Welcome to the Disney Heroes: Battle Mode 1.7 Update! This release features Darkwing Duck plus a number of improvements and bug fixes.

A limited release of the new Invasion feature is also now available on Server 1, which you can read about here. As with other big new features, we plan to test Invasion first on Server 1 before rolling it out to other servers.

  • Improvements and Bug fixes

Darkwing Duck

DarkwingNarrativePortrait

“I am the terror that flaps in the night!”
Darkwing Duck is a front-line Damage hero. Darkwing Duck will be available in Diamond Crates on Servers 1-12

Skills


Gatling Fun
Darkwing Duck swings across the battlefield to deal damage to the furthest enemy plus nearby enemies.


Shadow Stalker
Before an enemy can make a critical attack on Darkwing Duck, he goes invisible to avoid the damage. While invisible, Darkwing Duck is untargetable.


Knockout
Darkwing Duck throws a canister of knockout gas at his feet, stunning and dealing damage to nearby enemies.


Shadow Speed
Everytime Darkwing Duck goes invisible, his attack speed increases and basic damage is buffed until the end of the wave.


Hero Balance & Combat Changes

We made some small adjustments in this release to balance out the overall power of Baymax, Quorra, and Tia Dalma, and to get them more in bounds with all the other heroes in the current metagame.

  • “Curse” status now reduces healing received by 50% instead of 100%
  • Baymax
    • Shields from “Healthcare Companion” and “Blast Off” are 20% less powerful
    • Fixed an issue where Baymax was unable to damage Jessie after she used her “Hootenanny” skill
  • Quorra
    • “Grid Power” bonus damage reduced from 10% to 8% of target’s Max HP
    • “Grid Power” now has a max damage cap
    • Fixed an issue where Quorra’s “Light Cycle” skill wasn’t always being properly triggered in multi-wave combats
  • Tia Dalma
    • “Bitter Storm” silence duration reduced from 6 seconds to 4 seconds
  • Kevin Flynn
    • Fixed an issue where the “Sweet Glitch” memory disk could block beneficial buffs on allies targeted by “Data Shield”
    • It has been fixed to only block disables
  • Aladdin
    • Fixed an issue that caused “When You Wish” memory disk to heal less than intended
  • Mickey Mouse
    • Fixed an issue that could cause Mickey to become invisible in some cases

Economy Adjustments

  • The difficulty of some Friend Campaigns has been adjusted to allow their Memory Disks to be available sooner, especially on newer servers
    • With this change, difficulty and required hero level for Friend Campaigns will now vary from server to server
    • Our goal here is to reduce the wait time between seeing a new hero available on your server and being able to begin a Friend Campaign for that hero
    • Because heroes don’t always release at the same time or same content update on every server, moving to a dynamic system for Friend Campaigns allows us to tailor each campaign’s difficulty to the current cap of each server
  • Gold costs to level skills and hero XP costs to level heroes have been increased for higher Team Levels
    • These are for Team Level 86 and up and will affect all servers with caps at this level or above
    • We’re seeing the growth in gold and hero XP gained at these Team Levels outstrip players’ abilities to spend them
      • This is leading to some hoarding of gold and hero XP
      • We’re making this change to cut down on gold and hero XP inflation now before things get out of control
  • Each player is limited to finding 3 video crates per day.
    • When we added the new video ad systems to the game, the goal was to allow free-to-play players and lower spenders ways to get a taste of VIP features and earn some extra goodies.
    • What we didn’t intend is to reward heavy raiding players with large numbers of ad crates. This favors big stamina spenders at the expense of the audience video ads were originally intended for. Instituting a cap on ad crates found per day levels the playing field back out.

Other Improvements

  • Orange badges have been added to the Badge Bazaar!
  • Heist players now have a unique, global color
    • Previously you were always the “white” player in Heist
    • Now each player’s color is set when they join
    • This means colors won’t change around if a player is kicked
  • The “Invite” button has returned to the Heist lobby
    • It was inadvertently removed in 1.6.4
  • The “Powered Up!” button has been moved higher on the main screen so it doesn’t block the Coliseum
  • The “Skeleton Dance” badge now also grants 250 reality, making it more useful to heroes who have access to it
  • The War How to Play now has a new card that explains how War scoring works
  • Android devices now prompt you when there is an new but not required client update available

