Update 5.5 Patch Notes

Disney Heroes: Battle Mode Update 5.5

Welcome to the Disney Heroes: Battle Mode 5.5 Update! This release features Kuzco and Patch Season 12 plus a number of improvements and bug fixes, as well as a brand new splash screen!


  • New! Kuzco from Disney’s The Emperor’s New Groove
  • Patch Season 12!


Kuzco is a Front-Line ”Control” hero on the Yellow team. Kuzco will be available in the Prize Wall starting October 5th.


Bring It On
Kuzco strikes a pose, showing off to the enemy team and granting himself an Armor and Reality increase, along with a Basic Damage and Skill Power increase for a duration.

+Armor +Reality

Uh-huh! Uh-huh!
Kuzco does a dance to mock his enemies, Distracting the nearest enemy for a Duration, while Reflecting damage. Once his Reflect wears off, Kuzco heals himself for a set amount, plus the amount of damage he Reflected.

+HP Healed

No touchy! After using this skill, Kuzco will Dodge the next few attacks or skills and becomes immune to all debuffs for a few seconds.

The Dodge has a chance to fail against enemies above a certain Level.


Beware The Groove
Kuzco emits a constant Groove aura that Saps nearby enemies and causes them to lose Basic Damage and Skill Power each second for a duration. The reduction will stay active on enemies as long as they remain near Kuzco.

+Basic Damage/Skill Power Decrease

Kuzco’s aura from “Beware The Groove” is now larger and also causes enemies to lose Armor and Reality per second. After doing his dance during “Uh-huh! Uh-huh!”, Kuzco now Shields himself and some of the nearest allies. Heroes Shielded by “Uh-huh! Uh-huh!” also gain Attack Speed along with Basic Damage, and Skill Power while they have the Shield.

+Reality | +Armor | +Bonus Basic Damage/Skill Power Decrease during “Beware The Groove”

Battle Badge

  • Charge Condition: Shield is applied to heroes
  • Stat Buff: +Max HP
  • Lineup Buff: +Skill Power per Control Ally
  • Effect Buff: Self Heal


  • Captain Amelia
  • Carl

Patch Season 12 Information

The end of Season 11 of Patch is near, and we have some fantastic plans for Season 12 that we are eager to share with you!

We’re excited to announce that Franchise Trials will now go up to the 12th stage of difficulty, where you can start earning Tier 4 Patch Essence to unlock the heroes’ 4th Patch Talent! This means that starting this season, you can level your heroes up to Patch Level 20!

Here are a couple sneak peeks to give you an idea of what to expect with the 4th Talents!

  • Note that the stats for these may change before these are released

The Twelfth Season of Patch will begin after the release of the 5.5 update and will run for 4 weeks. After the update goes live, you’ll be able to see the season’s Featured Franchises but the Franchise Trials won’t be available until 9:00 AM CT the next morning.

This season introduces 17 new Heroes into the Patchable Hero pool, spanning 5 Franchises:

  • Nightmare Before Christmas
  • Hocus Pocus
  • Monsters Inc
  • Coco
  • Pirates of the Caribbean

The list of these Hero Improvements can be found here. But wait, isn’t that only 16 newly Patchable Heroes?! Learn how to count! Unless…

Guiding your team to new ways to chew up the opposition, coming soon!

General Improvements & Bug Fixes


Emerald Rank

Emerald will see a few small adjustments as we continue to work on larger improvements to the feature for a future update.

  • Updated the How-to-Play and Tutorial text
    • Removed mentions of Ambition
    • Added more information on how Level Scaling Stats work
  • Updated the Stat Slot Selection Tooltips

  • Removed mentions of Ambition

  • Removed the color formatting between stats gained and Emerald Stat Tier Assignments

  • Removed the Emerald vs Emerald Level Scaling Stat Effectiveness calculations from the Detailed Stats Screen

New Guild Perks

  • Added 5 levels to Car Bonuses 1-6, starting from Car perk levels 27 to 31
  • Added 1 level for the Guild Influence Storage perk
  • Reduced previous batches of Car Bonus Perks (Levels 17 to 26) by 80%


As we’ve started to discuss in a thread earlier this week, we’re actively working on improving the game experience by trying to reduce lag. Another reason causing performance issues is the Invasion ranking system.

You’ve probably already noticed that there is significant lag in the game when the weekly Invasion starts and when it ends. It was working on an outdated system, causing the whole game to perform poorly and crash in some cases.

We’ve put in a new system to fix these issues!

However, because we’ve updated the ranking system, after 5.5 releases, make sure to log in within 2 weeks to avoid being kicked out of the ranking system earlier than usual. After that, it will take 6 weeks of inactivity to kick you out of the ranking system. If you’re kicked out of the ranking system, you will be placed in Bronze, but you will not be able to get rank rewards for that week’s Invasion unless you log in again and claim the rewards.

If you continue to play normally, this change shouldn’t affect you at all! While this will help alleviate lag on at least 2 days out of the week, please know that we’re continuing to investigate other causes of game lag or performance issues.

Wish Crate

We’ve adjusted most of the reward amounts to better align with the cost of the wish crate! Items not listed here will remain the same amounts.

  • Increased the amount of hero chips that can be dropped, including bumping up the Jackpot to 1000 hero chips
  • Increased the amount of mod power that can be dropped
  • Increased the amount of disk power that can be dropped
  • Increased the amount of gold that can be dropped
  • Increased the amount of red skill crates that can be dropped
  • Increased the amount of hero specific red skill chips that can be dropped

Stamina & Skill Point Caps

  • Increased the stamina soft cap from Team Level 71 and up, and the hard cap from Red+14 and up to better align with scaling costs
  • Increased the skill point soft cap to better align with scaling costs, bumping the minimum up to a starting point of 50
  • Increased the amount of skill point amount per diamond purchase to 20. Diamond costs per purchase remain the same.

NEW! Splash Screen

We are bursting with excitement to share with you that 5.5 will introduce our very new splash screen for Disney Heroes: Battle Mode! Make sure to check in after the update to see who’s now on the loading screen! Can you guess who it could be?

Bug Fixes

Please note that we’re continuing to implement fixes for hero skills, and app performance. If you know of any in-game bugs, please submit a support ticket.

  • Resolved an issue where Mulan wouldn’t be defeated in combat, when enemies had a certain patch level and Memory Disc combination
  • Fixed an issue where changing Shego’s Memory Disc would occasionally crash the game
  • Implemented a fix to attempt to resolve negative scores during Codebase
  • Solved an issue were Meilin Lee would occasionally be unbeatable, due to not triggering her defeat animation
  • Adjusted Ralph’s speech bubble, so it doesn’t go offscreen
  • Adjusted Flash’s Memory Disc text to better communicate his scaling Basic Damage
  • Restructured Entrance Skills so their abilities trigger first before receiving modifiers from other skills.

Heroes will appear in Shops after they refresh on September 30th.

Gracias
