Mini Patch 2.0.6.0

We've got a small update today primarily to drop the new Champion Elliana skin into the game for our RCS monthly participants. As usual she goes a little overboard with being a trophy winner. In addition to the new skin there are also a few general changes. Now that the Definitive Edition is out we don't plan on doing many large character balance patches, but we will be keeping an eye on any emerging bugs and improvements w...

Patch 1.4.25 Notes

Now that the flurry of events from the Rivals Online Championship Series has concluded, we're taking the opportunity to make some changes across the cast. Added angle flipper 10. This sends in the direction that the player is moving. When set to "Run" the training mode AI will now turn around when hitting a wall. Extended parry stun minimum value increased from 50 frames > 60 frames. Maximum value is still 100 frames. Dan: ...

Patch 1.4.24 Notes

You can now start training mode with only 1 player. If hitpause is interrupted by another hit, your ASDI will happen immediately. ASDI is still checked in the middle of hitpause, so you won't be able to ASDI if hitpause is interrupted before then. Incompatible replays will now show the version number in the replay menu. Holding the walk button will now prevent tap jumping with the dpad/keyboard controls. Dashing left now be...

Patch 1.4.22 Notes

The game should no longer crash when hovering over a replay saved from the workshop branch. Buffering an attack after a parried jab will no longer put you in parry stun. (This does not apply to anything that cancels the jab.) Stage collision extended by 1000px downward to prevent objects like Ranno's bubble from getting stuck under the stage. Playtest room platforms raised 4px to match the average platform height. Pressing ...

Patch 1.4.20 Notes

A small patch containing mostly fixes for some odds and ends. This patch will be what the RCS World Finals are played on at Genesis 7 later this month! Basic version of Merchant Port/Swampy Estuary dimensions fixed to match the Aether version (side blastzones increased by 2px). This fixes a bug with Sylvanos on Merchant Port that allowed him to grow grass underneath already existing grass. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/10071875/d90916...
