Patch Notes for #DragonballFighterZ Version 1.11 Balance Update

A balance patch for Dragonball FighterZ launched alongside the latest two additions to the roster, Base Goku and Base Vegeta.

As promised by game producer Tomoko Hiroki, this patch targets the entire roster barring four characters that are to be considered the standard for game balance: Goku Black, Adult Gohan, and the regular Super Saiyan forms of Goku and Vegeta.

This patch is available for the Playstation 4, Xbox One and Steam (PC) versions of the game. If you have not turned on your console/PC before yesterday, then you should be prompted to download a Version 1.11 update the next time you log on.

We'll first provide a brief overview of the changes applied to game modes in Dragonball FighterZ. To begin with, when playing Ranked Match, you have the option to set the game to search for opponents that share your rank, are ranked higher, or are any rank whatsoever. A similar feature has been applied to Casual Match. The trade-off, however, is that network color (which determines the stability of your connection to your opponent) will no longer be displayed when an opponent is found.

The option to add input delay, which is the measure of how much time it takes for your controller inputs to be recognized, to Local Battle has also been put into the game. Furthermore, while at the versus screen, you can hold either the L1 or the L2 button (or LB or LT for Xbox One users) to change your leading character before a match starts.

Adjustments have also been made to the DBFZ training mode to expand upon options for practicing specific situations you encounter against opponents. These include the addition of training options (ex: Reset Damage Information) and settings for specific characters.

Finally, see below for a brief look at the balance notes from today's update. The full notes can be reviewed at this page from Bandai Namco's European website.
