PATCH NOTES 0.44.0 – OCTOBER 27TH, 2021

Hello players of Eternal Return! Aesop here with a big fat patch for you all. It feels like it’s been a while since we last spoke. (Maybe because it has!)

This patch marks the end of Season 3 and the start of the Preseason, so there’s a lot of changes, experimental or otherwise. Let’s get started.

Servers will go down October 27th at 7pm PST to apply Update 0.44.0.

Preseason Start

The first dive into Season 4

  • Pre-season will go on for 2 weeks before Season 4 starts on 11/11 KST.

  • Your LP for Season 3 will be finalized once maintenance begins.

  • All season rewards, including Cadet Hyejin, will be distributed based on your final Season 3 LP. You will be able to collect rewards on November 11th. (KST)

  • Your preseason rank will not affect season rewards, but your LP will undergo a soft reset based on your final LP in the preseason when Season 4 starts.

New Character  - Chloe

Lumia’s Marionettist has arrived on Lumia Island.

Chloe will cost 9,900 A-Coin for 2 weeks and she will be available in ranked matches starting from Monday, November 2nd. (KST)


Living Marionette (Passive)

Chloe is always accompanied by her doll, Nina. Hitting an enemy by 2 or more of Chloe’s basic attacks causes Nina's next attack to deal 25/50/75 extra skill damage to the target.

Chloe can move Nina and target enemies with Alt + Right Click. Targeting Chloe will cause Nina to follow Chloe until a new target is set. If Chloe and Nina is too far away, Nina will warp to Chloe’s location.

If Nina dies, she consumes 50% of Chloe's remaining HP to revive after 24/22/20 seconds with 80% of her own Max HP.

Nina gains extra stats based on the level of Living Marionette and she also gains 66%(⅔) of Chloe’s Attack Power, Defense, HP, Critical Strike Chance, Extra Skill Damage, and Skill Amplification.

  • Passive Extra Attack Power : 10/35/60
  • Passive Extra Defense : 15/40/65
  • Passive Extra Max HP : 400/600/800
  • Nina Teleport Distance : 10m

Nina on Command (Q)

Following Chloe's command, Nina attacks with her bladed legs, dealing 90/100/110/120/130(+Attack Power 60%) skill damage and slowing enemies by 20/25/30/35/40% for 2 seconds.

  • Cooldown : 5s
  • SP Cost : 70/75/80/85/90
  • Nina Attack Range : Radius 2.5m

Puppet Theatre (W)

Chloe twirls her bladed threads around her, dealing 30/36/42/48/54 true damage per second to enemies and slowing them by 50%. Chloe can cast Nina on Command and Seam Ripper while twirling her threads.

Recast the skill within 3 seconds to throw the threads in the targeted location, dealing 80/90/100/110/120(+Attack Power 30%) damage to enemies and blocking movement skills for 1.5 seconds. After impact, Nina teleports to the location, dealing 120/135/150/165/180(+Attack Power 30%) damage to enemies and knocking them airborne for 0.5 seconds. After Nina teleports, the threads can be picked up, increasing Chloe’s movement speed by 30% for 2 seconds.

  • Cooldown : 15/14/13/12/11s
  • SP Cost: 90/95/100/105/110
  • Thread Spin Range: Radius 3m
  • Thread Throw Range : 6.5m
  • Thread Attack Range : Radius 1.5m
  • Nina Attack Range : Radius 2m

Seam Ripper (E) 

Chloe slides to the targeted direction, dealing 60/70/80/90/100(+Attack Power 30%) damage to enemies in her path. Recast the skill after 1 second to cause Nina to slide towards Chloe's location, dealing 100/110/120/130/140(+Attack Power 45%) damage to enemies in her path. Hitting an enemy resets the cooldown of Nina on Command.

