Lords and Ladies!
11.12 update has been installed on our game servers and the Heroes are ready to greet their Lords and Ladies!
We congratulate you on the end of the seventh Season: Season of Dragons!
This Season is the last Season that belongs to the old type of Seasons, and the new type of Seasons is already on its way to Praya. We had been thinking hard on how to make Seasonal competitions, Seasonal achievements and rewards even more exciting, and we would like to take a responsible approach to the changes. Therefore, a special time – the Off-season – will be established between the seventh and the eighth Seasons. You can keep participating in the battles in the Borderlands during the Off-season, however, your achievements will not be transferred to the new Season.
In a little while, we will begin to disclose curious details about the changes in the Seasons system, so please, keep a close eye on the news and don’t miss any juicy details!
And now, before moving to the Off-season, we hurry out to give your rewards, well deserved in the battles: Heroes’ frames, flags and Drakaina (Season Skin).
We remind you the rewards that Lord and Ladies receive in the Season of Dragons:
|Wood||Recruit||1100||150 Prime crystals|
|Stone||Corporal||1400||330 Prime crystals, Season flag|
|Bronze||Lieutenant||1600||540 Prime crystals, Season flag, Season frame|
|Captain||1700||Unique skin and a chest with a legendary talent already upgraded from 5 to 7 stars for each Hero, which reached Captain tank, are added to all the previously listed rewards|
|Silver||Major||1800||780 Prime crystals, season flag, season frame, unique skin. A chest with a legendary talent already upgraded from 5 to 7 stars for each Hero|
|Gold||Colonel||2000||1050 Prime crystals , season flag, season frame, unique skin. A chest with a legendary talent already upgraded from 5 to 7 stars & a chest with a legendary talent already upgraded from 5 to 7 stars from the most recently introduced set for each Hero|
|Legendary||Top 10 Heroes on each of the Heroes||From 2000||1050 Prime crystals , season flag, season frame, unique skin. A chest with a legendary talent already upgraded from 5 to 7 stars & a chest with a legendary talent already upgraded from 5 to 7 stars from the most recently introduced set for each Hero|
For those players who, for some reason, are not familiar with the concept of Seasons, we suggest having a look at the main information on them in the special section.
We continue recalculating the leaderboard using a “soft” system, which will keep the players at the top of the leaderboards interested, and, at the same time, prevent the game from getting too hard for those that are still on the path to conquering the heights of the TOP-10.
Seasonal rewards are not the only thing that we would like to treat you with in this version.
Please, welcome – the long-awaited revision of matchmaking! Let’s take it step by step.
|For junglers and laners within 1699 rating or less, the participation in the battles in the Borderlands will become a lot nicer.|
Thus, now the matchmaking system takes the general division of the Heroes into junglers and laners (the indication of the roles is based on your preferences and statistics of use of one or another Hero in the forest or on the lane) into account, besides, we have carefully reconsidered the number of every Hero's efficiency points (learn more about Hero's efficiency points here), so that they comply more accurately with the events that take place on a battlefield. However, if for quite some time the perfect team is not found, the search criteria will be softened.
As a result, players (and their Heroes) matchmaking will become even more comfortable.
Now, let’s continue with icing on the cake!
Of course, it is time to talk about the pre-match window, Captains and Colonels (or even some higher ranks!)
For a long time we were searching for a manner to smoothly bring in alterations in high rank Heroes matchmatching, which, at the same time, would not extend the supposed process of searching for the battle up to unacceptable amount of time. And finally, after a long time of searching, we managed to bring some adjustments into the matchmaking system that will change the current situation.
However, Majors can get matched with Lieutenant colonels and Colonels, but due to the changes in the pre-matching window, you will always know for sure the top rank in the opponent’s team and, therefore, will be able to make an informed choice: to participate in the battle or wait for another matching.
Something really exciting is waiting for brave Lords and Ladies – and, obviously, their Heroes – in their Castles. A new event – Master of Alchemy – is now available in the full-screen interface. In the event, you will be able to attend a couple of Doctrine’s classes, perfectly master the skill of mixing reagents and receive many valuable rewards, including a new collectable subset!
All the details of participation in the action you can find here.
11.12 update brings a new collectable subset to Praya that will allow your Hero to strengthen potions, make his/her teleportation scroll even more mobile and disclose many other wonderful properties!
The Master of Alchemy subset works in accordance with the familiar principle of bonuses, received for learning two or three talents from the subset:
The properties of every talent are also quite unusual and can surprise even the experienced Heroes:
As you know, before Chronicle arrived to Lords and Ladies’ Castles, nobody in Praya had ever fooled around with time. It was inevitable - some minor ‘errors’ were caused by her unique abilities.
The Curse of Time
Time must go on
The way Chronicle’s alternative ultimate functioned raised many questions. Fundamentally different mechanics that affected all Heroes at a time were not easy to master and perceive. Indeed, if everybody has been slowed down, what can be used as a reference to perceive this slowdown?
For All Time
Another new recruit in Praya – Cannoneer – also had a chance to distinguish himself on the battlefield. The action time of his net almost never left his opponents any chance, turning them into easy targets.
Reason to Stop
‘Stable Defense’ set
Since the defense became stable indeed, this set has become popular among players. However, the fact that its true powers were revealed only in the late game – since all four talents were required for its activation – was preventing it from being effective on the early stages of the game.
In 11.12 update the principle of receiving defense from the passive properties of the set has been changed. Now the set reveals its potential earlier, almost from the very beginning of the game:
‘Life Blighter’ subset
From now on, learning 2 talents from the subset will increase the chances of dealing critical damage by 4% (instead of 5%).
‘Heroes' Redeemer’ subset
Touch of Death
Predictor of Inevitable
Brawler / Meijin
Prime World Team
