Update 1.16.1 Common Test 2 Patch Notes

2 min read

Join the second Common Test of Update 1.16.1 and try out the updated Art of Strategy event, now featuring leaderboards. Battle as a Strategist or Tanker and find out how you and your tactics compare to your peers.

Event Leaderboards

There are three leaderboards within the Art of Strategy event: two leaderboards for playing as a Strategist (1v1 and 1v7 formats), and one leaderboard for playing as a Tanker. To get placed on the leaderboard, a player should fight a certain number of battles in the corresponding mode.

The position on the leaderboard will depend on the number of points earned for victories, defeats, and draws. The better the results you achieve, the higher your position on the leaderboard will be. Players who end up at the top of the respective leaderboards can consider themselves to be the most competent Strategists and true Ace Tankers!
