  • New! Gonzo from The Muppets!
  • Hero Balance, Invasion Update, Guild Aid, New Crates, and more!

Yzma

dialogue_yzma
Yzma is a mid-line “Control” character. Yzma will be the October Sign-In Hero on Servers 1-15.

Skills


Push Your Luck
Yzma turns invincible to mix a potion. She then throws the potion at the closest enemies, dealing damage depending on how long she mixed the potion. As Yzma mixes the potion, there is an increasing chance of the potion backfiring and exploding in her face, which instead deals a percent of the damage to Yzma and enemies around her.

While not on auto, the player can end her mixing early by tapping her portrait. While on auto, Yzma will always mix the potion for X seconds, deal X damage, and it will never blow up in her face.


Llama Drama
Yzma throws a potion at an enemy, turning them into a llama, stunning them, and dealing damage.


Scary Beyond All Reason
Yzma cackles, “Scaring” enemies for a few seconds.


Alchemy
Every x potions thrown by Yzma with her basic attack or “Push Your Luck” will either blind, curse, or stun enemies.


Wardrobe Change (Red Skill; Server 1 only)

Yzma’s basic attacks splash to nearby enemies, dealing and applying any debuffs from “Alchemy” to them.

Friendships

  • Yzma and Ursula
  • Yzma and Miss Piggy

Madam Mim

dialogue_madam_mim
Mad Madam Mim is a front-line “Damage” character. Madam Mim will be available in the Diamond Crate on Servers 1-13.

Skills


Wizard Duel

Madam Mim magically transforms into different animals based on the role of the enemy that last used an active skill.

  • Tank Role: Mim turns into a crocodile, biting the closest enemy and dealing fantastic damage.
  • Damage Role: Mim turns into a tiger and pounces on the last enemy who used their active skill, dealing normal damage.
  • Control or Support Role: Mim turns into a dragon and breathes fire at the farthest enemy, dealing fantastic damage to enemies in an area.


Ugly Old Creep
Madam Mim turns her face into a hideous sight, “Scaring” the closest few enemies.

I Make the Rules

When Madam Mim uses “Wizard Duel”, her different animal forms receive the following bonuses.

  • Crocodile: Mim also deals a percent of the target’s max HP as damage.
  • Tiger: Mim stuns the target she pounces on for a few seconds.
  • Dragon: Mim also deals damage over time to enemies hit by her fire breath.

Mad Energy
Madam Mim gains energy each time an ally uses their active ability.


Magnificent and Marvelous (Red Skill; Server 1 only)
At the beginning of the first wave, Mad Madam Mim gives herself and her allies energy.

Friendships

  • Mad Madam Mim and Jafar (coming soon!)

Gonzo

Gonzo_NarratorPortrait
Gonzo is a front-line ”Tank” hero. Gonzo will be available in event crates and contest rewards on Servers 1-15.

Skills


Chicken Run
Gonzo incites his hypnotized chickens to stampede, dealing damage to all enemies and stunning them.


My Next Act
The Great Gonzo cannonballs into each wave of combat, landing in the middle of enemies and dealing damage to all surrounding enemies.


Raise the Stakes
Every X times that one of Gonzo’s chickens damages an enemy during his basic attack or “Chicken Run,” Gonzo gains a shield that blocks damage and lasts for a few seconds.


Gonzo the Great
Gonzo takes a percent less damage for each percent HP that he is missing.


Fond Memories (Red Skill; Server 1 only)
While Gonzo has his shield from “Raise the Stakes,” he gains HP per second. During each wave, Gonzo applies “Most Wanted” status to the enemy who is dealing the most damage. Every few basic attacks, Gonzo’s basic attack stuns this “Most Wanted” enemy.

