Release Plan & Updates For Origin (Battles v3)
Alpha Launch Release
The launch of Origin is planned to be globally available via Mavis Hub and Android APK. While the game is on Alpha, the developers will be looking into user feedback to further refine the game before the official release.
They have also mentioned that there will be no SLP or AXS rewards during this period. All resources earned during the Alpha version will reset once the official game is launched.Battles V3 (Origin): Release Date & News
Season 0 - Alpha Release
Once the Alpha phase is over, season 0 will officially launch along with core updates based on user feedback during the Alpha. It is possible that Battles v2 will continue running until the developers are fully ready for the transition.
New Mechanics For Origin (Battles v3)
Currently, in Battles v2 the players will have to choose the cards simultaneously at the start of the round. In Axie Origin, players will have to take sequential turns during the match and choose the cards that will be immediately played. This is intended to make the game fast-paced and more engaging.
Energy & Cards Resets Each Round
Energy and cards that are unused after the round will no longer accumulate during the match. This will be implemented to give less incentive for players who skips their turn to save energy and cards.
New mechanics for retaining energy and cards will be introduced along with these new changes.Energy Gain & Reset Guide
Card Changes & Updates
Most of the cards in the game will have to be played differently in Origin, the card description and effect will be changed, along with the attack and defense value of each card.
Eyes And Ears Cards
Currently in Battles v2, each Axie only has 4 cards depending on their body part. In Origin, the eyes and ears part will also provide cards, giving each Axie a total of 6 cards.
Runes & Charms - Power-Ups
In Origin, there will be power-ups (Runes and Charms) that you will be able to equip on your Axie to gain various buffs and enhancements.
You will be able to craft these power-ups by using resources called Moonshards along with SLP, these Moonshards can be gained by winning battles in Origin. Equipping runes will provide passive powers for your Axies, while charms are wearables that can enhance the ability of your Axie.
Each season, the Runes, Charms, and Moonshards that you have will be removed. This will make the players continuously hunt for resources to upgrade their Axies. In addition, the Runes and Charms that depreciated can be disenchanted to recover some of the resources used for crafting.
Players are also able to collect or be rewarded with Legacy Runes and Charms. These items can be extremely rare and unique.
Critical Hits & Rage System
Currently, critical hits are too random and it can often affect the outcome of the game. Because of this, they have decided to introduce a new mechanic called Rage. This will accumulate throughout the battle and it can be used against opponents.Crit And Skill Computation & Formula
Simpler Axie Stats
Since Origin is shifting to become a turn-based game with new mechanics, stats such as Speed will now be irrelevant. In Origin, Axies will now only have hit points (HP) stats.
Starter Axie (Free Axies)
Numerous starter Axies will be available to play the game for free both in Adventure Mode and Arena Mode. These Axies are not NFTs and will not be able to earn SLP rewards.
Players will be able to unlock more starter Axies as they progress in Adventure Mode (PVE).
Tutorials & New System
Players will be able to gradually unlock different features as they progress through Adventure Mode (PVE). These tutorials will help old and new players to make sure that they can adapt to these new changes.
Tutorials can be revisited by players to review new mechanics and features anytime.
