(Patch Notes) (22.07.2020) Update 2.10

This update includes some brand-new features, along with some existing feature and balance changes. There’s a lot to cover, so here’s everything you need to know:


Gold Bars & the Bazaar. 

Gold Bars are a special resource that can be won from battling in Tag Arena and as a weekly reward from your Tag Arena Tier placement. Gold Bars can then be exchanged at the Bazaar for rare and valuable items.



The Bazaar itself gives you access to a wide range of highly sought-after or exclusive items, which can only be acquired by exchanging them for Gold Bars. 


Players in higher Tag Arena Tiers will earn more Gold Bars, but they'll also have access to a wider selection of rarer items at the Bazaar


Your Tag Arena Tier also determines which Bazaar Slots are open to you and therefore which Items you’re able to get. For example, players in Silver Tiers won’t have access to items in Gold Slots, but will be able to acquire all items from Bronze or Silver Slots.


Bronze Slots are open to everyone, while higher Tier Slots will open immediately as soon as you reach the required Tier.


Items at the Bazaar may have cooldowns or purchase limits. Cooldowns at the Bazaar won’t be temporarily paused if you are demoted to a lower Tier while a cooldown is active.






Bazaar-exclusive Accessories. 

We’re adding two brand-new types of Accessories that can only be acquired at the Bazaar. Both types of Accessories are unique in that they also have Special Effects that can greatly impact a Champion’s performance in Battle. The two new Accessory types are:


Cleansing Accessories. 8% chance to remove 1 random debuff from the wearer each turn.



Refresh Accessories. 5% chance to prevent a Skill going on cooldown after use.



The Special Effects from these Accessories stack if multiple Accessories of the same type are equipped. And like always, each Accessory has its own Rank, Rarity, and Faction.


Champion Fragments. 

Champion Fragments allow you to summon specific Champions once you've collected enough Fragments. Each Champion has their own set of Fragments that are only used to summon that Champion. For example, Foli's fragments can only be used to summon Foli, and can't be used to summon Dracomorph or any other Champion.


Right now, each Champion needs 100 Fragments - but you can always collect more if you want more than one of those Champions. Champion Fragments can't be sold, swapped, transformed, or transferred to another Champion.


You can get Champion Fragments from Events and Tournaments.



More Daily Login Rewards. 

We’ve extended the Daily Login Reward program to 270 days. Log into the game regularly to receive Shards, Resources, Skill Tomes, and much more. For reaching the 210th and 240th days, you'll receive all-new Epic Champions… and on the 270th day, you’ll get a free Void Legendary Champion!


Here are the new Daily Login Reward Champions:


Tainix Hateflower

Rarity: Epic

Type: Support

Affinity: Force

Faction: Demonspawn


Ghrush the Mangler

Rarity: Epic

Type: DEF

Affinity: Spirit

Faction: Ogryn Tribes


Visix the Unbowed

Rarity: Legendary

Type: DEF

Affinity: Void

Faction: Dark Elves

Tag Team Arena Improvements



  • - Added the Tiers tab in Tag Arena.
  • - Added information about new Accessories to the Arena Rewards info page.
  • - Fixed visual bug: The number of Tag Team Arena Points won for each Battle is now displayed correctly in the Battle tab in cases when you lose 1 Battle of 3.
  • - Fixed a bug that resulted in opening Champion info from the Chat while battling in Tag Team Arena.
  • - Champions chosen as Leaders in Tag Arena Defenses now remain in the team after being ascended.
  • - Fixed a bug that caused the game to freeze when tapping “Skip Battle” and your device’s native “Back” button at the same time on Android, or “Skip Battle” and “Esc” on Plarium Play.

  • - Fixed the format of Battle counter in the top-right corner of the screen.
  • - Added music to Tag Team Arena Battles.
  • - Fixed a low resolution issue with the result screen shown between Battles.

