GAMEPLAY

We’re continuing to iterate on our recent changes to Orb Prime, reducing the effectiveness of the Prime Card buff with this release. We want to provide an incentive to use the Orb Prime buff as an objective that allows a team to siege and push the enemy base, however we found that Deathtouch was a bit too effective at creating pressure in other unoccupied lanes.

We’re also experimenting with a reduction in respawn times now that Prime has proven to be an effective tool for sieging the enemy base.

We want to set an expectation that we will continue to iterate on meaningful objectives that add an extra layer of strategic depth and value to each match — so expect more changes soon!
