Balance Patch 3714

Hello Commanders,

Today we release a new balance patch, patch 3714. Patchnotes can be found here: https://content.faforever.com/patchnotes/3714.html

This patch aims to improve the options of Aeon specifically as they have become one of the least played factions. The Czar will now have a personal shield to protect it, and much stronger AA weapons. The Harbinger also gets a quite substantial buff and the Specter gets a new weapon.

There are many changes to the other factions as well, especially at the Tech 2 land and Tech 3 land stages. Open the patchnotes to read through all the changes and see small explanations for each of the changes.

A big thanks goes to the other members of the balance team and all the players who gave suggestions and feedback on the forums and elsewhere on FAF.

Feedback on the patch can be submitted in this thread

Thank you for you time,
JaggedAppliance

Balance Patch 3622 : Testing !

We’ve entered the next phase of the patch process : The testing.

During 25 days, we will put the proposals to the test.

Sometimes we will test “bad” changes to be sure they are bad, sometimes we will remove “good” changes because they are not so good.

No change is “safe”, even a 90% popular change can be removed if proven bad.
On the contrary, you can ask to test a (proposed) change for a day or two and post some replays proving it’s actually a good idea.

But this is only possible if you are part of the testing and give feedback from your games !
Remember that it is probably your chance to be heard until the next patch period (in three months).

The thread to give feedback is here : https://direct.faforever.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=52&t=3205

The full logs are always available here : https://bitbucket.org/thepilot/forged-alliance-forever-lua/commits/all (you can click on the numbers to see a complete description).

You can test the mod in the featured mod list : “Balance Testing”.
