It's that time! The Coliseum Technical Beta has kicked off, and we'd love for you to be involved. Our first few days of the beta will focus on specific aspects and features of the game, so please check back on this thread for instructions.





How to Participate

Participating in the beta is voluntary and there is no need to sign up or opt-in. Simply visit the Coliseum Beta link in the lefthand navigation menu to get started. It's that easy!

NOTE: The following elements have been disabled in the beta version to avoid disruption to any live dragons or items:
  • Dragon energy will not be lost (either while fleeing or losing a battle)
  • Dragons will not gain experience
  • Loot will not be awarded
  • Battle Stones and stats cannot be altered
  • Items cannot be used in battle

We encourage everyone to use dragons that are somewhat already equipped to be fighting in the Coliseum and don't need to have their battle stones or stats adjusted. In fact, it is crucial at this point that Coliseum players attempt to play as normal as they would in the current version so that we can ensure there isn't dramatic disruption to current play styles.

Keep in mind that while you are using your real dragons for testing, if you decide to alter their battle stones or stats for purposes of trying something out in the beta, we will not be able to offer reimbursements or restorations of items used for this purpose.

It's so good on mobile!

It used to be so irritating to try and click things on mobile because the response time was so bad, you had to press and hold everything (or at least I did) and it made playing so tedious. But now it's so quick and responsive! Picking your team also used to be the nightmare to end all nightmares on mobile, but it's so nice now.

Fantastic job, staff! <3
