Release Notes

Content and Environment


  • Blood War
    • The rate at which the Blood War mechanic tilts in favor of either demons or devils has been decreased.
    • The rate at which the Blood War mechanic tilts in favor of either faction now decreases or increases based on how long it took for one team to gain the upper hand in recent battles.
    • The faction which has most recently claimed victory in the Blood War now gains advantage at a reduced rate. Conversely, the losing faction gains advantage at an increased rate.
    • As a result of the above changes, a victor in the Blood War will be declared less often, but it will be more likely for either side to claim victory.
    • Known Issue: When the same side wins twice in a row, then the meter fills on their side again, the appropriate enemies take longer than expected to spawn (approximately 7 minutes).