Champion Fixes

The following changes have been introduced to make these Champions or Skills work as intended:


  • - Target selection now works correctly on Auto.
  • - The error that occurred upon killing a Champion whose HP had been both increased and then decreased has been fixed.
  • - The lag that occurred when using the [Reflect Damage] buff in combination with Passive Skills that revive Champions has been fixed.
  • - The [Unkillable] buff no longer gets removed prematurely.
  • - Skills that ignore the [Unkillable] buff, for example, Rotos the Lost Groom’s Fated Destruction skill, will now ignore the [Unkillable] buff only if those skills inflict enough damage to kill the target from the skill itself (before Giant Slayer or Warmaster mastery “rolls”).
  • - Fixed the bug that allowed Tormin the Cold to place a [Freeze] debuff on Champions that tried to put buffs while they were under the block buffs debuff. Now he will only place a [Freeze] debuff if the enemy receives a buff.
  • - The [Provoke] debuff placed by Tormin the Cold is now removed when Tormin is killed.
  • - Tormin the Cold will now ignore all Mastery effects as intended with his Wintry Wind [P] skill.

  • - Foli’s Living Armor [P] skill now works correctly against Tormin the Cold.
  • - Hound Spawn now ignores DEF with the [Shattering Strike] skill.
  • - Suzerain Katonn now inflicts damage to all enemies after removing the [Block Damage] buff from them with the Banish From Time skill.
  • - Arbiter now correctly fills the Turn Meters of all allies by 20% with the Destiny's Call skill.
  • - Elhain now has an extra 15% chance of inflicting a critical hit with the ascended Lightning Arrow skill.
  • - Mortu-Macaab now correctly places [Block Revive] when killing an enemy with the Peril skill when the Warmaster Mastery is used.
  • - Skullcrown’s From Beyond [Passive] skill now works correctly when she is under a [Shield] buff and is attacked with a skill that ignores the [Shield].
  • - Dracomorph and Baron will now attack all remaining enemies with any surplus damage only if their default skill kills the target.
  • - Fireblade’s Burning Spear skill will now have +5% Damage on 3rd, 5th, and 6th Skill Levels instead of Buff/Debuff Chance.
  • - Fixed a bug that caused Kantra the Cyclone’s HP bar to indicate an incorrect amount.

Visual Fixes


  • - The visualization of Rotos the Lost Groom’s skills has been fixed including an animation bug that occurred when Rotos receives a [Freeze] debuff.
  • - Rotos the Lost Groom’s HP is now always displayed correctly.
  • - The [HP Burn] effect is now displayed correctly against Bosses.
  • - The visualization of revives from Passive Skills has been fixed for the following Champions: Altan, Brakus the Shifter, Minaya, Skull Lord Var-Gall, Tormin the Cold, Alika, Basilisk, Bushi, Sikara, Skullcrown, Torturehelm, Hospitaller, Master Butcher.

  • - A popup is now shown when there are no empty slots when attempting to fuse a Champion. No resources will be wasted.
  • - Fixed an error that occurred when receiving a Faction Wars reward.
  • - Balance change: Multi-hit skills that place [Sleep] debuffs will now no longer remove [Sleep] debuffs with additional hits if an earlier hit placed the debuff in the first place. The [Sleep] debuff will be removed by attacks as usual after that turn is finished.
  • - Fixed an error that occurred during Battles with Kael, Elhain, Galek or Athel in the team.
  • - Fixed how Event Rewards display on low-resolution devices.
  • - When your Inbox is full, Artifacts or Accessories won from Battles can be sold only after the Battle, and not from your Inbox.
  • - The red dot indicator will now disappear correctly from the Events interface.
  • - The Level-Up popup will now appear before any new feature popups are shown when both occur at the same time.

Shame you chose to keep the locked tag arena market. Blocking it behind ranks makes it pointless since you didn't fix the original problem with it


Also how come there are almost no champion buffs? There are so many legendaries that guard the vault which makes it stupid calling them legendaries. 


