Love Order & Chaos Duels? You’re in the right place! We recently chatted with the Development Team: Game Producer Gallin Petrov, Lead Designer Apostol Apostolov, & Gameplay Designer Alexander Petrov, and got the skinny on the newest update, now available on iPhone, iPad, & Android. Check it out below and don’t miss the first part of our interview HERE!
How will the new cards coming in update 1 change or improve gameplay? [Gallin]: After seeing the player’s reactions to the campaign, we’ve been able to identify and resolve some balance issues that existed at release. These changes should improve current as well as new player’s gameplay experiences. As for the new cards, we wanted to add a bit more flavor, so we have introduced more neutral creatures that don’t belong to Order or Chaos. [Apostol]: The new cards will address some strategies that did not get as much attention at launch. There will also be a few “big bruisers” that are so powerful, just summoning them can turn the tide of battle.
Are there any cards that players should watch for (rare or mythic cards)? [Gallin]: Always! ☺ Yes, there are new epic cards to be found. [Apostol]: Most of the new cards in the update are top-tier, but some of them are really pushing the boundary in sheer power. I would just say, watch out for Nidhogg The Annihilator! He is the strongest Minion (with 3-way Cleave Attack) we are introducing, and his special effect is even better!
You are also adding a lot of bug fixes in this update. Could you let our fans know what you fixed and how it will improve gameplay? [Gallin]: At launch we had issues with hackers, but this new update should minimize them. As everyone knows there is nothing “unhackable,” but we really want to reduce the number of hackers in our game to keep things fair and fun for our real players. Also we have removed the irritating “sync” on the MP mode. Now the gameplay experience is very much like the single player campaign. [Apostol]: The main focus of bug fixing in Update 1 is aimed at the Multiplayer and Pillage Players asynchronous duels. Multiplayer is now much more fluid and responsive, and this will make duels faster as well. Pillage Players have been somewhat simplified and there are interface improvements in the Inbox that will make it easier to spot the most recent Revenges and Avenges from your social friends.
You also added a new reward system based on the games leaderboards. Could you tell us a little bit about how it works? How are you making sure hackers won’t benefit from it? [Gallin]: Like I mentioned before, we have tried to reduce the number of hackers as much as possible. As for the awards themselves, we are adding a system that will send rewards to players at the top of the leaderboard. [Apostol]: The first set of rewards will be given out shortly after the update goes live – but fear not, you will have time to climb up the leaderboards for the next round of awards. The rewards range from exclusive cards for the best players in the game, to Lottery tokens and Runes for thousands of players, so there are a lot of opportunities to get rewarded for your hard work. As for hackers, it’s a way of life that every successful game will have its share of issues with them. We always monitor the game data and make sure hackers are dealt with quickly before they destroy the experience for our loyal players. It is a never-ending battle against them, but we’re determined to keep fighting! [Alexander]: Well, highly ranked players will be able to get some epic rewards but there will be rewards for the rest of the players also. We implemented some more anti-hack features and also the top players will be double checked to ensure that the best rewards go to the people that deserve them.
Any hints you can give us about what we can expect in update 2? I heard that some BIG things are on the way… [Gallin] Yes, in update 2 we want to give players more control over their cards. When the time comes, we will give you more details. ☺
