For Honor – Notas del Parche 1.05 [Ingles]

FIGHT

 

Superior Block feedback

  • Warden’s Top Light opener Superior Block visual effect applied on sword.
  • Kensei’s Dodge Forward, Left, Right Superior Block visual effect applied on sword.

Developer comments: Superior Block visual feedback used to be inconsistent across characters. In general we make the weapon or shield flash for the duration of the Superior Block. Some characters like the Warden for instance had their entire body flash, because we were afraid it wouldn’t be visible enough on the sword only for the Top Light opener. However, the full body flash was often mistaken for the Uninterruptible Stance visual effect which is also full body. So we’ve updated the Warden’s feedback to be only on the sword. We did the same for the Kensei’s Dodge.

Valkyrie Moveset

  • Removed Guardbreak Cancel from Shield Tackle Cancel Moveset description.

Developer comments: we’ve removed the ability to cancel Shield Tackle into Guardbreak in a past update. Unfortunately at the time, we couldn’t update the Valkyrie’s Moveset page. It’s done now.

Tutorial

  • Updated Guardbreak Tutorial text for more clarity on Counter Guardbreak.

Developer comments: The Guard Break Interrupt tutorial had a hint saying “Interrupt enemy Guard Breaks by pressing [input] when they start”. The “when they start portion” was confusing people. In order to be more accurate, that text will now change to “when the enemy connects”.

Guardbreak

  • [Bug Fix] Counter Guardbreak ability is no longer affected by the Debuff Gear Stat.

Developer comments: Guard Break can be countered if you press Guard Break within 200ms. The way we’ve handled this mechanic so far caused that time window to shrink if you were using Gear with Debuff Duration Stat. It wasn’t intended, so we’ve updated how this works to guarantee the 200ms Guardbreak Interrupt window regardless of Gear. Guard Break cannot be interrupted if done on a target that is in a Recovery, Dodge or Attack.

Assassins

  • [Bug Fix] Assassins not falling Unbalance when thrown out of stamina is resolved.

Developer comments: Another issue the community picked up on. In some cases, Assassins were able to prevent Unbalance from happening when thrown while out of stamina. It happened because of their specific Guard Switch. When buffered just at the moment they got guard broken, it would bypass the Unbalance. This issue is now resolved.

Revenge

  • [Bug Fix] Revenge activation no longer interruptible by Emotes.

Barracks

  • [Bug Fix] Fixed inverted Kensei Emotes “Wipe Blade” and “Arm and Armed”.

Developer comments: “Wipe Blade” & “Arm and Armed” emote videos and descriptions were inverted. This change will not swap emotes for users but rather fix the menu displaying the wrong info.

FIGHTERS

Nobushi

  • [Bug Fix] Hidden Stance input improvement

Developer comments: There was an issue with the Nobushi’s Hidden Stance input causing the downward angle detection on the right stick not to work consistently with the other Full Block Stances. It’s resolved now, the Hidden Stance input works the same as Full Block Stances.

  • [Bug Fix] Nobushi’s bleed can no longer be applied without hitting target

Developer comments: A bug in the Nobushi’s bleed mechanic caused the bleed to be reapplied without actually hitting the target if you used a specific timing. We’ve managed to fix this and we’ve also looked at all other attacks applying bleed or stun to make sure it didn’t happen on other characters.

Lawbringer

  • [Bug Fix] Using Shove on an enemy about to fall used to change their fall reaction
  • (enemy would land on their feet instead of falling on their back).

Warlord

  • [Bug Fix] Blocking External Attacks while in Full Block Stance now costs stamina

Berserker

  • Heavy Finishers hit areas updated

Developer comments: This addresses the “phantom hit” issue. We’re changing the data of the Heavy Finishers hit areas so that the animation and hit area look more in sync. However, the issue at stake here is more complex. Fixing the hit areas will help with the issue, but we have a more robust fix coming for this in the future that has to do with our targeting rules. Stay tuned for more details in the future.

FEATS

Regenerate

  • Health regeneration only works from Idle
  • Health regeneration set to 12HP per tick (from 10HP)

Developer comments: Regenerate could be exploited by fighting enemies Out of Guard Mode. The Warlord could just release lock, take hits, and the Feat would regenerate his HP without much of a challenge. This is not a behavior we want to encourage. By enabling the HP regeneration only in Idle, Regenerate now is efficient in safe scenarios only, which is more aligned with its intended purpose. We’re also increasing its regeneration rate in order to compensate for the loss of regeneration on hits.

