First of all, we want to thank you for being with us! The Witcher Battle Arena has been downloaded more than 1 million times so far — we got massive feedback from you, which will immensely help us in adding new stuff to the game further down the road. Thank you! You rock!
It is our pleasure to inform you that a big content patch called “Friends and Foes” is heading your way! We’ve worked hard on features you asked for — we’ll introduce seasons, a new character, a new map, and a new game mode, and that’s not everything! We are listening carefully to your suggestions — the upcoming patch will introduce a friend system, which will give you the opportunity to form your own group, a ranking system, which will, among other things, grant you the possibility to get some unique weapons and skins by the end of the season, and profile and stats systems.
We will soon post many details on the major enhancements brought by the update so stay tuned!
One of the new features coming your way is the ranking system. We’ve created this system to reward your achievements and to let you compare yourself to other players.
During the Test Season, (we’re still exploring the duration of each season so we can’t tell you how long it will last), as you fight on the arenas, you will receive points that will fill up your ranking bar and earn you levels.
How does the system work?
-You will fight with enemies who are roughly on the same level as you.
-With every single match you win, your ranking bar will fill up.
-When you fill up your ranking bar completely, a new avatar will unlock and, from that point on, you’ll not able to fall down in the ranking. You earn a level, and continue to fill the bar to earn another one. Also, after you fill the ranking bar, you won’t lose your progress. However, while playing ranking matches, you need to be extra careful as losing games will deplete the bar.
After the season ends we will reward the best players with in-game items and more — best player nicknames will be shown in the ranking table, which will contain 25 best players of the season.
You can share your ranking stats with your friends via Facebook and Twitter as well!
We’re also introducing Avatars with this update. Here’s how the avatar panel looks like:
The avatar system is directly connected to climbing in the ranking, so it’s worth to know how it works.
Whilst climbing up in the ranking, you will unlock avatars. Tap on a particular avatar to see what level is required to unlock it.
There are 15 ranks in total, which gives you 15 new avatars to unlock in every season.
