Hello Heirs.
This is Epic Seven.

 

The day that our Heirs have been waiting for is almost here! From December 26, 2019, you will be able to participate in the World Arena!

 

The World Arena is a new Arena content where Epic Seven Heirs can have real-time PVP battles. Heirs on the Korea, Asia, Global, and Europe servers will now be able to show their skill to all the Heirs around the world. We hope that with the addition of this new content, our Heirs will form new strategies and utilize more Heroes. 

 

The World Arena will have Pre-season 1 and Pre-season 2 before the regular season begins. Pre-season 1 will begin on December 26. We will listen to the opinions of our Heirs during both pre-seasons and use them to make improvements before the start of the regular season.  

 

Now, we will give you more details regarding the World Arena. 

 

[Pre-Season 1] World Arena Participation Method 

 

The Pre-Season 1 World Arena will be open 24 hours every day, excluding maintenance periods, allowing our Heirs to participate as much as possible. Additionally, no currency will be required to enter. Heirs on the Korea, Asia, Global and Europe servers who are Account Rank 60 and above can participate in the World Arena. As no currency will be required to enter Pre-Season 1, no rewards will be awarded for World Arena.

 

Please note that after the end of Pre-Season 1, the World Arena participation method and rewards may be adjusted and applied to Pre-Season 2. 

 

How to Play 

 

Tapping the Arena icon on the lobby, players may enter either the Arena or the World Arena.

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release)

 

 

Tapping on the World Arena tab will direct you to the following lobby window.

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release)

 

 

In the World Arena lobby, players can view the team that they used in the previous battle, their World Arena ranking, World Arena grade, and their Victory/Defeat stats. When you tap on the ‘Ready for battle’ button, you will be matched with an Heir with whom you have similar victory points and stats. You will not be matched continuously with the same opponent.
 

(*This video clip was taken from our test server, and may be different upon release)

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release)

 

In the World Arena, Heirs will find a battle opponent regardless of the server. Therefore, as most Heroes and Artifacts have not yet been released on the Japan server, the World Arena for the Japan server will be released at a later date. For the same reason, Heroes and Artifacts that were not released on the Europe server, such as the Guilty Gear Heroes and Artifacts, cannot be used in the World Arena. 

 

Once the matching process is completed, Heirs will be able to see the ID and World Arena ranking of their opponent. Thereafter, players can select and also ban the Heroes to participate in the battle.
 

(*This video clip was taken from our test server, and may be different upon release)

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release)

 

 

See below for more information regarding the Hero selection and ban process. 

 

1. Matched Heirs will take turns to select five Heroes to use in the match 

2. Players will then be able to select an opponent’s Hero to ban from the match 

3. Players will place the Heroes in the team 

 

Players will have 30 seconds to complete each step. Please see below for more detailed information. 

 

The Heir that will be able to select the first Hero will be chosen at random. This Heir will be able to select one Hero first and then the opponent will be able to select two Heroes and so on. The Heir to select the final Hero will only be able to select one Hero. 

 

Here is a summary of the whole process. 

 

Heir to select Hero first

Heir to select Hero second 

Select 1 Hero

Select 2 Heroes

4

Select 2 Heroes     

5

6

Select 1 Hero 

 

Heirs cannot select the same Hero. For example, one player will be able to select Silver Blade Aramintha while the other player selects Aramintha because these are two different Heroes. However, players will not be able to select Lorina and Commander Lorina as they are the same Hero.

(*This video clip was taken from our test server, and may be different upon release)

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release)

 

 

Once both Heirs have selected 5 Heroes, they can then ban a Hero from the opponent’s list. This process will be conducted simultaneously for both Heirs, and the banned Hero designated by each Heir will be revealed once both Heirs have completed their selection. If you do not ban a Hero within the time limit, one of your opponent's Heroes will be randomly banned. 


How to Play World Arena   
(*This video clip was taken from our test server, and may be different upon release)

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release)

 

 

In World Arena, each Hero’s turn will have a time limit. If the time limit is exceeded, then the AI will automatically use a skill. While Protector’s Punishment will not be active like in standard Arena mode, the World Arena will, after a certain number of turns, increase the amount of damage received by all Heroes as well as decrease the amount of health that can be recovered.

A total of 9 levels will be applied for this rule. As the level increases, the amount of damage inflicted will increase and the amount of health that can be recovered will be decreased.

 

These additional rules are being carefully considered to prevent very long battles in World Arena that may fatigue our Heirs. After Pre-season 1 and Pre-season 2, we will make adjustments to the additional rules to ensure that the World Arena battles end after an appropriate amount of time. The goal of this content is to ensure that our Heirs experience a variety of strategies, as well as to have fun watching the battles. 

 

Just as in the standard Arena, once you have enough souls, you can use Soulburn during your Hero’s turn. Heirs can check the number of Souls that the opponent possesses by checking the section under the health bar. When the opponent uses a Soulburn effect, it will be displayed with a separate effect so that it will be easily distinguishable from a standard attack. Knowing the combat readiness and amount of souls an opponent has will give you a strategic advantage. We hope that our Heirs will enjoy deploying various strategies using features like Soulburn.

 

World Arena Operation Plan 

 

As stated earlier, the World Arena will begin with Pre-Season 1 on December 26, 2019. The regular season will begin once pre-season 2 is completed. 

 

During Pre-Season 1, which is planned to last for about two to four weeks, Heirs will be free to participate in the World Arena, with no restrictions other than the Account Rank requirement. During this time, we hope to receive valuable feedback from our Heirs so that we can enhance the quality of the World Arena content. We hope that you understand that World Arena access could be temporarily suspended if any major issues are discovered during the pre-season. 

