Patch Notes 188.8.131.52.1
New Hero: #Layla
The world Layla lives in is full of a force called Malefic Energy, a savage and unruly energy that causes all living things that come in contact with it to lose their reason and become rabidly ferocious. This energy had all but wiped out her world, until one day Layla's father discovered a way to use a gun forged from magic iron from deep within the earth to absorb and control Malefic Energy. Unfortunately, he absorbed too much energy during the forging process and died, but not before giving the completed gun to Layla in the hopes that she would halt the spread of Malefic Energy.

When Ranked Games are first released, each season will last 2 weeks. When the season is over, Ranked Game results will be tallied, and all players who took part in Ranked Games will receive rewards based on the highest tier they reached that season.
When players reach Level 6, Ranked Games will be unlocked. Players who own 5 or more heroes will be able to take part. The system will automatically match players up against opponents of equal strength.
There are 6 tiers in all: #Warrior, #Elite, #Master, #Grand Master, #Epic, and #Legend. When players win or lose in ranked games, they will also get or lose stars. When a player has full stars for their current tier, they will be promoted to the next tier upon their next victory. Likewise, if a player has no stars, the next time he or she loses will result in a demotion. Stars will not be taken away from players in Warrior tier.
After entering Legend tier, the system will run a check once every 7 days. If the player has not taken part in a ranked game within 7 days, then a star will be taken away.
Play Ranked Games with Friends
You can play ranked games with friends, but you cannot invite a friend who is more than 2 tiers away from you.
