General Changes

Star Fragment Amounts

We’re continuing to make balance changes to Star Ratings to help better promote team composition and fairness across all Team Levels. We found that the Hero Crate was offering too few fragments on a duplicate pull and that the ramp-up of Fragment cost to evolve to 9 and 10 Stars was too high. We’ve redistributed the Fragment unlock and promotion requirements across all Star Levels. The Hero Crate now gives out more Hero fragments and the overall distribution of Fragment requirements should be a lot smoother.

Daily Quests

  • Quality of life pass done to Daily Quests to make the system easier to understand.
  • Added more Quick Win Tickets. Now, they can be earned when completing 1 match of PvP, Gauntlet, or Raids. Instead of 5 Tickets per day, earn 9 free Quick Win Tickets a day!
  • Fragment rewards have been moved to the Play 3 Quests for PvP, Gauntlet, and Raids. Matador Fragments have been added to the Play 3 Raids, balancing out the Heroes available through Daily Quests and giving players more team composition options early on.

Hard Mode

  • Increased the odds of getting items and Hero Fragments to make Hard missions more rewarding for the Stamina cost
  • Hard missions now use 2 Quick Win Tickets to reflect the better reward odds and higher Stamina cost

Black Market

  • XP Items have been added in exchange for Bucks or Gold
  • We plan on continuing to make changes to the Black Market in upcoming updates

Missions

Gauntlet

  • Modified the Bucks payout formula. Buck payout should be more consistent across all level ranges
  • Our artists have done an update to the Gauntlet’s visuals. They’re prettier than ever!

District 3: Hard Mode

This District now focuses more on fighting Energy and Mechanical enemies.

District 6

District 6 has received a major update. Give it another play to experience the whole District like new again!

And Maven’s Vampiric cloud

I just test Maven and all her abilities seemed to work. Could you elaborate on what isn’t working with her?

I’m looking into this.
