Guild League

Following the Guild League's launch on Feb 7 in global regions, we've seen enthusiastic participation. To improve the experience, we're refining the matchmaking system based on trial period data.

The goal is to allow more skilled top guilds to quickly ascend to the upper echelons of the scoreboards, fostering more thrilling matches. At the same time, for guilds aspiring to grow together, we aim to offer opportunities to continue enjoying the fun of team play and battles.

During the trial period, to better tune the matching system for a more prolonged and enjoyable experience, rankings will be reset weekly. This reset, however, means that matches between top and bottom guilds may occur more frequently. To address this, we've made temporary adjustments to the points gained or lost per match, ensuring that, over time, guilds of similar levels are more likely to be matched as the number of matches increases.

Your active participation is invaluable in shaping a better system and delivering more enjoyable content. We appreciate your support and look forward to bringing you more engaging content. Thank you.

Yzrahid Highlands

The changes to the damage and attack visuals of Seculion, however, is not just to simply lower the difficulty of the zone.
