    Hey Mayhemians,

    It was brought to my attention recently that some of you feel that MCInfected 2.0 currently seems unbalanced. We decided to take your input and make a whole bunch of changes to the different infected classes, as well as some prestige perks to ensure that MCInfected 2.0 is more balanced. We hope that this update will make way for better and more enjoyable gameplay for all players, no matter their level, global rank, or time played.

    As with any balancing update, it's difficult to know the full affect of the changes that are being made. We ask and would really appreciate it if you guys gave us feedback regarding the update after you've given it some time. We're happy to continue making tweaks do different features to improve the experience you all have on MCInfected 2.0. I'd like to thank everybody who provided input on what needs balancing. Thanks to you guys, we were able to solve a bunch of balancing issues that would have taken much longer if we were to make this balance update on our own.

    Also, the pig companion is now added for all players who were prestige 10+ at the time of our Master Prestige update a month and a few weeks back. Check it out!

    Here's the change log for the update:
    • Reduced the amount of particles Firemind spawns
    • You can no longer use Firemind in spawn
    • If you die and respawn with Final Stand while using Firemind your Firemind will stop spreading fire
    • Added the Pig Companion for players that were prestige 11+ before the Master Prestige
    • Witches can no longer get Instant Damage potions
    • Witches paths have been changed
    • Iron Golem's Tank path no longer gives hearts when you get a kill
    • Iron Golem's Tank path now gives Absorption when you get a kill
    • Iron Golem's Tank path now gives less Resistance when you get a kill
    • Iron Golem's Iron Shield path's damage reduction percentage has been reduced
    • Removed Titan's Chainmail Helmet
    • Increased the amount of rage needed to Transform as Titan
    • Decreased the amount of time you are Transformed for as Titan
    • Wither Skeleton's Wither and Skulls path have had their Wither duration changed
    • Blaze's Blaze rod now deals +3 Attack Damage
    • Increased Blaze's Fire Bomb cooldown
    • Decreased Blaze's Flame Shield damage reduction
    • Decreased Blaze's Flame Shield fire protection length
    • ZPower no longer works with Mother Zombie
    • As Enderman if there are less than 60 seconds left or if there is less than 20% of the survivors remaining you will not use your normal teleport ability. You will throw an enderpearl instead
    • Were Wolf's Wolf Howl V now only spawns in 3 wolves
    • Were Wolf's Wolf Howl now has a fixed radius of 6 blocks
    • Were Wolf's Weakness path was changed and reworked to the new Silver Immunity path
    • Easter bunny now has Diamond Leggings instead of Gold
    • Scarecrow's Bats from Bat Swarm will not continously hunt for targets if they don't find them right away
    • You can no longer attack Scarecrow's bats while Infected
    • Scarecrow's Fright path now lasts 1 second
    • Decreased the Headless Horseman's Undead Mount cooldown
    • Decreased the Headless Horseman's Head Throw cooldown
    • Shock now has a Leather Chestplate
    • Shock's Lightning Strike path now does less damage
    • Shock's Lightning Strike path now gives fire at every level
    • Slimes can no longer respawn infinitely because every time they die and respawn the next time they die they will have 1 less minion then before
    • Hardline no longer effects infected scorestreaks
    • Firesale is no longer able to be purchased with prestige tokens, only master tokens
    • Firesale no longer reduces shop prices
    • Juggernaut now gives you Protection II on your chestplate (as a human) and Protection I on your chestplate (as a zombie)
    • Added a prestige menu item to the Rank Viewer
    Thanks again guys. We look forward to what's to come including a new gamemode as well as some other really great updates and changes to launch us into the summer!

    Contradicting everyone else, I like the idea of moving firesale to master prestige only. I can't explain why, I just do.

    With the way firesale was, it would take until 14th prestige for the benefits of firesale to kick in. As a result, we've decided to add firesale as a master prestige only perk.

    That is only by the math tho. The ability to get to Commander quicker was what made the perk one of the best ones to get early on.

    It may seem like it helps but it isn't until 14 prestiges that you earn back the 80k+ cookies through rank discounts it takes to prestige twice in order to get 4 prestige tokens.

    I already see chat blowing up with "Pig omg op af" and "Wow I could only get pig if I started playing before master prestige came out?" and anything similar to that.

    I wouldn't say make pig purchasable, I think it would be cool if it was given to you after you hit master prestige 2 or something like that.

    Or just keep it like it is, that would be fine too since it wouldn't come up with many people.

    Isn't it crazy how much people react to new stuff?

    The pig was a way to show the players that were being hurt my the new prestige system that they went being forgotten and I think that the pig will (and should) stay exclusive. No new players will have to go through losing 1-6 prestige perks because of an update

    It takes a fourth of all that damage. There's no way to heal it. Once it's dead, it's dead.

    Also, instead of freaking out about everything, how about you give some positive feedback too?

    We're more than happy to look into changing the pig companion if we find that it's too strong. Right now, it's way too early to say whether or not it is balanced and if any changes are needed.
