So, I’m one day deep into the ambitious Winter Update.
Here are my takeaways:
The GRAPHICS! OH MY LORD, THE GRAPHICS! This game is gorgeous, smooth, and it feels almost like a brand new experience. Such an improvement. My mind is blown on this one.
Incursion Dojo. Since some people jump right in without any concept, this is a good place for them to learn the game basics.
Boosts. Now we can buy and store boosts for when we’d like to use them. This is great for when we have the money but not the time.
Skins. LOTS of cool new skins and the unlock skins, while very simple, are also very cool!
Beatrix. Very cool. Although I’ve only used her for three matches, she’s a fun, versatile character with more potential the more you learn her.
OMvTBS: New OPS are always cool. Some ridiculous ops challenges aside, this is fun and challenging.
More loadouts. You can now have a grand total of 30 loadouts so, if you’re crazy like me, you can now have a separate loadout for every character.
Platinum Story Medals. Finally a reason to really replay story mode perfectly. For every platinum medal you get on a story mode mission, you get a legendary pack. #Awesomeness
The new loot system. Don’t get me wrong: is good for what it is, but for me, where all I want is more taunts and skins, losing the faction packs hurts pretty bad.
Individual dojo. Again, don’t get me wrong: PLENTY of chance to experiment here. But I was really going for a Pro Tip tutorial for a lot of the characters.
Bot Battle. I REALLY hope this comes back. I’m not a big PVP player, so this was my chance to get some lore done and legendaries unlocked. Plus, it’s fun to have the PVP environment and not have to deal with premades roaming every where.
As you may have guessed, I haven’t ventured into the new PVP modes, so I cannot speak fully on those, but from what I’ve seen, it sends much more strategy based with draft pick mode.
So, those are my thoughts. All in all, a great update, if ONLY for the improvement in the graphics. Some good and some bad, but overall, I’m happy and will probably play even more now.
