    • When Lola has only one ammo, her damage is increased by 30%

Balance Changes

  • Ash
    • First Bash - Now increases rage gained from the attack by 200% (previously it was 100%)
    • Reduced rage gained from taking damage. Full rage now requires 125% of max HP taken (previously it was 75%)

Ash has been in a pretty decent place overall, however, the reward from hitting enemies versus taking damage has been a bit off. Mad as Heck has also been outperforming First Bash significantly, so giving it a buff while tuning down overall rage gain from damage means the trash knight has to hit more attacks to get really angry.

  • Frank
    • Irresistible Attraction now doubles the damage of the attack along with pulling enemies in
    • Noise-canceling now gives immunity to El Primo suplex gadget

Noise-canceling is a great gadget, except against El Primo’s Suplex. We fixed that for consistency, resulting in a small buff. El Primo didn’t like this change.

Irresistible Attraction has been the less popular choice across the board. We hope giving it some burst to go along with the pull will make this a viable option.

  • Griff
    • Business resilience - Increased heal to 10% of missing health (up from 7%)

Griff’s Business Resilience has largely been out of business (hehe) in comparison to Keep the Change. Good Griff players should now be able to constantly pressure their opponents better thanks to an increased amount of healing which was the original intention.

  • Meg
    • Meg now gets 33% amount of ammo when her mech is destroyed (up from 0)

Giving Meg a little bit of ammo when her mech is destroyed allows her to fight back and finish off low health opponents and will make the transition feel significantly better.

  • Jacky
    • Increased base hp to 5000 (was 4600)
    • Increased Super charge rate to charge in 4 hits (was 5)
    • Removed Shield from Super activation

Jacky is in a good place after the most recent round of changes. We wanted to remove a remnant of her old super in the shield and compensate by giving her back her previous health. Her super also now charges in 4 hits as it did before the nerf for consistency.

  • Mortis
    • Reduced Creepy Harvest heal by 400 (1800->1400)

Mortis rework was overall a massive success and provided playability on all ranges without the need for a Star Power. As a result, though, his creepy harvest has been a bit too... creepy, so we toned it down in the hope that the reworked Coiled Snake could become more of an attractive choice.

  • Brock
    • Reduced main attack projectile speed by 11%

After letting the dust settle, it's clear that Brock's new more explosive rockets are very effective. Tuning down the projectile speed a little should allow for more opportunities to avoid the splash, and also rewards better aiming for seasoned Brock players.

  • Leon
    • Lollipop Drop - Health now decays over a 20-second duration

Leon has risen in popularity largely due to his lollipop providing massive utility. While it can be countered decently by throwers, it had the same issue as Bo’s Totem which in certain matches and comps, was providing too much value.

Giving it decaying health (exactly like the current Bo’s Totem) means Leon players have to be more careful of when and where to use it.

Other

  • Now it’s possible to see during the match if a player owns a Gadget. It’s visible under the Brawler, on the same circle the Star Power is shown
