Update Patch 2.04 Changelist
BEGINNER BOOST CAMPAIGN
During the Beginner Boost Campaign, players completing any Missions from the VR Ninjutsu Arena will receive double Training Points and Ryo! Use this opportunity to clear missions and power up your original Ninja!
The Beginner Boost Campaign will run from 09 May, 2019 @ 09:00 UTC+8 until 30 May, 2019 @ 05:00 UTC+8.*
*Times and dates may change without prior notice.
New “Honorary Titles” have been added to the game. Honorary Titles will be given out in the future as special rewards for future events and other activities. Stay tuned for additional information!
Both Honorary Titles and Titles are displayed on the lobby matchmaking and in-game “Rival Camera” screens
Be on the lookout for these new unique and special ways to show off your character!
BEGINNER MATCH ADJUSTMENTS
All Beginner Matches will now have a Training Point Boost automatically applied permanently. New players can now earn points and unlock their favorite Ninjutsu and items from VR Masters faster!
NEW! TEAM ICONS
The UI now displays an icon showing which players are in a party with other players.
You can check this icon on the lobby matchmaking screen, the in-game player list screen, and the match results screen.
NEW! ABANDON MISSION (SOLO MISSIONS ONLY)
Solo players can now choose to abandon a mission through the pause menu mid-game and return to the lobby.
This menu is only available for single player missions and cannot be accessed in multiplayer.
The matchmaking algorithm has been adjusted to help reduce the gap in levels between teams that occasionally occurred.
The matchmaking method will also change with this patch. Previously, players were placed into open rooms one by one. Starting from this update, the matchmaking system will wait for players and place them into a room all at once. We expect the wait times to get into a match will be roughly the same as the previous method.
We are always working on improving the quality of matchmaking and will continue to monitor the situation.
NEW TUTORIAL MISSION (ENTRANCE EXAM)
A new tutorial mission “Entrance Exam” has been added to the game. This tutorial can be accessed and played at any time from the VR Ninjutsu Arena.
OLD TUTORIAL SKIP SUPPORT
Players can elect to skip the original tutorial mission by abandoning it from the in-game pause menu.
