AoV is dead?
It’s been a while now that publisher Tencent announced to drop the support for Arena of Valor both in NA and EU servers. This apparently happened to focus on the mobile version of League of Legends, so when Riot announced the release of Wild Rift for 2020, players already expected this to be AoV’s final killing blow.
However, Tencent suddenly decided to start all over again. Several Developer Letters got posted on Reddit during the last weeks, updates happen way more frequently again and so do special events. They even have a pretty active Discord server now and in their letters, the AoV staff extensively addresses game balance and player satisfaction to optimize the game experience. If anything, the game seems more vivid than ever!
Arena of Valor 2nd anniversary event
The actual event takes place from December 19th until January 12th. On the official Facebook page, we got a foretaste of what to expect, yet the devs also promised even more to come.
