This weekend we got a whole slew of balance tweaks, 2 new units, and the return of an old removed unit!
Check out the full patch notes from the Lunarch blog. Then check out some of the inital reddit feedback on the changes, not very positive!
This should certainly make things interesting for the Fall Masters League and Prismata Alpha World Championships still ongoing!
Now to the good stuff, the 3 “new” units!
- Ferritin Sac
A new summer update this weekend is bringing some minor balance changes, new emotes/skins, minor features (copy and paste from chat!), and most importantly: 3 new units!
You can read about the rest on Lunarch’s tuesday blog post as this will focus on the 3 new units.
- Blood Phage
- Galvani Drone
To help players trying to get a grasp on how to best use the new units I decided to grab a bunch of replays of some of the best players doing just that during the Breach Party!
In discussing the new units with some of these players in global chat, the consensus seems to be that Tantalum Ray and Thorium Dynamo will probably need a nerf as they are pretty powerful at the moment, although the Breach Party settings and newness may be partly to blame. One player even said most games with Dynamo seem to result in the seed supply for all units running out before the game even ends. There didn’t seem to be a p1/p2 favoring combo so far except perhaps with Doomed Drone + Dynamo favoring P2. Overall the feeling seems to be that Dynamo makes things feel pretty weird, almost like April Fools day!
Time for a summer BREACH PARTY!
Tonight at Midnight EST, in addition to the balance patch with some chill nerfs, here comes 3 new “breach proof” units and a set of special 24 hour temporary changes to boost breach proof strategy play and even a fun emote!
From the Prismata blog:
Tarsier skins go!
Here’s links to some of the images of skins revealed thus far:
