Following on from my earlier post, here’s some more challenge options coming to Epic Battle Fantasy 5. These were all requested by players:
Counter Attack: Most foes have a chance of using a unique counter-attack when hit.
(this one’s probably the most interesting of them all, and adds strategy)
Surprise Attack: Foes attack first in battle, and at the start of each wave.
(this is horribly luck-based)
Offensive Foes: Foes have 30% more attack power.
(On Epic that’s 200% x1.3, so a massive 260%)
No Grinding: Foes do not respawn, and backup foes called in battle do not give any EXP or AP.
(the game is balanced around this already, but now it’s official)
No Free Revives: Dead players are not automatically revived after battle. Can be useful for solo play.
(this one’s not much of a challenge on it’s own, but is a useful option if you WANT players to stay dead)
And here’s a video of me and Ronja in the Särkänniemi amusement park in Tampere.
The Hype and Tornado coasters were very cool, but that pendulum ride was insane. There’s some rivalry between Särkänniemi and Linnanmäki about which park is better and more intense, and it’s hard to judge since both parks have completely different rides and are a similar size. Both are definitely worth going to if you’re ever in Finland.