Shield Basher

  • [Bug Fix] Shield Basher functionality will no longer be partially deactivated on death.

GAME MODES

Elimination

  • Boosts are no longer available for pick-up at round start, they now appear 20 seconds after each round starts.
  • The time to pick up a Boost has been increased from 1 second to 2 seconds.

  • Introduced the “Avenger” renown bonus that rewards 15 points (Killing an enemy who has recently killed a team mate within a 10 second timeframe)
  • Changed the “Honor” bonus of 1 vs 1/2/ 3/4 to 15, 20, 25 and 30 points from 10, 15, 20, and 25 points
  • Base respawn time has been reduced from 12 to 10 seconds

PATCH NOTES V1.05.1

HEROES

Peacekeeper

Zone Attack

  • Zone Attack first strike is now set up as a light attack to trigger an interrupt reaction on block.
  • Cancelling a blocked Zone attack while in Revenge will now force an exit of 600ms preventing you from attacking again.
  • [Bug Fix] Zone Attack UI indicator will now correctly start at the beginning of the animation instead of 100ms later.

Developer comments: In its current state, Peacekeeper’s Zone Attack has very low risk and very high reward even on block. Revenge also makes the Peacekeeper nearly unstoppable with the ability to repeat the Zone Attack cancel without Stamina penalty. With these changes the move is still a very good opener but will no longer give you a frame advantage on block. Fixing the UI stance indicator’s timing will also make the Zone Attack feel more consistent with its actual timing of 400ms. It will remain one of the fastest moves in the game but the fact that it is always coming from the same stance makes it manageable.

Sidestep Strike and Riposting Stab

  • Sidestep Strike recovery on Interrupt Block increased to 800ms (from 700ms).
  • Sidestep Strike damage decreased to 15 (from 20).
  • Riposting Stab damage increased to 30 (from 25). Bleed effect remains unchanged.

Developer comments: Blocking Sidestep Strike provides initiative only on a few match ups, so we’re increasing the Regular Block recovery on this attack in order to increase these match ups. Sidestep Strike damage is currently too good compared to Riposting Stab, making Deflect feel too much of a risk compared to basic Dodge. By reducing the damage on Sidestep Strike and increasing the damage on Riposting Stab we hope to restore a more balanced risk / reward between Dodge and Deflect. One last thing about the Peacekeeper, we’re aware of the issues expressed by the community over her Light > Light Spam. Even though we’re not addressing it in this update, we’re currently looking into it so expect changes in the near future.

Warlord

Headbutt

  • Stamina cost increased to 15 (from 12).
  • Dodge window increased by 200ms.
  • Miss Recovery reduced to 700ms (from 800ms).
  • Miss Recovery branching into Attack delayed by 200ms.

Developer comments: Dodging the Headbutt can be quite frustrating so we’re increasing its Dodge window of opportunity to make Dodge more consistent while maintaining its great initiation potential. Increasing the Miss recovery and delaying the branching into Attack will make the Headbutt more punishable depending on how early you Dodge and which punish move you have out of Dodge. We also increased the Headbutt’s Stamina cost a little to punish people who spam it too much.

Full Block Stance

  • Bug Fix] Stamina cost could be doubled in some cases. We’ve fixed it.
  • Can no longer be chained into Headbutt unless an attack has been blocked.

Developer comments: A bug caused the Stamina cost of the Full Block Stance to be applied twice, it’s now fixed. We’ve also removed the option to Headbutt from Full Block Stance idle in order to reduce the amount of options you have to counter from Full Block Stance which is currently very strong. You can still Headbutt out of Full Block Stance after a block. But by removing it from Full Block Stance idle, we want to reduce the Warlord’s ability to interrupt any attempt at attacking him or baiting him while in his Full Block Stance.

Kensei

Helm Splitter

  • Helm Splitter can now chains directly into the Chain Finisher (rather than the 2nd hit in the chain).

Swift Strike

  • Swift Strike can now chains directly into the Chain Finisher (rather than the 2nd hit in the chain).

Developer comments: Kensei’s mix-up from the Unblockable Top Heavy is where Kensei can play mindgames, but the third hit in a chain is very difficult to reach in competitive play. By making it reachable immediately after a Dodge attack, Kensei should be able to apply more pressure.

Side Light attacks

  • Side Light Attack opener startup decreased from 700ms to 600ms.

