New Champion: Nyx, Queen of the Abyss


In the far past, Nyx was once a Pyre Lord, working alongside Azaan and others in the seemingly eternal fight against the chaotic Abyss. Over time, she found herself disillusioned with the ways of the Pyre and their rigid controlling dogmas – so content to throw away countless lives in their endless wars. She would show the Pyre the power of freedom, true freedom.

Approached by the one who would eventually be known as Seris, they devised a plan for Nyx to begin her great betrayal. Nyx left the Pyre behind and traveled through one of Seris’ portals into a Lord’s fortress. Once there Nyx slew and subdued all who stood in her way in a violent bloodbath. Even the residing Lord was no match for her fury, their name lost to time – cementing Nyx as an Abyssal Lord. Her time in the Abyss has changed her physically, but she remains determined to bring a new age of chaos and freedom to the Realm. With her growing army behind her, she offers power to those who will accept it: a united front through strength and the chaos of free will – a force strong enough to overwhelm the Pyre wholly.

[Weapon] Realm Breaker
Punch and send out energy in an attack chain of 3 lights and 2 heavies, dealing 175 damage for the first three hits and 400 damage for the last two. This chain resets to the first attack on a miss, or after not firing for 1.25s. Deal an extra 75 damage a hit if your target is within 20 units of you. Has no Ammo or Reload. Passive – Queen of Change: Nyx gains up to 20% Bonus Healing the closer she is to an Objective Point. Gain a static 10% Bonus Healing on Maps without an Objective.


[Alt-Fire] Rift Slash
Fire a 200 damage projectile that explodes on contact with enemies or after traveling 25 units. On detonation, tear open an Abyssal Rift which pulses every 0.5s for 50 damage and Slows enemies hit by 35% for 1s within 30 units. After 2 seconds, the Abyssal Rift explodes, dealing 200 damage to enemies close to the center. Nyx can hold down the activation button to channel the ability, causing the projectile to travel up to 100 units and deal up to 350 damage the longer it is channeled.
[Ability 1] Abyssal Fortress
Call forth an Abyssal Shield with up to 4500 Health at the target location, placing it up to 90 units away. The Shield is stronger the closer it is placed to you, losing 1500 Health for every 30 units its placed away from you.


[Ability 2] Royal Presence
Summon a Poisoning aura centered on you that Poisons enemies within 60 units for 5% of their max health over 6s. The aura lasts 8s, and while active any damage received is instead dealt to you equally over the next 4s – with additional damage refreshing the duration to 4s. Reactivating the ability ends it early, and fires off Abyssal Chains that deal 100 damage and pull enemies up to 50 units away towards Nyx.


[Ultimate] Chaos Nexus
Channel and tear open Abyssal Rifts that deal 100 damage and pull enemies within 50 units towards Nyx every 0.5s. After 1s, explode in Abyssal energy, dealing 600 damage to enemies within 50 units and stunning them for 2s. While channeling, gain 50% Damage Resistance, CC Immunity, and remove any damage-over-time from Royal Presence.




[Default] Show of Force
Rift Slash now knockbacks enemies hit by the projectile, and the resulting Abyssal Rift lasts 1s longer.

General Updates

UI Overhaul

  • With this UI overhaul, the goal was to make your inventory easier to view and equip between the Profile and the Store. All game accessories are now split: what you own is found in your profile, while stuff you do not own can be found in the store. The Player Profile has also been cleaned up with less info hidden behind a popup and by reorganizing how the tabs are organized (like now you will find match history as the first tab in your Profile>Player).


  • We also updated the Landing page of the Store. Now when you open the Store under the Daily Deal, a mixture of items will appear to help promote more items to the players. Our art team makes a lot of cool things that have always been hard to find unless you know where to find them and this should help surface content. 


  • We also removed the Splash Art for skins to help with visual clarity of the game. This change makes it easier to identify which skin you’re picking in the Match Lobby, as well as what champions you are going against while in the loading screen. Unifying the look of these to appear more consistent to the in-game presentation will make the game easier to approach. We are looking at ways to incorporate the Splash Arts into the game in an alternative way.

Bounty Store

The Bounty Store & Marketplace are closing as a part of Season 6. Bounty Skins you own will be kept, and any leftover Bounty Coin & duplicate skins will be rewarded as we transition. More info on specifics coming soon!

Ranked Split Updates

This year, we intend to have 4 ranked splits of roughly 3 months each. Information on Splits and their rewards will be shared at a later date.

Balance Changes

Kill to Heal

  • Getting a kill or elimination heals you for 250/500/750 ➡️ 200/400/600 Health


Healer Shifts

The core of the “Dual Support Meta” issue seems to be that certain healers are too good at both healing and damage dealing. The intent of these changes is to make the most frequent offenders among supports choose either one or the other, while still allowing players to lean into their existing preference of playstyles.
