NEW ARENA DISTRIBUTION

Read on for updated Arena Distribution.
Show/Hide New Arena Distribution section
  • Most exclusive creatures remain available at the same arenas, except for Alanqa and Arambourgiania, which have been moved to Arenas 1 and 2 respectively, and Irritator Gen 2 (which becomes available in Geoloc while also being distributed in Battle Incubators).
  • Furthermore, we have redone the distribution of creatures-per-arena in order to favor access to certain hybrids at specific times (when disregarding Geoloc distribution). This means that a greater variety of creatures are now distributed through battle rewards.
  • When access to a given creature grants the user first-time access to a hybrid through battle rewards only, the creature is added to the list in the third column for clarity purposes.

EXPLORATION

What's new on your maps?
Show/Hide Exploration section
  • Small flying creatures are now available on the map. Can you find where and when to collect them?
  • Rebalancing of the creature spawning to provide a better, more focused experience for new players.
  • Irritator GEN 2 can now be found in the world, not just in Battle Incubators.
  • Improved balancing ensures all players have access to the ingredients required to make Rare Hybrids.
  • Not all dinosaurs are created equal. As you probably all know, some creatures like the T. rex or Blue are very high-rated, while some other like Iguanodon are less impactful. As for creatures like Lythronax… well… let’s not talk about Lythronax! In this update, we have taken into account the value of each creature to balance each place in the world. Play it and tell us what you think in the forums!

SEASONAL PVP

We're re-working our old Seasonal Tournaments.
Show/Hide Seasonal PvP section
  • The game feature that was formally known as “Seasonal Tournament” will now simply be called Seasonal PvP. Thanks to the player feedback, we’ve re-imagined this feature into something more inclusive for all. This new version of a Seasonal leaderboard will be a BETA, and will continue to be refined with the help our players! Furthermore, we are committing to bring back Tournaments as a separate Battle feature from the Seasonal PvP Leaderboard in a future update.
  • More details about the next PvP Season will follow shortly.
  • This feature will also include a tweaked matchmaking system. Details coming soon!

BATTLE BALANCING

Balancing changes coming to your Battle Arena.
Show/Hide Battle Balancing section
  • Hit and Run issue fixed
    • When a creature performed a Hit and Run ability against a Counter Attacker, and that Counter Attack took out the Hit and Runner, we had an issue where the game still auto-swapped to the next creature (even if no one is performing the "run" part of Hit and Run). Now, as designed, the "Run" part can be interrupted by a Counter Attack. If this happens, any remaining action by the Counter Attacker is played out, then the turn ends and the owner of the Hit and Runner can choose which creature they use to replace their recently taken-down creature (as usual when your opponent scores a point).
  • Attribute changes are included in release notes
    • While there are many, many risks of human error between the balancing sheet, the game’s data and the present document, care was taken to attempt to list out most of the attribute changes from 1.4x to 1.5x.
  • Follow up on pterosaur balancing (and the Twitter polling)
    • You may remember a recent Twitter poll regarding the balancing of the Pterosaurs. We have some analytics that allow us to verify a creature’s win rate when it is part of a team in PVP matches.
    • Compared to other creatures of a similar rarity, most Pterosaurs had a win rate that befitted their rarity and did not actually need to receive any substantial increases. We have still decided to give some pterosaurs some adjustments, such as much greater speed for some counter attackers. See below for more information.

Ability Updates

  • Rename
  • Vulnerability
    • Now provides +50% damage instead of the previous +25% damage.
  • Pinning Strike
    • The Swap Prevention lasts 2 turns, letting the user pull off the effect without having to time it properly on the turn before when the swap out would happen.
  • Cleanse/Healing Iconography
    • We are using the old Adrenaline Pulse Icon for the new Regeneration Ability since it is a large healing, “sub-cleanse”. We are making a new icon for Adrenaline Pulse (which is a “large cleanse, sub-healing”).
    • We hope that this communicates the following: “this one is more important for cleansing”, “that one is more important for the damage buff”, and “this one is more important for healing”.

CREATURE CHANGES

Read below for the extensive creatures re-balancing!
Show/Hide Creature Changes section

Stun Overhaul If the player wants to avoid stun lock, they can field Immune creatures, and they can even swap to creatures that still do something on the turn they come in (thanks to Swap In Abilities), so as to feel like it’s less of a “wasted turn”. From the perspective of the players, it seems that this was not enough.

