Paladins Trickshot Update

Paladins Trickshot Update adds a new champion called Trickshot, a new event, new trials, a map update, 4 new limited time modes and lots of balance changes so lets get into all the details.

No expense is spared to be the best of the best. She may work for money, but she makes her money work for her — with the latest equipment to complement her skills. You may try to take cover, but not even solid cover can save you from Saati, the Trickshot.

To you, a coinflip is a gamble. For her, it’s an opportunity. If you hear that she’s after your bounty, you might as well stop running and meet her face to face — either way, it only delays her next night out. The biggest marks yet still walk the Realm, and those big bounties will fund a LOT of carousal.

STONE KEEP MAP UPDATE: DAY & NIGHT

Developer Commentary:
With this map rework we wanted to accomplish two main goals. 1. We wanted the color scheme and architecture design to very obviously reflect that Stone Keep is a Magistrate City. And 2. We wanted to use this rework to introduce a much more urban environment, something we’ve never really put into Paladins before. We wanted this map to feel more like a bustling medieval metropolis, and we expanded on the skybox to reinforce that. The sheer cliff drop is gone, replaced by a wide swath of additional city buildings across a broad canal.

We intended the map to feel more like a small piece of a much larger world instead of a castle sitting alone atop a hill. As for the lighting, we’ve wanted to test multiple lighting scenarios on maps for some time, and this seemed like a good place to start. Thanks to the city setting we were able to integrate many sources of artificial light into the visual design so we could continue to highlight important routes and landmarks in the dark. We’re very excited to see how both versions of this updated map are received and we hope you enjoy playing.


GENERAL UPDATES

Developer Commentary:
Some of our systems weren’t working as well as we’d hoped, so this patch we put some time into making things better. The Bounty Store should be more functional. Some unintentionally blacklisted words have been un-blacklisted. And Champion Mastery should be giving the correct rewards.

Bounty Store

  • As of our upcoming Hotfix, Daily Quests should once again award Bounty Coins (increased from previous store to 30 – normal, and 60 – hard)
  • Players will now have opportunities to earn additional Bounty Coins in the Event Pass and Trials of the Realm.
  • Keep your eyes peeled for a new Dredge skin only available via the Bounty Store!
  • In addition, we’re bringing back limited quantities, and adding Boosters as another way of spending those hard-earned coins.

Free Rewards

  • We’re increasing the number of rewards that can be claimed per day from 5 to 35 for players in regions where ads are available. We’ll continue to monitor this system and make adjustments.

Prohibited Words Blacklist

  • We’ve made some adjustments here. Players can now type Cassie without getting asterisked out!

Update on Champion Mastery Rewards

  • With regards to reports that masteries weren’t correctly awarding the expected rewards–we believe this has been fixed.
    If players are still experiencing this issue, please let us know and we’ll try to get it sorted out.
    Player account name will be useful in tracking down any further problems

BALANCE

Developer Commentary:
As Paladins continues to grow and evolve, we continue to refine the methods by which we determine which changes should be made in any given patch. This includes a strong data-driven approach mixed with valuable feedback solicited from our Assembly of Champions, our official social media channels, our Discord, and others.

These changes address some of the Champions who are currently under- or over-performing, as well as Champions who are perceived to be strong or weak and would therefore benefit from seeing changes. In addition to the changes going into this update, we have other ideas and changes already on the slate for future updates, as we continue to work with you to help keep Paladins on the top of its game.

Androxus

  • Defiance
    • Reduced range 25 – 20
  • Buying Time
    • Reduced Ammo scaling 2|2 – 1|1

Developer Commentary:
While Androxus has pretty healthy statistics, there are a few aspects that are seen as not aligned with player expectation, including the visual distance of his Defiance and the amount of Ammo that can be generated with his Buying Time card.

Atlas

  • Unstable Fissure
    • Increased range 20 – 25
  • Temporal Divide
    • Reduced Cooldown penalty 65% – 55%

Developer Commentary:
The change to Temporal Divide made playing with that talent even more difficult. This shifts some of that frustration back out of that change. Additionally, Unstable Fissure is doing fairly well, but could use a slight range increase to make it more confirmable in more situations.

Cassie

  • Crossbow
    • Increased projectile speed by 5%
    • Increased projectile size by 10%

Developer Commentary:
Cassie is a Champion who rewards players who are familiar with how her weapon handles, and these changes aim to make it slightly easier to do so.

Corvus

  • Officer’s Pistol
    • Increased damage per shot 70 – 74
  • Increased maximum effective range 110 -125
  • Projection
    • Increased the Cooldown reduction when choosing to not Teleport 1s – 2s

Developer Commentary:
Corvus is slightly underperforming in areas not surrounding his Healing output. As such, we’re increasing his combat effectiveness and the utility of his Projection.

Evie

  • Blink
    • Reduced the time until teleport 0.2s – 0.1s
  • Over the Moon
    • Increased damage buff 20% – 25%

Developer Commentary:
Evie is in a solid state (does Ice Block count?) but we feel that Over the Moon is underperforming slightly when compared to her other talents. Reducing the pre-fire (the time it takes before the ability activates) of Blink will be a nice quality of life change for Evie players.

