Patch 3704 Release Thread

Postby JaggedAppliance » 18 Jun 2019, 21:45

Today marks the release of Patch 3704. We have prepared an array of changes aimed at introducing some fixes, increasing unit options and improving the inter factional balance. Two of the major changes include the new and improved scathis, now a gameender class weapon that can destroy entire bases with just a few volleys. Patchnotes can be found here: http://content.faforever.com/patchnotes/3704.html

Why is it considered "balancing" to change the characteristics of units by several hundred percent? That's not a minor adjustment.

Balancing isn’t only minor adjustments. Some units are just so niche and unused that they need such a major change to be finally seen in game. In effect, it brings balance to the game by removing very specific requirements that need to be met in order to utilize a unit.

yes i can understand why you are confused here.
Issue here is that the T3 and T4 arty serve different purpose.
T3 arty act as conventional unit for arty stage (obvious i know)
T4 rapid arty is a game ender in association with the paragon. Nerfing it to have higher BT (as it would be logical) would end up as nerfing the paragon by quite a lot. (which is not desirable)

ahh the community never disappoints. Completely shit (edit)*on* loads of strategies that inevitably lead to arty and nukes becoming op due to static play. And then suddenly the community is outraged cos t3 arty builds abit slower :4head Exps take so much bp anyway this is literally a balance change rather than a gameplay divergence.
