What’s New?

:cowboy_hat_face: New Hero: Marlowe :cowboy_hat_face:

Marlowe, the Western Wrangler, is a Mid-Line manipulator who can Slow, Root, and Stun her opponents with a high-tech lasso and exoskeletal slams. Add her to your stables if you need a rootin’ shootin’ battlefield controller!

:bug: New Hero: Pariah :bug:

Pariah, the “Creepy Outsider,” is… weird. She’s a Frontline fighter. She can cocoon herself to heal. She can play with the enemy’s mind, turning their Healing into Damage. She can turn invisible. When used properly, her oddity adds a unique flair to any team!

Why no hard campaign frag changes? :frowning:

I’m excited for the Razordome! Looks like a cool skin. But the one thing I don’t get, is why is the skin called Y33T? Is this a new trend and I missed the memo?


Skins named calamity, the event is named yeet.


I’m so happy about the Mavin buff too!

Looking good, as always.

I don’t know why it’s called Y33T (to rhyme with L33T?) but I think it’s hilarious, and I’ve been thinking of other words that rhyme. I’m especially excited to get Pariah and have the enemy’s Keel, Duran, etc. backfire HARD :smiling_imp:

I’m pleasantly surprised there aren’t any Hard Mode Campaign fragment changes. It usually ends up worse for me when they do change lol. At least I get a lot of Heronium from Hero Crates.

Butter nerf seems good, he can be a pain. Maven will definitely be more dangerous. The rest seems good, too. I like the changes to Ghoul, especially by having his bomb explode on impact.


Yeet the calamity, lol.

I’m pumped for this update! The skins look great!

Excited for this update! Woooo! Good job HH. Loving the buffs on the heroes you chose for this month.


I think it looks amazing

And especially the new hero :wink:

Looking forward to the new heroes… Ghoul may be a little more fun to play as… I’m not a fan of most the healing and shielding changes tho to other heroes.


Ya, I am not sure they were warranted. I don’t see Heimlock or Butter really used a ton, and both are getting nerfs. Kobold seems to be used more than Butters, especially with all the strong mech DPS. Caine got buffed a few months ago… only to get two rounds of nerfs the following months.

These three heroes all seemed like they were in a pretty good place and not in need of a nerf. If anything I would have guessed Flatline, Phalanx, or Keel would have got nerfed before them. Kurtz definitely needs a nerf and he has gone untouched. Stack a couple healers/revivers and Mandrake around him and roll until your execute pops then auto win.

I can 100% tell you from the data that these are 2 of the most used heroes in the game for player over level 30. All hero changes are influenced by data, player feedback, and general gameplay.

Do you look at just the top level as well, like 90+? I know from playing alts that anything lower is pretty much a crap shoot. I play a Kuno team and win a TON of matches with her at around 60k team power because most of those players are newer and don’t fully understand hero strengths/weaknesses and meta team builds. Kuno isn’t great at top tier but does great at this bracket.

Also, just looking at the mythic leaderboards for the current PVP tournament I see in the top 50 teams Heimlock is only on a few teams, Butters on none, and 4-Cep and Kurtz are on almost every single team. Granted the modifies this time do not play very well to Heimlock or Butters, and I know this is only a team snapshot, but still. It seems to mirror my own experience in the top brackets and facing other teams. I see 4-Cep and Kurtz at least 2-3x as much as I do Heimlock and 5x+ what I see Butters. Butters just gets destroyed by Shiv, Panzer, and 4-Cep.

Oh yeah we look at all groups.


Has ronin got the nerf too? His riposte takes turtle speed to be up now.
