So, we decreased the damage of some skills. Weapon Adjustments I. Spear 1. Slightly reduced the knockback distance of spear horizontal strike's first attack when charged. This should make it easier to follow a second attack. 2. Optimized the feel of following Uppercut Slash after the second attacks of spear horizontal or vertical strikes. 3.

Can we have a pre-set for each hero’s weapon skins? The function of customized content such as matching different weapon skins according to different outfits is already in the works, Our goal is to allow players to mix and match the appearance content more freely and conveniently. 2. Will you consider giving a skin to Tianhai's ult? We love the big guy! We're currently ideating on the design and what kind of skins would look good on his ult, so let us know in the comments if you have any ideas, we'd love to hear! 3. Is it possible to add execution animations? As seen in the trailers, we experimented with execution animations, but in multiplayer games, the long animation doesn’t perform well and inconveniences players. We'll try to incorporate the execution in a more appropriate way later on. 4. Will player’s health in duo mode be adjusted? There will be slight adjustments, like the Tianhai ult. 5. It is strongly recommended to use the whole three rounds of two wins in Bloodsport. We have adjusted the gameplay, starting from the first round with the best of three games, and optimized the lineup selection process. 6. Can you set the cooldown time of skills by yourself in customized lobby? It's too time-consuming to practice with friends and wait for CDS. We're going to add full hero stat customization, skills cooldown, and more. We hope to make custom rooms more creative, and we'll continue to add custom room support in the future.NARAKA: BLADEPOINT WEEKLY FAQ 16/11Nov 16, 2021 - Community Announcements1.

The game has become laggy after the update and optimization seems to be worse Our background data shows that the performance has improved after each optimization. However, we've received feedback from many players suggesting that the optimization seems to be worse after the update. We will use a megathread to collect specific issues from players after the next update to further analyze what went wrong. Our goal is to continuously optimize the game for all users to enjoy the best experience when playing. You can also check out our patch note, which will mention some of the optimizations and bug fixes we have done. 2. Ping lock and queue time issues We have been working on this issue and would like to keep up with the community on our progress. We've been doing some gray testing and trying to balance between preventing players from encountering unstable players on the network, and longer match queue times. There are many different factors for high ping in the server, but know that we are working to address these issues that players have been facing! 3. Balance issues - Matari mechanics, longsword toothpicking These issues are often discussed both within the player community and internally. First, Matari, we understand how people feel about her, a beautiful female assassin, but it’s sometimes impossible to catch her. Heroes are never designed to be perfect, and Matari is not as hard to deal with in trios as she is in solo. You can use Temulch's ult to control her invisible teammates or use Viper's ult to keep them from using their stealth, and so on. The same goes for weapon balance. We've already made an adjustment to the longsword, and we're watching for the strength of toothpicking. 4. When will the new season start? The new season will begin after the November 11 GMT+8 update. 5. After the new season, will the Tidal Treasure pity pull be carried over to other chests? The Tidal Treasure pity pull is independent of other chests, and the attempt tallies will not be carried over to other chests. You will not be able to buy Tidal Treasure chests in the next season, but the ones already bought can still be opened. 6. Will the Spectral Silk Store items reset at the end of the season? The items in the Spectral Silk store will not reset at the end of the season. 7. Will the existing Hidden Coins disappear next season? The existing Hidden Coins will not be available next season. There will be new coins available for the next season. 8. Can the ranked resets and season rewards be revealed? The ranked season reset and season rewards will be announced a week or so in advance. 9. Why can I still play ranked after the Tidal Event is over, do I still gain LP? You can continue to play ranked and gain LP. At present, the season is still ongoing, only the Tidal Event is over. 10. I hope there will be a cool-down between bounty missions, I am often chased all over the map. We are re-evaluating the bounty mission time duration and the possibility of cool-downs. NARAKA: BLADEPOINT Update – October 28th, 2021Oct 27, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsDear players: The servers of NARAKA: BLADEPOINT will be suspended for maintenance from10/27/2021 23:00 (UTC) to10/28/2021 03:00(UTC). We suggest that you log out in advance and enter the game again after the maintenance. The details for this update are as follows: Heroes I. Valda Cui 1. Ultimate : Initiating a horizontal strike after using this ultimate no longer breaks enemies free from Bind. The hit rate of Valda's horizontal strikes has been improved, and she now has a new vertical strike in which she hurls forth a water spear: it travels slowly with a comparably low hit rate, yet deals high damage. //Comments from Dev Team: These changes were implemented given that was originally only meant to bind multiple enemies, but wasn't working as well as intended. Tips: Vertical strikes have a very low hit rate when used alone. Try linking them in with horizontal strikes as part of a combo! Weapons I. Longsword 1. Slightly shortened the stagger duration inflicted upon standing enemies with normal and running horizontal strikes. //Comments from Dev Team: The horizontal strike of Longsword contains probing, chasing and combo effects. The function is so comprehensive that we need to weaken it. II. Dagger 1. New weapon advantage: . If two players attack at the same time, the player using a Dagger won't clash, but demount the enemy's energy and initiate a counterattack. 2. Slightly slowed down the crouch/slideUppercut Slash. 3. Significantly reduced the distance that airborne enemies are knocked back when hit with a midair horizontal strike. Slightly shortened the stagger duration inflicted upon downed enemies. 4. Damage Adjustment: from 103%+155%*3 to 57% + 115%*2 + 287%. //Comments from Dev Team: Now the startup frame of DaggerUppercut Slash is reduced to the same as those of Katana and Longsword. We disconnected part of the long combo of Dagger to allow more space during the battle. At the same time, we added a new weapon advantage Energy Demount, in order that Dagger still maintains enoughfrontal fighting strengthwhile clashing. Ⅲ. Greatsword 1. Improved hit determination for horizontal strikes following vertical strikes/horizontal strikes following a horizontal-vertical strike combo. 2. Adjusted the Stone Form stagger that some attack moves inflict on Greatsword. 3. Slightly lengthened the timeframe in which can be followed up with a dodge. 4. Adjusted the damage dealt by charged horizontal and vertical strikes: Damage of the first-stage charged vertical strikes reduced from 224%+449% to 202%+403%; Damage of the second-stage charged vertical strikes reduced from 261%+522% to 238%+476%; Damage of the third-stage charged vertical strikes reduced from 291%+582% to 265%+530%; Damage of the first-stage charged horizontal strikes increased from 597% to 621%; Damage of the third-stage charged horizontal strikes increased from 247%*4 to 250%*4; //Comments from Dev Team: When the opponent uses some moves to attack the Greatsword, and the attack action is not o...NARAKA: BLADEPOINT Filming Contest: UNCHAINEDOct 26, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsCalling all aspiring filmmakers!

