As the game has progressed, we have tightened our design process and have specific power goals when creating Mythics. Some of the older Mythics are at a weaker starting power level than others, and we want to bring these up to par with our current standards. We want people to be able to use characters they love, rather than feeling constricted by what’s optimal from a gameplay standpoint.
In the coming months, we will be reviewing and buffing some of the older Mythics to make them more viable in a variety of situations. Our buffs will primarily focus on the earlier levels of the Mythics more than the later levels, but they will all be evaluated. We plan to roll this change out slowly, at a rate of about 1-2 per Battleground Effect cycle. The buffs will take place just before a new BGE starts, around the same time that we add new cards, combos, and recipes for that BGE.
In addition to buffing older Mythics, we plan to create Legendary versions of Mythics that don’t already have a Legendary version. These don’t have a specific release cadence. In most cases they will release alongside the buffs to their Mythic counterparts, however, this is not a strict rule we are adhering to. Some of the more powerful Mythics will not be receiving buffs but will have Legendary versions added to the game.
We’re looking forward to this update and hope that you are too! If you have any questions or feedback, let us know here.
