Map Changes in The Cycle Frontier
Map Changes: Bright Sand
If you can notice the changes on the picture for the bright sand map, the jungle side is much larger before. Many players consider looting there (jungle) since there are many valuable loots for them to get, which is also a disadvantage for new players.
That is why major changes were apply on the map to create a balance for both new and avid player. On the other hand, the updated map created a huge change on the Tier 1 section as most of the Tier 2 was covered and changed into Tier 1. Thus, the jungle or Tier 4 is lesser than the usual.
Map Changes: Crescent Falls
In crescent fall map, it is noticeable that most of the Tier 2 was changed into Tier 3 which means that there are more better loots and upgraded monsters on this map.
This map has been buffed and most of the Tiers available to loot at are from the average to highest Tier. Some areas were nerfed down to Tier 4, but they added more space for the Tier 5 map loot.
Loots on jungles were moved behind locked doors making it more difficult for player s to knife it out and reach it. Furthermore, due to the changes on the map, looting and monster will also change according to the Tier level on where you are looting at.
