Champions - Balance/Updates/Fixes

General

  • Specialty cards have been removed and the most popular components have been rolled into each Champion's base abilities as Bonus Damage.
"While Specialty Cards did provide interesting choices, we feel that applying the most popular benefits to each Champion's abilities will cause Champions to play more consistently and allow for more customization in deckbuilding. This change also allows us to give Champions some of their most powerful and exciting effects back without creating a must-have card. Our goal is to have each Champion to fill a role while having a unique playstyle, and we think this change will be a big step in that direction."
  • Damage numbers from bonus damage have a different treatment.

"Exiting stealth to surprise enemies with damage is a big part of Skye's playstyle so we baked Surprise Attack into her kit.

"We weren't happy with the way that Skye's weapon shots would disappear mid-air after a certain range.
