Game Data Balance Patch/Android Hotfix


It has come to my attention that the Android versions of FTB aren't able to connect to the servers. This is a very big problem and I acted on that immediately. While doing so, I also prepared a new balance patch that should make the game much more fun!

What happened?

Android was having some performance issues in what I assume would be a lot of devices. I found the problem, solved it, and made a hotfix (a hotfix is an update that fixes a big problem).

I thought I tested it properly at the time, but unfortunately I hadn't realized that I was using a some code that wasn't fully compatible with the server.

As a result, I quickly made a fix to that version just now, and it should hopefully work properly.

What's that about a balance patch?

While fixing this, I also released an updated game data version that also adds some balance changes to the game. I didn't like that several good cards weren't being used, so I wanted to fix that. This patch doesn't need a whole new download (except for Android, due to the issues mentioned above), you should be able to download it in-game.

Here are the changes:

  • Al'Kai now has Tactician, costs 3 and has 2 health (down from 4 cost and 3 health)
  • Amanda now costs 6 cost (down from 10 cost )
  • Anguished Soul is now a Rare card
  • Banish has been renamed to Dismiss
  • Blazing Longsword now has a swing cost of 2 cost (down from 3 cost )
  • Commune now costs 3 cost (down from 4 cost )
  • Cursed Soldier now costs 5 cost (down from 6 cost ), has 3 attack (down from 4 attack ), and its activated power costs 1 cost (down from 2 cost )
  • Dark Assistant is now a Human rather than an undead
  • Gift of Life now allows token followers to trigger it
  • King of Beasts has been renamed to Beast Lord
  • Life Mage Dana now summons crabs instead of guardian treants
  • Lifestream Ritual now costs 6 cost (down from 8 cost )
  • Nalari Passionbringer now costs 4 cost (down from 5 cost) and has 3 health (down from 4 health )
  • Rage bringer now deals 1 damage to you when it joins your party (down from 2)
  • Soul Fire now costs 3 cost (down from 4 cost) and deals 4 damage (down from 5)
  • Tarin Spellburst now doesn't gain attack from exploring for abilities, and has 4 health (down from 5 health )
  • The Painter has been renamed to "Hon Sweetperson, The Painter", his abiities work with any follower, and gains 1 resource instead of 2.
  • Varlari Taunter now has 5 health (down from 6)

What now?

The next update is still being worked on, and involves a lot of big changes, so it'll take a while. I'm hoping to give more news to this in the coming weeks.

I apologize to the Android players who tried the game recently for the inconvenience, and I hope you'll give the game another chance soon.

Thank you very much for your support!
