**KNOWN AW ISSUE**
Please be aware, there is a known issue with Saga badging when observing the AW map.
The team have found the source of the issue and will be updating with our next build.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
**KNOWN BG ISSUE**
We are aware of an issue with the seeding for the beginning of the BG season.
We are adding rewards to higher progression brackets to offset the additional grind.
More information here.
**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

Upcoming Annihilus and Human Torch Balance Changes

MCOC TeamMCOC Team Posts: 528
edited August 2019 in General Discussion
Summoners,

As we mentioned earlier we’re committing to more frequent, smaller, tuning and balance changes in the Contest. You can take a look at that post here.

We’ve looked at the data and took in your feedback and have observed that Annihilus is performing well as a defender, he is currently under-performing as an Attacker, and are looking at different options to improve his performance.

Human Torch performs very well in matches against Mystic Champions, in matches where he can bypass Miss, and when he can reverse healing. However outside of those conditions, he’s not as strong as we’d like him to be. So we’re looking at increasing his strength in those not-ideal matchups. He should still have situations where he’s weaker or stronger, but we want to close the gap a little.

We are estimating that this change will be live in approximately 3 months.

While these 2 have already been added to the Basic Pool of Champions, going forward, we will be letting you know before about these updates before a new Champion is added to the Basic Pool so you can make informed decisions.

    Great. Ronin as a pure attacker is far from ideal either. Please consider balance him as well.

    Great news, but this is a joke. I think a lot of people can agree that the older champions need more balance tuning than Annihulus and Human Torch. Why are you giving them specific favor for balance instead of others?

    Be happy it isn’t an announcement of tuning champs down and restraining them due to their OP abilities

    So will it be like a Sentry-esque buff?

    Yeah let’s buff champs that only the whales and rng lucky have.

    I'm not exactly either and I pulled HT from FGMC. He's in the Basic now anyway.

    So you got lucky and pulled him from a FGMC, thanks for proving my point.
    You could say the same for any Champs. You either have them or you don't. Further to that, there are others being looked at. It's just the start. Are they only supposed to look at Champs that everyone has?

    This is amazing!
    Please keep up the positive trend of IMPROVING these champs going forward, and not nerfing them to the ground 3 months after people spent hundreds of dollars to pull them or grind 80M points for them.

    I don’t know if I’ll get an answer to this but I find myself wondering if we’re going to see any tweaks to champs pre Annihilus. There’s a few champs in the recent back catalog like Diablo that could do with some tweaking

    Great news! any details on the buffs yet or do we need to wait until their release to find out?

    Also, if you ever need to tune a champ down, how will this affect players who already ranked them up based on their original abilities? will they be given the chance to reallocate their rankup resources?

    You don't know how to play ronin if you think that
    He kinda isn’t ideal same as massacre very hard playstyle except not a great payoff

    What I don’t like is how they said they may alter a champ up or down
    I’m assuming this could mean a nerf which if you do this before they are released into the basic means you are pretty much changing it after people have spent

    That is true but let's be honest champs like namor and cull do too much damage. Best to stay balanced
    They have their pros and cons like any champ
