Balance Updates

  • AOE Profiles
    • Adjusted AOE profiles such that mid-range was no longer lethal to infantry. This better differentiates close from mid, creating a more defined damage drop of profile. This will significantly decrease the amount of squad wipes which can occur, although low health squads are still vulnerable as always.
    • Mines will be less prone to wiping out an entire squad
    • A number of units have had their scatter modified to maintain their design
