0.853!
« on: January 17, 2016, 06:12:48 PM »
Should be out now, I think.  This time I'm posting about it and sorta vaguely being helpful maybe.

But I'm too lazy to write about it at this moment, so the patch notes are here:  https://arcengames.com/mediawiki/index.php?title=Starward_Rogue:Early_Alpha_Release_Notes#Version_0.853

I really don't like the Blaze Turrets being able to penetrate walls. I can't seem to avoid taking damage when killing them.

They've always been able to do that.

Your sprint button is your friend when dealing with those guys.   It also helps to lead their shots to positions that make it easy to pass them by.

Ya get used to them after awhile.  Besides, there's much worse threats later on.  That cant penetrate anything.

I might knock the turret's HP down a bit further though.

It does seem to be a bit of a bullet sponge, considering how little time you can spend in one spot (at any range) with it around.

I don't find the single shot turret too bad, the ones that shoot 4 I find really annoying.

I've honestly never had any trouble whatsoever with turrets I've always found them kind of trivial honestly.

In some rooms they're easy to work around, on others it can be a pain to get close to them due to either the room layout or multiple turrets.  That's just my $0.02.

Actually, it only has 220 HP.  It originally had way more, but I knocked it down a ton recently.

I suppose that might still be a bit much though, I'll have a look at that.

It's possible my memory is from before the nerf.
