Hi, everyone arena of valor’s first new version of the year has a lot in store for you based on community feedback. Including iPhone 10 adaptation, gold cap changes giving a gold bonus for equipping, skins new avatar, frames, and additional art and UI optimizations.
Full-Screen Mobile Devices Adaptation
AOV has been working round the clock to further improve the gameplay experience for all players. Now AOV is adapted to work on the iPhone 10 as well as other full-screen mobile devices.
Player avatars will be placed on the left and right sides of the screen during battle. You can also lock onto specific enemy heroes by tapping the Avatar on the right side of the screen for a precise kill.
Gold Cap Changes
AOV also noticed that many players found the daily gold cap to be too low. Upon further research into the actual data, they found that the gold cap mechanic costs the most discomfort during the weekend, not the weekdays.
Therefore to help alleviate the potential downsides of this they changed the daily gold cap to a weekly gold cap. That way players can earn more gold on the days they play the most.
At the same time if you only have a limited time to play every week they have the new weekly reward for you. Even if you miss the daily rewards sometimes you can still earn a weekly reward.
Gold Bonus For Skins
In addition to this, equipping a skin will now earn you an additional 10% bonus gold per battle. Please note all skins no matter the rarity or if it’s a trial card or not will provide you with the same bonus. AOV hope all of these nice skins can provide both a visual bonus as well as a direct benefit to your gameplay experience.
Your profile images can also be decorated with the new frames. In the new version go to player info to set different frames for your avatar.
Different frames can be earned by completing achievements, participating in in-game events, and buying specific skins.
Show what you’ve achieved in the Arena of Valor. After the new version releases, they will give all players 3 frames for free as a gift.
Art And UI Optimizations
At the same time, they have further optimized the art of the Antara battlefield. Through updated light effects the battlefield is even more realistic. In addition to realistic lighting, they’ve added high light effects to the terrain including higher ground, the river, and also grass thus further enriching the visual experience.
The user interface of the ranked match has also been optimized to provide a more optimized experience.
Events have also been changed to be more visually appealing. Now event details and reward info will be presented to players in a more intuitive manner.
We’re really looking forward to giving all of you this update and we hope you enjoy it as much as possible. See you on the Antara battlefield.
