    1v1 lasts from January 6 to 11, but we’ll bring it back in the future!

    Season Goals
    • Achieve up to 3 season goals based on your current rating and previous season’s rating. Season goals reward players who play early in the season and keep climbing throughout the year.
    • Goal 1 must be achieved by April 1. Earn 5,000 Essence.
    • Goal 2 must be achieved by July 1. Earn 5,000 Essence.
    • Goal 3 must be achieved by October 1. Earn 5,000 Essence.
    • If you achieve any 2 goals, you immediately unlock the Water Spirit Nekomata skin, which won’t be offered in the shop until next year (January 2023).
    • Seasons are now 12 months long and named by the current year. Now that the game is fully released, year-long seasons better reflect the stability of the game. We’ll still be patching the game and adding new content throughout the year, as usual.
    Mastermind 2.0

    When you play Mastermind in ranked, you are now given 3 playstyle options: Lock-In Fighter, Greed, and a 3rd playstyle randomly selected from a pool. All players in your game receive the same 3rd option. When you play Mastermind in classic, campaign, or play vs. AI, All Pick is enabled, allowing you to select your favorite playstyle every game.

    Mastermind Playstyles:

    • Lock-In Fighter: +3 income. Lock in a fighter of your choice
    • Greed: +5 income
    • Redraw: +3 income. 4 rerolls
    • Yolo: +7 income. Fully random roll
    • Chaos: +6 income. New roll every wave. No rerolls
    • Hybrid: +5 income. Every fighter you build is random. No rerolls

    • Cash Out: +17 gold
    • Castle: +35 income after wave 10
    • Cartel: +10 income. -35 income after wave 10

    Essence cost of Mastermind playstyles: 9000 –> 7500

    Water Spirit Nekomata

    Immediately unlock the Water Spirit Nekomata skin for free if you achieve any 2 season goals. Otherwise, you can unlock it via the shop when it’s offered next year.

    Mecha Consort & Sand Worm Deepcoiler

    Sad Hopper & Spaghetti Monster

    New secret cards! Visit the Card Trader to see which game events can trigger a drop.

    Improvements & Fixes

    Matchmaking & Ratings

    • Increased the duo penalty for low-rated parties
    • Decreased the duo penalty for high-rated parties

    Pathing & Targeting

    • When the wave spawns, enemies will now more dynamically/accurately attack the target nearest to them, rather than “locking on” to a target ahead of time. This means your ranged units are less likely to be unexpectedly targeted when your melee units run ahead of them. This change is most noticeable on ranged waves and against ranged mercenaries when you build ranged units in the front.
    • Fixed some targeting cases with Sea Serpent, Deepcoiler, Great Boar, Red Eyes, and units revived from Guardian Angel.

    Classic 4v4

    • The loading screen now shows a rating badge icon based on your hidden classic Elo. Note that this badge does not unlock end-of-season rewards, and it is not displayed on your profile.
    • The loading screen now displays income icons if an allied players receives bonus income due to lopsided teams.

    Guilds

    • Essence gain per 2000 Guild Contribution: +3% → +20%. Now even more rewarding to donate cards to your guild!
    • This bonus also applies to cards donated in the past, since it is based on your total contribution.

    Bots

    • Platinum, Diamond, and Campaign Hard bots now play more aggressively and take more risks in the early game. This means it’s no longer always correct to try to outscale them.
    • Now smarter about attacking on wave 21.

    Major Fixes

    • Graphics: Fixed a bug where projectiles would disappear when zoomed out on non-Ultra graphics settings
    • HUD: Fixed a rare case where rolls didn’t update properly on the HUD
    • HUD: Fixed a bug where opening the Codex during the loading screen would crash the HUD
    • Top Games: Fixed a rare case where the leaderboard would unintentionally get wiped

    Minor Improvements

    • Weekly Challenges: First Place Finishes (counting ties) leaderboard is now a per-season leaderboard instead of lifetime, while True First Place Finishes remains a lifetime leadboard.
    • Fonts: Swapped out some text fonts that didn’t support Asian characters for player names
    • Guilds: After being kicked from a Guild, the inbox message now notifies you how much Essence was refunded
    • Game Coach: When an ally disconnects, now shows a tip about loss forgiveness (drop only half rating if you lose)
    • Classic: Ranked callout messages now show for all players in the top 250 instead of just the top player
    • Guilds: Added an Inbox message if your guild application is rejected

    Minor Fixes

    • Tooltips: Fixed a bug where skin names would sometimes display on units that didn’t have skins equipped
    • Profiles: Fixed a bug where peak Elo ranks were incorrect for some players
    • Hotkeys: Fixed a bug where Downgrade accidentally wasn’t in the last ability slot in some cases
    • Pity Points: Fixed some rare cases where Pity Points weren’t working as intended
    Game Balance

    Full Eco (worker only strategy)
    2v2: Gold earned from leaking: 50% the normal amount → 0% (now the same as 4v4)
