Coming back with the second week’s update on Arena Season 0. It’s been a tough week full of battles and a great deal of engagement within the community. All of the players were trying their best to get into the TOP 500. The tickets were disappearing real quick and more users were trying to challenge each other until the moment when aggressive boosting cases were found which exploited a flawed design of the current Arena system.
The bug that caused to deactivate the gear of the players found to be tricky to determine whether the players were intentionally abusing the system or whether everything was due to a single bug.
We have banned and excluded all the players that seemed suspicious enough and will do our best to continue monitoring the season after the bug has been fixed in v1000079.
We sincerely apologize for the issue to happen, since Nine Chronicles is one of the first games to be fully built on a custom blockchain, so there are a lot of new things to be adjusted, replaced, and learnt. We are aware that bugs are an essential part of any development, and thus do our best to determine them and fix as soon as possible!
🛑 There will be few more changes with the Arena as following:
- With much consideration, we decide to remove the 3rd week’s result, and extend the Season 0 by another week , making it 41, 42, 44 and 45.
- We will consider a multiplication of the points from week 4 and 5 on the portal if needed
- Medals from week 3 will still be counted normally, same for the extra ones from week 5. It will include all of the weeks within Arena’s Season 0 ( 41 + 42 + 43 + 44 + 45).
Summary & Highlights:
There were 173,260 total battles and 3189 participants during the second week.
