  • We are also investigating how to address other issues, such as the issues regarding moves that tend to miss an opponent inadvertently .
  • Equipment Damage Settings of “Crown Princess Series” are not set.
  • Grøh’s fighting style/Kilik’s fighting style: equipment of an original character created with these fighting styles gets damaged when performing a soul charge.

  • RANKED MATCH: we are going to reduce the amount of RP the higher ranked players can get from winning a match with the lower ranked players.
  • RANKED MATCH: we are going to fix an issue that the screen sometimes freezes when a player hits OPTION button repeatedly at the end of a following match after their rank either moved up or down.
