We have a small patch arriving tomorrow, on Wednesday, May 8th. This patch will primarily be focused around some changes we are making to Anakin Skywalker but will also include a couple of fixes for other heroes.
We have made several balance changes to Anakin’s abilities, including increasing the cooldown of his Heroic Might ability by 4 seconds and reducing the health increase from his Tenacious Star Card by 50%.
In addition to these changes we have lowered his lightsaber damage from 140 to 130 and also reduced the damage bonus from his Massive Strikes Star Card from 10-15-20-25 to 5-10-15-20.
We have seen some discussion on an issue where Bossk was able to defeat heroes in one shot by zooming out right before his weapon was fully charged. We have fixed this issue and have also fixed an issue where Count Dooku’s Expose Weakness ability had no cooldown.
As always, thanks for the continued feedback and we’ll see you on the battlefront.
