    that last image coming soon looks like some guild war mode. like a passive guild vs guild attacking a region control? just a guess.

    one question.will there be again a higher chance of badge crafting event like the ones we had before or this change will delete that event?

    @donald6283 I believe that event will stay, it will only be adjusted since the new update.

    Don't know for sure though, that's what I think.

    i not so sure because with the new balance change we have a chance to get a leg badge even from uncommon components...what adjustment can the event bring better than that?guaranteed epic badge?! lol...that would be nice though

    sounds good :)
  • bladgierbladgier Member Posts: 2,127
    @donald6283 I know, it's not that.

    Something like significantly increased drops, since default drops will be nerfed.

    "Warrior Charge Attacks
    To match their bravery and fearlessness, the base chance that the warrior's Bonus Attack results in a Critical hit has been doubled to 20%. As always, Luck and other Traits and Badges can add to this chance."

    This is my favorite part lolol

    20% still = 0% on a body shot, sooo...

    Ahem, still on the bench, nothing to see here ;-)

    @ATLAS-Z

    Charged attacks are guaranteed no bodyshots with warriors. The 1st swipe.

    And on top of that, any luck you have adds up too. No multiplication. So if you have 2x luck weapon and survivor each 20% then:
    20% base critical + 40% from 2x luck, that's 60% critical chance without any badges and other traits.
    I think that's pretty good.

    @bladgier, is that a fact that warriors' first attack on a charge attack is guaranteed no body shot??? If so, I've never known that. And it gives me somewhere to put all those formerly useless crit chance badges :)

    Almost enough to get them off the bench... Almost.

    I'm curious to see what further buffs warriors get next update. Intrigued.

    Nothing Nerfed? (Besides component drop rates)

    That can't be right... I gonna take a closer look.

    Are you sure about that? I always thought if you had 20% chance with 40% luck that'd be... 20% + 20%(40%) = 28%

    @Kaz can you confirm which is correct?

    I've got two guesses for the symbol, first is the return of deadly missions? The second is a real time PVP mode. Maybe taking a random map and putting a flag in the middle two teams either side, first to get the flag and back to their side alive wins.
  • ATLAS-ZATLAS-Z Member Posts: 4,840
    @Deadheads as I understand it, you are correct for all other things except crit chance, which adds directly instead of a multiplier

    @Kaz

    It's almost worth a "Wayne's World We're not worthy" prostrate before Alive Cooper moment, but alas, I honestly feel we are!

    Instead, I'm gonna settle for this;

    Ooooo @Movado I like the way you think.

    Guild interaction = good

    More ways to do this = better

    Teamwork makes the dream... Work? Haha

    Glenn's buff is a Joke
    they say "This should be a boost for players in the early-to-mid game"
    but only buffing pink star and above
    which early-player has a pink star Glenn???

    Yes I am 100% sure about that. Luck and critical chance is all addition.