We have taken a long, difficult look at creatures that had stun abilities. In essence, the main reason why stun can be irritating is when one stun is linked to another stun then linked to another stun, leaving the victim disempowered. This series of events is often associated with creatures that have stun special abilities (with a cooldown, and potentially an initial delay too). In a vacuum, that design is fine: the user can stun their opponent, then they can’t do so for a short while until the cooldown is over. The problematic situation occurs when a creature also has unlimited access to a Stunning basic attack. With a bit of luck, chaining those 75% chances with a 33% chance and finishing with a 10-20% chance can effectively create the unwanted scenario of a player whose creature (or even its swap replacement) is stun-locked for up to three turns.

We have decided to completely eradicate the three turn stun possibility by heavy-handedly removing any stunning basic attack from the game.

Furthermore, Stunning Impact becomes Greater Stunning Impact across the board, ensuring that all player’s perception of this Impact move is that “it has a high chance to stun”.

We are setting expectations here: there’s only a 25% you don’t stun/get stunned when this ability is played.

The following creatures are affected by this change:

Ability Overhaul

Superiority Strike Superiority Strike was initially meant as a way to counter the prevalent pounce meta near the initial release. The goal was that you could remove the pouncer’s damage reduction AND gain the speed advantage, all while also dealing damage.

After this change, Superiority Strike still does all that but limits its Cleansing to removing any active Damage Reducing effects (such as Distracting Impact and Pounce’s Damage Reduction effects).

You can no longer remove a Slow, Swap Prevention, Vulnerable or Damage Over Time effect using Superiority Strike.

Counter Attack Adjustments We’ve decided to re-evaluate the counter-attack costs associated with creatures based on their estimated survival ratio, resulting in an adjustment to their attribute points.

Immunity Adjustments We’ve decided to re-evaluate the Immunity costs associated with creatures based on their estimated survival ratio, resulting in an adjustment to their attribute points.

Some tanks lose access to Armor Piercing abilities. Tanks are supposed to be excellent against fast creatures, let’s keep these creature’s focus in that direction.

Other Creatures As we add more creatures to the game, we have to account for the global pool of available creatures (ex: adding more armored creatures means that bypassing armor is more useful). Lower speed creatures now have more points to compensate for their statistical likelihood to suffer damage before getting to act on their last turn.

SETTINGS/MISC

What else is new?
Show/Hide Settings/Misc section
  • The game is fully functional on iOS 12 and Android 9
  • Improved download flow.
  • Improved layout for phones with a “notch”.
  • The Message Inbox and Newscenter are now located in the “Profile/Settings” tab, which is accessed by tapping on the Level indicator (top-left).

IMPROVEMENTS & BUG FIXES

How will Update 1.5 improve your overall experience?
Show/Hide Improvements & Bug Fixes section

The update is filled with bug fixes and connection improvements to offer a more stable experience, including but not limiting to better disconnection management and GPS permission. You can now also install the game on an SD card (Android only).

We also made several gameplay improvements such as :

  • Deceleration effects were set to 90%, which made some mathematical rounding errors between Stegoceratops and Stegodeus deceleration effects. They also did not fit with the localized information, which is problematic for obvious reasons! We have set the deceleration effects to 50%, which should have resolved both issues.
  • In battle, the "bound" status effect (associated with Swap Abilities) lasted one less turn than what was written in the localization (and than what our balancing required). This has been fixed across the board so that binding now lasts as it should.

And much more.

  • You can also connect to your friends by creating a link that you share via SMS, Social, Chats, etc.
  • You can now block undesirable players from contacting you.

BATTLE

Show/Hide Battle section

"Act First" becomes "Priority" This linguistic tweak means that in-battle events can now occur before what was previously known as “Act First”. See Swap-In Abilities, below.

Defense Shattering Tweak Defense Shattering will work even against creatures that are Immune, for the purpose of removing their Shields and bypassing Armor. This mainly affects the Ankylocodon.

Auto-Swap (Strike/Impact and Run) Abilities that auto-swap will now auto-swap to the next non-defeated creature instead of a random non-defeated creature. This means that you have knowledge of what the next creature will be when you use auto-swap abilities.

Swap-In Abilities Some creatures now have access to Swap-In Abilities (or SIA for short). When you perform a SIA, you get the benefit of having swapped out your previous creature, having swapped in your new creature and performing an ability, all in a single action!

A SIA only occurs if you manually swapped. This does not occur when you initially deploy your first creature, or when you replace a dead one.

When a creature has a SIA, it performs it before any Priority Ability has the chance to act, because all swaps are done beforehand.

Note that if both players swap to creatures that perform a SIA, the fastest of the new creatures will get to act first.

