Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a crash where the controller would disconnect in online games with poor network connections.
  • Fixed a crash on Xbox One after suspending or signing out the user.
  • Fixed a rare crash on Xbox One when joining session invites.
  • Fixed a case that caused the Unarmed Ground Pound to have a larger hitbox than intended when held for a long period of time.
  • Fixed a case that caused the Lance Ground Pound to have a larger hitbox than intended when held for a long period of time.
  • Lucien Side Blasters: Fixed a bug which caused the damage and force charge bonus to be greater than intended. (Credit: samantha-may).

 

Game Improvements

  • Made revisions to the Medieval Dragon KO effect to improve performance.

 

  • We’ve added a new feature where you can hide the match timer in Stock matches until there is 1 minute remaining. Try out the option and let us know how it feels during gameplay.
  • We’ve added a new Warshuttle map to the Experimental Map queue! Try out the map and let us know how it feels.
  • We’ve graduated Directional Gravity Cancel! We appreciate the feedback that was given. Here’s how it works:
    • Directional Dodges can be Gravity Canceled into a grounded attack within the first 5 frames.
    • The attack is based on the direction of the dodge: A downward dodge will only cancel into a Down Light or Down Signature.
    • Spot Dodge and Chase Dodge behavior is unchanged.
  • The Experimental version of Twilight Grove has been removed. While it did reduce evasive play on the right side of the stage, the new geometry hindered movement at a large degree when trying to recover back to the stage. We’ll continue to investigate further on how to enhance a player’s experience on Twilight Grove.
  • We’ve removed the Ledge Canceling test feature. It did not provide a consistent solution towards accidental ledge cancels and had too large of a disparity between keyboard and controller users when intending to activate a ledge cancel. This one is coming back into the shop as we try some alternate variations that may better answer these concerns.
  • We’ve also removed Dash Deflect from Test Features as it did not serve its intended purpose as a conscious counter-play option to thrown weapons. It would often result as a by-product of natural movement, rather than a reliable choice. We’ll continue to investigate other possible solutions of counter-play against weapon throws.

 

This patch begins a series of updates and improvements we will be bringing to the more senior members of Brawlhalla. Particular attention has been placed on rebuilding Legend’s Signatures to vastly improve the accuracy of their hitboxing and hurtboxing, as well as updating any outlying Damage and Stun values to more appropriate ranges for their given Legend. Scarlet and Lord Vraxx have received a great number of priority increases on their Signature attacks as a result of the improved hit/hurtboxing, as well as certain attacks like Scarlet’s Down Hammer gaining more reliable Hit Windows. Bodvar also finds increased avoidance on attacks, such as his Down Hammer that bends closer to the ground. These improvements will continue along with each balance patch and are not limited to the range of changes in this week’s update.
