1. Feature Additions and Adjustments

The 109 new cards from Darkness Evolved will be added to the game.

You’ll be able to watch private matches by entering the corresponding room ID.
– Invite friends to rooms
You’ll be able to invite friends to created rooms. Invited friends will receive device notifications.
– Star your favorite cards
You’ll be able to star your favorite cards on the Cards screen. Starred cards can’t accidentally be liquefied for vials.
– View opponent IDs
The ID of your opponent will be displayed when you tap Battle menu in a match.
– Tutorial rewards
Users who clear the tutorial for the first time will now receive 10 Standard card pack tickets, 3 Take Two tickets, 100 rupies, and 400 vials.
– Cards available in Take Two matches
Due to the addition of Darkness Evolved, the cards available when building a Take Two deck will be changed as follows:
– All the Darkness Evolved cards will be available.
– Certain standard and basic cards will no longer be available.
– The chances of cards being displayed will be adjusted.
– No more free tickets for new players
The free tickets (12 Standard card pack tickets and 3 Take Two tickets in total) for new players will no longer be given away after 4:00 p.m., Sep 30 (PT).
– Harvest Festival vials
The number of vials obtained for liquefying Harvest Festival will return to 120 for an animated copy and 50 for a normal one.
2. Rule Change
– Card cost adjustment
The cost of Homecoming will be increased from 5 to 7. For details, see Card Cost Adjustment in the September Update.
3. Game Mechanic Change
– Change to the mechanics related to a certain card combination
Currently, if there are five cards in your opponent’s area and a Holy Mage in play in your area, and you play a Holy Sentinel, the Holy Mage does not gain +1/+1 due to the Holy Sentinel’s countdown immediately being reduced to zero.
Because this seems counterintuitive, after the update, Holy Mage will gain +1/+1 in this situation.
The above plans may change without notice.
We appreciate your understanding and look forward to continuing to make Shadowverse an even better game experience.