Order of resolution for a battle turn becomes:

  • Perform all swaps
  • Perform all Swap-In Abilities according to speed
  • Priority Ability
  • Speed order

There is one creature family that has Swap-In Abilities as a core mechanic: Pterosauria

Other creatures were modified to feature Swap-In Abilities, these are listed in the Swap-In Abilities table, below.

Swap abilities prevent the creature from swapping for one or two turns, this is called binding (a creature is said to be “Bound”). Note that this special type of Swap Prevention occurs even if the creature is Immune, since this is self-inflicted. However, this negative effect can be cleansed through the usual means.

Be aware that effects that give a free swap (i.e. Impact and Run) can “chain” into free Swap-In Abilities!

In this case, the SIA is performed immediately after the creature enters the field. Note that if the opponent hasn’t acted yet, this SIA occurs even if the new creature is slower than the currently-present opponent.

Triggering SIA is all about the finesse, timing, and prediction of what your opponent does! Note that most creatures with SIA are so versatile that their attributes are under the average of other creatures of a similar rarity.

Speed Marker Position and other Battle Communication Improvements To improve player comprehension of changes in creature speed relationships, we have reworked the way that the speed marker is represented during the battle. As the different abilities and status effects begin or expire, the speed marker gets updated. This helps us precisely explain the cause and effect related to the question: which creature is faster? We have also taken the time to give specific iconography for:

Damage Over Time Overhaul

Foreword & Context

We have started working on Damage Over Time to be more useful (powerful) in the game.

We wish to shake up the prevalent tank meta. Combined with SIA (see above) we should obtain a more dynamic battle gameplay.

Please note that creature balancing relative to Damage Over Time is an ongoing process and is subject to change over the upcoming updates–hence why we created more Damage Over Time abilities than what is currently used in the game (see New Abilities, below).

It is intentional that a lvl 1 Suchomimus could do as much Damage over Time as a level 30 Suchomimus when the target is the same. Depending on feedback from players, we will adjust the DoT-using creatures (and potentially the ability percentages) in further updates for a fair and balanced experience.

Mechanics Damage Over Time (or DoT for short) is now calculated based on a percentage of the opponent’s maximumhealth. It has more efficiency against high Hit Point creatures, since the effect deals more damage in total. DoTs are an easy way to say “no matter what your health is, you will be defeated within X turns”.

  • DoT effects stack and are not modified by damage increases or decreases.
  • A vulnerable creature does not receive more damage from DoT.
  • DoT bypass Armor and Shields (even Invincibility). Beware!
  • As with other status effects, DoT can be removed by Cleansing the affected creature, or by swapping it out.
  • DoT do not affect Immune creatures.

Example

  • The Spinosaurus has Exploit Open Wound. It does 1x damage and inflicts DoT 0.2x for 3 turns. It also has Gashing Wound, which does DoT 0.3x for 2 turns.
  • The Apatosaurus has a maximum of 6000 HP.
  • On turn 1, the Spinosaurus uses its Exploit Open Wound on the Apatosaurus: The Apatosaurus is affected with DoT 20%. This means that it will receive 0.2x6000 = 1200 damage at the end of the turn for the next 3 turns, including this one (unless the Apatosaurus swaps).
  • On turn 2, the Spinosaurus uses its Gashing Wound. The Apatosaurus will now receive DoT 50% (3000 damage!) for the next 2 turns, since the DoT stacks.
  • Unless the Apatosaurus swaps, it is defeated by turn 3!

NEW ABILITIES












Show/Hide Abilities section

These creatures have Swap-In Abilities. Note that creatures that existed prior update 1.4 had their attributes adjusted in order to maintain balance.

CREATURE BALANCING



Show/Hide Balancing section

Overview As with previous updates, some minor attribute adjustments have been done. This occurs every update, since a creature’s abilities and attributes are calculated by being based on the global pool of available creatures. Notable adjustments are listed below.

Allosinoaurus Ability Tweaks It has Defense Shattering Strike, Armor Piercing Impact, Defense Shattering Impact and Instant Charge.

Apatosaurus Has 6000 HP and 870 damage.

Echo Has Cleansing Impact instead of Nullifying Impact.

Gallimimus Speed Buff Now at 130, it loses a bit of HP in exchange.

Gorgosuchus Replaces Adrenaline Surge with Cleansing Impact.

Majundasaurus Lockdown Strike becomes Strike.

Megalosaurus Impact becomes Ferocity Strike.

Pyrritator Speed Buff Now at 129, outclassing Magnapyritor and Indoraptor.

