Balance patch

Lotus_MoonLotus_Moon Registered Users Posts: 11,811
Just wondering if people would like to see one last balance patch for game 2 or just let it phase out until game 3 happens.

There could be a 3 to 6 months wait before game 3 is out and while the game is in the best shape it has been (after cav beta live), there are some things that could use adjustments, i do wonder if the interest is there or not really

I do think Major changes should be avoided and most changes should be cost focused with some exceptions where cost adjustments are not ideal anwser.

    Did they? Im not too certain that its locked in stone that it won't happen, i think expecting a rebalance change with stat changes might not be possible, but cost adjustment patch might happen. If not than its ok i can start work on my mod.

    I'm fine leaving balance as-is. I suppose if they want to test features for Warhammer 3, it might be a good way to do that, but I'm not too concerned about balance at this point.

    That said, I do want to see some critical bugs fixed. Ambush is utterly broken and I think it's unprofessional to just leave it that way and move on.

    The last patch was entirely underwhelming considering how long it took and that there was clear low lying bugs available to patch presented and demonstrated by modders

    agreed. I dont think its too much to ask for 1 last patch to a game that lasted 5? years. It deserves to not end in such a poorly balanced state.

    No way CA does another patch. I'm honestly shocked they spent resources and time into fixing the cav bugs.

    The gate bug still exists BTW and always will. I bet it'll even carry over and ruin sieges in TWW3.

    I do hope there be a final patch as i feel game 3 is gonna fail or struggle for a while and not just due to my dislike for reinforcement but thus far nothing i seen is i consider an improvement to game 2 in terms of balance or visuals or interface, i go as far as say its a downgrade, the only thing i feel might be saving grace is their focus on MP, i refrain from elaborating as its becoming more of a rant.

    Tbh I rather we have one last major bugfix patch

    If it’s to fix bugs than yes also would be nice if game 2 wasn’t left in a sad state my cpu probably won’t run TWH3 since they aren’t great about making optimal lower settings for the series.

    what should the patch contain though? can we even agree on what it should be?

    I'd say
    LM needs a small nerf (125 points) aimed at their anti ranged suite, but without taking too much away from their melee power, something like nerfing missile resist on key units fx, and cost nerf of shielded sauri.
    HE, TK, EM need a small buff (125 points), TK and EM to midtier infantry, HE...maybe their archers and SOA?
    and NO and VP need a medium buff (250 points) - for VP specifically aimed at melee units

    And BRE needs a recalibration away from fay/pala/QK to other units (or for the special stance to offer something like ogre antiCD)

    The only thing they should be focusing on with another patch is fixing the ambush AI in campaign.

    thats more of a bugfix patch? would defo be nice to get that, and much easier to agree on.

    My point was that a FINAL balance patch should only contain really obvious and tested changes with broad support. Im not even sure we can agree on what factions let alone what units should be rebalanced.
    Id rather stick with the game as is than a haphazard balance patch.

    I just want combat & campaign bugs fixed that’s it.
