Disney Heroes: Battle Mode Update 1.6

Welcome to the Disney Heroes: Battle Mode 1.6 Update! This release features a number of smaller updates listed below. We also have a limited release of the Mods feature on Server 1, which you can read about here.

Overview

  • Costumes: New outfits for your heroes, starting with Elastigirl
  • Badge Bazaar: New shop where you can buy badges with tokens
  • Creep Surge Raids: Raid in Surge several times per day… if your power is high enough!
  • Events Update: New look for the Events UI

Hero Balance and Combat Changes

Maui

  • We made some changes to make Maui’s ability to protect his teammates more versatile.
  • “Hooked” now reduces the amount of Fantastic Damage taken by allies affected by his Courage, in addition to Normal Damage
  • “Hooked” damage reduction has been upped slightly

Fix-It Felix, Jr.

  • Fix-It Felix, Jr. is good at keeping himself in the fight, but he could do a little bit more to support his allies. His increased Skill Power will help him heal allies and boost the strength of their skills!
  • Fix-It Felix, Jr. now has 50% more base Skill Power
  • “Power of Positivity” grants significantly more Skill Power to allies

Captain Jack Sparrow

  • These changes should help Jack stay in the fight longer and get more damage done.
  • Captain Jack Sparrow now has 20% more base HP
  • “Avast” now does more damage per shot

Scar

  • Scar excels at getting in the last blow, but these changes should make his damage output more fearsome throughout the battle.
  • Scar now has increased basic attack speed
  • Scar now does 15% more base Basic Damage

Costumes


  • The hero screen has a new button!
    • This button will appear on heroes who have alternate costumes
    • For 1.6, our first new costume is for Elastigirl
  • Costumes are unlocked by collecting Costume Threads
    • Keep an eye out for ways to earn Costume Threads for Elastigirl soon!

Badge Bazaar

  • This is a new shop where you can buy badges with tokens
  • When running Events and Contests where badges are featured, it’s hard to know what badges a player wants, so we’d rather let you choose with your tokens

Creep Surge Raiding


  • As with City Watch, we wanted to find ways to keep the Creep Surge fun while also managing the amount of time required to play it each day
    • As more heroes arrive in game, the number of battles per person per day slowly “creeps” up
  • So for 1.6, we’ve added a fun way to raid:
    • If your team’s power is 10% higher than the defending lineup, you can raid it (instant win)
    • The catch is that you can only do this a few times a day:
      • At first, you may only raid a Creep Surge fight once per day
      • At VIP 5 and 8, you get an additional raid
      • You can also earn an additional raid from Guild Perks

Events UI Update

  • As our game has grown and our events have expanded, we decided now was a good time to refresh the Events UI
  • The new layout features a full screen with a list and a highlight panel
  • We’ve also added occasional popups on the main screen to remind you of events currently running

Who’s your suggestion? Ralph is a 1-star Hero and every Sign-in Hero starts with 1-star. Plus, there’s the new movie, why not honor him and the gang?

I’m glad we’re finally getting alternate costumes, and that my beloved Elastigirl is the first one getting a one. But… Really? Ralph as December’s sign-in hero? He’s been in the game since launch. Why not Elsa, or Jack Skellington, or Wayne and Lanny from Prep and Landing? You know, ANY character that fits more into the December theme that most of us don’t already have six stars for?

Even Vanellope or Calhoun would work both are one star and better then Ralph but to me Calhoun makes the most sense she is from the movie one star and not a starter

Why did the team choose genie to go back in vip when he was already there very recently?
