Backpack Battles Update Patch Notes 0.9.2 Mar 22

Breakout hit Backpack Battles is still in Early Access, and the developers have released another balance adjusting patch on March 22

The full patch notes for Backpack Battles patch 0.9.2 on March 22 are below:

 

Hi everyone,

It's been two weeks since Backpack Battles released into Early Access. This week, we overhauled the title screen, it's still work-in-progress but we think it’s cleaner already!

Also, it’s time for more balance adjustments. The last patch helped bring the new classes more in line, but especially the Pyromancer was still very strong.

The goal of this patch is to bring Berserker and Pyromancer more in line and to nerf some of the dominant subclasses. We will monitor the effect of these changes and will make more adjustments next week!
