Many of you have undoubtedly noticed that there’s been a surprising lack of news for Echo of Combats recently. That’s because our team have been busy working on a number of major updates to make the game even more interesting and player-friendly.
Levelling Classes, Alignments, and Heroes
The upcoming update contains the system of caste development for classes and alignments, as well victory counters for each hero.
By playing class- and alignment-specific cards in battles, the player will gradually accumulate experience in corresponding castes, levelling them up eventually. With each new level, she will gain a random free foil card of the caste--first, a silver one; then, a gold one. After all free foil cards of the caste have been acquired, the caste turns elite, and new experience can only be gained for ranked victories. However, each new level will bring a booster pack with it!
The amount of experience gained in a battle depends on the number of caste cards played, their costs and rarity. Besides, experience is boosted by victories, however, before the cast turns elite, players will gain experience points even when losing.
In addition to castes, players will be able to improve their heroes as well. From now on, all your ranked victories with each hero will be accumulated. As soon as a hero has 200 victories, her portrait will get a silver border; after 500 victories, it will get a gold border; and 1,000 victories will add a crown to it.
In addition to game mechanics, we have been developing the setting of Echo of Combats. Now, each card in your collection will have some flavour text that will deepen your understanding of the game world and may even make you smile! Besides, artists of each card are now listed properly.
In the future, we are planning to develop a story-based mode for Echo of Combats, as well as its competitive mode.
Earlier, any Internet-related issues caused the battle to automatically fail. This was a flagrant injustice, and we put much effort into repairing it. Now you will be able to resume your last battle right where it broke off, provided you manage to re-establish your connection within a few minutes. Besides, even if you have a poor connection or experience short break-offs, you will still be able to play with some delays or even without them!
Very soon, even more interesting things will be added. Right now we’re working on some large updates. Thank you for staying with us and fighting on the Echo of Combats battlegrounds!
