Firestrike Turret Range Update

Firestrike Turret Range Update

It’s been a few weeks since the launch of Firestrike, and the design team has been poring over battle logs to check how power balance is working out. Commanders are generally achieving stronger results on defense than on offense, limiting the amount of combat and resource looting. In response, we are reducing the range of defensive turret weapons by 10-20% at all levels. (change takes effect today, 2017 January 14).

Battle tip: It is vital to expose your attacking units to as little turret fire as possible. Try to find a path into the enemy base that avoids taking hits from more than one turret at once.

Incidentally, each turret is designed to have the same firepower as five units, with similar upgrades. This is to compensate for the turrets’ lack of movement and targeting control.

Patch Note: January 3, 2017

Happy New Year everyone!

THUNDER RUN, DAYS OF VALOR, and WAR STAR EMPIRE updates:

  • The Hitlist and War Chest will now refresh at the same time each day (1700 GMT). Previously, the refresh was set for 24 hours since your last use of Hitlist or War Chest. This update makes it easier to find a full Hitlist and grab free War Chest items, even if you play at different times on some days.

Firestrike Dev Note: Generators

Firestrike Dev Note: Generators

Generators supply vital power for base buildings and turrets in Firestrike.

A few players have asked about the reasons for the specific stats and levels on Generators. Here is the answer from the design team:

Each Tactical Ops Center (TOC) level unlocks a certain number of Generators, and allows them to be upgraded to a certain level limit. For example, TOC Level 9 allows 3 Generators of up to Level 9 each. The power stats of Generators are designed so that, for each TOC level, a fully-upgraded set of Generators provides just enough juice to power a maxed-out base with all the buildings built and upgraded to the limit for that TOC level. As long as you keep upgrading your Generators along with your other buildings, you should never need to run out of power.

Firestrike Hotfix: December 28, 2016

Firestrike Hotfix: December 28, 2016

Attention FIRESTRIKE players:

  • Generators no longer require Fuel to upgrade to Level 6, and no longer require Hardware to upgrade to Level 11.

This fixes the situation where you reach Tactical Ops Center Level 6 and are unable to build a Fuel Depot or Fuel Yard due to lack of power.

Note, the Supply cost of Generator Level 6 was increased to compensate for the removal of a Fuel requirement. This keeps the designed challenge level for the upgrade the same as before.
