Meet the new season and major update — “Fangs”!

1 December 2021
Update

As you already know, the new season brings many new opportunities to outsmart, trap, and destroy your opponents, but that's not all!

Bram van Helsing and his ability ‘Flock of bats’

A new Champion arrives in the game, the fearsome Bram van Helsing. A wealthy Dutch nobleman, occultist, hematophagous, whose obsessive desire to drink blood soon led him to a Rehab center, where he heard about the F.O.A.D. murder games and, without thinking twice, joined in.

He didn't need treatment any more, for he had now found a way to satisfy his thirst. He mastered the "Flock of bats" ability, which allowed him to levitate and move quickly in bat form.

While in this state, Bram gets "vampirism" and 50% of the damage done to the enemy is returned in the form of health, while his transformation into a flock of bats allows him to move at high speed. Damage to the Champion is reduced by 50%, and during the "Sun Eclipse" ritual by 70%. But stay away from the "Killing Sun" ritual or you will take increased damage.
