Gameplay Improvements

Our team has listened carefully to feedback from our Alpha testers and has implemented a series of strategic upgrades to improve gameplay dynamics and enhance user experience. Here are the key gameplay improvements:

  1. Combat Modifications:
  • Grid Size Reduction: The battle grid is now a more compact 2x2 layout, intensifying the strategic placement of heroes.
  • Removal of Action Points (AP): This change offers uniform skill costs, increasing strategic flexibility and decision-making speed.
  • Health and Damage Adjustments: Starting health points and damage metrics have been refined to improve gameplay clarity.
  • Skills Rework: Skills are now divided into Weapon Skills and Class Skills, simplifying understanding and diversifying strategy on the battlefield.

2. Simpler Status Effects:

  • Status effects have been streamlined to Taunt, Mark, Block, and Bleed, enhancing gameplay clarity and strategic depth.

3. Removal of Magical Damage:

  • The game now features only Elemental (Fire, Ice, Poison and Lightning) and Physical damage types to eliminate redundancy and enhance gameplay interactions.

4. Class Rework:

  • Classes have been distinctly redesigned to enhance their roles and effectiveness in battle, improving teamwork and strategic planning.

This Beta release highlights not just the hard work and dedication of our development team but also the significant enhancements we’ve made to the game’s visuals. We introduced a new visual style, giving it a fresh, eye-catching look, updated the sound effects, adding immersive audio that enhances the gameplay experience, and introduced new animations to make the game feel more dynamic and engaging. And lastly, we revamped our user interface to improve usability, making it more intuitive and user-friendly.

These improvements are as crucial as the gameplay enhancements and we’re excited to present this upgraded new chapter to you. We look forward to your contributions in making our game even better.

“We’re very proud of what the team accomplished with the Beta release! Although we have so much more ambition, it all starts with making a good game first, that’s what we sought out, and feel we were able to create. We hope our fans will agree, and wish them a lot of fun in playing the Beta of Chain of Alliance!”

- Co-founders Simon Sorgenfrei & Dennis Kirsch
