    UPDATE (7/10): The build is now LIVE. Enjoy!

    UPDATE (7/9): The new build will be released TONIGHT and will officially be live as of 7/10/17 in all time zones (if not sooner).


    The Eliza Relic is scheduled to be live on Sundays but - since this update was unexpectedly delayed - we are going to extend the Eliza Relic availability until end of day Monday (alongside the Filia Relic). This will be a one time only event after which the Eliza Relics will resume their normal schedule on Sundays.


    ~

    Our next 1.2.3 update will be going LIVE within the next week or two (we will update this thread when we know the exact date). 1.2.3 is mostly focused on Bug Fixes and Eliza Updates - see the end of the post for more details regarding our next Major update in late July.

    In the meantime, notes on the changes you can expect below!

    ELIZA RELICS ENABLED
    • After this update, the Eliza Relic will now be available every Sunday.
    • This means you can now gain access to all Eliza Fighters (including those not previously available as Prize Fight rewards):
      • BRONZE
        • In Denile
        • Decrypted (NEW!)
      • SILVER
        • Scarlet Viper
        • Bloody Valentine (NEW!)
      • GOLD
        • Diva Intervention
        • Bloodbath (NEW!)
    GENERAL COMBAT UPDATES & BUG FIXES
    IMPORTANT NOTE: All these changes apply to player Fighters as well as AI opponents
    • Light Combo > Back Dash
      • You can now “cancel” from Light combo attacks into Back Dash
      • This helps players “abort” combos mid-way through when they realize their opponent is blocking
    • Special Move Crashes
      • Fixed bug that would cause certain Special Moves (Filia's Hairball, Parasoul's Taunt, Peacock's George's Day Out, etc) to reliably crash on certain devices
    • Stun Animation Transitions
      • Fixed issue that made it possible to block during a STUN animation
      • Fixed issue that made it possible to throw break during a STUN animation
      • Sped up transition into STUN animation from recovery animations (knockdown, etc) to increase opportunities to capitalize on STUN states triggered during combos
    • Dual BB3 Soft Crash
      • Fixed issue that would allow two BB3s to fire at the same time, causing a soft crash
    • Unresponsive Moves
      • Fixed issue that would cause shuffling of Moves/BBs to create a state in-game where tapping on the icon would do nothing
    • Errant Move Triggering Behavior
      • Fixed issue where BBs that are queued before BB meter is drained by another modifier to fire off anyway, even while meter is empty
      • Fixed issue where BBs/SMs that are queued before a Disable buff is applied to fire off anyway, even while the Disable buff is active (this was also occurring for AI opponents)
      • Fixed issue where cooldown on SM is triggered without actually being executed if queued during a BB
      • Fixing issue that would cause specials to accidentally trigger instead of being queued during blockbusters (especially for for Eliza and Big Band)
    CHARACTER SPECIFIC UPDATES
    • Cerebella
      • Enemy Cerebellas will now properly tag in above the player
      • Restored old Trip Attack timing/logic (from 1.2.0) to increase the utility of Trip attacks in combos
    • Eliza
      • Significant Sekhmet Mode Improvements
        • Sekhmet charge attacks are now Unblockable
        • If stunned in Sekhmet mode, Sekhmet will transition back to Eliza mode and play her STUN animation
        • All Sekhmet BBs (Turn, Bite, and Fury) now have shorter startup time and trigger heavy hit pause to improve combo-ability
        • Fixed issue where Filia's BB Gregor Samson could cause Sekhmet to get stuck in her "transition to Eliza" animation
        • Fixed issue where Sekhmet mode "button" would block inputs even when the button wasn't visible
        • If a move is queued while Eliza is in Sekhmet mode, she will now transition back to Eliza mode and execute the move, instead of transitioning back to Eliza mode and doing nothing (despite still triggering the cooldown/meter drain for the move)
      • Bloodbath
        • Fixed issue with Bloodbath SA Sanguine Solo that would cause Parasoul Tear-triggered BLEEDS to not convert to REGEN
      • Bloody Valentine
        • Fixed issue with Bloody Valentine SA Pyramid Scheme that would cause her to regen health after she was already KOed, thus resurrecting her
    • Filia
      • Bad Hair Day ATK increased back to original 1.2.0 values
      • Fixed the amount of "lift" granted by Filia's dash attack against a mid-air opponent to avoid potential infinite combos
    • Painwheel
      • Updated BB1 Death Crawl so Painwheel will properly reverse direction mid-crawl and end up back where she started
    • Peacock
      • Rerun ATK increased back to original 1.2.0 values
      • SM Who's On Second no longer has invincibility frames
    • Valentine
      • Fixed issue where using SM Burst to interrupt BB1 Checkmate Incision could cause a soft crash
    PRIZE FIGHTS
    • Best Team instead of Most Recent Team (for real this time!)
      • Now, the BEST team you have used (based on FS) for a given Event will be the “rep” team that other players will see
      • Previously, your LAST team was always what was recorded as your “rep” team for a given event
    • Improper Fighter Tiers
      • Fixed issue that cause Evolved Fighters to appear using their base tier instead of their evolved tier
    • Improper Rank Rewards
      • Fixed issue where some Prize Fights would grant incorrect Rank Rewards at the end of the event
    OTHER FIXES & IMPROVEMENTS
    • Android Team Select Crashes
      • Fixed issue causing the game to crash when tapping FIGHT on Team Select on certain Android devices
    • Move Loadout Inconsistency
      • Fixed issue that would cause move loadouts to not be saved when dragging moves between slots
    • Move Substats not being Applied
      • Fixed bug that would sometimes cause sub-stats to not be applied in a given fight
    • Mysteriously Locked Skill Tree Nodes
      • Fixed bug that would prevent players from unlocking certain nodes on the Skill Tree if they have accessed the node via another node on the same tier, but had not yet unlocked a linked node on a lower tier
    • Elemental Advantage Pop-Up
      • Cleaned up presentation and updated icon layout to match button layout
    As always, please share your feedback about what changes you like, and what you’d like for us to add next. We’re listening!