Thank you for your work devs, i just hope your management can get things right.

Hi there, 

thanks for your work devs - this is not against you, I'm pretty sure, you could do all the stuff, most players wait for. 

I'm in a state of being ashamed for Plariums decision-makers: Hordin-fragments?  Wow, that will help a lot of players and give them a good feeling - TagTeamArena - rewards (which already is only for the well-developed accounts), gated some more through tiers? Most of your players won't even get any reward... not even participating in this feature... That is all you got for us?


But: Fixes for Classic-Arena-Tiers delayed (as if it wasn't on purpose that it became that bad in the first place), cheats untouched, no Battle-Pass, no VoidTower, no quality-of-life improvements - oh wow, we have a new offer for glyphs... Who should care or be happy about this update? 

Does your company gain so much profit from forcing newer and not so well informed players to buy your packs, thinking it will enable them to "progress"? What about the thought, that it might generate as much profit when people are satisfied in the way they should be playing the game and enjoy spending on it? It is just so sad, I loved the game, but it becomes worse and worse. I stopped spending (which I did regularly and with no regrets) some weeks ago and I will not spend any money on this game unless there is a significant change in the approach to address players (which might never happen so I will quit eventually) - And I hope that many, many players - and content creators (!) - do the same. What's the point of all these content and "how-to"-guides if players are forced in spending a lot of money and incredibly overwhelming effort to get the simplest tasks done (like "reach silver I") and then the next paywall occurs...? No one should support or feature this game in a positive way at the moment. 


Kind regards,

Malina

What exactly do you mean with the Dracomorph change? (Also, it's worded poorly, since he does not attack all remaining enemies with surplus damage, and it sounds like he will now)  

Wasn't it always the case? It sounds like he could attack with surplus damage even if it didn't kill the enemy?

Can you explain in more detail?

In same boat

Plarium is fixing stuff that ain't broken and not fixing the broken ones

Adding stuff that none asked for and not adding what everyone is asking for 

Every update is getting lazier and lazier

The Ai on auto is absolutely abysmal and should have been fixed year ago ( re champs spamming A1 on IG boss adds as example )
Void Tower still nowhere  ( but yay we got 3v3 arena that none cares for )

Still no solution for lego dupes and 70% of lego vault guardians

Wait you guys nerfed Tormin too? How is he the counter to the speed meta if his passive doesn't work anymore?

I'm offended with those login rewards. Do you EVER think a player who has played more than 180 days needs rare books, silver, and useless stuff?

0 legendary books. Really, this is getting out of hand. That lego could be an epic easily, what a mess. So dissapointed with this game

Hey, are you guys planning to refund Tormin's books at the very least? Fusing Tormin wasn't cheap. That fusion took all void champions to fuse. And it was a long fusion over the holiday too. People did it anyway because Plarium said he was the "counter" to the speed meta. Players sank books into him and books in this game don't come by easily. Kind of scummy to pull a bait and switch. Give the option to refund his books at the very least.

The gold bar numbers at the bottom of the screen under tiers are the number of bars you will get at arena reset.

Love your game, your design and idea, but the way and the path you are giving to the game will curse it, if you continue no hearing the community you will die with a good game and a good idea, better games out there had die with less...just hear the players

1-Fix bronce 4 - silver 1 mission progress, just delete that mission, add more ranks, delete the players that does not pay anymore from arena

2- Level 1 champion to counter speed in arena, just make that in gold1+ you need a certain power in your champion to be used, or at least 5 stars to be used.. that so simple

3- Battle pass please......

4- Fix cheaters in gold4- platinum, give them a week ban so they stop doing this...

5- Rework useless legendaries, it is stupid to see a shiny popping up and be ashame to pull a trash legendary, legendaries never going to be better than a rare champion.... people are happier to get a cold heart/man eater/bellower than most of the legendaries, this cant be right, at least give certain purpouse to each legendary........

