- Vehicle health, primary weapons and passive abilities now scale by +4% per vehicle level (base stats remain unchanged)
- Secondary Abilities at level 5 will be 2x as powerful compared to level 1. (base stats remain unchanged).
- Players can now switch vehicles during all Super Abilites with a timed activation (with some exceptions).
- Vehicle levelling formula has been adjusted and total XP required to level up has been reduced.
- Team XP gained from destroying Front and Mid Towers has been reduced to 225XP per Tower.
- XP gained from healing has been reduced.
- XP is now earned through the following actions:
- Dealing damage
- Healing allies
- Destroying Mobs
- Destroying Turrets
- Damaging Tower Shields
- Destroying Power Cores
- Capturing XP Stations
Teams still gain a passive XP bonus and certain utility abilities also earn XP.
This is a significant balancing update designed to address issues with teams steamrolling to victory after destroying a Tower or securing a few early-game eliminations. By narrowing the power difference between Vehicle and Ability levels, teams with lower level vehicles will be at less of a disadvantage and more easily able to recover from losing a team-fight or Tower. We will be monitoring these changes closely.
