The amount of gold consumed via “Exploration” will be changed from “30G every 100km” to “20G every 100km”. The amount necessary to go through the obstacles (ocean, dessert, mountains, etc.) will also be lowered.

Adjustments for the PlayStation 4 version
The “button confirmation screen” in the OPTION menu’s controller settings can be closed with the “Touchpad” or the “OPTIONS” button.
*This is to avoid the problem, that occurs in some of the arcade sticks, in which players would get stuck on the “button confirmation” screen being unable to quit without closing the application.
Fixed instances in which the game would crash if older unsupported replay data was found in the “REPLAY” list when selecting “Battle Log” or “Favorites”.
The matching system will be improved by adding various rank thresholds. If an opponent is not found. When searching for an opponent in “RANKED MATCH”, an opponent with similar ranked will be searched, but if no one is found the search restrictions will be relaxed gradually until someone is found. First the system will search for an opponent with a small gap in rank, if the search is still negative the system will look for an opponent with a medium gap in rank and so forth until an opponent can be found. This way, the chances of finding someone at the player’s rank or close it becomes much higher.
*This is only relevant the PlayStation 4 and STEAM versions.
*For Xbox One there is no change as the search is done on the constructor side.
The obtained RP will be increased when the rank is lower than “G1” and winning against an opponent with a rank difference.
For battles in which players are between “C5” and “B1”, the amount of RP gained will be increased when fighting against an opponent lower than a certain rank.
The upper rank limit of the consecutive bonus application will be augmented from “G1” to “E1”. The scale factor to RP caused by the consecutive win will be increased. It is for those players who have capability to win consecutively in the current rank can go up faster to the rank with the players with similar skills.
In the “RANKED MATCH” and “CASUAL MATCH”, the filer “all” in the “language” and the “area” settings will be changed to “Other Regions”. This is a text correction only to give a better understanding of the filter without a change in its usage.
*Before this update, even if the filter is set to “all”, this does not mean that all the players become eligible for matchmaking. It means that all matchmaking is done among the players who selected the filter “all”. As this is a source of misunderstanding, with this update we have changed the name of the filter.
*We are investigating any other unexpected issues in an orderly fashion. We apologize for any inconvenience caused. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

1. The removal of “language” and “area” filters.
2. Setting the “ping/connection” filter to “more than 4 bars” by default.