 YOU JUST NEED TO HEAR YOUR COMMUNITY OR YOUR GAME WILL DIE, if you want ask which champion needs a "buff" and you can focus on that....

I just don't understand why classic arena fixes are delayed. That was a BAD move Plarium.

Even the content creators are trashing you over the handling of arena.

2.2 better be hot on the heels of this patch.

This is what Tormin Skill says:




This is what Valkyrie wrote:


- Fixed the bug that allowed Tormin the Cold to place a [Freeze] debuff on Champions that tried to put buffs while they were under the block buffs debuff. Now he will only place a [Freeze] debuff if the enemy receives a buff.




Fixing the buff that allowed Tormin to Freeze people under Block Buff Debuffs = Good!



NOW WE COME TO THE ISSUE AT HAND - ONLY PLACES FREEZE DEBUFF IF ENEMY RECIEVES A BUFF?

WHERE IS THE TURN METER FILLING?



If Tormin no longer Freezes people who receive Buffs + Turn Meter Filling, Tormin will become a garbage champion.

The only reason we use Tormin is to counter Fast Pace - Speed Nuking teams which do Buffs + Turn Meter Filling.

Nice to see something is getting fixed but...

1. Arena is still broken. Almost impossible to progress now as an old FTP with good champs that were sufficient for gold 3 about a month ago.

2. Champions from the new daily rewards are trash. Worse than the previous ones and focused on faction wars which is not rly a priority for FTP because its too hard. 

How can you give us so bad champs at such level of game. Just compare scyl of Drakes and the new legendary. I would risk saying that the new legendary is worse choice than many rares, not to mention epics. Where are these champions good ? Arena - no since they do not heal much and they decrease speed which is completely useless debuff. ClanBoss? No. You dont use decrease speed on CB. Soo maybe dungeons ? No, not rly. Because of the same reasons.  

The ogryn is the only reasonable champ since he heals a bit, and may drop some usefull debuffs, but he is still so weak on comparison to current meta... 

3. Rewards for daily logins are just badly balanced. One time its 500 energy and the other its 50 gems or 10 brews. And still no lego books. Wtf? Energy refresh costs 40 gems. How can you give 500 energy one time and 50 gems the other time. So inconsistent.

4. Bazar is just a joke. No point even using it. Getting to gold is extremely hard. Silver rewards are just ridiculous. To book a epic champ you need about 10-15 books, do it will take few months to do it. For 1 champ. Rare shards are somewhat reasonable. But the rest is just bad. 

5. Maybe watch some content creators. They are giving you valid feedback for months and you mostly ignore all of it. 

If this keeps up, this game will die before I book my newest epic champ xD

remove the tier AND player restrictions on the bazaar.  it is stupid to have.  it prevents everyone from benefiting and doesn't help anyone.


Also, WTF, you preview the cost, of shards / books, and now they are 20-25% MORE GOLD BARS?  WITH OUT REMOVING THE TIER RESTRICTION? 


Your game deserves to die.

Well Plarium,

You have shot yourself in the foot again. I hope you don't bleed out. 

You don't listen to your player base and you continue to paywall everything. As a clan leader I can see the player turn over that results from your poor design choices. This game seems to be only for those who are paying you to play. As soon as a similar game comes along from a company that actually knows how to create a game of this type, this game will die. Sad. So sad.

I don't think you really understand how to design a game. Maybe you should just stop and find a new line of work.

Cheers.

One is to wonder who comes up with these daily login rewards and the rewards from the bazaar.  You’re giving out no leg books and only 3 epic books to people who have been playing for at least 6 months.  The rewards are trash.  


The hardest thing in this game is getting books for your champs and you’ve done nothing to make that easier for the FTP players.   You put them in events and tournaments that you’d have to pay for energy to reach.  


This patch does nothing for the FTP player and it doesn’t even do anything to encourage them to keep playing.  Maybe that is your intent so you’ll get more PTP players.   


Very disappointing to see the daily rewards and nothing for the FTP or PTP players.
