To prevent exploitation, we will prevent new Accounts from being able to Gift enlistment crystals. We will also be taking action on those who are using 3rd Party Sellers, Bots and other farms to gift themselves mass amounts of Enlistment Crystals. Lastly, we will be adding an expiration timer to Enlistment Crystals. All unopened Enlistment Crystals will expire on Oct 18 @ 17:00 UTC.

Adam Warlock and Moondragon - Balance Update
Balance Team here again with an update on the latest round of Champions up for review, Adam Warlock and Moondragon!
Adam Warlock joined the contest aimed at being a “damage dealing, two-way champion”. Adam hit those goals with amazing DPS once he finishes his ramp and a very solid defensive win rate. Adam, also, has an incredibly unique ability, ducking into his Stasis Pod to avoid big bursts of damage, even tanking Galan’s Harvest! His playstyle can be tricky to sustain in certain situations, but when he starts getting his Sovereignty Counter going, he becomes a top Cosmic option.
Overall Adam has hit the mark in every way we wanted him to so he’ll be staying as is!
Designed primarily as an Attacker, Moondragon entered the battlerealm with a few Science defenders as targets, notably Spider-Ham and Abomination (Immortal). So far we’re seeing healthy performances in her non-targeted matchups where players ramp to Psionic Transcendence with Mind Blast. We’re also pleased with her performance in targeted matchups, where Moondragon reaches Psionic Transcendence earlier. All in all, we’re happy with how Moondragon has landed and won’t be making changes to her kit!
We are working on a champion update for Red Skull! Look for increased access to his Armor Up buffs, as well as a few new tools to upgrade his kit. Red Skull’s timeline will look like:
- 41.2 (October) + 41.3 (November) Beta builds
- 42.0 (December): Full release with updated kit
