You certainly heard about our plans to update the battle maps created through the Lobby. Good news! Updated maps will appear in the game tomorrow, after the server restart at 02:00 UTC December 1st.
Battles on the updated maps will allow for up to 20 players (10×10 for team modes). At the moment we think this number of players is optimal for regular battles. After the release we will monitor the situation and, possibly, change the player limit if necessary.
To make the new versions of the maps better for playing in 10×10 format, we made some changes to the landscape on some of them.
Updated maps will appear only in battles made through the Lobby by pressing “Play!” on the mode you choose. You won’t see the new maps in PRO-battles yet; we don’t want to overload the list with 24 additional maps most of which, probably, will be left unplayed. Instead, we encourage you to try out the new maps in regular battles and share your feedback with us, what you liked and what you didn’t like in the updated versions. After we analyze what maps are the most popular, we will include them in the PRO-battles.
This way, in PRO-battles you will see the previous versions of the maps with the previous setting, and, of course, all of the maps that were not changed by the update, and in the regular battles you will see only the new maps from the list below.
The list of 24 updated maps:
In the last 6 months the rewards for completing daily mission chains were 3 times bigger than usual. If you completed at least 1 mission every day during this period, after a full week of completing missions you would get X3 rewards!
At first, we made this increase for summer only, and then extended the event until the end of autumn, and are now happy to share that X3 rewards will remain in the game until the end of the year! What will happen to them after the end of the year we will share later.
NOTE: increased rewards DO NOT affect the rewards for the missions themselves.
Jump into the game after the restart, check out the new maps and tell us what you think on the Forum!