Fernando

  • Aegis
    • Increased resource required to bring Shield up 15% – 20%
    • Reduced base rate of Shield resource generation by 11%
    • Increased time after taking damage before full rate of recharge begins 0.6s – 0.7s
    • NEW: Added a 1.5s delay after Shield is completely destroyed before recharge will begin

Developer Commentary:
Our statistics and player feedback align on the fact that the current iteration of Aegis is overperforming. Nerfs across the board as it relates to this talent aim to bring it more in line with other similar mechanics and his other talents.

Grover

  • Deep Roots
    • CURRENT: Crippling Throw will Root enemies hit and will Chain between nearby enemies up to 3 times.
    • NEW: Hitting an enemy with Crippling Throw will chain a lesser effect to up to 3 nearby enemies, Slowing them for 35% for 2s.

Developer Commentary:
Deep Roots allows for significant utility beyond the healing the living tree brings to the battlefield. It is frustrating to be impacted so often by this ability, especially as we have seen Grover’s playrate increase recently. This change is meant to still provide a significant utility benefit to picking Deep Roots, but help alleviate some of the frustration players are experiencing with this talent right now.

Octavia

  • Designated Sights
    • Increased damage per shot while aiming down sights 425 – 450
    • Increased maximum effective range 110 – 125
    • Slightly increased accuracy

Developer Commentary:
With her most recent changes before this update, Octavia was performing decently, but we saw a significant decline in playrate for this Champion. These changes will bring her slightly more in line with the rest of the damage cast.

Seris

  • Mortal Reach
    • Reduced the effectiveness of the Healing tick rate modification 25% – 20%

Developer Commentary:
Seris is currently able to put out a significant amount of Healing very consistently. We’re bringing that down for those who are taking Mortal Reach, and we’re keeping Seris on the list to watch for subsequent changes.

Sha Lin

  • Desert Silence
    • NEW: Reduces the Cooldown of Crippling Arrow by 1s. Crippling Arrow now Silences and Slows enemies by 15% for 2s.
  • Withdraw
    • Reduced Cooldown 12s – 11s
  • Rapid Shot
    • Reduced Cooldown 13s – 12s

Developer Commentary:
Desert Silence was underperforming when compared to his other talents, and Sha Lin needed a bit of love to bring him slightly more in line with the rest of the damage.

Skye

  • Smoke and Daggers
    • Base Healing per second 150 – 100
    • NEW: Smoke Screen no longer applies Invisibility to you

Developer Commentary:
Smoke and Dagger is overperforming, but it does provide an interesting and fun change to the way Skye plays. This change brings down its effective Healing at base, but also removes some of the utility that Skye would otherwise get in addition to the talent’s other benefits.

Strix

  • Talon Rifle
    • Reduced the time after a shot before you can shoot again 1.25s – 1.2s
  • Pistol
    • Reduced vertical and horizontal recoil by 15%
    • NEW: Now automatic — does not require individual presses for each shot

Developer Commentary:
We are confident in the change that we made to Talon Rifle in the last shift, but feel comfortable bring his refire rate slightly back up so Strix can be more in line with the rest of the damage Champions. In close-range encounters, Strix’s pistol handles pretty poorly. We don’t want to bring back the days in which his Pistol had the highest damage per second in the game, but we do feel that it could feel more effective at base.

Terminus

  • Power Siphon
    • Increased resource consumption 20%/s – 22.5%/s

Developer Commentary:
Terminus is a powerful Champion in both perception and in gameplay. Part of that is the nature of his Absorb. This change encourages players to be a little more mindful of his Siphon energy consumption and how they manage this ability.

Tyra

  • Nade Launcher
    • Reduced damage 700 – 650
  • In the Fray
    • Reduced scaling 5|5% – 4|4%

Developer Commentary:
Tyra has been performing a little more highly than we would like, and these changes are meant to bring her down more in line with the rest of the cast.

Vatu

  • Enveloping Shadows
    • Reduced effectiveness 15% – 12%

Developer Commentary:
Vatu’s Enveloping Shadows talent is overperforming when compared to his other talents, so this is meant to curtail its effectiveness in comparison.

  • Fixed an issue where Atlas’ Unstable Fissure icon and description were missing from the in-game scoreboard if Atlas had that talent equipped.

Corvus

  • Fixed an issue where selecting the binding that activated Corvus’ Ultimate, Entropic Breach, while in the Spawn Room could lock Corvus out of using his Abyssal Reconstruction ability until he used his Ultimate in the match, outside of his Spawn Room.

Imani

  • Fixed an issue where the Swift Sear card would not function if Imani used her Inferno Cannon ability while in midair.

Pip

  • Updated the description on Pip’s Ultimate, Evil Mojo.

General

  • Fixed a height difference between opposite corners on the top section of the Capture Point on Foreman’s Rise (this issue prevented Yagorath from swapping to Planted Form on one corner but not the other).
  • Fixed an issue where the hover state on the “X” (Close) button on the “Earn Free Rewards” menu did not line up with its selectable area.
  • Fixed an issue where Gamepad players did not have a “Close” callout in the bottom left corner of their screen when inside the “Earn Free Rewards” menus.
  • Fixed an issue where Gamepad players would be unable to select the option to use a Skin Booster if they were previewing an unowned skin in Match Lobby.
  • Fixed various issues related to translation and message display errors.
