Community Transmission — Star Card Changes



Incoming transmission!

Over the last few months we’ve made a number of changes to Star Cards, whether it’s a tweak here and there or it’s adding health on kill to all heroes. There’s one bit of feedback that we’ve heard from you though, and that revolves around the health on kill cards, and that you would like to see them become passive.

We agree, and a few months ago we confirmed we would be working on this. Fast forward to the present day and we’ve now reached the point where we’re ready to deploy the changes into the live servers. This means that coming within this month’s update, all heroes will have health on kill as a passive ability.

But what happens to the Star Cards? Rather than just removing the Star Cards we will be replacing them with brand new ones, for each and every hero. All of the new cards will retain the same level as the Health Card that it will be replacing.
