For Honor Update 2.30.1 Patch Notes
Increased death assist to 10 points (was 8)
Developer Comment: Renown gain when defeating an opponent was too skewed based on who dealt the last hit, so we increased the assist reward to compensate for this.
Boost Zone Fame increased to 0,5/s (was 0,4)
Decreased Contest Area fame to 0,6/s (was 0,7)
Developer Comment*: The large gap between boost and contest areas made contesting more appealing than boosting, leading to situations where players preferred to let an area be contested so they could win in fame faster. This effect should be minimized with this change.*
Decrease boosted area points to 1,5/s (down from 1,8)
Increased lane points of captured minions to 1,5/s (was 0,9)
Developer Comment: The first week of testing indicated that matches were on average longer than expected.
During the first week of testing, players focused much more on secondary points than on the minion lane, and as such spent very little time eliminating minions; this led to reduced points gain as teams control the Minion Lane for shorter periods of time. We want players to always view Minion Lane as a good place to earn points and spread out, so this change aims to ensure that Minion Lane is always an attractive place to focus efforts towards.