    NEXT MAJOR UPDATE PREVIEW
    Although this update is primarily focused on Bug Fixing, our next update (planned for late July) will include a new Character from the original Skullgirls roster, brand new Story Mode content, and more!

    More to come on our next update in a future forum post - stay tuned!

    Oh so we have Ms. Fortune and Double left from the original cast, this could be interesting but my money's on Ms. Fortune, it seems a bit too early story wise to put Double in

    Oh man you have no idea how happy that Filia Hairball crash being fixed has made me!
    Sekhmet buffs sound great too, and that ability to backdash out of jabs. Filia is king.

    This looks like a really solid patch! :D

    Not only is this game fun (besides the crashing but I won't sleep over it), devs always keeps the players opinions and suggestions in consideration which makes this game so much better. Thanks for the info M.Zug and thanks to the team for such a great game. Keep up the good work!

    If it's Ms. Fortune i'm very curtious how they dealt with having to control the head and body seperately, or if we only get full-body Ms. Fortune.

    I have a feeling that it will be similar to sekhmet in which you'll use a skill/BB and it will come out for a small amount of time in which it will do attacks alongside you but if you get hit it will be 1.5 the damage instead of 1.0 like the original game.

    I would really, really love it if the next cards released were Ms. Fortune themed, but I have my reservations because on the Character Design Paradigms post, they already mention Double and Beowulf which lead me to believe those are the characters they are considering adding next. I hope I'm wrong though because I have over 5K gems and 33 Relics I have saved up for new cards.

    But remember they said original cast and Beowulf was dlc so I doubt we'll see him and a story patch is also coming with the character which would probably make more sense for Ms. Fortune since her backstory isn't really fleshed out rather than doubles but there is always a possibility that Double will make it im just not holding my breath for that.

    The most awesome parts are the crash fixes! Finally I won't dread fighting Filias in Prize Fight. I also appreciate Cerebella's Trip Attack being reverted as it felt unintuitive to not be able to combo moves like such. I'll definitely test Eliza in the field and see how she stacks up after the buffs. Also, really looking forward to the new character. I lied before and THAT has to be what gets me most excited! I bet it's Double.

    I personally believe it will be Double because of the Story Mode: we've been told that there will be at least one new chapter, which could make Double's appearance more viable, and Ms. Fortune does not yet have the Life Gem according to the story so far, so unless she will be introduced without any severing/rejoining powers and instead just a human, it's unlikely. However, if the new chapter does cover the theft of the Life Gem...

    Does this mean Eliza fighters and moves will be available in other relics as well? Like Premiere and Shard relics?

    With 8 fighter relics being released, will they be rotating on a 8-day cycle? or a 7-day cycle with two choices on one of the days?

    YASSSS Hairball and 'Bella sweep fixes thank you

    Also yeah i'd bet on Ms. Fortune being next since she actually appears in the cutscenes and in the first loading screen the app boots with.
