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.
Hey everyone! Shelt (from way back in Dev Blog #2) here to once again to talk a bit about the previous season and about some of the updates for Season 4.

We are introducing a lot of new stuff with the Summer Mega Patch on June 27th so some systems will change to accommodate.
First, with the Summer Mega Patch Silver Chests will be purchasable for 400 Battle Coins. Leveling your account will also award Silver Chests. Gold Chests will however no longer be obtainable via Battle Coins. Instead players will get them via Gems, Quests and leveling Champions.
Second there’s also changes coming to how players earn Battle Coins. Players will no longer earn 50 Battle Coins by winning 3 matches. Instead they will earn Battle Coins after every match regardless of if it’s a win or a loss. This income uses a static value where a few factors also grant extra Coins. Despite this the Battle Coin income rate through matches stays about the same. The total Battle Coin income will be higher than before though due to the new Quest system.
If you have extra Battle Coins lying around, make sure to buy Gold Chests with them while you still can!

Hey all, Christian here with some more information about the upcoming patch I talked a bit about last week. If you missed it in last week’s dev blog, I talked in short about changes that will come with the next major patch and which are meant to prepare Battlerite for Free-To-Play (and complement Battlerite Lite). The three things I brought up was an updated Quest System, the introduction of Account Levels, and the new currency currently called “Gems”. In this week’s post we’ll check in again on the new player experience, as it’s also slated to arrive in the same patch, and take a closer look at what the new Quest System entails.
I just want to touch on a few things before we get going though. Read more »

Marking the halfway point of the Battlerekt: Proving Grounds festivities, Week 5 was highly anticipated due to the top notch gameplay Week 4 produced.
