Balance

General

CDR Formula Adjustment

Currently, CDR’s value stacks exponentially the more CDR you purchase. This creates a couple problems, such as CDR needing a fixed cap to make sure that CDR stacking is not too powerful as players get closer and closer to 100% CDR. To fix this issue and to open more diverse build options to players, we have decided to change the formula and use a more linear approach, like our Armour system currently uses. This means that for every CDR you now purchase, you should be gaining 1% faster cooldown. This also means that players should now be able to exceed the 40% CDR cap that was in place before, with about 65 CDR in the new system equalling out to 40% in the old system.
New Formula:

Cooldown = Base Cooldown x (100 / (100 + CDR))

Favor Mini-Rework

The current Favor system's value is increasing exponentially with the amount of completed items the player has, leading to the system feeling underwhelming in the early game and spiking too hard on certain roles later into the game. To fix this issue, we are moving to a more linear system that should give the player the same amount of stats, no matter what time it is in the game. Being able to use Favor leads without items should also increase the importance of getting Raptor early, as the Favor given to each ally can be used immediately to effect their power level in the game.
