    • -Numerous bug fixes.




    Heroes Arena Version 0.2.14 - 08/11/2017


    Heroes:
    • -Manipulator Redesign. In our initial design, we expected Manipulator to deal massive damage with releasing abilities and Basic Attacks in turns. But in light of feedbacks from our players, this design doesn’t accord with her positioning as a Mage. Thus we decide to make some adjustments on Manipulator’s abilities as detailed below:


    For Passive ability. Adds sigil on target hit. When the layer amount of sigil reaches 4, consumes all layers and deals true damage and deceleration effect. Restores Health to a certain extent.
    For 2nd y: Manipulator fires three arcane bolts to attack nearby enemies (Hero first), each dealing magic damage to a certain extent.
    For 3rd ability 3: Manipulator fires a shadow bomb, dealing magic damage and immobilizing the first target hit for 1.5 secs.
    For 4th ability: Manipulator dashes forward and casts shadow orbs to nearby enemies (Hero First) (3 at most), dealing Magic Damage. Manipulator can dash for up to 3 times during the period of shadow strike.
    • -Added Casting animation to Warrior of Light in 3rd ability. It can’t be released in other abilities.
    • -Optimized the screen vibration effect of some heroes.



    Balance:
    • -Optimized the Atk Speed growth. Differentiated Atk Speed of Heroes with different positioning.
    • -Reduced Mana consumptions of some Heroes.
    • -Increased Damage of Marksmen and Minions. Increased Health of Super Minions. Reduced Monsters’ Health in the later period.
    • -Weakened Troll Champion. For passive ability: Grants strengthened Basic Attacks in 6 secs after out-of-combat. For 1st ability: Reduced attack range and removed Armor Breaker effect by 30%. For 2nd ability: Reduced the duration from 2.5 secs to 2 secs. For 4th ability: Killing heroes reduces CD by 80%.

    • -Increased the initial defense value of Hare to the Throne and increased 2nd ability’s damage growth.
    • -Reduced the damage of Lycan Death Mage in 2nd ability.
    • -Reduced CD of Siren of the Seas in 2nd ability.
    • -Reduced damage of Truth's Light in 1st ability.
    • -Reduced damage of Namida Assassin in 3rd ability.



    Features:
    • -Due to the upcoming update on the Leader’s Ability and Rune system, we remove Chests features both in Battle and Store in this version. In the meantime, we will launch daily events to release free Runes, Leader abilities and Gold.
    • -Here we got a Brand New Fast Mode! In a Fierce Battle, there will be no jungles, turrets left will show in 3 minutes and kills will show in 5 minutes. The longest reviving time is 15 secs. Come and have some fun!
    • -Newly added co-op vs. AI mode. Tired of PVP? Come and challenge our AI!
    • -Optimized the mechanism of Matched Play and Battle Royale.
    • -Added real-time chat feature on the heroes selection interface.
    • -Added Advanced Tutorial and Practice Tutorial in Training Field. You can have a shot there to try your level!
    • -Changed 5v5-PVP mode back to 3v3-PVP.





    Heroes Arena Version 0.2 - 07/21/2017

    Heroes:
    • - Shadow Queen Redesign. Finally it is time for Shadow Queen unleashing her power. Upon reflections on our original design intention, we made modifications on her passive ability and ability 3, with a hope that the new Shadow Queen version can be stronger and cooler, hunting for any enemy who is alone. For passive ability, each hit on an enemy increases Ability Power by 8% for 5 secs, stacking up to 10 times with duration refreshable. For ability 3, Shadow Queen throws chains towards the intended direction, locking the first enemy hit. Chains are triggered every 0.3 sec to deal magic damage, lasting 3 secs. Chains will be broken when exceeding a certain distance. Enemies still locked after chains broken will be dealt magic damage and stunned.




    Heroes Arena Version 0.2 - 07/13/2017

    Heroes:
    Prolocutor Re-design. For passive ability, basic attacks increase Attack Damage and Crit-Rate after hitting targets, stacking up to 5 times. For ability 1, Prolocutor throws his weapon to the intended direction, dealing physical damage and marking enemy units. The weapon returns to Prolocutor's casting location, dealing physical damage to enemies along the path and additional damage to marked enemy units. For ability 2, instead of waiting for the end of duration, it’s triggered immediately after it stacks up to 5 times. For ultimate ability, it reveals enemy heroes ‘locations and casts Gravity Wave to them in a delay of 1.5 secs, dealing physical damage, silencing and slowing them down.

    New Features:
    • Test on Skin Feature. We only released the Warrior’s Skin of Truth's Light in our first version. More Skin options are now on test. Stay tuned!
    • To differentiate the title of Heroes’ skins, a Hero’s title and name will both be displayed on the Hero Display page.
    • On July 15th, Season 3 will end while Season 4 begins in the meantime. All players of Gold or above in Season 3 will be awarded limited amount of Warrior’s Skin for Truth's Light!
    • Destroying Turrets button: You can turn it on with Last Hit on. With Destroying Turrets, target priority is given to Turrets in basic attacks.
    • Popular Setup in Equipment Page: Feel free to check Godlike Asset!
    • Teleport displayed on the mini map: For the convenience of your team members to check your teleporting.
    • Only Ranked Play shows in Ranking & Godlike.
    • Multiple optimizations in World Chat & Friend Chat.
    • Optimizations in rule display of Heroes’ abilities.



