WHAT'S NEW IN THIS BUILD

-Fixed default sorting order in roster. The default sorting order is ‘rarity’.
-Fixed an issue with the animation for collecting prestige points when pressing the "Collect" button multiple times in the inbox
-Fixed minor UI issues
Build 2.7.36651 Beta update 7 July 2016Edit
Players will now earn Prestige Points each day they play, and can earn extra points by purchasing coins. As players earn Prestige Points, their Prestige Rank will go up, unlocking a variety of rewards, including: timer speedups, Supply Points, Salvage tokens, and Recruits & Reward tokens.
Players will also receive exclusive characters, weapons and gear as their Prestige rank increases!
Players may now use Salvage tokens to instantly collect a stage’s drop rewards.
Players must first complete a stage with all characters still alive to unlock the ability to use Salvage tokens on that stage.
There are three different token types, Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each type of token gives a greater chance at picking up more loot.
Gold= Highest chance Silver = Medium Chance Bronze = Base chance
Players will now receive a ranking at the end of each stage based on the number of surviving characters on their team relative to the number of characters the player brought during that stage.
Once a player achieves a 3-star ranking, they can spend Salvage tokens to instantly clear the stage, receiving any drop rewards from that stage, just as if they had played through the stage normally.
Gear descriptions now provide a detailed list of content where an item can be found.
Players can tap on this list to go directly to the content in question, and search for items.

Build 2.7 Undocumented changesEdit
-Renamed Leader skill AP bonus:
With the release of the armory, the various AP bonuses have changed. New levels have been added, and some have been simply renamed.
For example, what used to be called Large (+8 AP) is now called Very Large.
This wording inconsistency is slated for an update in our 2.7 release.Dash *Scopely*
Build 2.6.5 22 june 2016Edit
v2.6.5 release / weapon disassembly announcement
2.6.5 is now out on both Android and iOS.
It should be noted that while this patch is intended to correct the weapon disassembly bug, the fix for that particular issue will not take effect until after a server update, which will happen sometime tomorrow (6/22/16).
Until that server update goes live we encourage players to not disassemble weapons.
We appreciate all of your support and patience, as we've worked towards a solution to this issue.
Build 2.6.4 16 june 2016Edit
- Fixes a common crash that could occur on iOS devices when tapping on certain buttons
- Fixes an issue where weapons acquired before version 2.6 produced identical parts when disassembled
- Fixes the Impair effect from the Neutralize specialist skill expiring immediately when used by defenders
- Fixes an issue where the Human Shield specialist skill couldn't be used after a character was revived
- Fixes a visual issue where the speedup buttons in the armory tutorial showed a non-zero coin cost
- Enables long press and 3d touch for selection of multiple weapons in the armory for disassembling
We've hit some snags with both the client and server updates we hoped to release this week, and both will be delayed. A server update will be rolling out gradually over the course of the coming days days which resolves the issue with disassembling pre-2.6 weapons, and the 2.6.4 client update currently on beta (with the other bug fixes in the list above) will be replaced by a 2.6.5 version before going live to the global audience.
Exact time frames on these updates aren't yet fixed, but we'll update you as we these become available.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We are working very hard towards swift resolution.
Build 2.6 [8 June 2016]Edit
-Starting at Town Hall level 8, players can convert an abandoned house into an Armory. In the armory, players can upgrade and customize their weapons in various ways:
Upgrade the value of a basic stat (e.g. Bonus Attack 20% --> 23%) Replace one basic bonus with another (e.g. Bonus Attack --> Bonus Defense ) Add or replace a special property (e.g. chance to stun when attacking) Reset a weapon back to it’s default stats and un-modified status Disassemble unwanted weapons into parts for the Armory to use Combine lower tier parts to make higher tier parts for the Armory to use
-The bonuses on a weapon are now organized into three separately customizable slots. -Weapons now have a power rating and rank based on the quality of their bonuses. -Weapons will change in appearance when reaching the Gold and Legendary ranks. -The best weapon properties come with an optional name upgrade for a weapon. -The maximum number of Houses has been reduced by one to make some room. -Houses now hold more survivors per level, to keep survivor space the same.

Please see our Armory FAQ for a more detailed information about the feature!
Recruits & Rewards Tokens

Build 2.5 11 may 2016Edit
Release notes = 2.5 beta notes
Changes: 7 minute scouting period using Raid energy, with nothing to gain (no rep, no pts for the war, no war cans)

That's something that was tried out in beta, but what we're going with for the next war is a 7 minute scouting period, which replaces the existing 5 minute pregame period (where you couldn't do anything at all for the war). This should be at least a little more interesting, and we'll likely explore different drops and things during scouting in future wars.

The notes are the same. There were no additional changes in beta except bug fixes.

Is this a deliberate feature?
We tried to make this a bit more streamlined with the new team hub setup, but if this needs better warnings or feedback that's something we can look at for a future update. Thanks for the input.
Build 2.5 Beta, May 3, 2016 [Update 2.5.34079] Edit
Latest beta update. Long press to collect resources broken.
This was causing a bunch of crashes, so it's been disabled until those crashes can be resolved. Sorry about that. Dash *Scopely*
The beta build of 2.5 was updated yesterday (3 may 2016), to address several major bugs discovered during testing. Two things are required for that to go live: we have to determine that there are no additional critical issues, and the app update has to clear the app store review process with Apple. Store review typically takes about a week and a half, assuming there are no issues found, so that's a good general guideline for when 2.5 will arrive for the general audience. Dash *Scopely*
Please be advised that there will be a force update to Build 2.4 on Thurs March 31st 2016 at 7am PST. Please update manually before hand to avoid any possible gameplay interruption.
1. 30-Day Pass - A new efficient way to get coins is now available! This 30-day pass gives the holder an allotment of coins once a day when logging in for 30 days. On top of this daily gift of coins, pass holders also receive a special bonus reward on the 30th day. (Note: The daily gift happens at log-in, so be sure to log in every day to get your coins)
2. iOS 3D Touch Support - We now support iOS 3D touch for a number of actions. Unless noted otherwise, support for these actions are supported on other devices via long press.
Note that iOS 3D Touch is only supported on the 6S or 6S+ devices running iOS.
App Icon Contextual Press (iOS 3D touch-enabled devices only) - Hard press on the app icon from the home screen to quick jump to: My Faction, Roadmap, or Raids.
Rapid Resource Collection - Quickly collect all resources in town from your farm or material post by using a hard/long press on one of the buildings.
Quick Queuing of Training and Item Crafting - Pressing longer/harder on the "+" button increases the amount queued for production quickly.
Level Up - Press hard/long on a character in the Enhance screen to quickly select up to 10 characters with the same persona and rarity.
Quick Combat Information - Press hard/long on a character in combat to immediately show their combat information.
3. New Specialist Skill Added - Wait and see just what kind of skill these new specialists command.
4. Adrenaline Rush Update for Buffs and Debuffs: To allow for increased diversity of Adrenaline Rushes (ARs) moving forward, the mechanics of Buffs and Debuffs have been decoupled from the % Damage Increase, allowing for new ARs that only do buffs/debuffs.
In the new system damage will apply first and then buffs/debuffs. We recognized that this change decreases the damage of ARs that have a -DEF or a +ATK debuff/buff. Affected characters will have the damage portion of their AR increased slightly to compensate for the new system. While the total damage of their ARs may drop due to these changes, we had to take into account that the raw higher % damage they now have will combo more potently other buffs/debuffs in play.
4. Updates to Name Your Team Function
5. Various updates and bug fixes to increase game performance.
