Hey everyone! Our next update is arriving soon, and that update is... 4.1.1! "But what about 4.2!?" Although we're still hard at work on some larger features that will be arriving in our 4.2 update, we still wanted to release some improvements and fixes to some of our recent features that were added in 4.1. Rest assured that as soon as 4.2 is ready to go we'll get it in your hands ASAP. Some of the contents in 4.2 and beyond will be discussed in our 2020 roadmap post, which is arriving sometime next week. (February 10th - 14th) But for now, onto the present! Here's what we're including in our 4.1.1 update... Valentine's Day Event Our Valentine's Day Prize Fight returns for another year! The Roses are Red, Violence is Due Prize Fight will begin next week, February 11th. A big part of releasing 4.1.1 was also making sure that we could update this Prize Fight with some extremely juicy rewards for all of you, similar to our last few event Prize Fights. Most notably, three new milestones have been added with amazing rewards: MILESTONE 11 500 Gold Relic Shards 200 Fire Essence Shards MILESTONE 12 250 Diamond Relic Shards 300 Fire Essence Shards MILESTONE 13 [FINAL] 1x Legendary Relic 500 Fire Essence Shards Mark your calendars - you won't want to miss this Prize Fight!

You can grab this Relic as early as February 7th! (twitter.com/sgmobile) Social Hub The amount of Gifts that you have sent and received to and from a given Friend is now visible. Note that this is a retroactive change. You will be able to see the amount of Gifts sent and received between Friends from the start of 4.1 when the Social Hub was introduced, not the start of 4.1.1. You can now sort and filter your Friends list. The amount of Friends you have and the maximum Friend limit are now displayed. Various other user interface improvements have been made to the Social Hub and Friends list. Gifts Players can now claim Gifts and Gold Gifts over the 50 Gift limit if they are received as a reward from the mail, or a similar source. Players will be notified on the REWARDS screen if they can't receive any more random Gift drops from Fights because they are at the Gift limit. Gifts now provide less Rift Coins than they did previously. Match Challenges You can now view your Match Challenge progress on various screens throughout the game to help you keep track of which ones you still need to complete. Fixed a bug where landing the exact amount of combo hits needed to complete a Match Challenge would not count as finishing the combo. Note that combos performed on dead opponents do not count towards finishing the combo count Match Challenge. OTHER CHANGES Optimizations Improvements were made to reduce memory usage across the app to reduce the chances of crashing. If you're still experiencing crashes on low end devices, we recommend occasionally restarting the app during long play sessions. Big Band DREAM BAND - Dream Band will now receive IMMUNE every time he is knocked down, even if he doesn't have an active buff. Filia DREAD LOCKS - Reflect damage from her Signature Ability no longer activates when blocking hits. Valentine PYRO-TECHNIQUE - Enrage from her SA2 is no longer applied when the opponent blocks the hit. KILL JOY - Fixed an issue where Fighters would revive with 1% less health than intended. Squigly SM - Drag N' Bite - No longer activates the buff removal ability on blocked hits. SCARED STIFF - Fixed an issue where Scared Stiff wasn't reducing damage as accurately as she should have been. Catalysts DON'T POKE THE BUER - Fixed an issue where damage reflection wasn't applying correctly. Versus ROBO-FORTUNE - PROTOTYPE and ELIZA - INNER PIECES are now available to be used in Versus mode. Offers New "multi-fold" offers are available for select offers in the Store. These offers will present players with different versions of similar offers at the same time to allow for easier comparisons. UI Fixed an issue where "McG" could show up as the opponent's player name in Versus mode if your connection is unstable. Fixed an issue where blank panels could show up in the Friends list of the social hub. Getting an XP boost from a Gift or Gold Gift no longer displays the NEW tag. Players will not be prompted to recharge their Fighters using Energy Refills if they don't have enough Energy Refills to do so. Instead, the popup including Theonite (and any remaining Energy Refills you have) will show immediately. Removed filter options for Moves in Competitive Versus Mode. Fixed numerous missing instances of highlighted rarity text for Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Diamond across various areas in the game. Chat Chat history will no longer be deleted sometimes when entering a Fight. Modifiers Necrophage (Squigly Daily Event) - No longer activates on blocked hits. Fights Hopefully a final fix has been applied to the issue causing players to get stuck at the end of a Fight with the walking George icon. A retry prompt should now always appear after waiting 30 seconds. Please make sure to wait 30 seconds if you experience a connection issue after a match. Fixed a few lingering Fights where opponent's had less Moves equipped than desired. Localization & Text Numerous improvements to in-game text across multiple languages to either improve clarity or to correct mistakes. Rift Battles The doors to the SECRET SKELETON Rift Battle lobby have been closed... iOS A second swipe from the top of the screen is required to bring down the control panel / notifications panel and interrupt gameplay. Options The "HELP" button in the Options menu has been replaced with "DISCORD". A link to our forum and our email are still available if you ever need to get in contact with us. Tutorial Fixed an issue where force closing the app on a specific part of the tutorial could cause game data to become corrupted. Short and sweet! As mentioned above, this update is a little bit leaner than usual as we prepare a much more content rich update for 4.2.
