4.7.0 Gala Revamp & Cloak balancing
Hello valorians, hope everyone is doing okay! This patch can be summed up in two words, short and sweet. Bringing you a resprited gala, balancing and addition of new cloak and two new AR passives, QoL rate adjustments and more!
Guild Rewards are now live for 72 hours, as well as a new Fabled Crate rotation for the month.
Stay tuned for the upcoming valentines event, check out #announcements. A bunch of mod events, guarenteed challenge days, scripture discounts and more!
Staff Changes & Promotions
Gancho and Silent have been promoted from Helper to Jr Mod, they have been helpful with various mod tasks and keeping an eye ingame & discord. A great addition to the team to help out in tickets as well. We are also bringing in two new spriters as well. This will be announced on the 10th, as we're contacting them this week. Can't wait to see what more they can bring to the table! Massive thanks to Tehend for all his awesome work so far, he had been an integral part of the spriting team for Valor, but now has focus on other things. He has been moved to Retired Staff. Make sure to congratulate everyone!
Galactic Plateau Resprite
As an ongoing goal of ours, and long awaited task. We are here to present a fully resprited galactic plateau and mothership. A definite future dystopian vibe to the table. Massive thanks to BQ for the spriting and mapping. As well as a new addition of a LG cloak to The Overseer. Make sure to checkout the balancing doc below.
The map and layout is slightly different, in order to make it a smoother experience overall, but it stays true to the same core concepts, it just looks amazing now!
With this patch, we are bringing another round of balancing changes. This time to cloaks, and focusing on trying to bring out more metas, and make certain cloaks more useful. With this there is the addition of the new cloak, as well as a full rework of AR Cloak. As always, constructive feedback is welcome!
