titans and progress through stages. Let’s get into the upcoming content for version 5.5!
With the 5.4 update, we added Cursed Armor that gave a multiplicative debuff to Burst Damage or Affliction Damage. However, the Area and Enemy bonuses that were added in tier 3 currently have additive damage bonuses. In order to standardize these bonuses, we are making all Area and Enemy damage bonuses multiplicative. This should lead to greater diversity in strategy when attacking the Titan Lords, and lead to some nice damage boosts when you choose raids with a +Damage buff.
Additionally, the 5.4 update released some card balance changes to help make cards more viable overall. Two cards were notably unchanged despite not being used as often, specific Whip of Lightning and Decaying Strike. With these cards, we didn’t want to just make some small numerical changes, but instead rework the cards to make the cards stronger and more viable. Overall, these changes should allow Whip of Lightning and Decaying Strike to be used much more often and deal some great damage!
Whip of Lightning is being reworked to double the amount of activation chance you gain per afflicted part. However, it will also have an activation chance cap set to 10%. This cap is higher than the current values that Whip of Lightning can achieve, and it’s doable while attacking fewer parts. This will allow Whip of Lightning to be used with a larger variety of afflictions, as it will max in effectiveness once five Titan Lord parts are afflicted. I expect that players will be using Whip of Lightning alongside afflictions such as Maelstrom, Ravenous Swarm, and Radioactivity after these changes to deal a lot of damage.
As for Decaying Strike, people chose to not use the card as often due to the damage decreasing as the Titan Lords were damaged. This would lead players to lose damage if their clan members attacked before they were able to use Decaying Strike. With the rework to the card, we are changing it to instill decay in parts that are already damaged, helping clear Titan Lord parts that players have been attacking and... keep reading on reddit ➡
This happened about a year ago, as COVID began. I'm recording the voicemails and this man leaves one enraged about a price increase, accusing of gouging and threatens to come and horse whip us.
We call back all voicemails so I'm dreading that one, but definitely not doing it right away.
I go into emails and see that he's written a lengthy rage induced email as well about price gouging and what he's going to do. It's threatening. He's definitely going too far.
And then there's a screen shot of the product included and I see the issue.
He's mistakenly changed the currency from USD to CAD (Canadian dollars) on the website. The price hasn't increased at all.
So we reply very nicely and matter of factly and point that out.
He later replies: "My sincerest apologies."
