Release Notes

Main Changes

1. Changes to Personal Missions

  • The third operation (Object 279E) of the new campaign will become available.
  • Added a new type of missions that should be completed within a certain number of battles. Otherwise, the progress is reset and the mission should be started anew.  Three mission types are available in the operation: 
    • Accumulative: requires achieving a certain value by a specified parameter. The mission lasts until the player fulfills the set condition or runs out of attempts.
    • Series: requires completing the set condition within several battles; at the same time the number of attempts is bigger than the number of required completions.
    • Continuous: requires fulfilling the set condition in every battle of the series. A failed attempt interrupts the series.
  • The Pause button is now available in the mission profiles of the operation. It allows pausing a mission: the progress will be suspended until the player continues it. Players can take some rest and be not afraid of losing progress.
  • Improvements to the reward screens:
    • The display of accumulative conditions in the operation profile according to the common interface of such missions.
    • Proper display of missions that have interchangeable conditions "OR"

  • The Stronghold option will be replaced with the Clans option for non-clan players. The option content will be changed too.
  • Now the Clan screen provides information about clans and their advantages; it also displays a list of clans that players can join without application approval (immediately after clicking the button).
