MultiVersus Free Rotation Bug To Be Fixed Later, LeBron James to Return

When the Season 1.01 Patch was added to MultiVersus yesterday, it introduced the new character Morty but also brought along a bug with the free rotation characters. Player First Games has assured players the bug will be fixed later today and that the free rotation characters will be returned to the previous lineup that included LeBron James.

Free rotation characters disappeared without warning

Before Season 1.01 Patch was released for MultiVersus, the free rotation characters were LeBron James, Steven Universe, Batman, and Arya Stark. When the patch was released, LeBron James and Steven Universe were removed from the free rotation without warning and were replaced with Bugs Bunny and Velma. Player First Games has confirmed this was not a deliberate change and it was a bug that was introduced with the new Morty Smith character. This change will be fixed today at midnight PDT through a “brief 5 min maintenance mode.” The new free rotation characters will then change on August 30.

Meanwhile, the new character Morty is a Bruiser class character whose moveset can be seen in the trailer above. He comes equipped with a Plumbus all-purpose alien device and his muscle-enhanced left arm Armothy, as well as an ability to whip toward opponents and use projectiles. The patch also made a few tweaks to other characters already in the game. You can find a full list of the Season 1.01 Patch notes below:

General

  • Morty will be arriving tomorrow! 08/23! He will be our first Plumbus-wielding character!
  • This patch is entirely server-side so all updates are Online Only and will not be reflected in local/lab play until the next patch.

General Perks

  • Ice To Beat You! – Projectiles will only apply Ice debuff to fighters that are not already debuffed by Ice.
  • I’ll Take That – Unstacked cooldown refund decreased from 0.5 seconds to 0.25 seconds

Arya

  • + Assassin Passive:
    • Reduced extra damage taken from 14% to 5%.
      • We’re evaluating if this passive should be removed entirely. We want to take a step towards that while trying to not to go too far too fast. We don’t want to create an assassin dominated meta.
      • Movelist Description of this change will not be updated until the next patch

Finn
Since we removed some power from the Backpack on Finn, we’re pushing some additional power into the rest of Finn’s attacks to give him more kill options.

    • Increased base damage from 5 to 6
      • This base damage is increased by holding and charging the attack
  • + Air/Ground Down Special (BMO Chop)
    • Increased Damage from 18 to 20

Iron Giant
Iron giant is currently dominating with abnormally high win rates at every skill level. Iron Giant’s Neutral Special with stacked cooldown reduction and Velma are causing too few windows for opponents to counterplay. Updates to Iron Giant, global updates to perks, and Velma updates should help provide more windows of opportunity for opponents against Iron Giant.

  • – Air/Ground Neutral Special:
    • Increased cooldown from 23s to 25s
  • – Air Up Attack:
    • Hit boxes shrank to more accurate fit the attack visuals
  • – Air/Ground Up Special:
    • Reduced damage by 1 and base knockback on final hit of spin
  • + Air/Ground Down Special:
    • Allow cancel out of Cannonball if it hits an enemy

Superman

  • ~ Fixed a bug that would allow Superman to grapple enemies that wall bounce even if his hitboxes did not connect.

Taz
Taz buffs are incoming in the next patch!

Velma

  • – Air/Ground Down Special:
    • Velma Educated buff reduced cooldown return from 75% over 8 seconds to 50% over 8 seconds.
