V31.1 RELEASE NOTES

Bloodlines

A Dark ritual revives an ancient weapon within The Battlerealm.

A mysterious note has found its way to the Summoner drawing them towards the Forbidden Territories alongside a few uncertain friends. It seems an ancient ritual has brought about La Fleur du Mal as well as its wielders. 

Will you put aside differences and forget the past to work together in the present?

Alternate Reality versions of familiar Champions enter the Contest!

Freed from the confines of the iron maiden, Queen Haasen returns! Purgatory is a twisted, demonic creature, from an alternate timeline where Morningstar was finally able to defeat Guillotine and steal her sword back. With the blade back in her hands, the demonic presence within it overwhelmed Queen Haasen and convinced her to slay Guillotine. Doing so corrupted both her body and soul, transforming her into Purgatory and sending her on a bloodthirsty rampage unlike any seen in a millennium.

A younger version of Maestro from an alternate reality that is equal in every way, except he still maintains his sanity. The Overseer has just started his conquering career and while he isn’t villainous, he’s not quite noble either. He uses Captain America’s shield for defense, and the Silver Surfer board as a giant cleaver, but his most powerful weapon is a copy of the Infinity Gauntlet that holds the Cosmic Cube, which he uses to travel across The Battlerealm looking for conquest.

Langurian Castle Rifts

An alternate universe Queen Haasen has come to reclaim her throne, so now YOU must venture into her Castle in Languria and fight the tortured souls of her victims and her nefarious allies. Explore different floors of the castle each week delving deeper and deeper into the castle’s twisting passages.

Each week, a new floor of Queen’s Haasen’s castle will be available for Summoners to explore in the form of a new Quest. Each quest can be run 7 times per difficulty and will give players a Randomized Path with a reward.

Want something specific? Complete special Solo Objectives to receive a Castle Skeleton Key. Castle Skeleton Keys unlock a special portal that allows you to decide which Path and Reward you’d like to take. But use them wisely! You can only obtain 4 Castle Skeleton keys!

The Grandmaster’s Gauntlet

For those Summoners that have climbed every mountain, and have no more peaks to conquer, the Grandmaster has a challenge for you!

The Grandmaster’s Gauntlet is a brand new Quest with 20 fights you must face one after the other before facing down the threatening Nameless boss that resides at the end!

These fights are meant to test even the strongest of Summoners, with plenty of Rank 3 6-Stars at their disposal. A diverse team capable of handling a wide variety of challenges and enemy abilities will serve you well if you wish to master the Gauntlet. The Grandmaster eagerly awaits your attempts.

The Grandmaster’s Gauntlet is a limited-time quest that will be available until June 23rd! If you’re not able to complete it yet, the Grandmaster will return to issue his Challenge again in the future, and your progress will be kept. This means he will not allow those that have already completed it to try again!

The Summer of Pain Begins!

Starting later this June, a new single-fight quest will be available every week for 9 weeks! These ultra fights will put you and your team to the test.

Each fight will only be available for 1 week, and completing a fight earns you points towards some very rare and powerful rewards!

We’ll start you out easy. The First 3 fights will be a warm up before additional challenges are added to the following weeks.

Then, prepare for a special Finale! The final fight will mix it up a little bit to keep you all on your toes!

Alliance War Attack Tactics

Alliance War Attack and Defense Tactics are being separated. Alliance Leadership per Battlegroup will still choose Defense Tactics, but individual players can now select Buffs for the Attack Phase when selecting their Attack Team. Attack Tactics will be available in Hard, Challenger and Expert maps, while Defense Tactics will remain in Challenger and Expert.

Alliance Quest Enlistment Flow and UI Rework

Enlisting in Alliance Quests has never been more convenient! With this update we are adding a 24 hours setup period that will allow Alliance leadership to configure all 5 days of the event with the maps and modifiers they choose. This dedicated setup period allows Officers to coordinate and strategize with their Alliances before the actual Alliance Quest starts. We are also introducing some UI improvements to better showcase rewards.

Store UI Improvements

  • Class Catalyst and Class Catalyst Fragment Selectors now display the amount of Fragments/Catalysts you own.
  • Store items now indicate the amount of related currency you own.
