The RWBY patch will feature 3 unique and 4 previously popular modes that rotate throughout the patch cycle. Each week there will be a different limited time mode available, from midnight Friday until 8am on Monday, EST. Here’s are some quick previews of what to expect next:

Trade District Only

  • Starting with the RWBY Patch, for every patch onward that has a new map rework, we will be adding an LTM for the first week that only includes that map. This way, you can jump right into the action on our new map content without waiting for it in a normal queue!
  • Trade District Only does exactly this, hop into a KOTH or TDM match of the Trade District rework!

Test Maps

  • Unfinished, but not unplayable. Check out a variety of siege test maps during Paladins’ development, including Salt, Eastwatch, Bog District, and more!

Map Update – Trade District

Dev Commentary

Trade District is the last of the Magistrate city maps to receive the visual upgrade we began with the Magistrate’s Archives map. The buildings have all been updated to the signature Magistrate aesthetic, dark metal, and stonework with red accents, and the overall map has been made into a much more urban environment. Tightly packed row houses and soaring spires line the streets. Care has been taken to add additional shops to the map and improve existing ones. Flowerbeds have been added throughout the map as accents to the imposing buildings to create a more inviting space. All throughout the map, areas have been opened up to offer a glimpse of the city beyond this district, making the world feel as though it extends far beyond the bounds of the play space. In the distance silhouetted by the sunset, keen-eyed players will spot the imposing towers of Stone Keep keeping watch over the city below. We hope players enjoy exploring this reimagining of Trade District.


General Updates

Dev Commentary

We’ve done several things in this patch to improve the experience for all players, but with an emphasis on New Players in particular. Between updating our free Champion roster, unifying the Ability order across several screens, and allowing players to toggle Auto-Buy on and off in the Item store, it should be easier than ever to get your friends into Paladins. We’ve got love for our existing players as well, though. Namely, we’ve brought several new options to Custom Games, so you can truly customize them more than ever before!

Expanded Custom Game Options

  • We’ve added the following as Advance Settings in Custom Games:
    • Disable Health Regen
    • Global Cooldown Reduction
    • Global Movement Speed
    • In-hand Attack: Damage Amplifier
    • Starting Credits
    • Ultimate Cooldown

Item Store Auto-Buy

  • Players will now be able to re-enable or disable Auto-Buy as they wish during a match, from within the Item Store menu.

Unified Ability Order

  • The new HUD ability order default  for both centered and uncentered is:
    • In-hand | Offhand | Ability 1 | Ability 2 | Ultimate
  • Existing accounts will have the order they’re used to preserved as either Legacy Centered or Legacy Uncentered.
  • The out-of-match Champion screen and in-match Ability Info screen will match the new default order.

Update Free Champion Roster

  • We’ve replaced a few Champions with ones that are more new-player friendly. Players who owned them previously will be awarded them (so no one will lose a Champion they have masteries/skins for), but new players will instead have access to the new set.
  • Cassie is no longer free, but Tiberius is instead. Ruckus is no longer free, but Khan is instead, and we’ve added Ash as a free Champion as well. Jenos is no longer free, but Furia is instead.
  • Ash and Furia have been removed from the Gold Edition, and Jenos has been added.
  • Khan and Tiberius have been removed from the Deluxe Edition, and Ruckus and Cassie have been added.
