Updates on Hero

As part of the ongoing process we announced in our August Development Update, we'll be making the first changes and tweaks to Heroes – not just to enhance combat but also to enhance every aspect of the superhero experience!

Global Changes

We've looked at our opponents' strikes and Heroes' hit reactions to damage. We want to alleviate the difficulties of systemic combat situations where the player can be overwhelmed and spammed with too much damage at the same time, so we've incorporated armor on the player that will completely protect players from damage within a fraction of a second – not only giving players a fair amount of time to escape any follow-up attacks, but also giving priority back to the initial enemy attacker who won't have their own attacks interrupted by collateral

Another global shift we've made that all Heroes may receive enhanced pushback damage when they activate Heroic Attacks, rather than just Heroic.

Now let's dive into our Hero changes:
