Propsed Changes for Vigilantes V19 Hi again! Several testers have expressed the view that combat takes too long to resolve. We agree, so our first step in the last leg of development will be to improve combat pacing and begin finalising the character system. Here's a summary of what the changes will involve: + Fewer, relatively more powerful enemies in combat: Currently there can be up to 20 characters in combat. The result is long turns, with many enemies getting to act between your characters' turns. + Fewer stat points: The current system of one stat point every level was created with quickly building test characters in mind, and allows for "master of all trade" characters. With less enemies, the player team must be balanced in relation to the opposing force. The ability to build stat increasing facilities will recoup some of these "lost" stat points. + Ally skill points: You will now get some skill points to allocate for your allies, providing better control over their development. + Fewer perk points, but more powerful perks: Underpowered perks is an other issue brought up by testers. We feel less perk points which unlock more powerful perks would be beneficial. If you'd like a more in-depth explanation of the upcoming changes, feel free to check out the below video. We plan to look at combat pacing and the character system in version 19. We've thought a lot about these changes, received a lot of feedback, and while we believe these changes will offer substantial benefit, they are not set in stone. If you have any comments, observations, or concerns, we'd really like to hear from you.
