EA 1.0.3 Patch Notes

Thank you for participating in the Second Wave Early Access! In this new patch, we are making some balance changes to Heroes, Game Modes, and  Items based on feedback, as well as some bug fixes. Additionally, we’ve improved some gameplay based on feedback, such as “Crouch Dashing” and an issue with Michaela’s [Charge] attack. Lastly, we’ve added more hair dye options for heroes.

Please remember that everything in the Early Access is still in development! Just as we did during Alpha and Beta, we will continue to develop the game by listening to your valuable feedback during the Early Access. Thank you for your interest and we look forward to interacting with you and making Second Wave even better!

For now, enjoy the game!
