Last week Thursday I announced that the game team issued the following balance change:
“Pals and offense beasts will become slightly stronger on low and mid player levels.”
With this change, some players noticed that Ceres moral changed from 15 to 16 also in high player levels.
This was due to the following game systematic:
There is a scaling factor for the balancing values of the Pals that is based on the Hero Level. We call it “Pal Power”. That means that Pals grow more powerful when the player reaches a higher Hero-level. We slightly increased the “Pal Power” for the Hero Levels 50-130 with the server update 30.08.2018. For example for Level 130 “Pal power” was increased from 1,06 to 1,09. This 3% change led to the moral change from 15 to 16.
To be completely honest the Ceres moral change slipped the grid because the pal power factor change was so low. It was not intended. Hence, it was also not communicated. Thus, we have to closely monitor this specific Ceres buff for now.
Furthermore, we scaled the power of the Beasts. The power of the Beast is dependent on the level of the Beast as well as the Hero-Level of the player that owns the defense. The scaling factor for Beasts was reduced between Hero-levels 50-100. (e.g. the scaling factor for Hero Level 80 now is 0,4 instead of 0,45). We believe this change comes towards mid-level players finding the beast too difficult.
Lastly, the factor for the offensive beast increased from 62% of the power of the defensive beast to 67%.
We apologize for the incomplete communication. This was not intended and not our wish. We try our best to avoid such mistakes in the future.
