    • Endless jokes about big planes aside, we’ve been very excited to build and balance the first air Paragon!

Game Changes / Additions

  • New Languages – Polish and “Monkelish” are now supported
  • Team Browser – Added more intuitive UI to the ‘Advanced Search’ panel
  • Paragon tower placement restrictions
    • We’ve set a maximum of 3 per game in 33.0, as we now have a baseline of general purpose DPS paragons and want to move into more synergies and interesting mechanical interactions between them, which become more interesting when choices need to be made
    • We have heard the clear feedback from the community about this general restriction based on the preview notes and now plan to do the following in future major updates, or minor ones if feasible:
      • Increase the limit to 4, based on feedback about 4 player co-op in particular
      • Include a Content Browser editor function that allows players to set higher limits or unrestricted in player-created Content Browser games
  • Contested Territory
    • The number of steps required to use Relics felt like too many so we’ve removed Relic Voting from the team store. Now, when viewing any tile players will be able to pop up a full list of their available to personally select from.
    • To improve active team coordination we have allow Vice-Mayors to also set focus markers on the CT map.
    • The total number of focus markers each team can set in CT has been increased form 1 to 4, to allow for diverse preference and strategies.
    • Contested Territory matchmaking improved for better groupings based on activity & overall rank.
    • Added a Daily Reward to welcome back players entering the Contested Territory event.
    • The Main Menu CT Icon now shows a pip displaying available tickets.
    • Tidied the CT Info panel up for much clearer readability.
    • Added a spooky Seasonal Theme to CT screens, in preparation for Halloween!
    • Added Discord & Steam Rich Presence for Contested Territory.
    • Team Banners can now be set on personal profiles, as long as your team owns that banner.
    • Over 32.4 to 33.0 we made general constant improvements to the balance of Banner/Relic tile distribution over the CT map.
