Paladins Monstercat Update

Paladins Monstercat Update adds a new champion called Betty La Bomba, new cosmetics, the Monstercat Crossover Pass, and of course, gameplay and Champion balance changes after January’s Season 5’s Schism Update.

NEW CHAMPION: BETTY LA BOMBA, THE BOMB QUEEN

She had it all. The brains, the looks, the POWER. None of the other border lords dared defy her wishes, and her wish was for EVERYTHING. She designed and commissioned the creation of living weapons: bombs meant to bring her enemies’ defenses crumbling down and her foes to their knees. What she didn’t expect was for one of her newly-created bombs to develop a mind of its own, such as it was.

Having lost her domain to the rampant explosions of this new “Bomb King”, Betty la Bomba has determined that it is time for her creation to return to his rightful place, under her thumb. Whether that is as her partner in expanding her new rule or as bits of scrap for her new toys has yet to be determined. NOTHING will stand in the way of her gadgets and explosives as The Bomb Queen reestablishes herself as the RIGHTFUL ruler of the realm.

OVERVIEW

[Role]

  • Damage

[Health]

  • 2100

[WEAPON] GRENADE LAUNCHER

Fire a grenade from your launcher that can bounce and explodes after 2s, dealing 510 damage in a small area. The grenade deals 550 damage and has a larger area of effect if you hit an enemy directly.

[ALT-FIRE] CLUSTER GRENADE

Launch a grenade that creates additional secondary explosives based on the number of enemy targets hit. The initial explosion deals 250 damage in an area after 0.4s and secondary explosions deal 500 damage in an area after 3s. The grenade can spawn up to 6 additional explosives.

[ABILITY 1] HAIL OF BOMBS

Send out a magazine chalk full of explosives that spray upward and outward to land randomly in a large area around where it deploys. Each explosive does 390 damage in a 20 unit radius.

Jump forwards and upwards, damaging and knocking back enemies caught behind and below you. You can use this ability up to three times before it goes on Cooldown. Each blast deals 300 damage to enemies within 35 units.

[ULTIMATE] LONG LIVE THE QUEEN

Summon the biggest bomb in your arsenal and hop on, gaining the ability to control your flight. Hitting an enemy will cause an explosion, dealing 1700 damage and knocking the enemy and you away from each other. Reactivate this ability or fire to send the rocket flying out in a straight line towards where you are looking.

WARDER’S GATE MAP UPDATE

Developer Commentary:
With the update to Warder’s Gate we wanted to push some of the original goals of the map a bit further. Namely we wanted to improve upon the contrast that develops between the two sides of the map as this empty Warder City, with it’s protective enchantments fading, is slowly consumed by nature.

We’ve cranked up the clean, shining opulence of the intact side of the map by adding more golden details into the architecture and focusing on dragon and scale themed ornamentation. The skybox on this side also better reflects our original vision of the map being just one part of a larger city, additional buildings can be seen covering the surrounding hillsides still untouched and gleaming.

On the natural side, more vines, leaves, moss and sap have been pulled in to emphasize nature taking control of the area. A few dragon skulls are affixed to buildings, another reminder that even these great beasts are subject to the whims of nature and so too is the city.

We’ve used glowing crystal pillars to help emphasize the location and importance of the capture point with a unique landmark. And we’ve updated the water in the map to use the more stylized material treatment we’ve applied to more recent maps. We hope you enjoy this updated take on the Warder’s Gate map.

GENERAL UPDATES

Antiheal Scaling Update

  • The Antiheal being automatically applied to your weapon attacks is getting a bit of a change. New timing is as follows:
    • Siege
      • Base level 25%, scaling 5% every 60s to a maximum of 90%
        • 60s – 50s
    • Onslaught and King of the Hill
      • Base level 25%, scaling 5% every 45s to a maximum of 90%
      • 45s – 40s
      • We are investigating distinguishing Onslaught and KotH for the purposes of this Antiheal scaling.
    • Team Deathmatch is not seeing any timing changes this update.
  • Note: We still intend to implement a visual indicator for how much Antiheal is currently in the match on the in-match scoreboard.

Menu Themes

  • We wanted to bring more of the music that’s been composed for Paladins into an option that’s selectable by users. The answer? Menu Themes. Essentially, these would be used in place of a traditional music pack, but are more lightweight (not playing in every place the packs would). Doing this allows us to utilize more of the music we have, where some might not have had all the pieces for a full music pack.
  • Some of these are restricted by their license, but essentially, if Themes are purchasable until a certain date, then anyone who buys it before then will keep it. Other themes are only Useable until a certain date, in which case we’ll find ways for players to earn them or give them away – we won’t let you spend money on a Theme and then disable it down the road.

Ranked Map Rotation

  • With the Warder’s Gate update, we’ll be rotating that map out of ranked, and instead bring back Timber Mill.
