EpicDuel Balance Redux

A balance bounty

With all the changes from last week, there were bound to be adjustments, additions, and fixes to better tweak balance back into a healthy place. Remember that balance is an ongoing process that will never be perfect, but it can certainly always be improved through build diversity and intriguing new strategies.

 

Epic Legendary Supporter

As of this update, the 40K Varium package was removed from the game. Congratulations to all who managed to grab EpicDuel's best deal of the year. The 18K Varium and 10K Darkeater promotional packages are still available along with the 2022 Epic Supporter achievement.

 

Battlepass Conclusion

This season's Battlepass will conclude at the end of the day December 4th so you still have some time to collect the last of the rare rewards if you've fallen behind on your challenge grinding!

EpicDuelsgiving 2022

A balance bounty

Class Balance

All classes have received some major changes this update.

Epic Legendary Supporter

Although there will be no Gifting event this year, we are still offering the 40K Varium package for those who wish to stock up. This package also comes with the Epic Legendary Supporter 2022 achievement. This offer will only be available until December 1st, 2022!

The other 10K Artix Point packages will also include the evolving Epic Supporter 2022 achievements. If you purchased a 10K AP package since Friday November 18th, 2022, you will receive this achievement retroactively. Please note the Varium offered by the other 10K AP packages have not been increased this year.

We've also added a 2022 World Cup achievement if you still needed a few more rating points to your next star!

 

Battlepass Encore

Some of you have been extremely diligent in completing your daily and weekly Battlepass challenges, reaching the coveted level 50 milestone. To make completing challenges worthwhile after hitting the cap, we've expanded the pass to include 10 more levels with substantial Varium and Credit rewards! This Battlepass will officially end at the end of the day on December 4th. In the future, we expect passes to last about 30 days, but due to some early hiccups, we're letting this season run a bit longer.

Battlepass Patch

Today we made a small update to EpicDuel's Battlepass to fix some issues with certain NPC and boss challenges not counting towards completion of the challenges. This error was due partially to some NPCs that weren't designated as bosses not being counted towards the challenge. Though this error was difficult to isolate, it was fortunately easy to fix, and all NPC challenges should register as intended.

As compensation for those who who were unable to complete the bugged challenges, we awarded 10,500 Battlepass XP to all players with more than 0 progress this season. Hopefully that's the last of the issues for now, and you can continue to enjoy the current season uninterrupted!

Nightwraith's New Bounties

Nightwraith's New Bounties

Battlepass Changes

Based on your ongoing feedback we have made the following changes to the Battlepass Challenges.

  • Reduced max cap on 2v2 challenge to 10. Increased base XP to 200 from 100.
  • Reduced max use of coupons challenges to 1 from 5. Increase base XP on Class Change Coupon to 1000.
  • Reduced Hair Change base challenge XP to 50 from 250.

So far we've received a wealth of suggestions for improvements, changes, and additions to the Battlepass, and we will consider all of them as we improve what we can in the current season and look towards the next. Thank you for your patience as we build upon this robust system and help reveal its full potential.

Battlepass Online!

Battlepass Online!

Battlepass Online!

We're commemorating AE's 20th anniversary with the biggest feature we've added to EpicDuel in years: Battlepass! This feature will allow all players to earn new weapons, items, styles, cores, and currency just by completing specific daily and weekly challenges! 

To start, simply make progress towards any of the challenges available. You will being to earn XP automatically as you complete the various tasks. If you're stuck by a challenge or two, you can wait for them to reset or purchase a level worth of XP to advance and claim more prizes. Also, an Enhanced Battlepass is available to unlock even more prizes if you desire.

This season is designed to last until December, enough time for those who complete challenges every day to have a chance to claim up to level 50. Spider designed this system cleverly enough that we have tremendous flexibility to add content and expand challenges as the feature evolves. We hope you enjoy what is the first iteration of a powerful and exciting new feature!

Special thanks to Spider, Acatriel, and our Testers who helped see this feature from inception to final delivery!

 

O.M.G. Mode

As a surprise bonus addition to this release, we've introduced a new battle mode: O.M.G.

According to our programmer Spider, this acronym stands for Offensive Magnitude of Gorgonzola (because you're cheesing your opponent). Don't let the punny name fool you -- this mode is brutal! This mode makes the following adjustments to regular battle:

  • HP multiplier of x1337
  • DMG multiplier of x750
  • Maximum cooldown of 1 for every ability
  • Unlimited energy
  • Flat +25% stun resist
  • Legendary Points disabled

To maintain its novelty, this mode will only be available for a limited time so experiment while you can!

 

20th AE Anniversary

The main meat of this release was the Battlepass, but in recognition of 20 year, we thought the least we could do was offer a rare achievement to claim from the Achievement shop to mark this momentous occasion! If you're a baseball fan, you might also note the Big Show 2022 achievement in the seasonal portion as well.

In addition to all the other anniversary festivities, AQ3D is offering FREE Artix Points if you log in and find the secret code! Sounds like a deal! Read more on how you can redeem the code: https://www.artix.com/posts/how_to_redeem_artix_points/

 

Mysterious Man Returns

In celebration of AE's 20th anniversary, we're bringing back a boss from EpicDuel's recent past: The Mysterious Man! Visit his domain in the Afterlife to vanquish this foe again to receive a new tiered achievement. In recognition of those who already experienced and conquered this adversary, the original achievement will remain rare.

 

Techstalker Tech

In recognition of AE's 20th anniversary, we're delaying removing the Techstalker Promo until November 7th! This should allow everyone who's either been hibernating or saving up enough time to grab these items before they're gone!

Sanguine Showcase Battlepass

EpicDuel's first Battlepass is still under construction, but nearing completion as we enter the final rounds of testing. This set's theme was crafted by Acatriel with a focus on a fusion of Blood Magic and Technology into an unparalleled Sanguine Showcase! When implemented, this collection will offer more content than any other promotion in EpicDuel's history. 

An incomplete list of what the Battlepass will include:

  • 4 new armors!
  • 22 new items!
  • 6 new achievements!
  • 6 new cores!
  • 24 new styles!

We're working hard to make this new feature a success and thank you for your patience. Stay tuned for updates when the feature is finally ready to be released in-game!

 

Power Weekend Returns

EpicDuel 2022 Player Survey

Earlier this week we released a survey via Twitter and email to collect player feedback. So far we've received dozens of results, but we're posting it again here just in case you missed those social media and email links or just didn't feel like responding before and forgot. If you have any thoughts on balance, new features, or any other improvements for the game, now is your time to share your feedback! Want more boss? Wish Tactical Mercenaries were more viable? Feel like Dexterity builds should have their time to shine? Want new battle modes and events? Let us know!

To begin the survey follow this link to help us build a better EpicDuel in 2023!

Thank you for your participation and support!
