Paladins: Patch OB53 will not add a new Champion, but will address lots of Bugs

You know? I felt really good when I was playing Paladins and developed guides. In the meantime, a lot of new Champions were added to the game. So, I guess there’s no excuse except to go back in and finish what I’ve started at first place. Paladins has grown by far, adding new Champions, maps, new game modes which are the very best reason the game’s is currently in this position. Oh, not to forget to say that Paladins is still growing. That’s why Hi-Rez decides to improve the game even more by addressing bugs in the upcoming patch OB53.

Besides the Bug Fixes, the game will receive a brand new Ice Mount looks astonishing and will cost 5$. As always, new Champion skins will also be added, enabling players to customize their favorite champion the way they like. When it comes down to game’s balance, Paladins was missing only one thing. Bans. Bans will be introduced with the OB53 patch, making players enjoy its competitive gameplay. This feature will be added to Draft competitive match lobby only.

Honestly, Hi-Rez has never stopped developing great content to Paladins, which the actual reason why its community still grows at a fast pace. You can find out the bug fixes below. If you love to see all the patch notes, visit The Official Website.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
