Check out the not-so-naughty changelog below:

  • There is a new leader board for single tournament scores
  • Players can see all Players’ Tournament Tier in the scoreboard during a match. This will happen only if the player is ranked in the Tournament
  • Spending a tournament ticket increases your treasure drop chances for that match. This also makes rare treasures more likely to drop.

  • Tournament formula change:

Winning

Points = [1000 + (100*kills) + (25*assists) – (80*deaths)] * [1.2-(party size*0.2)] 

Minimum = 200, Max = 6000
