Change Log

Patch 2.6.0

  • Buff: increased the Aura-reveal ranges to 64/96/128 metres.

It should be noted that changing Tier III's range from unlimited to 128 metres is not a nerf:
With the rare exceptions of some corner-to-corner distances on the largest Maps, no two points are further apart than that distance and the 128 metres will suffice.


Trivia

  • On the Developer's old website, Empathy was featured with a different flavour text: "Just stay there. I'll come for you!"
  • Up to its buff in Patch 2.6.0, the unlimited range of Tier III was actually just a very large number in code, specifically 9,999,999 centimetres (nearly 100 kilometres or 62 miles).
    This was changed to a much more reasonable 128 metres, which covers nearly all Maps just fine, as such large numbers tend to cause performance issues.

Name Trivia

  • Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of others, making it an essential human trait.
