0.25 - Let It Burn | May 5, 2016

BETA EXPECTATIONS

General

  • Drogoz and Kinessa are now permanently free Champions.
  • The voice lines that play when a teammate is activating their Ultimate have been updated to better represent their involvement to you. Enemies will continue to play the same voice lines as before.
"In our journey to improve clarity and help players identify the highest threat to them during a combat encounter, we have updated the way champions announce their ultimates to distinguish between an enemy ultimate and a friendly ultimate."
  • Fixed an issue where player cameras were detaching if you died in the air.
  • The Solo Practice queue has been removed. The Co-Op queue has been renamed to "Practice vs A.I.".
  • Reduced the accuracy of A.I. bots.
  • Increase the First Win of the Day bonus to 150 Gold. Additionally, this bonus will trigger for the first three wins in the Capture & Payload game mode.
  • Updated the sounds played when mounted.
  • Increased the pre-built deck count to three for all champions.
  • When selecting cards for a Custom Deck, if a card is currently in the deck it will be highlighted across all rarities.
  • Improvements to the in match Burn Card menu that better highlights there are more than one page of Burn Cards to choose from.
  • Added a notification to the Chests tab on the main menu that let's you know you have un-opened Chests.
  • Radiant Chests now guarantee at least one Epic card.
  • In match HUD now always shows your current Credit value.
  • Added Champion portraits to the in match kill log.
  • When viewing a template deck in match, the cards no longer show up as locked.
"Showing current ownership of the card when viewing a template ended up being too confusing, making some players wonder if the cards were active or not. All cards will appear active when viewing a deck in game, with ownership being shown in the lobby only."
  • Players now show their current killstreak next to their name in match.
  • Added a currency icon for Credits.

Spectator

  • Updated to show the status of all players on the screen.
  • All players will now be highlighted with an outline.
  • All players will now show on the minimap. At this time, replays will not show the correct information but it will work for live spectated matches.
  • Updated to show Kill/Death messages.
  • Added an option to disable spectate for Challenge matches.

Gameplay

  • Stealth Grass
  • Updated rules around when players are revealed when standing in grass. Players will now only be revealed if they take action, so abilities like Evie's Ice Block will no longer reveal her for the entire duration. Instead, it will reveal Evie when she activates the ability (took action), or cancels it early (took action).
  • Capture and Payload
  • Updated point scoring system to the following:
  • Now takes 9 Points total to win a match.
  • Earn 2 Points for capturing the Capture Point.
  • Earn 2 Points for successfully pushing the Payload Cart to the enemy base.
  • Earn 1 Point for stopping an enemy Payload Cart push as the defending team.
  • Credits
  • Each player will receive 100 credits for winning a round.
  • Player now accrue credits while pushing the cart at the same rate they would if capturing a point.
  • The Capture Point now spawns before players are able to leave base.
"This change allows players to better strategize before the round begins knowing ahead of time what point dynamics they are facing."
  • Fixed an issue where players would sometimes seeing incorrect messages showing for successfully pushing or defending payload cart.
  • If a defending team member touches the Payload cart, they immediately gain ownership and don't have to wait 2s.
"This rule ensures the defending team only needs to touch the Payload Cart in order to stop it fully without worrying about whether or not it is still in auto-push mode."
  • If no attacking team members are near the Payload cart while it is auto-pushing, it goes at half speed.
"We want to make sure the attacking team still has incentives to stand near the cart and push it, but aren't required to if the pressure is too great."
