PATCH NOTES FASE 3 (CLICCA PER LEGGERE)

Post originale: Ubisoft Forum

PTS 3 – Countdown, Expertise, New Gears and Weapons + Bug fixes following phases 1 and 2 .

 

We found the reason behind a prominent Delta error. It was caused by talents with stacking ability of gear and weapons. Therefore, we have removed the “Heartbreaker” set and the “Catharsis” mask from the PTS saves and from most places we could in time. If you come across it in anyway, we ask you not to use it. Fixing this issue is the number one priority for the TU15 release.

All the changes described in the Phase 2 Check-in and in the changelog below will become available with the TU15 release. This decision is equally disappointing for you and for us, but right now that is the only way we can ensure the stability of the build and let you test all the other changes we made following Phase 2.

  • Heartbreaker Gear set is removed from the PTS3 build as it causes Delta 03 errors and can result in game crashes.
  • Multiple incomplete groups created instead of a full group while matchmaking for Countdown.

  • Countdown groups are pulled in dark hours when group leader presses the “Start the Matchmake” for the Countdown while having invite pop up on pending.

EXPERTISE

Expertise is a progression feature, that allows to improve the maximum performance of select weapons, gear sets, skill variants and more. This feature is composed of two types of progression systems: the Expertise Level and the Proficiency Rank.

  • Each eligible item type has a Proficiency Rank, which can be increased either through Donations or Kill XP. Only when an item type reaches the highest Proficiency Rank possible, will the agent become Proficient with it and be able to increase the Grade of the individual items of that type. Every item type has the same amount of Proficiency Ranks.
  • Additionally, each agent has a unique Expertise Level, which increases as the Proficiency Ranks are gained in more item types
  • Expertise and Proficiency is account-wide

Types: 

  • Expertise Level: Agent level
  • Proficiency Rank: Item type level
  • Proficient: Reaching Max Proficiency Rank in an item type
  • Grade: Individual item level

BALANCE ADJUSTMENTS 

Adjustments have been made to the functioning of various talents in order to curtail undesirable behaviors and imbalance.
Overview:

  • Modifications to shield skill behaviors
    • Shields now take significantly more damage in PvP.
    • Shields now irresistibly disorient their user when broken.

    • New Behavior: While you have bonus armor, gain 1 stack each second up to a max of 7. Each stack increases total weapon damage by 5% to enemies within 10m.
    • All stacks are lost when you have no bonus armor.
    • Perfect Version: Increase max stacks to 8
    • PvP: 4% weapon damage per stack instead of 5

 

GAMEPLAY ADJUSTMENTS

Updated 31.03.22 16:56 CET*

  • Added a disorienting effect to players when their shield breaks  .
  • Updated Intimidate and Perfect Intimidate so that there is a ramp-up to their effectiveness .
  • Omit shields from the effects of the In-Sync talent .
  • Increased the PvP damage to shield .
  • Repair Traps now heal allies for the proper amount .

Design Notes: 

Shield skills have been unbalanced for quite some time and have grown to be a dominant build tactic in both PvE and PvP. Combined with In-Sync, shields provide an unparalleled, no-downsides DPS boost.

In addition, Intimidate when combined with various methods of gaining short-term bonus armor. This made it deeply unfair in ambush situations in PvP and led to an undesirable PvE meta as well. As such, Intimidate now requires a slow buildup before reaching maximum effectiveness.
