Character Balancing Update

UPDATES
01/10/2020

Commander, 

 

Changes are coming! The next balancing update will modify and improvethe abilities of 8 soldiers: 

 

KAREN BOWMAN  

  • Karen’s abilities were a little too unreliable and featured no Ability Power scaling.  
  • ActiveHer active was cleaned up to be more reliable. It now guarantees that at least one ally joins her to Synchronize Fire on the interrogated enemy.  
  • PassiveNow deploys a shield (20% Ability Power) on the lowest health ally when triggered.  

 

FURY  

  • Fury’s abilities’ functionalities were a little vague and weren’t working together as well as intended. We clarified the description and increased the complementarity of her abilities.  
  • Active: After attacking an enemy and returning to position in stealth, Fury stays focused on the same enemy (taking advantage of the passive bonus). 
  • Passive: Allies that are affected by the smoke bomb now also receive the passive bonuses.  

 

VASILY  

  • Vasily’s performance was a bit lower than expected. A few utility and damage boosts were required.  
  • ActiveThe stun now triggers at >75% Health.  
  • PassiveThe first shot after the instant reload now deals an additional (25% Ability Power) damage.  

 

EL SUENO

  • El Sueno isn’t used to prolonged resistance. If it happens once, he makes sure it doesn’t happen again. 
  • Active: If the taunt is resisted, the enemy is feared instead.  

 

NIDIA FLORES  

  • Nidia can be extremely efficient when surrounded by the right teammates but lacks ability power scaling and better team benefits.  
  • ActiveWe clarified the description. Her ability now applies bleed (35% Ability Power) after reloading.  
  • Passive: After forcing enemies to retarget, her active applies a Damage reduction bonus to her allies, helping them protect the queen.  

 

MONTAGNE  

  • Montagne was slowly becoming eclipsed by other tanks and had no Ability Power scaling. We added a small shield which should help him against more abilityfocused enemies.  
  • Active: After taunting apply a shield (25% Ability Power). 

 

EL WEY  

  • El Wey’s passive ability was a little underwhelming for such a dangerous Sicario.  
  • Passive: Now reduces Armor and Healing received, and scales based on how many allies are also focusing his target.  

 

EL MURO  

  • El Muro lacked Ability Power scaling. He was also not reliably taunting enemies. This is now fixed. 
  • Active: Now transfers some of his current health to his guarded ally. His debuffs are now stronger when he is low on health.  
  • PassiveEl Muro now instantly reloads and deals an additional (10% Ability Power) damage with every shot. 

 

Get ready Commander!
