We welcome you all to our latest Developer Letter.
NEWS AND UPDATES
After “Magic Academy” went online, many players said that they really enjoyed the time spent with the instructors and students at Carano Academy, but they also felt that the campus life was missing some really interesting extracurricular activities. We hear you! In this new version, we will introduce the most popular club activity in the Academy, the all-new Carano Chess! Come and experience it for yourself. Moreover, We have improved the game in many perspectives, including Ranked Match 2.0, Matchup Mechanism Improvements, Match Environment Improvements, Red Dots Improvements.
How to Play Carano Chess?
1. There are many rounds in Carano Chess. In each round, players challenge a random opponent or a target PVE stage.
2. As chess pieces, the heroes battle on the chessboard automatically until there is a winner or the time is up.
3. Points will be deducted from the loser accordingly. Ranking is done in real time and is based on the current score at the end of each round.
4. Player has to eliminate all other players to win. Rewards are handed out according to the ranking. The higher the ranking, the better the rewards.
After the Carano chess been available, the redeem event of chess players will start synchronously. Join the Carano Chess to get the summoning stone of chess players and recruit the cutest chess player-Bunny Butterfly.
For Ranked Match 2.0, we improved Ranked Match UI, added New System – Hero Challenge, and added New Reward System – Placement Completion Reward. For Hero Challenge, once the new season start, players will each receive a Hero Challenge Card that indicates the ranking goal that the system has set for the individual player in the new season. Players will receive the corresponding rewards for each stage once the challenge is completed. For New Reward System, players will receive a certain amount of gold once they have completed the placement matches.
AoV will be launched worldwide on the App Store and Google Play in this mid-April. The pre-registration in Google Play has been available in most countries and regions. Come and pre-registration in the AoV! Here is the link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ngame.allstar.eu.

There will be more servers after the worldwide launch, one of which will be the South Asia server. The India server players could transfer their important assets to the new server, including the resources of the heroes, skins, vouchers, golds, gems, level 3 Arcana, etc. After South Asia serve been available, we will send rewards to compensate the players who were suffering a loss during the transferring process.

BUGS AND SUGGESTIONS
Game Crash Issue
We’ve noticed that some players reported their matches crashed in the middle of the game, and they could not able to reconnect. Other players got stuck and crashed on the result page. We were trying to solve these issues. Thanks for your feedback.
In-game Skin Model Issue
We’ve noticed that some players reported even if they equipped the new skin, but they still got default skin in game. We recommended that players could check if they had fully downloaded the new skin resources. If not, players would still get default skins in game even the new skins were equipped before.
Compensation For Indian Players
We’ve noticed that some Indian players wished they could transfer more items like hero tokens, skin tokens to the new server. We are ever sorry that the items like tokens would not be included in the transfer list. However, we will make up for all the losses after the new server been available. Considerable compensation rewards are waiting for you guys! Trust us, the value of these rewards will be much more than your loss. Please notice the information on both social media and in the game. Thanks for your feedback.
Hero Selling Issue
We’ve noticed that some players reported they could not purchase the previous VP heroes like Volkath, Dirak and Elandorr by golds and vouchers. These heroes will be available for purchase in April. Please stay tuned.
Some players wished the new hero Paine could be released as soon as possible. Thanks for your feedback. The new hero will be released after ‘Light Chaser’ version updated in the next week.
