Templar Battleforce v2.6.39: Grenades!

This week, your mighty Templars can throw grenades at any spot of open ground that they choose. It seems like a simple thing, but without it, grenades have been restricted for too long.  Free the grenades!  This new improvement makes grenadier Templars far more powerful and versatile, especially as all grenade attacks only cost 1 AP.

We've also made some tweaks to the balance two shields (thanks @drspendlove). To help sweeten the deal with the story characters Luthor and Nyra, both have received a special relic that they carry into battle. Nyra carries the mighty Renown Kit and Luthor the Bearheart Tact which grants him endless counterattacks.

Finally, we made some more fixes in the combat log to get all the values properly printed and fixed some issues with some of the big bosses in the late game.

Thanks to everyone leaving a review!

Save 50% on Templar Battleforce as v2.6.37 goes live!

Save 50% on Templar Battleforce this week on Steam!

Thanks to all of our players making suggestions, commenting on balance and asking great questions this week!  We've pulled together a weapons focused update, including a new Gear Level 7 Needle Viper for Scouts. The new Needle Rifle cause a ripple of improvements up to the Rubicon Needler, the relic in the class, making it a more impressive weapon for its Gear Level 9 cost. To match the rebalance, the Stealth Naga Rifle has also shifted up to Gear Level 9, where it belonged, with a small increase in stats to compensate for its additional GL cost.  The new Needle Viper is in Stealth Operative 4.

We've added a new Ordnance for the Berserk class, which will resupply the three new Talents that were added at the time that Berserks picked up Dual Axe wielding. This one has been added to "Wrath 5" RQ level.

We've improved consistency with the application of debuffs that drive an enemy's armor negative. If an enemy's armor rating is negative, they recieve an additional +50% Negative Armor in damage (-8 Armor = +4 Dmg). Before this patch, this rule was being skipped for Penetrating hits.  Now fixed, always applied!  Even better!

Thanks to all of our players and thanks for leaving a review!
