Η Stunlock Studios, δημιουργός του φιλόδοξου Isometric Action MOBA, ενημέρωσε όλους τους φίλους του παιχνιδιού για όλες τις επερχόμενες αλλαγές μέσω ενός νέου Newsletter. Σύμφωνα με την ομάδα ανάπτυξης, η νέα season με τίτλο «Demon’s Tale» σημαίνει και μια ‘New Era’ (Νέα Εποχή) για τον τίτλο αφού το νέο update φέρνει όλες εκείνες τις αλλαγές και τις προσθήκες που μας φέρνουν πιο κοντά στην Free-to-play κυκλοφορία.

Μαζί με τις πληροφορίες αυτές, η Stunlock δημοσίευσε και ένα Roadmap με όλα τα μελλοντικά σχέδια για την ανάπτυξη του Battlerite. To «New Era» Roadmap δίνεται σε μορφή ιστοσελίδας και οι ενδιαφερόμενοι μπορούν να την επισκεφτούν εδώ.

Πέρα από την «New Era», η εταιρεία έδωσε στην δημοσιότητα και την λίστα με τις αλλαγές της Season 5 στο νέο Patch 0.13.2.0:

Start of Season 5 – Demon’s Tale

Season 5 will be the final Early Access Season.

  • Major changes to the Ranking System
    • Higher leagues will be harder to obtain
      • Most players will end up in a lower League than before due to the changes
    • Contender League has been removed
    • Divisions per League have been reduced from 8 to 5
    • Placement games have been added to quicker place you close to your skill level.
    • Win Streak Bonus has been removed
    • Rating Decay System Added
      • Players and Teams in Diamond League or above will receive a rating penalty if they have been inactive for over 7 days. Playing at least one match per week will avoid this penalty
      • Note that there are no notifications or warnings for players/teams risking rating decay (this might be added later)
    • Rating Reset
      • Due to these changes we will reset everyone’s rating, note that this will be the last reset before the official free-to-play launch.
    • Players will be less likely to encounter the same opponents two times in a row.
    • Players will less likely be matched two times in a row with other players that have yet not completed their placement games (when you have completed your own placement games)
  • Third-Party Region Ladder Support
    • Match Data now include region, allowing third-party sites to filter players/teams into different region ladders if they like.
      • The following regions are tagged; EU, NA, South America, SEA, East Asia and OCE.
  • Fixed a bug when selecting multiple matchmaking regions, where players were unable to find games in certain matchmaking regions even though they had them checked.

Free Rotation System

  • Weekly Free Champion Rotation is now active for Battlerite Lite and Free Players

    • The rotation consists of 6 Champions that rotate every Friday at 10:00 UTC
    • To ensure a healthy distribution of champions, the rotation may differ between players
  • Jade is now owned by all players
