0.19 - Serpent Temple | March 17, 2016



  • Map voting removed and adding back separate queues for each game mode.
  • Due to our smaller population in early Closed Beta, we introduced the map voting option to keep all players in a single queue in order to maintain short queue times. This also allowed us to gather data on how each mode was doing. As we grow into the later stages of Closed Beta we want to make sure players can now choose what mode they want to play.
  • New Payload Map: Serpent Temple.
  • Capture Only game mode has been removed.
  • Though Capture Only provided some quick fun, based on its performance and popularity along with its similarity to the Siege game mode we felt it was better to remove it.
  • Fixed an issue where players were not able to choose a Mount in Match Lobby.
  • Fixed an issue where renaming a deck would crash the game when players would use certain special characters.
  • Added a feature that allows you to automatically upgrade your cards throughout a match, prioritizing Legendary cards. This is on by default, and can be turned off in the Settings menu or by pressing "U" to view cards.
  • Improved HUD treatment when an ability cannot be used. It will clearly be red and crossed out.
  • Fixed an issue where the Beacon still appeared to be in players hands on respawn if dying while holding it.
  • Fixed an issue where the Beacon UI was showing in Survival mode, where there is no Beacon.
  • Addressed an issue where the spawn gates would be a second or so behind the actual match starting.
  • Addressed an issue with players getting stuck in the ground when spawning into match.
  • Fixed an issue where the Beacon pick up message was missing on the UI when standing on a Beacon.
  • Fixed an issue with a missing Survival death fog horn. The volume on the fog horn will be adjusted in future patches.
  • Fixed an issue in certain conditions with charge abilities that would cause players to get stuck on top of another player's head.
  • Addressed an issue where voice lines were triggered too often, creating voice chatter.
  • Fixed an issue on Glacier Keep where players were unable to step up onto certain windows.
  • Fixed an issue on Glacier Keep where wooden poles near the center capture point were missing collision.
  • Fixed an issue where the client would sometimes crash on shutdown.
  • Fixed an issue where some Champion skins appeared too small in match.


  • Continued polish and cleanup to various attacks, impacts, and skills. Improving clarity and removing legacy particle systems to clear up the battlefield and make visibility clearer.
  • This release addresses the following Champions: Barik, Buck, Cassie, Grover, Grohk, Pip, Ruckus and Skye.


  • Fixed an issue where the Respawn Beacon losing portal effect.
  • Fixed an issue where your respawn timer UI would overlap other elements.
  • Fixed an issue where the health bar for the Siege Engine would persist on your screen, even after the Siege Engine was destroyed.


  • Ultimate abilities no longer charge before the match has begun.
  • Fixed an issue where players were not being able to reload while Disarmed.

Champions - Balance/Updates/Fixes

Since we have removed the passive stat benefits that cards provide, we have rolled that lost damage into the champions themselves, primarily onto their weapons. The bonus Health cards provided was not salvaged. We feel this keeps the damage and survivability of each champion consistent and more reliable to play with and against.

Card Art - Updates

Cards - Balance/Updates/Fixes


The card passive stats were originally implemented to help separate cards based on strength, but unfortunately creates a lot of confusion around which cards are better. It also makes it less clear how much Health and damage an enemy will have in any given match. We feel it is cleaner and more understandable to let the cards usage stand on their own and create decks around synergies instead of raw stats.

  • Cards no longer come with a passive bonus of increased maximum Health and increased damage percent. These bonuses have been rolled into each Champion's base damage.


  • Reduced damage reduction from 35% → 20%.
  • Increased threshold from 500 → 600.
  • Reduced reload time reduction from 50% → 25%.
  • No longer works against damage over time (DOTs).
  • Reduced damage reduction from 35% → 20%.
  • Increased threshold from 75 → 100.
  • Reduced life steal from 25% → 15%.
  • No longer triggered by HP Drops that are triggered from cards.
