Dev Diary: A Contest Evolved

edited July 2020 in General Discussion

We're coming to the end of our series of 4 Dev Diaries on the Future of the Contest, and we're ready to go out with a bang! Get ready for a glimpse into the far future of The Contest of Champions!

This Dev Diary not only covers some improvements to Arenas and Incursions, but will also give you a first look at some features and systems that are still in their Prototyping and early design phase. As a reminder, all information in our Dev Diaries is subject to change as they develop further, but that is especially true of this one!

You're gonna have a lot of questions about some of the features that are far in the future, but we're not going to have many answers yet. That doesn't mean you shouldn't ask or discuss them, just that you might not get a response from us on them.

So, without further adieu, read about the future in our latest post, A Contest Evolved!

Hey Summoners, we're hearing a lot of questions about the lack of an update on Masteries in the Roadmap. This is intentional, but we haven't forgotten about it.

As some of you had brought up, we had plans for a Mastery revamp featured in one of Dorky Diggedy Dave's videos earlier in the year. Unfortunately, while we had it planned, it didn't pass one of our design gates, preventing it from going any further.

Like you, we want to update Masteries and while it seems simple on the surface there are a lot of challenges in changing something that affects every Champion and fight in the game. BUT, we are working on it and we'll get a proper Dev Diary out about it when the time is right. We know it's important to you, as it is to us, that's why we want to get it right and we're looking forward to sharing more on that soon!

    Tag teams sound a bit like Injustice: GAU to me, but it got me interested.

    Reminds me of the old X-Men/Marvel vs Street Fighter/Capcom games.

    All these changes are looking great, but my most anticipated change, and said to be coming in the interview with Dorky Dave, is multiple mastery builds that we could toggle through. Are these not happening any more?

    I'm very curious about this as well. Really hoping to see this happen.

    However, I am very excited about all the announcements and the future of the game. Thanks for all the updates!

    Some pretty good stuff. Unless I missed it somehow, I see that arena rank rewards will improve, but will milestones rewards improve as well?

    The 3* arena change is the best thing out of all of these changes in my opinion.

    Looks really cool. But as everyone said like the sunday arena has the the uncollected shard crystals. Let’s get a system like that where we replace the PHC for uncollected and above. Maybe grandmaster shards for milestones, or do first 3 milestones the shard crystals and then the final milestones grandmaster shards or just full crystals.

    Looks really cool though.

    Now on to bigger fish can’t wait to get dates for everyone from dev diary to today diary. All this is great but can’t wait for actual dates. Excited about the new raid bosses, the new solo events (22hr), the sig stone increase.

    Thanks all! I know this took a lot of time to put in writing and even longer to be able to put in place.
