  • PASSIVE: Spark of Genius
    • Ultimate Accelerants fully charge Wattson’s ultimate. Standing near the Interception Pylon boosts Wattson’s tactical recharge rate.
  • TACTICAL: Perimeter Security
    • Create electrified fences by connecting nodes. Fences damage and slow enemies.
  • ULTIMATE: Interception Pylon
    • Place an electrified pylon that destroys incoming ordnance and repairs damaged shields [can place up to 3 Pylons at one time].

RANKED LEAGUES

Check out the full details on our goals, how Ranked Mode works, and more here.

One thing we forgot to mention in the blog post: Players abandoning in Ranked will be penalized both with a matchmaking penalty, as well as have any potential RP gains zeroed out. On top of that, they will pay an additional penalty RP cost equal to their match entry cost. For example: if a Gold player gets 4 kills and would have finished top 5 but abandons his or her match on purpose, that player will get 0 RP for kills and placement, pay the 2 RP entry cost, and on top of that pay another 2 RP abandon penalty cost.
