[Logged] Evolve cocoon damage was not increased in 6.0.1


#1

Continuing the discussion from Patch 6.0.1 Notes:

This is not true, and has not changed. I submit the following evidence:

Sunny deals 175 damage with her Mini-nuke launcher with no perks/mastery. If she deals 25% bonus damage, that would be 218.75 damage. If she deals 35% bonus damage, that would be 236.25. As the following video shows, the former of those two statements is currently the case (skip to 1:15 to see the damage result):

Was that acquired through a custom game with 5people? I’m curious as to how you did that now. Lol.


#4

A custom game with 2 people.


#5

Doesn’t it only count with bullet weapons?


#6

No. If you read the post or watch the video you can see that I do indeed deal 25% bonus damage with explosive mini-nuke launcher (which has always been the case).


#7

Ok thanks… Damn you really need to be a Tester lol


#8

I was a QA Tester for several years. :grin:


#9

These last few updates have been a bit all over the place, some things in when not listed and many others that are supposed to be in but aren’t :frowning:


#10

Imagine me… My databases are a pain to update when they do stealth changes.


#11

So the incap health change, Jack pistol change and now Cocoon damage changes weren’t actually implemented? ._.


#12

The change to jack’s pistols has been implemented now (along with a noteworthy stealth nerf to his satellite). The incap health changes might be in the game now? The devs say that they are - but as a former QA tester and current game developer I know better than most: never trust a dev :smiley:! I’ll retest the incap health changes as soon as I can get 4 people online that care enough about that sort of thing. Not all of my friends are smart enough to care how a game “works”.


#13

Oh? Do tell? :open_mouth:

Can easily be tested, will do it later. :stuck_out_tongue:


#14

Notice how that first part you quoted is a hyperlink? :grin:


#15

Yup, just read that…Honestly if this turns out to be all true I won’t be pleased. -.-


#16

The video I posted in that thread proves it, if you want to see it.


#17

Yup, took a look at it…Wow.


#18

Let’s not forget that the Tier 2 Spider Trap is more damaging than Tier 3 and that Health Regen will not work sometimes and that bodies still fall through maps and a whole slew of other problems…

It’s like we didn’t get an update… but we did… but… we didn’t… like all the bad ones and none of the good ones.


#19

So this also confirms my concern in the thread I posted here…

why would they give 30% armor in coccon phase ? lowers your reward for being in monster face when it evolves.
If armor came after evolve completes it would be good


#20

It’s a whole different side-game trying to work out what has been changed and what hasn’t! And I think you’re winning @white_hawke8 with a few other honorable mentions (if I had the time) :smile:
