Thanks for the hard work Ant.

Some very nice and useful changes in the new version such as the regen for monster players, weaker iron maiden, the fixes so players can't switch and use adren from other chars, time limit on pickups (no more running back half a map to get your own adren from 30mins ago^^), experienced healing, auto aim on dragons (pretty sure that will require a nerf on the pet as soon as someone gets it) and the changes to the syringe.

Stuff I don't like, well you know it :) and how are the percentages on this one please?
"Energy Leech's effectiveness is adjusted based on player's health. Less health => less adren. Same as Berserker's damage perk."
half adren for half the hp? or rank based? And if berserker and support now have something like that, where is the one for the protective? less adren for damage if you have a lot of hp maybe?

Yes, the summon dragons deal 75% less damage than before now that they can hit stuff. Definite possibility that they'll go through another nerf once we see them live.

Range for the modifier is from 50% - 105% (can't get lower nor higher).
The ratio is 2:1 (Every 2% health change => 1% modifier change).

Azmodan wrote:where is the one for the protective? less adren for damage if you have a lot of hp maybe?
We have not decided what to do with the Protective's effectiveness based on condition yet. Healing others and self basing it on health seems to be useless (maxed modifier for healing is useless since you're already maxed on health). We were thinking about having the Protective's gain adren for taking damage perk to be affected based on Protective's health, but the skill doesn't seem to be very significant compare to Berserk's Life Siphon or Support's Energy Transfer.

Another thing I got to fix is the DWAssaultMapperTools download. For some reason the redirect doesn't like it. I'll have to do some investigation tonight to see what's up.

So if I did the math right it means at 0 HP i only leech 50% the adren of monsters and at start HP i do 100% and if i booster up to 10% over start HP (440 when start HP was 400) I even get 105%. I still don't get the logic why you thought of that in the first place but it seems like a change that'll spice stuff up a bit (gotta buy more shield now :sclapping: )
Oh yeah one more question, does it only work on the nrg per shot stuff or on the kill related adren too?

And one last thing, why does the Pet-Master only get 3 lvl of the "not hurt my pet" stuff but the
Spirit-Summon-Dude gets invulnerable pets?

The Berserkers were too independent. They did not need healing due to perk and Life Siphon. We want the Berserkers to be more team dependent. So we added the damage perk to influence Berserkers to be more vocal for healing.
Of course the Berserkers thought that's unfair, and there reasoning is justified. We applied the modifier to the Support in response. Once we decide on an ability to modify for the Protective, we'll most likely do the same.

Only for Energy Leech. Adrenaline Surge is untouched.

Support players cannot purchase the last level to save the trouble from wasting their points on the last level. Summoned pets already have resistances. The last level is useless to them since they are immune even at level 3. The spirits do not have resistances, and Protectives need to purchase the last level to make the spirits immune to their owner.

Note: If you have a low level summon monster, then they may not be immune to its owner since its resistances is not high enough.

    -Energy weapons deal lightning damage

  • Protectives will not gain adrenaline when they shoot a Berserker with Retaliation ability.

Changes from April 25, 2012

Major RPG changes:
Level cap is now set at 200. Reasoning: one of the major issues we've been encountering during testing (offline and online and even during live play) is that the level gaps are becoming too great to make it an enjoyable experience for low levels. Low levels will have to wait a very long time while they watch a level 200+ character solo the map (even with the piercing factor included, it's still possible to solo rank III maps if all abilities and attributes were purchased).
Another reason for the level cap: Monster Evolution is about team collaboration and tactics. Setting a limit on the number of items you can purchase forces you to carefully select which abilities you want and how to structure your build. Your character will become more unique than any other character. As for the team collaboration part, team collaboration quickly diminishes if the characters are self reliable. If a Protective can have maxed healing and tanking abilities, why would they need Support's summons to help them to tank, or why would they need Berserker's offensive abilities if they can quickly replenish health. I'll restate that setting a level limit forces the all characters to choose which perfection they want to be rather than having it all.


Because of this, I'm offering a free service to any rank IV players. You can have your account reset while keeping your levels. Your weapon masteries, ranking, and stats will remain. Only abilities and attributes will reset. Abilities that prevents you from purchasing other abilities (such as a class or Summoning root) will remain after the reset. This will only work for Monster Evolution. This offer expires May 9th (that's two weeks after the update).
To send a request, send me an email at Ant@clandw.org



Berserkers have specialization:
They have a new ability called Perpetuating Soul. This ability introduces serenity in a Berserker's lifestyle. In short this will generally increase your defenses for exchange of some offense.
-You may potentially gain an extra life if you die before the person that possesses your life reserve dies.
-Your offense decreases 10% for 10% extra defense.
-Berserker's healing and shield regeneration perk per kill will double its efficiency. Note: Berserker's healing and shield regeneration perk has been halved from previous version. This ability recovers that.
-You can purchase the last three levels in Life Siphon.
-Prevents you from purchasing the last five levels in Trigger Happy.

Purchasing level 11 Trigger Happy will prevent you from purchasing Perpetuating Soul.

Reasoning for this: Just like the other two classes, I'm forcing the Berserkers to carefully choose their perfection/specialty.

