It's yet another thing vertical mobility helps counter but since Max Focus' vertical mobility is complete ass you're outta luck if Ayla gets the jump on you and you can't get a good Jennirks ball off.

Seriously why does he have a pet fish? Is this a reference?

All movement speed items got buffed because when you take the buffed boots, it stacks together. For example rabbit teeth+boots or boots+speedup stealth are * ridiculous right now.

Sidenote, Ksenia got so many buffs this patch and her "nerf" is as hilariously unimportant as scoop's hammer changes. 180 solar cheaper lifesteal, boots being good again, hair blaster is beyond silly and gorge is amazing again. This is why I thought buffing hair blaster like this was a terrible idea, you have a fury blowout problem all over again, she already has 2 other scissor regen items, she doesn't need a third on the most competitive item row out of all characters in the game. Boots + scaled mullet + wraithstone + hair blaster is absolutely stupid on ribbit now, she's perma fast, perma 4 scissors, perma full HP with invincibility on hand from VG. That being said I've come to think of her damage as fine now. I mean if characters like ayla, frog, penny, rocco etc etc etc get to keep their ridiculous "kill you in 1.5s" damage outputs then I don't see a reason to remove her dmg anymore.

Scoop
Hammer is considered a bit overbearing, these tweaks should make the Frozen Hammer skill a bit weaker and also more skillful
-Frozen Hammer, base damage at point blank reduced from 180 to 150
-Frozen Hammer, snare at point blank reduced from 0.4 seconds to 0.2 seconds. (Max range remains at 0.8 seconds).
-Snow shovel, heal reduced from 130 to 115 per target, price increased from 145 to 160 solar.
Replace one of two the mandatory damage items on the Bindings row, to tone down his damage potential and also improve diversity on the row.
-Idol of the Ice Queen, changed to an enemy slow added to the end of Bindings that slows for 2 seconds by 15% at 150 solar per stage, two stages.
-Bindings of Justice, base damage from 200 to 180.
-Banner of the Triple Scoop, damage reduced from 47 to 40 per stage, price reduced from 150 to 130 solar.
Improve the support upgrade as it's considered a bit unreliable
-Holy Cup, range increased by 20%
This upgrade has been very weak for a long time
-Penguin Throne, changed to 33% shielding when charging Bindings for 160 solar.
Toning down a little overpowered upgrade
-Halberd of justice damage reduced from 30% to 25% and duration down from 4s to 3s.

These changes do not increase the diversity of Scoop. On the contrary, since you have both nerfed the bindings and the hammer damage, as well as buffing Holy Cup, people will only use AA Scoop now.

I personally already switched to AA Scoop even before this patch because of the bindings nerf, but now it's gonna be even more present.

We've just released Update 3.4.1, fixing a bunch of bugs:

Quote:
Update 3.4.1
16-12-2016

Spectator mode
-Fixed that live matches would often stop just before the end.
-Fixed that graphs on damage and healing didn’t show anything anymore.
-Fixed incognito players having their name replaced by the development name of the naut they were playing instead of the actual name of the naut.
-Fixed a rare crash in the watch menu when the list of replays was updated.
-Fixed a rare crash when uploading bot data for replays during a match.
-Fixed a rare crash when starting to watch a match.
-Raelynn’s portrait no longer switches to the old character art in the HUD when she dies in replays.
-Renamed “anonymous” to “incognito” in the settings menu to make the naming consistent with how it’s called in the Watch menu (most translations have not been updated yet).

General
-Fixed that a bot would spawn mid-air if a player left while in the droppod.
-Fixed that the Starstorm map wouldn’t show special art during holiday periods (just in time for Christmas!).
-Fixed a rare crash on exit

Image
Max Focus
-Incriminating Dirt, now correctly updates tooltips when bought.
-Fixed strange interaction with cocoon, Max now stays in the air like Chucho on his bike.
-Made the 7 face the right way around more than the wrong way around in Max's Slo-mo shot.

Image
Raelynn
-Changed raelynn's icon in game messages to look like her new promotional art.

Image
Scoop
-Idol of the Ice Queen, fixed price which was meant to be 150 instead of 170 per stage.

Image
Ted McPain
-Grenaide pour homme, fixed that the stun would not cancel momentum.

Image
Vinnie & Spike
-Red bandana, fixed price which was meant to be 170 instead of 220.
-Loanshark, fixed that the 4th bubble was not affected by Yakoiza.
-Loanshark, fixed that it would decrease individual bubble damage.

No idea where else I'd put this but when spectating while searching for a game:

This text is incredibly tiny and can be hard to read similar numbers. Think this could be at least a bit larger?

How do you even smuggle in a bug like that? Isn't it just bad abstraction?

This entire update has had 1 of 3 effects on basically every character.

1. Nerf/Buff that had literally no effect.
2. Literal shotgun blast to the knee NERF.
3. Adrenaline shot to the heart BUFF.

It's not really balancing as much as it is totally changing the meta.
