13 January Update

This caught my attention in the official post: here

"The owner of a Campaign will now have a reserved slot in the case of co-op enabled encounters."

In short, this means no longer can someone die and let 2 others take over their campaign to get the bonus points..  Some will cheer, others will rage, we will see..


Summary of changes:

  • Reaver Return items have lost some armor,  hopefully this isn't matched with increased defense...
  • Reavers have 3 variations of the hellhound hull we will need to contend with..
  • New NPC Variant of the thrower weapon for the hellhound..
  • Text for the campaigns is down below if you're interested.
  • More badges for those who crave recognition... 
  • Final stats for the new gear!   Hellhound is the same,   Magma thrower got up in time/cost,  and slight reduction in damage..... Links live to the database now.

    1. If they dont change the range back wont even try to get the new stuff

      Delete
    2. The unfortunate side-effect of early information... Perhaps next time i'll leave build times/costs off of pre-release info..

      Delete
    3. Which is always the problem with early info. Would it have changed had it not been posted and bpprof hadn't put out the comparison of how it stacked up against others? No idea.

      After 3+years I've found it is always better to get the new weapon than not. Something either comes along to help make it better, or there are hidden bonuses we didn't know to take into account.

      There have been some that have never been used that I've won, but in the end, still worth getting them whenever you can as they'll come in useful sooner or later!

    4. I mean why in the hell are Kixeye this Evil they are all devils i hope some good proggramer changes it back ......... xnih if there is something that will make it better it will be so expensive and the build time ...............they really bummed me whit the dmg reduction and range i dont mine the build time .Guess they readed my build and tought its too op and punished me us and me

      Delete
    5. Possibly their way to punish us with semi invalid data. Even with that said, we've seen them change stats on some things down the road after people already won prizes, so changes before they actually come out, should be of no real surprise. Though I was drooling a bit over what these may mean long term. We'll see how they stack up now.

    6. Yeah i just hope this is an big troll to the comunity before they release the originals damage weight and build time whit the reaver npc range as the price :P

      Delete
  2. Range of 68 makes this weapon a non-starter, unless, like cannons & missiles, there is some sort of special that will increase the range.
    Either way pls continue to post data. What kix does is on them.

    1. We saw and are saddened for those that lost their jobs.. Seems like many want to take them up so that's at least good.

      I posted the link to this on BPN, there is a larger discussion going on there.
