Bug Fixes & Improvements

The following bug fixes and improvements are now live:

  • Based on player feedback we have capped the max Player level at 96.
  • Air Raid / Slipstream we fixed an issue with their ability level 11 that caused targets not to receive the Fusion effect if they were protected from EMP.
  • We’ve fixed Barricade’s power values from level 62 to 65.
  • Huffer and Lockdown’s Mini Lasers cannot target stealth bots anymore.
  • We fixed Firedrive and Blowpipe’s sound effect.
  • Mirage & Breakdown ability damage now increases with each level from 1 to 11
  • We have made some improvements to Inspiring Charge. When triggered twice, the ability will lead the bots under its influence to a second target even if the first target is not destroyed.
