Season 5!

Postby pythion » Wed Apr 12, 2017 10:53 am

With the new replays, profile statistics, and captaining pages we've had a surge of Arena fights. In the last 30 days we did more than 660 games and 270 of which were 6vs6 or more. :animals-penguin:

I'm happy to announce more changes that will even the playing field. There will be a static Realm Rank of 11L0 this season and some future balance targeted towards the classes not being played.

More information is included in the comments below.