    Bug Fixes:
    • Fixed a bug that the Elements Lord BUFF still existed after the hero was killed.
    • Fixed a bug that the Equipment recommendations repeated.
    • Fixed a bug that the unique ability effect did not work when purchased during a hero’s revival time.
    • Fixed a bug that the Outcast Chieftain’s second part of reinforced ability 2 could cause a calculation error in CD if not cast.




    Heroes Arena Version 0.1.8 - 07/07/2017

    Heroes:
    • - The Hornblower Re-design: Passive Ability has been changed to the third time Basic Attack bringing additional physical damage equal to 4% of The Hornblower’s Max Health (doesn’t work for Turrets). Ability 3 has been changed to slowing down enemy heroes nearby and bringing a shield to resist incoming damage (up to 1,500 damage) according to the amount of enemy hits. Meanwhile the slowing down effect of ability 2 has been disabled from using. In our initial design, The Hornblower was expected to be a robust warrior marching in the battlefield with great capacity in damage and healing. But unfortunately he didn’t make it in team battle with the original passive ability and ability 3. Therefore, we added survival ability to help The Hornblower get back to the battlefield.
    • - Troll Champion Nerf. Great mechanism of Troll Champion made her very popular among players, but we also found her unduly survival & damage dealing capacity. We made the following changes to her: For ability 1, damage after each hit decreases by 20% instead of 10%. For ability 3, CD has been prolonged to 16 secs. For ultimate ability, the bullets on the fly could be blocked by the enemy heroes.





    Heroes Arena Version 0.1.8 - 06/30/2017

    Heroes:
    • -The Mountain King Re-design: Passive Ability has been changed to one layer of Buff with physical attack increased by 3% for 5 secs if his abilities or basic attacks hit a target, stacking up to 5 times. Ultimate ability has been changed to deal physical damage to enemy units nearby one time once launched and increase Movement Speed by 50%. In our initial design, Mountain King was an intrepid warrior fighting with nothing to fear. However, he failed to meet our expectation due to the strict requirement in ability design. So we added Movement Speed boost to his ultimate ability as well as the effect of more damage with more attacks. We hope the Mountain King will be again on the top of warriors.
    • -Outcast Chieftain: Fixed a freezing issue while dashing with the enhanced ability of Crush Down.
    • -Golden Lion: The Golden Lion will temporarily be disabled from using in the game until he meets our quality requirement. Well the good news is, we will introduce more heroes in July. Stay tuned!



    Improvement:
    • -Improved the out-of-sync issue in the game match.





    Heroes Arena Version 0.1.71 - 06/24/2017

    Heroes:
    • Outcast Chieftain Re-design:
    • a. Reduced the Anger cost of the 1st and 2nd abilities from 1,000 to 500, now players can use the two reinforced abilities at the same time.
    • b. Re-designed the 3rd ability to fix the problem that players could forget to pause the health loss buff. The ability now sacrifices 15% of current Health to enhance basic attack and brings a 3 sec lifesteal effect.
    • c. The 1st ability can now interrupt the charging of the 2nd ability, so that the hero can release the 1st ability while charging.
    • Troll Champion: Damage of the 1st ability decreases by 10% (up to 40%) with each enemy hit by it. For the 3rd ability, instead of jumping back to previous location, the hero now jumps reversely; stunning effect slightly decreased.

    • Lucent: The second and third arrows of Lucent’s first ability will no longer bring special effect.

    • Lil' Witch: Her third ability had too powerful immune effects for the crowd. We changed its CD to 15 seconds from 12 seconds.

    Suggestion or BUG: Ranked Match AFK or Leaver penalty/punishment
    Device Model (for BUG): Meizu M2

    I suggest a strict punishment for the players who consistently leave or go AFK during Ranked matches, take a swift action. You know that some people can’t avoid it, carefully monitor the process to avoid punishing players who may have one-off occurrences or connection issues.

    This is the breakdown of the punishments that I suggest:

    1st Offense: Warning
    2nd Offense: 1-Day Ban or 3-Day Ban from playing Ranked match (Depending on Severity/Frequency)
    3rd Offense: 7-Day Ban or Permanent from playing Ranked match (Depending on Severity/Frequency)
    I'm okay with the credit deduction punishment, I think it is more suitable to what I suggested.

    To Betty: you added that players can obtain gems while performing daily tasks. The option is still unavailable on my game. It's also dated for 1-15-17. I think your a day ahead of me. If this is the case, when can we expect this to roll out?

    Its nice to see the gane patch notes one day before, but I woukd really love to see what are the exact numbers in the stat changes for the heroes, for example it says "Slightly reduced Lil' Witch's ULT ability damage." but from how much to hiw much. I would like to know those numbers and the scaling, that is a very important thing in a serious esports game.

    This game has got my life and soul at the moment. I personally think it's better than MOBA legends bang bang. I'm super excited to see what comes of this game.

    This game is better than Mobile Legend (very popular moba) but under than VainGlory (very balanced moba).
    Maybe developers can copy their strenght to make this game the best moba in Android and IOS.

    Suggestion:
    1. make ads in YouTube, facebook, or post free in Facebook game group to attract more players. So this game can be popular like mobile legend.
    2. Delete rune and unlock all abilities from very start. So this game can be a real balanced moba like vainglory.
    3. To make this game addictive, you can copy some vainglory features:
    Collect card to get hero skin,
    Optimized guild system,
    Make real e-sport tournaments so later when gamers open this game, there is a e-sport tournament cutscene video which give he hope to always play, so he can be pro to get in tournament too in future.
