    Helio-Game Portrait
    seeks help from Freebooters, the unsavory scrappers and scavengers who work in the shadows of Atlas. With both Omni and EvoS keen to publicly announce any slip-ups to discredit their new “partner” in Helio Corps, every member of the new trust is under close watch. That's where Freebooters come in: to get whatever you need under the shade – for a hefty reward, of course!

Yarr, we’ve found booty! Season 2, Chapter 4 is open!

Bug Fixes/Performance Improvements

  • Fixed an issue where continue button wasn’t appearing on game end.
  • Improved the performance of the Friends list – particularly for users with a lot of Friends.
  • Graphics should be sharper when using Options: Graphics Quality Medium and High on most PCs with modern graphics cards.
  • Fixed a bug causing some chase paths and last-known-position-indicator positions to not work correctly when the target moves out of vision during Dash phase but gets hit by something mid-dash.

UI Enhancements

  • Overcons were difficult to use in-match (
    #blamejames
    "He's the hero Atlas deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark producer."
    - Mr11
    ), so we’ve added an Overcon button to the HUD!
  • An action can now be canceled by pressing its button again while already locked in for the turn.
  • Alternate VFX now have video previews.
  • Spectators should now see picks and bans in custom games.

Balance

Fill-Game Portrait

General

  • Ignore
    cover
    Cover
    Standing behind cover provides 50% damage reduction from damage coming from the other side of it
    mods now reduce cover effectiveness by half (deal 75% damage through cover instead of 100%)
  • Cover reduction mods give too much value with not enough drawback.
  • Their consistency generally made these mods better than other damage oriented mods, making selection too binary. *We're keeping an eye on the mod cost and will adjust based on their performance.
Brynn-Game Portrait

Brynn

    in a direction for one turn, reducing damage from non-adjacent attacks.

    Gain 4 energy for each attack covered against.
    • Now grants cover against adjacent enemies.
    • Brynn’s job of getting in people’s faces was often at odds with her shield being ineffective in melee range. With this change Brynn can feel good about chasing down those pesky firepowers.
Quark-Game Portrait

Quark

  • ModToken
    Rushing Radiate has been removed
    • It has proven to make Quark too strong at chasing down his enemies. Removing the counterplay of full moving to break Quark’s tether makes disengaging from Quark too difficult and often unfun to play against.
    • A new mod will replace it soon.
