Disney Heroes: Battle Mode Update 1.3

Welcome to our 1.3 Update! With this update, we’re ready to release The Heist to all servers. The Heist is a 5-player, real-time, cooperative mode where you work together to catch the elusive Thief who is relieving the City of its key valuables. It’s been incubating over on Server 1 since the 1.2 release and has received several tuning and bug fixing updates. We’re excited to finally share it with everyone!

In addition to the Heist, we’ve got our biggest group of new heroes since global release. Check out all the fun details below!

We’ve also got a couple smaller new features in Guild Perks and the Friend Finder. The new Guild Perks add both breadth and depth to the system and a whole new level: Guild Level 3. The Friend Finder is a handy new way to manage your Friend Campaigns. Details on both below!

Lastly, we’ve added a “What’s Coming Next?” section at the very bottom of the Patch Notes. We’ve got a number of big features in the works here, so we wanted to tease out some initial info for a taste of the exciting content to come.

Thanks to everyone for being an amazing and vocal player community. Enjoy the update!

  • Use the dropdowns at the top of the screen to:
    • Show all Friend Campaigns or just the ones you have unlocked
    • Sort the list by Friend Level, Friend Campaign progress or Memory Disk level

Improvements & Updates

  • We’ve made a few changes to how blocking and reporting players works
    • You must now block a player before you report them
    • Once you block a player, you must wait a week before you can unblock them
    • The block player list has been increased in size from 50 to 200
  • Creep Surge log improvements
    • Mercenaries are now marked when viewing lineups in the attack log
    • Rankings have been added back to the guild ranks log
  • The stage in which you are currently fighting is now highlighted in the City Watch

Bug Fixes

  • Update 1.2 contained a few badge plans that were not used by any hero
    • For update 1.3, these plans will be replaced with badges/plans used in Chapter 12
  • The app now automatically retries to download content after a timeout (due to bad connection)
  • You can no longer lose an Arena/Coliseum battle where your team is fully KO’ed but Judy Hopps still has her revive left
  • Sparring will no longer sometimes return you to the wrong chat channel
  • Guild Perks screen will no longer sometimes “forget” what page you were last on
  • The Disney Emoji list has been updated so emojis of the same type properly line up

What’s Coming Next?

We don’t always discuss what’s coming next in Disney Heroes:Battle Mode, in part because plans can change, but also because surprises are fun! But we wanted to take a little time with this release to cover the future…

We’re currently working on a feature called Challenges:

  • These are like bite-sized Contests (for example, beat City Watch on hard mode without using Yax) that you can do to win Stickers.
  • Stickers are unique pieces of art that are collected in books. Other players can see your stickers and books.
  • The current plan is for everyone to get 2 free challenges every Wednesday and have the week to work on them.
  • We will also have some other Challenges you can do anytime that can be purchased with diamonds.
  • Depending on further testing, we’re currently planning to release the Challenges feature with the 1.4, or possibly sooner.

Our next big feature is Guild Wars:

  • Guild Wars will take place over month-long Seasons. During a Season, guilds earn points for victories and progress up through 6 leagues.
  • Each individual war will be a head-to-head fight between two guilds.
  • Guild Wars last 2 days. The first day is a prep day where you can sabotage (!) other players. The second day is for attacks.
  • Attacks are Coliseum style with 3 lineups of 5 heroes each. Attackers will be able to trigger their heroes’ skills manually.
  • Defenders, in turn, will have defensive bonuses. There are nine battlefield locations where defenders can be placed. Each one has a unique bonus that defenders in ALL locations receive. Attackers need to clear out a location to remove the bonus.
  • There’s a good deal more to Guild Wars… but this gives you a high-level overview!
  • As with The Heist, we plan to take a cautious approach with Guild Wars, “beta” testing it properly on one server first and refining before releasing the feature game-wide.

After Guild Wars, our plan is build a big Tournament feature:

  • The current plan is a server-wide event where all players fight their way through a mini “campaign” (i.e. series of battles) that get progressively harder
  • Both players and guilds earn rewards depending on how far they progress through the campaign
  • Each campaign will feature different heroes who get buffs for that campaign.
  • Tournament rewards will likely include a variety of items, but the primary reward will be a new way to add power and customization to your heroes
    • This new power will be tied to the Orange rank

Last, but not least, we are working on ways to make playing the game easier:

  • As we add big new features, we don’t want playing Disney Heroes:Battle Mode to become a chore
  • So we’re looking at ways to make some modes less time consuming (looking at you, City Watch!)
  • And we’re also looking at ways to make managing your heroes and their progress simpler (Friend Campaigns and Missions in particular are getting a bit unwieldy after Team Level 70)
  • Our plan is to sprinkle these quality-of-life improvements in among the bigger features over the next few updates

Many of the ideas we get for improving existing features come directly from you, via forums, chat, customer support, etc. So keep the feedback coming!

wow, guys. I’m so happy with this. I am defending u all for the delay of this update in the last few days, and now I can see that i was right. big update. About the City Watch, I trully like the way it is today. Its my favorite game mode, and I dont think it tooks so much time.
I would like to see some more change in the city watch shop. Rex beeing add is a great thing, but by now, Violet and Mike in there just dont sounds right (everyone already got them 5 stars)
the only thing I ask is for u all communicate a little more with us. We only see u guys in here in the days of the update, and sometimes just a “dont worry, we’re working on it” would be helpful.
but congrats on the game. great work, great update!
