New Game Mode: Arena
The gladiators have called for help, and the gods have answered. The Arena game mode is a brawling deathmatch where your goal is to defeat enemy players and their minions by reducing their team ticket count to 0. Average game time is around 15 minutes.
New God: Loki
Behind You! (Passive)
Loki deals 20% more damage from his basic attacks when hitting enemies from behind.
Loki disappears in a puff of smoke for 3s. While invisible, he is immune to slows and moves 50% faster than normal. His next basic attack from invisibility (or for 2s after) applies a bleed to his target, dealing 30/45/60/75/90 (+25% of your physical power) physical damage every .5s for 2s and reveals Loki. Cost - 70/75/80/85/90 mana. Cooldown - 15s.
Loki spawns a decoy version of himself that taunts all nearby enemy minions. After 3s, the decoy explodes dealing 90/155/220/285/350 (+80% of your physical power) physical damage to all enemies in the radius. Cost - 60/65/70/75/80 mana. Cooldown - 14s.
Upon activation, Loki’s next basic attack does an additional 60/100/140/180/220 (+80% of your physical power) physical damage within 5 seconds. The enemy hit is also slowed by 25% for 3 seconds. Cost - 50 mana. Cooldown - 12/11/10/9/8s.
Upon activation, Loki teleports to his ground target location. If an enemy god is within the radius, Loki will backstab that target doing 250/325/400/475/550 (140% of your physical power) physical damage and be stunned for 1s. Cost - 100 mana. Cooldown - 90s.
- The “Normal” gamemode (featuring a three-lane map surrounded by a jungle area with bases on each end) has been renamed “Conquest”.
- You now have 10 seconds to sell back the last purchased item at full cost.
- All queues now have an informative panel describing the game mode. The general UI for joining matches is planned to get a major overhaul in future patches.
- The minotaur now breaks down deployables instead of just passing through them.