Friendships

  • Gonzo and Duke Caboom

Hero Balance

  • We’ve made some adjustments to Jafar’s skills to make him better balanced. Our goal is not to nerf him, but adjust his skills to make him less overpowering and more fun.
    • Lowered damage on “Whirling Dervish”
    • Increased damage buff on “Snake Charmer”
    • Increased slow on “Sands of Time”
    • Increased attack speed buff on “Sultan Vile Betrayer”
  • Jasmine will receive her Red Skill on Server 1.
    • Each wave, Jasmine blocks the first x disables. Rajah can not take more than a percent of his max HP as damage in a single attack.

Invasion Update

With the 1.12 update, we changed how skill levels above the server cap worked to make things scale more effectively for mods. As a result of this, high level Mama Bots became much easier. Last week, we fixed the issue, restoring Mama Bot to her previous difficulty. However, after reviewing the data from last week’s invasion, we realized this change made it harder for players who are a little behind to keep up. So, starting with the new Invasion on Monday we will be returning high level Mama Bots to the easier difficulty they had for most of 1.12.

Since 1.12, there have been some bugs with Invasion that have made it frustrating for players. For this update, we’ve addressed those issues and expect things to be more reliable and consistent going forward.

Guild Aid

Are you having problems getting your hero or their skills to the next level? We could all use a little help from time to time to get over those progression bumps in the road and now with our new Guild Aid feature, you’ll be able to get it.

Guild Aid is all about giving and asking for help from your fellow guildmates. You can make requests for XP to help level up a hero or gold to level up a hero skill.

To ask for XP help with a hero, tap the “+” button next to their Level meter and look for the “Ask For Aid” button. XP help requests are limited to heroes who are 20 or more levels below your server’s Team Level cap.

For skill level help, look under the “Skills” tab and tap the Aid button to see which skills are eligible for aid. One great benefit of asking for aid with a skill is that you get the Skill Point for free! Skill level help is limited based on the skill color. White and Green skill help can be requested for skills up to 20 levels below the cap, blue skills are up to 40 levels below the cap and Purple skills are up to 60 levels below.

By default you can only request each type of aid once every 20 hours, but if that’s not enough, your guild can unlock additional requests through their Guild Perks. It’s worth noting that even if you ask for aid, you’ll still have the ability to level up that hero or skill, but doing so may cancel your request and you’ll have to wait until it resets before being able to ask for aid of that type again.

Most important of all, don’t forget that help is a two-way street! Make sure that you visit the Guild Aid screen within your guild to see who else could use a hand. Help your guildmates out by donating your XP items and gold to their heroes too!

New Crate Items

We’re introducing some new crate items in this release that will help you more accurately target the heroes you’re looking for! Team crates will give you a chance to find hero chips specific to the heroes on either Blue, Red or Yellow teams; Role crates contain hero chips for Control, Damage, Support or Tank heroes.

The drops for these crates include purple and orange badge bits, Gold, and XP drinks. These crates do not include the Sign-In Hero, or the featured heroes for the Guild Crate and VIP Crate.

Team Crates

Role Crates

The rewards within Team and Role crates are determined when you buy them, NOT when you open them. A crate will only contain heroes and items that were available at the time it was purchased.

Premium Stamina Items

Who doesn’t like free things? Well now with our new Premium Stamina item you’ll get an extra free 10% stamina bonus as long as you use the item within the first 24 hours!

If you need a bit more time to decide what to spend it on, don’t worry, each time you buy more Premium Stamina items you’ll reset the 24-hour timer on all your unused Premium Stamina items. But don’t wait too long, once the timer runs out the bonus disappears for good!