Bug Fixes

  • Energy Drinks (hero XP) can now be spent significantly faster when holding down the “+” button to level your heroes
  • Fixed issue where KO’ed enemies in the Creep Surge hero chooser were being shown as alive
  • Fixed an issue where red dot alerts were not displaying correctly on the badges your heroes need
    • This was occurring both on the Events popup window and also during raiding in the Campaign
  • Fixed an issue where “Perk” tags on diamond crate drops earned via Guild Perks were not being shown
    • The drops were being awarded but the tag was not being displayed
  • Fixed issue where Mickey Mouse’s attack can sometimes cause a crash during combat
  • Fixed issue where Stocking Up challenge progress was being recorded incorrectly
  • Fixed an issue where heroes higher on the combat screen can be covered by Captain Jack Sparrow’s ship when he uses “Avast”
  • The “It’s Robot Time” badge is now used by heroes
  • Fixed several issues with button sizes and screen layouts on certain devices
  • Fixed an issue where you could raid Creep Surge with only a Mercenary
  • Fixed an issue where multiple copies of heroes would occasionally appear in Trials
  • Missions no longer shows red dot for startable Missions where Friend Level is 15, Mission is Level 5 and Mission only rewards Friend XP
    • This is because there’s no reason/need to do these Missions
  • Fixed an issue where calling a kicked player’s heroes to an Ambush in Heist causes the combat to fail
    • You will still get an error when calling a kicked player’s heroes but can then still resolve the Ambush
  • Fixed an issue in Guild War where previously defeated lineups were counted as defensive wins for the defending guild.
  • Reduced the power of Shank’s friend disk, Lockdown because it was preventing all damage from some heroes.

The concept that people cannot spend gold and xp quick enough is ridiculous. Now youre just making it more difficult to skill up characters and be competitive with the pay to win players. Thanks for hurting the game more.

You have got to be kidding me… I’m really curious to see the percentage of players that are in this situation. I’d wager that the percentage is very, very low (2% or lower).

  • I currently have more Gold than I can spend.
  • I never have enough Gold.

YES! Darkwing Duck! The flood gates have now been opened for other characters from Disney Television Animation! There is now NOTHING standing in the way of adding Kim, Ron and Rufus, Dipper, Mabel, Wander and Sylvia, TJ, Spinelli, Cornelius Fillmore, Ingrid Third, Jake Long, Phineas, Ferb, Milo Murphy, Princess Elena, Doc McStuffins, Vampirina, Star Butterfly, Randy Cunningham, and so many others to the game!

You understand that the hoarders are already level 100 and will not be affected by increasing the amount of gold and xp to level up a hero, right?! So you’re just making it harder for the people who already have a hard time leveling up their heroes and don’t spend hundreds of dollars to be at the top.
It would only be fair if you change it to the levels that will eventually be added, not the ones in the game already.

Also will the O3 badges add any value unlike O2 badges which added stats like +125 b damage, +1000hp or +75 energy reg or +650 max hp or +650 hp reg. :roll_eyes:

I think these weak badges are to ‘protect’ balance.
Not too powerful like P4/O0.

Yes but then why so much grinding for those, they can make those badges be individual instead of collection of 10 other important purple badges. The grind for collecting 50 bits for either 1 purple or orange is already horrendous. Atleast reduce it.

Some badges are pretty ridiculous to get. Then you run out of basic items like the peaches, beetles or the red wagons and instead of doing trials on the hardest mode you gotta do lower ones so you can get these items. :roll_eyes::roll_eyes::roll_eyes:

This totally. I just hit level 86… I am ALWAYS after gold… ALWAYS. I don’t agree with this change one bit.

The grind to get the Orange badges is also pretty crazy… 3x50 orange needed 1 complete badge that does +100 HP and like +100DMG. Ridiculous.

Yeah some very important badges like purple crate, family shears, Triton’s Trident, Winniefred’s spellbook aren’t even in trials and only in 1 or 2 maps. These are required in most badges and for every other player. They should give us a choice to select badge bits in trials according to our requirements. Also some badges like close shave, sallys spice doesn’t show up often in shops and if they do they’re for thousands of diamonds. These bits are hard to collect and then they’re also required for starting freind missions. It’s ridiculous.

I can’t believe it’s getting MORE expensive to upgrade skills. It’s already so difficult to max out heroes’ skills…

How could charging MORE gold (for the same results) without additional ways to GET gold be considered an improvement?

PerBlue, come on. I’m a level 100 player and I don’t spend much. Why are you so obviously trying to squeeze your players’ wallets for everything they have? :pensive:

Yea, making it more expensive to update skills is gonna hurt. Who has all this extra money?

Can I get some?

The extra cost for hero xp and gold is stupid. Every time I level up, I suddenly find myself out of both. I’ve never seen anyone complain about having too much gold or xp drinks anywhere.
