- BATTLEDOME OPEN BETA!
It's here! The New Battledome is now open to all players to beta test. There are still kinks to work out, of course, but we thought it was time everyone had a chance to give it a go, discuss, and send us feedback!
Since it's beta, some weapons are touchy, some challengers are being mean, prizes need some tweaking, etc., so please send us a bug report for anything you find. You can also check out the Beta News page for information on known issues (i.e. what not to report!) before you dive in.
A few important notes from Beta News:
- Your old stats are safe and sound! They will be merged with your new stats later on in Open Beta.
- If you're having issues fighting, it may be IE8 or a browser add-on. Try upgrading IE or disabling add-ons.
- Equipping from your inventory is still disabled! Visit the Stats section in the Battledome to equip/unequip.
After you've gone through all the notes, feel free to rush head-long into battle or check out the new Tutorial to get yourself acquainted first. New challengers await!
We still have bugs to fix, issues to work out, and feedback to review -- plus stances and abilities revamps on the way -- but we look forward to hearing what you think so far! Please do send us your feedback or join your fellow 'Domers on the Battledome Board to discuss.
We hope you like it!
Note to Closed Beta Testers: Your hard work and feedback during the Closed Beta was AWESOME! Thank you so much for all your help. We're working on a little gift to show our appreciation, so expect that in the next week or so. :D
