Com2Us has announced more details on their Skylanders: Ring of Heroes revamp coming soon!




Com2Us Wrote:Greetings Portal Masters from Skylanders™ Ring of Heroes.

It's been a while since our 1st-anniversary appreciation letter.
One year and four months since the launch of Skylanders™ Ring of Heroes. During this time, we’ve tried our best to make the game better by taking valuable feedback from the community. Thanks to the community’s feedback, we’ve introduced new Skylanders such as Chop Chop and Drobot, as well as adding new content like Guild Battle, Episode Dungeon, and Hall of Chaos. Other improvements include the Adventure revamp, summoning revamp, Soulstone drop adjustments, in game balances, etc.

Despite our efforts, updates throughout the service time may not have been satisfying for our Portal Masters.
We've been working around the clock to find solutions to issues that were brought up by the community to improve Skylanders™ Ring of Heroes.

At the time of delivering the 1st-anniversary appreciation letter, we’ve been working on improving gameplay by adding new contents and adjusting the current systems. However, while working on the improvements, we came to the conclusion that the game needs a dramatic revamp from top to bottom, rather than just adjustments, to deliver a high quality gameplay experience for Skylanders™ Ring of Heroes.

First things first, we’d like to deeply apologize to our Portal Masters who have been waiting to hear from us since February, 2020. We truly appreciate your patience with us. We wanted to give out the information sooner but as we were revamping the game, it took longer than we anticipated.

Today, we’re announcing the game revamp plan.
Revamp development is currently under progress, including the battle system, Skylanders Growth, Summoning, and many other systems. We’d like to briefly show a preview of these upcoming changes.


1) Summoning Skylanders
- Current: Soulstone system, where you acquire Soulstone to get Skylanders.
- New: Soulstone system will be removed. You will now get Skylanders directly from summoning
We understand the frustration of endlessly grinding to acquire Soulstone or having to keep summoning to get enough Soulstone to make Skylanders. Now you will be getting actual Skylanders instead of Soulstone and they will be ready to be in your party as soon as you get them.
Furthermore, the summoning system itself will be revamped in a way that will make it a little easier to get the Skylanders you want.

2) Skylanders Growth System
Along with the change to the summoning system, where Soulstones are going to be removed from the game, the growth system will also be revamped.
There will be new methods to Skylanders’ growth which will require specific materials that will drop from different contents throughout the revamped Skylanders™ Ring of Heroes. With the changes, growth results will be much more noticeable than before. (Furthermore, the Rune system, one of the major growth systems, will also be revamped.)

3) Contents Revamp
We’re revamping contents to provide more fun to the game through challenges that require various strategies. Along with the revamp of existing contents, new contents will be added.
Changes and new contents are focused to go along with the growth system revamp, where the more you play, the more powerful Skylanders will become. In addition, we’ve revamped the UI system to improve gameplay experience.

4) Combat System Mechanics Revamp
Combat System Mechanics will be revamped to make the gameplay more interesting with more strategic elements and by amplifying unique features of each and every Skylander. In addition to the changes, we’ve removed features that currently make the combat system monotonous.

The new revamped system with more strategic gameplay experience will provide satisfaction both current and future Portal Masters of Skylanders™ Ring of Heroes.

5) Enhancing Role of Portal Master
Currently, the role of Portal Master in the game is that of a leader of the Skylanders. However, despite the “leader” role, they were nothing more than an iconic symbol. As such, we’ve decided to enhance the role of Portal Master.
With the revamped version, the role of Portal Master will significantly increase. They will participate in the combat along with Skylanders and bring victory to the team and they can get stronger through their own growth system.

Along with the major system changes listed above, there are many other small changes in the game. Stay tuned in July 2020, for detailed preview of all the changes to come.

Lastly, we’d like to apologize again for not sharing the news sooner. We’ll put our best of best efforts to improve Skylanders™ Ring of Heroes.

Thank you Portal Masters.

Getting rid of the Soulstone system?
Good!

That system I found to be a complete turn off.
