For this CT, we’re going to cover a few smaller, but important, subjects all together at once: Level cap increase, voice over wheel, and changes to appearance bundles.
Level Cap Increase
First off, we’re increasing the level cap for all units! Upon reaching the current max level for a unit, you’ll enter prestige levels. This will cause the level icon to visually change and turn golden. From there, each level will have the same XP requirement for each level.
And we’re not just increasing the level cap by a few. Every unit will now go up to level 1,000! Upon hitting level 1,000, the level will say “MAX” in gold.
We’ll keep monitoring player feedback for ways we can improve the overall experience, be it anything from a smaller quality of life change to a much larger update.
Voice Over Wheel
With the addition of the Emote Wheel in a past update, we’re now adding a VO wheel. This is a first pass at the system and it’ll be developed further in future updates.
For this initial release, the VO wheel will allow for all heroes and villains to say voice lines without requiring the need for an emote. Emotes will now give voice lines from the emote (such as, “Hello there.”), so you’ll automatically unlock the voice lines from any hero emotes you currently own or acquire at a future date.
Voice lines are not available separately from emotes and there is no pricing change for emotes. Should we change this at a future date, such as if we decide to make standalone voice lines, we’ll be sure to inform you all.
Earlier this year, we added a bunch of appearance bundles for our upgraded Clone Trooper legion appearances. However, when we added these bundles to the game, we did it via the crates menu. We’re now moving these bundles into the Collection menu instead. This should make them easier to find for players new and old (and should prevent accidental purchases from happening).
Moving forward, these bundles will be available only for crystals, though at a significantly discounted rate (more than they are now). Appearances in bundles will still be available to be purchased separately by either credits or crystals.
All this and more will be found in the release notes for the May update. Stay tuned for further details on this month’s update!
