Hi everyone! My name is Liz, and I am the new Community Manager for Stunlock Studios and Battlerite. Chris mentioned a couple weeks ago in his last entry that there would be some Dev Blog Lites, and that’s why I’m here! I figured this was as good a time as any to introduce myself, as I’ll be interacting with everyone a lot more in the near future. Chris won’t be vanishing completely though, he’ll still be hanging around and responding to questions as more of a liaison directly between the developers and the community. Read more »

And so it ends! Battlerekt has brought the toughest competition in North America and Europe to the Proving Grounds of the Battlerite Arena every single week with rivalries forming, upsets occurring, and dominance shaping up. The last week was no different as the big finale, the grandiose conclusion, was happening.

Good day all and welcome to another dev blog by me, your friendly neighborhood Stunlocker Christian. In this Dev Blog we will speak in short about some of the things Stunlock will be focusing on in the remaining time before the Free-To-Play release. And no, I can’t give you any news on that date quite yet, but we’ll be sure to tell you as soon as we can! This post is a bit shorter than normal as there are still details being worked out that I can’t divulge, but hopefully it will still be at least slightly interesting. Read more »

 

See you in the Arena!

Free Weekend is back! The doors of the Arena will be open to all July 13-16, and we’re looking forward to seeing you there!

In preparation for the Free to Play launch of the game, this Free Weekend will feature the Champion rotation as seen in Battlerite Lite, and if you like what you see, you’re in luck! Battlerite Early Access will also be 33% off for this event, so grab it for cheap while you can and play as ALL the Champions, now and forever!

Extraordinary gameplay has been a staple for this Battlerekt tournament. Week after week they slug it out, week after week the show on NGE delivers. This time the excitement came partially from the teams, but also from the new balance patch – how would it impact the competition and would it topple some of the established teams and their hero composition?

Good day all! Christian here and after a short break from Dev Bloggin’, I’m back to once again share another post with you. This week we’ll talk a bit about how the Summer Mega Patch panned out, answer some questions you might have about it, and the possibilities that have opened up now that the patch is live.

As the Battlerekt tournament series nears the finish lines, the power rankings in both regions are solidifying more and more. In Europe new contenders are popping up constantly, but Intolerant stays a constant at the top of the leaderboard. A team to give Legendary a real run for their money in North America has still not been found, despite valiant efforts by everyone.

With the new patch coming we want to give some heads up regarding replays. Due to version differences replays made from before the Summer Mega Patch will continue to work but may affect your performance in a negative way while viewing them. In short, old replays won’t be broken, but can result in lower frame rates while being viewed. This will most likely be more noticeable on low-end computers.
