Backpack Battles Update Patch Notes 0.9.3 Mar 29

Breakout hit Backpack Battles is still in Early Access, and the developers have released another balance adjusting patch on March 29

The full patch notes for Backpack Battles patch 0.9.3 on March 29 are below:

 

Hi everyone,

Time for more balancing! The last 2 patches brought us closer, but there are still things to do.

While Ranger, Reaper and Berserker seem even, Pyromancer still overperforms despite the previous nerfs. So Pyromancer gets another rounds of nerfs until it is in line with the other three. Don’t worry, Pyromancer players, if this shows to be too harsh, we will buff them back up next week!

For Ranger, Reaper and Berserker we now even out the subclasses, mostly by buffing the weaker ones.
