This is PD Jin from KING’s RAID.
Today, we will be replying back to the complaints and the feedback our players have been sending us continuously through different communication channels. Also, we will be providing more details regarding the feedback we have received through the Developer’s Note we have posted on December 16th.
– Improvements to Guild Conquest Velkazar Lagging/Crashing Issues
– Unequal Hero Costume Updates
– Hero Balance Adjustments
– Auction House System
– Power of the 12 Constellations
– Limited Sale for Costumes & Customization Parts
– 2~4 Star Heroes Appearances from Season 1
1. Improvements to Guild Conquest Velkazar Lagging/Crashing Issues
First of all, we’d like to apologize for not being able to fix this issue for a long period of time.
We will be working harder to fix the inconveniences of our players. We are planning to adjust excessive rendering and battle logics of the game. If possible, we would like to fix the issue accurately at once, however, we will be making improvements to this issue continuously and we will try to communicate about the fixes throughout time.
Firstly, we will be working on the updates quickly as we have encountered a technical issue during the optimization process of our game. Last June, we have worked on the updates to nullify the battles when crashing issues occurred during the Guild Conquest content. However, we are aware that the content still needs additional updates. We will also be working to fix similar inconveniences as soon as possible.
Furthermore, we will make sure to make improvements to the lagging/crashing issues, not only for the Guild Conquest content, but for the overall contents.
The Guild Conquest has been a content that has been added long ago, and there were no big updates besides the rewards. Based on our experiences and knowledge, we are planning to update a new Guild Conquest content with better improvements, and most importantly, fun. We will be revealing more information regarding the content as soon as we have detailed plans for it.
2. Unequal Hero Costume Updates
We are aware that we have many Heroes that we haven’t been updating their Costumes for a long time. We are also aware that our players have been pointing us about this continuously.
As we proceed with the overall balance adjustments of our Heroes, there will be balance adjustments for Heroes that are not used that much compared to the popular Heroes. If we encounter a Hero that has not received a Costume update for a long time, we will make sure to release a new Costume along with the balance adjustments of the Hero.
Additionally, we will be considering about releasing Legend Costumes for unpopular Heroes with less attractive appearances.
3. Hero Balance Adjustments
As we have announced through our previous Developer’s Note, we will not release OP Heroes anymore from now on. We have got to the conclusion that continuous updates of OP Heroes are destroying the current battle system of the game. As a result, we are aiming to implement a system in which all Heroes can be used with similar performances. There will be Heroes that may outstand depending on the content, but there will be no Heroes that will outstand in all contents.
According to what we mentioned above, we are planning to make the proper balance adjustments to the Heroes. At the moment, only a few Heroes are being used in the PvE contents. First of all, we will be implementing improvements that can allow players use different dealers within the contents and we will also be improving the roles for each of the classes. As a result, we are aiming for the improvements of the overall balance of the Heroes. Additionally, we will be improving the Heroes to make them usable widely in the arena content.
To make the right improvements to the game, we will not be improving each of the Heroes, but instead we will fix the balance by fixing the battle system. If we really need to nerf the Heroes, that will be used as one of our last methods. We will make sure to provide more details about the fixes of the battle system through our next Developer’s Note.
4. Concerns regarding the Security & Creation of Multiple Accounts within the Auction House System
We’ve been checking the concerns of our players regarding the new Auction House system.
We will make sure to build a system that will keep away all security concerns from our players. Technology is continuously advancing, and different systems are being developed. There may be ways such as implementing device authentication or creating an exclusive KING’s RAID OTP. Other than the methods we have mentioned, we will be doing our best to provide the best solutions. We will also make to build up a stable system that will not bring up concerns regarding the creation of multiple accounts.
One of the biggest concerns from our players have been the issues with abusive bots. These bots cannot be stopped or blocked perfectly. However, we will be implementing various control systems that will help us prevent these from abusing the game. Currently, different games are using a wide variety of control systems that help them stop these from taking over the game. We will be looking to adapt some of the useful systems, and we will continue to look for our own solution.
The situation in which the seller may break down the game’s currency value or the economic system is one of the issues that may occur within the Auction House system. In order to deal with this issue, we will be adding more limits to the seller, and on the other hand, there won’t be any big limitations for the buyers.
5. Power of the 12 Constellations
Until now, a stronger Gear system and OP Heroes have been added.
As stronger Gear and Heroes were introduced to KING’s RAID, we believe that these factors have been destroying the enjoyment and the consistency of the game. From now on, we’re not planning to take this road anymore.
The Power of the 12 Constellations, a system which will be introduced through Season 2, will have a different usage than the system of the Soul Weapons from Season 1. During Season 2, Soul Weapons will be stronger and effective in some of the contents, and at the same time, the Power of the 12 Constellations will be stronger in other contents.
This doesn’t mean that the Power of the 12 Constellations will be weaker than Soul Weapons. We are aiming to bring the balance between these 2 systems. As we have mentioned several times, we are not aiming for numerical strength, but diversity among the contents.
6. Limited Sale for Costumes & Customization Parts
Looking at the individual sales for each of the Costumes & Customization Parts (we will be mentioning both as Costumes), the sales weren’t high enough compared to the total number of players in KING’s RAID. The reason may be due to the design of the Costumes, however, we think that these low sales have a deep connection with the Heroes that are owned by the players. The number of limited Costumes we intend to supply will be around the similar number of our current sales of Costumes or slightly higher. Thus, we believe that we will be providing a sufficient supply of Costumes for our players. We will be changing the total number of Costumes little by little depending on the number of purchases we receive.
Instead of providing Costumes that can be purchased at any period of time, we are hoping to create the value of preciousness for those who have purchased the Costumes. However, that doesn’t mean we will be selling them through a RNG Costume system (gacha). As always, the Costumes will be sold through the Shop.
Costumes will have a trading value through the Auction House System. Like in reality, we sell old clothes we don’t use anymore through the garage sale. Similarly, old Costumes will be available for sale through trading. If the number of Costumes is not limited, the price of the Costumes sold in the Auction House system will always be shown at a lower cost. However, Costumes that are sold in limited numbers have the value of rareness, which will allow the Costumes to maintain their value during the trading process. We also believe that we will be able to prevent issues such as hoarding as similar Costumes cannot be owned more than once.
7. 2~4 Star Heroes Appearances from Season 1 (Will the 2~4 Star Hero Appearances from Season 1 remain undeleted from KING’s RAID?)
Yes, they won’t be deleted from the game. Heroes with 2 ~ 4 Star appearances from Season will not be deleted and they will remain as Costumes within the game.
This Developer’s Note has become a quite long one. We do want to listen to your suggestions and feedback continuously. We hope to listen more about our players through our community channels, and our latest Discord channel we have opened not long ago.
Thank you very much for your love and support.
Wish you a Merry Christmas!
