New Update, coming Nov 19, 2018. (Battle Pass + Friendly PvP)

Postby cgascons » Mon Nov 19, 2018 9:11 am

Dear players,

We have been lately working on a couple of new features that we are sure you will like:

- Battle Pass: You are right, this is exactly what you are thinking it is. We have developed a new series of Challenges, which you will be able to do every month. These are the details of this feature:
- 50 Challenges / month will be available
- These challenges will slightly vary every month in terms of objectives and rewards.
- There are plenty of newly designed objectives and lots of rewards to receive.
- Some of the Challenges will be timed, i.e. their progress will reset every 24 hours or 7 days (it will be specified in the Challenge information).
- You will have access to check out the objectives and rewards from the Map Screen only.
- We have introduced "Chained challenges", these challenges will grant a special reward when completing the last challenge of the chain.
- There are two types of Battle Passes, the Basic: which all players will have access to at no cost, and the Golden: which any player can upgrade to, by purchasing the Golden Battle Pass.
- The Golden Battle pass will grant, besides the Basic Plan rewards, Golden rewards.
- The upgrade can be purchased once per month, once a player acquires the Golden Battle Pass, all the Golden Rewards that couldn't be claimed before upgrading will be added into the player's Lootbox, and every completed challenge for the rest of the month will grant both the Basic and Golden Rewards.
- At the start of each month (day 1 of each Month), the Golden Battle Pass will be reverted back to the Basic Plan.
- The value of the total amount of rewards received when having a Golden Battle Pass is worth approximately 5 times the price of the Battle Pass cost itself.
- Friendly PvP: We dusted off and revamped a very old feature of ours which has been requested by you guys for quite some time now.
- You will now be able to do Friendly matches against any player in the game.
- These friendly matches will not grant gold nor rating points, and also they will not be taken into account for Quests and Challenges progress.
- Any PvP-eligible player* will be able to send and receive Friendly PvP match requests via two possible ways: Clicking on a Chat message of a player and clicking "PvP" on the sub-screen shown or clicking on a Platoon Member slot (not necessarily your own Platoon, you can browse Platoons and watch their members) and also clicking "PvP" on the sub-screen shown.

*What is a PvP-eligible player? A player that meet the conditions to play Regular PvP (enough Level, a valid deck set up, updated client version, etc...), in addition the player that receives the Request MUST meet the following conditions:
- The player has to be in the PvP or Map Screens (players will not be reachable for PvP while in different Screens)
- Can't be on PvP queue
- Can't receive a request from a Chat-Muted player
- (Especially for mobile players) Can't have the app minimized on their device.

If any of the all these requirements isn't met, the request will be automatically declined and the sender of the request will be notified to try again later.

Please bear in mind that these are two (quite big!) features launched at the same time and even though we have thoroughly tested them it's possible to find some issues, in case of finding one we kindly ask you for your reports and (especially!) your patience.

The update along with both these new features has just been released in all platforms (iOS, Android, Facebook & Kongregate), the Battle Pass Season though, won't start until December 1, 2018.
We hope you enjoy this upcoming update and can't wait to hear your thoughts about it! On a side note we will be having some quite nice offers during this week, don't miss them!

Thanks!

Battle Pass is working perfectly it seems. I also tested the inviting to Friendly PvP and that worked too.

The only thing is... how does one buy the Golden Battle Pass? If you click that box in Battle Pass: Rewards it says:

"This product couldn't be verified on the store, please try again later"

But I didn't see any place in the Store to buy a Battle Pass... not that I plan on buying one, but always curious!

Edit: #16 = Win a 30+ Expert Stage with only Solar Empire cards. I did this three times (30 and 40-something) but didn't get the result. It says 2/4 But IDK what the first one was... no green pop-up came to say I did it. I didn't do better than my original scores, that's nearly impossible with Solar Empire because they have few healing cards...

Edit: I used the same deck in PvP and got credit for BP#29.

Edit: I finished #50 (1000 points on Master Raids) but never got any rewards for it? It is gone from the roster (is completed) but there's nothing showing in the 'Rewards' page as having been picked up. I finished it with Solo Master Raid, but only got 950 on Team Raid Master.

There was a problem with #24, #25 and #45 showing only 2 days to accomplish, but that's fixed now it shows 7 days (6 remaining).

Hello,

Challenge 16 should read "hard" instead of "expert", you need to complete the challenge in hard difficulty instead of expert difficulty.

Upgrade Battle Pass -> It should be fixed, it was an issue with the Kongregate build.

Challenge 50 -> It only gives reward with the upgraded version. (if you've already completed the challenge and you purchase the upgraded version you will receive the reward)

Challenge 24, 25 and 45 -> The "weekly" tag works with natural weeks and therefore you only had "2 days" due to the battle pass started on 1st Dec.

Thanks for the info!

I got #16 in Hard like you said, but there was no reward for it (of course, since it was step 2 of a 4-chain) and the box for it is gone now.

Also: #26 has nothing beside it: no info except 3/4 Chain, did it get moved over there? What was #26 before then? :?:

I tired Expert Level 45 with the deck and it didn't give the BP... worth a shot eh?

Hello,

The missing text: Challenge #26: Win a stage (Expert 30+) with only Dark Alliance Units.

We'll fix it really soon.

Oh, my other message got lost? We can see #26 now, hope it works too.

#24, play 250 Mercenary Units? Doesn't seen to work at all. None of the units I played in Missions, Raids, PvP or in the Maps have moved it off 0. I made a mostly Mercenary deck just to try it out. #25 for Mercenary Spells is working though.

Edit: I won a stage 60 Expert with only Dark Alliance cards... even set a new personal high score! Did not get credit for BP#26 stage 3/4

Hello,

We're aware some of the challenges that requires to kill/play some specific "faction card" are not working and we're working on update to fix it.