Other Improvements

  • When you unlock a Red Skill, an automatic message posts on your Guild Wall to celebrate your achievement!
  • Guild Leadership now has the ability to control whether or not they want the 30-day cooldown when they kick members from their guilds.
    • Whichever setting is currently chosen will apply to all players.
    • For example, if the cooldown is set to “off”, all players will be able to join (or request to join) even if they were kicked while the cooldown setting was “on”.
  • We’ve added a new Ultra XP Drink that is worth 300,000 XP.
    • This item can’t be sold for gold.
  • We’ve lowered the cap on “raw” stamina to 20,000.
    • Raw stamina is the amount you have immediately available for use
    • There is no impact on stamina consumable items
  • Power Crafting will now unlock at VIP5 (down from VIP7)!
  • We’ve added a new Guild Role: “Tactician”! Tacticians are meant to help manage Guild War. They can:
    • Post, edit, and delete posts on the Guild Wall.
    • Queue for Guild War.
    • Mark Guild War targets and move Guild War lineups.
  • We are working to improve matchmaking in City Watch
    • As team power has scaled up, higher end players are receiving too wide a range of power in their matches.
    • We’ve updated the matchmaking algorithm to smooth things out and make matches more even.
    • Because we want to make sure everything works properly, this change is currently only on Server 1.
  • Completed Friend Missions will now need to be collected before you can start new missions with any of the heroes that participated in the completed mission.
    • This change was made to help prevent an issue that was causing some screen lag and crashes.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where duplicate enemies could sometimes appear in Campaign lineups.
  • Fixed an issue with the Auto Add feature in Enhancements where manually added enhancements weren’t being considered when calculating the Auto Add cost.
  • Fixed an issue where claiming loot from a defeated Invasion boss could result in an invalid loot error.
  • Fixed an issue where the “Fill the Vault” challenge wasn’t counting gold earned from selling items.
  • Fixed an issue where the “In a Jiffy” challenge wasn’t counting Invasion Boss battles won with Quick Fight.
  • Fixed an issue in City Watch where no confirmation popup was presented when switching from Epic difficulty to another difficulty.
  • Fixed an issue in Invasion that sometimes caused revives not to work in Boss fights.
  • Fixed an issue that was causing the City Watch reset to happen at 5AM server time rather than with the player’s daily reset.
  • Fixed an issue in which the Quick Fight loading spinner would sometimes continue to spin after losing a battle.
  • Fixed an issue in which the Auto Add Enhancement didn’t calculate materials manually added into the bucket before Enhancing. This would cause the cost of Enhancing to be more expensive than necessary.
  • Fixed an issue where the top 10 ranks in a contest were also being considered as part of the “Top 1%” calculation
    • This should make it easier to finish in the top 1%
  • Fixed an issue in which not all Mod Upgrades were being included when updating Arena defense teams.
  • Fixed an issue in which only the Guild Leader could edit the Guild Motto, instead of all eligible Guild roles.
  • Fixed an issue in which a green border sometimes surrounded Red Skills in the Hero Screen before they were unlockable, causing confusion.
  • Fixed an issue in which Huey, Dewey, & Louie would become untargetable after activating their “Woodchuck Travel Badge” skill.
  • Fixed an issue that allowed red enemies in the campaign to use their red skills on servers where red skills are not active.
  • Fixed an issue that was preventing notification for new private messages

Typically, we submit the update to the app stores on Friday for review and approval. For 1.13, we are submitting the update on Monday, so ideally, we’d like to update the server on Tuesday, October 1, it may be delayed to Wednesday. I’ll update the forums once we know when the update will be happening.

Pretty good update

I hope this does address the the issue with invasion, however id like to say that even players with teams of all 135 red 0 heroes were having difficulty so this was not simply an issue with players who weren’t caught up having trouble. I still hope this helps.

Incredible update! Jafar nerf, 3 awesome new heroes, guild aid, tactician, HD&L big fix! What’s not to love?

8 Likes

Before I say anything, I feel like pointing out the fact that these heroes will (most) likely have enormously powerful stats. But hey, seeing the Jafar balancing, I’m not going to lie and say it’s set in stone or anything. Plus, absolutely no response to the Cursed Red Skills.

Besides that, this is phenomenal. Yzma, Captain Hook, and Madam Mim are all great choices to add for the Halloween season. Yzma seems like a wonderfully creative Damage/Control, and Madam Mim looks great as well, with a unique active we’ve never seen before.

All of the new additions, the new XP drinks, the new Tactician position and other features look great as well.

And - yes, our prayers have been answered! Jafar is finally getting a proper balancing! Well done PB!
