6.30 Patch Notes (November 14, 2018 )
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where some sounds from Shockwave didn't play for other players.

6.10 Patch Notes (October 16, 2018 )
  • Updated sounds for Shocktower impacts and Shockwave ability trigger

Patch 5.0 (July 12, 2018)

Ability Rebalance
  • Shockwave
    • Increased base damage from 75 to 91.
    • Decreased cooldown from 30 to 25 seconds.

Patch 4.0 (May 1, 2018)

  • Hero Abilities that lock the character's movement can no longer be interrupted by knockback. The following abilities have been adjusted to use this new behaviour:
    • ‘Phase Shift’
    • ‘Shockwave’
    • ‘Bullrush’
    • ‘Dragonslash’
    • ‘Anti-Material Charge’
  • ‘Shockwave’ no longer causes the Soldier to collide with enemies. This should prevent the “crowd surfing” behaviour seen when using ‘Shockwave’ on tightly packed groups of enemies.

Patch 3.1.0 (February 27, 2018)

  • Fixed an issue that caused the Soldier's ‘Shockwave’ damage to be delayed.

Patch 3.0.0 (February 20, 2018)

  • Fixed issue causing players to lose control of their character if a Troll Bomb was destroyed with Soldier's “Shockwave”.

Patch 1.8.1 (November 1, 2017)

  • The Soldier’s Shockwave ability has been rebalanced as we felt it was a bit underwhelming.
    • Base damage increased from 30 to 75.
    • Impact damage decreased from 1895 to 1695.

Patch 1.7.2 (October 17, 2017)

  • Players should no longer get stuck by the Shockwave ability animation if knocked back by the effect.
