Silver Chest Swap Out[edit | edit source]

Tired of the same old avatars in Plinko? Ever want to get Taunt, Couriers, and Name Colors from playing? Well, lucky you! Over the course of the patch there will be 2 events known as the Silver Chest Swap Out. These events will swap out the current content in those two chests for different content that is not normally available via Plinko.
  • Silver Chest Swap Out: Taunts | June 17th and 18th
  • Silver Chest Swap Out: Couriers and Name Colors | June 24th and 25th
  • Try your luck at Plinko and see what kind of swag you can win!

Summer Silver Discounts[edit | edit source]

From June 17th until August 24th Merrick will be discounting different avatars at 50% off their original silver price. If you've been hoarding silver and waiting for a chance to spend it, now's the time!

The War Effort[edit | edit source]

The only way to get this rare, auspicious avatar is to be ranked among The War Effort's top 50 at the end of each 28-day cycle, so keep checking that leaderboard and completing those quests! Even the staff can't get the Trophy avatars!

Zodiac[edit | edit source]

Cancer possesses an impenetrable shell and massive, razor sharp claws, but these features merely act as protection for a tender, sensitive nature hidden beneath. She would like nothing more than to relax in her seaside retreat and tend selflessly to her beloved crablings, but the Zodiacs have been drawn into the brutal war between the Legion and Hellbourne, and Cancer's nature will not allow her to remain inactive when her fellow signs require love and support.
This avatar was originated by community member Kevja. Kevja was one of the winners of the original Dream Avatar Contest and will be receiving a copy of the avatar as a reward for winning!

Bug Fixes & Optimizations[edit | edit source]

General[edit | edit source]

  • N/A and +?/-? have been removed from the pick screen UI
  • The Capture the Flag loading bar in matchmaking properly shows the player who is queueing and not the group leader's bar
  • Illusions of avatars that "evolve" over the course of a game properly represent the current visuals of that avatar
    • An example would be Doctor Gamer and his different forms
  • Sound channels fade in & out properly when the following abilities are used at the same time:
    • Rhapsody's Disco Inferno and Protective Melody
    • Oogie's Conflagration and Primal Surge
    • Music system in the Capture the Flag map
  • 8-Bit Taunt volume increased
  • Removed some unnecessary game file pre-caching
