Brave Warriors! We’ve improved many things since Closed Beta; take the time to review these notes before entering the battlefield once more in the Open Beta from February 9 to February 12.

Then check out which Faction is leading on the War of the Factions page!

Online Sessions

  • Multiple major fixes and improvements.
  • PC only for OB: during rematch, once all players are ready, the next match automatically start (6+ players in session) or the session is automatically disbanded (5- players in session).
  • PC only for OB: fixed a bug where you could “hang” in a zombie session making all attempts to join a new session ending with an error message finishing by “004” or “008”.


  • Fixed a bug where some matchmaking requests bypassed all parameters creating unbalanced and cross-continent matches.
  • Improved geo-localization of players.


  • Increased the amount of Steel awarded at end of matches for all game modes. Example : a PvP Dominion match reward increased from 30 to 40 Steel.


  • Contract Orders refresh frequency has been raised. You will have three updates throughout the Open BETA (initial ones + new ones on Saturday and Sunday).

Latency Kick

  • Following the Closed BETA results, the latency kick feature was reconfigured with slightly lower latency values.

Teleport Exploit

  • All Assassins type heroes can no longer deflect soldiers strikes.
  • It was not an intended mechanic and it introduced a bug where deflecting a soldier strike while locked on an enemy hero would teleport you to the locked hero, even across the map.
