Q & A
We hit up some of our devs with questions regarding Firestorm and Chapter 3. (We asked a lot more questions, but you'll have to wait until next week for those answers!) John Stanley, Mattias Hansson, Robert Wyle answered some of the questions below.
When will we see an update to the Looting System?
JS: 3.1 (Next Update) – There will be an increase in loot spread so that its easier to pick up (improve the issue of stacking). We will continue to investigate other designs to make the looting the best it can be.
As the Tides of War Weekly Challenges are tied to Firestorm, what if someone doesn’t want to play Firestorm? Why isn’t there another path/option to get ToW XP?
JS: This is our brand new royale mode and the challenges serve as a great way to introduce you to the mechanics of Firestorm. To complete the Week's Challenges, there is a track which allows for minimal Firestorm play:
Earn 30,000 score in any game mode
Kill 30 enemies in any game mode
Heal yourself or your squad mates for 1000 health
Why is the XP so low for Firestorm?
MH: We've heard your feedback and agree with you. We're looking at balancing this in one of the upcoming updates.
Would you ever make Firestorm a night map?
MH: No plans right now, but that sounds like an awesome idea!
Will you be adding scopes/attachments to the weapons?
MH: This is something that we’re looking into right now, but we’re not ready to share timeline at the moment.
