Greetings Summoners! After an extensive review and careful consideration of player feedback, we have decided to put the Challenge Arena temporarily on closure starting the 18th of April, 2016 at 23:59 PST. Although the Challenge Arena will become inaccessible from the Arena menu, other similar features such as the Arena and Colosseum will still be available. This decision was made so that we can address existing issues identified within the Challenge Arena which have been affecting the player experience provided by this particular feature. These issues include the following: Long Time Investment One of the major issues identified is the amount of dedicated time required to remain competitive, especially during the first few weeks of a new season. We are currently reviewing a system that could help reduce the amount of time usually invested, while at the same time, encouraging competition amongst players. Strict Rewards System Another issue identified is that some players may still miss out on exclusive seasonal rewards, regardless of the great amount of time and effort they have invested during a particular season. We would like players to be rewarded reciprocally for all the time they have invested and for their performance during each season. We would also like to ensure that all players’ efforts, throughout every season, are taken into account as well. Lack of Squad Strategy Diversity It has come to our attention that Squad strategies have not been as diverse as we had initially hoped, and thus moving forward, we would like to steer the Challenge Arena towards a way in which players can plan and devise many different Squad formations. We want to ensure that the above, as well as other issues involved, are properly addressed so that the Challenge Arena function can return stronger than ever. And as always, we would like to thank all players for their continuous support of our Global Exclusive Features. In lieu of the temporary closure of the Challenge Arena, we will be doing the following: Rainbow Summon will opened from April 18, 0:00 PST to Apr 24 23:59 PST. Greatly increase rates up for Kurewa and Kuraginn. Please be informed that Challenge Arena Shop will be unavailable during CA closure. For the meantime, we are introducing the following items in Challenge Arena Shop until its closure on April 18 PST: Elemental Mecha God (25000 gold coins) Legend Stone (10000 silver coins) To ensure that the new changes made to the Challenge Arena provide an enhanced experience for our players, we will be releasing regular developer updates, as well as gathering player feedback through various community events. Please stay tuned to our official channels for more updates and details about the exciting new changes awaiting the Challenge Arena. We are sure that players will enjoy what we have planned for them! Thank you all for your gracious understanding and undying support.
