Goodbye Guardian

I'd like to take a minute to deviate from just posting game updates/events/patch notes to wish a fond farewell to Battlejack's community manager and a friend to us all, Kimundi. If you're familiar with him from the Discord server, or you've ever interacted with Battlejack via facebook chances are he's helped you with your questions. While it's only been a short while his impact has been pretty large.

It's been a great time and we wish you well in whatever comes next!

Odr and Fenrir!

Hello Summoners!

New altar heroes have arrived! Starting now, you can unlock Mad God Odr and Wolf God Fenrir in the creation altar! (Find it next to the arena)

These divine heroes take up a lot of party space, but pack a SERIOUS punch. Odr's skills add a huge risk-reward twist to battle, and can transfer stat buffs between the enemy and your party. Fenrir's 'Release the Chains' skill is insanely powerful, but at the cost of debuffing some of his stats.

Use them wisely and you'll obliterate your foes! Their Ragnarok skill is the ultimate gamble -- it raises ATK, DEF, and REC x4 but triggers Sudden Death after 7 turns. Make it count!

Battlejack 2.1 Patch Notes!

Hello Guardians!

Battlejack will be updated to version 2.1 tomorrow, the maintenance will begin at 08.00 CET and should last 30 minutes, if everything goes well. You can find the exact time for your region here: http://bit.ly/2Est3Gp 

Don’t forget to update your game during the maintenance!

        If you are on Android, update the game through the “My Apps and Games” menu in the Play Store.

        If you are on IOS, you can find the update by refreshing the list in your “Updates” tab in the Appstore.

 

So, what’s new?

What’s new? Well a lot of things! Be prepared, this will be a looong patchnotes. Go grab a coffee (or a beverage of your preference) and let’s get started!

The Dark Maze is now officially opened and we are happy to continue including new features to it. With 2.1, we will see some long-awaited improvements: the ability to cure the Maze Sickness, guild rewards, a leaderboard and a strategy section! We’ll look into this in a bit more details below.

We are also introducing four new heroes in the game! Two available through rare summons: Rosilda and Rane and two new Altar heroes: Fenrir and Odr!

Some highly requested Quality of Life features are also coming in this update: replay button, next dungeon button and changes to energy refill.

We have also done some rebalancing about the arena, the quests related to it and the Glory Shop. More details below!

 

New Heroes

Four new heroes are now available in the game!

 

 

Rane is a Ranged Fire hero with the Piercing and God Hunter traits who is “just so supreme”. His skill allows him to buff his own critical chance to 80% for the next 5 turns.

His partner is Rosilda, a ranged Mechanical Water Hero.

 

 

A Veteran of the Imperial army, she can use her Grenade to remove stats buff and stun the enemy team!

Rane and Rosilda share a combo skill: Suppression Fire.
“ATK x20.0 Fire attack on single enemy which decreases DEF to 0 and Accuracy by -50 for 3 turns”

The Altar will now offer you to summon two new Gods: Fenrir and Odr.

Odr, the Mad God is a Dark Spellcaster Divine Hero.

 

 

His skill can literally make you go mad. Magnum Experimentum has a chance to switch all the buffs from an enemy and the debuffs from your party. We can’t wait to see what you will do with this…

His partner in crime is Fenrir, a Magical Divine Melee Earth beast.

 

 

His powerful Earth skill comes at a cost, as it will decrease his own ATK, DEF and REC for 5 turns.

The two of them are waiting to wreak havoc, a perfect example is the combo skill they share. Waiiit for it…

Ragnarök
“ATK x4, DEF x4 and REC x4 buff to the party for 7 turn(s) but will trigger Sudden Death when the duration ends.”
We will destroy you, or we will die trying!

 

New Dark Maze features

Update 2.1 will improve the Maze with new features:

        Leaderboards: you will be able to see how far players got and in which order. It’s time to dig faster!

        Strategy screen: need some help clearing a section of the Maze? This tab will show you the most successful heroes in each section!

        Guild rewards: each time a guild member clears a section of the Maze, their guild will get a reward!

        4-Stars Mort pieces (10x) have been added to the Maze Shop.

        Revive from Maze Sickness: your favorite Hero has fallen in the Maze? You can now ask your guildmates to donate potions to revive your heroes affected by Maze Sickness. You can find the option from the Edit Maze Parties menu:

 

 

Quality of Life changes

        When refilling your energy for Gems, you will now receive your maximum energy cap, and not the energy needed to reach your cap. In short: more energy per refill (except if you were at 0).

        Autoplay is now available from the first time you are playing a dungeon after completing the tutorial.

        The confirmation to enter a dungeon without reinforcement will no longer be shown after Chapter 6.

        The confirmation to enter a dungeon with all chests slots full will only be shown once. It will appear again the next time the slots are full. Playing several dungeons in a row with full chest slots will no longer ask for confirmation every time.

        The Tinker will now show a red dot notification if you have enough materials to craft a rune.

        You will now be able to see how many turns are left on your status effects in battle (for example: burn, attack boost, silence, etc).

        And let’s not forget (drumroolllllls) this highly requested feature: Replay and Next Dungeon buttons! They will be shown on the rewards screen. Look at those sweet buttons, can’t wait to click them right?

 

 

Changes to the Arena

We have been closely monitoring the arena environment and we will be introducing some changes to shake things up.
So far, it seems having a good defense is far more important than having a good attack. We are introducing the following changes to the Arena.

        Only 2 defenses will be added to your trophies. After this, you will need to attack again to win trophies. This is meant to avoid players sitting idle with a very good defense team and getting trophies from a streak of defense wins.

        The max number of Arena invites has been decreased from 5 to 3 to compensate the previous change. However, you will be able to gain more Invites through Arena quests.

        The Arena Champion Daily Quest requirements have been reduced and the rewards increased.

        The Gladiator Daily Quest requirement have been reduced from 6 to 4.

        The requirements for Arena quests requiring hero evolutions have been decreased from 10 to 5.

        And finally, you asked for it: the buying limit for Alchemy and Spirit Stones have been removed in the Glory Shop (yeaaaaaaah).

We will be closely monitoring the effects of those changes and your feedback and will adapt them if necessary over the coming days!

 

Balance changes

        Awaken bonuses will now only multiply the base stats without including the runes bonuses. Some awaken skills were a bit too strong in our opinion!

        Elemental summons chances for 4 and 5 stars have been slightly decreased in the Guild and Glory shops.

        The price of Elemental summons in the Guild Shop have been increased to 950.

        Water Spirit dungeon (normal) last boss Water Lord Henrich changed to Water Mage Henrich.

        Water Spirit dungeon (nightmare) last boss Water God Henrich changed to Water Lord Henrich.

 

Bug fixes

        Fixed a rare bug causing an out of sync issue when entering the Arena, and causing players to lose their invite. The issue may still happen, but you will now longer lose your invite! We are still investigating what is causing this issue.

        The 20% HP penalty when you leave the Maze is now calculated on the current HP.

 

Still here? Well, it’s enough for this week!

Don’t hesitate to give your feedback in Discord or on the Facebook page!
