Adjustments to balance the rate at which all Survivors are defeated
We’ve confirmed that the balance in the victory rate between Survivors and Raiders is largely consistent with our intended design based on the recent data outlined above. However, since the rate at which the Survivor team is being defeated is slightly high, we’re implementing the following adjustments.

 

Adjustments to the Escape Time Machine

  • Increased the number of escape time machine beacons that appear during the Search Phase when the number of remaining Survivors decreases.

② Adjustments to lessen the victory rate discrepancy between different Raiders.

Adjustments to the Raider “Cell”
  • Decreased the amount of evolution gauge required to progress from evolution level 3 to level 4.
  • Increased the amount of evolution energy gained when Cell’s Passive Skill “Life Absorption” is powered up.

 Breakdown of Adjustments

We have made a number of adjustments to the game’s balance based on the current state of the game.

The main areas of adjustment are as follows:

1. Multiple battle parameters were adjusted to decrease the odds of the Raider being defeated.

2. Several adjustments were made to make fighting during Defense Phase easier in order to prevent the Raider from being unable to react and subsequently losing a match when being surrounded by and fighting against multiple Survivors

3. Changed the time in various systems in order to adjust the rate at which each match progresses, since the Survivors’ speed increases while they level up during a match.

Adjustments to Raider’s Close-Range Attacks
  • The Raider’s Rush Damage has been adjusted to be roughly equal at each level.
  • Instead of concentrating the damage value in the final stage, the Raider’s Rush Damage has been adjusted so that the damage value from each attack increases starting from the first attack. 

       ⇒ The Raider’s Rush will be cancelled by attacks and skills used by Survivors

This will involve adjustments, starting with increasing the number of cases that appear after the early part of a match.

Adjustments to Raider’s Ki Blasts
  • Made it easier to hit targets with Ki Blasts after evolution level 2.

The damage was also adjusted in accordance with different attacks’ damage efficiency and characteristics.

Adjustments to Raider’s Super Attacks
  • Lowered the cooldown time for each Raider’s evolution level 4 Super Attacks (excluding Ultimate Super Attacks)
  • Made it easier to hit targets with the following Super Attacks from each Raider:

Cell Level 3: Gravity Impact

Cell Level 4: All Clear

Frieza Level 1: Death Wave

Frieza Level 3: Crazy Finger Shot

Frieza Level 4: Death Slash

Buu Level 1: Crush Launcher

Buu Level 2: Innocence Cannon

Buu Level 4: Vanishing Ball

Other Adjustments to Raiders
  • Increased the movement speed bonus that occurs when a Survivor is in the middle of the screen while the Raider is locked on to them
  • When a Raider is already receiving a close-ranged attack, reduced the damage taken by the Raider if another Survivor with a low Change Level

executes a close-ranged attack at the same time

  • Reduced the amount of time a Raider’s movement is restricted when survivors use skills designed to impede movement repeatedly. 
Other Adjustments to Survivors
  • Increased the amount of Change Power needed for Change Level 3
  • Decreased the amount that the Survivor’s attack power will multiply when they reach Ultimate Dragon Change (Change Level 4)
Other Adjustments
  • Increased the amount of time needed to install a power key.
  • Decreased the default speed at which the startup system’s gauge fills up.
  • Decreased the speed bonus for the startup system gauge.
  • Increased the speed at which the startup system’s destruction gauge fills up.

DRAGON BALL: THE BREAKERS – Ver. ???

  • Release date: November 10th 2022 (North America) / November 11th 2022 (Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Breakdown of Adjustments

1. Raised evolution speed of Raider “Cell”

⇒ There were many cases where Cell’s naturally fast evolution speed could not be taken advantage of, so his evolution speed has been raised across the board.

 

2. Lowered Raider “Majin Buu” level 1 evolution parameters

⇒ As this Raider had an advantage even at level 1, Majin Buu’s parameters have been adjusted to be more in line with the game’s concept.

 

3. Adjusted to reduce the chances of the Survivor team being defeated early in a match

⇒ The likelihood of Survivors to remain alive at low transformation levels was found to vary dramatically depending on each player’s individual ability, so the overall game balance has been adjusted accordingly.

 

Raised Evolution Speed of Raider “Cell”
  • Slightly buffed the Passive Skill “Life Absorption”.
  • Slightly buffed the Passive Skill “Auto-Evolve”.
  • In accordance with the above, adjusted the gauge amount needed to evolve as well as the rate at which the gauge increases.
Lowered Raider “Majin Buu” Level 1 Evolution Parameters
  • Lowered Ki Blast speed, hit detection width, attack range, and damage.
Adjustments to Reduce the Chances of the Survivor Team Being Defeated Early in a Match
  • Slightly reduced damage taken while in transformation level 1 and 2.
  • Reduced the time required to recharge the Passive Skill “Barrier Auto-Recovery”.

Since the time to recover has been reduced at the base level, the percentage increase from training has been reduced.

 

Adjusted Various Other Skills
  • Increased the cooldown for “Capsule (Single-Wheel Motorbike)”.
  • Increased the cooldown time for “Grappling Device”.
  • Reduced the cooldown time for “Saiyan Pod Remote”.
