**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.

**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!

Ronin and Ebony Maw Buff / Balance Changes?

SeatinSeatin Posts: 52 ★★★
Hey Kabam

Coming from your Human Torch & Annihilus Buff post you state that:

"- 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."

Ronin has just entered the basic crystal pool and Ebony Maw will be entering shortly.

I don't think there's much doubt in anyone's mind that Ebony Maw is in need of a rework in terms of the numbers. I think Ronin is overall a decent character, but it's quite obvious he's far behind the ranks of Nick Fury, Aegon & Blade as his utility is a fair bit lacking.

Will Ebony Maw & Ronin 'balance changes' be announced soon?

Cheers

    I pulled ronin from basic like 2-3 days ago, and so far he looks meh. Honestly, I'd prefer maw

    Totally agree. Both need a rework much more than HT does.

    Yes, Ronin isnt on top tier skill classes level, such as blade or Fury, but hes still pretty darn good. I feel like the problem is that everyone wants every new champ to be "god tier' or above. They dont. Ronin is still pretty solid, and if you pull him, it's better than 70% of what you could have pulled.
    Maw on the other hand, is terrible lol. Certainly needs rework

    Oh I absolutely agree that he's definitely above average. Also he's just really fun to play with, which in itself makes him a god tier on my own little tier list lol.

    However if they're going to revisit him, then there certainly is room for improvement. Not to make him good (as he definitely already is more than just good) or god tier (as in directly comparable to nick, blade or aegon), but rather to make him a little bit better at what he was seemingly designed for.
    I find Ronin super fun to play, but his utility is definitely lacking. It would be nice if his dash back stance change removed all debuffs and provided debuff immunity for a few seconds. Would love to see his damage get juiced up a bit more as well!

    I agree with others in this thread tho, if Human Torch has been identified to get buffed Ronin should definitely be on the list as well. I like him, but there's no doubt he's just a bit lacking overall and could use a bit of a boost.

    They said starting in October they would start this program. Seeing as maw and ronin are either in the basic or soon to be. They miss this program.

    So what you are asking of them is to go back buff these two champs instead of some 2015/2016 champs that actually need it more so. 🤦‍♂️.

    While we are asking kabam for everything why not just buff all the champs that need them now instead of waiting for their own timeline. Seems reasonable.

    To be more specific, I couldn't answer the aspects they're looking at. They may be the same as the data aspects for the current buffs. They may be other aspects

    The 3-month rebalances are more like minor tweaks to fill in any underperforming areas. I assume it is also proactive in making larger reworks less intensive if needed at all later on.

    I have a 5 star rank 3 ronin and a 6 star diablo, would love if they are buffed. Human torch is much better than ronin is and science is already a super stacked up roster so I dont understand why would you buff human torch and not ronin.

    i also got 6* Diablo and men he has absolutely nthing going for him, no damage, no utility,No synergies
