Balance Changes

Survivor Ability
  • We made huge balance changes to Survivor Ability because we wanted Survivors to have a greater impact in Pale Lands. The following is a list of changes to Survivors.
    • The overall stats increased for Survivors, but the overall stats decreased for buildings. This makes it much more important to assign Survivors to their designated buildings.
    • Higher rarity Survivors are now stronger than lower rarity Survivors regardless of their level. For instance, a Common Level 5 Survivor is weaker than a Rare Level 1 Survivor. The order of rarity is Common → Rare → Epic → Legendary.
    • The maximum level of a survivor changed from 5 to 6.
    • Research Category Survivor now directly decreases time rather than percentage of time.
    • The attack range for Survivors increased. This enables them to engage in fights more during combat.
    • The overall UI improved for Survivors’ profile to better display important information. During this process, we changed all the names of Survivors. Please don’t panic!
Defensive Tower
  • Shotgun : Our initial intention with Shotgun was to make it effective against melee zombies. To better facilitate this, we decided to increase the attack range and include the knock back effect back in the game.
    • Max Range : 3 → 4
    • Know Back Effect : Off → On
    • Max Target : No limit → Limit
  • Crossbow Tower : To make the Crossbow Tower a greater threat against small and big zombies, we have increased the overall damage inflicted..
    • Damage : Increased overall
  • Machine Gun : To make the Machine Gun more powerful against approaching zombies, we decreased the amount distance decays the attack power.
    • Damage Decay Per Distance : Decreased overall.
Zombies
  • Giant : Since the 1.8.3 balance update, Giants have reclaimed the throne as the most powerful zombie. But, feel Giants are a bit too powerful. So, we decreased its HP and damage a bit.
    • HP : Decreased overall
    • Damage : Decreased overall
  • Spitter : In order to provide more defensive options against Spitters, we made their range shorter to match with that of Crossbow Tower.
    • Attack Range : 6.0 → 4.9
    • Damage : Decreased overall
  • Crawler
    • Damage : Increased for the earlier levels
  • Bony : In order to provide more opportunities for Spitters in the late gmae, we decreased the overall damage inflicted by Bonies.
    • Damage : Decreased overall
  • Exploder : The overall offensive stats for Exploders was too high relative to their small seat space. To improve this, we decreased their suicide damage and suicide damage radius overall.
    • Suicide Damage : Decreased overall
    • Radius For Suicide Damage : 3.5 → 2.0
Watruck Ability
  • Rocket : Rockets is still the most useful Wartruck ability. However, the damage across all levels was a bit too high, making it easier to destroy multiple buildings at once. So, we decreased the damage overall.
    • Lv 1 : 200 → 150
    • Lv 2 : 260 → 200
    • Lv 3 : 320 → 250
    • Lv 4 : 380→ 300
    • Lv 5 : 440→ 350
    • Lv 6 : 500 → 400
