Block Drop Balance Update

A Block Drop update is now rolling out to all regions, focusing on speeding up the game, reducing camping, and balancing XP.

Gameplay

  • Added a new anti-camping system. Standing on the same block will cause the block to break faster.
  • Increased the rate that the top layer is removed.
  • All but the final layer will now be removed automatically.

Developer note: We understand these changes change the current meta. However, the main feedback we have been receiving is how slow-paced the games can be. Block Drop is meant to be a fast-paced parkour game, so we're hoping this change will make the game more fun.

  • Added new XP reward for every 150 blocks broken/stepped on.
  • Increased XP given when another player dies (survival bonus) from 3 to 5.
  • Increased XP from collecting a powerup from 2 to 10.

Developer note: Gaining XP has been much slower than anticipated. We hope this will balance the game and make it easier to progress through levels.

  • Added a message telling the victim who hit them with a knockback nemo, so they can plan revenge.

Custom Servers

  • Added toggle to enable/disable anti-camping functionality.

As always, we're watching your feedback and may balance the game further.
