Update 02-2021

By  Kitty · Official · 02/2021Back to releases

Hello Stormbounders! A new version of Stormbound is coming early February, bringing balance changes (and a well-deserved confusion buff), custom avatars, a cheap Brawl and some exclusive offers as usual!

Balance changes

This release, like any other, brings some balance changes.

When played bordering on the tile in front of your temple structure or your base, spawn 4/5/6/7/8 strength Knights on all tiles in the same row of its bordering tiles

New card

On February 8th, a new temple card will be introduced: the Temple of Heart. Look how pretty it is! 💖

Player profiles

A brand new feature is coming with this release: player profiles. Every player will be able to select a portrait amongst a predefined collection as well as a preferred faction, both of which will show up in the friends list.

As a result, the Fortress Level screen is being rebranded “Player Profile”, suggesting there will be more content to come, eventually fleshing out advanced player profiles!

Cheapened Brawl

Similar to what happened in November, the Brawl starting on February 11th (and only that one) is going to be cheaper. All fight will cost two thirds of their original price.

FAQ

When is the update going to be released?

The balance changes and the player profiles will be effective with the season reset on February 1st. The new card will be available from February 8th. The exclusive offers will be available between February 8th and February 14th (end of day).

Will we ever have fully custom avatars?

Maybe, but unlikely. Image analysis and moderation to make sure all uploaded content is safe and within the accepted guidelines is really difficult. Most likely, we will extend the predefined collection with more options in the future.
