V2.81 Update


Cruiser Speed

2.8's size changes made Cruisers feel slower, but it also made them weaker because as they were clumping less, taking longer for an army of cruisers to get in position and start firing at the enemy. Increasing the speed makes cruisers and army formations more responsive.

  • Increased movement speed of all cruisers by 50% (does not include Engineers)
  • Increased acceleration of cruisers by varying amounts depending on their previous values.


Reaper

Pure reaper spam became a very overpowered strategy. For comparison, mass Archers overkill and don't scale as effectively.

  • Damage reduced from 14 to 12


Tormentor

  • AOE increased from 40 to 60


Zeus

  • Cooldown reduced from 5 to 3 seconds


Avenger

The Avenger is Substrate's primary anti-frigate cruiser, and will be tougher to compensate.

  • Health increased from 180 to 280
  • Shields increased from 500 to 550


Cronus

  • AOE increased from 60 to 100


Hades

The recent Hades rework left it very weak.

  • Metal cost reduced from 220 to 180
  • Radioactives cost reduced from 150 to 130
  • Build time reduced from 40 to 35
  • Logistics reduced from 7 to 6
  • Cooldown reduced from 9 to 6


Basic Tutorial

  • Removed Carving Turret from orbital introduction as it no longer targets frigates and cruisers.
  • Fixed some typos and text errors.
  • Added some extra lines of text to give more information about controls


Campaign

Noctus

  • Map Turinium requirements increased from 500 to 1500


Caletheon

  • Minor tweaks to wave spawns and starting upgrades to compensate for faster Cruisers


Battleline

  • Minor tweaks to wave spawns to compensate for faster Cruisers


Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where drones would not follow the host unit if the drones spawned in combat. (Most noticeable with Hyperion Assault Drones)
