Your #1 Naruto Online Multiplayer Game
So like before, this is a mid bi-week balance. No new optimized or reworked characters, just balances to those who need them.
- Boosts: Hyuuga Neji, Rock Lee, Tenten, Tsuchi Kin, Drunken Lee.
- Nerfs: Kinuta Dosu.
- Rework: Aburame Shino.
- Tweaks: Haruno Sakura.
So, it's been two weeks since the first major balance and optimization where we worked over the first 9 characters. So today, the next 9 characters are up. That means, every character from Lee to Zaku has been optimized code wise, changed if their current design fell short, had their pictures updated, had their wording fixed and their profiles updated.
Additionally, we decided to split Lee up into two characters. Normal Rock Lee and Drunken Lee, which effectively makes this a 10 character week instead of 9. Drunken Lee is an unlockable character and can be found right next to Rehabilitated Gaara in the D/C section missions.
Hope you enjoy!
- Boosts: Uchiha Sasuke, Hyuuga Hinata, Gaara, Kinuta Dosu.
- Nerfs: Yondaime Hokage.
- Tweaks: Kankuro Abumi Zaku.
- Changes (minor): Hyuuga Neji, Temari.
- Reworks: Rock Lee, Tenten, Tsuchi Kin.
So, the next batch of optimized and updated characters won't happen until next week, but this week we are doing a small balance aimed at the last 9 we updated, and two really low performing characters.
- Boosts: Uchiha Sasuke, Hyuuga Hinata, Nara Shikamaru, Namikaze Minato, Edo Tensei Chukichi.
- Nerfs: Aburame Shino.
- Tweaks: Inuzuka Kiba.
So, let's get to it with all the news and what we will be trying to accomplish in the coming weeks.
Firstly, we are going through each character, and doing the following:
-Optimizing their code, and in turn, fixing all glitches and bugs associated with them.
-Updating all their pictures if they need to be updated.
-Updating their profile.
-Updating their skill descriptions.
-Doing balances on them if they are too powerful, or too weak.
-Reworking the characters if their design is not up to par.
This will take some time, and so far, we have gone through Uzumaki Naruto to Yamanaka Ino. This does not mean those characters will not see any further changes, but at the moment, all of the above has been accomplished on them.
Additionally, in each balance, we will be doing some minor nerfs or boosts to the very OP/UP characters, but those characters, who have yet to be optimized will not see any major change, or rework until we do get to them.
Now, we will be doing two passes over. This means we will go through each character in order, do what we said above, and then after we are done, go through them again to finalize a few things that need to be put in place that obviously never were. This will take time, and until it is all done, there will be some oddities, but bare with us, and with time, we will improve this game!
- Boosts: Uzumaki Naruto, Uchiha Sasuke, Akimichi Chouji, Yamanaka Ino.
- Nerfs: Yamato (S), Ao (S), Kyuubi Naruto (S), Edo Tensei Chiyo (S), Edo Tensei Fuguki (S).
- Reworks(Minor): Nara Shikamaru.
- Reworks(Major): Aburame Shino.
Well I had hoped to make this announcment at the start of this year but due to some unavoidable delays I am making it now. It is time for me to retire from my position here on Naruto Arena. I no longer have the time needed to dedicate myself to this site or the will(mega character batch releases take tons of work for one person I don't recomend any admin to do them) and the best thing for the site and you the players is to pass leadership on. I notified Spirit_in_Black and the web masters of my decision shortly before the new year and that Spirit should replace me as head Admin. He is the obvious choice due to his years of service on Naruto Arena and his works on Soul Arena. Please show him the respect and suppport that you showed me and thank you one last time for your support of Naruto Arena over the years. Oreacharound signing off for the last time~
P.S.: Please give him time to catch up to speed.
