Hello, this is the Shadow Arena Development Team.
With the new season, we would like to introduce a few updates scheduled to come.
For Beta Season 7, we plan to focus on improving and reestablishing areas of the game that have been in development, as well as tracking and fixing bugs. Through enhancing the Tutorial and UI by thoroughly examining existing content, we will do our best to improve the game quality in providing enjoyable gameplay for our players.
📝 Track and Fix Bugs
Due to the development of new content each week and fixing major bugs, the fixes to preexisting minor and major bugs were delayed. In this season, we will improve the overall quality of the game by spending more time addressing these bugs.
As noted in our update notice and developer notes, the streaming and replay feature is currently in development. In streaming mode, you'll be able to watch a game in progress, and in replay mode, you'll be able to watch your previous games. Both features are nearly complete, which we are very pleased with.
The tournament system and spectator mode will be built around the streaming function, and we expect that this feature will make community tournaments more enjoyable for players.
The replay feature allows you to watch previous gaming, which can be utilized to analyze your gameplay patterns, and situations in greater depth, and even record epic moments.
The features will be available to Partner Influencers first and we will work towards making it available to more players in the future.
📝 Hero Reboot
The ultimate goal is to make each Hero enjoyable to play.
We plan to proceed with the hero reboot which will enhance control of heroes, improve the flow and detail of motion, increase the hit impact, and boost the ability of each skill to combo with other skills, as well as its synergy with related skills. In this process, we plan to adjust the balance of Mastery Skills and if considered to be necessary, nerfing of skills may be considered, but we aim to make improvements for the most part.
With this said, we want to inform you in advance of the placement of unwieldy skills or any drastic changes that may be applied in consideration of the Hero’s mechanism. We hope to improve each Hero as much as possible to enhance the gameplay for players. We are proceeding with the Heroes that require the most attention in these aspects. At this time, we are planning to start with Durgeff Durkhan and Herawen first.
All AI Bots for each Hero will be added at a later date.
We're actively working on adding AI bots for each of the 21 Heroes available in Shadow Arena, as well as continuing to improve the artificial intelligence of bots.
AI bots will be improved to help new players adjust to the game, and they will be reduced as the number of players grow and eventually remove all AI bots at a suitable time.
Although there are many more elements such as improvements to the Arena, Death Match, and fixes to the 3D character selection screen that are scheduled to come, we will inform you of any content that we did not cover in this developer note according to the development direction and schedule.
With the start of Beta Season 7, we have prepared various events, as well as the Challenge Cup registration that will start next week. We hope you look forward to the events.
