Patch Highlights

Friendly Battles

You can now play against friends via an in-game code. Tap the new “Game Modes” icon on the navigation bar and then tap “Friendly Battle” to get started! 


Battle Mode tips to get you started! 

  • Access Battle Mode after completing the "stakes tutorial" and hitting Rank 10. 

  • You cannot change decks between rounds or SNAP beyond your health bar! 

  • During Round 5, the stakes are raised! Rounds start at 2 cubes rather than 1.

General Updates

  • You can now change your name within the Avatar menu once every 30 days.

  • Zabu has been added to Series 5 in the Token Shop.

Art & Visual Effects

Added new effects for Ghost Rider when there’s no card to play.

Balance Updates

Card Updates

  • Leader: [6/7] On Reveal: Copy all cards your opponent played to the location to the right, but on your side.

  • Wolverine: [2/2] When this is discarded or destroyed, regenerate it at a random location with +2 Power.

  • Text-Only Updates:

In addition to Wolverine, a few cards use the word “play” in their text but don’t actually play anything. This small update aims to avoid players misinterpreting how these cards interact with triggers that specify playing a card:

  • Hela

  • Jubilee

  • Sentry: Using more consistent language for similar effects.

Location Updates

Text-Only Updates to:

  • The Raft: Removing the word “draw” for accuracy.

  • Vibranium Mines: Removing “a card” for brevity.

Bug Fixes

  • Killmonger no longer has the incorrect translation in non-English languages.

  • [Android] Pinning a Token card then tapping the device Back button or ESC on PC should no longer un-pin the card.

  • [iOS] UI elements no longer clip with the card ability info at the bottom of a card when a card is focused.

  • Fixed an issue that could freeze the game when interacting with the Season Pass Spotlight Card.

  • Fixed several Avatars that were not centered.

  • Fixed an issue that would sometimes allow cards other than Shocker to be removed from the deck during the deck edit tutorial.

  • And many more!
