Content[edit | edit source]

  • Captains can now access and begin playing the first episode in any story arc.
  • The Crystalline Entity TFO has been updated with various changes to match the Event version:
    • There is now a 30 second Mission Briefing time before the TFO begins.
      • This allows players time to join the TFO and read the briefing if necessary, before taking on the Entity.
    • The Entity shards that it deploys are now immune to control effects.
    • Small Shards will no longer buff the Entity’s damage for the entire TFO.
      • Instead, they will give the entity buff stacks towards a more powerful Energy Release after its Absorption Phase.
      • This change results in a potentially stronger Energy Release attack.
      • In response to that, we’ve added a growing AoE indicator to show the area of the Energy Release and how long it will be before it goes off.
    • The Energy Release attack no longer is guaranteed to hit if caught in the AoE indicator when it releases, allowing players to outrun the blast if fast enough.
    • The Entity Beam attacks no longer apply a Flight Speed debuff to players.
      • Instead, Large Shards on Advanced Difficulties will apply a Flight Speed debuff if they are able to explode on a player.
    • The Entity is now entirely immune to damage while in its Absorption Phase.
      • We wanted this phase to be about avoiding the Energy Release and preventing the shards from buffing the attack.
    • The Entity Absorption Phase is now 15 seconds long rather than 30 seconds.
      • This was the case on advanced versions of the queue but is now in parity with Normal.
    • Once the Entity has been destroyed it will explode into many Small Salvageable Crystal Fragments, these fragments can be destroyed to gain 1-5 Salvage from each of them.
  • Resolved an issue that was causing enemies in the TFO, “Tzenkethi Front” to not appear with a bombs needed to complete the mission objectives.
