Welcome to June 20, 2022 maintenance patch,

This is a big update note so please take your time reading and studying its contents. We hope you like how we simplify describing these changes. At this point, we are recommending everyone to re-install your old bRO files to 2022 full installer release. Based on several feedback from players, there is some significant performance difference. Go to Downloads page in our website to obtain updated full installer file.

I tried adding more content in this patch but we overdid ourselves this time so there will be more metagame updates in the following patch soon.

WAR OF EMPERIUM METAGAMING
Instead of listing each change by category, I think it's better to list them based on direct impact of a gameplay aspect. In this patch, we have implemented several changes to elevate viability of magic-dealing roles. There are sustain changes applied as well to increase strategic diversity. There are also other changes applied due to the same reason. WE ALSO ADDED NEW SKILLS!

OK, thank you for the immediate feedback so far.

There will be a hotfix patch that will happen as soon as possible.
I'll reply to your Discord messages later on as I'm heading to bedtime in my timezone.

Thanks again,

Per feedback, the following changes are applied. (Please repatch client if item descriptions in-game still unchanged)
  • Tendrillion Card: Reduces all incoming magical damage by 45% at the cost of doubling SP consumption.
  • Hardrock Mammoth Card: Reduces all incoming physical damage by 15%. Removed double SP reduction penalty.
In addition, reduced War Badge reward mechanic is removed when there are 4-5 participating players.
Basically, minimum required players to start Battlegrounds is 4 players.
