Disney Speedstorm Community Pit Stop – Racer Balancing and Stat Caps

GAME NEWS
Racer Balancing and changes to Racer Stat Caps.

Hey SpeedStars,
Join us as we break down the significant list of Racer balancing changes coming to the game at the start of Season 7. 
To kick things off, we’ll discuss standard balancing changes that will go live in Season 7 and then move onto a more specific issue with Racer stat caps that required several additional stat-based adjustments for Upgrade Level 50 Racers only. 


RACER & SKILL BALANCING

COMMON SKILL: FIRE
• A Racer can only be stunned once by each instance of the backwards activation.
• The stun duration from the backwards activation has been reduced.  

COMBAT STAT, BRAWLER RACER CLASS & STUNS 
The Combat stat in-game directly affects the duration of stuns, whether that be when you stun a rival Racer or when your own Racer is stunned. Our team is implementing changes so Racers getting stunned feels less punishing for players. These adjustments are as follows:

• The duration of a stun for Racers with a low Combat stat will be shorter.
• The speed reduction effect from being stunned has been lowered.
• The duration of stuns received from a Brawler Class Racer Dash has been reduced.
• The knock back effect received from a Brawler Class Racer Dash has been increased.  
 

RACER BALANCING

RACER STAT CAPS & CREW CHANGES

RACER STAT CAPS
As some players started to “max out” their Racers by reaching 5 Stars and Racer Upgrade Level 50, an issue was identified where stat bonuses granted by Crew members were being “capped”.  
After a lengthy investigation by the team, a solution was identified, but it requires re-balancing some stats for Racers at Upgrade Level 50 only. The changes to the affected Racers are listed in full below:

RACER JAFAR
• Top Speed stat has been increased. 

RACER ARIEL
• Handling stat has been increased. 

RACER PRINCE ERIC
• Top Speed stat has been increased. 

RACER KING TRITON
• Top Speed stat has been increased. 
• Handling stat has been increased.

RACER URSULA
• Handling stat has been increased. 

RACER HANS
• Handling stat has been increased. 

RACER OLAF
• Boost stat has been decreased. 

RACER SULLEY
• Top Speed stat has been reduced.
• Handling stat has been increased.

RACER RANDALL
• Boost stat has been increased.

RACER BUZZ LIGHTYEAR
• Handling stat has been increased.

RACER WOODY
• Boost stat has been decreased. 

RACER MINNIE MOUSE
• Top Speed stat has been increased. 

RACER GOOFY
• Acceleration stat has been increased.

RACER CAPTAIN GANTU
• Top Speed stat has been increased.
• Handling stat has been increased.

RACER OSWALD
• Top Speed stat has been reduced.

RACER ORTENSIA
• Top Speed stat had been reduced.

RACER THE BEAST
• Boost stat has been increased.
RACER MULAN
• Top Speed stat has been increased.

CREW CHANGES
The previously mentioned Stat Cap changes gave us an opportunity to review how Crew stat bonuses are applied. Previously, Crew members granted a purely numerical stat bonus, for example, +500 to Top Speed. Going forward, Crew members will now grant percentage-based stat bonuses with the max percentage for each individual stat being +5%. Taking the Top Speed stat as an example, the 5% bonus is tied to the maximum possible Top Speed stat for a Racer.  
These changes also allow us to increase the number of different Racer stats a Crew member can grant bonuses to. This means that Common Crew members will now grant bonuses to 2 different stats, while Rare Crew members will now grant bonuses to 3 different stats.  

We are also making a change to normalize the behavior of Epic Crew members. Previously, Epic Crew members granted a higher stat bonus to Epic Racers than to Common or Rare Racers. From now on, Epic Crew will grant the same stat bonuses, regardless of the rarity of the Racers they are equipped to. 

We are also making some adjustments to the skill bonus granted by the following Crew members:  
• King Louie will now grant a skill bonus to Boost instead of Shield. (The Jungle Book Collection)
• Auto will now grant a skill bonus to Rush instead of Shot. (WALL•E Collection)
• Mrs. Hasagawa will now grant a skill bonus to Shot instead of Hack. (Lilo & Stitch Collection)
• Elephant On A Bicycle will now grant a skill bonus to Hack instead of bomb (Oswald the Lucky Rabbit Collection) 

That’s it for all the balancing changes to Season 7. See you all out on the racetrack!
