Hey party people! This week the date is being announced for our next patch, along with the status of ranked season resets.Ranked Reset Reminder
The reset will happen today as previously mentioned in last week’s update. The top 100 leaderboard will be frozen at 11:59pm IWT. Most of the prizes will be automated, but Infinity-border cards will be manually sent out by me. I will contact everyone in the top 25 to confirm what their IB picks are.
Yodo/LM are considering an in-game method for choosing IB cards, but in the meantime IB picks will have to be manual. We wish to keep testing the one-month reset duration for another 1-3 months before considering other season durations (such as 3-month, by expansion, etc). We have noticed the pros and cons offered by various community members, and will revisit this topic after we have tested the 1-month reset format a bit more.Patch Day Coming!
The next patch is expected to launch on October 11th, 2016. The patch will include the return of Daily Missions, as well as Rebellion Wave 3. Preliminary patch notes will be released as soon as they are available. Additional bug fixes are also expected, but there is a chance they may come earlier via a hotfix. A few notes about patch contents:
- IP values seen for missions on PBE are not final, they were placeholder values. Rewards that include IP will be closer to about 1,000 IP, not 200.
- Rebellion Wave 3 cards on PBE are not necessarily finalized when it comes to stats/abilities. The community balance team is going over the cards. Once Wave 3 is done being looked over, we will advertise that group of cards to the public.
We are in the final stages of designing the DoD faction trial, and working on the script for the next campaign after it as well. Both sets are expected to be of comparable length to the existing faction campaigns, at about five missions. Starter decks will also be included as rewards for completing those campaign trials.
More news next week!
