A new era starts in Basketball Arena with the 1.5 update. There will be major changes in general game progression and matchmaking logic.
- Unlocking Character Slots
Before this update, you had to use different coaches to select 2 or more characters. Also, each coach had their own contracts, which were not always easy to get. From now on, you will spend League Tickets instead of different coach contracts. All players will start the game with 2 characters. You’ll have to progress in your career to unlock extra character slots permanently. At 400 cups, you will unlock your third character slot and at 1500 cups, you will unlock your fourth character slot permanently.
Cups let you show your Basketball Arena skills. When you win a match, you earn cups and if you lose one you will lose some cups. You can progress in your career and win valuable rewards with cups. There is also a career leaderboard where you can see the most skilful players on a global and local scale.
Since character slots unlock permanently with cups, your opponents will have a similar character count. So it’s going to be less likely for you to have “2 vs 3”, “ 2 vs 4” or “3 vs 4” kind of match.
- Career Progression
Your Career progression will also be based on your Cups. You will reach a new step in your career each time you collect the required number of cups. The rewards you’ve collected from the career will not be affected even if you lose your cups.
- League Tickets
We are aware that you have so many contracts for different coaches and we are not going to let them go to waste. All of your (common, rare, and epic) coach contracts will convert into League Tickets. Your total number of contracts will be given to you as League Tickets. League Ticket free refill cap is 50.
New players will start the game with 50 League Tickets. As you start using your League Tickets, you will receive a free one every 15 minutes. Also, you can watch videos to get free League Tickets.
