What's on the Horizon in Fall 2020
With the Global Launch upon us, the development team has been hard at work on what's coming next. While we'll be sharing more details as time goes by, we wanted to preview a few of the key things players will be able to look forward to in the near future. Let's get to it!
We love connecting with our players via our Discord server, because they give us amazing, insightful feedback that we not only greatly appreciate, but that is a vital part of the planning and developmental processes. With that in mind, one of the hottest topics these past few weeks and months has been matchmaking and how some players have grown frustrated with the quality of their match-ups.
We've listened and we're happy to say that changes are on the way! Coming in our next major update, will be the introduction of a new matchmaking process that is ultimately more dynamic, taking more real-time factors into consideration than the current system does. We believe that these changes, along with the continual increase in the pool of players, will produce much more favorable results, providing match-ups that are much more appropriate.
Along with matchmaking, we knew one concrete way to improve the player experience was to modify how bot matches worked. While the matchmaking changes will lead to better match-ups, there will still be times when another player simply isn't available and your best option for some War Alliance action will be taking on one of our intelligent bots.
With the new system, players will have to opt-into those matches, instead of being paired automatically, and those matches will result in decreased medal rewards and increased gold rewards. Players will have the power to decide how long they would like to wait to take on another player and the opportunity to "farm" bots will be mitigated.
Hungry for more new content? On the heels of the recent addition of the new Bazaar arena in the last major update, we're going to keep that momentum going and continue to add new content in each of the upcoming major updates. With that said, what can players expect?
If you’re a fan of our colorful cast of characters and locales, then get ready because we’re looking to expand the fun and creative options at your disposal with the introduction of new cosmetic customizations.
While we’re simply champing at the bit to share more details, there’s still more work to be done, including the addition of a new inventory system that will be the basis for accessing and selecting your accumulated items. We’ll be talking about that system in the coming weeks.
Not in the mood to take on players in the typical War Alliance PVP, card clash fashion? Well, don't worry! Work is underway on the development of a variety of game modes that will provide new ways to enjoy the fun and excitement of War Alliance, outside of the ladder.
Do you have some suggestions on potential Game Modes? Head on over to our Discord server and share your ideas!
