    Yeah, kinda dumb that you fixed the reach without including race changes. I've got the money sitting right here, take it.

    i'm a bit out of touch; what was the issue with female character reach? race reach differences were obvious, but i don't recall females being preferred for anything outside of being thinner, taking up less screen space & having smaller hitboxes.

    Plenty of talk about human females being the strongest race due to their reach vs hitbox compared to males.

    We'll be having a follow up patch later in the week after we monitor this where we will go into the exact specifics of it.

    TL;DR Alfar reach was bugged and female character was always preferential.

    Yeah what was changed exactly with female characters? Hope they got a very very slight nerf to reach so males/females are more balanced now.
    --- Post updated ---
    I dont think females had more reach than males.

    Alfar have been buffed a bit, females calculations are now done correctly, but the results we get for them are not applied yet (currently female reach = male reach. There were bugs in female reach calculations that we fixed). We are waiting on finishing balancing before deciding if female reach will be shorter or not.
