v1.3.0.0 Changes:

  • Added Region support for EU-West. Players will have a choice on which region they would prefer to play. The system is smart enough to automatically attempt to place you on a lower ping server before assigning you to a less favorable region. Most players should have US-East and EU-West selected (assuming they are both playable for you) since your best region will be weighted more heavily automatically in the matchmaker.

  • Ranked Season 1 has begun! Players will be able to team up to climb the ranked ladder on level 10+ Characters! Your rating is tied to your character, not your account. Your ranking will be the foundation for Esports eligibility for most of the automated tournaments in Season 1. Your first few ranked matches will swing your rating significantly while the system determines your proper rating.

  • The Ranked Ladder is now visible on the Esports tab. We'll be adding the Tournaments section later.

  • Character Level is now hidden in Quick Play. Players were frequently dodging games based on Character Level. Instead of punishing that behavior we’re reshaping the mentality of the game mode. Quick Play is intended to be a fast casual mode that you can just hop on and get a match in. We want players to use this mode to level characters, experiment and learn new things, all while being friendly to new players.
  • Removed the “dinging” sounds.
  • Blackwood Vale arena no longer poisons when stepping in the water and no longer burns when touching the torches. This was disproportionately frustrating a lot of Assassin players due to Stealth interactions, as well as new players that had no idea that these areas were hazardous.
  • Improved the quality of loot contained in Winner’s Satchels.
