Offline Gameplay

  • Adjusted difficulty of approaching challengers

Online Gameplay

  • When matching in Quickplay, the Format setting of your Preferred Rules will be more highly prioritized. This may cause matchmaking to take more time, and there's still no guarantee that you'll find a match that has your exact Preferred Rules.
  • Increased the stability of the synchronous connection within Battle Arenas.
