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?

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.

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!

Battlerekt Week 7 was ahead us with plenty of buzz and intrigue. Last week, after three weeks on top, Intolerant was pushed off of their European throne and replaced by Functional Sociopaths. Meanwhile, North America saw rosters change but the dominance of Onslaught remained. How would it all resolve? Could Intolerant battle back? Is Onslaught getting new challengers?