NARAKA: BLADEPOINT has been nominated as Best Multiplayer Game in the Golden Joystick Awards on games radar+! Cast your vote here: https://www.gamesradar.com/golden-joystick-awards-2021-nominations/Weekly FAQ - 10.26Oct 26, 2021 - Community Announcements1. We wish that Bloodsport can have a ranked system, a 3v3 option, more rewards, and maybe add spectators. First of all, we are thrilled to see that everyone likes this new mode, especially the devs responsible for designing Bloodsport! They really appreciate your love and enthusiasm. As of now, there is no plan for it to have a ranked system. However, this mode has a hidden MMRs system that will match opponents around your skill level. We are already discussing all the feedback and making considerations about how we can further improve players’ experience. We will continue working hard to optimize this mode in the future. Meanwhile, we are also designing a new team-based mode that will provide players with refreshing combat experience. 2. Lag spike at the beginning of the game Most likely, it is because your computer is reading map data. NARAKA's map is huge, so it takes some time to read and process it. As you may know, we have already carried out a wave of optimizations for non-SSD hard drives, and we will continue to do so in the future. 3. Can you reveal more information about the new hero Yueshan? We don't want to spoil too much of it, but we can provide a sneak peek at his story. Yueshan, the Unyielding, growing up in a military family, had been trained rigorously by his grand-father, and became one of the youngest commanders in the army. His skills will also be closely related to his background, and have an excellent new mechanism. Stay tuned! 4. When will there be a new Dagger skill Souljade? A new Dagger skill Souljade has already been designed and is currently undergoing internal testing and debugging. It’ll be available in the next update. 5. The Greatsword is too powerful. Everyone is using it. Greatsword has ranked the top performing weapon for the first time in the past two months. We will carefully evaluate the data and adjust the weapon accordingly to provide a more balanced combat experience. NARAKA: BLADEPOINT Update – October 14th, 2021Oct 13, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsDear players, The servers of NARAKA: BLADEPOINT will be suspended for maintenance from 10/13/2021 23:00 (UTC) to 10/14/2021 03:00 (UTC). We suggest that you log out in advance and enter the game again after the maintenance. New Mode: Bloodsport An all-new mode, 'Bloodsport', is now open! 16 players must face off against each other in locations across Morus Isle. Engage in 1v1 battles to rise up the ranks until a champion emerges! Details for this mode are as follows. 1. Bloodsport is available to all players, all day. 2.

Bloodsport is a melee-focused 1v1 game mode where players face off against their opponents by dueling them one by one as they make their way to the top. This mode will truly put players to the test! After all, becoming the best of the best means mastering all heroes and melee weapons. 2. About the weapon and character skill balancing 'Nerf this weapon/character... ' - Yes, we hear your requests and have been paying close attention to the feedback from players on balancing certain characters and weapons. For now, we would like to assure you all that we are working hard in the background to align the community's requests with what we see in the game data to improve the gameplay experience for everyone. We will release the balances once we have come to a satisfactory solution. 3. Issues with fps droprate After the September 28th update, some of the NVIDIA graphics card users are unable to use the function.

Keep you posted!NARAKA: BLADEPOINT Weekly FAQ 9/30Sep 30, 2021 - Community Announcements1.Malicious Teaming We do not tolerate any form of malicious teaming. We have been working to optimize the reporting process and handling current player reports. Now, when reporting a malicious teaming incident on our official website (https://www.narakathegame.com/reporthacker/), you can attach a picture alongside your report to provide evidence. In addition, a successful detection of collusion will grant the reporting player with an Immortal Treasure and be notified by an in-game mail. Once the teaming is confirmed, the teamer will not only be banned from matchmaking but also punished by a rank decrease. Our goal is to provide a fair game environment with strict standards to crack down on malicious teaming. Of course, this is not possible without the cooperation of our players. We hope that players who encounter teaming will provide us with POV, video, or screenshot. 2. Are there any new events/features/content coming? The development team is always working to bring fresh new content for our players. The new Koi Bonanza event will begin following the 9/28 update. The daily quest rewards (character experience, BP experience) that players receive will be doubled.

Is there anything planned for improving the match making for a better game experience? We are aware that many of our players experience poor matchmaking. This is a rather complicated issue which is caused by many different factors such as network connection quality, player skill evaluation algorithm, matchmaking algorithm, and others. The Dev team is actively investigating these issues and will gradually roll out online updates to mitigate the problem. Thank you all for your patience and understanding. We welcome any feedback and suggestions. **The National Day of the People’s Republic of China will span from October 1st to October 7th. For that reason, next week’s FAQ will be delayed to the week of Oct 11th . Not to worry, however, as we will continue to collect feedback during that period. We thank you for your understanding.
