PATCH NOTES 0.50.0 – JANUARY 19TH, 2022

Hey gang, Aesop here with the big 5-0. Update FIFTY. We got Aiden, we got skins, we got items, we got bug fixes (Bianca W fix anyone?). Let us begin.

Servers will go down January 19th at 6 PM (PT) to apply Update 0.50.0.

New Character - Aiden

“Nobody's life is that simple.”


The two-handed sword wielder Aiden is now here on Lumia Island.

Aiden will cost 9,900 A-Coin during the first 2 weeks after release. He will be available in ranked matches starting from January 25th (KST).


Overcharge (Passive)

Aiden gains an Ampere every time he hits an enemy with a skill. When Aiden has 5 Amperes and there are no enemies within a radius of 2.6m, he becomes Overcharged for 10 seconds, gaining 5 bullets and ranged basic attacks.

While Overcharged, Aiden’s basic attacks will always critically strike, and he gains additional critical strike damage based on his critical strike chance. However, he loses 0.25 base attack speed and 15% critical strike damage.

After Overcharge expires, Aiden's movement speed is increased for a few seconds.

  • Attack Range when Overcharged : 5/5.5/6m

  • Critical Strike Damage Increase per 1% of Critical Strike Chance:  0.2/0.3/0.4%

  • Movement Speed Increase after Overcharge : 7/10/13 %


Lightning Strike / Volt Cannon (Q)

Lightning Strike: Aiden thrusts his gunblade forward, dealing 25/50/75/100/125(+Attack Power 55%) basic attack damage to the first enemy hit and gaining 2 Amperes. Basic attacks reduce the cooldown of Lightning Strike by 1 second.

During Overcharge, Aiden can use Volt Cannon.

Volt Cannon: Aiden fires 1 bullet in the targeted direction, dealing 30/65/100/135/170(+Attack Power 80%) basic attack damage to the first enemy hit and slowing them by 45% for 0.65 seconds. Hitting an enemy with Volt Cannon decreases its cooldown by 50%.

Lightning Strike and Volt Cannon are not affected by Cooldown Reduction.

  • Lightning Strike Range : 3m

  • Volt Cannon Range : 7m

  • Lightning Strike SP Cost : 20/25/30/35/40

  • Lightning Strike Cooldown : 5/4.5/4/3.5/3s

  • Volt Cannon SP Cost : 60

  • Volt Cannon Cooldown : 5/4.5/4/3.5/3s



Dissipation (W)

Aiden slows himself while he channels high voltage into his gunblade.

When recast, or at max duration, Aiden deals 25/35/45/55/65(+Attack Power 40%) ~ 50/70/90/110/130(+Attack Power 80%) skill damage to enemies nearby based on charge time and slows them by 45% for 0.65 seconds.

If fully charged, Aiden leaves behind a Sparkring for 2.5 seconds, dealing 30/75/120/165/210(+Attack Power 25%) skill damage to enemies that touch it and rooting them for 1.1/1.2/1.3/1.4/1.5 seconds.

  • Range : Radius 3.25m

  • Sparkring Duration : 2.5s

  • SP Cost : 75

  • Cooldown : 15/14/13/12/11s


Backstep/Bolt Rush (E)

Passive: The cooldown of this skill is reset upon reaching full Amperes.

Backstep: Aiden steps back and fires an electric bullet, dealing 15/30/45/60/75(+Attack Power 20%) skill damage to the first enemy hit and marking them. The mark provides vision to Aiden and enables him to use Bolt Rush. Aiden’s movement speed is increased for 2 seconds after using Backstep.

Bolt Rush: Aiden dashes to the marked enemy, dealing 75/105/135/165/195(+Attack Power 45%) skill damage. Aiden can use Bolt Rush while charging Dissipation (W).

  • Backstep Range : 5.5m

  • Movement Speed Increase after Backstep : 5/8/11/14/17%

  • SP Cost : 50

  • Cooldown : 20/18/16/14/12s



Electrostatic Surge (R)

Aiden discharges a thunderbolt at the targeted location, dealing 40/70/100(+Attack Power 35%) skill damage and slowing enemies by 30% for 1 second. Enemies hit in the middle instead receive 80/140/200(+Attack Power 70%) skill damage and are stunned for 1 second.

Aiden then discharges a second thunderbolt at the same location, dealing 80/120/200(+Attack Power 50%) skill damage and slowing enemies hit by 30% for 1 second.

