Patch notes

Introducing a big shakeup on the streets of White Spire as new heroes and old friends/enemies/frenemies join the fray. We've got a lot in store for you this update, everything from a big roster shakeup to new alliances, items, and even a new way to play Standard matches. We've also compressed ranks downward, it's time to show off what you can do with the new lineup! And don't worry Lords, though you may be (temporarily?) Dethroned, we've given you a little keepsake (it will unlock soon after the rank reset).

Note that this is a compatibility-breaking update, so until you download the new client on your mobile device you'll only be matched with other users running the old version too.

Rank reset

Ranks above Grifter are being compressed downwards by one major level and Grifter and all lowered ranks will be reset to the first minor level. For example, if you're a Big Boss I-V, you'll be a Boss I. If you're a Grifter V you're only reset to Grifter I. Lords of White Spire will be reset to Big Boss I.

Classic mode

We've added a Classic Mode option to Standard Casual. Missed those Creep waves and don't want Anessix or Jull to interrupt the nostalgia? Check it out! You can play Classic by turning on the Classic checkbox in the Standard Casual tab on the Play screen or by playing a Private Match in Standard.
