Test Server Patch - Iteration 13 - 19 May 2021

Recommended Posts

Iteration 13

Greetings Skylords, Skyladies and other Skyfolk!

As some of you might be aware, we have two servers that all players can freely join:

  1. The main server where everyone plays on.
  2. A test server that has card and map balance iterations, work in progress features and where everyone has all cards and maps unlocked. New content first goes to the test server before it reaches the main server. We have a Discord server dedicated to discussing these balance changes. To join the test server you simply need to launch LauncherTest.exe located in your BattleForge installation folder. 

The test server works with iterations and starting from now we plan to also share the patch notes of the test server iterations here. Keep in mind that none of these changes are final and that they might change before they go into our main server. If you would like to read more about these changes, check out the aforementioned balancing Discord. Also do keep in mind that the test server usually has multiple versions of a card for testing purposes.

Anyways, without further ado, our last balance iteration from 19th May, 2021. These are also added to the wiki page: https://skylords-reborn.fandom.com/wiki/Balancing
