Today we end the latest EpicDuel Tournament, The Hunters' Festival, and honor the champions with a great bounty of prizes, including rare armors, weapons, and cores! Congratulations to all 241 players who participated and enjoy your hard-fought loot! Special thanks go out to Acatriel and Bido who helped craft such an enormous pool of amazing prizes!
Attached to these new prizes are new cores. Because we didn't want to offer overpowered cores that people who did not participate in the tournament would never be able to earn, some of these cores are only aesthetically different from existing cores.
This tournament was also a significant learning experience. There are aspects of tournaments that will likely change in the future. For one, a more focused tournament, limited to a single battle mode over a shorter duration would be easier to moderate and result in less player fatigue. Another feature we have been considering to increase the excitement of tournaments in the future is a Spectator mode. Still in the planning phases, allowing players to watch any active battle would provide lots of entertainment for players who don't have time to grind winds for most of the day but still wish to cheer on their friends! There is still a wealth of possibilities on the horizon to make tournaments an amazingly rewarding experience for all!
In addition to a wealth of new combat items, this update introduces 8 new Hunter-inspired styles available now from the style-change shop!
