  • Introducing “Champion Skins”
  • “We are reorganizing how we package our Skin cosmetics in order to accommodate players seeking full outfits. Players will still be able to equip parts individually and mix & match as they like. But Accessory and Body Pieces (along with Voice Packs when available) can now be acquired together as a unit referred to as a “Champion Skin”
  • Champion Skin
  • Accessory
  • Body
  • Voice Pack (included with Epic and above)
  • New Match Lobby presentation.
  • All team members Champion models now show on pedestals.
“We feel that this is a great way for players to get a better sense of their team composition and to show off their skin of choice.”
  • Toggle Auto purchase items option added.
  • Introducing Uncommon rarity tier for Customizations
  • Skins Moving into this Rarity
  • Tyrant (Drogoz)
  • Beast (Grohk)
  • Monarch (Bombking)
  • “This new rarity will include premium recolor skins where you will see entire color scheme and texture changes instead of the single, primary color shift you see with the Common tier.”
  • Price discount now given for bundle when already owning pieces.
  • Removed Disenchant from Legendary and Gold Cards.
  • “After the ability to disenchant cards was introduced we noticed players were playing less champions than before as they were now disenchanting legendaries for champions they had not yet played. We want to preserve legendaries as powerful and valuable assets to the game and keep them as something that encourages players to play a variety of champions.”

  • Increased volume of purchasable announcer packs.

  • “With the release of the Bomb King announcer pack we got feedback that Bomb King didn't sound like himself. We had altered the process on his voice to be more clear and distinguished to assume the announcer role, but we realize that this move may have jeopardized qualities of his voice that people recognized. We have taken another pass at his voice to bring it more in line with the standard Bomb King Voicepack.”

Champions - Balance/Updates/Fixes

Champion Androxus Icon.png Androxus

  • Legendary Cards
  • Dark Stalker
  • Increased the recharge rate of dashes by 1s.
  • “Dark Stalker is a lot of fun, because of the increased mobility and versatility, but Androxus always felt like he had one more dash. With this change he'll have to be a little more careful.”
  • Cards
  • Power of the Abyss
  • Reduced the Cooldown reduction from 25/50/75/100% to 20/40/60/80%.
  • “Power of the Abyss was offering too much added mobility and allowed Androxus to never be vulnerable. Now if he ends Nether Step with reversal, there will be a small window before he can escape again.”

Champion Drogoz Icon.png Drogoz

  • Ability Thrust.png Booster
  • Reduced recharge rate by 17%.
  • “One of Drogoz's key strengths is his ability to stay in the air, this change allows him to stay airborne for just as long, but when he does hit the ground he'll have to wait a bit longer to take flight.”
  • Legendary Cards
  • Fusillade
  • Reduced direct shot bonus damage from 50% to 35%.
  • “Fusillade was always meant to be about awesome damage if you can land the shot. With the recent networking improvements made to Drogoz, this damage became a little too consistent.”

Champion Grohk Icon.png Grohk

  • General
  • Champion Price reduced from 200 Crystals 5000 Gold to 150 Crystals 4000 Gold.
  • “As we grow our champion pool we will continue to discount some champions over time while new champions will retain their release price for longer.”

Champion Inara Icon.png Inara

  • WeaponAttack Inara Icon.png Stone Spear
  • Firing Stone Spear will now apply a 40% movement speed slow to Inara while firing.
  • “Inara was dealing a lot of damage, but we want to make sure that she isn't chasing people down.”
  • Ability Earthen Guard.png Earthen Guard
  • Now increases healing taken by 60%.
  • “In losing Debuff immunity, Earthen Guard will no longer remove Cauterize. However, this change will allow Inara to get more healing even while under the effects of Cauterize, but also ensure that Cauterize is still useful against her. The two effects will stack additively against each other.”
  • Legendary Cards
  • Mother's Grace
  • No longer grants Debuff Immunity.
  • Now grants CC Immunity.
  • “We're happy with the boost Inara got last patch, but Debuff immunity was confusing and had some strange consequences. Moving to CC Immunity should be more clear without sacrificing much effectiveness.”

Champion Kinessa Icon.png Kinessa

  • Legendary Cards
  • Steady Aim
  • Increased time interval between empowered shots from 5 to 7s.
  • “Steady Aim is about taking your time to land those big shots, this should make that feel a little more natural.”

Champion Ruckus Icon.png Ruckus

  • Ability Hexa Fire Old.png Hexa Fire
  • Hexa Fire Miniguns now act as an inhand weapon.
  • “Originally it was intended that Ruckus's ultimate does not act as if it is a weapon to benefit from items like Cauterize and Wrecker. However, as time has passed we feel it now makes more sense to allow Hexa Fire to have these benefits.”

Champion Seris Icon.png Seris

  • Ability Convergence.png Convergence
  • Reduce the charge rate from dealing damage by 15%.
  • “We felt that Seris was able to charge her ultimate a little too easy through dealing damage, especially when following up after using Convergence. This does not affect her charge rate via healing.”

Champion Willo Icon.png Willo

  • General
  • Increased health from 2000 to 2200.
  • Ability Fae Flight.png Fae Flight
  • Weapon shots fired while in Fae Flight no longer consume ammo.
  • “Activating Fae Flight without reloading first could waste valuable time, now you won't have to worry as you can fire your weapon freely during your ultimate.”
  • Legendary Cards
  • Blastflower
  • Increased the bonus damage per hit from 50 to 100.
  • Now only stacks up to 3 times.
  • “While Willo is not meant to be a duelist, she felt a little too vulnerable in a 1v1. These two change should help her in that situation, especially now that Blastflower gives her more damage sooner.”
  • Scorn
  • Reduced fuse time by 25%.
  • “With this change to Scorn, players opting into a Seedling-focused build should be able to be a little more consistent with their primary ability.”
