  1. Greetings Heroes, It’s been an exciting couple of months here behind the scenes on the Eternal Arena team, and we have a lot of exciting news to share with you. Since the start of the year, we’ve been working on a huge project that is just now starting to bear fruit, and we can finally tell you all about it! Eternal Arena was initially developed in partnership between the North American office of NetEase and one of our development teams in China, but as time went on we began to see that placing full developmental control under the NA office would have enormous advantages. It allows us to make changes to the game faster and more effectively. I’m happy to say this has been accomplished, and you’re about to start seeing the results!! So what does this mean for YOU? Well we’ve been gathering feedback for some time on changes you, the players of Eternal Arena, would like to see, and over the next several months we’ll be rolling out some modifications to EA that we’re very excited about. Double Gold One of the most frequent requests we get is for more gold. After all, every hero you level up needs gear leveled up to match right? As a result, we’ve decided to schedule a double gold event once a month for the next couple of months. Servers Similarly, we’ve heard that some of the older servers are getting lower in population as people have migrated to newer EA servers, so we’ll be looking into server population and combining some servers that have become less utilized. Heroes The biggest bit of feedback we get on a regular basis is a desire for us to look at improving some of the less used Heroes and making them more competitive. Hero balance takes longer than the other changes mentioned above, but it is something we are actively working to improve. It won’t be right away, but in coming months you’ll see older heroes getting buffs. What about new Heroes? I’m glad you asked. We like new Heroes too, and we’re going to continue to roll them out every other month. In between, we’re giving people the opportunity to get some of our most popular Heroes that they may have previously missed. In May we’ll have Kagemasa, followed by a brand new 4* Hero in June. July will see the return of Bane! Also – I don’t want to miss this opportunity to thank you for enjoying and playing Eternal Arena; it humbles us that so many of you continue to play this game that we love creating and supporting. Cheers to this new direction and the role you will continue to play in it! Regards, Alex Liang Eternal Arena Producer
