Overview of Resolved Bugs
The following are fixes for previously announced issues:
  • Fixed an issue with the Transphere Super Attack “Spirit Ball” where subsequent attacks did not activate if the initial Ki Blast did not hit the Raider.
  • Fixed an issue where, when using the Floating Device to ascend while transformed with the “Shapeshift (Bat)” active skill, the time the player was able to ascend at an increased speed was longer than intended.
  • Fixed an issue where players could not ride a Floating Device placed on the field while transformed with the “Shapeshift (Hand)” active skill.

  • Fixed an issue where using the active skill “Power Unleashed” while Dragon Changed at Level 1-2 with the passive skill “Resistance” equipped will cause the effects from Resistance to reactivate after the additional Dragon Change granted by Power Unleashed ends and the player reverts to the previous Dragon Change.
  • Fixed an issue where the audio for custom voices did not play on the Dragon Tier screen.
  • Fixed an issue where, in rare instances, a super transphere would fall into an area that had already been destroyed.
  • Fixed an issue where Great Saiyaman Suit (with Sunglasses) could unintentionally be selected as a costume with Transphere: Gohan (Adult, Beast), causing the player to be unable to proceed to the match, as that costume should not be equipped with that transphere.
  • Fixed an issue where the game would soft lock under the following circumstances:
    1. Selecting the Great Saiyaman Suit (with Sunglasses) as a costume with Transphere: Gohan (Adult, Beast).
    2. Opening the BATTLE SETTINGS screen and moving the cursor over the Gohan (Adult) transphere with the above costume selected. This causes the avatar preview to no longer change.
    3. Closing the menu and reopening the BATTLE SETTINGS screen after the avatar preview stops changing as described above.
Raider Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where the slashes from Raider Zamasu & Goku Black’s Evolution Stage 1 “Instant Severance” Super Attack would launch in a different direction from the targeted Survivor and miss them.
  • Fixed an issue where, when Zamasu was called by Raider Zamasu & Goku Black’s Evolution Stage 2-3 passive skill “Justice on My Side” and lost track of a Survivor near a destroyed area, Zamasu would begin moving towards the destroyed area and then stop moving when coming in contact with an impassable boundary.
  • Fixed an issue where, when Raider Zamasu & Goku Black Evolution Stage 3 attacked a Survivor who was using Dragon Change with a close-range attack, the damage dealt would be inconsistent.

  • Fixed an issue when leveling up during a match would cause the third page of the results screen to not display the newly updated level up values.

  • Fixed an issue with Traditional or Simplified Chinese Survivor names being displayed for Friends, or on the SOCIAL screen for players who have received a friend request, as the default SURVIVOR name.
  • Other minor bug fixes.
Changes and Bug Fixes Concerning Balance
  • Adjusted the Transphere Super Attack “Spirit Ball” so that when the attack is used while locked on to the Raider, and the Raider performs a long-distance movement (e.g., via area destruction), the attack will no longer pursue the Raider.
  • Adjusted the Transphere Super Attack “Final Explosion” so that when the Raider is hit by the attack and remains within the attack area, the next attack will be slightly slower.
  • Made the following adjustments to the Transphere Super Attack “Heat Dome Attack” to prevent two or more Survivors from repeatedly cycling the same attack to trap the Raider:
    └Reduced the duration of the knockback and changed the direction that the Raider is sent flying by the final Ki Wave of the attack.
    └Adjusted the duration of the knockback when Raider is sent flying by the final Ki Wave of the attack so that it is not reactivated when hit by additional Ki Waves from the same attack.
  • In order to prevent an unintentionally high reduction in damage from passive skills such as “Godlike Speed”, the calculation for the overlap between skills with similar effects has been changed to be multiplicative instead of additive.
Future Fixes

The following will be corrected in a future update. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused. We kindly ask for your patience until the fixes have been made.

    • There is an issue on the Nintendo Switch™ version where the game may crash once a match is found during matchmaking.

    └Transphere Super Attack “Gigantic Charge”
    └Transphere Super Attack “Apocalyptic Burst”

  • Adjusted the active skill “Shapeshift (Missile)” so that proximity to the lava on the DANGEROUS GROUND battlefield will no longer revert the effect of the skill.

  • Fixed an issue where the game would allow players to move to interact with objects during certain damage reactions after being hit with certain attacks, such as the Solar Flare.

    1. Selecting the Great Saiyaman Suit (with Sunglasses) as a costume with Transphere: Gohan (Adult, Beast).

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.

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.

 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.

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”.