Sarcorixis This superhybrid has been reworked extensively. At level 26, the Sarcorixis’ attributes are now: 3840 HP, 1300 damage and 117 speed. This means that if you have a Sarcorixis against a same-level Einiasuchus, you will go first.

Spinosaurus 1st ability becomes Gashing Wound.

Spinosaurus GEN 2 1st ability becomes the new and improved Lethal Wound.

Spinotahraptor 1st ability becomes Gashing Wound.

Spinotasuchus 1st ability becomes the new and improved Lethal Wound. 2nd ability becomes Swoop. Damage value increased to 1270.

Stegoceratops Speed Nerf The speed of the Stegoceratops has been reduced to 110, in order to be below that of specific immune creatures. This gives those immune creatures more chance of a fair “counter pick” matchup. The Stegoceratops’ armor has increased to 25% to compensate.

Suchomimus Its ability becomes Gashing Wound.

Suchotator 1st ability becomes the new and improved Lethal Wound.

Tyrannosaurus Rex and the GEN2 variant get Defense Shattering Strike They lost a slight amount of attack power in exchange.

Utahsinoraptor damage increased from 1350 to 1500 Nothing was lost in exchange!

Swap-In Abilities attribute tweaks Some creatures that existed pre-update have been tweaked to integrate the Swap-In Ability mechanic. Most of the creatures that received the benefit of this mechanic were underused creatures, notably hybrid ingredients. Their attributes have been adjusted to balance the increased utility of this mechanic. See New Abilities, above.

Ability Updates With the new functionality of Damage Over Time (see Damage Over Time Overhaul above), some DoT abilities have had to be revised. We also allow Instant Charge to happen on Turn 2.

Exploit Open Wound Target is Vulnerable for 2 turns. The DoT is 0.2x for 3 turns.

Instant Charge Delay is now 1.

Lethal Wound Damage 1x. The DoT is 0.33x for 3 turns.

Wounding Strike Damage 1x. The DoT is 0.15x for 2 turns.

Wounding Impact Damage 1.5x. The DoT is 0.15x for 2 turns.

Wounding Rampage Damage 2x. The DoT is 0.15x for 2 turns.

Between now and the next update If we need to do any Battle Balancing adjustments to Swap-In Abilities and the new Damage Over Time (and their related creatures), they should occur as soon as we obtain a large enough sample of feedback on the matter. We will also be looking at the random chance in the game. Someplayers mention the feeling of unfairness related to the randomness, especially when it comes to stuns and dodge chances. Be on the lookout for upcoming polls on these subjects!

SETTINGS/MISC

  • A new [i] info button is available on Supply Drops to display the daily limit for each currency and item you can receive from them.
  • The AR button in character sheets is now highlighted for those who have never used it. Also, the game will now inform you if your device is incapable of running AR.
  • Access to the Fair Play page is available in the in Settings menu, so that you know the rules of fair play and avoid unacceptable actions.

DISCONNECTIONS & BUGS

  • We are working towards drastically minimizing connection issues, as well as reducing download times.
  • Our Support team is working on cutting down the wait-time for replies. To help, please be sure to only submit one ticket at a time when reaching out to Support.
  • This being said, please be sure to submit any encountered issues to support here: https://ludia.helpshift.com/a/jurassic-world-alive/

  • If you can win every round before using up all your retries, you’ve won the event!
  • Even if you don’t make it all the way to the end, you’ll collect rewards every time you progress. But if you win, you’ll collect the grand prize!

Location Reporting

  • The new Flag Button can be used to report a dangerous spawn point or Supply Drop on the map.

SOCIAL

BATTLE We’ve reworked the creature roster in order to create a globally balanced experience and to avoid power creep.

Show/Hide Battle section

Hybrid Rebalancing This update economically rebalances the metascore of the hybrids and superhybrids in the game according to the difficulty of obtaining their component elements. A Legendary that is created by performing a fusion between a Common and an Epic is not worth the same as a Legendary that is created by performing a fusion between two Epics. This is reflected in the changes to abilities and attributes as seen below.

Attribute Reallocation The speed value of every creature has been better accounted for in the game’s balancing, which means we had to reallocate attributes for most if not all creatures for this update. Instead of being part of the creature’s pool of “attribute points,” the balancing of speed is done for a given creature’s every ability by factoring in each ability’s speed, including abilities that Act First.

Raptor Duelists A few notable changes provide counters to the prevalent “raptor meta”. Some creatures have been redesigned or tweaked accordingly. Note that raptors are functionally unchanged: other creatures are now better counters against them.

