Elite 2.7 Released

Postby Atlas » Fri 12 May, 2017 11:39 pm

Took a while, but we're good! There's a couple of minor bugs in here, but nothing that will break the game. The full installer is not ready to go just yet, so for now it'll only be the 2.6.1 to 2.7 installer. Let us know what you think! We've already got a couple suggestions to put in for a 2.7.1 patch, so for those of you who didn't get suggestions in on time you have another chance.

As always, a lot of the credit goes to Myrdal and Wise Windu, who helped out a lot in figuring out how to implement these changes. Torpid and Atlas reprise their roles drafted most of the non-OM changes and handling OM respectively. Otherwise, thank you to the community for pointing out bugs here and there and providing the feedback needed!

I myself felt it was unnecessary to move vortex to t1 but if the thing is gonna stay, it needs to be toned down even in intended state. No other disruption ability allow u to actually move the point of impact after it is casted. Jump assaults, grenades, and any other means forces u to cast it on a location and it doesn't move. In comparison, vortex is the only disruption ability that move quite fast and last long too before it blows up making it impossible to dodge in many cases.

Also on capping units. I don't think capping is a bad solution in every circumstances. Yes, surely it is a lazy way to balance things out if you do it indiscriminately but it can be a good tool to use when a unit is op in team games while it is not in 1 v 1. In certain cases, some units are op in team games because you can get multiple of them out without being punished by getting covered by teammates while in 1 v 1 one will be severely punished in map control and tech disadvantage and various other harassment that exploits heavy investments into that unit. In cases like this, capping can be a good option to keep the 1 v 1 balance at the intended state without harming team game balance since unit stats stay the same.

Is there anyway to get the Elite Mod to work on MacOS? I no longer have a PC but I would really like to get involved with the community and game that I love.
