Shadow Fight Arena Steam

Shadow Fight Arena is a free online 3D fighting game on Android and iOS. It received a new update that implemented balancing changes. Patch has nerfed Marcus and buffed Jet. Other heroes also received some adjustments.

Hero Adjustments

It looks like Marcus is one of the heavily nerfed heroes in this update. According to the developers, he has been the strongest hero for quite some time, which prompted some changes.

His heavy attack damage is reduced by 17%. Moreover, the special attack damage from the last attack is reduced by 30%. But here’s the real bummer: the chances of him dealing a critical strike is reduced by half.

Ironclad is on a similar boat as Marcus. His odds to critically strike an opponent is reduced by half as well. Besides that, the damage increase coefficient from his level six talent, Adrenaline, is reduced to just 1.2.

On the other hand, Jet has received some pretty good adjustments to improve her win rate. For instance, the physical damage multiplier of her Wasteland Harmony ability is increased to 1.1 at one stack but decreased from 1.85 to 1.75 at 16 stacks.

Jet’s 10th level talent, Sand Storm, has its physical and shadow damage multipliers at one stack increased to 1.21 but it is reduced from 1.85 to 1.78 at 16 stacks.
