Economy and Progression

“At present, cards are too difficult to unlock. It's always been our goal to offer meaningful character progression as you play Paladins, but as we have been listening to feedback and monitoring our data, it is clear that the time necessary to acquire cards is too long.

This Patch we will be addressing this issue from a few different angles. Players will be earning chests at an accelerated rate along with lower crafting costs (without a reduction in duplicate values), New avenues to earn essence, and a 60% increase in weekly quest gold rewards. Having a healthy economy is a balancing act and gold costs of cosmetic items and Champions will be increasing.”

Champions - Balance/Updates/Fixes

“This patch, we have focused efforts around our Legendary Cards. We have a healthy variety of choices, but we believe some legendary cards are too strong when compared to the other available options. Additionally, many players have expressed that our hyper-movement based Legendaries are frustrating and not fun to play against. We highly value the experience of our players playing our characters AND playing against our characters. We believe strong and rewarding legendary options are important, and that we can introduce these cards without creating the frustration associated with the hypermobility Legendaries.

We are also taking this opportunity to make changes and improvement to some of our least used Legendary cards. Some will receive buffs, others will be entirely reworked. The legendary system is at it best when all 3 choices are genuine options, and some characters are in a good place! These changes are an attempt to move more characters in that direction, and we'll be keeping a close eye on legendary usage throughout future patches.”
