    From Battle Bay with Love!

    With this update we focused a lot on overall quality of life improvements. Guild questing is very popular so we increased the level of awesome! We’ve also added various fleeting enhancements to make it even easier to jump into battle with your guild mates and friends. Enjoy and leave us comments with your thoughts!

    New
    • Added several new achievements, including weapon specific achievements with full legendaries as reward!
    • Added private chatting and fleeting with guild mates without first adding them as friends.
    • Added online status indicators for guild members.
    • Added a "looking for a fleet" feature where you can ask any guild mate to fleet with you.
    • Added number of online guild members in guild chat.
    • Added a toggle to select which guild boosters are used.
    • Added a fleeting indicator to friends and guild members to show if they're already in a fleet with someone else.
    • Added showing drop chances to boxes.
    • Added automatic vertical shot leading to auto-aim.
    • Added camera turning sensitivity slider to control options.
    • Added a confirmation dialog to special offers that are bought with pearls.
    • Added a way to copy a link to a battle replay to the clipboard.
    Guild quests
    • Changed guild rivalry matchmaking to match guilds that are similarly active.
    • Changed guild quest boards to generate the same quest boards for every guild in the rivalry. - active once you cleared your current board!
    • Changed guild quest trophy counts to scale with quest requirements.
    • Removed fleeting requirement from all guild quests.
    • Added a fleeting bonus to all guild quests. - active immediately
    • Quests that require a specific weapon or ship now get partial contribution from any weapon or ship. Instead of requiring specific weapon/ship there is a boost given when using matching weapon/ship. Some quest requirements have been scaled up to account for this to keep the difficulty level the same.
    • Added new weapon category quests (Cannons, Mortars, etc).
    Improvements
    • Wayward Pains roof has been changed to be more open, allowing easier mortar usage.
    • Improved tips in matchmaking/loading screen with illustrations and added more tips.
    • Show subscription terms during the purchase flow to make it clearer that the user is purchasing a recurring subscription.
    • Items bought from the item list now count towards the Shopper achievement.
    • Improved accuracy of ship movement lag compensation, reduces mispredicted shot hits.
    • Improved accuracy of projectile collision lag compensation, reduces mispredicted shot hits.
    Balancing, combat
    • Fixed Tesla Bolt heal blocking talent to actually block all incoming healing.
    • Increased Tesla Bolt cooldown from 13.3s to 20.0s.
    • Changed Fire Bomb falloff to affect the duration instead of damage.
    • Reduced Explosive Cannon range from 25 to 22.
    • Increased Explosive Cannon cooldown from 12.22s to 14.44s.
    Balancing, economy
    • Changed required contribution thresholds for stars to make it easier to gain them.
    • Improved season rewards for Nightmare league to make them always better than Ace league rewards.
    Fixes
    • Fixed friends list sometimes being empty after coming back from a battle.
    • Fixed correct battle end music after win/lose by capturing.
    • Fixed Nightmare league infamy reset not always working properly.
    • Fixed forced name change costing pearls if free name change was already used.
    • Fixed weapon damage quests (solo/guild) erroneously counting full hit damage instead of the remaining health when a ship was destroyed.
    • Fixed tips in matchmaking screen persisting on screen if exiting matchmaking screen through any other way than back button.
    • Fixed loading into hub sometimes taking longer than necessary.
    • Fixed invisible/non-functioning torpedoes caused by client side collisions with floating objects not always matching with the server.
    • Fixed guild raffle adding guild tokens and pearls before the raffle spin animation finished playing.
    • Fixed arena start countdown and the clock not being in perfect sync.
    • Fixed notification icon being erroneously shown on quests button when a new guild rivalry begins.
    • Fixed friends showing briefly as offline when they were moving into battle.

    Hooray, just what I wanted for Fire Bomb. The XCannon nerf is a nice bonus.

    Guess everyone will switch to blast cannon, even if it conflicts with sniper talents. The 18% dps nerf and lower range kills it off. Guess tesla bolt users will be pretty unhappy, full tesla shields will rule now.

    So balances made were to increase cool down for both, and reduce range on ex. cannon.
    You are requesting cool down to be reduced, and to increase range on the ex cannon?
    So you want them to stay as they are now in other words :D

    Sniper will be much more popular on speeder i guess, get ready to be hit from across the map and you cant hit back since your EC is on cool down and dont even has the range to reach them
