Dev Diaries: Berserk

Discover What The Dev Team’s Been Up To!

V2.21.5

V2.21.5 was released to Beta Testers on 10/10/2022, introducing a bunch of important changes to Berserk. Most notably, the New Beginnings card set (with 24 never-seen-before cards!) was released to all Beta Testers ahead of Season 3.

  • Blacklisted cards from Season 2 were fixed and reintroduced to the game.
  • In the past, the HP and attack score of a card were sometimes overlapped by Vulcanite frame. This will no longer occur.
  • Multiple error message issues were rectified (400, 500 & 503).
  • We also fixed a bug where «No Internet» and «Inactive Session» messages were appearing at the wrong time
  • A memory issue that appeared on older mobile devices after multiple reconnect attempts was also fixed.
  • We squashed a bug where RicardoBot was being allowed up to 8 cards on the table!
  • An issue where some card effects weren’t working properly when there was a VFX loading error was corrected.
  • We also rectified an issue where the Surrender button was not active in some cases.

V3.0.6

Beta Testers were given access to V3.0.6 on 04/11/22. Like the update before it, some important gameplay changes were added to the game.

  • A complete rebuild of the game engine. massively improving performance on weaker devices or in heavy board states
  • Brand new server architecture.
  • All interactions now fully moved from Client Side to Server Side.
  • Improved security features, stability, game synchronisation and action delays.
  • Remaining blacklisted New Beginnings Cards were also enabled.

V3.1.1

V3.1.1 rolled out on 22/11/22 to our Beta Testers. This release only included one significant gameplay change, where the card draw rate was adjusted from 1 per turn to 2 per turn from Turn 7 onwards — changing the tempo of the late game.

  • Fixing the Vulcanite ability, so that it doesn’t appear to be activatable even after the hero has been silenced.
  • Fixing scenarios that resulted in players being locked into a false pre-start match with no escape.
  • Ensuring that button presses and turn timer get muted as well when the volume slider is set to 0.
  • Making sure certain cards don’t overlap when played by the AI.
  • Stopping some cards from falling “behind” the cards in hand when deployed.
  • Making sure that the Good Game button notifies the opponent more consistently.

V3.1.3

Released on 04/12/22, this version included some tweaks to previous gameplay updates applied to the beta version. Big thank you to the Beta Testers who provided feedback on these changes!

  • Sunfire Strike will no no longer destroy itself when played.
  • A disconnect issue that would kick players out fully, and require a re-login was corrected.
  • We continued work to prevent scenarios that result in a player being locked into a false pre-start match with no escape (we think we’ve got all of them now…)
  • We fixed an issue where “Cannot attack Stealth/immune/taunt” was appearing on every attack, regardless of actual target, or who controlled the relevant card.
  • We also corrected a UI issue where sometimes tooltip text would remain on the screen for the remainder of the match.

V3.1.4

V3.1.4 is our most recent release, which went live on 09/12/22 to all platforms! This applied all of our hard work from previous releases to the live version of the game. We hope you’ve been enjoying it.
