Yeah, no dam some are harder then others, that blobber leader's attack looks like it would end many of my runs.

Every boss is toggleable in Mod Configuration, so you can tailor your run to your preference.

And you keep on delivering with the good times. Although who's good time is relative :lol:

I'm very uncertain about the Blob Leader being something that can be faced; the Spider Leader is already very dangerous but the eggs are usually placed around the boss itself and might be able to be kept under control, whereas Blobber blobs tend to be dropped in locations you don't want them to be and must be taken care of quickly to avoid damage.
I might have it enabled in future runs but if I see it in the lineup, I might just "NOPE!" my way out like seeing a Spider or Goo.

So what plans are there for the Digger and Burrower Boss?

I think no matter when I release, it is always going to be right after you've started a new run.

The Blobber Leader is certainly the scariest one. The mission does come with fewer spawns though, so give it a try if you dare ;)

I've also heared different people say the game is too easy, and too hard. This one is for the former crowd.

I have some notes, but I haven't found anything I like just yet. I might come back to them later.

Mission balance lives and dies on how many building-threatening hostiles you have to deal with on any given turn, so if the Blobber Leader battle has fewer spawns than normal, I for one am entirely willing to give it a try. I'll install this and let you guys know how it goes. Might be a while though, since like with Evolved Vek I can't control whether I wind up seeing these guys or not.

Don't forget the centipede leader! Perhaps it could be like the firefly boss where it shoots in multiple directions?

My first attempt at a Crab Leader went pretty mediocrely - it was certainly nice to have to pay attention to my positioning really carefully again because I wasn't used to how they work.
