Champions - Balance/Updates/Fixes

General

We have slowed how fast you will charge your Ultimate, but have increased the strength of many of our current Ultimates. We want each Ultimate to feel more like an event that allows you to do something you don't normally get to do when playing each Champion, rather than feeling like a standard ability.

  • Improved visual presentation on several of the Ultimate abilities.
  • Reduced the rate at which Ultimate abilities charge up.
  • Champions will now announce the use of their Ultimates with unique voice lines.

Champion Barik Icon.png Barik

WeaponAttack Barik Icon.png Rifle

  • Reduced damage from 375 → 360.

Champion Buck Icon.png Buck

WeaponAttack Buck Icon.png Shrapnel Cannon

  • Reduced damage from 60 → 52 per hit.

Champion Cassie Icon.png Cassie

Ability Scout.png Scout

  • Now reveals Stealth.

Champion Evie Icon.png Evie

Ability Blink.png Blink

  • Now performed in 1P.
  • Reduced pre-fire delay from 0.4 → 0.2s

Ability Ice Block.png Ice Block

  • Increased duration from 2 → 3s.

Ability Ice Storm.png Ice Storm

  • Increased damage from 50 → 150 per hit.
  • Reduced the size of the inner projectile by 60%, ensuring that the storm now gets stuck on corners less often.
  • Reduced Movement Slow from 60% → 50%.

Champion Fernando Icon.png Fernando

Fernando's main strength is his Shield, and so this patch we focused his tankiness more towards the use of his Shield rather than with flat defense. Many of his strong defensive cards have been refocused or reduced, but his Shield strength has been drastically increased to match this style. We have also brought in Fernando's range and reduced his damage to reinforce his tank role.
General

  • Reduced Health from 4000 → 3500.

WeaponAttack Fernando Icon.png Lance

  • Reduced range from 49 → 40.
  • Reduced damage from 33 → 31.
  • This weapon no longer uses a reload. Instead it uses an Overheat System. Firing Overheats the weapon, and not firing for a short time will cool it back down. If the Overheat bar drains fully the Weapon Overheats, incurring a long recharge period.

Ability Shield.png Shield

  • Increased Health from 2500 → 7500.

Champion Grohk Icon.png Grohk

Grohk's weapon damage output has been reduced, and with the introduction of overheat he will play a bit differently. However, since Ultimates will now charge slower, Tempest needed to be brought up to match the strength of some the other Ultimate abilities.
WeaponAttack Grohk Icon.png Lightning Staff

  • Reduced damage from 40 → 36.
  • This weapon no longer uses a Reload. Instead it uses an Overheat system. Firing overheats the weapon, and not firing for a short time will cool it back down. If the overheat bar drains fully the weapon overheats, incurring a long recharge period.

Ability Chain Lightning.png Chain Lightning

  • Now has no Cooldown, but consumes additional ammo to use.

Ability Tempest.png Tempest

  • Improved visual presentation of this ability.
  • No longer applies a Knockback.
  • Now deals 215 damage every 0.3s to a random nearby target.

  • Fixed an issue where Tempest would not damage Shields.

WeaponAttack Pip Icon.png Potion Launcher

  • Reduced damage from 375 → 360.

Champion Ruckus Icon.png Ruckus

Ability Dual Fire.png Dual Fire

  • Now has no Cooldown, but consumes additional ammo to use.

Ability Hover.png Hover

  • Hover now activates instantly.
  • Reduced Hover height to 4ft.

Champion Skye Icon.png Skye

Time Bomb has been increased in size and effectiveness given that it is avoidable. Short Fuse has been removed, meaning we can make Time Bomb more effective without the need to pick Short Fuse. Additionally, by strengthening Skye's Stealth reveal prevention and allowing Smoke Screen to be thrown helps Skye move about the fight more effectively.
WeaponAttack Skye Icon.png Wrist Crossbow

  • Increased damage from 110 → 115.

Ability Smoke Screen.png Smoke Screen

  • Smoke Screen is now a thrown projectile allowing Skye to deploy Smoke Screen from range.

Ability Hidden.png Hidden

  • Increased damage threshold required to knock you out of Stealth from 1000 → 1200.
