Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite Fixes
List of Changes to Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite
- Improved Matchmaking
- Decreased Shield and Armor on Maliwan Deathsphere
Improvements to the Takedown's matchmaking have been improved. The game will not transition the player into the Takedown until a party of four is formed. This was done since the devs believe that players would prefer to do the raid with a full party, and would not mind the extra wait time.
Change Will Be Monitored
The change to the matchmaking will be monitored by the devs. Based on what they observe, changes will be made to the matchmaking service as necessary.
Maliwan Deathsphere Adjustments
Deathspheres are now harder to track and shoot down thanks to their improved navigation. In order to balance this, their shields and armor were decreased to make them easier to shoot down for players.
