MAPS

Test Map Queue
We want to personally thank all the players who have been playing the Test Queue and giving regular feedback on our maps for testing. We have removed the current maps and added a new rotation of maps, some with major reworks we are excited to hear your feedback on.

  • Ice Mines Redo v2 – Improve payload route. Update and scaled down capture point.

  • Grotto A
  • Grotto B
  • Stride v2 – Update the capture point to improve flow.
  • Removed Undercity and Atrium.
ITEMS


Blast Shields
Blast Shields and Haven provided too much of an easy option against many champions in the game, and with the removal of Aggression doesn’t provide the level of counter-play that we would like. Bringing down the values of both means the Defense tier can lend itself more to Resilience or Illuminate.
Reduced damage reduction from 10/20/30% to 7/14/21%.



Cauterize
Fixed an issue where Cauterize was stacking with other healing reduction mechanics and different ranks of itself. Healing reduction will now take the strongest present value.



Haven
Reduced damage reduction from 10/20/30% to 7/14/21%.



Nimble
Fixed an issue where if a stronger Movement Speed Buff overwrote Nimble, it would deactivate until you respawned.



Veteran
Reduced credit cost from 300 to 200.



Life Rip

  • Lifesteal now correctly works off of exact damage dealt to the target. This excludes damage dealt to personal shields and damage that has been mitigated by Damage Reduction.
  • Lifesteal is now properly reduced by Healing Reduction.
  • You can no longer lifesteal from deployables.
BALANCE CHANGES


DROGOZ
Improved Drogoz’s W.Y.R.M. Jets card performance with high ping.

Salvo:
Salvo has been an under used part of Drogoz’ kit, and we wanted to bring it back into a strong viability. The danger we wanted to avoid was allowing it to deal full damage where it could become an opportunity to burst a target at full Health when it is available. Instead, we are increasing the usability and greatly increasing the size of the explosions to turn it into a strong option against large groups of enemies.

  • Increased explosion radius per rocket by 70%.
  • Reduced the time between Rockets from 0.2s to 0.15s.
  • Increased the accuracy from 90% to 95%.


EVIE

Blink: Improved Evie’s Blink’s root under high ping.



KINESSA

Oppressor Mines: Now affected by Cooldown reduction, such as Chronos.



RUCKUS

Advance: Now affected by Cooldown reduction, such as Chronos.

Advance:

  • Hexa Fire Rockets now count as Area of Effect damage.
  • Improved Ruckus’s Hexafire’s slow under high ping.


TORVALD

Fixed an issue with reload UI clipping into Shield UI.

Gauntlet: Fixed an issue where Torvald’s gauntlet targeting would not target the lower half of his targets.



SHA LIN

Long Bow: Fixed an issue where Sha Lin’s bow would not get interrupted when pulled back, upon getting disarmed.

Planted: Fixed an issue where Sha Lin’s animations would get stuck in the planted state during killcam and spectate.



SKYE

Hidden: Fixed a bug where activating Hidden would remove the speed boost from Victory Rush. The stronger value will now be used.



TYRA

Trail Blazer: Fixed a bug where this card’s description had values of 50/60/70/80% instead of 50/40/30/20%.
