ShadowArena 2020-01-02 10:00 (UTC+9)

 

Hello! This is GM Haru.

 

We are so happy to meet all the testers participating to fight it out in the 2nd CBT.

There were a number of new updates added since the 1st CBT which includes new systems, improvements, bug fixes, and more. So, let’s go over what’s new in the 2nd CBT!

 


 

■ New Characters

New characters were added! Orwen is an archer with a full arsenal of ranged skills, and Goyen is a legendary mercenary with powerful melee attacks.

 

Orwen’s skill kit consists of long-ranged attacks using the bow.

She is at a major disadvantage in melee combat therefore it is crucial for her to keep a distance and create a blindspot to lead the fight in her favor.

■ Ranking System

The Ranking and Tier systems were added. The overall ranking system is decided on the basis of the in-game records/score.

 

Ranking

Ranking score will be largely determined by two types of score, with each score aggregated by the sum of the below records:

 

① Ranking Point

② Kill Point
③ Survival Point (Based on time survived)

④ Item Point

[Highest Score of the Season]

 

The “highest score” obtained in a game throughout the whole season.

[Average Score of the Season]

 

The average score of all the games you played throughout the whole season.

Please note “Highest Score of the Season” of the two records has the greatest impact on ranking.

Therefore, it is recommended that you try to obtain as many points as you can in a game that you gain the upper hand of.

 

■ Mastery System

In the 2nd closed beta test, each character you play will be tagged with Mastery Level.

Mastery EXP can be obtained based on your ranking in each of the games you play, and Mastery Level can be increased to a maximum of 10 levels with Mastery EXP.

Mastery EXP Gain = 30 - My Ranking + Random point 1 to 20 (When the total is below 0, you will gain 0.)

 

※ Which means you can gain the fixed point(s) for your Master EXP along with random EXP point(s) when the ranking you achieved in a game is 30th or higher.

※ Mastery is a system that aims to evaluate and reward your play afterwards based on how well you understand and play the character effectively.
Please note there is no performance difference based on your Mastery EXP/Level.

 

■ Red Dragon’s Invasion

There is a slight chance where you can obtain the “Red Dragon Offering” item when you defeat monsters.
When using this item, a Red Dragon flies to where you summoned it quickly from a distance, use a powerful “Red Dragon’s Breath” toward the location where the offering was made, and burn the area with flames.
Note that there is a minute chance of survival for most of the players when hit by “Red Dragon’s Breath”, and thus it will be crucial that you make a strategic decision on how to avoid it and turn the situation to your advantage when the Red Dragon appears.

 

■ Practice Match
Users can play any character and experiment with skill combos in this practice mode.
The practice mode is a good way to learn the skills of each different characters. You can anticipate attacks and use skills more efficiently with that knowledge.

 

■ Custom Setting

In this mode, users can create a private room with custom settings for the match.
Users that know the password can freely join the private room.
