Hey everyone, Liz here for quick snippet.

Everyone is rather busy with the big day coming up and we’re all excited for the new players who will be joining us then.

Coming out of Early Access is going to bring changes, and one of those we’ve talked about internally is the future of the Dev Blog. As it stands, we will continue with a different form of the Dev Blog after launch, with the exact details still being worked out. We do know that this form will not be weekly but rather once or twice monthly with no set schedule.

That being said, Ilves has information on changes coming to Battlerite once we get to November 8th – updates to DLC, new bundles, changes to pricing and details on some shiny new cosmetics.

Battlerite Pre-Season Coming Soon!

The Free to Play launch is right around the corner and with it begins a new season for Battlerite. We’ve decided to call this the “Pre-Season,” as we expect many new players to enter the Arena and it will take time for them to learn the game and for the matchmaking system to properly detect their correct skill rating.

Patch 0.14.0.2 will be going live later today (Thursday, October 26th). Approximate downtime will be 1 hour, follow us on social media for updates.

Upcoming Changes

We’ve heard your feedback on Patch 0.14.0. We knew this was going to be a risky patch with several updates coming at once and at the same time we saw this as a last opportunity to try out some big changes in Early Access.

As we communicated in an earlier devblog on queues and games modes, we would be keeping a close eye on the reaction to the removal of Casual and be quick to act. We have decided to reintroduce the Casual Arena queue without further delay. Read more »

The following hotfixes have been rolled out for Patch 0.14.0.0.

  • Fixed an issue causing players to disconnect from games. We will be monitoring this and rolling out additional fixes as needed.
  • Fixed an issue where victories in Battlegrounds counted as a loss.
  • Fixed an issue where chests did not properly display received items.

Hello all!

I’m afraid I have the not-so-exciting news of letting you know that we do not have a prepared dev blog today. Last week, everyone in the team was hands on deck bug fixing and testing that we never got chance to prepare a proper dev blog as usual. You have our sincerest apologies!

As regards to when the patch will go live, our goal right now is to get this to you tomorrow (Tuesday 24th October). The only reason this would change is if unexpected bugs were to occur from us fixing other bugs (such is the way of game development /sweatdrop). In that case we may have to delay another day or two, but we will keep in touch with how things are going.

It’s been a busy year of Early Access, and as we’re approaching Free to Play, we’re looking for ways to thank you, our Battlerite community, for all of your input, your passion, and your dedication to this game. And what better way than to let you show us what you want?

Create a brand new outfit for Jade and if it’s our favorite, we’ll craft it – and make it free for everyone. Besides having their design placed in the game, the winner will receive a Legendary Loot Pack, five Creepy Chests, and the title of Art Warrior. Three runners-up will receive three Creepy Chests each and the title of Art Warrior.

Make sure to share your concepts with us on TwitterSteam, and reddit – we want to know what everyone thinks of your idea!

You have until 23:59 CEST on October 27th to send your work to contest@battlerite.com – include your in-game name and make sure to name your outfit! Winners will be announced the following week. Read more »

After listening to feedback and discussing internally, we’re announcing changes to the Halloween Event that will be going live shortly.

In addition to including a weekly quest to earn Creepy Chests, Halloween items will now be directly purchasable with tokens, and can be bought in the customization section like any other cosmetic for as long as the event is running. However, they will be priced at double the cost of regular items.

Players who spent gems on Creepy Chests since the beginning of the event will also receive a 50% gem refund to compensate for Halloween items now being purchasable with tokens. You will retain all items that you have already opened from the chests.

Besides to these changes we are looking at the way we organize and run events, including (but not limited to) additional ways of using in-game currency to obtain cosmetics in future events.

The quest to obtain Creepy Chests will refresh every Friday at 5:00 AM UTC.

Servers will be going down at 14:45 CEST as we implement these changes, and should be down for only a short time. If we hit any sort of snag, we’ll let you know on social media.

Thank you again for your feedback, and we hope this update will allow you to better enjoy events now and in the future.
