THE BIGGEST UPDATE OF THE YEAR
Two new cards, the Path of Legends (a new ranked mode!), Trophy Road rework, Deck Explorer, new King Levels, and much more!
TWO NEW CARDS
Two new cards are entering the Arena!
Monk is a brand new Champion who has spent years studying his unique fighting style in his Arena, the Silent Sanctuary. This Arena is where he will be unlockable on the Trophy Road at 6500 Trophies!
When attacking, Monk unleashes a powerful 3-hit combo that pushes back enemies with the final strike! This final super-punch includes a pushback which deals extra damage to every affected unit (like the Log).
Monk channels his meditative powers through Pensive Protection, creating a protective aura around himself and nearby allies, reducing Damage taken and reflecting any projectile that comes his way.
Yes, this includes Rockets!
Phoenix is a new Legendary flying unit with Melee Attacks. Once defeated, it will explode in a fiery… fire… and deal Area Damage to nearby units and buildings, retreating into a Phoenix Egg.
If this Egg is not destroyed in time, Phoenix will be reborn (bet you didn’t see that one coming) at full Hitpoints, ready to fight again!
Note: Phoenix will only be reborn from an Egg once per deploy.
PATH OF LEGENDS
A NEW COMPETITIVE RANKED MODE
The Path of Legends replaces the old League system on Trophy Road and consists of 10 Leagues, with the Hall of Fame in the final League containing the best players in the world.
LEAGUES AND LEVEL CAP
When reaching Arena 15 at 5000 Trophies, you will unlock the new Path of Legends by tapping the icon next to the Battle button on the main screen.
The Party! button is now available from the hamburger menu (top right on the main screen).
Each League is level capped, which means that your Cards or Tower Power can not go above a certain level defined by the League you are in.
CLIMB THE PATH
After winning a battle in the Path of Legends, you will climb up to another step, pushing you closer to the next league.
There are two types of steps, STONE STEPS and GOLDEN STEPS.
Stone steps will break after a loss, sending you back down the Path. Golden steps do not break! Once you’ve reached a golden step, you will not lose progress even if you lose a battle. Aim for the golden steps!
When you reach a new League, you cannot go back down to the previous Leagues through losing.
The best of the best!
In the Ultimate Champion League, players are awarded a rating based on the number of wins and losses they accumulated on their journey to the top League, starting from Master I (League 4).
This rating will evolve depending on win rate, and will reset with each ranked Season.
If you’re among the best 10,000 players, you will be awarded a rank and enter the Hall of Fame! The Top 1000 ranked players will appear in a Global Leaderboard, displayed at the end of the Path of Legends.
RANKED SEASON RESET
At the end of each Ranked Season, all players will restart their journey through the Path of Legends.
Based on your season finish, you will receive a Win Multiplier that will help you progress to where you were before the reset. The Win Multiplier will decrease after each Battle you win.
The above may be subject to change in future Ranked Seasons.
Of course, there will be rewards for players who choose to compete in ranked mode!
You claim rewards as you climb the Path of Legends. Some will be one-time rewards (displayed on the left of the Path), whereas others (on the right of the Path) will refresh after each season reset.
TROPHY ROAD REWORK
With the new Path of Legends opening, we have made some changes to the Trophy Road!
The Trophy Road now stops at 7500 Trophies and will not reset at the start of a Season anymore. You will be able to earn Trophies, visit new Arenas, and collect one-time rewards on the way. Once reaching the end of Trophy Road, you will not win (or lose) any more Trophies. But you will still be able to play in it, and get Chests and Victory Gold, without the fear of losing anything!
With the addition of 6 new Arenas on the Trophy Road, Chest content and Victory Gold will also scale up. The higher you are, the more rewards you will earn!
LEVEL GATES AND TROPHY FLOORS
The Arenas on Trophy Road will now have Level Gates. You will have to gain enough experience and upgrade your King Level to access them.
All Arenas will also have Trophy Floors, meaning that once you’ve reached a new Arena, you won’t be able to go back to the previous one.
Champions are now available for players on the Trophy Road starting at 5500 Trophies (Arena 16, King Level 33).
Yes, King Level 33!
More about that in the next section...
KING LEVEL REWORK
Your King Level will now be separated from your Crown Tower level and will go up to level 50. The maximum Crown Tower level, now called TOWER POWER, will still be 14 and applies to both King and Princess Towers. Card Levels will remain unchanged (Level 14 is still the Max Level for cards)!
Here’s a handy conversion chart for what to expect with your King Level when the update drops.
For example: if you’re currently King Level 9 with 6000 XP points, your new King Level will be somewhere between 22 and 26, and you’ll keep your Tower Power at 9.
King Level 14 players will receive ALL of the experience that they have already accumulated whilst at Max Level.
WHY DO THIS?
We consistently see that matchmaking is a major source of feedback from our players.
By adding additional King Levels, we can better match players against each other (going from 14 levels to match players by, to 50, is a big deal!) and provide fairer matchmaking for you all.
You will also get a nice Level Up Chest with each new King Level, so you will be getting more frequent rewards by leveling up!
OTHER CHANGES AND ADDITIONS
The Deck Explorer is a new feature that will help you to find new decks! You will find the Deck Explorer button below your Battle Deck, next to the Mastery button.
The Deck Explorer will give you results based on what is popular and proven to work in your current Arena, but it will also take your Card Levels into account to make truly personalized decks.
The Deck Explorer will give you multiple decks to choose from, and if you don’t like any of those, you can continue your search by including or excluding more cards!
Daily Tasks are available on the home screen, and will give you rewards for completing certain objectives every day.
There are three tasks to complete each day and each task can be completed simultaneously. When all Daily Tasks are complete, you get the Daily Bonus! When a new day starts, unclaimed rewards will remain, and new Daily Tasks will be available once the previous rewards are claimed.
By getting every Daily Bonus in a week, you will unlock a Weekly Bonus which gives you some juicy rewards!
The Hoggy Bank is a new premium feature that will appear on the home screen from time to time, and will hold either Gems or Gold.
When you earn Gold while the Golden Hoggy Bank is active, you will receive additional Gold (the exact amount can vary) that will be stored in the Hoggy Bank. During the time that the Hoggy Bank is active you will be able to break it (for a price) and collect the goodies inside!
NEW MASTERY TASKS
We’ve added a third tier of Mastery Tasks for the following cards:
NEW MAGIC ITEMS
Champion Wild Card and Champion Chest!
Three cards are getting Balance Changes with the update:
- Hitpoints: ☝️ (+3%)
- Goblins Count: ☝️ (3 -> 4)
- First Hit Speed: 👇 (slower, 0,2s -> 0,4s)*
*This change will also affect Goblins in Goblin Gang, Goblin Barrel, and Goblin Drill
- Will now be greyed out (unable to play next) directly after playing a Champion
