:beginner: Other Updates :beginner:

:fist: Hero Crate Contents :fist:

  • Harbinger is being added to the Hero Crate

:twisted_rightwards_arrows: Hero Changes :twisted_rightwards_arrows:

Beck Beck

Beck’s getting a head start on the holidays. She’s added more Crit Chance and a buff to Disabling Shot to her wish list.

  • Disabling Shot Damage per Second increased by ~12%.
  • Critical Chance increased from 2% to 8%.

Francis Françoise

This month’s Buff Focus gets some juicy updates across the board!

  • Invigorate Healing per Second increased by ~18%.
  • Offense Mod increased from 1.6 to 1.7.
  • Defense Mod increased from 2.0 to 2.1.

Heimlock Heimlock

The good doctor’s been overdoing it, so we’ve restricted his dosages.

  • Chem Bath Healing per Second decreased by ~15%.
  • Sterilize Heal Gain decreased by ~8%

Marianas Marianas

This month brings a much-needed balance change in the form of an adjustment to Marianas’ Razor Wind. With the trigger timing increased, Skills that synergize off of it will be more manageable, allowing those combinations to exist in the meta without dominating play.

  • Razor Wind trigger time increased from 0.5 seconds to 2 seconds.

Phalanx Phalanx

Phalanx performs the role of shielder a little too well, making other choices less desirable. We’ve adjusted her Team Mag Shield so that other Hero choices are more viable than before.

  • Team Mag Shield Shield Health decreased by ~22%.

Phoenix Phoenix

Phoenix is in need of a little love, as her pick and win rates clearly show.

  • Incinerate Damage per Second increased by ~5%.
  • Offense Mod increased from 1.35 to 1.45.
  • Defense Mod increased from 2.1 to 2.4.

Thanks for helping us reach 100 Heroes!

And then for Frenchie
She’s about to…Kill Bill

I hope my luck works this time. Can’t wait

Who’s Dave?

Dave is the Alien haha


With all due respect, I don’t understand the Marianas change. UNLESS I’m wrong about the percentage on Krieger gold and halo and Kiyoshi platinum. Those skills have a percentage activation according to the description. But when you see what happens in game when they are used with Marianas, it appears they trigger every second (or at 100%). If I’m right, why not just address that they hit 100% instead of tweaking Marianas?

Seems like one was tweaked to address three broken ones

Marianas got nerfed! Praise Godlante!

Interesting that Heimlock and Phalanx got nerfs again, seems like they are too overused in the meta.

So Marianas got nerfed so her razor wind hits every 2 seconds. You’ll still get hit by halo And Krieger and Kiyoshi every 2 seconds. She was doing exactly what she was supposed to do, the other three were not. She wasn’t broken.

Unless I’m wrong. Someone go ahead and tell me Krieger halo and Kiyoshi don’t hit you 100% of the time a damaging skill is used.


1.:heavy_check_mark::heavy_check_mark::white_check_mark:We did get Mk.2 as a seven star Hero so we were pretty much right on that one. :seven::star::1st_place_medal::1st_place_medal:Points
2.:heavy_minus_sign:Mk.2 is kind of like the leader of the robots but I don’t think he is really the leader of the Mercenary, but technically he is still a seven star so.0.75 points
3.:x::x: We were totally wrong on this one(What was I thinking on this one?)The devs probably would not make this happen. Ignore this!!:heavy_minus_sign::two:points

OMG you nerfed Marianas, you bastards! :rage:

Glad i didn’t spend REAL MONEY ON HER! :sunglasses:

Skin fracoise ( kill bill? ) :point_right:t2::sunglasses::+1:t2:

I get the nerf on Mariana because of the whiners. but she’s the one who allowed me to tolerate the Gorgon again. now that crappy crappy crappy crappy crappy daily co-op is crappy again. thanks I guess?


Razor Wind should trigger every 1 second, 2 seconds is too long.

Why are people surprised that Mariana got nerfed? If you look at the team composition of the last couple PvP events, it was Mari/Kyoshi or Halo/Krieger/cover breaker combination. PvP became more of ‘who can break the cover first’ versus who has better aim/team composition.

This is a much needed change for the sake of PvP because the last event became unplayable.
