A new balance patch has been released as of August 18, 2021 at 12AM PDT / 7:00 UTC. The English twitter announced the patch two hours late, and with significantly reduced patch notes, so those curious should confirm the official Japanese patch notes at their original source. We've provided a full translation on our Patch Notes page.
