Atlas Souldance Season Announcement - Official Discussion Thread

So the issue here is that Crom and Kasima are significantly better than Antonius.

Crom provides 18% Atk and 23% HP alongside a 10% construction bonus.
Kasima provides 16% Atk and 20% HP, alongside 10% HP and ATK in two flaks of your choice.

Antonius provides 3.5% ATK and 10% HP to all towers. As well as 7% ATK and 10% HP to your choice of Earth Flak or Storm.

This makes him strictly worse than Crom or Kasima. If you wanted earth flak boosts you would get Kasima. If you wanted to general boosts you would get Crom.

Additionally I am not convinced that boosting the earth flak is the way to go anyways. While you do want the earth flak to tank as much damage as possible, its often one of the first targets for death gaze style spells, which renders any extra HP you put into it kind of moot.

If you wanted to make Antonius better I would think the way to go would be to slightly boost the first tower attack node to be something more like 7-10% Attack (most players go for HP over attack with defensive riders, its usually better to have a tower survive an extra hit and get a second attack off, then deal a slight increase in damage). Then massively increase the total boost you can get for your earth flak to something like +15% earth/Storm Atk, +20 or 25 Earth Flak HP.

That makes this rider a more interesting choice. You can significantly boost one important tower on your base, that you want to survive for a long time in favor of reducing the power of the rest of your towers. I don’t think I personally would go for this rider, but at least there would be a use case and a reason to go for it, whereas right now the rider is just strictly worse than existing defensive riders.

I would say Crom is the reference to beat.

You can build him as you like:

  • +18% Tower attack / +23% Tower HP / +8% Sheep farm production
  • +18% Tower attack / +17% Tower HP / -10% Building upgrade time / +8% Sheep farm production
  • +12% Tower attack / +23% Tower HP / -10% Building upgrade time / +8% Sheep farm production
  • +28% Tower attack / +13% Tower HP / +8% Sheep farm production
  • +22% Tower attack / +13% Tower HP / -10% Building upgrade time / +8% Sheep farm production

Give me something better than any of those configuration and I can be interested. If not, what’s the point in getting the new rider?

I think a rider with lower tower buffs (or without any with let say -25%) would be fine, if it had for example a minus 15 -20% building upgrade time!

This still does nothing, might as well put +1% food production there.

Now if they wanted to make this one interesting, put in +150% storm attack, then it opens up new options, while still being pretty balanced.

Two-week rounds are funny, considering one week is always going to be PvP. So, one week rounds basically.

Don’t forget maintenance bubbles too

Courage in your heart: confirmed.

We’re looking at the number of teams to be added and are considering adding a few more league subdivisions to it. We’ll post an update once we have a decision.

The current number is 0. If you go to P2, still 0. If you go to P3, I think it’s 21.

let them do their job :face_with_hand_over_mouth::face_with_hand_over_mouth::sweat_smile:

Personally I would have kept quiet then asked the question again when they announce that “ALL OF P2!! WILL HAVE ATLAS! ISN’T THIS THE BEST!?”

Can the update be before the cutoff date? Give a chance for teams to push if they want.

@PGEggToken can we please get an answer to this from the designer/s of the rider?

I’d really love to get some insight (as I’m sure many others would) into the designers intent on this rider given the skill points and stats available.

I would just like to see the stats buffed. :joy:

You are just killing me - we dropped down to Gold 1 for PVP during discount season, and haven’t moved back up to P4 yet …

The new Atlas rider is, how do I say it nicely - underwhelming.

Any good rider will not have Lumber and Farm Production as a prerequisite for advancing in the skills tree. In this case, we are now forced to select both. lol.

At some point we need a rider with a -15% construction time or better.
