○ A notification will display on the Home screen when it is within three days of the start of the next season and the following are true:

・ You have a Hero in the additional slot on your defensive team, but you will no longer be able to use the additional slot because your tier will drop in the following season.
・ Your Fortress (D) level will drop because your tier will drop in the following season.

○ Some structures have had their level cap increased.

■ Other Changes

○ A notification will appear on the Home screen when three days or more have passed since the Arena season began and you haven’t participated in an Arena battle.

You can turn this notification off in Settings.

○ Adjustments have been made to how Hero movement is displayed on the map.

There were cases when Heroes appeared to be moving through spaces they could not move through due to effects such as Obstruct, which limit Heroes’ movement, so the display of Hero movement paths is being revised. Note that this is only an issue with the way Hero movement has been displayed up until now, and there are no issues with the effects of these skills.
