Starstorm Report #29: Patch 2.1 Beta 1 is LIVE!


Hey guys. We just launched the beta again for Starstorm! This time around you get to play with some really cool new custom game features! Especially the random new class on death feature can be heaps of fun. Best thing (in my opinion) though is Allow same class in team. Yes, this allows for 3xLeon vs 3xFroggy G. or All Clunk. We're looking forward to some really silly ingame situations! Notes below.

We'd like to wish you all a very good Christmas!!!

      Makes Genji Cheaper but weaker? There's nothing but price nerfs there, and when combined with solar tree nerf + AA nerf, it will be harder for genji to get solar on top of the price nerfs.

      Nothing I disagree with in this patch. Make Genji cheaper but weaker, make Gnaws Weeds scale better, all good changes. Finally, my most awaited custom game features, YOLONauts

      @Patricelli Coco ball was already nerfed in 2.0 or whatever last patch was.

      Can't Touch This is back in business!

    11. Trevor Patricelli on

      Aw... genji gets nerfed... he didn't need that. Coco's ball on the other hand has been p issng me off, and that didn't get nerfed. This is like Christmas if you didn't get anything on your list :(

      I didn't get a "sandstorm" key either :p

      T-800 dome now spawns a hummingbird droid instead of a sawblade droid.
      T-800 dome removed one stage, droid spawns with 100% health"

      I was really hoping this wouldn't happen to T-Dome 800, now nobody will use it.
