🧪 The Beta Beat (V58) – New Beach Party Event and Heroes, Untold Tales, Balance updates -- Sharing the Big Picture on What's Going on in Beta

NOTE: Please do not, under any circumstances, share IMAGES OR VIDEOS from Beta in this or any public Forum thread. Violations can cause players to lose their Beta accounts, or threads to be closed down.

:thinking: What’s this all about?

Click Here for Details About This Thread's Intention & Format

Often players on the Forum wonder about what’s going on in Beta.

If you’re a regular reader of the Forum, then you’ll find that there’s actually abundant conversation about what’s going on in Beta at any given time.

And that’s actually allowed!

What’s restricted is images and videos — but discussion is ok:

The challenge is that information is often scattered around the Forum. I’ve created The Beta Beat to help centralize it for those who are interested.

The Beta Beat is a series of threads which are evolving as I get feedback on what’s helpful to players.

My main focus is giving some high-level guidance of what’s going on in current testing, so players outside of Beta can be better informed.

Like Beta itself, this thread is experimental and will evolve based on your feedback.

Information from Beta is frankly often mostly useless, so don’t get too attached.

Details from Beta, especially brand-new Beta content, don’t tend to be very reliable for actual release.

It’s incredibly common that heroes and features are changed during Beta testing, or sometimes even after testing but before release.

That is, after all, the purpose of Beta testing.

So I wouldn’t get too attached to any information from Beta — it’s not unheard of for entire portions of hero skills to be removed or reworked, or for radical changes to hero stats to be made, or for large chunks of new functionality to be completely changed.

Often Incomplete Information Circulates

Many of us have seen screenshots and other information shared on LINE, Discord, Facebook, and other groups — often without context or explanation.

These can lead to confusion and misunderstanding.

Often, early Beta information — the least reliable or useful — is circulated…and then updated information is missed.

I’m hoping centralizing some high-level information on the Forum may help to reduce this as well.

What’s Going on in Beta Right Now

IMPORTANT: I wouldn’t get too attached to any information from Beta — it’s not unheard of for entire portions of heroes or functionality to be removed, reworked, or radically changed beyond recognition.

:left_speech_bubble: Feedback?

I’d love to hear thoughts on whether this information and format is useful, and how you’d like to see information presented in the future. Any thoughts or ideas?

Please try to limit discussion in this thread mostly to the information sharing process and feedback on the thread, so we don’t end up with a jumbled discussion of a bunch of different heroes — use the threads linked above for each individual hero to discuss more.

Thanks! :slight_smile:

A New Seasonal event arrived to Beta.

And the “Big Balance Update” which affect 200+ heroes.

We also got the Aether Reset tokens for testing.


Beach Party Event!!! Hell yeah! :joy:
Can’t wait to see new heroes in bikinis with beach balls and umbrella drinks!


Yay, it’s time for the inevitable aramis nerf


This will be interesting to see where this goes


soon there will be seasonal event monthly


Balance update sounds both exciting and terrifying at the same time.


Here is the topic about the balance updates:


If the aether reset token is not actually obtainable ingame, it’s about as good as non existant. So what, we’ll get one freebie and maybe one extra from time to time if we happened to have LB’d a hero that gets nerfed?

This goes a long way to explaining the lack of creativity in the latest costumes.

HOPING that this aids the laggards meaningfully. Am in @g8slord 's camp, exciting and terrifying.


wow. I mean, summer is already related to the beach, and the Rana/Yunan/Roc costumes are already kinda beach-y… but ok, I understand, SG/Zynga need to create more seasonal events so we have one per month, so… :stuck_out_tongue:


I’m OK with that. Decent rewards vs. time invested.


Sand Empire event will be absorbed by this new event. (At least the portal will have Sand Empires heroes too)


Ah thank you for clarifying, appreciate it!

So, we’ll have 2 summer seasonal summons?

I had a feeling that’s what was coming when you posted Beach Party. Thanks for clarifying. Nobody was pulling in Sand Empire anymore, I suspect.


any words on kalevala?

As I expected, just like the existing hero reset token, only support can grant it. Not surprised.


Kalevala will certainly be for v59 after. One seasonal event at a time, don’t you hurry too much, they need to stop making bugs :grimacing:


my bad, for some reason i thought kalevala was the next seasonal
