The Feedback Summary of V51 Beta Build 2 (Monster Island) has arrived on the same day as the current Beta, but I was busy with adding new topics and I forgot to add it here.

So now here it is:

Stay tuned as the final Beta for V51 is expected tomorrow.

i agree on the alliance vs alliance aspect. Because alot of alliances will be placed with the top ones, and there’s no point in competing in that adpect since the top alliances will always be on top, just like Mythic Titans and Alliance Quest

What I saw from Puzzle combat I also agree on this. If there’s a maximum number of possible points, it makes more sense if the rewards are point related. Maybe if you get 99% of the points top tier, 90% second tier and so on. There is no real competition in this event and it feels useless to try to implement this

The tesiing of V51 Beta build 3 is just ended.

The Final build for V51 is expected today.

The build arrival is now confirmed:

My personal expectation:
Contest of Elements for another element + 8 more heroes for the event.

But this is just a guess.

i will patiently wait for the new hero topics to see what these new heroes will do. But with Morlovia getting new heroes, Christmas family should get at least 2 legendaries, and Springvale should get at least 3 to make each of the seasonal summons not only up to date, but also make them have roughly the same amount of heroes

I have started to work on them.

Meanwhile the balance update is added here:

I was too excited about the tomes of experience change to mention this before. I really am glad they are doing this. I was thinking about my EHTs not long ago, and without new heroes, I was unlikely to use any until next Kalevala. Not that I have all of the current ones, but having c MN, c Lepus, Roostley and c Yunan already, I just didn’t care too much about any of the other heroes. There’s good ones I don’t have, just not worth going after to me

Hey Play,

thanks for the info!

Can you also check with SG on their stance for ridicoulus power difference between latest heroes and season 1 double costumes?? (Sekhmet was still featured yesterday for 1st time and is behind more than 20 power vs S1 double costumes).

Please kindly asks them to tone down S1 double costume bonus and rather up a notch their specials of those heroes.

Also buff Atlantis S2 costumes and tavern ones who are behind normal S1, S3 and Challenge event bonuses… thank you :slight_smile:
