Event Rework: Play with Event
Introducing, Ladies' Fight with Piper Reese:
With the 1.9.3, we are going to introduce a brand new way to play 'Play with Event'! Let's dig deep into it! You can expect more theme based event to come in the future!
How does it work?
As it is Ladies' Fight, players will be able to play with female characters only. There are no tickets for battles.
Players have three "lives" to win X times. After three defeats, players will be able to restart from the beginning for only 5 gems (free if they have a battle pass).
Players will play on the Evil-Bridges map.
Whether lost or won, players will get the same currency amount.
Crushing defeat (3 stars against the player) gives none.
Crushing victory (3 stars for you) gives twice the amount.
In case of victory, players will progress by one in the event.
All characters will start at level 1.
Players will be matched with other players playing the same event, with the same progression.
Players won't play against bots.
Players will be able to earn twice the amont after every battle by buying a dedicated one time offer in the shop.
To reshuffle one character from a female-only pool.
To level up a character slot one level each time the cost is paid.
Upgrade is immediate (it applies to the character without having to reshuffle).
Reshuffled characters remain upgraded (since it is the slot which is upgraded).
Upgrade has a cap (level 10).
After reaching the cap, characters can be upgraded further twice for their frag powers.
With the Ladies' Fight event will also come an exclusive female only chest: The Wonder Chest
The 'Play with Evil Piper' event will remain unchanged.
We are testing rebalancing for the Epic Card event and the Legendary Card event. For the players whom may be affected by the tests: the event should be considerably easier, but you won't be able to use 200 tickets to get a chance to directly unlock the character. Our goal is to give to everyone more enjoyable events, based on the gameplay.
To know more about the upcoming "Play with Evil Piper", "Ladies' Fight with Piper Reese" and "Frag Power" events, check the next Frag Memo!
For the 1st time, both characters will be available in the Season Pass: Evil Piper at stage 36 and Piper Reese at stage 60
Volume 2: Season 14 STARTS on Nov 4th 2021 (at noon UTC)
Note: Evil Piper and Piper Reese will not be available in chests as long as you do not unlock them through events or battle pass, even at the end of the season.
Chests and Rewards:
With the 1.9.3 update we also decided to increase the value of the free chest in the shop menu and we increased the unlock time skipped for chest by watching an Ad from 20 minutes to 3 hours. Limited to two uses per day, this won't apply to events. (might change in the future)
Starting from 08/11/2021, some players will be randomly selected to play with a new balancing system! Selected players will be only matched against other selected players. If you feel like your characters are different from what they were yesterday, then don't worry because they are. Please note that sadly, this won't apply to club friendly matches. This is the first step to character re-balancing due to all of your feedback! Thanks! We will keep you posted on any future changes.
Frag Power Events:
Community milestone rewards will be readjusted as follows
Play Wuth Evil Piper event:
Players will have to be at least level 8 to participate in the next 'Play With Evil Piper' event
New Map - Evil-Bridges
Evil Piper corrupted the original Frag map with her darkness and hatred. Fortunately, Piper Reese is here to fight her doppelganger and bring balance to the world! Whose side are you on?!
"We are not too happy about synergies with their current design, this is why we will stop introducing new synergies for the new characters. Piper and Evil Piper won't have synergies. The already existing synergies will remain until further notice. You can expect new synergies to come in a more organic way in the future" - Guillaume, Product Manager
Vandal's abilities compared to other heroes in Arena 4 were proving to be too difficult to use for too little effect. The idea is to strengthen her abilitiy and to make it easier to use. We also wanted to make Vandal a stronger character overall.
Spray Gun → Spray Gun damage increased by 14%. → Spray Gun now applies a 5% slow.
Paint Bomb → Splash zone increased by 50%. → Slow increased by 20%. → It should now be easier to score hits.
Cipher is a very versatile hero who previously excelled in too many areas. With the previous nerfs he became very average in everything. It was decided to specialize his ability and strengthen it on slowing effects. In addition, Cipher had become too fragile compared to other heroes, we wanted to make Cipher a strong option once again.
General → Level 1 Health Points Increased from 132 to 152.
Hack Wave → Radius increased by 15%. → Slow increased by 25%.
Nautica was too weak and difficult to play for an Arena 8 Legendary. The first issue with her ability was the very small angle of use that made it very frustrating to use. We made the decision to remove this targeting and instead use the main weapon as a marker. From now on Nautica will be able to mark up to 3 targets at the same time for 8s and launch her leviathan at every targeted enemy. In addition to that, the speed and fire rate her Trident has been increased to facilitate its use and targeting. On the other hand, her damage has been reduced a bit to avoid Nautica becoming too strong.
General → Level 1 Health Points Increased from 110 to 130.
Tech-Trident → Increase fire rate by 15%. → Trident projectile speed increased by 37%. → Trident projectile damage decrease by 5%. → Now mark enemies touched for 8s.
Go Leviathan!! → Is now launched on every marked target (maximum 3).
Mr Tiger (Buff)
Mr Tiger should excel in close combat with his Double 25k. Moreover his ability was quite hard to use because of the animation delay. In order to make it easier and more effective, the delay between the launch and the moment when the bombs explode has been reduced, and the explosion area has been increased as well as the damage.
Double 24k → Close damages increased by 30%.
Chopper Call → Explosion radius increased by 20%. → Damage increased by 18%. → Animation delay decreased by 14%.
Wave had far too much HP compared to his speed and hitbox. The DJ Beam is too powerful and has no drawbacks so we wanted to compensate that. Wave's ability is also far too powerful for the number of times he can use it.
General → Level 1 Health Points decreased from 215 to 195.
DJ Beam → Decrease short range damages by 13%. → Increase long range damages by 41%.
Sound Blaster → Cooldown increased from 15 to 20s. → 1.9.4: Range is now limited to 20m.
DolB is supposed to be a defensive hero, but his LaserTune was too powerful and sometimes allowed him to get too far into the arena, making him a must pick character.
As for his ability, it was far too powerful despite the situational use and DolB was very frustrating to play against.
LaserTune → Correction on main gun which should adjust the range to 30 in every situations. → Decrease main gun damages by 13%.
Bunker Beats → Ability cooldown increased from 16s from 20s.
