4. Adjustments to Chromatic Ball and Lucky Ball
Season 1 Premium Balls are retired when Season 2 starts, all rewards except "Skylark: Fiery Lotus" are added to Chromatic Ball (and partially in Lucky Ball). The chance for SS- and S-level rewards in Chromatic Ball remains at 5%.
The prize pools for both Chromatic Ball and Lucky Ball also underwent following changes:
A. Removed a lot of Trial Card-type items;
B. Removed some appearance items available in the Store.
GAME BALANCE MODIFICATIONS
Fans of Skylark are enamored with its firing ability on the move, but not so much with its rather mundane damage output and survivability. Therefore, we made the following change:
A. Increased Stab's damage vs. mecha for from 80 to 86.
Because Hotsteel's mobility and missile velocity are subpar, it lacks effective counters in non-melee combat. To improve its overall combat capability, we made the following changes:
A. Decreased cooldown for Explosive Charge from 13s to 11s.
B. Decreased fuel cost for Rocket Propulsion from 20/s to 15/s.
C. Increased velocity for Tornado Missile from 92m/s to 104m/s.
Firefox is a fire-suppression mecha, but the current version of Firefox is still unable to gain advantage in a straight-up firefight. To improve Firefox's damage output, we made the following changes:
A. Increased Firestorm MG’s damage vs. mecha from 48 to 51.
B. Appropriately decreased the spread for Firestorm MG.
Andromeda's Turbojet defense module provided too much mobility boost. To balance the module, we made the following change:
A. Decreased cooldown bonus to Swift Dodge provided by the module from 1s/2s/3s to 0.5s/1s/1.5s.
1. Due to the popular feedback and support, Team Deathmatch is now available from 12pm to 12am (local time) on all servers.
2. Coupons are more useful now. Players can use coupon when spending Crystal for most pilot or mecha appearances.
3. Added some mecha and pilot appearances to the updated Monthly Pass Store.
4. Display for pilot accessories is now available on Ranks and Main Page.
5. New Alpha Night event. Complete themed events and get Battle Pass Points.
ADJUSTMENTS & OPTIMIZATIONS
1. Improved clan member display and rules for saving chat logs.
2. The server will save all recent chats in General Chat.
3. Fixed the issue of new patches possibly blacking out the screen and improved the authorizing procedure for push notifications.
4. The Battle Royale Duo Mode in Rating Rankings ends in the new season.
