There are some clues in the above image, so get your speculation caps on, and let us know what you think is coming in the comments!


finally a bounty revamp, this extreme update seems intresting with the most wanted crate. Maybe further hero progression as in more perks for heroes…or maybe even a level cap increase…


Finally Oro gots a buff.
This is a bomb, I don’t know if my phone will survive or explode during the upgrade


Thanks devs! Can’t wait to get that Oro skin. Looks awesome.


Klayton Buffed,
Mandrake Nerfed,
Maven Buffed,
Oro Buffed,
Panzer Nerfed
Sapphyre Buffed.

All seem like good decisions to me.

Looks like a great update, and all great skins, especially the Wasteland skin. I do hope Klayton’s health boost is enough to make him a worthwhile hero to use, otherwise he’s merely target fodder.

And for some reason, I thought Hivemind was going to be the focus hero this month, but I guess I misread something.


Please stop ruining panzer. Ronin is still ridiculous. Otherwise, appreciate everything


Great!! Huge update… happy to hear the devs are listening to us. Great job HH!


Wow this looks great, finally some motivation to do bounty and other ways to possibly get gilded tokens

interested to see what kind of revamp v3 will have


Nerfing Mandrake was a poor decision. Mandrake is not only useful in PvP but in PvE as well, that nerf will render him to be overhaul less useful, you should had at keast kept his healing to 40%.

Big changes it seems, only time will say if they are as good as they appear (like with the gauntlet changes that turned to be a rip-off, high increase of difficulty same rewards).

How about you show some love to Forged Fantasy as well? The game is dead due to the lack of updates, development and fixes.


Fantastic, absolutely huge!



Nice update, so far so good, we wait and see if everything works as it should. little note on the side, if this goes on with the crates, I will soon have to scroll as far as with the heroes until I get the crate I am looking for

Event filled update, bounty FINALY gets the love it deserves. New chest options looks promising. Hero balancing seems fair, but the tease that February update will bring us something exciting is pure evil, EVIL :smiling_imp: can’t wait to see what everyone speculates the big news in February update will be. I’d love a new tier over platinum and cap increase to 100 :slight_smile:


How.about showing the new bounty milestones so we can see what they will look like


Exciting updates all around. Great to see an older hero getting a new skin. Hopefully more of that in the future. :smile:


Reminds me of Mighty Battles :confused: RIP.

Here’s hoping…

Mandrake Nerf is long over due. The game gets stale when all you see is the same team with Mandrake and Flatline over and over again. Hopefully with these changes, it will force people to be more creative with their PvP lineup and see different combinations out there.
