  129.  
  130. Fleet Battles Balance Changes
  131. Tywom
  132.  
  133.     Despite being the first ship players get access to in the Adventure Mode, it’s incredibly powerful and one of the best. The incredibly rapid fire rate of the main gun made it too good at bursting enemy ships down. In particular, the Spawn Turret mechanic could be quite exploitative and anti-fun by encouraging the player to avoid the enemy spawning turrets and never engaging directly. These changes will make the Tywom play more actively and make it feel like more of a starter ship.
  134.     Tywom Bolt cooldown increased from 1.5 to 2.25
  135.     Turret duration reduced from 30 to 15
  136.     Max turrets reduced from 5 to 3
  137.     Points reduced from 12 to 10
  138.  
  139. Greegrox Swarm
  140.  
  141.     The Greegrox was far too difficult to hit with projectiles due to the tiny Collision box combined with instant direction changing. These changes will make the Greegrox easier to hit.
  142.     Collision box increased from 0.25 to 0.30
  143.     Acceleration reduced from 18 to 12
  144.     Points reduced from 12 to 10
  145.  
  146. Measured Response
  147.  
  148.     The Measured Response could be very frustrating to play against due to the permanent slows and difficulty to hit due to high acceleration, small hitbox and instant direction changes. It will be easier to hit and its weapons are getting toned down to justify its 7 points cost.
  149.     Red Tape now only temporarily slows instead of permanent slows
  150.     Acceleration reduced from 20 to 14
  151.     Invitation damage reduced from 10 to 8
  152.  
  153. Terran Cruiser
  154.  
  155.     The Earthling Cruiser was too fragile and too clunky too control. These changes will make the Terran Cruiser stronger and more fun to play
  156.     Health increased from 19 to 24Turn rate increased from 75 to 85
  157.  
  158. Lexite Interceptor
  159.  
  160.     The Lexite Interceptor was far too strong to justify its low 9 point cost.
  161.     Points increased from 9 to 11
  162.  
  163. Trandals Frigate
  164.  
  165.     The raw power of the Trandal Weapon was too much, especially when combined with its massive mobility allowing it to flank enemy ships or pickup all the salvage easily.
  166.     Laser Ribbon Bola damage per second reduced from 150 to 110
  167.  
  168. Scryve Probe
  169.  
  170.     Like the Tywom Bolt, the Scout Shot was able to burst targets down far too quickly despite also having the dangerous self-destruct.
  171.     Scout Shot damage reduced from 6 to 5
  172.     Scout shot cooldown increased from 1.5 to 2.25
  173.     This is intended to also affect other ships using Scout Shot.
  174.  
  175. Drenkend Carrier
  176.  
  177.     The Drenkend Carrier was too strong to justify 12 points. The De-energizer Bolt could be quite exploitative due to it’s rapid-fire and low energy cost, which could permanent chain stun targets.
  178.     Points increased from 12 to 16
  179.     De-energizer Bolt energy cost increased from 5 to 10
  180.     De-energizer bolt cooldown increased from 0.4 to 0.8
  181.  
  182. Xraki Devourer
  183.  
  184.     The Xraki Devourer was too strong at 12 points. The long range and massive energy pool encouraged the ship to avoid the enemy and fly away poking long range black holes, which also were deadly at close range. Lowering the range of the Black Hole projectile will force the Xraki ship to approach the enemy more.
  185.     Points increased from 12 to 14
  186.     Energy cost reduced from 100 to 85
  187.     Black hole duration reduced from 5 to 2.5
  188.  
  189. Menkmack Negotiator
  190.  
  191.     The Menkmack Negotiator was too weak for 12 points.
  192.     Points cost reduced from 12 to 10
  193.  
  194. Phamyst Consumer
  195.  
  196.     Invitation was far too spammable at only 10 energy as it practically had no drain on the Phamyst, given the huge range and lack of required aiming it was too powerful.
  197.     Invitation Energy cost increased from 10 to 20
  198.  
  199. Kzanti Intimidator
  200.  
  201.     The Kzanti ship was frustrating to verse as it was overly nimble and able to knock the enemy away with Repulsor. It will now be slightly less agile and not be able to spam Repulsor on top of planting mines. Especially important as this was one of the first ships the player would encounter in the Adventure Mode.
  202.     Points cost reduced from 13 to 11
  203.     Repulsor energy cost increased from 5 to 10
  204.     Max speed reduced from 6.5 to 6
  205.     Acceleration reduced from 6.75 to 6
