My apologies if I missed this somewhere, but are Cull and Maw changes now occurring before Torch and Annihilus? Are Torch and Annihilus changes still on the horizon?

Thanks in advance.

    What to expect:

    - 3 months after a Champion is released we’ll have reviewed and analyzed their data.
    - If it needs a small balance, up or down, we will notify the player base before it enters into the Basic Crystal Pool of Champions.
    - Approximately 3 months later any changes made will have been tested and then released to the Community.

    This new balance cadence will be limited to minor balancing of a Champion's existing kit, abilities won’t be added or removed. If a Champion needs a rework, that Champion will be addressed separately, and any compensation will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

    For example: If a Champion is under-performing as an Attacker, we may choose to boost the potency of their Fury or Cruelty Effects. If they are under-performing as a Defender, we may look into decreasing the cooldown on a defensive ability.

    Yes, I’m aware, but we were informed about Torch and Annihilus. Now they said Maw and Cull. It seemed to me that they meant they would be next. It’s entirely possible I skimmed it too quickly.

    So, Torch and Annihilus are up next?

    Likely, there are three steps outlined.

    Gather data and review.

    Let the players know the results and direction they are going with the balance changes. This is what has happened with HT, Anni, Ronin, Maw and Cull.

    Then test and release approx 3 months later. But because it is approximate and testing is involved that time line cannot be definitive and you then cannot expect them to all be released at a specific relative time.
