Although it's not a large patch, there's some quality of life improvements in v33. Take a look at the full notes below with the highlight likely to be better options for justification when surrendering. 

Welcome to our V.33 Release, we have interactive tutorial, some new skins, an and a double community pick card pack!

Interactive Tutorial
To help our newer players learn the basics we have implemented an interactive tutorial. It will be available as a playlist alongside PvP, Co-op and Solo vs AI. It will provide a play through tutorial on a one-lane map to help educate about the more basic MOBA aspects of the game.

News Skins/Emote
We have an awesome batch of skins for the community to check out, the first of which is the spectacularly spooky Undertow Gideon our next Tier 3 skin. Followed by Sun Tiger Khaimera and Opaline Fey adding to our skin roster.

Have you ever wanted an additional way to express your delight at landing a hook on Riktor? Well now you can with our newest emote “Jump Chains.”


Weekly Card Pack
As promised we have brought back Tainted Magick for this week’s card pack, although with a slight change where it now only applies one stack but dealing the equivalent of three stacks of poison.

Next up our first of two Epic Rare cards, Blinkshot! It is a Blink Charm that allows you teleport in the direction you choose however, this active ability resets on Hero kill or assist.

We round out the pack with our second Epic Rare, Scarab Claws which provides with a passive ability which allows you to shred all armor off shielded targets when you hit them. A great card to use against any Muriels or Feng Maos you may run into.
