    Systems

    VIP Program

    As we approach launch, the development team is taking a close look at all of Paladins’ core systems. We’ve made great progress in recent patches, cleaning up our UI, launching our first event, and fixing long standing bugs. With that in mind, we are removing the VIP Program at the end of OB69, and introducing a new system - the Battle Pass - to replace it in a future update.

    The VIP program had a number of issues, and this is another big step towards Paladins’ future. Be sure to read up on the full details surrounding the removal of VIP HERE.

    We’re introducing all past VIP skins into the store rotation in OB69, so players who missed out on the previous great deals will now have a chance to spend their VIP Points on them!

    • New skins added to VIP rotation for 30,000 VIP Points
      • Oni (Talus)
      • Steam Demon (Androxus)
      • Plushy (Makoa)
      • Ice Walker (Inara)
      • Swashbuckler (Barik)
      • Genie (Ying)
      • Dire Wolf (Tyra)
      • Code Green Bandolier (Viktor)
      • Code Green Comms (Viktor)
      • Code Green Grenadier (Viktor)
      • Code Green Trooper (Viktor)
      • Chancellor (Mal’Damba)
      • Night Bane (Cassie)
      • Hemlock (Willo)
      • Troublemaker (Evie)
      • Cutthroat (Kinessa)
      • Snapdragon (Ying)
      • Ronin (Ash)
      • Dutchman (Makoa)
      • Kunoichi (Skye)
      • Triggerman (Buck)

    Players with VIP time and points remaining in the update after OB69 will be compensated as follows:

    • VIP Membership Time Remaining
      • 4 Crystals per day of VIP remaining
    • VIP Tier
      • Players at Tiers 3, 4, 5 with receive an exclusive Avatar
      • Players at Tier 5 will receive the first Battle Pass (Includes a Legendary Mount) free
    • VIP Points in inventory
      • 1 Gold Chest for every 10,000 VIP Points up to 100,000
      • 1 Diamond Chest for every 50,000 VIP Points after 100,000
    • VIP Team Boosters
      • Converts 1:1 with a Battle Pass Team Booster
    • Boosts
      • Booster Weapons have been made unavailable to purchase
      • Account Boosts will be removed at the end of OB69
      • Players with an active Booster Weapon or Account Boost will keep their boost until it runs out
    • Esports Picks
      • Will be merged into our Battle Pass system once released!


    Sprays & Global Equips

    After OB69, Paladins will be moving to a global spray equip system. That means you will no longer have sprays locked to specific champions, and instead will be able to use all sprays no matter which Champion you want to play. We will be removing Champion-specific Mastery Sprays once OB69 goes live, and players will be refunded with the currency they purchased the spray with.

    After OB69, players will no longer be able to unlock skin and card art sprays. We will be focusing on making higher quality and more desirable sprays as we get closer to Paladins’ launch. Players will still be able to unlock skin and card art sprays in OB69, and will retain any sprays unlocked in the new global spray equip system!
    • Sprays are becoming Global equips after OB69
      • Mastery Sprays will be removed in OB69
        • Players will be compensated with the currency purchased with.
      • Skin and Card Art sprays will only be obtainable until the end of OB69.


    PPL Picks

    • The PPL Picks system is now active on PC and console! Choose the team you think will win each match, then tune in and see if you picked correctly!
    • Since the system was inactive for the first three weeks of PPL, all players who log in during OB69 will be awarded 3,000 VIP points.

    You think you have a problem Grover hasn't had a skin in at least 50 years he doesn't have any mastery items, It's the cold, sad truth of enjoying to play Grover
    Skye is cool give her power, or she'll blow you up within the hour

    Looking forward to seeing what Khan's recolour skin will look like (please be black or blue)

    His Gun shows black for the recolour so I'm assuming he'd have a black recolour too