Developer comments: Kensei’s initiation is currently based around the Top Heavy Feint into Top Light. By speeding up Kensei’s Side Light openers we want to provide more initiation options from idle.

Light Finishers

  • Top Light Finisher recovery on Interrupt Block reduced to 800ms (from 900ms).
  • Side Light Finishers recovery on Interrupt Block reduced to 800ms (from 1100ms).

Light Finishers Out of Guard Mode

  • Top Light Finisher recovery on Interrupt Block reduced to 800ms (from 900ms).
  • Side Light Finishers recovery on Interrupt Block reduced to 800ms (from 1100ms).

Designer comments: These attacks just had to be blocked, and they gave up a free Guardbreak (which led to big damage). We want players to feel they are able to attack more often – and making these safe on block is one step towards that goal.

Berserker

Super Armor

  • Super Armor is now applied on all 2nd and later attacks in chains (used to be applied after 4th).
    • Note: Moveset page is not updated in this version.
  • Berserker no longer requires the preceding attack to hit or be blocked to count towards applying Super Armor.
  • Berserker no longer gets the Stamina cost reduction when Super Armor kicks in.

Developer comments: Berserker’s identity is based on relentless attacking, but the requirement to land 4+ hits is too much in current competitive play. Putting the Super Armor buff on all of the 2nd attacks in the chains means that now Berserkers can access this reliably, and could be used to trade against reacting Shugokis and Warlords with their Super Armor. We’ve removed the Stamina cost reduction to prevent the Berserker from using infinite chains for too long now that we’ve moved the Super Armor buff to 2 hits. We’ll keep an eye on that for further balancing.

Deflect

  • Deflect transitions into Guardbreak after 500ms (reduced from 700ms).

Developer comments: Speeding up the Deflect is meant to help against Peacekeeper and Valkyrie. This will now let Berserker Deflect their Light > Light chains without being stopped by the 2nd Light.

Light Attacks (Out of Guard Mode)

  • Right Light Attacks recovery on Interrupt Block reduced to 700ms (from 900ms)

Designer comments: To prevent free Guardbreak on block. Change is applied on all chained Light Attacks out of Guard Mode to be consistent with their Guard Mode counterpart.

Conqueror

Full Block Stance

  • Hit and Bump recoveries can no longer chain directly into Full Block Stance.

Developer comments: Conqueror’s ability to flow to Full Block Stance from hit/bump reactions made it extremely hard to open even after a successful hit. For instance, Warden’s Shield Bash couldn’t confirm into Light > Light combo. By removing these transitions, we want to remove the Conqueror’s ability to use Full Block Stance as a panic button.

Shield Bash

  • [Bug Fix] Conqueror cannot counter Guardbreak from Shield Bash Hit and Miss Recoveries.

Shield Bash Riposte

  • Shield Bash Riposte startup no longer has Block on Top Guard.
  • Shield Bash Riposte Miss recovery no longer has the ability to Block.
  • [Bug Fix] Conqueror cannot counter Guardbreak from Shield Bash Riposte Hit and Miss Recoveries.

Shield Bash Mix Up

  • Shield Bash Mix Up startup no longer has Block on Top Guard.
  • Shield Bash Mix Up Miss recovery no longer has the ability to Block.
  • [Bug Fix] Conqueror cannot counter Guardbreak from Shield Bash Mix Up Hit and Miss Recoveries.

Developer Comments: Shield Bash Riposte and Mix Up are extremely hard to punish even if you Dodge because they have defense on Start-Ups, Hit and Miss Recoveries. Removing the ability to defend on these moves should make Conqueror more punishable. We’ve also fixed a bug on Shield Bash, Riposte and Mix Up that allowed Conqueror to counter Guardbreak from these moves’ recoveries; which was an exception from our generic rule that Guardbreak cannot be countered from Recovery.

Heavy Attacks

  • Heavy Attack openers damage increased to 25 (from 23).
  • [Bug Fix] Out of Guard Mode Heavy Attack openers now have the same damage and hit areas as their Guard Mode counterpart.

Developer Comments: Heavy Attack openers are buffed to 25 damage, because players regen health to 25. In duels, the Conqueror had a difficult time hitting the killing blow when it was only 23 damage, because the opponent wanted to run-away and regen out of killing range. We know Conqueror is a strong character right now – this minor buff is purely to make the end-of-match faster and more exciting, not to strengthen the Conqueror.

