Power Changes
  • Toggling on Micro Munitions/Fire All Weapons now prevents the use of Chest Beam. This was done to address a bug where chest beam was not always disabling other chest slot items.
  • Fixed a bug where Chest Beam's cost was not increasing when using other power armor abilities alongside it.


Events
  • Added Windupkey and Glowing White auras to the winter store.
  • Added Claw Jagged, Daring Belts and Daring Visor costumes to the Nighthawk store. Daring items are currently male only.


Queues
  • Added a confirm button when queuing for pvp matches.
  • We made some additional changes to pvp queues that will hopefully prevent kicking.

    The change to Chest Beam is also a bit unfair just cause there aren't many Chest slot options to use offensively to begin with (2, really). If its more meant to be a choice between using one chest slot or the other, then the only 2 dps options are still quite different in their dps and eps, so transitioning between them isn't really seamless even in that light.

    It'd also be nice for Chest Beam's tooltip to be updated to clarify that its debuff is now called Burn Through, which it shares w/ Minigun's adv.

    Can I request the Jagged Claw bracers also have Psi/Holo Textures?


    Also why the changes to Power Armor, really. DPS power armor already suffers from it's own squishy, why are we disfavoring it further?

    Devs really enjoy nerf batting PA lately. I agree that they should make some compensation for these changes.

    I'd hate to think that "bugs" are just some excuse for change.

    Someone REALLY hates power armour

    The Chest Beam change was uncalled for, now the PA Slots are gonna Jam by it's own powers

    You are just NERFING PA at this point without Buffing, JUST because PA DPS has potential for End Game (GOD forbid if we can manage to archieve DINO's DPS Check) with the right geared build

    This is Disgusting​​

    I stopped playing PA long ago because the required ninjitsu to get it all working together in a non tedious way was f*&^ing absurd. The damage was the only compensation. Now I will probably just respec my PA toon into something non-idiotic.

    They need to take that set back to the drawing board to get to function in a way they find acceptible in our new balance paradigm while not making it a slog of absolute &*(^ to play.

    OR, just hear me out here....JUST leave things as is.

    They clearly have no foresight on what the heck they are doing and they patch/fix/break things as they move along. Those changes to PA are basically trial and error. As I said, currently they due to the changes to Sniper gloves, PB and MG I have lost between 30-35% dmg on my PA toon which for all intents and purposes costed around 6kG to make (not counting the time it took to farm 5k Villain tokens).

    Maybe going back to the drawing board for a complete overhaul is exactly what PA needs. If you (generic you, not the person I quoted specifically) examine the recent "nerfs" to PA objectively, many of them are really just fixes for bugs or design oversights. If these fixes are somehow breaking the set, then the set was broken all along.

    In the meantime though, until PA gets some sort of overhaul, the toggle "fix" to chest beam should probably be reverted. It may be a bugfix, so I get why it was done, but it's a crude one that is going to do more harm to the set than good.
