Update 03-2022

By  Kitty · Official · 03/2022Back to releases

Hello Stormbounders! A new version of Stormbound is coming early March bringing balance changes, 2 new Ancient cards, QoL improvements, and some exclusive offers!

Balance changes

This release, just like any other, will bring some balance changes.

  • Melodious Sisters’ ability will now deal 5/6/7/8/9 (up from 4/5/6/7/8) to the units surrounding the target (instead of bordering it).
  • Temple Guardians’ ability now also triggers when played on the sides of a temple.
  • Fluffy Badboxers’s strength is now 5/6/7/8/10 (down from 6/7/8/10/12).
  • Excited Mousers’ strength is now 6/7/8/10/12 (up from 5/6/7/9/11).
  • Rogue Sheep’ strength is now 4/5/6/7/9 (up from 3/4/5/6/7).
  • Function Wilds’ strength is now 2/3/4/5/6 (up from 1/2/3/4/5).

New Brawls

Similar to what we did last month, we will introduce 2 new Brawl modifiers for the 2 new cards. We think it’s a good way for you to be able to try, play with and enjoy newly added cards before you start collecting them.

Like last time, a 0-mana level 1 (unless owned and leveled) copy of the new card will be added to everyone’s deck (thus causing all decks to have 13 cards). Only difference with last time is that if you also have that card in your base deck, it will cost 0 mana as well.

Quality of life improvements

We are happy to introduce a handful of bug fixes as will interface improvements in this release, starting with the friends notifications toggle. When turned off, other players cannot send you invites.

Another small but highly requested feature: being able to buy several books at once. This is now possible with the new multi-buy feature!

FAQ

When is the update going to be released?

The balance changes will be deployed with the season reset as usual. The 2 cards will be introduced on March 7th and March 21st. The UI improvements will land some time during March.
