Patch notes for version 1.06 of MultiVersus have been released. As usual, there are quite a number of balance tweaks that either buff or nerf specific characters.
However, it’s also been noted that this patch will mark the alpha test period of MultiVersus’ Ranked Mode. Winning 15 ranked sets during this alpha period will award players with the “Triumphant Toast Alpha” profile icon as a thanks for those that participate.
It’s important to keep in mind that this ranked alpha period will only go on for a limited time before its taken down. MultiVersus’ Ranked Mode will be available starting at 9 a.m. PST on November 8, and will last until November 15.
Players will be able to participate in ranked matches as a 2v2 team or go it solo in 1v1. The team hopes to fix any bugs that come up during the alpha period, then release the fixed version later on, so expect plenty of bugs during the Ranked Mode experience for now.
Aside from that, this patch has made it a point to buff the latest addition to the roster, Black Adam. Attacks have either received improved hitboxes or will see their actions through faster than before.
Check out all the patch notes below:
This patch also includes the beginning of our Ranked Alpha, which officially begins at 9AM PST on November 8th and will conclude on November 15th. Compete against players in either Teams or 1 vs 1 matches to earn Ranked Points (RP) and climb the ladder. Winning 15 ranked sets during the Alpha rewards you with a special “Triumphant Toast Alpha” profile icon as a thank you for helping us make ranked the best it can be.
We will be using this time to test our ranked systems and gather feedback, so please report any issues or bugs at the official MultiVersus bug-reporting website https://multiversus.bugs.wbgames.com/
