The Illusion Battlefield was previously a mystical land where two Alliances would fight each other for the great treasures of Hornheim. With Patch 2.0, however, the Illusion Battlefield will become the staging grounds for the Prime League, in which Alliances will battle for the title of Supreme Alliance. Alliances with grand ambitions must endure battle after battle in the Illusion Battlefield in order to become the Supreme Alliance of Norheim. Furthermore, the Team Preset system now includes the capability to preset passive skills and artifacts. This will make strategizing more convenient. We have also once again included several optimizations that improve the game experience in many ways. Continue reading for all the details about this update, so you can be ready for the new challenges that await you.
