February 2019 Update Notes - DOWNLOAD NOW!

I agree he would be broken, that’s what I said in my original post. I was primarily pointing out that patch notes were inaccurate because:

  1. The notes don’t mention that Matador’s shield was reduced
  2. The notes say “Shield is also triggered whenever cover is demolished.”, which would imply it works like Cinder’s plat, but in the game it says “whenever YOU demolish cover”

I think he will continue to be very mediocre because theres no guarantee he will break cover with gunfire, there’s a substantial chance he will use Bull Rush on someone who isn’t behind cover, and even then getting one shield per bull rush is nice but it’s not going to suddenly make him good enough to use over other top-tier frontlines.

And yea, Fischer will likely cap out his stacks, it seems to be capped at 4 stacks (again, no documentation about this), but 60% evasion for a huge chunk of the bounty is twice as much as Beck, and he has his invis. It will not be fun.

I have only two 10 star mauler and Clyde it’s not good…

Since his gold can only activate every four seconds hia plat can also only actovate every four seconds and has a duration of 20 seconds, so when the fifth activation gets activated the first one should be over.
But yes, it is still to much. Might be okay in PvP, but in bounty it sucks.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I didn’t see an announcement about Flatline’s new skin that seemed to slip under the radar. I’m guessing it’ll be apart of the valentine’s store? :man_shrugging:

I did see her new skin,then went to look at it again and it was gone,some crazy pink hair

Maybe I am the only crazy one but I really want to use Oracle can she get some love plz. Her skills take way to long to charge so she is no way viable for pvp only pve barely. If you have strong characters in your team they will kill everything so you cant proc her heal overtime when she kills with the mortar strike. Does each mortar proc her bronze skill if it is active?

Oracle fills a good role in my Mauler / Halo / Ifrit / Mandrake team.
As soon as the match starts Oracle sap 3 random enemies which will make them disoriented (and the combo starts to make Halo rain lightnings on them). She’s also good to speed up the skill charge time for Ifrit so he can do his Showtime earlier which is the most important thing to obtain a victory with this team.
Why is Mandrake in there? Because of his Platinum actually. It will trigger to deal extra damage to the 3 sad enemies Oracle saps in the opening of the match.

But she is not all that stand alone that sounds like a really nice combo that intrial burst is dumb lol. But I cant slap her into a random team and have her do well. I think she should her ger cooldowns lowered. Her broze activates after everyone uses there skills so it does make Butters shield faster or or Koblod it just speeds up there next shield proc.

I was trying to do like a Butters, Kobold, Oracle, Hivemind, and Clyde set up. all at gold tho.

There should be no hero that makes a team better on his own. There are only few heroes left that make a team better instantly and that is good. Flatline and Mandrake make every team better and in some way Dogface, because you can build whatever healing around him and he will do good.

If Oracle would not have to sit down duiring her silver skill but just cast it and move on she would be more viable.

Okay that would be cool if she could cast silver while moving. They have a lot of heros that make teams overall better if you can kill butters early he dominates and if you leave a caine alive you cant play. But like never once have I been grateful I had a oracle on the team. Except in pve content were her mortar kills a few weak enemy and you have massive heals overtime.

Butters shields are good but slow. He is good but other heroes can easily replace him.
Caine can get annoying but you can work around him with your damage dealer so he gets less effective.

Butters, Flatline, mandrake, Ifrit guaranteed shields for days.

Faction_Shoremen Bucket

The Bucket hero spotlight link is unaccesible.

Very happy that Draft events give PvP shards now :slight_smile:
Thank you for that !


So it seems this bounty will only benefit pat to win players since bucket is only available to purchase with real money?

There’s still a week before the bounty. A developer commented on another thread that we’d soon be able to grind for Bucket.

But he will not be avaliable for free before bounty. Since the raid is not announced yet, he will not be playable before Tuesday. That will give you a max of 30 Frags before bounty starts. This will make it mandatory to spend at least 240 gold to get him before bounty, even more if the raid opens later this week.

I am aware that you should have advantages if you spend cash. But what really bothers me is how HHG handles these things. Just making a statement that they want to make a new hero cash only for the first bounty, or if they just try out different ways, would be good, since they handled it different for almost a year.


It’s bad. What bothers me the most is that they said short after the updated that Bucket would be grindable “soon”.
Anyway, sure we who have Bucket already are going to have a greater opportunity to score well. Investing a lot in Scum for those who don’t have Bucket yet is their best shot. Bucket is NOT a damage monster.


He propably is not a damage monster, but he will have a good output with the multiplicator and the boosts he gets from his skills. Scum will be the man though.
But with the pile up of bio heroes we have to expect again this bounty, every bonus hero is needed to get rid of them.

The issue is this month sets a precedent for future releases. They want players to gain an edge by paying, and they make it clear. It is not a sudden change, the tweaks took place over some time to shorten the gap between making heroes grindable and the bounty events. Then you have mid-month coop change that reset your level progression. Now you have them simply replacing new hero coops with other frags.

Many of you guys will be comfortable with gradual changes but be prepared for when bounty heroes become ungrindable.
