It was suggested I post a new topic about the new patch.
Running Arkham 1.8 EGS
Started a new game with this patch.
The problem I’m seeing, is I hit a wall. After hitting this wall, I can’t win battles… even after replaying them a dozen times, knowing exactly where/how the enemy are going to hit me. This isn’t a specific battle, its seems like its all battles after this point.
I hit F-12 in the game, and uploaded the issue/saved game.
Prior to this point in the game, I had no issues, but now… battles are just dumb. an example, I added a guy that can neural disrupt Sirens, and used him to good effect in previous battles, now… even with him, I just loose every battle.
Someone suggested shooting Sirens heads (of course I’m doing that)… and I realized, that at this point in the game, when shooting Siren’s heads, I kill the Sirens before I can disable their heads.
some of what I think I’m seeing.
. Just more enemies per battle, more everything.
. Takes about twice as much damage to kill an enemy.
. MUCH more difficult to disable the head of a Siren, end up just killing when I shoot them in the head…
. Enemy seems to be using cover much more, to the point I’m having real hard time shooting them outside of Overwatch.
. Overwatch seems to be much less accurate then past battles.
. Tar Pandas (always difficult) seem to be especially so now… the host Panda, is much harder to kill, after they Tar up, they seem to take a LOT more damage. resulting in Tar Panda’s killing multiple troopers before they can be stopped (even after have War Cry on them).
Captured Pandas don’t produce nearly the same about of food. I think it should be adjusted a bit higher, it seems like it was adjusted much to low with this patch.
I haven’t seen a vehicle capture mission… had to build my own, previous games before this patch, I would get a couple of these, and I wouldn’t have to build my own.
The rescue Soldiers mission, keeps giving me troopers that are too week, with bad equipment. I think they should match about what point in the game you are at, making these missions better than just recruiting and building their equipment.
I have really LOVED the game, prior to this patch… I find it was difficult, but with effort I was able to win. Now… I seem to be reaching a point where I just can’t win any battles.
I find these battles to be even tougher than the old Guardian sites.
One more observations about War Cry and Tar Pandas.
in the past (prior to this patch)… I the Panda host had War Cry on them, the Tar Panda that was created, also had War Cry on them… I tried this on the new patch, the Tar Panda did not have War Cry on them. I could war Cry them again… (after the host died)… but this might be a bug with this patch.