 

Pre-Season 2, which will take place after the end of Pre-Season 1, will last for about three months. We will begin the regular season after both Pre-Seasons have been completed. 

 

In the regular Season, we will add a function where Heirs will be able to watch the battles of other Heirs, and a replay function which will allow Heirs to watch their own battles. With the start of the regular Season, players will be able to acquire new currency based on the outcome of the battle, and this new currency can be used to purchase honor rewards from an exclusive shop that will make you stand out amongst other Heirs. 

 

Furthermore, we will continuously update World Arena with different game modes such as friendly matches where Heirs can play against their friends and event matches where specific rules are applied to the match.

 

With the introduction of World Arena, we are preparing to host various events offline. We ask all of our Heirs their support and encouragement. We also hope that you will enjoy creating new strategies with the addition of this new PvP content. 

 

Thank you.

      KataKamu"World Arena participation method and rewards ****may**** be adjusted and applied to Pre-Season 2."

      Please explain how you manage to turn "may" into "will, with new currency needed to enter". Do YOU know what those words mean, poorly-educated boy? I don't need caps to make it clear do I?

      Oh, you're just assuming the worst for upvotes.

      You even quoted "new currency after season 1" even though that does not exist in the post at all. The only thing confirming currency in the post is "With the start of the regular Season, players will be able to acquire new currency BASED ON THE OUTCOME OF THE BATTLE, and this new currency can be used to purchase honor rewards from an exclusive shop " How much more of a troll could you be?

      You got your flamebait "best" comment. Be happy with that and quit before you fall way behind.

      STOVE96464583Oh yeah, i just poorly-educated boy like you say. Does the chore strain you so much that you forgot to entertain yourself? i do correct my comment, and i don't even expect to get much up vote especially on other people comment. Come on man you the best one around here, i'm just a road pebble tried his best explain thing in english.


      forgive me master, all hail Amato.

      cheers?

    I really appreciate the love you are trying to give in to the game... follow giving affection to the game and we will show affection too.

    There are a lot of things that aren't new features that you need to improve by the way.

    THANKS and follow working!

    I've been betting on this. 


    From the looks of it, it doesn't look gated in anyway... which is a huge plus in my book. 


    Second huge plus, no resource rewards which means no grind for collecting. A mode made for pure, unadulterated fun. 


    Third huge plus, the CANCER (Taurus sign is a LIE) of the Collab can't follow us in here, although I'm sad about my baby Baiken.


    The only small, tiny, but still unlikely request I have for this content is that there is a casual and ranked World Arena. Incase, hypothetically speaking, players *coughcough* want to "experiment" with 2* comps such as, hypothetically speaking, quadbuncles. Casual would be a place to try it out with little to no consequence.


    Thinking about it, the way preseason 1 works would essentially be like casual.


    I love RTA because unexpected things like 250 speed Leo's protected by Maya, Crozet and Armin make it through banning and sh*t on your win streak.

      no rewards ultimately means not worth doing .

      STOVE125653236If there is an aspect of a game that is implemented solely for the "fun" of it, that means players that play games for fun will enjoy it. 


      Who plays PvP with "rewards" as a primary incentive? What is the fighting game community? What is the MOBA community? what is the card game community to you? a joke?


      you want another source of grinding? why? There is enough of it. this is how you create artificial stress.


      Making casual RTA for players that like to "have fun" maybe not worth to you, but to those players, it's a reason to keep playing. there is a reason "casual pvp" exists in SO MANY other games.

    2019.12.05 10:55 (UTC+0)

    I hope the background for fighting in RTA will be a different background, and not just the same as normal arena.

    As for currency, please just make it use normal arena currency, but increase our limit to 10 or 15. You've been adding too many currencies into the game and it's starting to get confusing. Heck, just remove the currency cost to be honest, just let people fight each other and let the rewards stay in

      2019.12.05 16:49 (UTC+0)

      There won't be any currency needed to participate in World Arena.

    2019.12.05 11:07 (UTC+0)

    Looks not that bad, but why preseason 1 takes 4 weeks. Why so much? Especially when you note that no currency - no reward. How about add some, such as 70-85 regular gear, which will be change to whatever you plan after preseason 1

    • images
      2019.12.06 09:37 (UTC+0)

      STOVE96464583Yep, for feedback, but to check for issues and get feedbacks 2 weeks more than enough.

      2019.12.08 12:47 (UTC+0)

      STOVE86021812so people don't come here like crybabies downvoting the game saying they don't listen to the community. They will listen for a long amount of time. if you don't wanna contribute at all because "hur dur no rewards = no play", you have no rights to complain afterwards.

    "With the start of the regular Season, players will be able to acquire new currency based on the outcome of the battle, and this new currency can be used to purchase honor rewards from an exclusive shop that will make you stand out amongst other Heirs."

    Just make it give us normal Conquest Points instead of another new currency that we're forced to farm if we don't want to miss out the items that can only be bought with the new currency. Nobody's asking for more currencies, stop adding f*cking currencies.

    • images
      2019.12.05 19:56 (UTC+0)

      STOVE96464583No, I'm saying that adding new currencies when we already have over five million of them is stupid. Not only do I have to worry about my gear, I now have to manage all the currency Smilegate is throwing at me. Are you insane? The few resources we have already works even though it's working horribly, why would you put YET ANOTHER currency? Glory Crests got REMOVED instead of CONVERTED because of Smilegate's incompetency and desire to timegate arena gear, what makes you think they won't add more tedious **** to RTA?

      Read the whole post you neanderthal
      Why even be on the boards of the "worst game ever"?
      Because you're still playing, and want more reasons to keep playing, that's why.

    World arena looks well thought out and will encourage building and using more heroes with not allowing the same heroes in an arena battle. This looks like a fun new game addition. Looking forward to it!
