Battlerite‘s latest patch (1.1.0) has rolled out, bringing with it general improvements to performance and UI, balance changes, and a new champion.
Take a look at the extensive list of patch notes below, and try to spot the line which pokes fun at EA’s recent defending of loot boxes: (Hint it’s the one towards the bottom in bold!)
Fixed a performance spike when some champions became visible after standing in the fog of war
Fixed a FPS drop that some players experienced when Ruh Kaan killed someone with his primary attack (M1)
Added additional resolution options for the following aspect ratios: 5:4, 4:3, 3:2, 5:3, 16:10, 16:9, 17:9, 21:9. This should allow players with a struggling GPU to reduce the resolution and thus increase performance. The aspect ratio is currently locked to a minimum of 16:10 – this will be fixed in an upcoming patch.
Loadout Picking time reduced from 90 to 60 seconds.
The following bots have been added to VS AI and Private Matches:
A notification message will now appear in chat when Steam Overlay is not enabled when trying to purchase a bundle that requires overlay to be enabled.
Can now equip mounts in the Collection -> Mounts window.
It should no longer unready all members of a party when one member unreadies.
Fixed a bug where black borders would block the HUD when in a match with 4:3 or 5:4 (or higher ratio) resolutions.
Fixed overlapping texts in the ‘Active quests’ section in champion select.
Added ‘View Profile’ dropdown in the add friend popup.
Changed ‘FREE TO PLAY’ text in champion select to ‘FREE TO PLAY ROTATION.’
If multiple chest reward notifications are active and player clicks on one, all of them are removed.
Added Champion icons to control settings dropdown list.
Changing camera modes (bound to 1-4) have been re-enabled in full screen Odeum replays.
You should no longer get stuck in the loading screen if you edit a replay directly after viewing an Odeum replay.
Champion names are now displayed in Scoreboard
Scoreboard now correctly displays the scores of the previous round until the next round begins
Champions are now properly cleared of energy, buffs, weapon charges, and other effects before each round starts.
Fixed a bug with Shadow Pestilus’ Queens ability.
Added a 500 HP dummy that regains health if not attacked for 1.5s. You can practice combos on it!
The Dab of Pride and Accomplishment – New Legendary Pose available for Croak. Can be unlocked for 20,000 Tokens.
“The intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking this item.”
This item can only be purchased with tokens and will not drop in chests.
– New Champion – Destiny, the Sky Ranger

I don’t think EA is ever going to live this one down!
