Patch Notes 1.13

New Features

Powerups

We’ve added a whole new twist to the arena, champions! Now during your battles new buffs will spawn that can give you a competitive edge, but be quick because your opponent will also be on the look out for that upper hand. During each round 2 random powerups will spawn at 10 seconds, 1 at 30 seconds, and 1 at 50 seconds. Standing in the capture circle for 2 seconds will capture the powerup, but if another champion stands on the same powerup, progress will stop. If your opponent manages to knock you off, your claim progress will be reversed. Once you claim a powerup, it will be displayed above your champions head until it wears off.

There are 5 possible powerups that can spawn, and they stack with your champions similar effects!

Damage Increase: Increases damage done by 30% for 10 seconds.

Damage Reduction: Reduces damage received by 30% for 10 seconds.

Movement Increase: Increases movement speed by 30% for 10 seconds.

Cooldown Reset: Resets the cooldown of all abilities currently on cooldown.

Super Charge: Grants 50% super ability meter.

 

Standings: Daily Win Leaderboard 

Introducing the first iteration of Battleverse Champions’ leaderboard system: standings! Accessed from the main menu, you can now show the world your skill and earn Glory by battling opponents and climbing the ranks. Your rank is determined by the number of wins in the casual game mode for that day. You will receive rewards based on your rank when the leaderboard is reset. Compete with your fellow champions and show your dominance!

 

Daily leaderboards will reset at 12:00AM (00) UTC.

Rewards can be claimed the following day

 

Go ahead, don’t be shy, show off your main!

New tutorial

We have updated our tutorial for all new accounts, we hope this new tutorial will provide a much better experience for new players to quickly and seamlessly learn the game mechanics, depth, and complexity available in combat. Existing players will start near the end of the tutorial, teaching you the new power-ups feature, and all accounts will now have Nika’s Rapid Fire ability unlocked. Enjoy!

 

Skill-based Matchmaking

We have put the first iteration of skill-based matchmaking into Battleverse Champions. Simply, if you are consistently winning, you will fight harder opponents, and if you are consistently losing, you will fight some easier opponents. We we will be monitoring this and plan on doing significantly more work on this in the future. Send that feedback our way!
