· The creation of the second campaign is initiated; it implicates performing PvP mode introductory missions and police contracts.

· New missions are added: to buy the second mercenary, to perform contracts, to find lieutenant Gatts.
· 6 new quests were designed to show new players PvP mode. After you pass the Police Department and reach level 4, you’ll get simple missions to participate in PvP and instructions. These quests will be available for all players.
· New players are provided with the PvP section, closed from other players:
· One mercenary duel is available until level 7 since 1-on-1 duel is relevant for Recruit class only; class duels are intended for 2 or 3 mercenaries.
· Some arena modes have been removed but (e.g. the Survival mode), but they will be played in the form of Events, other modes do not open immediately:
- 2 mercenary duels and team battles with a partner - level 6.
- 3 mercenary duels and team battles of 6-8 players - level 8.
Player’s levels are stated, not mercenary’s. Open the mode with a player who has reached level 8, then you can take mercenaries with level 4 and higher.
· Survival mode is removed from regular PvP.
We know that a small duel is popular, but LS is based on group tactics. Balance is calculated upon team cooperation and a certain number of enemies. At this point battles with one character cannot be group battles. We believe that all players who love this mode will go for bigger duels (if they want to control their side completely) or TB (if they want to control just one character). Removal and successive opening of new modes is designed to concentrate players in less number of modes with faster and well-balanced connection.
