NEW GAME MODE

LAST STAND


The Skaven are attacking in large numbers and Ubersreik stands undefended. The only thing standing between total defeat or glorious victory is your ability to survive against countless waves of the Skaven horde.

Last Stand is a Survival game mode with the goal of defending your position on a smaller map. Enemies will come in “waves” and increase in both difficulty and tactical strength for each wave.

Regarding weapon balancing and specifically talking about the bright wizards ranged loadout, we try to look at it both from the perspective of overall power level in comparison with the other heroes loadout and the internal balance of the staffs themselves.

Balancing the Bright Wizard is always a bit tricky since she’s mainly ranged based and has the overheat mechanic on everything so there’s a fine line between making her completely OP and feeling slightly lackluster. One of the main things I try to do is give each staff a nice feel with a clear utility against two of our three enemy types. The reason we decided to take the nerf hammer to the beam staff was that it ended up being great against everything which never was our intent (it’s a combination of bugs and that sinking feeling of “oooh, I didn’t think of that…” to be honest).

The beam staff gets to keep it’s elite stagger and non-FF blast while receiving a more balanced rat ogre/pack master damage output and overall lowering of damage tick. We do compensate a bit with increase max tick (it increases over time while on the same target) but raw damage output is lower that the rather ridiculous level it was at before.

The Fireball staff gets a bump in charged damage to put it over that edge of actually killing stuff on the higher difficulties. Same goes for the Conflagration staffs charged attack. Both of them get a faster charge time as well in order to make them better suited to NM/CATA play.

On the topic of Friendly Fire, we’ve made no changes in this patch but we want to look at it and balance it further. Some spells become utterly useless with it (like the Beam staffs blast) while others have it as a balancing feature (Conflagration, which is otherwise quite weak against anything bigger than a slave). I’d like to think that there is something interesting that comes with the added difficulty of finding angles for ranged support but I don’t think we’re quite there yet.

Finally, the Bolt staff get’s some special treatment and gets a homing spear to make it a bit more interesting. It kind of just feels better and adds a bit of flair to the weapon. The charge times is also reduced while the fast bolts gets some better aim spread and slight bump in damage and headshotting capability. The goal here is to help it climb that rather steep damage requirement that later difficulties introduce as it simply took too long for it to do it’s job.

So a lot of this round of tweaks target the higher difficulties while trying to retain a good balance and nice sense of wonder for new players as they experience each staff for the first time while maintaining the hopefully interesting notion that every weapon is awesome most of the times, but no weapon is awesome all the time.

Cheers!
