The Bling King update is available now! Here are the patch notes:

Features
• The Bling King Incursion on Little-Horn Valley:
o The Kobold King is extorting Little-Horn Valley, and it’s up to you to meet his demands for gold or he’ll destroy the Inn!
• New Huntress Weapon, Bling-O-Midas:
o This iPWR 750 bow drops exclusively on the Bling King Incursion. This weapon slows enemies and turns them into gold!
• iPWR 750 Gloves:
o Similar to the Spectral Knight Incursion, an up-to iPWR 750 loot piece will drop from the Victory Chest!
• Bonus Missions:
o As part of our effort to increase the earn rate of Medals, Monthly Missions have become Bonus Missions. Get a new Bonus Mission every week. Bonus Missions are completable in 1-2 play sessions and give more Medals per playtime than our previous Monthly Missions.
o This week’s Bonus Mission: Win the Bling King Incursion!
• EV2 Medal Cost Reduction:
o Series EV2 is now 10,000 medals!
• New Abyss Lord Costume: the Depth Lord!
• Misc Changes:
o Pause menu will now display the mode and difficulty of the current match.
o Added Series EV2 bag icon for premium bags.
o Changed the color of Series EV2's card back frame.

Balance
• The stat increases from EV2’s Buff Beam did not improve from Tier 2 to Tier 3 and from Tier 4 to Tier 5. Rescaled each tier from:
o Tier 1: 1 to 1
o Tier 2: 1.1 to 1.05
o Tier 3: 1.1 to 1.1
o Tier 4: 1.2 to 1.15
o Tier 5: 1.2 to 1.2

Bug Fixes
• Fixed a crash when leaving a map as somebody else was loading in.
• Fixed a crash that happened when inspecting someone's deck and then clicking hero info/costume as someone else was loading into the session.
• Improved the loading time on the session list.
• Fixed an issue where some Ignite cases were not counting toward the Ignite Daily Mission.
• Fixed an issue where the Arcane Resilience and Null Void bonuses to health were being applied after the tower was placed, causing the tower to be damaged when it first spawned.
• Fixed an issue where selling EV2’s nodes while at maximum defense mana would not drop mana equal to the node cost.
• Fixed numerous collision issues related to EV2’s Death from Above ability. (Special thanks to @Lord_DaS for the thread!)
• Shardshot passive should correctly deal damage now.
• Fixed a VFX issue with the Mighty Fists and Smiting Fists passives.
• Series EV2 can now wear the Carnival masks.
• Tweaked the audio on EV2’s Heat Bar.

Known Issues
• The game can crash when transitioning out of a map after inspecting another person’s Hero Deck.
• The VFX for the Bling Bow doesn’t 100% match the width of its area of effect and the VFX of the enemies turning gold is not being properly applied to some enemies.
• Combining Oiling Strikes sphere with the Flameburst Tower does not ignite enemies.

I tend to favour the puzzle, RPG, action-adventure and strategy genres. My particular favourites over the years have been Final Fantasy IX, Metal Gear Solid, Civilisation V and The Last of Us. I'm also a sucker for a series: Darksiders, Assassin's Creed, Tomb Raider etc. I am a bit of a lone gamer as I tend to steer clear of PvP, and only play multiplayer with close friends.
