In response to some feedback we received and data we’ve reviewed for certain Superstars’ scaling, we’ve made the following changes to improve the progression experience for each of the following Superstars:
Matt Hardy “Hardy Boyz” -- Changed move progression for “Tornado DDT” Move so that when a area is changed to Yellow Gems, it remains 4 x 2 when evolving from 3 Star Gold to 4 Star Bronze.
“Rowdy” Ronda Rousey -- “Arm Bar” submission Move damage has been increased when Evolving from 3 Star Gold to 4 Star Bronze.
Sgt. Slaughter “Sarge” -- MP Generation for Move “Gutbuster” has been increased when Evolving from 3 Star Gold to 4 Bronze.
The Rock “The People’s Champ” -- As currently designed, the Samoan Drop Move allows the player to ‘Choose a Gem to change into a Heal Gem’. We’ve found that this Move is not as powerful and easily understood by new players. To improve The Rock’s early progression, we’re swapping the functionality of his “Samoan Drop” Move with his “Spinebuster” Move, which currently unlocks at 4-Star Bronze.
This means that the “Samoan Drop” will remain a Black move, but will now cost 8 MP and will allow him to swap random Black Gems into Blue Gems, which should help to fuel his “Rock Bottom” Move. The Rock’s 6th Move, “Spinebuster,” will now instead allow him to Choose Gems to change into Heal Gems, and will cost 6 MP.
These four changes are only affecting these specified Superstars. Please refresh your game to see these changes take effect.
We are providing this information in our continued commitment to transparency.
