Theres been a huge burst of gameplay footage this week and I’ve been noticing a lot of small tweaks on the game progress.
First and most, Kraken has been tweaked a LOT! you can absolutely feel his damage output is much more balanced across all of his abilties and the hitboxes of Lightning strike and specially vortex have been fixed to good values.
http://youtu.be/omDW-Ie67-k?t=50m20s here Kraken does a slighy off aimed vortex one the first attempt but moments later he lands a perfectly well aimed vortex right after for the comparision.
http://youtu.be/omDW-Ie67-k?t=51m14s I’m pretty sure I would been hit by that If it was Alpha build … pretty sure.
http://youtu.be/omDW-Ie67-k?t=50m34s A lightning strike aimed near 3 hunters and none of them got hit by the AOE radius? … not common to see that happening in the Alpha … I think they nerfed it
Onto another very noticable awesome tweak, the Maggie Harpoons much more responsiveness and a bit more harder to shake off!
http://youtu.be/omDW-Ie67-k?t=1h5m24s As you can observe in this example, he tried twice to swang a normal attack in the general direction of the trap (wich would work 80% of the times in alpha) but had no success.
Another more subtle change I found was Lazz Ress Hand taking a bit less time (half a second) to ress the bodies.
In terms of Goliath, from what I’ve saw in the Defend round on the Evacuation mode last stream … his Rock Throw is been improved hits more consistently, his Leap Smash might been a bit nerfed from what I suspect and the charge hitbox definely been shorten.
http://youtu.be/omDW-Ie67-k?t=1h5m58s Caira here dodges at the last moment a full on charge and gets away with no damage
I couldn’t be more happy right now, the game is fixing a lot of my post Alpha concerns and is looking better than ever with all the new content.
I would love to see a patchnote or log to confirm these changes (fingers crosses).
