Hey all, Welcome to the Closed Beta Large-Scale Tech Test! As a reminder, the NDA is now lifted, so you are able to livestream, make videos, and share your impressions outside of the forums. Woot! Now, a few things to cover: New players: If this is your first Closed Beta test event, you will start with Closed Beta with Ranger available & 10,000 Favor (in-game currency that can be used to unlock 2 additional Champions for 24 hours). This will enable you to play Duel mode right from the start. You’ll be able to unlock additional Champions as you play. Returning players: Here is what we’ve saved and wiped from your game progress prior to this test event: Saved: Nickname, Skill Rating, Contacts (Friends/Followers), All Champions are still unlocked Wiped: Items, Currencies, Profile progression, Challenge history, Loadout preferences, and User Stats As always, please continue to provide your feedback. It’s been crucial in helping us to make adjustments with each test event. Here are the patch notes for this test event. Patch notes: NEW GAME MODE Sacrifice mode now available! Steal the soul as it spawns, deliver it to an obelisk, and defend it to score. Stand near the obelisk to steal the soul, then run it back to your base, or pass it to a teammate.
