Hi folks!

As some of you may be aware of, I have started to work on new content (as in completely new maps and not hard mode versions). Upon playtesting I realized there was a problem: some of my units had started to snowball big time. Rather than just increasing enemy quantity I’d like to increase enemy quality, and in order to have more control over that, as well as aforementioned snowball effect, I’m going to do some re-balancing. Basically I’m going to decrease enemy levels and in doing so decrease the amount of EXP you can get. There might be some changes to enemy stats as a result, but it shouldn’t be anything too major.

I think that’s enough of my rambling. Here’s a little glimpse on a map I’ve been working on:
