Patch Rationales

Anti-Magic Potion Soulbind

This is a patch we've intended to do for the ever since 4 years ago but we simply couldn't get around it due to the vehemous opposition from Asia UFW cafe (sucks when you have petty politics getting in your way when it comes to making important changes).

This change was especially necessary for several reasons. One, only a handful number of servants can effectively use Anti-Magic Potion. This often creates situations where servants like Lancelot and Gilgamesh would hoard all the AMP available in their team. Because AMP is an integral part of this game, this makes certain servants extraordinary powerful compared to others who can't really make a big use out of it. This causes issues in both gameplay and balance department.

However, this does introduce a problem where certain servants who rely on AMP greatly (FA, Gilgamesh) have become comparatively weaker in their standing. We plan to get around this issue in the future.

Caster (4th) Remake

Problems with Caster (4th) can be summarized in three aspects: Complexity, Balance issues and Camping Game.

Caster (4th) has the largest number of spells available in this game. If that weren't enough, players also have two additional units (Territory and Creature) to control. This made the complexity of this servant way too staggering where even seasoned players had a difficult time playing him, let alone new players. To improve his playability, we first decided to cut down the complexity by removing his territory related spells altogether. The territory had its own problems to begin with - it allowed Caster (4th) to dish out a large AOE damage with ease, which made enemies reluctant to enter combat. In short, this strengthened Caster (4th)'s camping game too much.

But because Caster (4th) had the largest amount of options available to him, this meant that adept players at him are really capable of "breaking" the game. This posed a great challenge in balancing in general. Both the nerfs and buffs were dangerous to perform on this servant. Removing territory and its relevant spells greatly cut down on the number of options available for Caster (4th), so we're anticipating that it should be easier to balance this servant from now on.

His camping game had to be tackled. Removing territory is a great start in our opinion, but also Demonic Creature having no mobility forced Caster (4th) to camp in a lot of situations. The first thing we did is introduce some mobility by adding a small movement speed to the creature (so that it can't simply dodge the nukes by walking out of it) and adding Nebulous Call to the Prelati's Spellbook to allow creature to teleport with ease. The second change we made is reducing the summoning damage AOE greatly to reduce Caster (4th)'s zoning ability while reducing the summoning time by 1 second (on attribute) to actually make Caster (4th)'s actively use it during a combat.

Lastly, we wanted to make Caster (4th)'s gameplay a lot richer. Right now, most of his spells seem very disjoint mostly due to their cast times and mechanics. By reducing the cast time on Emberstorm, corpse explosion on demon, we're anticipating to see Caster (4th) perform a lot more connected combos such as Blink-C-Q-WQ-E, making Caster (4th)'s active combat play a viability.

We realize this is a lot of changes we're making to Caster (4th), so we plan to monitor how the balance takes off and adjust him as necessary at least for first few patches.
