  • Re: [Test Center] Test Center Status (5/23)

    @Yseviel said:
    Could we get a data refresh please? The pull is from early March.

    Indeed!

    Test Center is currently offline for this purpose of refreshing player data. Test Center will remain offline until tomorrow, when a new build is be deployed for additional testing.

  • [Test Center] Test Center Status (5/23)

    Hey folks,

    Test Center has been updated with a new build today that contains some of the preliminary changes for our upcoming Anniversary patch.

    Later this week once we're a bit closer to the Anniversary patch, we'll update Test Center with some of the new Anniversary related features, but for now we wanted to open Test Center to make available some of the upcoming Hero changes and other bug fixes that will be going live with the Anniversary patch.

    As always, thank you for participating in Test Center!

  • Re: Can BIG 10 Boxes Have A Big Ol' Off Screen Indicator?

    Definitely a reasonable request - @Winterthur is on the case.

  • [Test Center] Nick Fury Changes

    Hey folks,

    One set of changes that we know folks have been waiting patiently for have been Nick Fury balance changes.

    Some additional tuning and gameplay changes will be going out with the Anniversary patch for Nick Fury, and these changes are available in Test Center now for testing & feedback.

    Per patch notes, here are the following changes currently on Test Center:


    Nick Fury now has charges on several powers that used to cost ammo. Powers affected:

    • Fresh Clips now restores charges of the following powers: Fire in the Hole! (and its close quarters remap), Target Down, Molecular Destabilization Grenade, Fire and Forget, End it. All of these powers have also had their cooldowns and Ammo costs removed.

    • Fire in the Hole! & Heads Down have 1 charge each by default.

    • Fire and Forget has 1 charge.

    • Molecular Destabilization Grenade has 1 charge.

    • End It has 1 charge.

    • Target Down has 1 charge, which is restored if this power defeats a target.

    • The Bandolier Talent adds +1 charges to Molecular Destabilization Grenade, Heads Down & Fire in the Hole!.

    • Blitz still refreshes all cooldown powers when you use your signature, re-enabling your Fresh Clips power and allowing you to gain back all charges on other powers.

    • All Fireteam summons have had their durations extended by 50%.

    • Damage increased for the following powers:

      • Heads Down
      • Fire in the Hole!
      • Target Down
      • Molecular Destabilization Grenade
      • Fire and Forget
    • Let ‘Em Have It’s cooldown will now properly scale down at higher ranks.

    • Fixed an issue where Eyes Everywhere was not resetting the cooldown of Lola On Loan with Blitz active.


    Please use this thread for any feedback or bug reports related to the Nick Fury changes in today's Test Center.

    Thanks!
