    Later today (Tuesday 31) Epic will be releasing the Paragon v.37 patch on the servers.

    The big addition in this Paragon update will be Aurora, the new icy character, but there are numerous changed to the game that will affect players. The main one to note is that players that die five times in a row will dish out less CXP to the opposition. The note says ” now pays out 500 less500 less CP than a non-deathstreak Hero”. This means that a character that is feeding will have less of an impact on the rest of the team. We’ll have to see how that plays out.

    New comms options have also been added but Epic has still to offer key bindings for PC players, a feature that is long overdue.

    We still have no idea about matchmaking tweaks either, the system is still a bit rubbish and really needs to get looked at.

    Here are the notes and check back when the Paragon v.37 patch launches as we’ll be doing one of our regular PC Invasion Plays Paragon hero videos for Aurora.
