ArcheAge Adding Penalty for Matchmaking Cancellations, Combat Balance Tweaks, and Switches Up Reset Day
By: AwadGorg , Legend Apr 16 /2022
The second 2022 update for ArcheAge is here, and the team took us through what to expect in this spring update. There's a combat balance adjustment, a new Swift blade and secret skills, some improvements for daily quests, and also Arena content.
When it comes to the skills balance adjustment, community feedback was vital to their plans on this. One thing the team is doing is analyzing which effective skills weren't used very much by the players and improving those to feel more necessary. They are also lowering the balance of some other highly efficient and well-used skills.
There are two new skills for the Swiftblade. The Swiftblade, it's a class that is designed for combinations. Because of the need to use so many combos, it can be a little difficult to play or control. So they are looking to reduce player fatigue by changing certain skills and doing so making them continuous so you don't have to switch so fast.
The team is also working on introducing a penalty for matchmaking cancellation. Frustrated players seeing cancellations gave lots of feedback, so this is set to come in the April 21st update. If a player is penalized for canceling, as long as that penalty lasts, there will be restricted entrances to the arena.