If the first thunderbolt hits an enemy, Aiden can recast Electrostatic Surge to teleport to the thunderbolt’s location, immediately triggering the second thunderbolt and fully charging Aiden’s Amperes.

  • Thunderbolt Range : Radius 2.75m

  • Thunderbolt Center Range : Radius 1m

  • SP Cost : 120

  • Cooldown : 120/90/60s



New Skins & Emotes

Arctic Expedition Nathapon (Uncommon) will be available for purchase.

“I'll try my best to capture all of this perfect scenery through the lens of my camera.”


Wistful Heritage Sua (Rare) & Dragon Dance Li Dailin (Rare) will be available for purchase on January 28th. (KST)

“Remember, every new year is the first page of your new story.”

“Don't worry, Dragon Dailin is here to ward off all those pesky evil spirits following you around!”

New Year Emotes will be available for purchase on Jan 28th (KST). Happy New Year everyone!!


System

Auto Equip Feature

How many times have you been walking around wearing a watch but a perfectly good Sheath of Shah Jahan is in your inventory.

  • Crafting an item in your Saved Plan will automatically equip the item based on rarity.

    • Ex: If you’re wearing Bracelet and craft Radar, Radar will automatically be equipped.

    • Crafting a Vital Sign Sensor will automatically equip the item.

    • Higher rarity items, such as Bracelet of Skadi, are not auto equipped.

  • The Auto Equip Feature can be enabled in Settings.


Collectible UI Improvements

Smarter UI. Nice.

  • Now notifies you for situations where only Branch, Stone, or Leather are needed for crafting.

  • Originally, the UI only notified you when the full item can be crafted. The UI now also notifies you in situations when lower tier items can be crafted as well.

 

Untargetable Downed Targets

Don’t waste your skills on an already downed enemy!

  • After a target is downed in team modes, the target will become untargetable for 0.5s.

 

Ranked Matchmaking & LP Improvements

Wider matchmaking for top tiers in Solo was causing some issues with high/low queueing. LP regarding team modes is also getting a small adjustment.

  • Matchmaking in top solo tiers (Titan or above) will be slightly tighter.

  • LP gain from kills(TK) is slightly increased in team modes.

  • Killing an enemy that revived is now also counted as a TK in team modes.

 

Matching UI Improvements (Quick Start etc.)

A more improved and refined matching UI!

  • A Quick Start option is now available for team modes too.

  • The Quick Start option will include teammate search and matchmaking all in one button. 

  • Improved effects for finding teammates.

  • Implemented notifications for successful teammate search and matchmaking start.

 

Chat Improvements

Don’t you just love chatting? All chat when???

  • Multiple tabs can now be created for whispering.

  • Tabs are divided into System, Custom chat, Matchmaking & Premade, and Whisper.

Chatting has been improved for in-game as well.

  • A unique sound effect has been added for chatting and whispering.

  • Scroll wheel now works for in-game chat.

  • Areas for allied hyperloops are also displayed. (Includes cancelation alerts.)

    • Aesop is hyperlooping to Forest.

    • Aesop has canceled their Hyperloop.

  • Your hyperloop destination is also shown through the UI. (Not through chat)


Loading Tips

  • New tips regarding lore have been added!

 

Hyperloop Adjustments

The hyperloop activation change from 4s to 3s improved the rhythm of the game, so we’re keeping that change. However, it has made it harder for players to react to incoming hyperloops. The more unstable version of hyperloop should help with the issue.

  • Untargetable upon hyperloop arrival for 1s -> 2s

  • Unable to use basic attacks, skills, items and slowed by 30% for 1.5s upon hyperloop arrival -> Unable to use basic attacks, skills, items and slowed by 20% for 2.5s

 

2nd Projectile Improvements

Projectiles mark a target as ‘hit’ as soon as a test subject touches any edge of the projectile, which can result in hitting enemies in the opposite direction when the caster is close to an enemy.

Please let us know if you still see it happening. This update we’ve covered:

  • Cathy Suture(E)

  • Crossbow Expulsion Shot(D)

Early game Echion was slapping a little too hard.

    • Weapon Mastery gain based on damage dealt by allies with the attack speed bonus

      • 30% of ally damage → 60%

    • Cooldown 20/18/16/14/12s → 18/16.5/15/13.5/12s
