Early Access Patch 3.0.0.0

New Features

• Ascension is here! Join your fellow heroes on an epic journey to ascend the Arena of Kings, a single instanced Arena reserved for the top two teams in matchmaking. The battle takes place at Heaven’s Ascent, a snow-covered peak sacred to the Old Gods.

 

Gameplay

• Added an intro cinematic when a new game starts.

• Added a countdown timer to the start of new games.

 

Minor Changes And Quality Of Life Improvements

• Magisterium Arena (the indoor one) collision and line of sight has been remastered. The phoenix statue in the top left now has collision.

• Matchmaking has been improved and skill-based matchmaking is implemented (based on several factors to protect new players such as: victories, current win streak, current bounty, time in queue, etc.).

• Matchmaking parties with a high win streak will experience longer queues as they get closer toward the Arena of Kings. Parties with none or smaller win streaks will be matched quicker.

• Added Invite buttons to the play panel so you can easily invite your friends.

• Reduced server message spam.

• Cleaned up some UI elements in the lobby.

• Server stability improved.
