Ave Commanders!

 

Although our ranks swell with the addition of thousands of new recruits, we must continue to move forward, our eyes on the next era of Total War: ARENA - Open Beta!

 

Before we make the leap to Open Beta, we’re going to focus on testing higher tiers of gameplay. To enable you to reach higher tiers more quickly, we’ve decided to give a 100% bonus per battle on all rewards (XP, Silver, Free XP) for the remainder of the closed beta test. Getting to Tier 7 and beyond will be quicker than ever, so hit the battlefield and earn glory, honor and riches in half the time!

 

But we’re not quite finished yet…

 

For many players, the Alpha and Beta testing program for Total War: ARENA has been a long fought war. Veteran players wear their experience with pride; thousands of battles played, scores of victories and defeats, witness to a constantly shifting landscape. As developers and publishers, we wouldn’t be where we are today without all of your efforts and support, so we’re working on a system to reward players for all of their time spent in Alpha and Closed Beta.

 

“Rewards? How?”

 

Well, we’re not quite ready to roll out the full plan, but here’s a little sneak preview of what we’re working on:

 

Condition: Achieve 100 Victories

Rewards:

  • 50,000 Silver
  • 65,000 Free Experience
  • Unique cosmetic item (to be revealed later)
  • Title: Warrior
  • And more…

 

The rewards get progressively better the more victories you’ve attained, so your time spent in game will benefit you once we move past the final content wipe and into Open Beta.

 

Thank you for your continued support, testing, and feedback. TWA wouldn’t be the same without our community.

 

-The Total War: ARENA team

Hm, can you at least tell us what the upper end of the scale in terms of # of victories might be?

The bonus is not applicable as of now.

Hi DETrooper,

 

Unfortunately, my lips are sealed! I can't spoil the big announcement early :)

Hi wwolfvn,

 

I checked on the double rewards bonus and it was confirmed that the bonus is active; however, it does not show up as a bonus in the after battle report.

Dear Dance,

for my Beta tester rewards I would like to request the following:

1. Special camo for all my units

2. A name tag: Respect my AUTHORATA

 

Thank you in advance.

Do victories in the new Player vs AI mode count?

When I open my in game profile, it shows a different battle count, depending on which computer I am using.    So, I think its stored locally, its not a real total.  (if you have done reinstalls, or play on more than one computer.)

Since there does not appear to be a way to view your profile via the website, is there any way to see a real total?

I'm wondering.. do the Alpha and such victories count towards this? I wasn't able to play much during the Closed Beta due to school. :(

Hi guys!

 

More information about this should be coming soon™. I can say that only battles played during Closed Beta will count for this rewards program.

If there are other conditions you should tell us now because most players I talk too stick to tier 5 now because the want to get wins, this has a negative impact on the number of games played at higher tiers which you try to encourage by giving us extra 100% exp right ? Should I bring my higher tiers out ? Until we get an answer we stick to tier 5...

Hey dance210, whats with the November "Battle Report" email that states your total number of battles played to date since ones' first game (im assuming it even includes Alpha sessions) and also this number is extremely low if Alpha's are included because I have more battles than the number that was shown????? Just really weird cause I have never received a "Battle Report" before! Well hopefully for CHRISTMAS we can get the full details about the rewards and a DATE for open season............

Hi Squeaky86,

 

Right now, we do have bonus XP and Silver happening that yes, should help players grind up the lines quicker. As for any specific requirements for the Closed Beta rewards program, there isn't much I can say about it yet. You should be fine playing at tier 5 :)

Hi Ancient_Exile,

 

November was the first time that a "Battle Report" was created. Apologies if the numbers were off; we will look into why that may have happened. Barring the incorrect numbers, please do let us know if you liked/disliked any of the information in the "Battle Report" :)
