As previously announced, the team will be distributing an additional point toward milestones to anyone who completed the Absorbing Man fight in the first step of the Winter of Woe.
This point will be distributed at a later time as it requires the team to pull and analyze data.
The timeline has not been set, but work has started.

Gladiator and Iron Man - Balance Update

Hey all,

Balance Team here again with an update on the latest round of Champions up for review, Gladiator and Iron Man!


As the summoners' choice champion, many people were excited to see Gladiator join the contest. He was geared towards being a fun and effective attacker with a couple defensive tricks if you block those pesky Special 2’s.

After reviewing his performance since release, we’re seeing that Gladiator has come up short of his goals.

This means that Gladiator will go through the rebalance process!

The goal of this rebalance is to increase his damage floor with an easier and more consistent ramp, and allow him to live at his damage ceiling longer once he is ramped.

Iron Man

Iron Man’s revamped suit came with some potent upgrades, aimed at upgrading his damage, countering some of the more annoying Mutant defenders out there while also keeping the tools of his old suit in his Arc Overload and Armor Breaks.

So far we’re happy with how he’s performed across the battlerealm, especially as an efficient attacker on Path 6 of Alliance War.

No changes incoming for Iron Man!

What’s Next

Gladiator tune up! His timeline will look like:
  • 43.0 (February) + 43.1 (March) Beta builds
  • 44.0 (April): Full release with changes
