(The above refers to the lowest level of the cards, and the percent values are rounded to the nearest integer. For actual content, see the in-game info.)
- Notes on the Balance Changes
When doing balance changes, the team usually considers two reference points: “Same level balance” and the “normal distribution of levels”. Take a Legendary card for example; leveling up the card is difficult and there’s a limit of one card, so given the consideration of the “normal distribution of levels”, the basic values are set higher (I.e. they’re much stronger).
However, since every player’s leveling up strategy is different, even if we consider normal distribution, the results may be inaccurate. Therefore, we think basing balances on same level conditions is a better solution, and much simpler. From Challenge Mode, the team can collect tons of valuable data. In the future, balance changes will primarily be done based on same level conditions.
Given the Alien’s use rate, win rate, performance, etc. in Challenge Mode, we did a large-scale balance change to the Alien faction. (The current ranking of win rates among factions is as follows: Alien, Beasts, Republic, Empire.)
Based on Challenge Mode data, there are some cards that are on the “might be adjusted” list, including some Epic cards and Legendary cards. But given that the above changes will affect the game in not such a small way, we decided to limit the number of cards adjusted to prevent a ripple effect. We’ll continue observing those cards and see if they need to be adjusted next time around.
