This update brings several balance changes that allow smart movement and well-placed attacks to better contest the aerial presence that some of the large weapons command. We have also increased the reliability of follow-up attacks for several underperforming Weapons. Some niche Signatures have also received improvements to allow them to be used in a wider array of situations, while some heavily used Signatures have received adjustments to their risk or reward to better match their overall utility.
The Axe’s largest light attacks can retreat too quickly after an attack, so we have decreased the amount of acceleration allowed during the Neutral Air and Down Air. The Down Light’s Recover time has been slightly increased to similarly emphasize the commitment of such a large attack.
- Axe Down Light: Increased Recover time from 14 Fixed/9 Variable to 14 Fixed/11 Variable.
- Axe Neutral Air: Decreased allowed acceleration during the attack.
- Axe Down Air: Decreased allowed acceleration during the attack.
Given the strong aerial threat the Hammer poses, we have decreased the amount of acceleration allowed during the Neutral Air to make it easier to contest or punish on miss. The Down Air now has a shorter Hit Window and greater Recover time on miss, opening wider avenues of escape and retaliation against this attack. The Time to Hit for the Hammer Recovery has been increased to make this attack easier to contest or escape from during off-stage scenarios.
- Hammer Neutral Air: Decreased allowed acceleration during the attack.
- Hammer Down Air: Decreased Hit Window from 13 to 11; Increased Recover time on miss from 3 Fixed/18 Variable to 4 Fixed/18 Variable.
- Hammer Recovery: Increased Time to Hit from 10 to 12.
The Katar Neutral Air now has less Recover time on hit and greater Stun, granting more time for reliable follow-up attacks on hit. We have also slightly decreased the Recover time on miss for the Down Air’s ground collision, as this attack was slightly too punishable for its small range.
- Katar Neutral Air: Decreased Recover time on hit from 1 Fixed/17 Variable to 0 Fixed/14 Variable; Increased Stun from a range of 23~16 to a range of 24~17.
- Katar Down Air: Decreased Recover time on miss for the ground collision from 7 Fixed/10 Variable to 6 Fixed/10 Variable.
We have reduced the Damage of the Orb’s Neutral Air attack to reduce its overall rate of damage during aerial fights, as this attack is often used as a setup tool for stronger follow-up attacks.
- Orb Neutral Air: Decreased Damage from 14 to 12.
The Rocket Lance Side Light now has a new version of setup location logic. This logic is more strict about where it leaves the target, allowing previous low damage follow-up situations to be done across a larger health range, while also preventing situations where the target is sent too far to attack at high damage ranges. We have also slightly increased the Neutral Air’s threat area for more reliable hits with the front and middle of this attack.
- Lance Side Light: Changed to stricter setup location logic that also gradually changes setup location based on the target’s damage, similar to Gauntlets Down Light; Force changed from 30 Fixed/6 Variable to 55 Fixed/0 Variable.
- Lance Neutral Air: Slightly increased threat area during the beginning and middle of the attack.
We have slightly reduced the Hit Window of the Scythe’s Neutral Air attack to allow for more reliable escapes back to stage against this powerful aerial attack.
- Scythe Neutral Air: Decreased Hit Window from 6 to 5.
Ada’s Neutral Blasters now has significantly less Recover time and greater Force to better match its relatively high demand of accuracy.
- Ada Neutral Blasters: Decreased Recover time from 25 to 20; Increased Force from 60 Fixed/51 Variable to 60 Fixed/53 Variable.
We have increased the Recover time of Gnash’s Neutral Spear and Neutral Hammer to better match their overall threat coverage and built-in movement that can be difficult to punish.
- Gnash Neutral Spear: Increased total Recover time from 22 to 24.
- Gnash Neutral Hammer: Increased total Recover time from 15 to 17.
Mordex Side Gauntlets and Down Gauntlets have had their force reduced to bring their knockout potential more in line with their respective threat coverage and utility.
- Mordex Side Gauntlets: Decreased Force from 70 Fixed/52 Variable to 64 Fixed/50 Variable.
- Mordex Down Gauntlets: Decreased Force of the forward version from 60 Fixed/49 Variable to 55 Fixed/44 Variable; Decreased Force of the neutral version from 60 Fixed/50 Variable to 55 Fixed/48 Variable.
Munin’s Side Bow now has greater Recover time to better fit its built-in movement and overall threat coverage. We have also reduced the Force of the Side Bow, Down Bow, and Down Scythe Signatures as they were scoring knockouts too early in most situations.
- Munin Side Bow: Increased total Recover time from 12 to 14; Decreased Force of the wall and aerial bursts from 55 Fixed/43 Variable to 50 Fixed/41 Variable; Decreased Force of the ground version from 62 Fixed/51 Variable to 60 Fixed/50 Variable.
- Munin Down Bow: Decreased Force from 60 Fixed/53 Variable to 58 Fixed/51 Variable.
- Munin Down Scythe: Decreased Force of the grounded version from 65 Fixed/51 Variable to 60 Fixed/50 Variable; Decreased Force of the aerial version from 55 Fixed/45 Variable to 50 Fixed/42 Variable.
We have increased the Minimum Charge time of Petra’s Side Gauntlets to provide a wider opening for player’s to contest or dodge this attack.
- Petra Side Gauntlets: Increased Minimum Charge time from 13 to 15.
The Recover time of Queen Nai’s Neutral Katars has been significantly reduced to be more in line with other similar Signatures and to better serve as an anti-air attack.
- Queen Nai Neutral Katars: Decreased total Recover time from 36 to 24.
Sir Roland’s Side Rocket Lance now gains more momentum from movement, increasing its maximum threat range to be more in line with other similar attacks.
- Sir Roland Side Rocket Lance: Increased momentum from movement such as a dash.
Ulgrim’s Neutral Rocket Lance now has more consistently vertical knockback, allowing for slightly earlier knockouts in most situations. It also has slightly less forward movement before the attack and a shorter Minimum Charge time, allowing this Signature to more reliably strike opponents that are near the user.
- Ulgrim Neutral Lance: The angle of knockback is now more vertical and more consistent; Slightly decreased forward movement during the Time to Hit; Decreased Minimum Charge time from 11 to 10.
- Ulgrim Down Lance: Decreased total Recover time on miss from 25 to 22.