The following Hadrosaur family creatures gained Superiority Strike: Edmontosaurus, Iguanodon, Ouranosaurus, Parasaurolophus, Tenontosaurus and Tragodistis. They had to lose a hefty amount of speed to compensate for this powerful ability. This brings them in line with their new functionality niche as Raptor Duelists. They achieve this by combining a self-cleanse (potentially removing Pounce’s damage reducing effect) while also reducing the opponent’s speed for one turn. Stegosauridae (Stegosaurus, Wuerhosaurus, Tuojiangosaurus, Kentrosaurus, Stegodeus) and the new Brachiosauridae (Brachiosaurus and Giraffatitan) also possess the same Superiority Strike.

Brachiosaurus and Giraffatitan also have a new ability: Surprise Bellow. See Ability Updates (below) for more information.

Last but not least, the following Sauropods replaced their Basic Attacks with Lockdown Strike: Apatosaurus, Amargasaurus, Argentinosaurus, Gigaspikasaur and Nodopatosaurus. This equips these creatures with a way to prevent the common tactic of Pounce-and-Swap.

New Counter Attackers The following creatures gained special versions of Counter Attack (where the damage multiplier of the counter attack is less than 1x):

Decelerating Impact This ability is now more in line with Thagomizer: the speed reduction is 50% for 2 turns. However, the cooldown is only 1 turn!

Remove Positive Effect Removing Positive Effects now works on creatures that are Immune. Example: you can remove an Indominus Rex’s Cloak, but you still can’t stun her! We want players to have control and completely avoid the random 50% Dodge Chance if they simply decide to field creatures with Nullification effects.

Dodge A dodge is a random chance that an attack’s direct damage is avoided entirely, similar to Cloak’s dodge chance. Note that other effects of the attack that was dodged (such as Stuns, Speed Reduction and Nullifications) still apply.

A dodge can be removed by Removing Positive Effects (example: Nullifying Strike).

Matchmaking Duration In order to have the most chances to be matched with a level-appropriate opponent, we have increased the Opponent Search durations.

Since there are few players that have reached the end-game, this means that we have to search for a longer amount of time before having a chance to be matched. For an optimized experience, please refrain from canceling the match search.

Max search duration of 30s Fallen Kingdom, Mt. Sibo, S. S. Arcadia, Nublar Jungle

Max search duration of 60s Badlands, Lockdown

Max search duration of 120s Sorna Marshes, Jurassic Ruins

Arena Battle Rewards Exclusive creatures are unchanged. However, battle creature allocation has been updated per arena.

  1. Fallen Kingdom: Velociraptor, Stegosaurus, Amargasaurus, Ankylosaurus
  2. Mt. Sibo: Ophiacodon, Utahraptor, Koolasuchus Gen 2, Secodontosaurus
  3. S.S. Arcadia: Ankylosaurus Gen 2, Dimetrodon, Delta, Kentrosaurus
  4. Nublar Jungle: Triceratops Gen 2, Triceratops , Charlie, Rajasaurus
  5. Badlands: Parasaurolophus, Postosuchus, Echo, Monolophosaurus
  6. Lockdown: Tanycolagreus, Megalosaurus, Pyroraptor
  7. Sorna Marshes: Allosaurus, Giraffatitan, Tyrannosaurus rex
  8. Jurassic Ruins [NEW]: Euoplocephalus, Tuojiangosaurus, Sinoceratops, Baryonyx

Note: Battle incubators now award Exclusive Creatures without replacing the regular incubator reward slots: this means a steadier income of Exclusive Creature DNA!

  • Small Incubator (15min) focus on Rare Exclusives
  • Standard incubator (3h) focus on Common Exclusives (starting at Arena 2)
  • Large incubator (8h) focus on Epic Exclusives (Starting at Arena 3)

  • These effects now expire at the end of the creature’s action, resulting in better communication to both players. Once the creature does its thing, the Visual Effect ends (and so does the bonus).
  • This affects abilities such as Ferocious Strike and Ready to Crush.

New Ability: Evasive Stance

New Ability: Evasive Strike

New Ability: Surprise Bellow

  • Act First
  • Shield 50% for 1 turn
  • Reduce Target Speed 50% for 2 turns
  • Delay 0
  • Cooldown 2
  • Creatures affected: Brachiosaur, Giraffatitan

New Ability: Superiority Strike

SETTINGS

  • An option to improve the Battery life on older devices is available.
  • To prevent impacting your data plan, Supply Drops no longer have ads, however, rewards have been increased to compensate for this. Nevertheless, you can still choose to watch ad on Special Event Supply Drops to respin and collect more rewards.
  • AND… minor text fixes.
