    @Molly i thought that vivian bug was intended, and can it be changed to kills with talon rifle as well?

    Definitely a strange one, but not something we intended!

    Weekly Wisdom with @Neco : Keep getting surprised by Champions engaging you suddenly out of stealth? Can't find that pesky stealthed flank? Try picking up Illuminate, which increases the area in which a stealthed enemy is revealed.

  • RE: Confusion about cross-progression.

    Hey! In game names and "gamertags" are not actually something that transfers between platforms with cross-progression, they are unique to the platform you're playing on. What does transfer is all your progression and content.

    So, for example, on PC my in game name is "EvilMojoMolly" and on Switch my name is "MollyBot." Because my accounts are linked, all my Crystals, Gold, Champ levels, and owned content like skins & Champions will be the same on both accounts, the only thing that is different is the name.

    Something to note: Just because of how the platform works, Switch names are not unique, which means that multiple accounts can have the name "Mollybot." On PC, however, names are unique. So there can only be one "EvilMojoMolly" and you'll receive an error message if you tried to name yourself something that is already taken.

    I know that's a lot of info, so let me know if anything I said doesn't make sense.

    Weekly Wisdom with Paladins Game Designer, @Neco:

    Positioning can make or break contesting an objective. Make sure to keep an eye on your team and move as a group! Sometimes being aware of your support's position can save their lives so that they can return the favor later.
