Topic: Football Saga / Announcement : Energy Mechanic Improvement

Hello All

So, after the last maintenance which was focused on the new energy system, we’ve got a lot of feedback. It seems there is an issue of players getting burn out from spending too much energy.

The 200 max energy pool and the new cool down time are a welcomed addition and thus will remain, but we will reduce the amount of energy restored each time you level up from full recovery to just additional 30 energy. We decided not to fully remove this energy level up recovery as it is a good way to give small bonus for leveling activity and to encourage new users.

Sorry for this inconvenience but thanks a lot for your great feedback. This new implementation will come very soon on the next update.

Topic: Football Saga / Announcement : Energy Mechanic Improvement

Within next week, we’ll adjust the energy system as below :
1. The maximum pool of energy will be increased to 200
2. The cooldown of 1 energy will increase to 4 minutes
3. Every time you get to level up, the energy will be restored to maximum.
4. Small increase on energy drink large’s price from 18 to 25 stars to match its newly benefit.

For point 1 & 2, we consider that waiting every 5 hours will get some players tired of playing it, so with the new balancing the energy will full in 13 hours, we hope this can make players won’t feel pressured.

Please share your thoughts in the forum or feedback post.

Topic: Football Saga / Is the match-engine reliable?

Hello Guys

So Elven has thought the team about this issue, unfortunately he can’t answered it too :D
Because it’s always complicated when we talk about match engine.

So here it is the answer from our game designer :

The design for substitution works a little bit tricky. There are many factors that can trigger a substitution. The thing is, there is different priority between the two teams that are currently playing.

For a winning team maintaining a good condition within their squad is the highest priority. But if a team is currently in draw state or losing, the priority will be to replace the underperformed player.

It gets trickier when the engine search for a substitution, because it will be looking for the most suitable player at the bench to replace the current one. If there is none, the engine will try to have another solution such as trying to substitute another underperformed player.

And because injury affects the player condition, it can be ignored by the engine, as long as he can still play well. Injuries itself has different level of severeness. So for critical and severe injury situation we can guarantee that the player will always be subbed (if the team still has the substitution rights).

So yes, unfortunately the scenario such as you provided in the screenshot can almost happen to any team mostly when the game is still in a draw state or losing. And there are also other different kind of situations that can trigger the subs such as red card situation on goalkeepers or defender.

There is no update at the moment for the match engine, but we will review it at some point by referring to your input to make the engine more reliable and wiser.

I hope this insight could satisfy your curiosity for the time being. Sorry for the injured players, they are the true fighter of this cruel football world :D

Will there be tiers for Valthirian Arc Art? I love the designs for that stuff, and digital samples sketches and initial drafts would be lovely.

I’d still support it anyways even without rewards though since it’s Valthirian Arc.

Hai, yes there will be tiers… we will announce it when the time comes :D

======= UPDATE =======

Thanks for your support! Today we are going to confirm that Valthirian Arc: Red Covenant will be developed through a Kickstarter campaign! The Kickstarter campaign date may vary on either October 12 or October 13 depending on your timezone.

Since the release of Valthirian Arc II, we’ve been asked by many to create the third installment to the series. Since few months ago, we’ve received tons of great suggestions and ideas for expanding the gameplay and bringing it into bigger audience.
We believe that fans are the driving force which has shaped this game from the very start. You are truly the foundation of the Academy. So we decided to launch a Kickstarter campaign to improve the game further and create more awareness for a bigger market. With your help the new Valthirian Arc is going to happen! At next posts, we will discuss about improvements planned for the new game, so you will learn more about it.

We want to create this Valthirian Arc to be the BEST Valthirian Arc in the series! If you share that dream, this is your chance. Let’s create the new Valthirian Arc together!

well noted, fascinating idea guys! Our team has been read all your suggestion. We will give updates about Valthirian Arc, so, stay tuned on this thread :p

And we still need another feedback to be discussed with our team. Please let me know if you have another idea :)

Topic: General Gaming / Valthirian Arc: Suggestion for The New Game

That’s a nice discussion here. We already sent all your idea to discussed with our team.
By the way, If you have played the second game, there are nations like Ramathyr and Kawiya, also several minor places inside and outside the Kingdom of Valthiria.

People said the world is a big place, so does the world of Valthirian Arc. In the previous games, we were focused at the academy itself most of the time. So now we are considering to expand it far and beyond. We surely need your suggestions in this matter too! So here are the questions:

1. In your opinion, how massive the world in the new Valthirian Arc should be?
2. Do you want your academy to interact with other nations/factions/cultures?
3. How much do you want your academy to affect the world?

We are more than happy to know your thoughts about it! :D

One of the things I really want to see in VA3 is more character-classes. Since I was rather disappointed that VA2 had less variety than VA1.

Also a Favorites Teams would make it easier to select the usual and often-used students.

Another thing would probably be the return of the “Principal Power” from VA1. Instead of making it random, it could maybe be skills that you could buy with gold, RP, or whenever the Academy levels-up, etc.

MY SUUUUUUUUUUGESTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1.)ive been in love with this game since its first release especially the art !!
2.)while on the second release the only good thing was theres was building option and also more classes but the other class needs firing assistance especially the mage and sorcerrer class and also its buggy game even though good job

SUGGESTION ON THE THIRD RELEASE!!!!
*Bring back the pixelated sprite i love it and also low on space and less buggy
*Bring on those classes especially adding a third job would be nice example:Priest-Bishop-Pope
*Also add those rarity on students like poor-normal-rare-epic-legendary
*Also those building things add them :)
*Pls dont make it turn based it would make the game slower or maybe an option between time battle and turn based so we can change option between a turn based type and a real time
*Loot item in finishing a quest
*Also the errand quest like searching things is insane especially when ur sorrounded by higher lvl monster add a map at least and their location
*For me focus on making the game less buggy and great art and especially a great story

Thats all and waiting for ur next release:)

Hi, thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it. From all suggestions here, we’ve already discussed all of your ideas with our team. we are so excited with your feedback.

If you still have any idea, please let me know. We will try hard to make the new Valthirian Arc more interesting than before.

why not some kind of battle or contest between academy.
The favorite students or else allow us to make groups/party.

First, I agree to this. Of course, you’re not the only academy out there. There should be other academies too. This is a good feature to add because the game becomes a little bit boring if you are only doing quests. There should be other events aside from that.

Second, speaking of events, I’m not talking about a single event. There should be events because like what I’ve said, the game becomes a little bit boring if quests are your only priority. Such examples are school festivals, and the one that he have mentioned before, the competitions.

Third, this is just my personal opinion but I think adding a story even after the main quests ended would be good. Like for example, you defeated the bad guy at the end so everybody is celebrating. But then you discovered something that ultimately leads to another story which is bigger. Like after defeating the bad guy, you discovered that his powers came from this dungeon or whatever. And then quests have been available where you enter that dungeon and try to conquer it. There are other examples and I think it would be helpful.

1.Higher level cap.

Lastly multiple story routes with each having their own unique quests, items and students this gives the game more replayability.

Contest between academy, sounds cool. And for the story, we still try to make it more fun and interesting. Thank you so much :D

More classes please.
Also, it would be good if you had more rooms and made it easier to level up the academy.

From your opinion, what type of classes should be added?
