In addition to the two units we announced yesterday, we’ll also be pushing a large list of balance changes at 11:59pm tonight. Many of them are quite minor, but some are very important. A complete listing, alongside an explanation for each change, is provided below:
A new patch arrives soon!
As promised, a new Prismata balance patch will deploy this Friday at 11:59pm ET. Three new units will be added the Prismata unit collection, and they’ll appear with a higher-than-average frequency on the ladder throughout the weekend.
Here are two of the new units, both featuring build time 2:
The third new unit will be revealed on Friday, making its long-awaited return. It has a brand new start-of-turn ability that hasn’t been seen on a Prismata unit since early April, and its new ultimate click ability will make your opponent wince in fear every turn if you use it enough times. Prismata will never be the same.
Full patch notes, including all buffs and nerfs, will also be made available tomorrow.
Today, I’m going to discuss one of my favourite mechanics in Prismata: build time. Specifically, build times greater than one, as employed in the design units like Tarsier, Apollo, and Zemora Voidbringer.
Here are all the Prismata units that currently have a build time greater than one:
A bunch of random things to discuss this week…
First and foremost, we have another alpha player survey online. There are questions about skins/emotes, unit balance, the armory card-flipping minigame, and more. Please fill it out; your responses are extremely helpful!
We collect a huge number of statistics on Prismata units—how often they are bought, how often players win with them, and how balanced they are. In this article, I wanted to share a few of our findings.
The first Grand Prix round of the Prismata Alpha World Championship will be tomorrow and we’re incredibly excited!
