Change Log

Patch 3.0.0

  • Buff: adjusted the Regression penalty from a variable 15/20/25 % to a fixed -25 % across all Tiers (total Progression).
  • Buff: increased the window of opportunity to damage a Generator from a fixed 30 seconds to a variable 40/50/60 seconds.

Patch 4.3.0

  • Nerf: reduced the window of opportunity to damage a Generator from 40/50/60 seconds to 35/40/45 seconds.

Patch 6.1.0

  • Nerf: modified the Regression penalty from a percentage of total Progression to a percentage of current Progression.
  • Nerf: reduced the Regression penalty to -20 % (current Progression).
    • This change was motivated by a general change to the Damage Generator action, which now applies an immediate penalty of -2.5 % of the total Progression.
    • It was also motivated by the desire to weaken the Perk against Generators with little Progression.

Patch 7.0.0

  • Buff: increased the Regression penalty from -20 % to -30 %.

Patch 8.0.0

  • Reversal: reduced the Regression penalty from -30 % to -20 % again.


Trivia

  • Pop Goes the Weasel's Penalty is calculated based on the amount of Charges the Generator has left after the initial -5 % are deducted that kicking the Generator removes by default.
  • It should be noted that using Pop Goes the Weasel only counts as adding +1 Regression Event to the affected Generator, as the previous bullet point is only concerned with the calculation of the final Penalty percentage.
