http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=303100496 and overhauled animations and action cams!
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=303098625

The worldmap takes a break and makes place for an intuitive main menu.

We also overhauled the League Tier system and introduced Subtiers to all tiers but Æthermasters.

Other noteworthy updates: Brand new main missions and the introduction of daily missions, and a completely new tutorial.

To celebrate this major Milestone, we slashed all the prices in the game MASSIVELY!

New Features:
  • Champion and ship skins are available now. (Except for Sharina, Hammer, Whale and Bombshell) Each skin costs 89 Æther Coins.
  • New champion: HAMMER.
  • New champion: Skyblade. A good mid-range offensive character with a whirlwind attack. Skyblade belongs to the faction Aether Junkies, has 6 HP and does 2 DMG in extended melee range.
    - Her Super Skill deals 2 damage to everyone around her and her Ultimate Skill sacrifices an ally champion and does 3 DMG to everyone in the sacrificed champ's melee range.
  • New champion: Taeyang is a new class of Champions. He possesses the passive bonus "hatred against Air Pirates", has 7 HP and deals 2 base DMG (+1 against Air Pirates).
    - Using his Super Skill, Taeyang charges towards his target and deals 2 DMG (+1 against Air Pirates).
    - His Ultimate Skill attack deals 1 damage to all enemies and triggers an explosion on all enemy Air Pirates hitting them and all champions in their melee range for +2 extra damage.
  • New floating texts for better visualisation of when champions/ships take damage and gain aether (and hatred damage).
    Player names and chat messages will be checked for nasty words
  • Complete rework of the main menu (worldmap has been removed)
  • Improved loadout, shop and achievement (badges) page
  • Achievement rewards now have to be claimed in the badges section
  • Daily missions are available to earn some extra Shillings

    - He will congratulate the player upon finishing a quest
    - He will welcome the player back to the game upon login
    - He will inform the player when a match has been found or player has been challenged
  • Two new master images have been added for all players right out of the gate. These do not need to be purchased
  • Every five matches the player gets a rare shell pack of his choosing
  • Two new shell packs giving the player either 10 rare shells or 10 shells with a chance for some of them being rare
  • New master images: one for every champion. Beat 100 enemies with a specific champion and you unlock a his/her master image.
  • Improved Æther gain effects. Now you can see more easily who gained Æther and why.
  • League tiers and progression has been re-worked; gaining or losing a tier or sub-tier is now set to defined consecutive wins or losses (2/3/4/5) and only Æther-Masters will gain or lose League-points(wins).
  • Badges have been re-organized and claiming them can be tracked in an overview
  • The number of champions rotating as trial characters has been adjusted in correspondence to already owned champions
    - owning no champion - 3 trial champions in rotation
    - owning one champion - 2 trial champions in rotation
    - owning two or more champions - one trial champions in rotation
  • Practice matches have been re-worked:
    - difficulty has been decreased slightly
    - any won match will now put you in the next AI level (represented by the stars over the 'Valerian' portrait on the main screen)

“A mix of MOBA ideas and tactical RPG gameplay, Aerena is a cool game that has the potential to be a hit with fans of both strategy and competitive multiplayer games.”
8/10 – Gaming Nexus

“Ærena is a uniquely accessible and thought-provoking take on multiplayer battles that could easily turn the MOBA scene on its head. And above all, it is damn fun.”
9/10 – GameZone

“Ærena's visuals are a delight to see. Menus and loading screens are filled with entertaining artwork that adds to the vast steampunk world that Cliffhanger Productions has built, especially each champion’s avatar portrait along with their backstories. [...]offering a different experience to those looking for something that stands out within the growing genre of battle arenas. Ærena: Clash of Champions is definitely worth checking out”
4.5/5 – OnRPG

1:1 턴기반 전략게임입니다. 플레이어당 최대 3명의 챔피언들이 나와서 서로 전투하고, 자신의 배에 에너지가차면 특수스킬을 사용하며 경쟁하며 이배의 체력이 0이되면 승부가 결정됩니다. 챔피언종류는 글쓰는시점을 기준으로 10명가량있으며 배종류는 약 6개정도 있는거 같더군요.(약간 적은감이..ㅠㅠ) 각챔피언은 에너지차면 사용할 수 있는 특색있는 스킬2종을 사용합니다. 레벨이 높아진다고 배가좋아지거나, 챔피언들이 강해지는것이 아니라서 챔피언의 배치와 적절한 스킬활용에 따라 승부가 결정되어 누구나 평등하게 매치할 수 있는점이 마음에 드네요. 매치는 잘잡히는 편이지만 2:2등 팀원과 함께하는 매치가없어서 약간 아쉽습니다. 그래픽은 딱 적정한 수준이고, 챔피언들 묘사는 꽤 좋습니다. 무엇보다 현질유도가 거의없는 무료게임인점이 메리트가 있네요. 턴제전략게임을 좋아하신다면 한번쯤 해보시는것도 괜찮을듯합니다. 추천합니다!

Ærena: Clash of Champions isn't your standard turn-based tactical game. Ærena places you directly into the battle for Æther--there's no slow start--things go BANG and BOOM right from the beginning!

If you can, imagine a system similar to League of Legends, where you earn points and use those points to purchase new champions. This is the system employed by Ærena and it does a good job of keeping players engaged.

Not only is the in-game currency/point system similar to League of Legends, but the champions have a similar feel, which is awesome because in most turn-based tactical games you don't command CHAMPIONS but rather generic units. In Ærena, the champions have beautiful, vibrant rendering and their abilities are dynamic unlike the generic abilities units have in most turn-based tactical games.

Ærena is a 100% PvP game, which I love! You can practice with the AI but that gets old, its human competition that drives this game! Similar to other ELO/RP based PvP games, you can rank up from Bronze to Æther Master. The average match takes about 10-15 minutes so this game will not consume your life unless you choose.

Since I purchased this game (Alpha) I've seen numerous updates. The devs are constantly adding new content and they stay in close contact with the player-base. Recently, players voted on a Top-10 list of 'Wanted Features.' The devs are now working diligently to apply as many of the requested features as possible.

Recently a new patch was released. As with most games, a new patch usually means a couple small problems, from which this game is not immune. However, the devs worked hard and fast to eliminate those problems so the community could once again enjoy the game. In fact, my account glitched out after the last patch and one of the devs personally responded to my request for help. He logged into the game and fixed my problem! Talk about service--this is a FTP game!

I'm not sure what more I can say to entice you to play other than, "If you don't try Ærena: Clash of Champions, you're missing a diamond in the rough" (although this game is beautifully polished).

Come find me in the Ærena. I'm on my way to Æther Master. I'll see you there!

Backlog Clearing #5

I've been a huge fan of turn-based games, AO (Atlantica Online) being one of the most awesome turn-based game ever and was really looking forward to trying this game out few months ago.

However when I played it for abit, I could not understand the gameplay well, things seems cluttered and I was lost (also lazy to learn :tank:). Gave up pretty quickly as the game wasn't able to catch my interest.

------However.. I tried it again recently :)

WOW!! I'm really impressed with the new patch. It really dumb-things down so that I understand it without the need to study in-depth. The simple yet interactive tutorial/quest taught me how to play almost immediately. I will definitely be playing more of this game and would buy more copies when its bundled again to give to more peeps :)

Pros: Easy to get into, fun strategic turn-based combat system. Incredible Devs and Support which responds quickly to feedback and other suggestions.

Cons: Need to purchase everything to unlock now!

A simple, easy to learn and fun game. Albeit still in beta, and with bugs, it has a lot of potential. I really like it. Now, if only it'd have item drops that I could sell on the market... ;D