  • Cooldown : 13/12.5/12/11.5/11s
  • SP Cost : 80/85/90/95/100
  • Chloe Dash Range : 5m
  • Nina Dash Range : 7m

Soul Link (R)

Chloe and Nina link their souls together for 7 seconds. Upon linking, all debuffs and crowd control effects are cleansed and Nina’s Attack Speed and Movement Speed is increased by 20/25/30%, and the cooldown of Puppet Theatre and Seam Ripper are reduced by 30%. The Soul Link chain deals 75/105/135 true damage (Increases the longer enemies remain in the link) to enemies touching it.

If Chloe or Nina are damaged while linked, they take 70% of the damage and the linked partner takes 65/60/55% of the damage. While Soul Linked, Chloe and Nina cannot die unless they are both simultaneously fully depleted of health.

  • Cooldown : 120/110/100s
  • SP Cost : 80/70/60
New Skin & Emotes

Witchy Emma will be available for purchase at the store on Thursday, October 28th 10:00 (PT).

 


We’ll also have a ton of Halloween emotes  available as well. Check the Halloween Event for more information.

System

Augment
It’s coming! The augment system is ready to roll. I’m pretty excited to see what you all come up with!

  • A Primary and Secondary Category can be selected from 3 categories. (Havoc, Fortification, Support)

  • Each category consists of 3 Core Augments and 5 Sub Augments. The primary augment will enable selection for 1 Core augment and 2 sub augments, while the secondary category will provide 2 sub augments for choosing.

  • To check out more details about the Augment system, please check here. [Link]


Flattening out Lumia Island & Detail Improvements
Lumia Island is now more beautiful, consistent, and overall more optimized.

  • Some areas have been flattened out to increase visual consistency for non-target skills.
  • Due to technical improvements during the re-drawing process, the map will be more detailed but also more well optimized!
  • More changes can be found in the link below.
  • Check the Lumia Island video to see how it’ll look. (No, it’s not snow map time yet.)


Team Finder
Matching with random teammates resulted in long matchmaking and sometimes unwanted teams. The Team Finder will improve this process by providing the option to build your team first before matching.

  • When starting team modes alone or with 1 partner, the game will search for remaining teammates before entering the queue. You can talk beforehand with your team as well.

  • Tier restrictions for matchmaking in team modes will be lifted during the pre-season. During the regular season, matchmaking for gold or below will not be limited. Platinum or above will continue to have a limit same as before.

  • Also, the team invite notification moved to appear above the Game Start button.

 

Teammate Targeted Items Display
See what items your teammates need! Show your teammates what you need! Please get me some shoes from uptown!

  • Pinging a targeted item with Alt + Left Click will display the item on your teammates screen.
  • One player can mark a total of 4 items.
  • If any one of your teammates obtain the item, the item will appear as checked. However, if 2 or more players need the same item, it will prioritize you first.
  • Alt + Left Clicking the item again will remove the item from the screen.

 

Saved Plans Collectible Alert

Sometimes when following an unfamiliar plan, players tend to collect their sticks or rocks either too late or too early. The game will now alert you if you can finish an item with collectibles in your current area.


Saved Plans Matchups Section

A Matchups section will now be added to Saved Plans.

Get the inside scoop from the one-tricks and learn all about your test subject.

 

Technical Improvements

Input Lag and Reactiveness Improvements

The game will now feel smoother to play and characters will respond more accurately and precisely to inputs.

  • The update time for each frame will now be shorter.
  • The input queue structure has been improved.
  • The game now reacts 0.05s faster to mouse clicks and keyboard.

  • Warning: With the changes to input lag improvements, the CPU load may be slightly higher than usual when playing AI or practice modes. This will be improved in future patches, but we recommend selecting the 60 fps option when playing AI/practice modes on a low end computer.


Attack Move to Cursor Option (Improvements to attack priority)

We received a lot of feedback about test subjects attacking Cameras when using attack move so we’ve added a new option: Attack Move to Cursor.

  • When clicking the ground,(Attack + Ground)

    • Attack Move to Cursor Off: Attacks the nearest test subject. Always prioritizes test subjects over cameras.

