The Pirate's Nightmare Redux

Nightwraith | Friday, October 12, 2018

Earlier this week, fearless warriors all over Delta V were able to challenge Nightmare Kartherax at long last! Now, they'll be able to explore the Nightmare and uncover its mysteries in this content-rich release with 30 new missions!

 

General Changes:

The following changes are designed to address some of the imbalances with players in the high 30s matching with high rank Legendary players. Additional changes to mission tracking will allow Juggernaut victories to count toward 2v2 missions.

  • Tighter matching at high levels for 1v1
  • 38s and 39s should encounter high rank Legends less often.
  • Level difference weighted higher when calculating first strike:
    • New formula --> First Strike Chance = (50 + ((My Team’s Support - Enemy Team’s Support) * 1.5) - ((My Team’s Level - Enemy Team’s Level) * 10)) * (My Support / (My Team’s Support * Team Size))
  • Juggernaut victories will count towards 2v2 missions
  • Promotional Package Phantasm Droids now properly tagged as seasonal rares.

 

Balance

  • Legendary Stat Buff:
    • Sidearm Damage: 3 → 4 per point
    • Auxiliary Damage: 3 → 4 per point
    • Robot Damage: 3 → 4 per point

 

Achievements

We're releasing 2 new achievements, including a new upgradeable achievement!

  • HalloWarrior 2. This will replace the HalloWarrior achievement after this year. The original HalloWarrior achievement will go rare after this season!
  • Upgradeable Achievement: Pumpkin Seed. Can you afford to become a Pumpkin God?