Light Attacks (Out of Guard Mode)

  • Right Light Attacks Recovery on Interrupt Block reduced to 700ms (from 900ms).

Designer comments: To prevent free Guardbreak on block. Change is applied on Light Attack opener and finisher out of Guard Mode to be consistent with their Guard Mode counterpart.

Lawbringer

The Long Arm

The Long Arm now guarantees a Side Heavy Attack (but not Top Heavy).

Developer comments: The Long Arm is an iconic move of the Lawbringer, but before it only connected to a guaranteed light. Now it connects to a guaranteed heavy, which should make the risk of launching this move more worthwhile. This heavy can start the Swift Justice chain, which now also features a faster light after that heavy.

Parry

  • Parry now guarantees an Impaling Riposte.
  • Parry now guarantees a Make Way.

Light Riposte

  • Light Riposte applies Stun on Hit.
    • Note: Moveset page is not updated in this version.
  • Hit and Regular Block recovery branchings into Chain increased to 200ms (from 100ms)

Make Way

  • Make Way has Super Armor.
    • Note: Moveset page is not updated in this version.
  • Make Way damage increased to 25 (from 20).

Developer comments: Part of Lawbringer’s identity is to be a Counter Attacker. Before, only the Light Riposte was guaranteed. Now, Impaling Riposte and Make Way are also guaranteed. Lawbringer players can choose the best option for the current situation: Light Riposte’s new Stun property is meant to help you enter your chain, Impaling Riposte can run the opponent to a wall, and Make Way’s new Super Armor can be useful when you’re outnumbered. We’re also increasing the input branching to go from Light Riposte recovery to Chain in order to make it less challenging input-wise.

Swift Justice (HLH)

  • Light Attack startup decreased to 500ms (from 700ms).
  • Top Light Attack damage increased to 15 (from 10).
  • Side Light Attack damage increased to 15 (from 8).

Book, Chapter and verse (LHL)

  • Top Heavy Attack startup decreased to 1000ms (from 1100ms).
  • Side Heavy Attack startups decreased to 900ms (from 1000ms).
  • Top Heavy attack damage increased to 35 (from 20).
  • Side Heavy attack damage increased to 30 (from 20).
  • Top Light Finisher attack damage increased to 15 (from 10).
  • Side Light Finisher attack damage increased to 15 (from 8).

Judge, Jury and Executioner (LHH)

  • 1st Top Heavy Attack startup decreased to 1000ms (from 1100ms).
  • 1st Side Heavy Attack startups decreased to 900ms (from 1000ms).
  • Heavy Finisher Unblockable attack damage increased to 45 (from 30).

Developer comments: General damage buffs should make the Lawbringer more able to kill the opponent through combat. Some of the chains’ attacks are now faster as well, which we hope will allow the Lawbringer to successfully land hits a bit more frequently. This should help the Lawbringer in Duels but not make him too much stronger in 4v4 game modes where he is already dangerous.

Shove

  • [Bug Fix] Removed Super Armor from Hit and Miss Recoveries.

Developer comments: Shove’s Uninterruptible Stance property was active throughout the build-up and recoveries. It’s now going to be only on the build-up.

Nobushi

Light Finishers

  • Top Light Finisher recovery on Interrupt Block reduced to 800ms (from 900ms)
  • Side Light Finishers recoveries on Interrupt Block reduced to 800ms (from 1000ms)

Light Finisher Out of Guard Mode

  • Right Light Finisher recovery on Interrupt Block increased to 800ms (from 700ms)

Designer comments: To prevent free Guardbreak on block. Change is applied on Light Attack finisher out of Guard Mode to be consistent with its Guard Mode counterpart.

Shugoki

Light Attacks

  • Light Attacks recovery on Interrupt Block reduced to 800ms (from 900ms)

Light Finisher (Out of Guard Mode)

  • Right Light opener recovery on Interrupt Block reduced to 800ms (from 900ms)

Designer comments: To prevent free Guardbreak on block. Change is applied on Light Attack opener out of Guard Mode to be consistent with its Guard Mode counterpart.

Valkyrie

Light Finishers

  • Light Finishers recovery on Interrupt Block reduced to 800ms (from 1000ms)

Light Finisher (Out of Guard Mode)

  • Right Light Finisher recovery on Interrupt Block reduced to 800ms (from 1000ms)

Designer comments: To prevent free Guardbreak on block. Change is applied on Light Attack finisher out of Guard Mode to be consistent with its Guard Mode counterpart.
