Changes to Cards in the May 20 Release

Greetings, Shadowverse fans! In the May 20 (PT) release, we'll be making a change to 1 card. This is an explanation of what we're changing and why.

What's Changing

1. The stats for Korwa, Ravishing Designer will be increased.



Since Korwa, Ravishing Designer is being strengthened, it will not produce more vials when liquefied.

The Current Game Environment

We've gone over high-ranking match data for early May in the Rotation and Unlimited formats and found the game environment to be diverse, with no deck archetype in particular holding an overwhelming win or usage rate.

Also according to our data, we've found that in Rotation players going first had win rates of 51.8% (compared with 51.3% in early March) across all deck archetypes, while in Unlimited players going first had 53.5% (compared with 52.5% in early March).

From our look at the match data for Rotation, we noticed that the usage rate for Forestcraft is lower in comparison with the other classes. We've therefore decided to strengthen one card. We believe this change will further diversify the Rotation game environment.

Details

1. The stats for Korwa, Ravishing Designer will be increased.
Before: Attack 4 (evolved: 6), defense 4 (evolved: 6)
After: Attack 5 (evolved: 7), defense 5 (evolved: 7)

Take Two Runs

These changes will also be applied to all Take Two decks after maintenance, even decks that are being used in the middle of a five-match run.

Future Changes to Cards

We routinely review match data in the Shadowverse Team. In order to maintain a great game environment, we change card costs and effects and boost the number of vials that are available from liquefying cards when their strength is decreased. This includes both of our constructed formats, Rotation and Unlimited. In addition to the card changes we've made in the past and card changes targeted at Rotation, we will designate cards to have a one-card restriction or card bans for Unlimited.

Any future changes to card costs and effects will be announced in advance, and then changes will generally be made the next day. Even if there are no changes made to cards, we'll still make an announcement. If emergency changes are deemed necessary, we may make changes, specify restrictions, or specify banned cards before the scheduled update.

That's all for this round. May the cards be in your favor!
