When the time comes for us to update the live game with these balance changes, we will be utilizing a different process than we’ve previously used.
- There will not be a patch distributed for this balance update.
- There will be a small maintenance window associated with this update, and after the service comes back up, the balance changes will be live throughout the game.
- The build number on your client loading screen will not increment. The patch level of the game will remain 1.4.3.
You can read more about the specifics of the balance changes in our Call to Action: Balance Testing blog post. Thank you very much for your participation and feedback.
