Good day citizens of Super Earth. A new patch to aid you in your efforts is coming in. May Super Earth give you courage

Overview
Today's patch is dealing with the spawn rate of heavily armored Terminid enemies as well as the possible play against them. It also contains some fixes to UI elements and crash fixes.

Balancing
Enemies:
  • The amount of heavily armored targets that spawn on higher difficulties, especially for Terminids, have been a big discussion point online and internally. The intent is for groups to have to bring some form of anti-tank capability but not to the degree previously needed.
  • To that end we have reduced the spawn rate of Chargers and Bile Titans on difficulties 7 and up. In addition we have reduced the risk of spawn spikes of Chargers and Bile Titans.
  • Please note that we have changed the distribution of enemy types, not reduced difficulty. Expect other enemy types to...

I haven't deleted anything, it's all there to see.

That was me.

I went a little far with the trolling, but what I said is said.

I'm sorry if people took offence to it, I'm not going to engage with the community anymore, since as many people have pointed out; we have a community team that should handle that. I figured I'd have a little fun with the players, but I realize being a dev I'm in an unfair position.

Maybe this isn't going to mend anything with you, but atleast I feel I should own up to it and apologize. I'm sorry.

Unsafe mode is great, but when you have a BT and 3 chargers and hunters in your butt that you're trying to dodge, an explosion becomes way too likely

The way to stop things being auto picks was to make everything else way more appealing... plus the shield was nessecary due to the armour issue

There shouldn't be any more need for more nerfs with the primaries as far as I'm concerned.

So does that not tell you that the other primaries simply aren't good enough given that's what most people have said?

Energy shield gets his through by the small hunters constantly and the railgun is the only thing that let's you continue moving while being chased by multiple bile Titans and chargers that never run out of stamina.. recoiless etc. Simply are not viable because you can't reload, you will just get knocked over constantly unfortunately

We will see what happens, our first priority was bringing things in line. Then we can see if things needs to come up in general. People are still successful on helldive even with other weapons, it is just a lot easier with the mentioned items. I currently worry a little about the flamer and orbitals being overbuffed, but we will see.
Overall we're not so worried about stratagems being strong, it's just that the railgun and energy shield really didn't have a downside, so the other stratagems just pale in comparison. The railgun can still do mostly the same as before, but only on unsafe mode. And the shield will save you from one big hit and some small hits, but it won't start recovering immediately. So they should still be good, we just hope they stop being autopicks.
