Disney Speedstorm is still in its early access phase and as part of this Gameloft is rolling out regular updates changing certain fixes and balance patches.

Following concerns from the community about the Monsters, Inc. representative Mike Wazowski being OP, the character has now been nerfed. His "Hold the Door" move in normal activation will now only spawn a single door instead of two, with his charged activation still spawning two doors.

The distance players can be teleported by these doors (in both directions) has also been cut by 10% and doors now disappear after 10 seconds instead of 20 seconds. Here are the full patch notes, which also include some changes to Sulley and various other fixes:
