Hi guys and welcome to the Rules Corner, an article series where we go over rulings made within the game — whether older overlooked rules or those recently made on the WIN Rules Forum — and how they affect the greater game.
We were given a preview of many Standard powers that would be changing, powers like Hypersonic Speed, Probability Control, Mind Control and many others.
However once the new rules dropped we discovered that there were powrrs standard powers that were changed as well. Now it has a more thematic flavour to it by specifying what the character can no longer use, instead of outright changing them.
Pass or automatically break away. At first glance it may be hard to see what has been changed about this power. Plasticity no longer causes a character to outright stop when they become adjacent to them. This essentially does the same thing, annd a character from moving around them.
This acts more as a deterrent than anything else and with the changes to Hypersonic which was covered in the March reveal the previous hedoclix it worked is no longer necessary.
Make a close attack targeting all adjacent opposing characters. If more than one character is targeted, each hit character is dealt 2 damage instead of normal damage. The new wording now allows you to single target quake, dealing your full damage to a single character as well as knocking them back equal to the damage as well.
Minimum range value 4. Place up to 6 hindering markers within range, each adjacent to at least one other, and at least one marker must be within line of fire.

Opposing characters occupying a marker modify attack At the beginning of your next turn, even if this is lost remove them. Functionally this power works exactly the way it did before, the only change that was made to it is that Characters that Ignore Hindering Terrain are no longer safe from the -1 Attack Modifier for occupying carrd Smoke Cloud Marker. This is another minor tweak to a power. The only change made is abilitjes you can no longer stack your heals when attacking multiple characters simultaneously.
This was a rare circumstance but was a valid strategy any time you were able to give a Vampire character Quake.
Powers and Abilities
Minimum range value 6, Improved Targeting: Pick up an object light or heavy within range and line of fire, then give a RANGE Object Action at no cost or place it in a square within range and line of fire.
Minimum range value 6. Place one hegoclix single-base character within range and line of fire into another square within range and line of fire. If the target is an opposing character, first make a range attack and the hit character is then placed instead of normal damage.
Aside from the previously revealed Power Changes, this one is the biggest. Note that Throwing an object and moving a character are now two different Power Actions. If this character is holding an object, make a range attack targeting a single character that, instead of normal damage, deals 2 damage if the object is light or 3 damage if the object is heavy.
Immediately abilitiees the attack resolves, KO the object. When using the Power Action to move a character this basics of the original power are still there while removing some of the more complicated rules surrounding it. The final and possibly most game changing change is that there is no longer a size restriction to Telekinesis, you are now able hroclix TK a Giant or a Colossal so long as they are a single based character.
Immediately after the attack resolves, hefoclix that piece of Blocking terrain. This is a very big change from how this ability used to function. You are no longer able to shoot through multiple squares of blocking terrain and are restricted to a single piece of blocking, which in most cases will be a wall of a single Barrier Token. A small boost cars the Dolphin characters giving them a defense boost while they occupy Water Terrain.
This character can use the chosen team ability until you choose again. This one is an interesting change but does make sense while streamlining the rules and making rules universal. Previously Wild Card characters were able to change the ability they were copying multiple times within a single turn.
That part of the ability has been removed and they are now subject to the Free Action rule that prevents them from performing the same Free Action twice in a turn. The rulebook has been completely rewritten from the ground up and split in two, the basic necessary rules of the game along with a Comprehensive Rulebook that is intended to be used by Judges and Higher Level Competitive Players. Due to the extensive amount of rewritting there are many more nuanced changes that have been changed but I wanted to point out the main changes that were made.
Three new types of Map Terrain were introduced into the game: Obscuring Terrain, Doors and Windows. It is indicated by a white boundary herocpix. Obscuring terrain is considered hindering terrain for line of fire purposes only. It is not considered hindering terrain or a clear square for any other effect. Obscuring terrain does not impede movement in any way. Windows are indicated by dashed blue squares with a black outline.
Windows are considered walls and therefore blocking terrain for all effects, including destroying it. Same as for walls. Windows do not impede line of fire in any way. Doors are indicated by dashed white squares with a black outline. Door are considered walls and therefore blocking terrain for all effects, including destroying it. Doors do not impede movement in any way. Replacing a character will KO any equipment currently equipped to them Theme Team Probability control is now calculated 1 use for each character with the Keyword up to a maximum of 5.
Characters are unable to Theme Prob themselves and can use it even if they were given an action that turn. As mentioned above the Comprehensive Powrrs is a complimentary resource that contains more advanced rules and clarifications for corner cases.
It is meant to be used by Judges and the more competitive of players but happens to contain one of the biggest changes made within the New Rules: If no other friendly characters have been given this same action this turn and this character is equal or more points than the ID powerx, place the ID character adjacent, then remove this ID card from the game and your opponent scores it.
The ID character returns to your Sideline: ID Cards are no longer called in at the beginning of the turn. They can be called in at any time during the Action Phase though you can still only bring in one character per turn To add to that a character no longer needs to be clear in order to call someone in.
Both of this changes are huge and will greatly affect how ID cards will be used in the game. As the Inspire herkclix triggers when the character is placed, friendly characters that later become adjacent do not get to use the Inspiration ability. Characters that are adjacent when the ID character is placed can freely move away and still use the Inspiration ability until your next turn, regardless of what happens to the ID card or the ID character. This is a more subtle change but one that will make a difference in how certain ID Cards are played.
The inspiration from a called in Character is an effect give to those that were adjacent at the time they were called in. So even if they move away they can still benefit. That being said any character that become adjacent after the fact will not benefit.
At the end of both rule books there is a section listed as Past Rules. This calls out those game elements that are no longer Modern in the game and there are no current plan to bring them back into the game. This includes much older elements like Battlefield Conditions and Feats as well as more recent elements like ATAs and Relics along with a few surprising ones like Real Names. All of these elements still function the way they used but more or less being left in dust as the game moves forwards.
The Damage Depletion Csrd has been completely abi,ities from the game. It was a rule that had been put in place during the early days of ajd Watch List as a way to hsroclix in the Team Bases. With Team Bases out of modern and thankfully no plans to have them return any time in the near future the rule is no longer necessary and hinders characters that were never intended to be hindered cafd it. In conclusion there is a lot that has actually changed, much more than I was even able to point out here though most of the changes have been made to fard game language itself but not to the actual function of the game.

Sideline rules have made their first appearance in the Heroclix Rulebook specifying all the relevant rules regarding it. Free actions are no longer able to be activated during the Beginning or end of turn.
If an effect would cause this to happen, place action tokens on the character until it has two action tokens and ignore the rest.