    • Attack Move to Cursor On:  Attacks the target nearest to the cursor. If a camera is near the cursor, it will be prioritized.


Character Targeting Hitbox Improvements
It’s now a little easier to select your intended target!

Characters will have a little more hitbox range outside of their original outlines which should help for better target selection.


Gameplay Improvements

We’ve reached the pre-season which calls for many meta changes!

Vision Improvements
Security Consoles were very low-risk high reward. Gaining vision with the CCTV will now come with more risks and diversity in strategy.

  • Only one team can have vision through a security console.

  • Activating a security console removes all vision for the previous team after 3 seconds.

  • The security console will not be available for use for 3 seconds after usage.

Hyperloops will also have more risks than before.

  • Hyperloop pedestals will no longer provide vision - you can no longer check your destination and decide to cancel your hyperloop or not.


Mastery System Improvements

Movement Speed from mastery and equipment will be nerfed, but base movement speed for test subjects will be buffed overall. (See Character & Armor) We’re also planning an update with new unique passives for equipment with feathers.

Hunt mastery will be nerfed due to its low-risk rewarding playstyle as well.

To improve the current method of increasing multiple defensive stats via HP and Defense mastery, mastery will be simplified. The Health and Meditation mastery will combine into one. In the future, Health mastery will be changed to HP & SP Recovery out of combat, giving more strategic advantages rather than raw combat stats.

  • Move Mastery

    • Movement speed per Mastery level 0.01 → 0.005

  • Hunt Mastery

    • Required XP: 180 + 170 per Mastery Level → 180 + 200 per Mastery Level

  • Meditation Mastery (REMOVED)

  • Trap Mastery

    • Trap Damage per Mastery Level 4% → 3%

    • Mastery gain per 40 Trap Damage to test subjects 150 → 75


Executioner Effects
To reduce third partying, damage contribution will now be calculated to provide an Executioner buff.

  • If a test subject deals damage equal to 60% of an enemy’s Max HP, the inflictor gains an Executioner buff if their target dies within 15s.

  • Recovers (5 + 0.5 * Level of slain test subject)% of missing HP & SP over 3 seconds. (Is not reduced by Healing Reduction)

  • Recovers 5s of Restricted Area Timer (Can not exceed max timer limit)


Restricted Area Timer Improvements
Managing your timer now has an extra level of strategy and has been increased overall.

  • Max Timer: 30s → 40s

  • Players start with 30 seconds at the start, but can increase their timer by killing test subjects, executioner effects, or slaying Alpha or Omega.

  • Extra Timer when Temporary Restricted Areas Triggered: 20s → 15s



Objective & Wild Animals Improvements
Wild Animals are now swifter, making them harder to just kite. Wild dogs will be a little beefier late game. Alpha and Omega are more rewarding. Wickeline’s Buff will now deal different amounts of damage depending on whether the owner is melee and or ranged.

  • XP 30 per Level → 50 per Level
  • Base Movement Speed 2.8 → 3.1


Character

A lot of changes are coming to Lumia Island. Augments are expected to bring big changes to combat. With the changes to Mastery, Restricted Areas, Vision, and Objectives, we’re expecting hella new strategies and maybe some new cheese strats to pop up. 

With all that in mind, most character changes will mostly be improvements. However, a few characters will be changed to prevent the possibility of absolutely bursting enemies in the early game, so we wanted to get ahead of that. We’ll follow up with more updates and changes once we see how Eternal Return is evolving on a larger scale.


Character Price Reduction

Some characters are now cheaper!

  • Li Dailin

    • NP Cost 1075 → 970

  • Movement Speed 3.55 → 3.5

  • Blue Viper(R)

    • Bleed damage can no longer be canceled by stop stepping.

Luke can really roll the low tiers. This’ll make it so he can’t just run down people and attack them to death.

  • Heavy Strike(E) 

    • Stun Duration 1.1s → 0.8/0.9/1/1.1/1.2s
