  • CLIENT UPDATE: A Prestigious Update

    Our latest full update is now available! Grab it from the store now. Players will have approximately 24 hours to upgrade at your convenience. After this time, all players will be forced to upgrade, and you will be unable to access the game until you do.

    Because of a fair amount of optimization we have performed, it is highly recommended that you perform a clean install in order to upgrade. This means you should ensure your account is bound to Google Play, GameCenter, or Facebook, and then uninstall the game, reboot your device, and then download the update from the store. By doing this, you will be sure to take advantage of all of the optimizations available.

    Let's get to it!

    PLEASE DO NOT UNLOCK THE RUNE SLOTS YET - We've discovered an issue that didn't occur in testing where the rune slots are locking again on restarting the application, and we are investigating this immediately. Will let you know when this is resolved.


    Game Enhancements
    - Player Stat Card!
    Tap on the Level bar to bring up a new window showing your account stats, including an easy to read display of the experience required to reach your next level! We will be launching with a partial display of this new feature, showing your basic account information such as name, guild, level, join date, ally code, and player ID. Expanded stats will be made available soon, which is planned to include win/loss ratios, maximum banner and trophy counts, and other fun information.

    - Prestige Runes! A new type of rune is now available! Each squad slot now has the ability to unlock a third, special rune slot that accepts the new Prestige Runes. The Prestige Rune slot will cost 100 gems to unlock, per squad. This is a one-time cost - once the slot is unlocked on that squad, it's always unlocked. Only Prestige Runes may only be activated on the third rune slot. These new runes are super-powered, providing a tremendous benefit, but last for a very short time - just enough to give you that extra edge you need! Prestige Runes may be purchased for gems or cash, and the pack for these will become available in the Items store starting with the pack turnovers on Thursday 11/1, 2pm PDT.

    - Prestige Gear Slot! All heroes of every rarity now have a bonus gear slot available, which may be unlocked on each hero using gems. This extra gear slot will only allow Legendary and Mythic gear to be equipped. All heroes regardless of rarity will have the ability to unlock a Prestige Gear slot, meaning for our Red Jenny and Rare events, you can now improve and diversify your squads with gear. Each rarity has its own cost to unlock the slot: Common: 5 gems, Uncommon: 10 gems, Rare: 15 gems, Epic: 25 gems, Legendary and Mythic: 50 gems.

    - New Packs! There will be 3 new packs added to the store, which will go live on Thursday 5pm after all players have been forced to upgrade to the new client.
    • Prestige Rune Pack - Two options to purchase this: $9.99 or 140 gems. Contains 2 Prestige and 2 Mythic Runes. Mythics are limited to Power, Health, or Initiative.
    • Armory Pack - Two options to purchase this: $9.99 or 140 gems. Contains 3 Legendary and 2 Mythic Gear. Guaranteed no duplicates within the pack (meaning you will get 5 different pieces of gear, but no guarantee you hadn't received that gear prior to this pack purchase).
    • Prestige Booster Pack - $14.99. Grants 5 Mythic Prestige Wisps (T4), 1 Prestige Rune, 1 Mythic Premium Gear, 1 Legendary Premium Gear, 1 Tome of Ascension
    - Player Stamina Max! We've increased the maximum stamina available to 12, and have accordingly raised the cost to refill stamina to 6 gems.

    - Keys, Potions, and Vouchers in store! Look for special opportunities to receive Keys, Potions, and Vouchers in the store, including through Vault activations!

    - Improved Hero Stat Cards! Stat cards for heroes have been modified and improved to present information better, and allow for more space for ability and aura descriptions.

    - Performance Improvements! Several pain points have been addressed on the back-end to improve overall game performance.

    Bug Fixes
    - Bug fix: Corrected the faction icon display on Prestige Wisps.
    - Bug fix: Added support for Android devices with a notch display.
    - Bug fix: We've implemented a progression for players to continue levelling indefinitely. The client work for this has been completed at this time, but the server work is still in progress. We anticipate this to be fully operational with our next content release (about a week).
    - Bug fix: Advisor Cullen was missing the RETALIATE specialty. This has been added.
    - Bug fix: Saboteur Marian Hawke had a discrepancy on her card in Spanish, which has been corrected.

      Can you tell us more about the prestige runes (what they actually do - all I know at this stage is they are super powerful)? I'd like to know before I evaluate whether to spend 140 gems to get a pack as well as 100 gems to unlock a slot.

        Nice, looks exciting! Does the prestige update also bring in the option to sell gear and runes en masse?

                Valid point, would welcome the thoughts of devs on this. As this favours those who are awake even more (US and Asian players) and undoes the good work the long duration mythic runes did to slightly even things out across time zones.

                I'd just settle for a 2nd PG running concurrently with different start and end time which you pick between (your decision or lack of one is locked after 24 hours after the fresh PG for the week) - due to less competition for each ladder i'd settle for reduced gem rewards.

                      People asking: to get 210 gems you'll need to spend 140 or what?
                      First of all we should know, what they are and what they look like, I guess.

                        Sure!

                        We have 5 Prestige Runes planned, with 4 ready to go tomorrow (the 5th will come later).

                        Prestige Rune of Dispel: Immunity to Power Curse for the whole squad
                        Prestige Rune of Knowledge: +350% XP for the whole squad
                        Prestige Rune of Guard: +85% Damage Resist for the whole squad
                        Prestige Rune of Stealth: Stealth for the whole squad
                        (coming later) Prestige Rune of Retaliation: 5% retaliation for the whole squad (meaning a total of up to 25% retaliation as each hero will trigger it)

                        The runes will last for 30 minutes when active (45 minutes for Knowledge), and remain in your inventory for 60 days.

                            Give it a few minutes, it's probably still propagating.

If continued accusations occur, a forum ban will result. If you believe a player to be cheating, send a PM to the Community Manager with as much detail as possible.

                              Please privately contact the Community Manager in order to submit an inquiry regarding this behavior.

                              Political Posting
                              Because political beliefs, like religion, are a personal and sensitive topic, avoid posting about politics on the forums.


                              Customer Support Inquiries
                              All inquiries regarding Customer Support should be routed through the online web portal for support. The Community Manager and Moderators are unable to assist with inquiries regarding support tickets. Posting your ticket number and requesting assistance on the forums will result in the post being deleted. Sending a Private Message to the Community Manager or Moderators about CSR Inquiries is not to be tolerated, and will be ignored.

                              Additionally, all interactions with Customer Support are considered confidential, and all issues are handled on a case-by-case basis. As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted.


                              Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games and a report to Facebook.


                              What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                              It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                              To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:


                              What happens if I break the rules?
                              At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                              Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                              For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                              Posting Suggestions
                              In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                              1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                              Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                              2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                              3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                              4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                              5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                              6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                              7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                              In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
