Opponents in Versus will now get the full benefit of their Gear abilities!

We are hoping this provides a more true and interesting experience on fighting a hero.

Your opponent’s abilities can be previewed before entering battle by checking an opponent’s stats before battle.
Note: Spell Set Bonuses are not applied to the opponent

We have made a change to how the three opponents are chosen. Currently the options presented are based on your perceived power level, your level, and your points in the Tournament. These were intended to present a few different options not purely based on power. However, these options have understandably brought frustrations among the competitive players vying for the top of the leaderboards. In order to help alleviate some frustrations, we have made the following changes:

– The three opponent options will now be based on:
– Within +/- 10% of your perceived strength
– Greater than +10% of your perceived strength
– The highest strength player in your league

– Opponents you already have a top score registered against should not appear again as possible opponent options. So in the case of the highest strength player in your league, it should grab the next highest, then the next, etc.

– You can sometimes be presented with opponents who did not meet the criteria of the tournament. This can happen if there was absolutely no one else within the matchmaking criteria for you. If this happens again now, we now check for possible opponents again but without any power level restrictions (so could be presented with characters much stronger or weaker than usual).
NOTE: This may still happen under certain circumstances, but less often than before.

Thank you to everyone who has been providing us feedback and being patient as we implement changes to Versus. We believe that the changes make for a more interesting gameplay experience, but understand that it can be frustrating. We’re still keeping an eye on all your feedback to help improve the mode going forward.

In 2.4, we’re hoping to introduce some changes to scoring bonuses, so that it won’t be purely based on your remaining Armor/Life/Resistance.

Beyond that, we also have plans about bringing further parity to the opponent heroes in Versus, so that it can really feel like you’re fighting another hero, and how we can address having so many Versus battles to do each day at the end game level.

Thanks again and please keep sending in your feedback so we can keep making improvements!

– You’ll get a purchase bonus of 250 Crowns immediately

Here you have some errors I found in this post:

The scimitar looks much like the corrupted guard hammer, doesn’t it? :wink:

There are also some duplicates in the bugs section:

Finally, isn’t that already fixed?

Some thoughts on the update.

Is that stun % correct, or is it 10-60%? Because if it is the former, it seems too weak.

Finally! Let’s see if the adventure is as epic as you suggest. I am concerned about the Ultimate difficulty + Persistent health, though. You don’t want us to have an easy time, do you? :sweat_smile:

Nice! I expect the rewards not to be of much use for higher level players (please, prove me wrong on this :wink:), but it should surely help newer players.

I love it! I swap heroes so often that everything that makes this easier and faster is great news for me :blush:

Another nice quality of life improvement, no more need to scroll sideways. Thank you!

Yay, thanks a lot! :heart:

Looking forward to new update, mostly the PvP changes. I hope they are successful on improving the PvP experience. Thank you for your work!

AH! I grabbed the wrong things haha, I’ll update the patch notes now with the correct Season weapon and the duplicate bugs.

Also, yes! The new Hero selector is way better, I have been playing between 3 heroes lately and it makes it so much easier.

And Rage of the Ram is correct @HigureTheStillWind, the 1-6% is the intended percentage chance :ram:

Reminder: Like every update, if someone in your Kingdom gets to update before you, you will be locked out of your Kingdom.

This is not a bug, please do not create bug report threads or report this. It will be resolved as soon as you update the game.

I don’t see it mentioned, but I noticed that we have the “Top 10 battles” list in PVP now. Was it added with this update or a previous one?

It is a new feature.

Just a quick note about some bug fixes being released.

Another quick update:

Citadel +Block bonuses are currently not being applied in ANY game mode.

It’s been reported to the team after a saw a few comments floating around :sparkles:

Can this please be explained? It isn’t working using my math.
Burn damage is meant to take 3% of current health. = 3%
I have 16 stacks of brimstone which is meant to gain 2% burn damage per stack. = 32%
I have 3x Imp gems on the board which should increase the burn damage by 5% per gem. = 15%
I then have Wither on the enemy which is meant to double the effect from any negative status effects.

If you add 3% + 32% + 15% =50%. This is before applying wither which should double it to 100%

Current enemy has 11607 health but on ending turn the burn damage was 2901. This is 25% of current health. (and if i just keep ending turn it is always 25%)

Did they reverse that effect of wither on Burn? That would explain the 25% when 50% is expected.

@shmaunpq Without knowing all the specifics of your build, the board state and any active status effects, I can’t get an accurate answer from your example. If you could grab a video of a battle where you do not think they are applying correctly, that would be super helpful!

In the meantime, I followed this up with the devs in regards to Burn and it is working from what we are able to see.

I have been doing some tests and burning damage seemed to be working fine for me. Most of the times the numbers agree, although sometimes I get deviations from the expected damage, including when fighting poison type enemies and ice type enemies (it seems burning counts as fire type damage). Now, when I tried to reproduce your board state… The same happened to me. It was quite easy to figure the issue, though. Did you have your opponent blinded?

@Jeto It seems that when the opponent is blinded the burning damage gets seriously reduced. Using the same build against the same enemy (orc, to avoid elemental weakness/resistance), when I had it blinded burning did very little damage. When it was not blinded, burning did the damage it was supposed to do (not 100% exactly, I still get some deviations I don’t know where they come from, but still very similar to my calculations).

HigureTheStillWind is correct.

Without doing detailed testing I burnt the enemy using flametree set bonus and doing the numbers in my head the burn damage looked about right with imp gems on the board. On the same enemy in the same battle I then used burning darkness to burn them again which also inflicts blind and the burn damage was greatly reduced with the same number of imp gems on the board. Each time I was just hitting end turn to avoid changing things between burning with and without blind applied.

I’ve also got a report from a guildmate that buying the new Seasonal relic from the shop with the Platinum Pass causes a freeze/lockup.

Working on farming to currency to see if I can duplicate that.