MonsterAssaultRPG
  • New ability: Implosion for Support rank IV.
  • New ability: Vigor for Support rank III.
  • New ability: Perpetuating Soul for Berserk rank II.
  • New ability: Monster Vitality for player monsters.
  • New ability: Monster Resistances for player monsters.
  • New ability: Amplify Damage for player monsters.
  • New weapon modifier: Burning Weapons. Deals extra fire damage (1%-2% per modifier). Protects you from pure fire damage (10% per modifier). Overwrites weapon type, you weapon will deal pure fire damage. Modifier range: 1-8.
  • Sacrifice's charge FX will destroy itself when player suicides or enters a vehicle before the explosion.
  • Spirits, Companion Sacrifice, or Perpetuating Soul abilities will not work if player suicides by typing in suicide in console or becoming a dedicated monster.
  • Level cap is now 200.
  • Due to level cap, HighestLevelPlayer is removed from server details.
  • Resurrection events will give experience to players in vehicles.
  • Vengeance charge will destroy itself if player is on blue team (becoming dedicated monster).
  • Experience Trigger now requires players to get some experience points to gain points (prevents idlers from gaining easy experience). These values may be adjusted by the mapper.
  • Awards such as Critical Player and Last Man Standing ignores player monsters.
  • Freeze weapon's slow effect is at 50% efficiency.
  • You must have at least 5 points to gain resurrection events bonus even if you are already alive.
  • Summon raptors are now doing 50% damage instead of 67%.
  • Damage weapons now deal 5% per modifier instead of 10%.
  • Since damage weapons have been reduced, Infinite weapons now deal 2% extra damage per modifier instead of 5%.
  • You must be on the ground to cast Armor Supremacy or High Metabolism.
  • Sacrifice does not work in vehicles.
  • You cannot cast Life Cord on monsters.
  • Summon Spector will not resist physical damage.
  • Life Cord damage ratio ranges from 0.5 - 3 instead of 1 - 3. Protectors also gain threat for taking damage for the other player instead of just casting the spell.
  • Summon spirits have dynamic threat level based on ability level.
  • Reduced cost for Enhanced Adrenaline Pickups (startingCost = 2, CostAddPerlevel = 1)
  • Berserker's healing and regenerate shield per kill perk will recognize the player's rank when riding vehicles.
  • Berserker's healing and regenerate shield per kill perk is reduced in half. You may get back to full strength by purchasing the Perpetuating Soul ability.
  • Berserker must get Perpetuating Soul to purchase the last three levels in Life Siphon.
  • The inventory item that gives you temporary god mode after being resurrected by a spirit or a companion: you will lose your god mode when you enter a vehicle.
  • Damage cap for Berserker's retaliation is 100 per hit. So that one-shot kill monsters don't kill themselves.
  • Poison resistant monsters can resist the poison damage from poison weapons.
  • Removed MP5 from weapon mastery description.
  • Berserker's Fury damage + double damage from pickup will result in amplified hp and adrenaline cost. Current modifier is X3.
  • You cannot see your aura effects while being in first person view.
  • Berserker's sacrifice will spawn a particle effect for every monster that was affected within the field.
  • Protective's Enahnced Health Pickup ability now references the Summoned Medkit's current healing amount rather than the Medkit's default value.
  • Medkits are now green.
  • The following abilities have new artifact icons: Summon Spector, Life Burst, Healing Sphere, Cry of Repulsion, Medic Weapon Maker, Infinite Weapon Maker, Reloading Weapon Maker, Weapon Enchantment, Weapon Forger, Enhanced Armor, Summoning artifacts, and general Weapon Makers. These icons are imported from MM's DWRPG.
  • Trans mechanic visuals now works online.
  • Extra Health ability has been removed.
  • RequiredRankings array is now implemented in PromoteRanking ability's defaults. Although this doesn't do anything, it looks good.
  • Experience Triggers no longer gives experience to dedicated monsters.
  • Adrenaline pills summoned from a Support character will consider if it should disappear or not if another Support character picks it up. Fixes the "Lost Energy" issue.

The level cap is a bold move and I like it. It should allow each 200 level character to be different from each other. I assume that you can no longer purchase anything once level 200 is reached. It makes each one of us different in a way that we would now have to choose more wisely in what we want in a character.

Why a level cap?? If a 200 level player cannot level up why would he still play?? I don't understand this logic, if you want to put a limit on character's strength, why not using better realistic caps on skills and stats. In my opinion every class should be able to get everything maxed, we simply need to make things in a way that a maxed character CANNOT be a god.

Take the Beserker for instance, I understand that a 500 level Beserker could have 800 ammo bonus and wouldn't need any support help at all, but why not putting better caps on that stats instead? I think Max ammo should be at 300 at rank 4, not 800!! What's the idea of having so much ammo anyway if there is a cap on level preventing anyone, with common sense, to go up to 800!! That just doesn't make any sense! Same for Retaliation, that skill cost so much, who would be stupid enough to go waste so much point for so little reward?! Reducing it to max level to 5 instead of 10 and reduce the cost of it would fix any OP issues there.

My idea here would be to still be able to level but with better caps on skills and stats. If all skills and stats are CORRECTLY and REASONABLY capped, then there is no need for a level cap, and this is way more logical then the level cap solution. The result would be the same has if the caps was on level, the only difference is that high level player would still have a reason to play and even if you cannot purchase anything because you are all maxed, it is still stimulating to gain level.
I got the reflex of the fly, now catch me if you can!
